And now, the end is near.... (in Contests)


j'bob September 15 2008 9:25 AM EDT

So I'll do it my way. Well, actually it's more the way that made things so exciting when I first got here. I was lucky enough to walk (back) in when it seemed like there were quite a few lotteries going on. And I was even lucky enough to win a few things. Anyway, I've gotten my fair shave of generosity from this place and I'd like to give back.
IT'S LOTTERY TIME.

This is how it will work. I'm going to start putting together my list of things to win. And yes, I'm giving away everything.
Rules:
1) Two entries max per person.
2) 50k to The Crow per entry
3) Your number will be assigned by your post. If you're the first poster then you have ticket #1. If you buy 2 entries as the first poster then you have tickets 1 and 2. Then the next poster starts with ticket #3. If you would like to spread out your ticket numbers, simply buy your 2 tickets separately with other posters in between. PLEASE make this easy on me. You must post your payment record in the corresponding post.
4) I'll sell tickets for a few days and I'll note when the ticket office is closed.
5)Prizes will be awarded in the following manner. I will pick one of my items out of a hat (literally, well a piece of paper with the item name on it) and use randomizer.org to assign it a number. The person with that ticket wins that item. That winning ticket will then be removed from future drawings. You could possibly win with both your tickets, but each ticket may only win once.
5) The money generated will be used in part for transfer fees. What ever money I have left over will be the final prize with 10% donated to tourney prizes.

And for fun, you'll have to just stay tuned once the ticket office is closed as I'll give away the prizes in a spread out and random, though timely, manner.

PLEASE KEEP THIS THREAD FOR LOTTERY ENTRIES ONLY.

Ready..... GO!

And just for the disclaimers... I reserve all my rights and such and this and that and what not and there may be a few items that I ACTUALLY GIVE AWAY prior to the end of this lottery but there will be plenty of good stuff to go around. Trust me.

AoL +8
AoF +11
Corn +3
SoC +15
SC +23
MCM +36

and no, that's NOT all the good stuff, there's more! Including a bunch of (non lesser) Tats/Runes. I've got about 70 items to give out (including non rare stuff but depending on how ticket sales go I may just sell the cheaper stuff to the store) Who knows.

So come one come all and get your tickets here!

This is just a list of what was won and a few things that were just given out. Cause apparently a few people didn't know they had won anything. The door prizes I just started randomly handing out to people who hadn't won. If I had more time and a greater attention span I would have tried harder to see that everyone got something. I do appreciate all the thanks and such. Obviously I could have hosted (or paid someone more than likely to do it for me) a big sale and turned it into USD. But that's not why I started playing this game and as I said before, this was just a reflection of what I saw when I was new.
Thanks again to the people (many too many to actually mention) who made this such a WONDERFUL obsession! Click click click, plan plan plan would have gotten old real fast if it weren't for the community that truly holds this place together. Jon, you did a great job creating a great game, but your real success is in the people you've drawn to it and held hostage (even those who have slipped away eventually) day after day, change after change. I'll be around, likely a bit less often as time passes, but I won't be playing again any time soon. (Obviously!) I'm sure I won't be able to resist the urge to pop in from time to time and remind all of you (and to tell the new folks) the great importance of the cake.

And if you ever need to find me, I'll be "hanging out by the state line, turning holy water into wine".

(couldn't head off without a song reference)

I'm really sad you're leaving us. And thank you for the gift, by the way! It's already found a new, more needy home ^_^

I had better see you in chat from time to time...or no more cake. E-v-e-r! ;p
