2015-01-15 - Raffle Status

Recommended Posts

I'm surprised the no-trade rule was even necessary. Even if someone doesn't want their prize for the prixe itself you'd think they'd want to at least keep a trade bait factory to get things they do want.

Offspring can be traded; the CBs can't.

 

Unless you meant people keeping it to trade instead of to trade the babies? xd.png

 

More edit lol: sorry I misunderstood; I think it was added to try to reduce the temptation to multiscroll as well as to reduce any extra harassment to prize owners.

There's nothing to suggest we don't? I just assumed it'd go through email as it has in the past from what I've been told.

A number of people are asking for clarification in the thread about it. So I was giving my opinion on IF there was no custom codes this time.

Prevents multiscrollers doing Bad Things. As happened last year.

I guess that makes sense. Though they could still abuse that even if they couldn't trade the CB prize to their main account.

Thanks, TJ!

 

Seemed likely you were on this, but it never does to be sure.

 

And if the reproduction's decent, unsure.gif maybe we can get back to DRAGONZ, (shiny or not)! lol

 

 

More generally:

 

just to mention, if anyone wants to actually think about processing 600 custom codes in the middle of everything else, this may not be TJ, lol.

 

I know if I were him, I'd really rather not. laugh.gif

 

 

And (in large, friendly letters) DON'T PANIC (yet) as many of us strongly suspect/hope that TJ has the 'HM' thing, too...

 

Good luck to all!

the store thing being discussed deals with in game currency (ie: liek the mana game or snow wars). an imaginary currency.

 

iirc i read in the rules that theres a big NO for Dragons for Real Money site wide. merchandise, yes. but spending money to purchase a pixel dragon for the scroll, no.

 

theres IRS implications for a system like this, and as much money as TJ might generate ... not to mention it turns this game from a non-profit to a "profit based" company and that has a whole nother set of implications and headaches and paperwork.

Not as in using actual MONEY - you complete 'missions' or play games or raise dragons for 'points' to use as currency. Go check the Suggestions forum.

 

eta: seriously ninja'd here.

I am glad to hear the trading is disabled. this will prevent multi scrollers from trading off. And prevent people from being scammed of their prize by others.

I am under the impression from TJ himself (discussion a few ages ago) that this is not going to happen on the site. I could be wrong, but I do not see him implementing it.

You had to play the ManaAlchemy game and win to get one entry for the Raffle. You had 14 chances in all I think.

 

ETA: that's the way I did it - which took a lot less time than having to wait for mana crystals to randomly appear.

You earned entries by gathering mana during the Holiday event in December.

A person could get a max of 14 entries IIRC.

You read right. I know somewhere TJ said he was keeping the game F2P since it didn't take much, besides there's always the donate link. I read somewhere would never have anything besides ads removed was I think the only thing you could buy, could be wrong
