Random.org – there are better solutions

I see from time to time people using random.org web site, filming sweepstakes. The solution is rather poor – you could film as many sweepstakes as you want, until you get a valid number.

The alternative? Create a list of persons, make it public, provide it to the web site, and let the web site announce it after a few days.

So, the mechanism is like this:

  • 100 people join your contest.
  • December 10 the contest ends.
  • December 10 – you put the list on a web site, public.
  • December 12 – the winner is extracted from the list and you announce it.

Much more difficult to arrange something, in this case.

Better solutions – 1, 2.
