Hamishwillee - FIRST SEGMENT DONE - Judging over the next few days ....
Hi Shaii, Eetomla, Thomas,
Yes, your articles all made it - though feel free to check the list above and confirm I got them all! We will be judging over the next few days, and I hope to have a result by Tuesday at the latest (probably earlier).
One point to make is that this is an article competition, so the best article will win, not necessarily the coolest idea or code implementation. "Best" is somewhat subjective, but we'll be looking at things like how easy it is for someone to learn from your article and reuse the content and also how many people would want to reuse it. While not necessary in all cases, we've found that these great articles often have links to other articles and reference material, they also usually have a downloadable code example that makes it easier for people to try. Code fragments are usually well documented and presented in readable chunks. That is not to say we don't like "cool" - ambitious projects that are also accessible to readers are the ideal!
Last point is that even if you don't win, your articles will go through to the next round and will also be assessed for the grand prize. It is possible for you to improve them - indeed the winning article in our last competition did not win in the first round - but was improved steadily over the competition until it was a "stand out" winner.
PS Thanks everyone who also provided #Feedback. Some of this has already gone into the candidate tools and the product teams are pretty grateful for your help. I'm particularly pleased because there is a discussion going on between some of you and the teams responsible - which is much more productive than one-way feedback.
03:15, 1 August 2012 (EEST)
Eetomla - Improving articles?Hamish: Can we continue on improving our articles or should we wait until Tuesday?
10:32, 2 August 2012 (EEST)
Oniongarlic - My entry..Sorry if I wasn't supposed to add my entry to the list myself.
11:05, 2 August 2012 (EEST)
Hamishwillee - Tomi and Oniongarlic
Tommi, you can improve the articles at any time - we can review historical copy if needed for judging (it shouldn't be, judges comments are in now, and I'm hoping to announce winners today or Monday once these are compiled.Oniongarlic - you weren't but since I did nothing to prevent you, not your fault :-) It was added after the cut off I believe and is still under construction so not eligible for judging this round. Incidentally, I think this article still needs work, but the fact that you can do this is very cool.
02:49, 3 August 2012 (EEST)
Hamishwillee - Winners of first segment announcedSee #The Winners above for information about the winning articles. This was pretty tough - we had 5 stand-out entries and only 3 prizes. There were also quite a few other articles that were highly favoured, and with some improvements could have won - hoping to see them in the winner list next round!

Hamishwillee - Thanks Shaii
Added the new article above to competition list (should this still be in draft?), and removed the video I liked least from the page flip effect. I haven't reviewed the articles yet - at this point will probably do when judging.

Hamishwillee - @lightwind - doneYou article added. Note that this still looks a bit like a work in process - lots of italic from the template.
04:14, 31 August 2012 (EEST)
Igordsm - Updated and new entry
I updated my old entry (but only to say that the ad providers that I tested didn't work :S) and added a new entry about gestures in Nokia Asha Web Apps.
I will probably proof read it tomorrow (it's almost midnight in Brazil), but the content won't change dramatically.Anyway, thanks for this competition. IMHO, it is a very interesting way of creating developer interest in Series 40 and I enjoyed participating.
05:42, 31 August 2012 (EEST)
Hamishwillee - Thanks Igor
Added.You're welcome for the competition. I must say I'm quite pleased with the result - the overall quality has been improving, and I've learned a lot.

Hamishwillee - Don't FORGET top check that your article IS IN THE LISTIf its not in the list #Competition_entries, we won't know to judge it. In this case, add a comment here so I can add it.
07:27, 31 August 2012 (EEST)
Hamishwillee - All done, bar the shouting
This competition is now complete. Thank you everyone who competed, either with an article or by providing feedback. You created a lot of really good content!
07:29, 7 September 2012 (EEST)
Lightwind - disappointed
i disappointed nokia browser 2.0 never support css2 fully position property is not working i done the full game but i am not qualify most welcome thanks no one didn't consider the work here nokia web sdk only for the app not for the game i done higher end game with non stable sdk. thank you for hamishwillee good judgement.
10:29, 7 September 2012 (EEST)
Hamishwillee - @Lightwind - yes, it sux
Your article was in the set where we had lots of arguments among the judges about relative merit - there was general agreement that it was pretty good so you were a bit unlucky not to get a prize in the final count. I liked the logical structure, images and videos. As an article it was slightly "code heavy" and there were bits that could have used more explanation, but overall it was well about the wiki average. I'd be happy to see a lot more articles from you!
With respect to code that does not work on device, but does on local preview, I also assumed that Local Preview and Cloud Preview would essentially produce the same results. So this was sadly not good judgement on my part but ignorance. A similar problem exists for eetomla's articles. Judges decisions were final, and we're not reverting decisions on this basis.
Since I hope that in the next browser iterations we will have the required support, I suggest we add a disclaimer stating that this code does not work on device. OK?
