EDIT: 05/07/2012

This is what I am willing to do. I am reluctant to change the terms of the raffle but on the other hand I am really busy with another project right now which is why I am not on the forum much lately so I will set a deadline.

I will give this a maximum of six more weeks.

If all the tickets do not sell by June 18th - I will use the first block solved after 12:01AM UTC on June 18th to Pick a Winner from tickets 1-300, if it picks a ticket number that is not sold we will go to the second solved block after 12:01 on June 18th and continue on in that fashion until the raffle ticket number picker picks a number of a ticket that has been sold, as soon as a winner is picked I will ship the prize to the winner that same day.

If the Tickets sell out before June 18th we will pick the winner as described in the beginning

and Either way no matter how many tickets I sell I will still donate 60 BTC to the Forum.

I am sorry this was not as much of a success as I thought it would of been, I will continue to advertise the best I can and I welcome you to do the same and send me any suggestions you might have on how we can sell more tickets.

Thanks for participating, and thanks to those who have showed patience and composure.

Did you mean to have it in a frame? (It wasn't before)
In a frame, I can't see the Bit-pay SSL stuff to be sure that it it secure. Of course, I can load the page outside of the frame, and that shows that all is well.

this was just a temporary fix so tickets can be ordered - trying to figure out why the form code was being stripped from that page now

Also, I bought ticket #42, but it doesn't show as an X and allows others to enter on the same ticket number.

reload the site, it appears to be working for everyone else. If you are blocking iframe you wont be able to buy tickets at the moment but the rest of the site is pretty standard stuff and should not be blocked.

Hi, I think there is a glitch. I purchased 19of300 but it is still buyable and there is no "red X".

GL to everyone entering!

I think 300 bitcoins for 100bitcoin prize is too large cut.

Let's do some math.

300 BTC - 20% donation (60 BTC) - cost of prize (112 BTC) == 128 BTC profit (42%)

This does not include his time to make the site, setup bit-pay, deal with this thread, pick a winner, etc. So let's say that's 30 hours.

128BTC / 30 hours of work == 4.267 BTC per hour (~$20 / hr)

If you think it is wrong for someone to make $20/hr in BTC to let forum members have a fun and a chance of winning a pretty cool prize, maybe you should try to do better while taking a smaller cut.
