Would be nice to also have a tool to make group (e.g. 3 persons per group) quickly.

be able to change the background color

It would be great to have an integrated option where we can select one of several colors for the background to match whatever we need it to. I love this selector but the yellow is killing my eyes and intensifies my bad migraines.

Raffle based on the amount of Tickets

So, I have the folow question... I'm doing a raffle and many users have multiple tickets and for each ticker I'll repeat their username to ensure he have more chances to win... Is there a limit of how many times I can add the same username?

Avoid a name to be selected again when sorted once

When making several runs, an already picked name should't be selectable again.

Be able to replace the camel logo at the top of the page with our own logo. Or just remove it completely.

As a hosted service, I suppose any logo change would affect all users. So maybe just having no logo would be better. I don't quite understand the significance of the camel..

Please! Adjust page so it can be used on smartphones

This is crucial - it is not possible to scroll to the bottom of the page to properly see og remove student names on a smartphone. Please fix! - Very cool tool!

I LOVE this application! As a teacher, I use it all the time with my students. However, I am unable to get the URL and embed codes to work :(

I began using the Random Name Selector a few weeks ago. A colleague of my loved it and wanted to set up her classes as well. Unfortunately we are unable to save the URL/embed code.

In IE9, the names list does not fully show.

In IE9 when I click on "Change Names", the top three lines are covered by the "Go!" button.

Accent marks donĀ“t show on a saved url

I am a Spanish teacher and use this site to randomly choose questions in Spanish. When I save the url, accent marks and special punctuation come back as code - unreadable. Could this be fixed so I can save sets without re-typing for each class?
