TrackManiac of the Month – Results

Last week you guys were asked to vote for who should be the very first TrackManiac of the Month. VotingΒ is now over and the results are here πŸ˜€

Based on the comments made about this months TrackManiac of the Month events, many wanted MrA to win, based on the fact that he was the only one nominated who is doing a lot of work behind the scene (for those who don’t know, MrA is part of the crew at TMX). Now the question is if MrA did run away with the victory, or if any of the other contestants beat him.

I’m not going to hold you any longer. The winner of the very first TrackManiac of the Month is:

Heidi!

I’m quite sure some find this surprising, but Heidi actually got quite a large part of the public votes. Let’s check out some numbers. The following is the percentage of votes all six participants received:

  1. Heidi – 45%
  2. MrA – 25%
  3. JumperJack – 13%
  4. Smok3y – 8%
  5. Andree – 7%
  6. Maupi – 2%

There were some complaints about the reasons for Heidi’s nomination (the fact that she’s female was the main reason for her nomination), but I’d like to highlight that that was not my intention. I know Heidi does a lot for the TM community. But we’re not going to talk about that here and now. As most of you know, the prize for winning this contest is a day in the spotlight here at the TMU Blog.

In other words: Next week you’ll get a post dedicated to Heidi, where everything you could possibly want to know about her will be brought up. In that post you’ll hopefully get to know Heidi a bit better, and Heidi herself will get some free advertising πŸ˜‰

So congratulations to Heidi, and keep an eye out next weekend for her prize post πŸ˜€

    and what about the nr2?! i personally voted for mra, and will he get a assured place in the next round, or not, since i would like to see a dedicated post about him too sometimes… πŸ˜‰

    I’ve learned from all this, and for next month nominations are done behind the scenes among the minds behind the community (suggestions are still welcome – jozii@pp.inet.fi – but really good reasons are required)! I don’t think Heidi was a bad choice, but I also agree that people like MrA might be the ones who really deserve this title.

    As a result of this, 2nd to 4th place are NOT automatically re-nominated as previously said, except fro MrA, who still qualifies for this title πŸ˜‰

    Congratz Heidi πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

    all a team voted, this show it’s important πŸ˜›

    sad for maupi, I love his skins….

  12. MrA says:

    If its possible, I think you should pick people based on their contribution to the TM world being higher during the monthly period than the people around them, otherwise its more of a life time achievement award… and those people mostly have recognition already in other forms.

    I’m not sure how you decide that though, but I suppose there are lots of things someone might do to be considered. As for me, I’m just the person whose job it became to manage TMX, so I’ve really done nothing more this month than is my normal job.

  13. Andree says:

    And how many would still play TM if MrA didnt do his normal job

    MrA is one of the nicest and best people on the TM planet.
    Without TMX and MrA i wouldnt have played TM

  14. Jozii says:

    I agree with what Andree said. And I blieve those who should earn this title are exatly those who do great stuff as their normal job. The goal with the TrackManiac of the Month is not to bring attention to those less known, but to provide a nice contest and good reading material for readers (the “In the Spotlight” posts are among the most popular at the blog, and many have requested more of that kind). And who would you like to read about more than the most famous people, the ones whose name you’ve hear but you don’t know in person?

    JumperJack suggested the guy currently the best driver in-game (I’ve forgotten his name), and I guess that could be a monthly achievement, not an everyday job.

    Plus, as you said, deciding who have been the most “unusually active” people during any given month would be hard…

  15. Heidi says:

    Tnx a lot all!
    I hope someone who deserve more this title wins next month.
    But it was fun that u let me win this time.

    Hope u will read my winnerpost πŸ™‚
    I do more than u know πŸ™‚
