Nah, he deleted the second entry before the draw.

Congratulations, Mandrake50.

You are a flashaholic if you are forced to come out of the closet, to make room for more flashlights.

I saw the double-post – and deletion of it – but the problem becomes that with this format, there is no way for me to delete a post and/or disqualify someone without doing the same to someone else who might accidentally do so. And if said disqualifying post is in the middle of posts, I can’t see a way to preserve the post # selection process from then on. Ultimately, a random.org selection takes the total number of posts and selects, irregardless of one particular person. So in this case, I put in 3-99 and a selection was made.

I don’t see a huge problem here. The selected number was actually prior to the additional accidental post. So, to me, we are okay. And in the interest of true randomness, I’ve let it stand.

Maybe there should be rules with more specific guidelines than we presently go by?

It might be a pain but keeping a numbered list of eligible participants in post #1 or #2 would solve any double post issues. For example, since you drew a # up to #99 it could potentially skew the randomness since you are increase the # of random #‘s to choose from

There is a difference. It doesn’t matter where a second post is made – it reduces the probability of others winning.

Or use a shared spreadsheet to be filled by the candidates. Easy to eliminate double entries.

In the only GAW I’ve ever conducted I entered all qualified users into a spreadsheet myself. Not too many users over there, but this is BLF

It reduces the probability of everyone participating to win, even the one who has the double entry (if one entry is correctly marked as invalid). But in case the invalid post number is drawn, the procedure could be repeated, rectifying the problem.

I don't think it's a big deal. Hopefully, we're all having fun here, and I'm sure nobody wants to make this a difficult or contentious thing for Rusty Joe.

The only change I would make is to add a rule reserving the right to make any modification to the rules you may see fit to make.

Thanks, Joe!

Thanks, all. It has been fun.

This gets back to a letter-of-law vs spirit-of-law situation. It’s possible for someone to add a thought or innocently make a second post not thinking. And if I could have deleted the secondary post, I would have and THEN input the data. I will take greater care next time to have admin remove any extra postings and then proceed.

I can completely understand an accidental double post which this obviously was.

I cannot understand the poster writing “deleted” and leaving the post.
There is no excuse for that at all.

The double poster had the option to delete his accidental post completely by clicking the “Delete Button” at the bottom of his post.
Yet he did not do that. And in all likelyhood his oversight skewed the outcome.

There is no need to have the admin. remove the post. A poster can delete & remove his own post, leaving no trace of it at all.
