Additionally: Please, for the love of all things wonderful in this world: READ. Read the FAQ! Read the journal that I spent a very long time typing out!
Yes! I am aware--MANY of you do not have numbers yet! I have only assigned.. maybe 2,500 so far, and I am in the process of moving all of them to a google document.
IF YOU REPOST YOUR ENTRY MULTIPLE TIMES IN THIS JOURNAL--YOU WILL NOT GET A NUMBER. PERIOD.
I have ENTIRELY too much work cut out for me as it is--you are making things HARDER for me. Please be courteous. Thank you.
EDIT: New end date is the 31st of this month--August! This is entirely too much for me to handle singlehandedly, so I'm cutting it a bit short in terms of deadline. xD; I hope no one minds. After August 31st, no new entrants will be counted. I will assign numbers through the first week in September, and on September 5th at noon Texas time I will post the stream so you guys can see the random number generator do it's thing.
Original: I've been wanting to give back to the community for a long time, because I have been here a long time. 5 years, to be exact--and what better way to do so than to do a raffle?
I'm holding a raffle for $500 USD--or it's equivalent in points
...There ISN'T one! All you have to do to participate is easy: Make a journal advertising this one and post a link in the comments section.
Things to make note of:
When you comment, I will reply with a number. This is your "ticket," or your hat to be thrown into the ring, so to speak. I will put the number of participants into a random number generator on Livestream on
As of now, you can only get *one* ticket, or number. I may add other ways in to get extra votes later, but for now--you just get one! No side accounts, please be fair.
There will be three winners. First prize is for $250, second is for $150, third is for $100.
You have to have a PayPal account if you want the cash, otherwise you will receive the prize in points.
If you delete your journal or hide your comment, you are forfeiting your entry. No exceptions.
I may add onto this later, who knows! But for now, let me take the chance to say: THANK YOU! Thank you for 5 great years on the site. Thank you for all of your support, thank you for your feedback, and thank you for giving me the drive and the encouragement to keep moving forward.
Good luck, and thank you!!
