It depends. If you like the phrase "Error establishing a database connection" in 24-point bold Times Roman, then she looks just fine.


Let's just say I'd erroneously connect to her database.

After watching both videos it seems Esther deserves it more. Who gives a shiat if Elizabeth's favorite color is purple. If that's the second reason listed for why she should win, she shouldn't win.

After I clicked vote, it said votes -1. Um, ok.

I watched both videos out of fairness, but frankly Elizabeth's was much more compelling and interesting. Esther's was a little uber-dramatic with the music overlay.
The cut scenes and inserted photos in Elizabeth's worked really well.
Frankly, it is too bad you have to pit them against each other. Let both finalists go.
But, if a winner must be chosen, let the best woman and Farkette win. :)

dmars: The other girl was cuter, I voted for her. It is kind of a shame, I bet she has been watching all day excited with her lead and here comes fark farking things up for her because some random person asked them to vote for some one else


On the other hand, I kind of assume she was in the lead because she's cuter, which is also not in the spirit of the competition.

So neener, or whatever. Not like it matters.

Also, is "Elizabeth" going to at least thank the people that stuffed the ballot box or is she going for discretion until the end of the contest? The latter is probably wise, just wondering tho..

2012-02-07 10:19:12 PM

Hypothetical Imperative: I voted for Esther mostly because the "let's use the power of our community to upend this web contest" thing leaves a bad taste in my mouth and partially because I just liked her better.

So neener, or whatever. Not like it matters.

Also, is "Elizabeth" going to at least thank the people that stuffed the ballot box or is she going for discretion until the end of the contest? The latter is probably wise, just wondering tho..


Now then, not just you but all the other people in the same boat as you. Do you numbnuts really think that Esther didn't do something similar? Post something on Facebook "Hey guys help me win this, and pass it on to people you know!" or post on some other forum she's a member of? I mean come on, with the exception of the Politics tab I always thought of Farkers as a somewhat intelligent bunch.

I don't see any issue with it (not affiliated with these people in any way). This is an online poll and I am sure this is garnering further interest in the project due to the large amount of traffic pointed at it. Either way, http:///www.womenofaviationweek.org/channel/ now has a good chance of making the news for FARK noticing this. If that happens, even more people will be made aware of it. Win win for them. Hell, might even see both go.

Using FARK in this manner is unfair to Esther & Farkette Elizabeth should be ashamed.
And the the rest of you should also be ashamed... but, who am I kidding.

I'm not going to vote for someone just because she's on Fark. And I'm also not going to support female pilots in general - not because women are incapable of being pilots, but because few are interested in being pilots, and it's silly to try to motivate them to become pilots if they're not trying for it themselves already. It just costs far more to staff the same number of positions with qualified women than with qualified men.

Equal opportunity does not mean advertise heavily to try to get women into traditionally male positions, or vice versa. It means give equally qualified applicants an equal chance. This may mean barring all but a tiny percent of women from being pilots, but so what? The object is to have the safest pilots for the least cost.

Hi Fark! I'm Elizabeth from the video. First, I apologize for not commenting sooner- as PaulMKelly posted earlier, I had no idea this made it on here. I found out late last night while I was trying to figure out where all the traffic had come from. Secondly, thank you to all who voted for me. I really appreciate it. It means a lot to me.

The winner of the contest was supposed to be announced today, but due to Fark leaving their poor overloaded servers in shambles, the winner will be announced on Friday. I will post the winner whenever it's announced.

Again, thank you for your support. It's amazing to see what an online community can do.

She appears to be a newspaper editor from Idaho. Idaho is not Florida. While the name Elizabeth is sufficiently unusual that I concede this is unlikely, they might be different people.

Scruffinator: It's all good. Subby outed himself earlier, and his account was created 2002-01-28 16:18:50. A friend of a farker is a friend of fark ^_^


I'll second that.


LizzyDragon84: I'm sorry if folks somehow feel misled, but I did not create the headline nor did I know about it until last night.


Hey, no need to apologize.

In any event, welcome to the site, LizzyDragon84! Here's hoping that we'll see you around the threads or on TotalFark.

Cheers and best of luck to ya with the contest!

I really hope you win this. At a minimum you need to send us pictures!

Absolutely! I plan to take a lot of pictures and video if I'm selected to go. :)

Can you please email me?

Good grief! I hope either you or PaulMKelly will explain that what she's offering and what farkers expect might be worlds apart...poor lass.

I am very confused.

I wanted her to email me - that's all. I had a question for her.

I really don't know why it's your business at all.

How does this concern you?

And who do you think is expecting what?

"the assumption behind the acronym"? It means that my Email is In my Profile. That's how she can reach me. By email. And my email is in my profile.

I can't vote. It's unfair to the other people in the contest. I still hope she wins.

Here's my attempt to show my thought process that led to my post:
I saw a brand new farkette's offer to post pics and vids.
I saw GD ask for an e-mail, with /eip.
I, as per my usual, overthink how this could play out.
So, I then think GD might be offering /eip to explain to the new farkette the possible implications of offering vids and pics, which then led me to wonder if perhaps PaulMKelly would as well, since he is the reasons she's here in the first place. (I was thinking about the notion of them taking a new farkette under their wing and helping them understand the rules of this particular sandbox, not imply that I was assuming they would treat them like fresh meat.)

Sorry for the confusion, and apparent implications I mistakenly made.

I love the profile, just one sentence:

"Just a Farkette who unknowingly got Farked."

I laughed.

The winner is supposed to be announced today, so I am hoping that the mods will keep this thread open until it is announced...

Please...

I do know the result at this point, but I need to wait until the official announcement is made. That should happen in the next 2-3 hours. If the mods keep the thread open until then, I will post the result here.

Okay, so the official result is up. I did not win. However, due to the technical difficulties that occurred and the close results of the final vote (I lost by only 40 votes out of more then 5,200 cast in all), the committee took the unusual step of offering a different runner-up prize then originally offered. They offered to cover to cover the cost of accommodation; the flight across the Channel and a couple of other things if I could get to Europe on my own. Thanks to the stash of CO miles I have, I should be able to get over to the event and enjoy the festivities as well.

So in the long run I might not have won it all, but due to all the support that I got from places like this, it got me close enough. Thanks again for all of your support and for all the votes- it made a difference.

That seems weird... You were solidly ahead when voting closed, I thought... Unless they disqualified some votes... *shrug* Oh well, glad you're both going one way or another, anyway... Have fun!

I'm sorry to hear that you didn't win, but I'm happy that we were here to support you and I also wonder how well you would have done if linking to it hadn't crashed their servers--when this had the most attention from Farkers, almost none of them were able to vote. Still, I hope that you get to enjoy the trip that you may take in lieu of winning.
