Do you have access to the number of deleted/banned accounts? I wonder how many of them are spambots that are blocked in short order.

Based on the number of threads/posts posted per day, a 100 new members per day seems high to me. I wonder if 90% is bots drowning out the signal from real people.

Im sorry to tell but this giveaway head nearly 0 impact on the forum  ... I hope Dave is not going to leren from that conclusion  :scared:

Do I overlook something?  |O
Only 150 people entered but that doesn't mean that the 32K or so views of the YT video didn't result in people becoming more aware of the forum and viewing as Guest or registering but not entering the competition itself.

I also think it is possible that people created a new forum id specifically for the competition, I wish I had thought of that!  :)

Were these promoted on YouTube?  If not you are comparing Wallabies to Panadas.

There were a LOT of entries.  Far more than anticipated, I believe.  I can't imagine Dave doing a half-assed job of the judging - so it will take some time.

Remember, he will still have other work that must be done - some of which will not be able to be put off.


The announcement will come.

Based on the votes it isn't looking good for me... lowest vote count currently is for people that try to educate by video blogging... damnit.

Its over  :phew: finally I can sleep again  :=\  :-+

Congratulations Matt  :-+ I think you can really use this scope to its fullest ;-)   :box:

Would be nice to see the short list.. just to see who made the list
Yes this would be nice ;-)

I think it was close for me too at least I got stalked alot in the last hours:

Youtube_Views" border="0

Most views I got from Australia sofar ;-)  :-+

I'm also a a little bit (very) disappointed ... Dave you played against your own roles  :--

Will you take the text in the post also into account?
2 minutes is really sort to talk about alle the usecases, especially like my video.

That's part of the challenge.

Got it!

I updated my entry video  8)
http://www.eevblog.com/forum/contests/giveaway-rohde-schwarz-rtb2004-oscilloscope/msg1251074/#msg1251074

I spent 10 hours to make my video ... and then again 2 hours to add more information and speed up parts (what actually made my video harder to watch :palm:)
And now you told that his video was actually not the best and he only won because of his homepage ....
I actually also planning to start a blog ... but my study has 100% priority right now  :(
And as you see in my other videos I also do a lot with FPGAs and mixed signals ... just don't have the time and money to do that more and I'm actually not an electrical engineer |O |O |O |O
And soon also not much more time done to my soon bigger family  8)

I know it was very hard to decide and I respect that. You cannot make it right for everyone :palm:

I will also shutdown the page monitoring soon: (i think eevblog is running good again)
http://rsgiveaway.knoebel.at/

Tanks again. And I'm looking forward to watch more videos soon  :-+

That would be a bad move, it would only lead to endless complaining at best.
I once made the mistake to try and explain to someone who entered the Hack-A-Day contest that I judged why perhaps they maybe didn't win (because they won the "popular vote" based on viewer responses, so they were gobsmacked at not winning), honesty did not go down well.
Will never make that mistake again.

"Someone who doesn't have a scope clearly isn't serious about electronics,"

When I was at Uni I worked in TV repair shops between courses to get some money. For beer, of course. You need beer at Uni.  :popcorn:

Most of the places didn't have a scope, and of those that did have one, it was so crappy as to be next to useless. The jobs still got done though. In some cases when you don't have the right tool for the job you have to be creative in the way you use other tools. The guys in those places taught me a few faultfinding tricks that you never get taught in college. Some are still just as applicable today.

OK, so I've just proved that I don't need the RTB2004. Oops.

I am kind of glad that I didn't win because I could not have used the scope to its full capabilities. Also, two days ago, I scored a Tektronix 2230 for $100 on eBay that does everything I needed. Thanks for the opportunity anyways.  ;D

BTW, for those who worried about it not going to a forum contributor, Matt has 200 posts  :-+
(we didn't take that into account though BTW, and I didn't remember Matt's name from the forum)
