    I kept hoping that if I made multiple picks with beads I want that this would up the likelihood of getting selected as POD. Well since that really hasn’t worked – I am now resorting to blatant begging and pleading! LOL :-)

    How is the POD picked anyway – is it totally random, picked by staff, or maybe a computer program does it?

    Anita QoG Funny Chick says:

    I have no idea. Maybe, the beads they have the most of in a pick! I did notice, it usually not the most expensive!! Maybe we should ask!?!

    Kevin explained it once – I believe partly random, definitely not new beads, though.

    so Leigh – you just might have to make another pick without the new stuff.

    Well shoot – I knew it would be too good to be true – once I saw the new Green Girl I had to add that in!

    Hi Tara and Lynn!
    The daily fresh pick sale (or “pick of the day” as we call it) is based on a number of things. There are a mix of inventory, pricing, availability, and other factors. For example, we don’t often put something on sale that has all new items that were just added to the web site… that’s not fair to the people who just bought them at full price But that’s just one example. Randomness is also a factor… with so many Fresh Picks getting created, this is important because we can’t always go through all of this by hand. Finally, we don’t give preferential treatment to anyone, or exclude anyone on purpose… it’s mostly a random game.

    I hope that helps explain things

    Glad Jeanne found and posted Steve’s reply to Tara and me — I was going to try to do that and now I don’t have to! :D

    I think the secret to being selected as POD must be to choose only old, ugly, inexpensive beads, and to arrange them in a beautiful way, right? ;-) Maybe I didn’t interpret that statement of Steve’s correctly….. LOL

    I forgot to say what a great pick this is, Leigh!!! Love your choices! :D

    Funny story — I’ve only been chosen for POD twice and both were almost completely yellow picks. When it happened for the second time (just recently), I told my hubby that LB must have a whole bunch of yellow beads they want to try and unload! ROTFLOL
