Vote Turtleshell [Update 2]

VOTE TURTLE

Lucky me, I’ve been nominated for “Most influential Flash site of 1998” with my Turtleshell Flash site. It’s an honor just to be nominated, but I would really enjoy actually winning the title. So please, be a pal, vote turtles’ hell. Vote!

Note: The vote is open August 8th to August 10th. Only 1 vote per voter is counted.

Update: The vote is closed. Results will be in August 11th.

Update 2: Unfortunately, I didn’t win. It was a mind-boggling honor just to be nominated. Thanks for all the votes.

    Thanks both! I appreciate it. It’s very surreal, this thing. An 8 year old blast from the past.

  3. And voted.

    Not that I’d ever heard of it in 1998, but I’m sure it was influential in it’s day. (Was it visited a lot?)

    I suppose it wasn’t widely “influential” in itself, but that day in June ’99 when it won “Macromedia Site of the Day” my hitcount increased 50-fold. I think, more than anything else, that’s what made it reach the list it’s on today. Even so, it’s a huge honor and it would be great fun to win.

    I beg to differ! as i think i have mentioned before turtleshell (version 2) pretty much directly inspired me to pursue a career in web/flash design. It was the first site i saw that got me really excited about what the internet could do/be (before all this web 2.0 stuff). All these years later and i have just this week graduated from a design degree!

    so for me it was very influential.

    I humbly thank you for those profusely kind words. I do appreciate it.

    There’s nothing quite like round shapes and curves. Jokes are welcome.

    Most thankfully it has 🙂

    Wow, I thought we’d all agreed not to mention the hideous reality that was the net in the end of the 90’s anymore. :b

    Ah well. 🙂

    (I did vote for it, either way)

    Yep, those were the days.

    Even if unusable, I kinda miss the whole “we don’t care, we’re just playing” attitude.

    Thanks for the vote.

    Oh right, the vote is closed… I’d better note that.

    Thanks for your support though 🙂

    It’s okay, I was nominated after all. And NRG WAS quite influential back then.

    Well of course! Curves are the reason the internet’s such a success; it’s tubes are round!
