Help KDE e.V. secure funding for a sprint with just a few clicks

Some weeks ago Lydia blogged about a German bank giving away 1000 euros for each 1000 associations who can get the most votes. Well, until eight days ago we were at postion 320, now we are at 1155, as you can see:



If the poll finished today we would be out :-( The poll finishes tomorrow, so we need the votes now. Please, read Lydia's post about how to vote and help KDE e.V., it is just a few clicks.

Just the poll page is in German, but the poll is not limited to German citizens. Anyone can vote three times using your e-mail.

I would like to thank who have voted in the last days. Unfortunately we still need more votes since the poll finishes tomorrow. In the last 24h we have lost several positions, we need to keep the pace we were before to reach our goal.

I've voted now. Originally I just skimmed the article and assumed voting was only open to German residents. It might be worth explicitly clarifying the fact that anyone can vote.

Ok, I added a notice about that. Thanks for pointing that out and for voting.

hmm, something seems not right:
kde currently ranks on 724 with 4239 votes
rank 723 has 4236 votes
rank722 has 4237 votes
...
rank 726 has 4264 votes...

still, i voted =)

The rank is updated each 15 minutes. During this time one associate can have less votes and yet be better ranked.

Now KDE dropped to rank 845.

And now below 1000. That's probably the end...

Maybe if It would have been put on www.kde.org Things could have been different.

I do not know. Here in Brasil we advertised the poll in some open source sites. That boosted KDE e.V. votes for some time but then stopped. I think KDE users are not that willing to help in funding the project :-/ or decided to vote in other projects.

Its funny and depressing at the same time that most of the first few hundred seem to be obviously tiny clubs like volunteer fire departments from towns with like 5000 inhabitants. :/
