    I sent a PM to someone to randomise and anonimise the list of members who joined, so effectively draw number 2 has started.

    Maybe the drawings are going through some uber randomizing, to really ensure impartiality ;)

    If you need assistance this evening, give me a holler. I'm not entering for anything, so if you need someone to help draw winners, randomize, or whatever else, shoot me a pm. :respect:

    Well, you are actually in the entrants list, lol. And I think it is still okay for you to randomise the name list. You will not do the actual drawing that way so that should be cool. I am wishing to wait for CP though until tomorrow-ish.

    We've been using the system that theonedub proposed for awhile now so you can deploy that at any time to draw the winners.

    See below:
    To ensure everyone gets a fair shake and to minimize any potential conflict of interest while maintaining the highest level of transparency- I have drafted a new way to draw winners. The system uses (3) members and works as follows:

    The system makes sure that there is no bias or other favoritism at play when winners are drawn. Winners are drawn based on a random number instead of usernames- where a possibility exists to redraw if that person doesn’t like who won, draw a friend, draw themselves, pass on new members, or skip doing a random drawing all together.

    My hope is that this will alleviate any concerns about drawings and their legitimacy. If it works smoothly, I would like to see this become the new standard when conducting giveaways that have prizes donated by the community.

    If there are any questions about this system, drop me a PM.

    Patience is a virtue/Good things come to those who wait.....;)



    The drawing will get done- let's be understanding of everyone's time availability and give it a little while longer

    Since I have got a virtually unlimited supply of Win7 & Win8 Pro & Enterprise keys for personal use, I am going to turn down the one I won.
    It is Your call whether redraw for this key or withhold it for some other challenge.
    Sorry for the inconvenience.

    Oddly enough, I somehow thought there weren't as many Win7 keys for the drawing, but thought it instead had more PayPal gifts. My mind must have played a trick on me once again. Had I realized the drawing was mosly Win7 keys, I would not have entered it due to a high chance of this happening. Which did happen now.

    Also, Thank You for arranging this splendid challenge! And for the giveaway! You guys rock! :rockout:
    Not only did it help science & technology, but it also indirectly helped me a lot during the time the challenge was active. Cheers!

    If any of the US winners likes the mouse and wishes to get it, he/she could give sabre23 the key/PP gift depending on whether this works for the involved people. So basically I suggest to the winners to swap if they wish. I cannot force this though, only suggest this.
