Scallywags, Who be Winning!? 1


The contest has come to a close. I’m thrilled at the response I received this year and want to sincerely thank everyone that participated for lifting my spirits. Game designers will always joke that we don’t do this for money… but the truth is… I don’t. I do it because I enjoy it and the encouragement of my readers and followers empowers me to continue. Thank you. Very much.

Enough of the sappiness… on to the good stuff.

There were 71 entries in yesterday’s contest. The original Tweet was retweeted 44 times and the post on my site generated 27 comments. That’s pretty darn awesome. Some of those are duplicate entries, but I decided to allow it… after all, pirates be takin’ advantage of the system!

I plugged some numbers in here, sorted some things there, and narrowed down that list to a single winner:

Twitter user @phillips7

 

I had a blast. Thanks for entering. I’m totally keeping up this tradition!

 


If you are curious about the my process… here’s what I did.

  • Pulled out all the RT’s from Twitter and made a list (I had to manually do some of this from my phone because the website list kept cutting off at 24 names)
  • Copied all the user names from the comments section of the page and added them to the list (again, manually)
  • Go to random.org and paste in the list in their lists randomizer… then randomize the list
  • Ask random.org to provide a random number between 1 and 71: it picked #65

That’s all there is to it!

Here’s the list for the curious:
