The contestThe "SAP Facts Chuck Norris style" contest which was announced in the blog Humor@SAP Contest: Are you ready? has now come to an end.
The task was to write the most funny SAP fact in the same form as Chuck Norris facts . After an approval process, the facts were open for voting on http://sapfacts.elsewhat.com, so it's the SDN community which has been the judge (and excecutor). There has been a lot of activity and in total 2855 votes and over 19 000 pageviews(alright it was 19 002; over 19 000 sounds much more impressive). That means that there has been 1 vote pr 175 SDN member or 0.00571 vote pr SDN member.
Who won? That's what I am going to tell you if you stop asking questions.
The Winners are (*drum roll*)
There is no third place. How could that be?
The second place is actually shared between two facts (damn, now I have to write code that handles that also)
Second place nr 1(125 points):"SAP Stands for Shai Agassi Products"
by Eddy De Clercq
Second place nr 2(125 points):"Chuck Norris uses SAP to keep track of his death count"
by Dagfinn Parnas (I rigged the vote.. muhahahah)
And the grand prize(200 points) goes to
Congratulations Ibai, your fact was in a league of its own and won a deserved victory. Please note that you are now an official SDN celebrity, Craig will give you a talk on how this affects your life. Unfortunately, I haven't got your email, but I'll try to get in contact via the SDN team.
All winner will be paid be fully paid in SDN points.
Honourable mentionsThis is the final top 40 of facts. A big cheer for them all. Unfortunately, there are a lot of good facts that didn't make this list because they didn't have the required 20 votes that was needed in order to insure voting was fair. You can check those out at the new list.
FutureThe SAP fact site will be closed for voting for a couple of weeks now, so that everyone can admire the results and bask in the glory of the winners. Afterwards, it will be open again for anyone to submit new facts as well as vote for facts.
PS: I'll make sure everyone gets there rightly deserved points from the SDN group.
