Tonight after we hit 500k, do you think the campaign should just double the size of the thermometer to 1 mil, or should they leave the 500k one filled up, and add an empty 500K thermometer next to it?

I say they should add a second one.

just extend it, but make sure to show that the goal has been met, so the media can see the monetary goodness overflowing.

I say keep the thing as is...and just grow and grow...that way the media can see the difference instead of thinking that it was a 1 million goal all along

exactly, if a new thermometer was put up I could just see the bullshit coming from the neo-cons. "Ron Paul falls short, again", "Paullies can't spam with thier wallets". Or other various forms of bullshit.

Just move the digits closer together and top it at 750K, and be ready to do it again for 1mil about 36 hours later.

Make mercury spill out of it and flash, "Overwhelming support!"

Well the fact that they changed the graphic when it became clear that 500k would get surpassed, by extending the thermometer through the top of the window (it used to show the whole thermometer with 500k at the very top), indicates that they plan to just keep showing more of this thermometer as they up the ante to whatever the next goal is, probably a full million.

They should also show that this started last Monday - so it is not treated like this is the total donations for the quarter or something

Bigger, but keep the original goal.....this is very important.

Otherwise it wont look to someone new ( who didnt know of the original goal) that it was already met and greatly exceeded. Just shrink down the current one and make the top longer, and put no graduations after 500,000

I think the thermometer is slowing down- everyone is waiting for it to get to $499,000+ so they can be the one to put it over $500,000 :)
