I've noticed that many people have gone to the lottery system when picking up pins. For example, you sign up for pickups and then winners are randomly selected from the list to purchase the pins. I am just wondering why this is done instead of going in order of who signed up first. Please understand that I am not at all bitter or trying to complain, I am just trying to understand. Full disclosure: I have been first on a pickup list more than once and because of the lottery system (it is a documented fact that I am not lucky) have not been able to purchase pins I had hoped for. I am not upset about it, pickup people are great and doing it their way which I respect. I just am unsure how a lottery system is more "fair" than, "hey, cawcawrawr really, really wanted that pin and rushed to be first on the list, let's go in order". Please help me understand.
