Binerexis' Shameless Raffle Ripoff!

Postby Binerexis on Sat Dec 04, 2010 9:10 pm

Hey look, a Steam Group

Wait a minute, don't you already have a thread here?

It's true, this is my second thread in this section but it would become crazily huge if I was to do that there as well. Sorry, but it's just how it is.

So what are you doing this time?

Well I came up with this totally new and original idea which I didn't copy AT ALL from the Unusual Hat Club forums; a raffle where you can win a hat FOR COMPLETELY FREE!

So how does this work?

It's really quite simple.

Care to elaborate?

OK fine. Every week (or maybe more often if the demand is high enough) a number of participants will have the chance of winning one randomly generated hat for the price of at least one scrap metal each (27 entrants at 1 Scrap per 'ticket' = 27 Scrap = 1 hat). When all the Scrap is collected, all participants will be randomly assigned a number between 1 and X (where X is the number of participants) and then a winner will be picked via random number generator (the one I'll be using can be found at http://www.random.org/). The winner will then be notified and given their hat ASAP.

(If you want to take part but have no Scrap, you should really click here as soon as you possibly can)

Wait a minute, how do we know you won't take out Scrap and run?!

If I were to cut and run with your scrap, it would do me more harm than good. My reputation would be ruined, I'd lose my admin status, no one would ever love me again and all I'd have to show for it is one hat. I know that some people go crazy for hats but I'm not that insane.

HEY! I gave you my Scrap four days ago and there's still been no raffle, WHAT GIVES?

I'll only run the raffle once I have enough metal to craft a hat otherwise I'm using my own supply of metal to fund it. Don't get me wrong, I love the UKCS Community but not enough to shell out a shed load of metal because we're still waiting on two refined. If you want it to go quicker, you'll have to spread the word a little bit.

That guy has won four times in a row, THIS IS A SCAM!

If that situation ever does arise, I assure you that I'll be checking and re-checking everything that was involved. Don't get me wrong, it's pretty unlikely but anything can happen with RNG's.


Current Participants:

Kaelan
Viking Bear x9
9_bar x2
Guy923

Just to clarify, you can only enter once. 27 Participants, 27 pieces of scrap total, one scrap per person.


In hindsight, writing this after vodka and beer probably wasn't the best idea. I'll start taking scrap for this tomorrow but make sure you actually post here and let me know in the trade that it's for this.

I'm logging into Steam now so if you want to take part, trade me the scrap as soon as you can so I can make a note of it here.

I consider Binerexes a valued and trustworthy member of our admin team, and on top of that hes a good, reliable guy, and has my complete trust.
