Yay. What does weighted draw mean?

It was an experimental contest Archaic tried out where, for example, contributors that used more sources scored more points.

Just a quick correction on that.

Those who've been here a while will know this already, but with the normal contributor and commentator contests we've done here, we've normally awarded 2 prizes. One is random prize, which is given to a single contributor from the previous month. Everyone who contributes a story / comments on a story is entered into that, but you only have one entry. The second prize is the weighted draw, where everyone gets an amount of entries equal to the number of stories / comments contributed by that person.

In the April & May contests (but *not* the June contest listed as a weighted draw above), we tried as an experiment just having weighted draws, but giving an additional weighting on everyone's scored based on the number of sources people used in contributions. So if you'd contributed 5 stories from 2 different sources, you'd have the same number of entries as someone who contributed 10 stories from a single source. But...that idea didn't turn out so well. It was intended to balance things a little better between our top contributors and the middle contributors, but as it turns out, our middle contributors seem to be more likely to stick to a single source than the top contributors, so it only made things even more lopsided.
