jumping0047.gifAHH!Ā  I won something?!Ā  THANK YOU, WONDERFUL DONOR!Ā  It's the one I was hoping for, too, as I've a lovely intended mate that's been languishing since I caught it back in August.Ā  *stares longingly at pm'd link*Ā  Just 6 hours until I'm out of hatchie-lock then I'll pick it up ASAP, promise, well within the 24 hour window.

Ā 

And thanks muchly @The Dragoness for holding this raffle - wanted to donate but missed the window by 2 hours waiting for birthday babies to grow up :(.Ā  Will try very hard not to be locked next week so I can donate at least one pretty thing then.

Congratulations to the winners!

I like the voucher idea, but it might be hard to deliver the prize if someone wins a 2G gold from mate of choice and chooses a new released breed or something like that.

Donators should be aware of this.

Ā 

I'm looking forward to the next raffle. :)

Cheers

I guess donators would put that into their "reasonable set of rules" like "breeding only with holidays or other metallics" or "only with breeds priced at 1000 shards or more in the Market".

Updates

If anyone would like to see any additional changes made, please let me know!

Added:

  • Breeding vouchers

I briefly explained this in my last thread update, but I will do it again. The official requirements/rules are in the first post. Breeding vouches are essentially free IOUs that donors can offer as prizes. You may offer up to two vouchers per raffle, but you must own at least one parent per voucher. Players can win only one voucher per raffle.Ā 

News section in third post that will be regularly updated

Any and all thread updates will be noted here. The newest entry will always be at the top of the list.

  • Strike systemĀ 

This technically isn't a new feature as I did try it a while ago, but it was a flawed system in which I made many rule exceptions. In order for things to run smoothly, I need to do a better job of enforcing the rules. The new system will work like this: breaking aĀ rule will result in a strike. Your first strike will result in a warning via PM and explanation of the rules. If you receive anotherĀ strike, I will place you under temporary ban. This will prevent you from entering the next two raffles. If you still receive a third strike, I will issue a permanent ban, forbidding you from entering all futureĀ raffles. Banned players may continue to donate. You are welcome to ask me to reconsider your strike(s)Ā at any time, although I recommend you only do so if you are confident that you did not break the rules I say you have.

  • Reduced prize per winner limitĀ 

The original limit of 4 prizes has been decreased to 2 as I have seenĀ many cases of the same people winning the max number of prizes each raffle while others get nothing. This does mean that any prizes which have only been entered for by winners who have reached the max will not be drawn for.

  • New features inĀ both Google forms

Removed:

  • Rule requiring visibleĀ scroll before enteringĀ 

Viewbombing and harassment have become increasingly prevalent within the last few months. It can take me hours at times to see a PM about an unhidden scroll, which leaves your eggs vulnerable. That's not fair. So I am lifting this rule and instead asking all of you to be honest about the whereabouts of your prizes. I will still be able to see if your prizes suddenly have a new username on their view pages or pop up in a trade thread. I respect each and every one of you, so I am giving you my trust.

  • Allowance of late entries

So this was anĀ unspoken thing. I have always publicly announced the closing of the donation form and had the deadline displayed for days beforehandĀ in the second post, but there have still been times where I received PMs about late donations. I would usually feel bad and say yes, which meant closing the entry form, adding the new prize(s), opening the form again, and then informing everyone of the change. Sometimes people missed out on prizes because they entered early and didn't check back until the results were posted. I'm not trying to scold anyone that has asked. I just want to make sure people are never excluded from certain prizes in the future.

Now Acceptingļ»æļ»æĀ Donations!ļ»æ

Ā 

Our raffle theme this week is Infinity. This is partially based off of a request for a Marvel theme, but I decided to choose something that would interest everyone ratherĀ than just Marvel fans. You are welcome toĀ breed the newĀ birthday "Infinity" dragons, dragons with Marvel inspired names,Ā or simply time element breeds. This will also be the first raffle in which breeding vouchers are accepted.

Don't forget the AP is full of ready to incuhatch eggs, if you are full on slots or less space to donate, consider incuhatching some eggs and donating some hatchlings (as individuals or packs) because everyone LOVES hatchlings, and everyone has more room for hatchlings! I should *NOT* be up this late, just took a sleeping pill and am off to bed, and may not be able to advertise this int he Player Activities Thread, so if it hasn't already been done, please remember to consider posting over there for both the donation and entry times (same goes for ANY player event and/or resource or DC related thing relating to players) and I know we have two raffles running back to back staggered a bit, but we also got a low time AP, take advantage of that! Don't forget to spread the love of both donation and remember those VOUCHERS and remember to let others know because that is two raffles they can enter to WIN which is a ton of fun for everyone!!

Ā 

Great way to recruit and support these events, we ended May DC's Birthday Month with a BANG and are still celebrating it a bit theme wise here, and we have a new bigger DC raffle, so some of these raffle wins can also be the dragons that help you enter to win the new expanded June DC Raffle!! Come Celebrate and have a great time! Share the news, give what you can, and when all else fails, if the raffle allows it, partner with others, and consider hatchlings and vouchers. People love these. And if nothing else, make sure to ENTER and keep track of these raffles (following is the easiest way) so you never miss future chances to donate and/or enter, and make sure to share the word. Especially with Bronze to Silver to even Gold Trophy Players. We want everyone to enter and win of all levels, but our growing players are the ones who are usually most excited to win fun fantastic prizes and get the most excited and turn into our future most awesome involved people in the player community and love to get involved and give back and actively also share this news with others! So give as you can, even if it is just sharing the news and getting involved!

I am going incuhatchling crazy for this donation round. Donating a variety of CB hatchlings from AP, but I've seen some nice checkers and alt lotto eggs that have plenty of fun fishing and treasure hunting in the AP. Who wants to join me?
