Hi dear community!
Sorry for the slight delay in announcing the winners, I coded a dedicated program to fairly raffle our winners!
Please, all winners contact me ( @iKirin ) via PM & let me know your shipping address!
If I don’t recieve a PM within 72 hours, we will give another person the chance to test a prototype!
(The interesting part is done now, the rest is just some background information since we want to give you a fair info of how these results came to be)
And now, let’s get a bit more into the numbers - because you might wonder how some things affected the results! And why we even wanted you to give statements what you do!
After deciding the categories, locking down the poll (and filtering out doubles which took quite a while) we looked at the amount of prototypes we could send out (20 in 2 waves) and realized we can send 24 to you - 3 less than we wanted since we wanted to send a prototype to 3 persons that crossed off a specific category (like eGPU).
Since we wanted to be fair we rolled the dice which categories got fewer people - in the end the categories where we only took 2 people were: eGPU, 3D work and video editing.
Fast forward 2 hours and a program was written in Java that randomly chooses people out of each category. As I wanted to have a “substitute” that can hop in in a category if someone does not reply within 72 hours, I raffled one extra person in each category.
Well, this turned out to be a very good idea as from the 24 raffled people 8 (!) did not put in a “community username” or email that was connected to an account to the community!
After raffling some more people in the categories that were lacking (namely video editing & people that want to test Linux) & checking that there were not doubles in each category (there actually was in the Linux category - @Wallace_Bertholdi_de the luck was on your side! ) I wrote up this post with the results!
So, congratulations dear winners!
I’ll follow up with further informations soon™!
