well,
spoilers are already active
average donation of $547


Wouldn't that have a reverse affect rather than spoiling? I don't like that people would do that, but wouldn't that just end up encouraging Huckabee supporters? Can RP people and others be that dumb to actually help our fund raising in that way?

if the number inflates and we dont hit it, then you can imagine what they woudl say.

also, if we hit 1mm tomorrow, then why keep giving? ..

2 reasons to watch for spammers.


also,
another reason why we need a sitemeter on that page

Well, I've read their threads on Dec27th . . . A few people said to pledge falsely, but most people said it was a bad idea because (1) it would look bad for Ron Paul, (2) it would encourage more Huckabee supporters to participate (i.e. "this is working!") . . .

If they do ruin it, we can go public with it. Make sure you take screenshots of everything. Copying and pasting won't cut it.

I noticed the same thing. Read the few threads they have about it here:

Does anyone know why the http://www.dec27th.com/ counter has stopped and actually reversed the number of donations? It hasn't moved for a while.

I notice that the pledge amount and number of pledges went way down on this site. Did we find a way to weed out the fake pledges or whats the story?

Yeah, the Ron Paul people pledged about $180,000... :P

We're screening things now.

I thought I already posted this but it didn't take...I guess I am having issues as well....

The Sitemeter is up and active on Dec27th, but it is available for all people to view. I imagine that we don't want this, correct? Is there a way to force a login to view that info?

Fair enough, as long as you know about it. I thought that was just generally for backend knowledge. Cool though.

Guys, I know that you know this, but if we want this effort to be a success we have got to put all of our energy into it. Are all of the Meetup Groups pledging? Are all of the Facebook groups hearing about it? MySpace? Are you including a link in all your comments on the official site and on news articles?

That's the kind of effort that will make this a success. Remember, the campaign will send out an email IF we can get to 1,000 pledges -- the amount itself isn't as important. So SPREAD THE WORD! :D

What do you think of getting this on the site? A supporter made it. Rett Hatcher.

Truly a wonderful ad. Really really well done in my opinion. However, I think the last picture has got to be changed. Huckabee looks weird in it and there are so many other ones that can be used.

Maybe something like this one:

Ditto Shawn. It's a great video, and in other formats that final pic is a good one...it just doesn't fit the theme of the video. Stick a different pic there and I say go for it.

To Alex and Brett,
I see that a "message to Ron Paul supporters" was put on the dec27th site. It's well written and makes a good point, and even though I go back and forth on having it displayed there, I would feel more comfortable if the Nazi reference was removed. I criticize RP supporters all the time for calling US Nazis, I don't really want to return the favor. It just gives them ammo. The point of the message is dead on, but would probably be even more effective without that reference.
My $.02.

Good job Brett and Alex. I just put "Huckabee" into google under the news section and this was one of the latest results that came up:

This is good. Hopefully we can wake our supporter up to the fact that this is really serious. Can we get ThaddeusB to join the team as far as promotion? If he could just send an email out for us to all his pledgers from Nov20th that would be great.

P.S. I'm going to wait a day and see how our users respond to the mass email I sent out earlier. If there's not much change I will seriously lock the News Forum until our users get off their butts and start promoting this thing. I'm also thinking of using some clever Word Censors until the number of pledges reaches a certain amount. :D

Remember, if we can reach 1,000 pledges the campaign will probably send an email blast out about it.
