I occasionally write WordPress plugins when I can’t find an existing plugin that does what I need it to do. If you use a plugin I created, you can show your thanks by making a PayPal donation to firstname.lastname@example.org
This plugin randomly selects a winner or winners from the comments of a giveaway post. You can also disqualify people who’ve entered more than once (determined by email), or reduce their entries to only one. The plugin uses MySQL’s random function RAND() to randomly select the winners directly from the database.
