Toss It! Winners Announced Answered

All right, the winners of the Toss It! speed contest have been decided! We saw a lot of great entries and several good videos of successful, and not successful, flights. We love paper airplanes and were excited to see all of you get into them as well.

In determining the winners, some duplicate votes were thrown out and for the random winner we picked a short list of Instructables, taped them to planes, and the one that went the farthest won.

On with the winners!

Thank you all! I am very happy to hear. Now I have to wear the instructables robot T-Shirt on every new Instructable. A lot of Ideas waiting in my Brain! ;-) Thanks, WattSekunde

We'll be sending out info to winners early next week.

WTF was up with you saying everyone's videos were to long, or short, or non existent?

Some were over 30 seconds. Under 30 seconds were okay... and some didn't have the paper thing printed out. Yours was too long. It was over 30 seconds.

I never read anywhere about it having to be 'zactly 30 seconds... Wasn't the example vid over 30 secs?

That was just theirs, for an example but not really.... Anyways...

It did say that. But it doesn't anymore... it said the video has to be at least under 30 seconds or something.

*raises hands unto the heavens and weeps for the loss of a simple life in trees*

It was stated in the "how to enter" section. It should've been repeated elsewhere to be clearer, but the rule was always there. That said, yours wasn't disqualified for length anyway.

Yah I kinda had trouble navigating th contest page, couldn't view all entries, or find rules etc...

AWESOME! Finally, I won! Thanks so much! Thanks to ledzeppie as well.

My parents said it's okay for me to get the stuff... do I get a PM or something?

I checked, but I didn't get one. =/
Maybe later. I must wait.

It takes a week or two, just be patient, and congrats on the win, you definitely deserve it =]

Yeah, you will get a PM and Congratulations. You deserve the prize.! Keep up the good work!!

why thank me?

but anyways now that i look at it, your instructable may have lacked originality, but the instruction was very good. i hope my instruction on my latest instructable is as good

Awesome contest guys! Glad to see so many awesome speed contests nowadays... I've gotta enter one of those.....

Nice job everybody!!

Hay yo i made a robot head like in the random prize one shoeld i post?

Kiteman's Law. Er, I mean, yes, of course!

Grats MIKEY, my plane was seen twice in this vid : ) WHO THREW MY AIRPLANE!?!??!?!

Yay! Congrats everyone. I attempted and failed horribly so it didn't even make it onto the site. :)

Congrats all.....I never could get mine to actually fly so I kind of gave up and didn't post it (that effectively shoots down any "late in life" career plans in building airplanes I suppose ;-)
