So, I am ready with the results. It took somewhat longer than I had expected because I do all this work manually since I don’t want to use plugin for everything. It slows down the website and negates user experience.
Yesterday’s competition was real tough with Suprabhat Mondal notching the highest comment count, Ravi Chahar raising the bar by exceptional commenting and sharing on social media and Krishnan and Rajaraman and a couple of other contestants making it a tough competition.
These are stats of Day 2 at 11:59 PM exactly:
Let’s start by calculating the final points of the top two contestants.
- Ravi Chahar : Ravi made a total of 44 comments yesterday. Out of these 44 comments, I have approved 37 as rest 7 were generic comments. He tweeted 42 posts on Twitter and shared 9 posts on Google+. So his total points come out to be:
Points From Day 1 = 180
Comments Points From Day 2 = 37*2= 74
Sharing Points From Day 2= 51
Total = 180+74+51 = 305 Points
- Suprabhat Mondal : Suprabhat did an excellent job by leaving 91 comments on Day 2. I am really stunned to see the efforts of Suprabhat. He is new but he is fast. Out of these 91 comments, I have approved 75 comments as the rest were too generic. He shared 28 posts on Google+ and tweeted 9 posts on Twitter. So his total points come out to be:
Points From Day 1 = 110 Points
Comment Points From Day 2 = 75*2= 150 Points
Sharing Points From Day 2 = 37 Points
Total = 110+150+37 = 297 Points
So, Ravi Chahar with 305 points is the winner of Day 2’s Bonus Prize Contest. I think the lead from Day 1 helped him get here and the rest was his hard work on day 2.
Note : The approval of comments is totally my discretion and my decision will be final in this regard. This is necessary to keep up the spirit of the contest.
