Winners of Business Cards - leading image.

Last week, and Six Revisions hosted a business cards giveaway. Over 350 participants vied to get one out of the 10 sets of business cards. Today, I’m happy to announce the 10 winners of this contest.

Though the winners were selected at random, I still read each of your comments; some were very funny, while others were simply heart-breaking.

Without further ado…

Selection Method

Selection Method - screen shot.

The process of selection involved a fairly simple SQL query to select 10 random comments from the post.

For those familiar with SQL syntax, here’s the query if you wish to perform the same type of random selection of comments on WordPress.

SELECT comment_ID, comment_author, comment_author_email,  comment_author_url
FROM comments
WHERE comment_post_ID = 358

This query selects the comment’s unique ID, the commentor’s name, email address, and URL (if they have one) from the WordPress comments table.

We limit the query only to the post (in this case, it was post #358) or else it will select from any posts.

Finally, we select by random using ORDER BY RAND() and limiting it to only 10 records.
