Record Breaking Early Sweeva Surf Party Was A Blast

We held the Sweeva Surf Party at the “wrong” time yesterday and on the “wrong” day and, despite this, we still set records.

We, well you guys actually, set a new Sweeva Surf Party record for the most number of individuals getting their pages seen during the hour-long event.

We had 38 different people all getting their pages seen and that is totally awesome. There were actually so many of you that both Jon and I ran out of space on our our “official ledgers of record-keeping” and would have been forced to write on our hands if any more people came along.

Interestingly there were a lot of pages from CTP Team members where the members were advertising things other than their teams.

There is nothing wrong with that – people can advertise whatever they like, but it did get me thinking.

I think it would be fair to count a page for the CTP Teams contest if it:

  • was a page specifically advertising or promoting the Team in question.
  • was a page advertising or promoting any product or service but also had the logo of the advertiser’s team clearly visible on it.

For example not all of Matt’s pages were promoting his team this week – nothing wrong with that at all. However if the non-team pages contained the SurfAholics Alpha logo and said something like “Matt is a proud members of SurfAholics Alpha” then I would have no problem putting a checkmark against that page in the teams contest.

This could even lead to the possibility of CTP Teams sponsoring pages. “This page was brought to you by SurfAholics Alpha or The Strays or Lucky 13 etc” Now that is an interesting possibility?

So who won what this week?

Team contest:

  1. Lucky 13 – 21 pages – 50k xp
  2. (=2 ) Surfaholics Alpha – 15 pages – 25k XP
  3. (=2) CSN – 15 pages – 25k XP
  4. Surf To Earn – 4 pages – 10k XP

Individual contest:

  1. Boris – 12 pages – 50k XP
  2. Matt Badura – 11 pages – 25k XP
  3. Walter Mulder – 9 pages – 10k XP
  4. (=3) William Miller – 9 pages – 10k XP

Well done everyone and thanks for all who took part as you helped to make this week’s Sweeva Surf Party another huge success.

  11. I have to admit, I’ve been a bit confused on why people at the Sweeva surf party would want to be advertising their teams when in all likelihood (maybe Patrick could send the kittens out to confirm my suspicions) everyone taking part in the Spreecast part of the surf is already on a Team. I don’t know how many of them would be looking to change teams or be influenced by a team splash page.

    • Patrick Griffin says:

      I think it is probably more subtle than that. By advertising a team and showing how creative the members are it is firstly establishing the team as one to be reckoned with, so to speak. Also people DO change teams and when looking for one to move to it is not unreasonable to think that what happens at the SSP may have some effect.

      However I think it is also just about being part of a community and using this hour to be part of the community while saying “Look at us. Look what we can do.”

    Congratulations to the winners! And I agree with Marian. Advertising a CTP team during a Sweeva surf party is a little like advertising for Sweeva on Sweeva.

    Congrats to all participants..!


  14. The only way I could compete with some of these pages is if I go back to college and get an art degree.
    Well done everyone

      …or do what a lot of people without design skills do…outsource the design part of the process to those with the skills in this area.

      Rhonda is someone who instantly springs to mind and Valentin is rapidly making a name for himself in splash page design too.

      Those are just two names from the top of my head.

  15. Wendy Browning says:

    Great job to all
