Hi All,

@Flashinglight asked me for some help in finding an easier way for everyone to submit their prize preferences this year. Last year everyone just sent a list of prize numbers which then had to be manually collated into a spreadsheet. Also I was a little fiddly for everyone to compile their lists and we did have a few duplicates if I remember rightly.

So I have come up with an online form which will automatically capture the entries into spreadsheet which I can then work with to make some lists (and interesting stats) for @Flashinglight

We now have a slightly different and hopefully more straightforward approach. Instead of rankling each prize in exact order, you rank it between 0 and 10.

0 meaning you are not interested in that prize. Or if you can prefer you can just not bother rating it and only rate the prizes you are interested in.

10 then being the prize(s) you are most interested in, and 1 being the least interested in.

You can use the rating system how you want. If for example there is one prize you want above anything else (like a markee like), then just rate one thing as a 10. Then you can rank a few things at 9, all the way down to 1. Or you could rate your top 9 in an exact order and everything else rated 10 meaning you are interested. Any prizes ranked the same, will be randomly allocated to you.

Hopefully this will be straightforward and self-explanatory. Would some of you mind having a look and submitting a test entry so we’ve got some data to work with for when the real prize list is ready.

Note this is last years prize list, which might give you inspiration for this year.

Thanks.
