Howdy folks! A while back, I posted a poll to gauge interest in a giveaway. You answered, and an overwhelming 81% of you would break down my front door if it meant getting to enter sooner, 11% couldn't wait, 5% would check it out casually, and a paltry 3% didn't even want a plushie (Boooooo!)! Now, I want this to be easy and accessible, and therefore, it's a free contest that everyone stands a fair chance at maximizing their odds. Without further ado, I'd say it's time for some free plushie giveaway, so let's get to it!
Here, have some (potentially tentative) rules:
1) To enter, simply comment on this journal stating which one of the main cast of ponies
you'd like most (Watchers who are entering, whether pre-existing or new, get double entries, for twice the odds to win!)
2) The entrants will be put on a numbered spreadsheet, and at the end of the contest, a number will be selected randomly to determine the winner.
3) Only the first post counts as an entry; subsequent comments may be posted for fun or for discussion/questions but will not net you more entries!
4) The winner must reply to my message within 3 days of the contest finishing, or else I'll have to draw another random number and pass on the win to someone else. Don't just comment and forget!!
5) There will only be one winner.The contest will end on Sunday, January 22 at 11:59 PM Eastern time.
I'll also need a mailing address from the winner, or else it would be awfully tough to get your prize to you. So, for any possible younger entrants, please get a parent's permission before entering. It will also take up to two weeks for the prize to be made and sent.
A list of valid plushies for your entry (only pick the one you want most):
I think that's everything, but if anyone needs clarification or has a suggestion for the contest rules, don't be afraid to let me know! If for some reason anyone would just like to comment but doesn't want an entry, please say so when commenting.
Thanks, and I hope you guys have fun!
And as a random little tangent, I'll probably finally get to sprucing up this ol' journal a bit. Hooray!EDIT:
Holy cow, this is already a huge turnout for me. Over 300 comments in a single night? You guys are awesome!
Also, I guess I'll keep a changelog here:
1/10/2012, 11:38 AM: Fixed a grammar error and completed an incomplete sentence.
1/20/2012, 5:47 PM: Made the ending time a little bit more specific!
1/22/2012, 12:09 AM: Removed two entrants who requested to be removed due to various reasons.
1/23/2012, 12:00 AM: Further entries will not be counted in the upcoming drawing. Results will likely be finished and posted tomorrow! I'll need to compare the entries against my watchers to find out who all has double entries or not. Thanks for participating guys, looking forward to announcing the winner soon!
