Huge apologies, everyone: The ‘Snark Sucks!
Our fun little quizzes were run by software that did not offer robust reporting, and as a result, our final tallies were totally messed up when we reported the winners earlier this week. That’s ‘cuz they had to be done by hand. In, like, Excel. With us copying and pasting and figuring out which person was which when some people were a little cryptic in how they identified themselves.
Here’s how the final results of the six quizzes SHOULD have been reported!
1st PLACE – IT ACTUALLY IS A TIE!!
13 out of a possible 19 points
Congrats to you both!!
2nd PLACE – AS ORIGINALLY REPORTED
Congrats to you, too! (again)
3rd PLACE – IN ACTUALITY IT WAS A FOUR-WAY TIE!! WOO-HOO!
Most of you had wrongly been categorized as “runners up” – well you’ve been hereby promoted to the official winner’s circle!
Of course, the ‘Snark thinks you’re ALL winners!!!
And for all of you who are now doubting our abilities to handle simple math: These results do include the adjustments that we promised based on the faulty design of quiz #6.
Guess we clobbered things six ways from Sunday on this one, huh?
As for these results, well… Those are some pretty significant differences! This is the ‘Snark wearing an embarrassed face.
How we managed to flub the original reporting so completely is a mystery to everyone. (It was done on a Saturday night. We blame beer. 🙂 )
Apologies to all and thanks especially to BSer altralazer who called us out on it (and deservedly so!).
Winners, your blahg membership accounts should be adjusted in the next 24 hours to reflect your prizes. (Or 17 hours. Or 33. Depending on who’s doing the counting.)
