well it cant be the person with the most yays because you saw in a previous contest. only the first few people who entered got 10+ yays. all the rest got tons of nays. Also this months/possibly next months contest is not random. if we like yours the most it will go up. changes are mods wont get to choose but if the owners like it its taken

My comments:

- I think random is okay. Sometimes when things are done by voting it ends up to be a personality contest, which is not the point.

- I *am* surprised it's open to the public, since I would think that making these contests for members only would encourage membership and perhaps build a larger, more diverse community (sorry, that's the moderator in me talking lol).


Just my opinions, of course. :)

actually some of the later submissions where MUCH better than the first few. even then they almost never got the 10+ nays for the extra entry even if they where better. what won him the wii was a post, a single post. that was all that was required last contest. a single post somewhere if you where a premium member got you a entry. and then at the end of the month all the names where put in a hat and a owner of the site (not TA) choose it and then told TA who told me to post it up.

First of all i edited your top post. Secondly this december contest is not random. Its going to be selected by a few individual. I dont think it says its random ill make a bold statement saying the contest will be selected by key staff members. We did last months randomly cause it was something fun for all. Keep in mind we want this site to be usefull to you and fun to be apart of :)

whats wrong with random? everyone has a equal, and random chance of winning. JayJay is just steamed because he didnt win, and then made up some bullcrap story in his head that explains why he didnt win. dont worry, one day youll mature.

oh btw, guess where i work? a meat proccesing plant, yes thats right, i get to work with blood all day long, and with a crazy boss. bassically, i just wipe the asses of other people over there. I FRIKIN SUCKS
