Behind the Scenes: See how Contest Mode picks winners!

The first contest was a huge success, with 38 entries! Since this is the first giveaway I wanted to do a little recording to show off how the contest works from behind the scenes. Congratulations to all of the winners! Everyone else will have a lot of other opportunities to win, because I will be bugging devs for more codes!

Video Description:

Several updates are rolling out onto discchord.com, and the first of those is a new contest mode. I'm super proud of how this works, so I wanted to record how it looks on my end when I push the button!

Lots more contests coming in the future, so check the site often!

Very cool Tim. I won a code but have Audulus already. PM me on my Facebook page if you'd like my code.
Dang Tim, there's a whole ton of work you've done that most of us would normally never know about; so thanks a lot for showing a glimpse of the behind the scene workings of your wonderful site!

Congrats to all of the winners!
Code has now been taken. Cheers Steve
@Toz Bourne: LOL, yes! A lot of effort goes into the behind the scenes features, and that can be frustrating at times. Which is why I've made such a big deal about this contest! For the last 2 months most of my coding has been drudgery; speed optimizations, fixing bugs, and patching possible bugs that no one will ever notice. Now here is something everyone can see and benefit from!
So cool yo!

Hehe I won in the second round! Thanks Tim and that kind person that already owned Audulus!

That is an awesome feature. I've never seen anything like this on any other website. Very cool!

Perhaps in the future if there is a similar contest, there could be a little filter where a person who is not interested in the prize, but still wants to comment, could type something or tick a box so that they'd be skipped in the drawing.
Winner, winner, chicken dinner!
