How is the winner selected?
We have tried to implement a system that will not only reward the early birds, but also remain fairly simple to understand and follow. So, we'll be employing the F1 points system. For those who, are not familiar with F1: Points are awarded to drivers and teams exclusively on where they finish in a race. The winner receives 25 points, the second place finisher 18 points, with 15, 12, 10, 8, 6, 4, 2 and 1 points for positions 3 through 10. These points will then be converted to raffle tickets, put into a lucky draw, and one winner will be randomly selected; the draw will be done via an electronic random number generator tool e.g. If you are the 2nd person to post the correct answer along with a valid explanation, then 12 tickets in your name will be entered into the draw. If you are 8th, then 4 tickets in your name will be entered into the draw, if ....you get the drift. Please note that only those who post the correct answer along with a valid explanation will be eligible.
When will the winner be announced
The winner will be announced exactly a week after the question is posted. The winner will be immediately contacted via a pm, and if the winner does not respond within 7 calendar days, the prize will go to the person next in line.
Where will the weekly challenges be posted?
They will be posted in the GRE section of the forum; links to the same will be posted below.
