Well done sir, never really watched the AMP hour so I would never have come across it. Thanks for the post. I listened to the show too and it was a pretty good one I thought!

I guess Dave and David are still trying to agree who gets it out of the 5 or 6 they shortlisted...

Maybe they should ask R&S for a few more scopes.

If they still arguing I hope it is not turning into a fight :box:
Since they are microphonic :-BROKE and being thrown into dumpsters, it should't be too difficult getting more scopes :-DD

Will we ever know the runners up?
Is there a d-day? Running out of :popcorn:

Yes! They could even send them so Dave doesn't have to. Brilliant idea sir

They could supply some lower end models for runners up... or those that wouldn't really use all the features of the high end model... I think its a good idea, but I'm biased.

If that was an option, I would have entered.

Having the nominated scope on my bench at the moment, would save me a lot of time with a current project - but I would generally not be using its full capabilities.  A lesser model MSO would suit me and while I was sorely tempted, I did not enter in fairness to Dave and whoever could put it to good use.

So only a few people that have entered have continued to post on the forum since? So much for attracting new active members to the forum I guess ;).

That's a fun graph.  I managed to move one bucket to the right during the competition.  I have approximately 4x as many posts as the total of 100 other entrants put together. (And yes I do appreciate post count is not a judging criterion.

According to YouTube stats my video submission has been viewed once from Oz; In two sittings of 59 seconds each! (And I do accept YouTube stats are not sufficiently fine grained to make that definitive).

For reasons that will be obvious from some of my other posts I won't be online much for a while soon.... so GOOD LUCK to all.  8)

Do you have one that shows when we come on to read things? Probably not since you've only got access to public posts... That would be more interesting though.

Sure but those are still only estimates unless there were javascript hooks to monitor mouse movement, even then I guess some people use the web without moving their mouse around as much as I do so an engine that monitored usage activity based on inputs and the like wouldn't be so accurate for those types.

Basically I think the sort of information google adsense would provide to the domain administrator would be interesting but seeing post counts dwindle is not much of a surprise when a serious giveaway is posted.

This forum is taking track of all that. (on side load bases)
If you don't load a side for 1 hour you are counted as not active.

I think I could write a bot to retrieve that data. 
https://www.eevblog.com/forum/profile/?area=statistics;u=141729

But what im doing now is just load one side like:
https://www.eevblog.com/forum/contests/giveaway-rohde-schwarz-rtb2004-oscilloscope/?all

So i would have to load 150 user Profiles .... I think Dave and my Website provider would not like that  :scared:

I got interested ... Here is a graph about new members over the last year.
Actually we don't see anything interesting happening during the 29.6 to 15.7  |O |O |O

So the contest is going down the normal noise of new members ....
Plus the ~100 real new members don't post much in the forum ....

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
