    This is a poll (and hopefully not spam) to ask gbatempers whether Rowan should be given the last R4i or not AS he finished the contest first in the very first hours

    We hope this will make the gbatemp decision easier

    Well true the prizes would be given based on a draw but special recognition is to be given to certain great individuals as above

    Redraw would be more fair, but I also think that Rowan deserves to get this one, not an easy task to finish this Hunt in few hours/first!

    I voted YES.

    maybe it's just me being greedy (although, i dont see much need for an r4i so maybe not) but i'd go with a re-draw

    as was even mentioned by staff before the results of the compo were released, different people are in different timezones so certain people completing the compo first isn't exactly fair to determine a winner anyway~

    That is true, however, completing the whole Hunt in just two hours is quite an achievement!

    who's to say another didn't complete it within minutes of seeing it when they woke up in their respective timezone?
    (i know i didn't, i was stuck on the tempcast bit for quite a while [​IMG])

    Because it's impossible to complete it within minutes [​IMG]

    If you have a guide in front of you, it would take up to hour just to go trough all the steps.

    Rowan should get it.
    He must be a genius to finish that fast

    I have to vote yes.

    Because:

    A) I don't really care as it's only an R4 and I never even completed the contest.

    B) He finished it much to quickly to be human, if we don't give it to him he may become enraged and destroy us.

    Redraw.
    There's the time-zone issue. Person x could still have been sleeping while Rowan was solving the clues. If Person x was awake when Tempmas started, they could have finished before Rowan.
