Will we have an October lotto? Maybe one centered around gifting or experiments? :ph34r: :D 

 

* * * * *

Also, some ideas:

1. Lottos could be varying lengths of time from challenge to challenge depending on real life or maybe the current task. So one challenge we might do a two week “sprint” task while another could be longer and be, say, two months. Whatever works within your schedule, honestly. ^_^ 

 

2. Anyone with at least one qualifying dragon could get a ticket entry (rather than requiring four for the first ticket). This is to hopefully encourage more participation, plus some challenges (like creating zombies) are naturally harder...

 

3. For longer challenges, should there be a max ticket count participants can receive?

 

...

 

I think I had some more ideas a month ago about this but I forgot them and forgot to post. Will let you know if anything else comes to mind. Feel free to disregard the ideas if not interested :) 

All good points! I'm definitely thinking about reworking the ticket system because it feels overly complicated. I'm just not quite sure how to make entering challenging while fun. I don't want to limit anyone from entering.

 

As for October, I would be open to hosting a Halloween themed contest. However, the prize issue comes into play. I also have next to zero trading luck. But I haven't received any Grand Prize donation offers yet for this month, so I'm kind of stuck. Like Glittering Gold Giveaways, this thread largely survives on the basis of donations.

 

Edit: thanks to a very generous donor, we will have an October lotto after all! I'll post the official announcement with details soon.

Updates

What's New?

  • Some lottos will now offer multiple ways to earn tickets--just check out the Monthly Task(s) for the current lotto
  • Unless the dragons in question are gifts, you no longer need to post every time you add a new dragon. Simply add them to your Lucky Lottos group and I will do the final count at the end of the lotto. For gifts, you will need to post every time though.
  • Ticket System
    • 1 ticket = 1 entry of your name in the drawing
    • Successful experiments are worth 2 tickets
  • Runner-Up Prizes
    • I will distribute enough prizes for 40% of the participant pool (ex. out of 10 participants, 4 will receive Runner-Up Prizes + however many Grand Prize winners there are)
    • If you are drawn, you must state which prize you would like in the thread. Private PMs don't let other winners see what is still available. If you don't post within 24 hours, someone else will be picked
    • Donors: please remember the new limit when donating. While it was nice to give everyone a prize after the last lotto, this game is meant to be a lotto rather than a giveaway

Quick questions on gifting:

1. How do we prove that we gifted an egg/hatchling? Do we need screenshots of our action log?

 

2. Can we gift to users outside of the thread or only other participants?

 

3. Do the gifted dragons have to be bred from our scroll or can nice AP Halloween finds be gifted as well? Second question could be especially relevant for users without any Halloweens yet who want to participate.

 

Also quick question for zombies:

Does the kill date for the dragon need to be October 22 or later, or just the revive date?

 

And for vampires:

Do repulsed vampires qualify? (I’m assuming for repulsed vamps to qualify you would have to have your scroll link visible on the biting vampire dragon so that you could prove the vampire doing the biting is yours)

Sorry for the slow reply! My notifications haven't been popping up as they should, so I just saw this.

 

1. Just @ the recipient and link the gift. There's a gifting form just for this in the first post. I'm trusting gifters to be honest, so there's no proof necessary beyond that.

 

2. You can gift to anyone!

 

3. Gifted dragons can be CB, AP finds, or bred from your own scroll. It doesn't matter as long as they're Halloweens.

 

Zombies do need to be killed on or after the 22nd so that I can verify that they were not revived before the lotto. 

 

Repulsed Vamps won't be counted. Getting a Vampire is significantly easier than getting a Neglecteded, so removing rejects from the pool levels the odds somewhat. Both are worth the same amount of tickets so it's only fair.

 

One more thing that I should probably clarify: gifted Vampires or Neglecteds will not be worth 4 tickets. They will be viewed as gifts, as all experiments must be frozen or grown on your scroll to be counted as such.

I started the lotto before Halloween breeding begins to give experimenters a head start on stocking up on fodders. 

 

THE OCTOBER LOTTO IS NOW ACTIVE!
