Re: Jem Raffle Poll - Win A Jem


There were a couple of amendments that still need to be made on the rules. Please check back before buying your chance.

Re: Jem Raffle Poll - Win A Jem


I'm new to this whole thread about the JEM givaway. How exactly are you going to keep people from buying more than one entry? I mean, if it's $20 to enter and your chances of winning are 1/125 then what's to stop someone who could actually afford it from buying like 10 entries? I mean, I could probably afford 20 bucks but what's the point if someone else is going to buy like 20 votes and thus greatly increasing their individual chances to win?

Regards

André

Don't set your alarm yet. (but when you DO need to, use this http://www.worldtimezone.com/ )

Last night Glen had said something like "1am EST", but that's too late for me...I'd like to be here and awake for the opening flood. If we could do 9 or 10pm EST that'd be great. It would give me a couple of hours to get entries in and help answer questions if necessary.

Glen & I have been back 'n forth about letting you guys pick your number, rather than assigning it. I think it'll accelerate ticket sales if you can pick (subject to availability, of course).

My plan:
Send me your entry fee with 3 number choices.
If none of those numbers are available, you get assigned one.
If you have no preference I'll just assign at random

What I want to avoid is:
A) People saying 'i didn't get 777, so i want my money back' and
B) People saying 'could i change my number? I don't like the one i got'.

Neither of those things can happen here.

Is everyone on board with this or should we just build up from 000?

~K

PS: There is a 'no bitching' stipulation implied with every entry

Re: Jem Raffle Poll - Win A Jem


I think it should be random to prevent "MFer!! you got my number!!" etc.

I'm no stranger to draws and you can guarantee it will happen.

Re: Jem Raffle Poll - Win A Jem


Oh yeah and people might want the same number each and every time if they can choose their own which might not be possible, hence, more bitching.

Re: Jem Raffle Poll - Win A Jem


So people get assigned numbers after they pay the entry fee? How exactly is the winning number chosen?

Re: Jem Raffle Poll - Win A Jem


Thanks Kenny ref. the times.

About choosing the numbers.

Is it possible to see a list of available numbers that we can choose from?

This might save you a bit of a headache with people asking for the same numbers etc. Just a thought though....not sure if its possible to keep a list constantly updated....or if it is even practical.

To be honest I prefer a lucky dip scenario. That'll save any messing about.
