I assume these results include the weekend's take.  Is it possible Dustin only got 29 people to sign up in Dallas?

Only?

I think twenty nine is pretty good for one weekend.  Hell, that's almost a third of what he went down there with!

Given the fact that they were giving away items of equal value to the subscription just for people to sign up, I was expecting more than 30 people to avail themselves of the offer.  I mean, 30 people is like 1 or 2 an hour.  I was expecting him to double his count.  I thought it was an effective idea to get a lot more bounties.

Considering the cost of flying him down there, a booth at the convention, and the wholesale value of the hand-outs, I wonder if it would have been cheaper for them to just buy 30 subscriptions and give them away.

I don't know... maybe some of the people who signed up are still being processed.  The tally doesn't update dynamically, after all.

I think the predictions will come true - PW and crew will buy the subscriptions that Dustin needs to win.  He's only nine referrals away from matching USC.

Well, as far as we know, USC could be buying the subscriptions to match Dustin.  Who knows... he could be a millionaire who wants to be in the Insider.

Holy crap!

1. uscwannabe 156
2. dustin @rebelscum.com 119
3. mkDCSWCC 9
4. fanostarwars 3

So Dustin goes to Dallas, gives away free loot, and bags about 30 'scrips.  Meanwhile, uscwannabe magically rounds up 30 of his own while giving away nothing at a convention?  It must have been my withdrawl from the race and subsequent endorsement of him that gave him a boost...  ;)


Is anyone else amazed that these two guys have racked up 275 subscriptions between them?  That's about $10,986.25 in revenue for Lucas. 

Think that will cover the trip to SDCC they are giving away to the winner?  :P

Fan Club still blows.

Jeff's endorsement is strong though, obviously.  Look at that surge...

What winner? I still say they only have 131 subscriptions plus all the people with one each. USCWannabe is a fake account used by LFL to generate interest and more subscriptions from people who are just in this for "fun" like Philip and Dustin.

Notice how whenever Dustin gets more votes USC somehow matches them, but he never goes over too high, or Dustin would just give up. If LFL keeps it close Dustin will keep buying real subscriptions, thus generating more money.

Nope. It's just a lame conspiracy theory, but it is something I wouldn't put past them. ::)

From RS:

Quote from: Sidiously_Darth
So, how long does it take for Hyperspace to add a referral to a candidate's total? I just renewed my subscription 3 more times. I hope it works and helps put Dustin just that much closer to beating this phantom SW fan.

Good Luck Dustin!!!

I'm... speechless.  It's one thing to help out a guy by plugging his name in when you're renewing your membership, or even to buy a membership you hadn't intended to get, but this... ?  By what Sidiously Darth has said, he has apparently renewed his HS subscription at least 4 times at $40 a pop.  I don't know that I'd spend $160 to get my best friend or even my sister a free trip to San Diego, let alone some guy I at best hardly know.   :o

In all fairness and the concept of "equal time," Star Wars EnDirect has now posted a podcast interview with USCWannabe - aka Tommy Costabile. Have a listen:
