Nikon D3200 Giveaway Winner

Today we are announcing the lucky winner of the Nikon D3200 Giveaway that we hosted all of last month. We had an incredible number of entries – a whopping 1648 candidates, but unfortunately, only one of them gets to win the camera. I use a random number generator by for these kinds of giveaways, so it picks one number for me between 1 and the total number of entries (1648 in this case).

So after putting the numbers and hitting the “Generate” button, it gave me … (drums rolling):

The number 824! After pulling the comment #824 in the giveaway and matching the name against our Facebook Fans (confirming the winner is in fact our Facebook fan), I am happy to announce that the winner is Joy Yagit, with Joy Yagit Photography:

    It pinches to not have won, but it feels very good to imagine how you must be feeling. :)

    Lucky winner. Notice that the random number is 824 exactly one-half of 1648, the total number of entries.

    Oh, I thought the winner won’t be raffled, instead, mansurovs will choose depending on what they’ve answered. anyway, Congrats to the winner!

      I thought so too. I just realized he will have a hard time reading all those 1648 comments. Congrats to the winner though. Very lucky!

    I was not in the competition…but I presume you checked all the 823 comments before too. Because, if you actually pulled number 824, there might be other comments before to pull too… Or?

    • June 6, 2012 at 1:00 pm

      Why would I pull the comments at all? I ran a random number generator and put 1 to 1648 as the range. It picked a random number for me, which happened to be 824.

    Well, already found the flaw on the very first comment!
    Comment 488 and 535 should also be pulled if you actually pulled 824. Am sure that there are more comments to pull.
    Perhaps a good idea to check that next time…

    • June 6, 2012 at 1:03 pm

      Again, it doesn’t matter as far as I am concerned. If someone posted an irrelevant comment and they ended up being chosen, I would have filtered them out while picking the winner. If the person who won did not participate on the Facebook side, I would have filtered him/her out as well. But I can only do this on the winner – I don’t have the time to go through thousands of participants…

        Ok, fair enough. It’s still random. And I see the trouble of filtering only comments. As long it’s not too many extra comments it doesn’t matter…

    Hmmm I wish if I could join this before :/ But it’s too late. I really really wish to have a DSLR camera, but since I’m too ‘small’ (14 y/o) my father didn’t allow me to have it. But for sure, I really love photography; but I don’t have camera >.< Anyway, congrate to the winner :)
