Persona contest results

Happy new year to everyone! As promised, today, on January the 2nd we have concluded the Mozilla Firefox Persona Creation Contest.

As of this last minute of Jan 2nd, there were 39 results to the keyword "Dreamstime" on Mozilla Personas page.

13 designers joined the contest with their works.

1 of the designs was my own, for reference, so it leaves 38 competing designs.

21 of the 38 would have been not qualified, because the element "" was not visible (partly or entirely) on an Mac OS X version of Firefox (requirement was to be visible on all versions of FireFox). That is over 55% so apparently I would have needed to point this out more clearly.

Some of the designs were unusable in practical terms, either the color for text was poorly chosen or the background was so festive, that it interfered with the text upon it. But this was not in the rules, so... a matter of taste.

But there were some very pleasing designs, that I would wear myself. My favourites are Dreamstime Flares and Blue Abstract. A good design for this purpose must be vey gentle and subtle, non-intrusive - people have to stare at it days and weeks on end in their browsers so... it has to blend in nicely.

Altogether, I hope this was a fun excercise for all who participated, you will be contacted by our staff regarding the merchandize shortly.

The GRAND PRIZE WINNER of this little competition is

Annabelle with a beautiful and perfectly usable design here

At the decisive moment this design had 14 users, closely followed by another design from Annabelle, with 13 users :)

CONGRATULATIONS and a big thank you for all who participated, and for those who thought they would participate, but for some reason could not do so this time - I hope this was fun "doing something else" than your usual occupation! ;)

I see that my persona dreamstime animated lightning is on the first page Up & Coming Personas. Full success:)) And the number of active users still growing.....


Thanks Kutt
I think your decision was fair.I had no active users show up and I know several friends added mine.Like you stated it was firefox with the problem.I was just happy to get my hoodie.Thanks so much.


Thank You for explanation:)


Regarding the Mozilla counter issue, we decided to go with the already published results. The reason for this is, that at the time of contest we had no idea the counter was lying. It was showing some numbers and this being totally unrelated to us, we concluded our stats regarding those numbers (albeit wrong numbers). Since the conditions were same for all participants, we see no need to re-evaluate our decision. This was just force majeure and an unfortunate glitch for some / fortunate for others ;)


Udra11 - we will look into this, need some time for the verdict. This was a surprise for us, since the numbers came in sometimes (I mean there where SOME users).

Thanatonautii - please be more patient. I know you are all very excited about it, but let the staff contact YOU regarding the item and delivery. All the names of participants have been recorded and are being communicated with.

Thanks for the info about the issue.


Whether the contest was fair?
The persona "*user counter*" has been broken since mid-December.
Who sent personas in mid-December he had no chance of winning because the counter of active users did not work. You can read everything about this subject here
Of course the fault lies on Persona Team, DT has nothing to do but the fact remains. It is impossible that suddenly i have one day 61 active users. The end of contest was in 2-nd january update active users of personas was 6-th. I think that Demonike fix this problem and give us explanation. Thank you.


Question again! Maybe at this one I`ll get an answer :P How can I get my item from the merchandise store....they ask me for my credit card :P
