I noticed that for the last 5-6 weeks the runner up has been the second person to answer the question correctly. It this a new change in the way you pick, a truly amazing random anomaly or just extreem lazyness?

 

If it's an intended change you might think about rewording the part of the contest that says "Don't forget, we also draw for a runner-up prize from all remaining posts with a correct answer." That wording implies that all other correct answers have a chance at getting the runner up prize.
