You may have seen our Happy Holidroid contest that was posted only a few hours ago where the challenge had you guys searching for a hidden image, located in a random post. To us, here at Phandroid, the rules seemed pretty cut and dry but like most things in life — they were anything but. We began to notice more than a few comments confused as to who the actual winner was based on the answers that were given. Here’s our dilemma:
- Even though it wasn’t stated in the rules for the day that he couldn’t, Superchunk posted the entire article. The issue? Well, it’s very easy for someone to make a script to cheat (not saying he did – in fact, we’re almost positive he didn’t) and it’s one of the reasons why we had the rules we did to begin with.
- Libepego posted what was asked in the rules but he also included a little “extra” (like Superchunk) by including the image. Something that also wasn’t asked for.
- Vithi posted exactly what was asked for in the rules — nothing more, nothing less.
Another issue — if including “too much” information is considered acceptable, what happens when a Christmas miracle takes place where both Superchunk and Libepego answered at the exact same time? Sounds crazy, I know but it’s true. They actually tied.
Because we, at Phandroid, want to be as fair as humanly possible, we’re actually going to place the final ruling in your hands — acting as a jury of their peers. Superchunk, Libepego and Vithi’s ultimate fate will be decided by you. Who soever has received the most votes by 9:00AM (ET) tomorrow morning will be declared our official winner and gets to have their wildest Android dreams come true. Because this was a such a close contest, the other two runner ups will each get a $25 Amazon gift certificate.
So, tell us Phandroids, who do you think was the true winner for today’s Happy Holidroid contest?
