I just hope some clarification of the word "lottery" is forthcoming.
as long as less people register for the contest than they have entry slots, we can't really be mad, right? I mean, I'd like to enter a bunch, but I recognize the inclusion and fairness of giving everyone possible a shot. if 8-10K people register, we've got enough spots to give everyone one. But maybe I'm underestimating the interest level, and as said previously it will be good to find out what it is.
contrast with finding out that your name wasn't picked from a lottery and you don't get to enter at all while others get multiple entries? - I think that would just change the uproar we experienced this year, not actually reduce it.
I guess we'll find out...
