It was a complete toss up between 2nd and 3rd for me, so I flipped a coin..... Sorry Kimo! It was so tough between the 3 I picked. Maybe next time we will do more than 3 places as the entries certainly call for it. I don't think I saw a bad pic in the bunch! You all do some excellent work!

:hehe:Thanks for your vote, but I'm not worried about wining anything. I wanted to post a close up of the Santa Fe ES44 and this contest just happened to start. Not to brag but I have 32 of JR's payware locos so even if I won 1 it would be a hard decision. It was all for fun:wave:

Not to worry. This is certainly not the last contest or giveaway we are going to do. Next time can be something else maybe, doesn't have to be a screenshot contest as not everyone is good at taking screenshots. All the screenshots I take come out like crap, so we will do something different next time around.

May I ask what happens with ties in 2nd or 3rd place?

Steveo241
February 27th, 2011, 02:03 PM
A first place tie will probably go to Scratchy, as he had the lead the longest in the competition. 3830 would get second. I would do a tiebreaker but that would be dragging this on for longer than needed.

Congrats to the winners, enjoy your prezzies :) Awesome support from JR too, definately the best in the biz :)

Not complaining here, but I don't understand how you can say someone was in the lead longer? If that's the case then why bother having a time limit for voting? People could have voted for someone earlier but not bothered posting until the last minute. Someone could have voted at the last minute putting that person in front, but in reality the person might not have had the lead the longest, so using it as the format for a tiebreaker isn't exactly 'fair'.

Again, no hard feelings or anything, just my $0.2 on the issue and wanting it clarified ;)

Tom :)

I'll solve that. We will do a tie for first with both winners getting first place prizes. 2nd Place will get the regular 2nd place prize as will 3rd. So whoever was technically in 4th place will now be in 3rd. How does that sit with you guys, seems fair from here.... ;)

I didn't think my method was the best to go with, it was convenient and seemed logical. lesley, I understand your position on the decision, and I wholeheartedly agree. I determined it by who had the most votes during the competition. 3830 was in the lead for more of the time than you, but it did come out as a tie, so Mike, again, has shown his signature generosity. Sorry for any confusion, and congrats to our winners.

That's alright, was just wondering how it was worked out is all. Although a tiebreaker would take more time it may be worth it for future competitions. Was a rare occurrence really though to get a tie for first and second, shows how close the competition was I guess.


I'll solve that. We will do a tie for first with both winners getting first place prizes. 2nd Place will get the regular 2nd place prize as will 3rd. So whoever was technically in 4th place will now be in 3rd. How does that sit with you guys, seems fair from here.... ;)

Cheers Mike, your a very generous person mate :) I personally don't mind if I don't win anything, I've already got my fair share of JR stuff and would rather let someone like Stevie who hasn't got any at all have the prize :)

Tom :)
