2015-01-15 - Raffle Status

Recommended Posts

You never had to tell people that you won. I just think it'd be easier not to, right?

When something good happens, most people will want to share it with others. Nothing wrong with that and you shouldn't get harrassed for it.

 

Anyway, congrats to all winners. I hope next year I will be one of you! lol

I'm just gonna join the line of people who are sad that they didn't win anything.... *Sigh*

I won a Bronze Tinsel, and I'm still not quite believing it LOL I was a bit hesitant about telling about my win in this thread, but I have to say, people have respected my request for no PM's for trading, and I've only received two very sweet congratulation messages smile.gif (I hope I haven't jinxed that now, though ohmy.gifbiggrin.gif )

 

I truly wish more could win, so there wouldn't be such a stressful (for all) rush to get 2nd generation Prize Dragons. So far I've only collected one of each prize dragons and have never actually noticed the level of generation before now. I just wanted them for the beautiful sprites and never in my life had I thought I would be sitting here, thinking about possible lineages and breeding mates. I've only helped out friends with their breeding projects, and otherwise just collected the dragons I thought were pretty, through the cave and the abandoned page. I guess that'll change a little now laugh.gif

 

LOL the world is a funny place some times.

 

Congrats to all the other winners!

 

Personally, I think the prices will go down a little for Tinsels and Shimmers of all generations, since the pool of CB's has doubled(? I'm not sure) in one go. So there's still hope, I think, of getting them without having to pay too much. I hope for that at least!

Yeah but you get outed anyway the first time you trade anyway. So why not tell everyone? biggrin.gif

I hadn't really been paying attention to the raffle stuff this year since I usually end up disappointed, but then I checked my email and... I won a 3rd place prize! ohmy.gif Definitely excited, was a big surprise! c:

 

I'd really prefer not to have my inbox blow up with messages, but... it probably will since I mentioned winning something in here. sleep.gif

Grats on the win and also your icon is precious. Luluuuuuu xd.png <3

"I'm trading this for a ... friend ... the last trade was for a friend, too ... and they let me keep the trade ... and ..."

 

Heh. Yeah smile.gif

 

Edit: I'm sure there are sneaky ways to do it. I am apparently incapable of even thinking of these methods.

I see more winners coming forward, so I'd like to say Congratulations! again. I'm so glad to see this year's raffle thread has been almost entirely positive, and that winners' guidelines for their prizes are being respected. It's so much more positive this year than last.

I was afraid all the winners would go into hiding until after they got their eggs at the very least, scared by the prospect of all the 2G requests with which you'll inevitably be inundated. It makes me happy to see so many of you posting here so that I can be properly happy for you. Congratulations! smile.gif

Yeah I thought of saying that because I am friends with myself. tongue.gif

 

I figured people would eventually get suspicious and I don't really like being sneaky.

i'm glad there doesn't seem to be too much issue with harassment this year.

 

i definitely always try to be respectful of winners, even if it is a tiny bit hard sometimes...xd.png a good rule of thumb is only contact them if they say they are accepting pms and always be polite and don't guilt trip them or beg. pathetic only works for Oliver Twist or other cute literary orphans.

 

though i'm currently only looking for gold and bronze 2nd gen tinsels...which makes it kinda weird when i see people say "i won a shimmer!" and it's like, nope, i don't need to bug you, i don't need anymore shimmers. xd.png it's a very odd feeling.

I've not been spammed with PMs, even in the minutes it took me to update my sig. Mostly people have poked me on the IRC to send grats and that's about it.

I have a quick question that hopefully some of the winners can answer. I got two identical emails both saying that there had been problems with the prize acceptance page, to follow the link, etc, etc. (but no initial email confirmation mentioning two weeks to accept the prize or anything like that).

 

I was able to enter a custom code, but I never saw any picture of a dragon on that page, even after letting it sit for several minutes. The raffle link says my choices have been saved but still no pic/indication which breed/dragon.

 

Soooo, I think I'm missing an email and I don't know what I won, but maybe (hopefully!!!) something? xd.png

 

Is there any other way to check? Should I be able to see which breed/dragon I won on the raffle page if I had actually won one?

If you've already submitted then no, you won't see a picture or anything indicating which breed/colour. Something must have gone wrong initially with the image, so I'd say yes, you have definitely won (congrats!) but you're gonna have to wait for the egg to know WHAT you've won

Well, no, I didn't have to. I chose to. I wanted to, because I was excited and by checking around this thread I saw that there was a lot more positivity than there had been in years past. I felt comfortable announcing it, so I did. I was intending to add to the positivity by adding that post saying I wasn't getting harassed, that things were going well.

And for me, at least, I don't think it would have been easier... I was excited, I wanted to share my excitement. And I'd like to trade and gift later on. I would need to share that I won at that point, so I might as well tell everyone now to get the initial excitement out as well as sharing my current wishes.

I don't know if you won anything or not, and it's totally up to you whether you would share, or find it easy to refrain from doing so...but this is what I did, and I'm happy with my decision.

Yeah I'm looking to trade for my first second gen Gold and Silver Tinsel but I'm having a bit more difficulty finding Tinsel owners as opposed to Shimmers. -gets out magnifying glass- I guess I need to do some more searching.

Hmmm thats odd. On the page where you choose your code there was no picture above? I had a message saying I had won 2nd prize with the picture of a silver shimmer and the two choices of random or custom code, all on the same page.

As much as I would like to ask/request a 2nd gen (of anything) from the winners.. I don't really have the best selection of dragons, so I doubt I'd be able to offer anything worthy of such a trade. =p heh.

 

Congratulations again, to all the lucky winners. ENJOY YOUR PRIZE.

Nice! I was really trying not to get my hopes up because I never win things, and for some reason a previous post gave me the impression that people could still see which dragon they'd won on the raffle page even after submitting their code.

 

I guess I'll just have to wait and see (and love him/her even if their code doesn't really make sense with their breed/color wub.gif)!

Yeah, for me that page only had text about choosing a random code or entering the custom one. There was no text that I noticed about 1st/2nd/3rd prize, but I wasn't really paying close attention because it didn't even occur to me that I might have actually won... unsure.gif

So, the egg doesn't come right when you've selected the code you want/the fact that you want what you've won?

 

(I'm trying to figure out if I messed up by going through the process while egg-locked. unsure.gif I was just so excited that I won, I just went through and did the thing. I hope it didn't auto-abandon.)

Don't worry! No one has their prize egg yet. They're all handed out at a later time. smile.gif

No. The eggs are released about 2-3 weeks after drawing the raffle in order to give everyone time to respond. You do want to make sure you are not egg locked however when eggs are handed out. I don't think they auto abandon, you just have to wait till the redraw eggs are handed out if you are locked the first time.

Are the links still borked for anyone else? Trying to make sure I'm not just being an idiot before I poke the TJ bear.

False alarm, little brother admitted to going on my laptop and clicking the link. Definitely signing out of my email from now on.

Scared the crap out of me too. He's never seen a Vampire egg, so he thought it was the prize. It hatched this morning, and he tells me my new dragon is "dead."

Makes me wish I could change the code to ZOMBI.
