If you have an informative and/or fun TWiki related video to share please post it on YouTube, tag it with "twiki" and "twikitv", and list it on this page, following the format of existing entries.

The video production is great and you can't fault the vocal delivery of Peter and Kate. But they seem to have ignored the contest guidance so I'm afraid that neither Ms. Bush nor Mr. Gabriel will be getting a free t-shirt. And Kate, sending me your latest CD as a bribe isn't going to work either. I already have it in my collection.

Don't give up ... - Great motto for our favorite project! Thanks Michael.

-- FranzJosefGigler - 18 Feb 2008

I am very curious to see, which videos might appear.

-- MartinSeibert - 18 Feb 2008

Hm ... no videos out there, huh? frown

-- MartinSeibert - 10 Mar 2008

Hello, just saw the one minute minimum of the contest guidelines. I guess that means no donut for me, but at least I hope you guys will like the entry.

-- DannyPalic - 13 Apr 2008

cool! Very very cool, three submissions! Thank you!

Danny: Let me discuss at work about the one minute time limit.

If anyone is working on a video and might miss the deadline, I think nobody would object if you post the video one or two days later.

-- PeterThoeny - 14 Apr 2008

No objection!

-- MarkRobins - 14 Apr 2008

I would like to submit a video but I will miss the deadline for sure. I'm hoping for wednesday...

-- CarloSchulz - 14 Apr 2008

Carlo at al: We extended the deadline by one more week to give you time. 21 Apr 2008 is the final date. I am looking forward to seeing more submissions! Have fun filming!

Danny: I discussed this at work. Sorry, the limit is one minute as stated in the contest rules. The extended deadline gives you time to create and submit another one wink

-- PeterThoeny - 14 Apr 2008

Since we have another week smile I'll be making some changes to my initial entry, so I'm temporarily taking mine off this page

-- TerryBochaton - 14 Apr 2008

Terry, I think it is better to keep the current version on this page for other folks as an inspiration. I restored the video, please replace with updated version once you have it.

-- PeterThoeny - 15 Apr 2008

Peter: Very well, I will see what I can do! Thank you for discussing this. I cannot promise anything, but I will try.

-- DannyPalic - 15 Apr 2008

I will definetly upload a video today. I have just some technical difficulties to solve smile

-- CarloSchulz - 21 Apr 2008

Thanks Joyce for submitting the TWiki pirates!

Carlo, please submit, deadline is today US Pacific Time, that gives you some slack!

-- PeterThoeny - 21 Apr 2008

The video is ready. just waiting for youtube

-- CarloSchulz - 21 Apr 2008

So, I hope I've done everything correct. Unfortunately the video quality is not the best... but hey this is my first video ever smile

-- CarloSchulz - 21 Apr 2008

I added the GenericVote application at the top. Voting is open for one week. Go for it!

-- PeterThoeny - 22 Apr 2008

I voted for C as I am convinced, that it will help the TWiki-Community a lot.

-- MartinSeibert - 26 Apr 2008

Carlo - Which tool did you use to make the screencast? I like the mouse pointer yellow ring as well as the cool way it zooms in and out.

-- KennethLavrsen - 26 Apr 2008

The software is called camtasia, normally used to capture usabilty-test. There's a 30 days trial version offered on the http://techsmith.com website.

-- CarloSchulz - 26 Apr 2008

Hmm, I think there was one point missing in the criterias for voting. Are video contributors allowed to vote for their own video?

I did not vote for my video as I thought if I would do it everyone else would do that as well and we all end up with +1 votes but still no differentiation. So this makes actually no sense. Maybe this should be considered in case there's a similar event in the future. Anyway, in this case It doesn't matter at all as the ranking would stay as it is and it is not that important smile

-- CarloSchulz - 29 Apr 2008

Good point Carlo. For next time we can do what the community thinks is right. I would not mind if a member is voting his/her own video.

-- PeterThoeny - 29 Apr 2008

I drew up the rules of this contest (in conjunction with TWikiDotNet) and failing to mention whether people could vote for themselves was an oversight on my part.

In the UK, whenever there is an election, the day always starts with cameramen following the politicians to the polling booths where they vote for themselves. If would say, if it is good enough for politicians then it is good enough for us.

But, as Carlo says, I don't think that this would have caused any difference to the overall ranking of the videos.

-- MichaelCorbett - 30 Apr 2008

TWIKI.NET will announce the winners shortly, stay tuned!

-- PeterThoeny - 01 May 2008

The results are out, see above. Thanks again all who participated, either producing a video, help produce one or vote on a video! The contest is over, it does not mean no new videos. In contrast, please take the existing videos as an inspiration to produce your own video! We'd love to see videos that explain how you are using TWiki at work, what problems it solved, how you implemented it, and what fun you have using it!

-- PeterThoeny - 05 May 2008

Congratulations to the winners. Oh, btw The TWiki Pirates are done using playmobil, not lego wink
