    I think you should pick your top 10 and then run a poll on the best. No gold, but a worthy win still to come?
    I'm glad I'm not judgemental like all you smug, superficial idiots

    I do not have an account, so I shall just roll around in my pile of gold. I will lord over it like Smaug over the Dwarven Kingdom, but instead of sleeping inside it I will rub the coins on my nipples and enact a few scenes from Katie Perry's California Girls.

    Yeah maybe if we give the caption thing another go (it seemed very popular) I'll ask some of the other staff to be on a team to select the winners. I just wanted a fun fair way for everyone to win gold. I loved the responses, they were hilarious. The contests and giving gold away is something we've tried in the past but could never get the participation level. It's a work in progress which is why I keep asking for feedback

    I could use more gold for my pile.

    Meaningless. Why Rules: Limit of three entries per person? In fact, it is not necessary creativity, it is not necessary to come up with creative! Enough to leave a smiley face and randomly win a prize.
    I congratulate the winners.

    I appreciate your feedback. It seems like several others agree that we should have selected the winners based on the most creative entries. I will be sure to be more specific when creating the contests as well as take this feedback to the rest of the team for future competitions.

    How is it a contest if winners are randomly selected? That's not a contest - it is a raffle.

    What a disappointment.

    I just saw this now. Yeah, I definitely agree that it's a disappointment. I mean, I don't think my entries would've won, but I definitely think that whoever put the most effort in or whoever had the flat-out funniest post should've gotten the prize. You nailed it right on the head when you called it a raffle.

    Thank you both for your comments. Going forward I will be more specific when starting the 'contests'. We did a 'give-a-way' around Christmas but that was phrased as 12 days of giving. Either way, message received. Next caption contest, may the most creative and hilarious win!

    I knew it would be random draw just by the way the OP was worded and the fact that we each got 3 entries, and the fact that there would be 20 winners. I see nothing wrong with the way things were done (except that I wasn't one of the lucky winners). Yes, it could be more clear, but it didn't have to be.
