    I hope numbering my answer doesn't disqualify my entry.

    No, it makes your answer super-clear. Thank you!

    i don't wanna sound ungrateful for a chance to win free diamonds but it seems like an insult to our intelligence as adults. maybe it's just a way of letting us know phoenix artifacts are coming. but i'd rather see a guessing game than a random drawing. i'd rather see questions that could be somewhat interesting, like how many players logged in during a week or how many levels of wonders were upgraded or how many people were foolish enough to get to level 5 of the spire. just kidding there about being foolish but most of us seem to agree that costs are too high for the spire at this point. the last contest wasn't bad at all, by the way.

    Didn't contests in the past hide entries until the contest was over?

    'Variety is the spice of life' as the saying goes. It's good to have different competitions- some easier while others are harder; some judged on merit while others are picked randomly.
    They were- this time it is different. :)

    Easy peasy ;) Basically a "leave your name to enter"- contest. Nice for a change! Thanks @Dizzy Lizzie :)

    I'd prefer if competitions had a meaning rather than just being a lottery. Something where a winner can be judged... then I'd get competitive.

    Hi @Dizzy Lizzie I see this competition as a copy/paste the previous answer lotto for 5x 300 diamonds. Don't get me wrong, I do understand that some competitions have to be a lotto but still see many wrong answers.

    I am very thankful for your efforts to boost forum activity so this type of competition is nice on occasion.

    I like the brain teasers, but then again we know "cheating" happens there.

    In future I would like to see more where you have to find clues on the forum, or wiki or even in the game itself.

    Thank you again for all your efforts though, they are greatly appreciated by me. :)

    Hey, I'm game for any competition that comes along....but what do you do about people that have entered more than once, would seem unfair if that's allowed

    Yes that would be unfair. Every potential winner is checked to make sure there is only one entry and anyone with multiples are disqualified. The rules state this and we make sure the winners have only entered once.

    I excitedly entered the first one (or the first one I saw) which asked us to post a screen shot of the best looking new builds of event prizes from the last event. Then it turned out that the screenshot didn't matter. It was just a diamond lotto. I haven't paid that much attention to them since.

    Why not just have a weekly diamond lottery instead? Sorry, I'm being a party pooper. OK, at least have something that is difficult to get right. Like someone suggested a "guess the number of sweets in the jar" type question would be more engaging.

    Edit: Where's my edit button?

    I was going to add - I expect they would need some sort of gambling licence to just make it a straight lottery.

    Spot the ball, pick a number anything that adds more than copy paste.

    Use Inno stats and ask a question like "How many new players joined EN1 in the last 7 days (give dates) or how many players entered a new chapter this week, etc then everyone has a fair chance and not a copy/paste or a fellowship with 25 correct answers.
    I liked the maths one and got the wrong answer, but this one may as well have been join the forum for a chance to win 300 diamonds, with the exception of a few entries. (I do think they misunderstood) and could be new accounts made to throw off others.
    Yes I think the worst but know every trick in the book, modding for the worlds biggest free game site for 10 years.

    @m4rt1n @Pauly7 Every competition is different, some are easier, some much harder. Some need knowledge, some need skill, some need RNG luck while others need a combination of all three. I wonder who will be able to complete the next one?
