    Count me as not noticing. I noticed the banner announcing it after I saw this post (although it was the first thread I opened today)

    When did it go up? I may have not noticed it because the banner for the survey was up so long that I started to ignore it.

    When was this originally planned and announced? Looking at the schedule, it looks like it actually took time to put together.
    Unfortunately I missed most of it. It looks like 4 hours left. They just started the finale. (looks like a repeat of what I saw this morning. Is the last segment left over from this weekend?)

    I think it was planned last month. There was one or more mentions in the Astronomy Casts recently and then a lot more talk on Google+.

    More proof that they ignore the forum?

    Sorry, I don't know anything more than what I posted and what is at the links. I'm just the messenger (and not the one orbiting Mercury).

    I got carpet bombed. They hit twitter, the forum (2 posts counting this one, the banner, calendar and hangout button), meetup.com, plus.google.com, slate.com via Phil Plait, cq blog (twice), Astronomy cast, and maybe facebook.com.

    I watched a bit and gave some money. Hopefully, it helped.
