In contest for Weekly Featured Image of September 5th, two top entries were tied with equal upvote counts (when including late votes). Given the number of quality of images in last weeks, I suspect some week we might run into a tie again.
Currently, the rules of contest say nothing on handling ties. From chat transcript, it seems that in this case, winning image was chosen randomly, not disclosing what was "randomness" based on - a coin-flip, random number generator, or personal preference?
Since the image should be chosen by community, not by randomness, perhaps we should have a rule on how to resolve ties in case two or more images have the same number of upvotes at voting deadline.
What rule would be fair and feasible to check against?
