Congratulations RJones for your win.

However, I'd like to add my 2 cents - I DO agree that sweeps should have more restrictions - and target mostly ACTIVE members who take part in the community, determined by number of posts and % of activity - Not necessarily by the amount of posts, but by the activity level - otherwise you can have just about anybody from the outside who registers just to enter sweeps and never show up. Just my 2 cents 1/2. :)
Like you said in your first comment "It's all a question of luck" If you stand by both comments you're contradicting yourself. How is it any different if an individual plays lotto649 every week vs someone that just happens to pick up a ticket randomly and wins, are you going to argue the same point?

Just my 2 cents,
