First Round of the Contest Series Has Ended

So the first round of the giveaway ended last night. And the winners are being notified. There was a bit of a glitch on the leaderboard this morning. The time server on our new box is really damn funky right now. The old server was on pacific time and we switched to the new server which is on eastern time. The leaderboards weren't built for anything like this. To compound that, for some reason our time server on our new set up says the current time is actually 3 hours 54 minutes ahead of eastern time. So the contest which ended at 11:59:59 PDT needed to include all buys up to 5:54:59 AM, on the new server time. Whatever the hell you call that time, I have no idea.

Josh and Eli are working on contacting the winners and getting things set up for the next contest, which should start at 11:59:59 tomorrow night. the next contest will also include a user component. Top three users with the most street credit win some cold hard cash. The payouts will be higher than the last contest, but we're still working up all the copy and such. So you'll just have to wait until tomorrow to find out the details.
