Ghetto Contest Voting

Unread postAuthor: mark.f » Tue May 03, 2011 9:30 am

Time to vote, people. The poll will stay open for five days from now.

The list below shows the entries, which were posted in the other thread.

People voting should take into consideration:

1.) Use of materials
2.) Creativity
3.) Your personal reaction

Contest entrants may not vote for themselves. Unfortunately, there's no way to enforce this, so, as clemsonguy1125 said, we'll just go with the honor code.

ENTRIES
Entry #1 - Clear Chambered Burst Disk Golfball Combustion - mark.f - Verified
Entry #2 - Cardboard Box of Death - jakethebeast - Verified, because tape fixes everything.
Entry #3 - The Coke Can Combustion - Crna Legija - Verified
Entry #4 - SmellRod - Labtecpower - Verified
Entry #5 - Biohazard - Technician1002 - Verified
Entry #6 - Muzzle Breaks - al-xg - Verified
Entry #7 - Balloon Pneumatic - clemsonguy1125 - Verified
Entry #8 - Breech Loading Crush Bottle Pneumatic - whoa044 - Verified
Entry #9 - Pump, Glue, and Tape - qwerty - Verified
Entry #10 - WhipperSnapper - Zeus - Verified
Entry #11 - Home Made Blowgun - wyz2285 - Verified
Entry #12 - Wooden Piston Hybrid - Fnord - Verified

Sorry mark, your creation was awesome, but it felt wrong to vote for the creator of the contest.

No problem. In my opinion, there were better choices than mine to vote for.

This is hard to judge.

One thing was definitely surprising, electrical tape seemed used more than duct tape. Unheard of!

agreed.

I'm marginally inclined towards Fnord's design but this is a ghetto contest and he put too much effort into it, even the foot inclusions are exceptional ;)

Well it was hard, but I'm happy with my decision. At least you know I didn't vote for myself.

Wow, a cannon not even verified is running in second place.

I think I like the idea of a second poll for favorite entries. I voted for the most qualifying ghetto entry in my opinion and from the results, several agree.

If we sweet talk Mark maybe a second category of poll for favorite could be started.

The favorite poll seems a little... redundant? One of the factors for judging is your own personal opinion of the entry.

The most "qualifying" entry would vary between voters, otherwise there would be no need for a poll. For instance, I voted for something more than your basic spray n' pray combustion, but still made using scrap/free materials and a fair bit of ingenuity, while others might vote on the basis of construction materials alone.

All suggestions are still welcome.
