Thank to everyone who made "The typing of 315-5571" a rousing success!
The user who typed the most quality entries goes by the username "Monkey." At the moment, we don't require users enter an e-mail address when registering. I thought this would simplify things and encourage people who wished to remain anonymous to add their work. This may be the case, but it also means I don't have a way to contact "Monkey." So Monkey, if you could log in to the site again and send us a message using the "contact" link at the top with a valid e-mail address for yourself, we will get you hooked up with your prize.
We got some great suggestions about how to improve the site. All of them were in regards to the widget you type into - automatic carriage returns, better alignment between the font size and the image size, a mono-spaced font (some platforms must not be working like mine?), a way to see which bits are complete as the user types, and even a cool minesweeper-like widget that lets the user tap on which bits are set have all been noted and added to our list of TODOs.
More die images will be posted shortly, and I will announce them again on the MAMEWorld site. Your old logins will still work, so be sure to remember your password :-).
Some random statistics:
~88 users participated
It took ~15 hours to complete
A quick estimate of how much work was required comes to ~38 hours.
There were only 4 die images where 3 or more people disagreed about the results. This means both that the work is of very high-quality and likely that the die image was very clear. Props to the monkeys and to Caps0ff for the quality stuff!
That's all for now. Look for future posts where we do some more of these.
