edited June 2019 in Announcements

Hi everyone, it is the time for provider poll again! A chance for providers to get the "Top Provider" tag and for the members to get free prizes :)

This year, Chris from ChicagoVPS is generous enough to sponsor 50 free 1GB RAM VPS for a year!

Try not to discuss in this thread so it makes our life easier when counting votes. (We will move the non-votes comments into another thread)

  • IDs are used by lottery selection algorithm (see below)
  • Providers can still add prizes by PM me the details
  • Special thanks to the mods on helping to count the votes :)

To ensure the fairness of the lottery, this is the hash of the MAGIC_SEED that will be used for selection: 2b63666a41267dfde504ccd62658172255d5987a322b937234a15c8f8adda61a (SHA256)

const seedrandom = require('seedrandom');

// Those values are just an example
const MAGIC_SEED = 'Seed';
const ALL_USERS = ['FAT32', 'doghouch', 'hawc', 'netomx', 'JackH', 'hzr', 'trewq', 'PieHasBeenEaten', 'teamacc'];
const PRIZE_COUNT = 5;

// Find winners
const rng = seedrandom(MAGIC_SEED + '_' + ALL_USERS.length + '_' + PRIZE_COUNT);
let output = ALL_USERS.map((user) => ({ username: user, rand: rng() }));
output.sort((a, b) => a.rand - b.rand);
output = output.slice(0, PRIZE_COUNT);
output = output.map((selected) => selected.username);

// Output
console.log(output);

"Everyone you meet is fighting a battle you know nothing about. Be kind. Always."
