Feature Requests (2 posts)

    I hope this is the right place to request new features.

    My process for picking a winner currently looks like this:
    1. Close comments
    2. Use random.org to get a random number
    3. Scroll to find that comment
    4. Verify the comment is valid.
    5. Repeat 2-4 for each winner I need
    6. Email winners
    7. Announce winners in a new post
    8. Wait 3 days and if winner hasn't responded, select a new winner by repeating step 2-6.

    This plugin could simplify the process to:
    1. Use plugin to close comments (DONE)
    2. Use plugin to select random winner (DONE)
    3. Use plugin to verify (Confirm or Reject) (DONE)
    4. Use plugin to email winner (config page w/ email template) (ADD)
    5. Announce winners in a new post (plugin could help by generating a copy/paste section with winner(s) name, url and comment) (ADD)
    6. Use plugin to select new winner, if needed. (ADD/MODIFY)

    Just a few things I thought would make the plugin even better and more streamlined. And the requests seem like minor tweaks except for email one.

    Does the code developer still read these?

    If so, I thought it might be even better to simply highlight (maybe a css style) the winner in the comments section of the contest post.
