Article: And The Winner of the August Monthly Developer Contest Is –
Just a quick look revealed this (I did not check all the likes either)
This is for Bitbubba's Newbie Friendly Ware - 3.55 NFW
Submitting multiple versions of the SAME project is just wrong, you should have counted unique likes per project.
2 votes: 00fernf, douha, marribaloch = 3 unfair
3 votes: zzk2001, Tranced = 4 unfair
4 votes: Mack702, blacklisted, heapy83, williak7, damanptyltd, TitanTX, ALBERTSR = 21 unfair
So that's 28 extra votes given for the SAME project!
Meaning the ACTUAL total for Bitbubba's is ONLY 48 likes!!!
MFW 0.2, check boxes, click BUILD. win yourself win $250.
wow just wow, how can someone who release a fw made with a one click tool win this shit? he didnt develop a shit, its like if i would repack some ps3 themes into a rar and take all the credit for it and win.
This was identified earlier this month, and will be corrected next month.

I did not see anyone else release a cinavia disabled CFW (atleast until bitsbubba release the 3.41 AND 3.55 cinavia files), and rebug only released there patch package because of the work that bitsbubba had brought forth. Nor have I seen such a great CFW for cobra USB. Nor have I seen so many people getting interested in CFW and MFW.
I know I can not go in and duplicate what he created, without a lot of trials and error, plus a lot of learning too.
We have addressed the problem of having multiple homebrew releases, and have told everyone it will be different for this month's contest.
He followed the rules that WE initially gave, and he won. We are not going to change the rules mid contest, so everyone will have to wait, that is just the way it is.
I suppose some would rather we did not follow the rules set for the contestants. We apologize for not setting up this FIRST contest correctly, but we feel we have worked out all the bugs, and next month should be fair for everyone.
Sorry guys but this award is a joke. Clicking a button should not put you in the same league as some of the true developers. I feel like I'm in a bizaro world where mediocrity is rewarded. Oh wait thats the real world!! LoL Its this sort of garbage that has made so many of us Devs just walk away or only do work for ourselves and close friends
Seriously, what happened to people being happy for others? Bitsbubba, congratulations and thanks for your created firmware for the Cobra USB.
Thank you bitsbubba for your support to the 'scene'. And, congratulations on winning fair and square by following the rules that were set for LAST MONTH'S contest. As a reminder to everyone, the contest rules have been changed for this current month, and it will be most likes per release, not most like for all releases.
