Lightbulb The RL Social Media Experiment: 50years.Porsche.com - - - - upload your 997 & vote!

Social media contests are becoming more common, & they take a LOT of votes to win.

Crazy easy idea:
When someone starts a thread about a new on-line contest, we vote for them & spread the word to friends ... then keep the cycle going for the next cool car contest.
This is cross-posted from the Events Forum, where's it's a 'sticky.' Admin/Mods can make each thread a sticky here that they decide applies to 997s, maybe limited to 1 or 2 threads 'til event(s) end.

Should encourage getting word out quickly about new contests others may enjoy.
It's easy fun: you check out car competitions while helping fellow RLers
and probably learn more about other RLers + their rides. Simple!

Specifics below...

Default Porsche's "50 Years of 911 Photo Stream Competition"

Porsche has a new on-line photo contest celebrating 50 years of the 911. To enter just post a photo of your 997, etc.
Quick glance shows the leaders with up to 18,000 votes already

To vote just click on the heart icon: 50years.Porsche.com

I saw (older) 911s from RLers 911Jetta, C4SDave, pStraub, FisterD, DryFly57, uscarrera, Stealth 993, Boman993.
I noticed Freakhead posted his water-cooled 911 - who's uploaded their 997?
Consider voting Boman993 to victory - he's leading the RL pack - in this experiment to see what impact RLers can have.

With 50 years of 911s in mind, my entry features decades of 'em. From the Porsche Club of America's official Heritage/Historic display at the 2012 Parade:



Admin: Contest ends June 14.

Great idea!

Jaws1 has his 997 uploaded too.

Might be easier to vote if people put direct links to their pics.

Mine:

Anyone found other RLers' rides on Porsche.com's photo stream?

Default Last Day; PLEASE VOTE!

On May 27, 2012, the Editor of the world’s largest circulation Porsche magazine commissioned my 911 for a photo feature - shot June 2, 2012.
Yesterday, the new Editor confirmed no plans exist to publish that.


Help make lemonade out of lemons:
Click here to vote “Speedy” into a 3rd place finish or better. The prize: a photo-shoot by the world Porsche headquarters, Porsche AG.

I have RLers to thank for my 911 currently being one of Porsche.com's Top 10 most popular 911s in the world.

Per Porsche's Terms & Conditions, their competition ends today (June 14) at 7 PM.

Update: Cool Canadian RLer Boman993 placed 4th place in the world. AFAIK, that's the highest placement of any RLer, period!


Porsche AG's organizer wrote me, saying, "your Porsche had the best position within the TOP 10 than every other US entrant".
Amazing that RLers voted my Porsche that high, considering the competition: the U.S. has the most Porsches, & is home to the world's largest Porsche club.

RLer drknauf's amazing photography graced the Top 10, with his shot of Andre Florijn's 911.

Big THANKS to everyone who participated, & to Porsche AG for a creative contest.
Best part, IMHO, was seeing all the RLers who posted their beautiful 911s. I think this "RL Social Media Experiment proof of concept" proved we can organize to help each other out

With that in mind ^^ time to show what we can do to aid RJT:

For PCA members who haven't cast their e-ballot yet, click here for more details on how to vote her 997 - photographed by RLer kShipp - to be PCA's Porsche of the Month!

They shut down this runway so we could do the shoot.

Enjoy JoAnne's thread about the photo-shoot: "What a fun afternoon (997 pics)."

Thanks for the tip from RLer dedes, who says you can vote more than once.
