On the current Intermountain promotion, is it one entry per house hold or one entry per Air Forums member?

Thanks,

I would recommend NOT USING RANDOM.ORG. It's not so random, and a number of threads across the internet have pointed out the glitches. You can observe yourself by having it generate 20 random numbers for you between 2 and 100.

The first & last few numbers are less likely than others to be elected.

Random.org usually rarely picks the first and last numbers in the range one sets in the randomiser box, so to make the contest fair for all I start numbering the entrants in the thread at 7. Then when I go to random.org I set the range starting at 1. (If the randomly chosen number is 1-6 I roll it again.)

(I could use any number beyond 2-3, I guess, but I like the number 7 for some reason.)

I also add a buffer at the opposite end. If the last entrant in a contest is numbered 26, for example, I add another 6 to the maximum range I set at random.org.

(In this example i'd set 1-32 as the range at random.org, with the numbers 1-6 and 27-32 being buffers and the actual entrants being the other numbers from 7-26.)

If you've responded to the give-a-way thread and think you've posted the correct information be sure to double-check you've complied with the rules. If I understand the rules correctly, there are several posts that do not meet the guidelines. I think you still have a limited time to have your post corrected before the drawing. I think moderators can correct your post if there's a problem. Then again, I may not understand the rules!

Lightbulb Make a Video?!

Will you guys attempt to make a video of yourselves clicking the randomizing button?! Maybe have a person off camera verify if they are winners by having qualifying posts, or hit it more than 3 times, anticipating that there will be some that don't qualify... Just a thought...

Do I have to buy what I linked?

1) If I post links to more than what I win, can I pick different items later? I mean to say, if I pick a $550 AND some $100 items, if I win 2nd place, I can buy the lower priced items without having to purchase the $550 item, right?

2)Or can I just start from scratch if I win??!


***I guess you guys answered this. it would be 2)yes...?

Does the contest end 4/20? I noticed it hasn't.
