It's not because I lay in the couch that I don't work. ;)

I'd like to learn which are the favorites of some of the forum members--not including their own entries. . .

I've got limited bandwidth here, as well as time, so downloading all 92 is not feasible. But I would like to listen to a few more of the forum's favorites. Any nominations?

Might also be interesting to see if there would be a consensus or a divergence between the users' and the admins' picks.

I also agree that this was one of the better of Dragon contests, and the least self-serving .

Also, I got to discover a new and useful site!

I hope that the people who signed up *just* for the competition are impressed by the solid community here enough to stay. That was the point of neowin's angle on the competition after all... surely? Some forums would have just done it for "active" members but neowin was good enough to let everyone do it :)

Damnit. I was waiting on a certain piece of sound equipment "touch up" my entry. Oh well.

I wonder who the winner is. All of the entries were a treat to listen to. (Y)

Yes, most of the sites have made it open to everyone, although a few have effectively made it that you have to be an active member to be in with a chance. One I found required you to be a member before the event was announced, which means I spent 1 minute on the site and closed it. This and other sites have had an interesting entry method and the site could well be helpful in the future, sites I'm likely to bookmark and hang around on.

Are there any staff left to vote or is the announcement simply being delayed for suspense?

I think the biggest reason for the delay is the time needed for the remix. With roughly 92 entries, each being a minute long, that's an hour and a half of audio to snip into probably a five to ten minute mix.

Ah, well, that definitely makes it much easier to mix, but still, it's not like it takes a few minutes to whip together, especially if timing and flow are important :)

well all they will do is put all 5 clips right after each other, shouldn't take more than 5 mins

This is true unless there's an actual "remix" in the making.

PS warwagon: who is that in your sig? I've been trying to figure it out for months. :p

They won't remix it other than putting the top 5 one after another. If they remix it any other way they will un do the original work the posters.

I think they'll like take the most funniest parts from each "top 5"

and then mix it into one file, where everyone randomally comes in different order saying random funny things one after another.
