Planned server downtime 4.8.2016

We will perform some server upgrades that will require us to bring our data center offline for roughly 2-3 hours this Thursday, August 4th, from 5am (London Time, see it in your timezone).

We will move to fast SSD equipped servers (plus a bunch more RAM) to handle our increasing traffic and number of users.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, however it’s necessary for the smooth migration.

Recent Updates v5.0

  • We have developed a new useful tool for detecting and removing duplicate entries. You can find it in the List/edit Entries section.
  • Widget improvements – you can see the widget preview during the setup.
  • Several minor UX improvements and fixes


Christmas Opening Hours, including Help Desk will have limited opening hours over the Christmas and New Year period.

Thursday 24th December – CLOSED
Friday 25th December – CLOSED

Sunday 27th December – CLOSED

Please feel free to contact us as you normally would during these times and we’ll get back to you as soon as possible once we’re open.


New version is here

We have launched another system release. Here is the list of the most important changes:

  • New collecting widget added – you can paste the widget to your website so people submit their entries directly into RandomPicker.
  • Asynchronous drawing – new drawing mode for large lists. You start the drawing and the system will conduct the drawing in the background so you don’t need to wait until it is finished. You will be notified by email about the result.
  • Data import – you can choose between Add / Replace entries
  • Data import – automatically fills a serie of numbers
  • Even more drawing transparency – a list of anonymized entries is available in the protocol so people can see the structure of the list, duplicate records or weigths
  • Protocol – responsive (mobile) layout added.
  • Protocol – french localization added
  • Many minor changes and improvements

We are listening to our users and most changes are reflecting your requests. We hope you will like it! team
