okay, now that you've had a chance to pick your jaws up off the floor, here are the raffle rules and details:
donations made prior to this post:for donations made between 8/1/12 and the time/date of this post, the amount of each individual donation will be rounded up to the nearest $10, and one raffle entry will be awarded for every $10 donated. for example: $11 = two entries; $20 = two entries; $25 = three entries; $30 = three entries; $56 = six entries. round up, it's easy!
as i mentioned already, i've emailed everyone who has donated so far, to ask you for your forum username. i've heard back from almost everyone, but not quite - if you haven't replied to my email yet, please do so ASAP. if you didn't get an email from me, please email me at illyanadmc at thegiant dot org, and let me know your forum username (it helps if you use the same email address that you used to donate).
donations made between now and the donation deadline (see below):straight up, $10 = one raffle entry; no rounding up. so, for the same examples as above: $11 = one entry; $20 = two entries; $25 = two entries; $30 = three entries; $56 = five entries.
after you make your donation, please email me (using the same email address) at illyanadmc at thegiant dot org, and let me know your forum username so that i can easily identify you if you win the raffle.
other rules and stuff:the raffle is only open to active members of thegiant.org forum, as of the time/date of this post.
if you donated already, you are certainly free to donate again to increase your chances in the raffle!
the donation deadline for raffle tickets will be monday, october 1st at 11:59 PM EDT. this is a firm deadline!
this is how i will choose the raffle winner: i will put the usernames of all donors into an excel spreadsheet (e.g., if you donate $30, your username will be entered three times) in the order that the donations were made. i will then use the random number generator at random.org to choose the winner. i plan to do this the evening of tuesday the 2nd. and, don't worry, everyone! if i haven't been able to track down the winner's forum username, that person won't be disqualified (there will just be a delay before i can announce the winner).
the prize will be shipped to the winner directly from obey giant.
lastly, super duper thanks to everyone who has donated so far (and advanced thanks to those who donate in the next few days)! you guys have gone above and beyond - we've already raised enough funds for more than two years of hosting!! we really appreciate it, you guys. and, of course, crazy thanks to our friends at obey giant for donating this fantastic raffle prize and taking care of shipping!!
i'm proud to be the shepherd of this herd of sharks.
