Number of Motivated Participants

Postby EdwardTonai » Sat Feb 27, 2010 2:15 am

Hi,

Any chance we can get a sense of how many of the participants *tried*?

I'm interested in knowing how many of the 700+ modified entries (after removing the starter pack entries) were from motived participants.

I don't know how to determine what makes a person motivated, but people near the bottom with only one submission were probably not motivated.

It's nice to say I placed X out of 700, but many of the 700 didn't care anywhere near as much as I did. Maybe someone can give us stats on how many people had more than 5 submissions, or how many people had submissions in the final week, or something like that.

Ideas?

Thanks,
Ed

Wow, that's a lot more motivated participants than I expected : )

Thanks for running such an awesome programming contest!

It was a very fun problem and the game reviewer thing was excellent : )

Interesting numbers, 668 seems to correspond to the number of active participants (the number on preliminary leader board), maybe next time it could reach 4 digits :)
