the raffle system for reddit submissions
redditraffler helps you select winners for your Reddit-based contest. When you host raffles (or giveaways, contests, sweepstakes) via Reddit submissions, you can use redditraffler to select winners for "comment-to-enter" type contests.
The idea behind redditraffler is that participants should know that the winners for your contest were chosen in a fair, random manner without any human intervention. As a contest host, you can log in with your Reddit account so that we can verify that you're the one who's generating the results.
In the spirit of fairness and transparency, the source code for this website is open-source.
How it works
redditraffler retrieves your submission's top-level comments, along with their authors, in a random order.
With the user criteria that you'll specify, such as minimum comment karma, redditraffler will choose one or more winners for you based on how many you'd like.
The results of your raffle will be saved and be available to view for as long as this website is running. An example of what a raffle results page would look like can be found here.
The usage criteria for redditraffler is simple. You'll need a Reddit submission that is public and has valid comments. For an example of what a redditraffler-compatible submission would look like, see this /r/Overwatch giveaway.
Apart from that, all you'll need is a small set of requirements that entrants need to meet in order to be eligible as a winner for your contest.
