This month’s winning wizard

After much discussion and review, has pleasure in announcing that Liesel Fynn, a Payroll Officer based in Melbourne Australia has won this month’s WizardWiki wizard of the month with her wizard: How to Create a Custom Ringtone for Your iPhone From an MP3 File. 

This was Liesel’s first wizard, created using the gStepOne Google Wizard writer, netting her a cool $1,000.

Liesel decided on the wizard after struggling to create a custom ringtone for her iPhone using instructions on the net.  “They were vague and frustrating, and left out a key step.  All I wanted was a new ringtone!  I thought if I was having trouble, then so were other people.  Then I saw some of the wizards on WizardWiki and decided to write my own.”

Leisel's wizard steps you through the process, with clear, simple instructions, including screen shots, multiple pathways that ensure you get the job done no matter how you are approaching the task. Check it out by clicking on the map.

While you're there check out some of the other technology wizards, including how to tether your iPhone or how to Setup and configure your Google Apps for Small Business.

The standard of entries was very high and the decision was quite difficult. However, the judges’ decision was unanimous: Liesel’s wizard scored highest on four of the seven criteria:
1. Popularity of the Wizard
2. Topicality of the Wizard
3. Usefulness and applicability of the Wizard
4. Quality of the Wizard design and writing.

Said chief judge Lino Rizio: “Liesel’s wizard is a good example of what a wizard should do: it enables you to do something you couldn’t do previously without expert help: in this case, once you have completed the wizard, you have updated your ring tone. It is with pleasure that we credit US$1,000 to Leisel’s PayPal account.

Liesel did it, now it’s your turn! The December/January competition has started and closes on 9 January. Start mapping out your wizard today: who knows? It could win you US$1,000!
