Hmm, a few repeat winners this time, but Hyacinthus certainly scores a lot of free swag. And the winners are:

How do you judge for the contests? Drop names in a hat?
I search on the contest keyword, which brings up a list of everyone who entered that contest. I put the number of submissions into an online random number generator, let it pick a number, and then count down from the top until I hit that number. Sometimes I vary the sort, as well, so I'll list all the entries, but then sort on name, or sort on date received, etc.
But that's about it.
Yeh i had been kinda wondering tht and then i was like well maybe he jsut picks his favourite and obvioulsy from this contest hyacinthus is his fav... JK JK
~~~NO DAY BUT TODAY~~~
i think hyacinthus is trying to take over the world O.o
but then i'd have to micromanage it, and that's just a pain in the arse! : P
... is for Adrian (or someone else in the drupal community) to have written a contest module. So, I just put some specific code after each item that says when to end the contest, you click it, and you're entered. At the time I set, the system automatically picks a winner and posts the result. So, I find out at the same time as everyone else.
I think I just suck at looking because I wanted to enter. I don't know how. *cries*
You have to click "Read More" to get the details on how to enter.
Mental wounds not healing, driving me insane, i'm goin' off the rails on a crazy train- the ozzman
Lol I think it's funny that everyone's jealous since the contest is completely random!
Hyacinthus was the first person to enter, so he was always the highest number (if sorted by date received), so if 8 people entered one, and the program picked #8, it would be him. So, after that happened like 2-3 times, I was like, this is getting strange, so I messed with the order, so sorting by name or whatever, and then it picked whatever number he was at then, too. No stopping him...
