So when you have a contest how do you come up with the winner? Do you use some kind of random generator? Especially when people are allowed to do things for extra entries.

What are your methods?

I use randomizer.org or random.org - both work fine. I used randomizer more only because it's easier to use if you have more than one giveaway - you can set it up in sets and then have your number of winners.
Thanks. I looked at those sites and found them confusing though lol
The easiest way I have found is it use random.org and use the list randomizer. It is under fun & free. When do my entries, I have a doc. with all the names on them, then I just copy/paste everything into the randomizer, and it gives me a name or names if there are multiple winners. Hope that helps.
I think there are some parts that require you to pay a fee. But I always use the free area.
I have numbered the entries, and then when it comes time to announce a winner, I ask my dear hubby to pick a number!

Simple and he's cheap! (grin!)
I used to physically write names on paper and pull a name out of a bowl. Now I use random.org.
I use random.org. See the # of posts you have. If you have 23, put 1 in the min and 23 in the max. The random # will pop up.
i type them up into an excel spread sheet with the e-mail addresses across from them. then i print them out, cut them up, and pick them out of a hat or somethin.
