Example(s) the pig methane plant from Mad Max- Thunderdome solar power from space mirrors cold fusion Requirements & Closing: Must be an active TPU WCG or F@H member with results returned by Wednesday, 10/9/13, which is when the giveaway is scheduled to end Let's aim for 10pm. I know that's later than usual, so if it etc too late, we will just do Thursday Random Drawing: Drawings will be done randomly, as outlined in the following spoiler below Spoiler: Drawing Process 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. Another big thanks to all those who are actively crunching and assisting the WCG! These are fun challenges that allow us a chance to try some new projects, help some scientific research, expand our knowledge, and gives us a chance to win some free stuff THanks for all your efforts TeamTPU!
