Be nice. You can't prove you'd do better, so the discussion is pointless.


With all due respect, I don't think this is a solution that will satisfy many people... I would be much less motivated to enter a contest involving creativity if I knew it would be a lottery. I just think future contests should be filtered for the rules before judging, really... Seems pretty simple. If it's random, people will simply complain there was no creative thought involved, and that they should have won because of that!

Of course, people will always complain on the internet, ESPECIALLY trekkies

I think you folks dropped the ball a bit on this one, but instead of making the contests random and therefore not very meaningful (you might as well just pick a random username at that point, forget the contest), why not just learn from this one and make the next one clearer?
