MapArt Friday! This one's tough. When did your state officially become a state? Oldest state (Delaware) should be 100% blue. Newest (Hawaii) should be 100% red. Others should "get in line" in between them.
We are STILL A COLONY!!!
Colony number 3 here
Cali cracks me up.
I was one of the colonies!
Colony number 3 right here
Cali loose some more blue. It's hard for me too but it's map art people.
I see texans are taking their dear sweet time remembering the Alamo!
Pennsylvania is still miffed over missing out on 1st state. We deserved that Delaware you greedy little people! :)
I am really I intrigued by the 12% of Virginians that voted red...really?
Aiming for 10%. Duh
Did we actually do it?!? This one I am actually impressed with.
dammit West Virginia
West Virginia wasn't a state until the Civil war
It was a county in Virginia!
I was actually impressed with West Virginia... They seceded at civil war because they didn't feel their voice was being heard in the legislature over the many many plantation owners in Virginia. Way to go WV! Kentucky, apparently not so much
Oklahoma should be a red state in a sea of blue. 1907 was our year and every state around us had already been a state for a long time. We were Indian territory before that.
Sea of purple rather.
What your states percentage should be is
(State Number - 1) x 2.041
Percentage red you mean ;-)
Gotta love these math-minded people!
Lol @ Delaware and Hawaii. Apparently their education systems aren't working.
West Virginia, you rebel you.
Funnily enough, they are red because they weren't rebels!
Damn it West Virginia! Why are you red?
Because West Virginia came about after the civil war.
They were the 35th state so they should be red. They split off from Virginia.
Ain't nobody got time for that.
Delaware and Hawaii: I have to say I am quite disappointed in you two. I really expected more of you. I'd like you both to think about what you've done and come back when you're ready to apologize.
I think ( I mean hope) that it was a joke.
Follow me for Walking dead polls in preparation for the finale will post questions during the final episode too!
I give up. Texas got worse over night and the states that are way off aren't budging.
C'mon Texas. Look, I know you have a near fanatical devotion to the color red, but we need just a little more blue to make this work. Can't you just put away your political biases just this once? For science?
It turns out that the Virgin Islands was the first state.
Holy crap it's actually working.
It's funny because we're all human...and incapable of cooperating.
Some people in Delaware and Hawaii still managed to screw it up even after being led through it.
Some people just want to watch the world burn lol
I chuckled at Guam and Puerto Rico
West Virginia - 35th!
That's nice lets go jersey
Come on Florida... Little more red here
I can't believe Alaska and Delaware. What do you not understand about 100%.
Sorry Alaska, I meant Hawaii.
I'm just now figuring out how the gradient color shows up when you tap the map. I've been so confused the past few weeks...
Oh holy crap......wow.
Thanks for the tip. I feel like a big dumbass!
Hey.. I admit my mistakes. It's all good.
whoa. wow. I think a lot of us didn't know that. and I thought we were just a big fail...
Good call! I had no idea.... Oops!
I'm giving SoH nation a passing grade on this one. Way to go y'all! ????????
I'm the 7th state!
just a note to fellow Utahans, as the 45th state we should be almost completely red. little less blue :)
Dat westward expansion.
Manifest destiny doe
Wow stupid people In Delaware and Pa -_-
Whoever voted blue in Hawaii just likes to watch the world burn
I don't like this one. It isn't really art, just a challenge. I like stuff that looks pretty.
Less blue! Less blue!
Delaware! what the FU�K
PA! we only needed 2% red...not 10%
@Tony. Help me understand this Mapart poll.
IL need more red. What's difficult ?
WV, you had ONE job.....
I left and it fell apart. Lol. ;)
I love map art fri....its a chance to all work together and put our political junk aside...and we seem to be getting them completed quicker....keep it up Tony!!!
Yet another week I don't understand this question. Will anyone please direct me to an answer. It seems I'm not alone. Thanks in advance.
The date of each state's admission, with Delaware being the first (all blue) and Hawaii being the last (all red). Arkansas and Michigan were 25th and 26th so they should be purple (by a near 50/50 split of their votes) and the rest a smooth gradient between. Touch the map to see the gradient.
@zodd. Thanks but I'm just not getting it and its the same every Friday.
Don't feel bad BabyBoomer, the tricky part is there's nothing to "get". The question and results don't mean anything statistically, it's just a goofy way to let off steam by painting colors in the map with our blue or red votes. You have to click on "results" then touch the US map to see the "art".
I want to know why Puerto Rico and Guam even bothered voting...
They have heart son. Maybe someday tony will even add them to the map.
Don't forget DC and VI
Thanks for giving me the answer Tony!
Ha ha! Agreed, not me though. Must be a slower, lower Delawarean.
Tony can we do a Mapart of the flag??? Gray being the white stripes and the stars??
There's always that one person that messes it up though.
That would require a lot of people not to vote, which would never happen because people can't see the results until they've voted.
You could do it with multi option polls.
Why is PA still 9% red?? Come on PA a few of you need to switch over to the Smurf Side
I'm very proud of West Virginia, it was created during the civil war.
