Hey there curious traveler! Welcome to my exciting little thread. I assume since you've ventured here that you're seeking the treasure hidden deep within the confines of this thread – a free Minecraft account! If so, then welcome! Enjoy your stay and test your luck with a roll of the dice! If not, well, see you next time! Within this thread I will be giving away one (or more) accounts every month to a random forum user for free.
"Wow, a free account! But wait, what's the catch?"
Don't worry wayward traveler, this thread comes with no hidden mob spawners. It's merely a simple way for me to give back to a community that has brought me boundless entertainment within the past three years.
"Whoa! Well, give me my free account!"
Hold up there, take a breather. Before we get to giving away accounts I'll need you to confirm that you're eligible for the giveaway. If you're not, then just try again next month. To enter the raffle you must meet the following requirements:
-You must have at least 100 posts on the forums. (I will check to make sure you aren't simply spamming)
-You must be a member for at least 1 month at the time of entry. (I will check this too.)
If you meet these two simple requirements then you can go ahead and proceed deeper into this thread!
"How do I enter? Tell me! Tell me now!"
Okay, okay. So, you've ventured deep within the forums and returned a month later, your 100 glorious posts in tote. So what now? Now you can post a reply to this thread with your forum username in it. Your post can simply be your username and nothing more, but if it doesn't at least include your username I will not count your entry.
"Here, take my username! Now, how do I win?"
Now that you've given me your entry I'll add it into a spoiler at the bottom of this post and assign you an entry number. I'll use a random number generator to pick the winner each month. If you've won you will recieve a confirmation PM from me here on the Minecraft forums. I WILL NEVER CONTACT YOU BY E-MAIL, SKYPE, OR ANY OTHER SERVICE. ALSO, I WILL ONLY CONTACT YOU FROM THIS ACCOUNT. Once I PM you I will expect a reply within 1 week or you will forfeit your account and I will draw a new winner. Once I receive confirmation I will send a code from a Minecraft Pre-paid card that I purchased earlier in the month and instructions on how to redeem the code. I will then post the winner to the thread and move along with the next month.
"I thought giveaways were against the rules though, Relyh. Won't this be deleted?"
I have already received confirmation that this post fits within the MCF rules.
If you have any questions, comments, or concerns you can feel free to contact me in this thread or by PM.
I am not calling you shady or inaccurate, but how the lottery system has rolling cages with numbered balls to choose numbers instead of programs... we learned in statistics class that the only "true" random numbers are ones pulled from nature, as all computer-generated numbers using only software are merely doing a complex equation that appears random to us.
But I perhaps shouldn't have said all this. If you feel like this may give you poor PR, I'll edit it up. >.<
I'm kind of sorry I brought this up; I think too much... and numbers are fascinating to think about, to me.
