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?

Re: Jem Raffle Poll - Win A Jem

Regards

André

Just read the post by Kenny and saw what I was asking for . So nevermind.

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.
