Both tied at 32% now... Thank you all :)

Too early for thanks, todoist are likely to push hard for this, expect another call to arms from them

Serif needs to go all out if they want to win this ( Where's my email from you guys? -  I don't follow social media)

Remember people you do not have to be on Windows 10 or have brought the product from the Windows Store, you just need any email to vote.

Create a new one (Yahoo, Gmail) if you do not want to give Microsoft your details


Due to the fact that Boris Johnson is now our Prime Minister, punctuation, spelling and grammar will never be worried about ever again.  We now have far bigger problems to be worried about.

A Skype account works, too.  Phone too, but I'd never give the phone...

A lot of people have some almost-idle hotmail account. That'd be a good way.

 

IMO, quite an achievement just to be on par with an app counting on three enormous advantages promotion-wise : 1) Is free. 2) Is of general use, not for the niche of designers, inside the niche of ppl capable of making graphics, and only those who are particularly interested in alternative commercial software. If anything... chapeau to still being able to be on par, for now. 3) Among the several types of general use apps, it seems is a "getting things done" kind of thing? (I dunno), if so, that tends to be quite of the likes (very trendy) of the average user. (then there's the weirdos like me that never used those)

 

I don't know how this escaped my radar, my bad, but if I'd have noticed, I'd have been doing at least something to promote (you know, every grain of sand might count...).... (I mean, without being spammy, as that's worse than doing nothing, and disallowed in any forum/social media, these days). With gigs all over now, can't improvise well anything for 3 days.... :S  Again, that was my bad, tho. I guess my bad habit on checking mostly just threads of "content I posted in/follow", and email subscriptions (not checking all as much as in the first Windows beta times with Photo, etc).

Yay!!!!

Just got an email from Serif asking me to Vote for them

If I had not been a member of this forum and had not already voted I would certainly have done so now

Let's hope it's enough

Yes, fair play appreciated. Please vote only once, even if you have multiple MS accounts. Winning with a fair play will taste like strawberries and champagne.

Got the email too. Good move, Affinity Team.

It could flip again. It ain't over until the fat lady sings. Not the cat playing the trumpet...

Agreed, don't put off voting just because Affinity are way ahead at the moment.  They were way ahead before and todoist rallied their troops and overtook Affinity big time

todoist will be looking to do that again and possibly working on a way as we speak

Getting too cocky/complacent in this thread could lose Affinity's sudden surge ahead today

Let's invoke the Pied Piper (unintended reference to Silicon Valley, the TV show) of Hamelin of all vector designers (with a taste for the alternative flavour) . One app to rule them all, one app to find them, one app to bring them all, and in the darkness bind them. (surely in summer).
