So what your saying is you want 1/1,000 of the overall population to vote, I doubt it :roll:

shidarin wrote:D's readability is seriously lacking. B's is okay, but nothing beats the simplicity of C. People who think those are the only 4 options for the stamp aren't thinking outside the box- the pie chart style easily allows one stage to go before another- and you can figure out where a map is at a GLANCE rather than looking at 2-3 or 4 stamps in a row. 1 stamp shows all the progress- after it's been around for a little bit you won't even need to read the text anymore.


I buy these good arguments regarding the simplicity/concept of C: One glance stage understanding through only 1 stamp
Combined with the elegance from B and the touch of time from D it would be unbeatable....

MrBenn: Can one suggest you cast yet another voting/competition after this, containing the frame/rule of the simplicity/concept from C (one glance stage understanding through only 1 stamp) or stop this voting and let the competitors change their suggestions accordingly?? Or is this only plain stupidity from a not understanding outsider and voter?

I support an epic fusion of all 4 stamps to create the ultimate stamp. ;)

There won;t be another round of voting this time, but I'm sure the stamps will be refreshed again in a couple of months or so ;-)

I don't understand your math. Currently, the scoreboard lists 23,165 active players. That means that a total number of votes of 232 would be 1/100 players voting, a total which has already been surpassed (243 as of this writing).

I would recommend removing the overall elitist feel of the place and I bet users will rush in.

It's not the "elitism" but rather a general, hm, overwhelming feel that currently is associated with the Foundry. I've been working on a few ways to encourage more people to be active...stay tuned.

But anyways, this is not a topic for this topic!

Good luck Foundry Stamp folks!

Well, im not a big fan.. but hopefully which ever is chosen will get some polish before its put into place.
But i voted D. A and B are a bit to busy and C is a little too simple (nice concept tho)

If B does get chosen to, can the circuit board be removed from the XML and replaced with a snippet (what does a circuit board have to do with xml anyways??)

VOTE for D

Maybe I am wrong(hopefully i am), but I think the competition is over :cry:

Congrats B!

Then again, if Benn is willing to, maybe we could have a recount.

Or we could just move all of the votes from option A to option D and make it a tie 8-[

Congratulations again to all the stamp makers who made it to the finals

will we get to know who made what stamps?
