The jury is holed up in a hotel in Chennai, immersed in deep thoughts. They will be out Monday morning. As of now they are pouring over the applications, scoring people on multiple criteria, and calling for logs of those who have registered disproportionately high volume of votes in a short period of time.
Good luck to the jury…
from this posts of the organizers, it almost looks like the votes really don’t make much of a difference, since it appears that you’re reviewing all applications.
does this mean that someone with a really great blog, but with hardly any votes, will be able to make it into the top 100?
while i guess it is right for the organizers, that they need someone who can blog well rather than able to get votes, it would not seem right that it should have such a small level of importance (as emerging from the posts on the blog) in the selection of the top 100, (keeping in mind the amount of work participants who have gotten votes have done to publicize the competition.)

Please read the post titled “More Tips”. It clearly explains all the parameters (not just blogging skills), the jury is taking into consideration, including ability to garner votes.

The quantity of Votes and Testimonials would matter to an extent but beyond that Quality of the Contents of the Testimonials would be given importance. I suppose so.The cutting edge would be the strength of the Profile and Visual justification of the Roads traveled and Places visited.
Its getting very serious here. let me tell something in lighter vein ! with apologies to all ! Its about my research on Testimonials ! -
1. Most of the Couples are made for each other with so much of bliss and harmony !

TGDC jury has some work to do! Going through 1000+ profile in 2 days is quite a task and I guess this jury will have to work overtime these 2 days.
Some questions for TGDC team,
Cheers to all the contestants!
