Where's the donation tracker?!Submitted by Spiff on Sat, 04/30/2011 - 19:02
I hope Dr. Paul's 2012 exploratory committee web master realizes that a HUGE part of the success of the 2008 money bombs was being able to watch the donation counter go up, and see your name and state show up for a few minutes after you donate.
Why isn't there a similar donation tracker Flash widget up on http://RonPaul2012.com/ yet? They've got just 5 days before the big debate day money bomb! We don't want this to fizzle because their webmaster was asleep at the wheel. They need to get it posted and debugged and load/stress tested in just 5 days. It should have been up the moment the web site went live last week.
They'd better also be aware of the fact that the 2008 donation tracker used a fairly standard (I think it was JSON) data feed that other sites could read directly. That means with very little effort, RP 2008's webmasters enabled sites like http://ronpaulgraphs.com/ to do their magic, giving us tons of data analysis and allowing us to "compete" among our states and whatnot for bragging rights for who donated the most. They need to have that data feed up and load/stress tested a couple days ahead of time if there's any chance the web wizards at other sites will be able to start giving us fun graphs in time.
If anyone reading this is in touch with the campaign, can you please confirm that they're on top of this?!
