A week or so ago I started a Status of the Week Contest to find out the most liked status here. The wait is over, and the results are out, and I've also analyzed them to get to some conclusions. I feel that the Contest was quite a success with 97 comments in all and a total of 30 entries.

The Contest's ended, and the winner is Jubayer Nirjhor, with their awesome status:-

"Only two things are infinite: the universe and WinRAR trial period."

He won with a total of \(29\) upvotes, and over Ameya Salankar, who came second with their motivational status:-

"Be kind to people whom you meet while climbing your ladder of success because they are the same people you will meet when falling down!"

**Conclusions:-**

\(\bullet\) The downvote system again proved it's inapplicability, and many cool statuses earned unnecessary downvotes.

\(\bullet\) These things can be fun, like Finn's TPC's and Zi Song's choose a number. I hereby request Finn Hulse to restart hosting the Themed Problem Contests.

\(\bullet\) Out of the 100 comments, 50 were on the first day, so notes get buried deep in the feeds.

\(\bullet\) Aditya Raut got disqualified. -_-

\(\bullet\) Trolls are of two types, healthy trolls and diseased trolls on the basis of their deeds, and on the basis of influence, they're again of two types, contagious and non.

Please comment if you could extract anymore conclusions and tell me if the Contest lacked something, cuz it was the first of this kind...

Let's do another? Maybe the first week of every month?

Thanks, I think another 'Status of the Week' will be boring cuz those who wanted to participate already have. But I like the idea of one competition at the start of a month. In November, I am thinking of "Solution of the Week" or "Kabooble of the Week" or maybe a "Themed Problem Challenge" (if Finn doesn't have the copyright :P)...
