Sweeva Surf Party (i) – Quick Question For You All

Sweeva Surf Party (i) – Quick Question For You All

Sweeva Surf Party

So last night’s Sweeva Surf Party was not without controversy.

Early oh in proceedings Jon took the – seemingly innocuous – decision to group the splash pages by the individual Legacy members together.

This led to other attendees crying foul, appealing to the referee, pointing to the penalty spot and saying this was all rather unfair.

There certainly was no intention of giving any one individual or group an advantage over others…but it might have worked out that way.

So the question is how we should proceed in future and I want your thoughts.

Therefore if you leave a comment saying whether you think Legacy pages should all be lumped together or treated as separate, then I would be most grateful.

P.S. There were prizes awarded at yesterday’s show…all will be revealed on the next post.

  1. Legacy is a group of owners, that works as one.
    My opinion they should count as one.

  2. Stephen Whittle says:

    Brainstorming here….Perhaps you should break up the competition into a “group” contest and an “individual” contest?

  3. Sunny Suggs says:

    I think…


    that is all.

  4. Sunny Suggs says:

    Okay, I’ve come up with a formula that might help.


    P – number of pages seen from all Legacy guys
    x – Number of times Janelle screams “I love the Backstreet Boys” during the spreecast.
    N – Number of red skittles per 1 lb bag.

    if a is less than the # of times my sites show, I win.
    if a is greater than the # of times my sites show, they lose.

    Fair? I think so.

  5. OK, I wasn’t there, so why was the Legacy Team in particular picked on?

    Was it because Ken, Marcus and Rodney were EACH displaying LT ads, in addition to other individuals?

    Or were you grouping together the SAME ads that were being displayed? That actually makes sense…the same splash page shouldn’t be counted more than once (there’s the incentive for folks to CREATE something different).

    A little clarity as to why Jon did this, and NOT apply the same to the other members, would go a long way in coming up with a fair and reasonable solution. πŸ˜‰

    Wasn’t there last night but every individual splash should be counted I think.
    @Sunny you are a funny lady ma’am : D

  7. Count as one !! …as team-splashes do .

  8. Lynn M says:

    The only way it could possibly be fair to everyone else participating is if they were counted separately, or if only one of them showed pages during the SSP (or if they showed as one Legacy entity like the “TimTech” account does).

    The majority of the rest of the participants were either individuals or individual owners. The only way anyone else would have had a chance at winning is if they all had partners that were also participating in bidding and showing pages. Look at Robert Arnold, who was in the top 3 – Robert could have easily probably won if he had a TERL partner that was also showing and they were being counted as one.

    It’s not a huge big deal but I think the only way it’s fair to everyone else participating is if they are counted separately or only one of them shows as “Legacy”.

  9. Bob Pizor says:

    I understand that is all in friendly competition, but to have three people get lumped together as one definitely gives them an unfair advantage. The competition is made up of individual marketers or TE owners. My vote is to count them each individually. If it was a competition for which program was showed the most, it would be different.


    It’s been a long time since I’ve met someone who can do algebra with boy bands, skittles, and an eastern Canadian LMAO


  11. If it is a competition then there are a couple of approaches.

    If individuals are being counted for their marketing then all individuals should be taken into account,
    If its about which programs get advertised the most then group efforts can be taken into account.

  12. Sig says:

    ..well atleast the Formula from Sunny..makes ..no sense…lol πŸ™‚

  13. Karen Kuty says:

    Since each of the owners has a separate Sweeva account, then they should be counted separately (and the totals are separate). If the ads are all from one common “Legacy” account on Sweeva, then they count as a group.
    This way you have a common basis of measurement, since each entity can only have one account. So, if one entity has 5 owners, then you could see a splash 5 times, but there would be 5 different totals, one for each advertiser.

  14. steven schofield says:

    Counts as one ,one splash page one count.

  15. Simple, every team that advertises is a winner so every tem should get points

  16. Since there are actual prizes to be won, it makes a difference now.

    At one point it was just for the screaming and the glory.

    Define the competition categories ahead of time . Even HS football does this with large school/small school categories.

    Then assign prizes based on the winners within the category.

    By all means, use Sunny’s brilliant equation to help in the differentiation!

  17. Randy Sult says:

    What matters is that my ad was shown last. How ya like them apples?

  18. Raj G says:

    It would be better if every splash page is considered separately.

  19. Sorry I did not make it. I bet it was fun,

  20. Marye says:

    Should count by individual pages – that should make it fair
