Make-Yer-Own Oscar Pool Page

Okay, the 2004 Make-Yer-Own Oscar Pool Page is up and running. Sorry I got it out so soon before the awards this year, but, until yesterday, I didn’t realize they’d moved the ceremony all the way up to February.

If you find any bugs or have any suggestions, please let me know by email or in the comments to this post. Thanks.

  1. Suggestion: set a “maxlength” to the input that takes the 10 digit number.

  2. Also, the subject of this post says “poll” — don’t you mean “pool” ?

  3. Oh, and for the checkboxes, you really aught to include [label] tags for all those checkboxes. I’ll shut up now.

  4. Drat! Where was this ten days ago when I found out Yahoo wasn’t running theirs? I went and rolled my own, too!

  5. ‘Click here’ links get a bit lost, maybe you could make them clearer?

    Although I hate to criticise. Nice work.

  6. We got a couple Oscars a couple weeks back. We didn’t put them in a pool though, we put them in a tank. Unfortunately, one of the Oscars bit the tail of the other one, killing it. :-(

  7. The the title of one of the the films seems to have something extra.

  8. thank you!!! I always have to make a form and e-mail it out to everybody – you’ve saved me a ton of time. thank you thank you thank you!

  9. TOTALLY UNRELATED TO THIS POST … but … Man, I just want to comment on the Feb. 13 “war on carbs” post. Freakin’ HILARIOUS! I laughed out loud and called my close-by cube dwellers over to check it out. It made our day. Especially since half our office is on carb high-alert.

    Yeeeeargh!

  10. The amount of information is lacking. Do I need to hang onto the emails for my pool, and tabulate them by hand at the end? Or will there be a mechanism to log in and see the final ‘score’?
