Shae's Super Rad Raffles

Recommended Posts

SHAE’S SUPER RAD RAFFLES

 

These raffles are meant to be a chance for dedicated players to get rares they have trouble getting themselves,

and many of the raffles will be targeted specifically towards players who have earned a silver / gold trophy or

been around for a certain length of time. These restrictions have upset a few people in the past who couldn’t

participate, so please feel free to PM me if you’d like me to explain my reasoning.

I. General Info & FAQ

 

Basic Info

  • Raffles will be posted randomly whenever I get decent prizes for you guys =P
  • Each raffle event will usually have multiple “raffle baskets” to be won - yay!
  • A large majority of the raffles will be targeted towards dedicated players (usually a silver / gold trophy requirement, or restricted to players who have been around for at least “x” amount of time) who have very few of whatever I’m raffling off.
  • Each raffle will have it’s own set of rules or requirements, which can be found in post #3 of this thread - please read that post completely every time you enter a raffle!
  • Raffles entries are submitted via the google docs form that will be linked when a new raffle is open.
  • Winners are generally chosen by random.org. The list of names for each raffle is inputted into the list randomizer, which will shuffle the list and spit out a completely random list order. Whoever is at the top of the new list is selected as that prize’s winner smile.gif
  • Winners will be messaged privately with a one way teleport link. PMs are normally sent out within an hour or two of the raffle closing (though please be understanding if, for some reason, I’m unable to do so) and prizes must be picked up within a certain amount
What types of prizes will be raffled off?Current list of things that you might see as prizes

 

More Often:

  • 3G Prizes
  • CB Silvers
  • CB Xenowyrms
  • CB Spessartines
  • CB Red (Rainbow) Coppers
  • 2G metals or 3G / 4G metal checkers
  • Nicely lineaged black / vine / undine alts

Less Often:

  • NDs
  • CB Trios
  • 2G Prizes
  • Unbreedables
  • New Releases
  • CB Almandines
  • CB Green Coppers
  • Hollies (during Christmas breeding)
  • 2Gs from spriter’s alts, thuweds, and CB prize fails
How long are the raffles open for?
  • This will vary based on different factors, like how much time some of the prizes have and what I have going on in real life.

Some raffles might stay open for 24 to 48 hours, but most will only be open for six to twelve hours...some might be even shorter

if I have something that grows up soon! I will always announce how long a raffle is open for when I post it smile.gif

Do I have to pick just one ‘raffle basket’ to put my name in the drawing for? I can’t decide!
  • That’s okay, you don’t have to! I If you meet the requirements for every single one of the prizes in an event, you’re more

than welcome to put your name in for all of them if you want to. Right now I remove a player’s name from any other prize baskets

they signed up for once they get selected as a winner, but I’m considering removing that rule.

What if I’m really close to being able to enter one of your raffles? Will you make an exception?
  • Approval (or not) will be on a case by case decision. If I require participants to have a gold trophy (500 dragons on their scroll)

and you have 492, that’s close enough to let slide as long as I can see that you’re still actively collecting dragons. If there are too

many issues caused by trying to give players some wiggle room, however, I’ll have to stop doing it.

General Rules

  • Please keep posts in this thread on topic smile.gif
  • All entries must be submitted via the google forms link that will be posted with each new raffle. Please make sure to fill out everything properly (spelling of your name, correct forum / scroll links, all the necessary questions answered, etc) or your name may not be put into the raffle drawing. I've set up the forms so that you guys can edit your own responses if you made a mistake and didn't realize it until after submitting your form. If anything about the raffle form (or raffle in general) in confusing, PM me. If you made an error on your form and are having trouble editing it post-submission, or if there's a technical issue preventing you from entering, please feel free to PM me so I can enter or edit your information myself.
  • All of the rules listed here and for each raffle event must be followed in order to be eligible to win a prize.
  • No trading / gifting / freezing / abandoning / vamping / neglecting / killing / etc. of a raffle prize unless you’ve spoken with me first.
    • The only trading you don't need to ask me about is if you want to find a genderswap trade for a CB dragon you've won <3
  • I reserve the right to remove an entry from the drawing pool for any reason, though this is not something I will do lightly.
  • General requirements for participating in any event (unless I state otherwise in the raffle’s specific rules / requirements):

    ———

    • You must have a silver or gold trophy
    • Your scroll must be visible when the raffle ends and the winners are picked. If you are not comfortable with having your scroll unhidden during the time it takes me to select the winners, please PM me so I can look at your scroll ahead of time.
    • In order to enter the drawing for a raffle prize, you can't have too many of them already on your scroll. Please see the 'Raffle Prize Scroll Limits' section at the bottom of this post to see what the limit is for various raffle prizes. Anyone who is confused about this should PM me so I can explain it better or in more detail.

      ———

      • Example #1, CB silver: you need to have five or fewer CB silvers on your scroll. Other generations (2G silvers, 10th gen silvers, etc) don't matter what-so-ever.
      • Example #2, 2G from a spriter's alt: you need to have five or fewer 2Gs from any spriter's alt. Higher gens don't matter what-so-ever.
    • I always check the winner’s scrolls to make sure this rule has been followed before sending out any PMs or announcing the winners, and anyone found to be breaking this rule will be removed from ALL of the raffles they’re entered in and given a warning. I know that sometimes players might forget or miscount or have some other honest reason for the mistake. However, if I feel like anyone has deliberately tried to slip past any of these rules then there will be no warnings. They will be permanently blacklisted from any raffle, lotto, contest, or gift exchange that I’m directly involved in running.

I'm loving all the entries flying in!! Just a few notes:

  • I amended the CB Xeno rule so that it's five per biome. If there's even one biome you have five or fewer from, you're eligible to enter.
  • I also changed the settings on the form so that you guys can edit your own responses after submitting them! This way if you realize you made a mistake with something or want to change an answer for some other reason, you can do so any time before the raffle closes smile.gif
  • If anyone sees any other issues, or if there's anything in the rules / info / etc posts that should be added or fixed or reworded to be more clear, please let me know - thanks!

I took a while to figure out where the googledocs link was. blink.gif (Am too tired should save things like this for tomorrow goodnight I'm done *flop onto bed*)

 

I got into the drawing and I have my favorite two to win (CB gold and/or Xenos) but entered some others just in case I don't get those two and I'd still be able to use one of the others. :3 Except for vines, even though that IS a gorgeous lineage. I hope someone else gets that one who really loves it and will make good use of it. biggrin.gif

 

I can't see what the results may be! :3 *bouncy*

You must have an account that is at least two years old. Let's say...if you joined before January 1st, 2014 then you are eligible for this prize.

I would like to ask about it - I joined DC much earlier than in 2014, but I made my forum account in June 2014 - can I join this part of raffle? I wanted to be sure smile.gif (And I don't have any 2G prize of course smile.gif ).

Oh wow thank you for this! Seems like raffles are the new thing on the forums! I've been wanting to host a raffle, but I'd get so disorganized, I just hope I can help out with this one!

 

Happy Thanksgiving!

Thank you, once again (and always!) for these raffles!

 

One day, I will figure out how in the world the text entry links to your super rad raffles does what they do (because I need to have that type of text entry link animation in my life, omg! xd.png)!

 

Happy Thanksgiving to those who celebrate!

Oh c: thank you very much; I don't know how to edit my entry (do I have to login to something?) XD so I really appreciate that. You are quite amazing <3

 

Good luck to everybody who's entering! And Happy Thanksgiving ;D
