You're asking for ideas for a contest to win the $1,708,798 minus transfers?

I think the contest should be "funniest bot check word combo," and the prizes should be the listed items, granted however you choose--if you weren't already planning that. Contest ends whenever you want.


1. Use of the bot check trainer ( ) to generate word combos is allowed.
2. Word combo must replace contestants' community member portraits for contest duration, for verification purposes. If portrait does not match contestant's word combo entry, contestant is disqualified and their word combo is up for grabs.
3. Only initial poster of any specific word combo counts. If someone got your bot check entry first, tough noogies.
4. Contestants must reply in this thread with their bot check word combo. For example (not my entry, BTW):

beep boop

5. Only one word combo per member is allowed. No second chances once posted here unless if someone replied with your combo first.
6. Multiple word combo posters will be disqualified and their word combos will be up for grabs.
7. No one may laugh, except for IPoop. Maybe.
8. If this contest idea is approved by IPoop, it will commence once IPoop says here the magic words "THERE WAS A FIREFIGHT!"

I hope I'm not overlooking anything important.

Simple, fair, and you can set up multiple prizes.

Okay, I checked the forum for examples of raffles and they're really efficient and cool. I'm totally up for a raffle!

I'm up for a raffle too

The raffle and botcheck idea both seem good to me.

I will try and get on in a few hours time and sort it out.

Gary Oak August 17 2014 8:43 PM EDT

Am down for a raffle! Kinda have a problem with the botcheck idea as some people have been taking screen shots of funny botchecks for a long time, and the winner would probably be a such player. Good old Raffles are fair and easy.

Agreed with Gary.
