    I don't know what's going on, but I just looked and it said WPI is number 2 in its region.

    Hey Ya'll:

    I appreciate everyone that is validating this information.

    IMHO, as a previous Technical Project Manger, I am wondering if they just didn't validate the code for posting results. I think we need to be diligent in following the results, but, I agree, stay calm until final results are posted.

    They may have allowed for computer errors prior to posting final results, thus stating that results won't be posted until Sept 6th. (time to fix any calculations or posting errors)

    Peace.
    Karen

    They just posted the winners all mixed up. If you look at the total votes in. WPI comes in first by a landslide.

    What is this about?: presentation of the six winners: September 6, 2011 @ 2:00pm MST

    Was there 6 regions only?

    GG

    PS That's basically all I was getting from the links. FYI

    It seems they have found out that these links show the numbers and have now disabled them. I think there were 5 regions plus the overall winner. I agree with "landslide" Nielk.

    Hi GG - there were five regions, each with a winner. Also, the runner up charity in the region with the overall winner also gets $100k. So five charities get $100k and the overal top charity gets $250k.

    it was 2 pm mountain daylight time 1 hour and 40 minutes ago (other than Nevada, most of Mountain Time observes daylight savings time; Mountain time is two hours earlier than Eastern time)

    I missed it, too, because I didn't start playing until Doogle posted, and I had some commercial through most of it (I couldn't find a "skip commercial" button). I thought there might be a replay when everything was finished, but there doesn't seem to be. :( Hopefully it will show up on youtube or WPI's site.

    Has anyone been keeping track of we've all helped raise for WPI so far this year?

    There was Chase $65,000, Vivint $100,000 plus an additional approximate $25,000 in the matching donations. Along with the 'Count Me In' on FB, that should be over $200,000 so far this year, shouldn't it? Am I forgetting any other?

    Amazing job everybody!
