Yea, Everytime you deposit experience you get entered into the contest.
I believe its a draw, but could be wrong.

I'm assuming James wrote a script of some sort that randomly picks a user.

I could see Tom writing everyone's name on a piece of paper and drawing them from a hat like Wade did. Tom would have to invest in a pretty big hat to put a few thousand names in. :)


I could surely die

http://www.newgrounds.com/contest.html
Taken from the contest page:

We will attempt to accomodate international winners, but reserve the right to decline a winner based on their location. We will be utilizing Amazon (.com, .co.uk, .ca, etc.) to order and deliver the prizes. If Amazon does not serve your corner of the globe, you will be deemed ineligible. You don't need an Amazon account to receive the prize.

I read a few posts that, basically, were asking already answered questions.

Summary: If Tom can pay the NG bill every month, he can afford to buy a game console or 3 games off of Amazon and ship them off to the winner.
It is a random script, as stated in the first post.
Your odds are from 1 to 30 out of several thousand.
It is extreme luck.
Hats off to Jewls, who won, and is a chick.
We can always hope she's not a gamer and ask to give the prize to someone else ^^ I mean, I'm sure plenty of people are depositing experience without wanting to partake in the contest.

Wait....what if Jewls doesn't come online, or "accept" her prize because she never reads the email sent to her.
Will another person be drawn, or just say no one wins?

that's a possibility, the simplest/more logical reason, so probably the correct one.
Ever since he's become an admin, this site has slowly and slowly getting better everyday.
he's fixed so many problems. No more outwar reviews, fixit problem is prevented, and so many others.

I could see Tom writing everyone's name on a piece of paper and drawing them from a hat like Wade did.

I'll just assume thats typo and replace the word "could" with "couldn't".

fixit is the guy who's number 1 Blam/Protector, but basically what he did was created some sort of script which automatically voted on every Under Judgment based on the Flash Authors batting average.

I thought jesuscyborg made that program. Fixit may have used it, but I think it's jesuscyborg who made it.

It could be probably because i don't think a person of 20 years old wanna play with a console.

Will another person be drawn, or just say no one wins?

If she dosen't want his prize another person have to be the winner...or if she dosen't want her prize the Console maybe can come with the August Prize...Hey...That would be cool.
