Grats Ujaas. I don't think vin can send it to someone, as it would get complicated. However, you could still send it to one of your friends or something after you receive it from DealsPlus. It would still count as one of your prizes per week though.

It's not in the legal terms, but you may be right... In which case I shouldn't just enter all the contests and should pick and choose a little bit, huh?

how is winning decided? obviously its based on activity. But does it just go into a random program that just chooses someone, or how does that work? just wondering. Thanks
bluevic07 Feb 11, 2007
activity
Flaminfire Feb 11, 2007
I was just about to ask the same thing, my guess is its a program that weighs in your activity plus other htings
wwong131 Feb 11, 2007
ive always wondered that too. we all know that odds are increased by activity but is it some kind of like random computer drawing or does vin actually sort through all the entries and pick someone out. i imagine it must be a pain for him to sort out between 200+ entries keeping in mind the active users having a better odds of winning.*shrug*
5 likes
patriotshater121 Feb 11, 2007
Well I would agree with you, but sometimes people who have like no stats at all win, not that I mind, but it can't be completely based on activity, or people like that wouldn't win.
Flaminfire Feb 11, 2007
It is not completely based on activity, it is added to the whole equation/algorithm, where level is probably also involved. That means the lower level users should try to, cause everyone has a chance, and anyone can win.
mikeisme77 Feb 11, 2007
I agree that it's probably done by a computer program... But I wonder then why it takes a few hours for a winner to be announced since the program should be able to weigh the stats, remove duplicate entrants, and spit out a winner within a few minutes with just a few hundred posts...
mikeisme77 Feb 11, 2007
I'm not complaining about how long it takes (doesn't really bother me), but I'm just wondering why it is that way if a program just crunches the number and spits out a name. Which makes me think it isn't all automated yet.
wwong131 Feb 11, 2007
yea think of it as like raffle tickets or something. the more active you are the more "raffle tickets" you have and odds are increased. that doesnt mean however you are guaranteed to win. the people that only have 1 raffle ticker( the lvl one people that just reply to the thread and hope to win without doing anhything else) cant win. it just means you have more chances. i dono if anyone gets my analogy but this is just my 2 cents on how this thing works

Vazilisk Feb 11, 2007

4 likes
mikeisme77 Feb 11, 2007
That would defeat the purpose of it being a random drawing... Although I guess they don't specifically say it's random... so you may be right.

Your activity in this thread doesn't effect it--it's the overall activity; otherwise people would just spam this thread...
wwong131 Feb 11, 2007
haha thats sort of like what i was saying except your way sounds cooler
ujaas Feb 11, 2007
nah not activity in thread like posting and finding exprired deals and alive again stuff like that

im pretty sure there is no computer program involved

we have computers for a reason and it wouldnt take 2 hrs for them to analyze DATA

so im pretty sure the modearators hand pick the winners
mikeisme77 Feb 11, 2007
Agreed. But I do think they SHOULD have a program... especially if this is now a daily thing... The hard part is determining the weights though as they'd need to figure out a formula for that (if they don't already have one). The rest is just a matter of a SQL script to get the user names of everybody who commented in this thread before it expired and then a python script or something to throw out duplicates, add the weights, and then randomly choose a name. If they really wanted to get "fancy" they could have the script edit the post to add the winner name and send the e-mail(s) notifying the winner(s).
ujaas Feb 11, 2007
make a program for dealplus since they are so busy

that will eliminate all unfairness to this competition since users like me who have alreay won or all the users i have invited think that they have no chance of winning cuz i alrady won something

http://www.goingtoday.com and http://www.musiciansfriend.com/stupid both have daily music specials. I don't know much about whether they're truly good deals or not... Plus, posting daily deals from a site has been a hassle (since they make you confirm you want to overwrite and all of that), but I hear that's going to change... Anyway, since you seem to know more about the musical stuff, you're welcome to check those out and post the good ones.

i don't think it's that...
it seems like ever since all the contests started ( I've been a member since october or november) people seem to have stopped plussing/minusing comments (except for the ones where vin asked us to) as much as they did before so other people wouldn't get higher comment scores.

if that made sense...
