Why are you using "Use pregenerated randomization based on persistent identifier" and not normally randomized? Currently it depends on the order of the qualified persons, and not just random? Tyilo 22:30, July 22, 2011 (UTC)

The reasoning behind using the code is for a verifiable method, so that people from both RSWiki and RuneSlayer can verify the results. It's still random drawn exactly the same as a normal randomized, it's just done in a repeatable method. Grim reaper hood.png Ben RyfosTalk 10:51, July 23, 2011 (UTC)

Not appearing on entry list[edit source]

Yeah so basically just that. I've entered (or so I thought) the last two weeks. When checking the list of entrants, I didn't see my Twitter listed. Can someone provide an explanation? -Kevin (@KAM_Photography)

Hey, I went through to look at this, and from what I'm seeing, the first entry was about 5 days late (week 6, 17 July, your tweet 21 July), Your second entry seem to be on my list (week 7, 22 July), and finally, your third entry has won this week (week 9, two entries, 5 Aug). Looking at your twitter profile, I see no other tweets? Grim reaper hood.png Ben RyfosTalk 18:13, August 7, 2011 (UTC)

I've only appeared one time in week 9, although I tweeted to both @runeslay and @RSWiki. BTW my twitter name is tyilol. Tyilo 23:49, August 7, 2011 (UTC)

Ben you're right. After I made this post, I looked at the page again and realized there was a one day entry window. I didn't know that at first. And super cool and ironic about winning, so on that note really appreciate I'm already deep into the book!
