Raffles and bots...

The Deadpool raffle is over and the 4 winners are drawn. And no surprise that 3 out of 4 winners are a member of this site since the start of the raffle.

IMO the site should set some additional rules for these raffles, like at least X posts and/or Y days (months/years?) old account. The way these raffles are handled and keeping track on them is just asking for bots to hop in and get a higher chance for the keys that others ('legit') forum users are not using...

    The winners were all hand selected. They were not bots. We are not going to restrict raffles to users based on post count or account age. We appreciate the feedback, but this is just not going to happen.
