    Should $1 Daily Competition Should Upper limit of number of times a person can win in a week ?

    Lets argue on this and if we all agree we can have this in place.

    Good question.
    I think we shouldn't have an upper limit. Since we really don't know when she (priya) will be posting her question, i think everyone has a fair chance to win. Moreover we have enough people trying up for it.

    Also even if someone is winning straight 7/7 someone might come and break his/her winning streak, it gives a challenge to the winner and others, its not the $ but that winning streak that one wanna make, be it saswat or anyone.

    Its like saying when australia was on a winning streak, winning every match, and banning them from winning the next match.

    Let it be a challenge, someone winning all the time also has a threat that someone will come and break his/her record. It's not that easy to win all the time.

    Thats where the fun. Thats what competition is all about. :)

    No. I dont decide it. You opted for the upper limit but if that is not acceptable I would not mind changing it once again.

    No, I didn't mean that I want to revert the change.
    (I have yet not voted on the pole, shabbir)

    I just wanted to say that mayjune's writing style is quite convincing.

    @saswat
    Thanks saswat. :D

    I really feel let there be a real competition .. if you have it, win all the 1$ competitions, i can bet it will be really tough.

    I would say do the reverse, if anyone "DOES" win all 7/7 in a week, he/she gets and added bonus of some sort, extra prize, or some kinda tag for them....
    Then you see the competition... People will do anything to win all of them....

    Be it in real life or Virtual life, everyone wants to win, and we should only encourage people to...

    I think, it is better to have this upper limit.
    mayjune's explanation is intersting. But am sure, either saswt or naimish will get that tag most of the weeks !!
