www.bigwindowchallenge.com. With every contest we hold we get some outrageous enthusiasm, and we had an overload of it last Thursday in the windows at Bloomingdale's and then afterwards at the bumpin' party on the fifth floor (all pics above). Then over the weekend we found that a few folks had figured out a loophole in our voting system and were voting hundreds of times each!....
Fortunately, we were able to close the loophole this afternoon and track down the ISP's where the enthusiastic vote stuffing was occurring. Unfortunately, we had to subtract those votes from the three remarkable designers and it completely shifted the standings - for today. Unbeknownst to them, they had a few fans who were very good with their computers and gamed our system. Design addicts know no boundaries sometimes.
The race, however, is back to being very close again and we urge you to make sure to vote - if you haven't already - and feel free to get all your friends to vote, because we still have four days to go.
