What's a 'webite'? 08:51, 29 December 2014 (UTC)

I think it's a term related to the "wobsite". --Koveras (talk) 09:41, 29 December 2014 (UTC)

He first refreshed the web(s)ite and thén woke up? NGLN (talk) 14:38, 29 December 2014 (UTC)

I believe it is possible to check one's phone while sleeping (i.e. partly asleep) and not remember having done so in the morning. Research is needed into this matter. Mrob27 (talk) 14:54, 29 December 2014 (UTC)

The title text implies that checking the phone is an even more fundamental resting state for her than sleeping. As an analogy, you may subconsciously play with a sharp object while watching TV. You don't notice it until it pricks you. Same way, she was checking her phone while sleeping. Noticing that she'd won made her wake up. -quantumfrost (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)

My interpretation is that this refreshing is a continuation of the contest. Maybe they either are adding this data to their original data, or this is a second contest, or this refreshing is the actual contest, because all the contest entry and judging was either a ruse, or the data was lost somehow. -- 20:54, 29 December 2014 (UTC)

"The title text implies that Megan checks her phone so compulsively she even does it in her sleep. This probably contributed to her victory." - There's no indication that the titletext relates to Megan, and not just any other eventual winner... But it could be, of course. 15:05, 30 December 2014 (UTC)

I'm thinking of a different version. Maybe the contest never had a winner, she was only dreaming she had won. A complete irony to how refreshing the phone is completely pointless and we've never woken up from that fact. (talk) (please sign your comments with ~~~~)

On "webite": I strongly believe that it's just a typo of "website". 02:05, 3 January 2015 (UTC)
