Good morning...
I participated in the JavaRanch book promo, and would like to know how people win the free books... Is it up to the author to decide? Is it a person with the most posts (during the promo)? Or is it just picked randomly? In addition, where do people go (on this web site to see if they actually won?)

Here are the rules for the book promotions.
Basically, out of all the on-topic posts in the relevant forum during the promotion, by registered members with valid display names, four posts are randomly selected as winners. The winners are then announced by a post in that forum.

I post the list of winners in the forum having the promotion on Friday around 7pm server time. The winners are also listed at the link Jessica mentioned.
Winners must get back to me with their snail mail addresses within 30 days or they don't get a book.

Being a double book promo week, you have got the winners/book switched around.

Whoops! Thanks, I fixed it.
Hopefully I will send the correct lists to the publishers!
