So Cablepair, what will it be?

I suggest you define an end date, pick the block hash after that end date and use that method to determine a winner:
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=77442.0
That method works even with non-continuous ticket numbers.

Otherwise I'll ask you to refund my BTC.
At this point I don't think any amount of advertising will sell all the tickets (unless you buy them yourself).

And I hope others will start to make requests to determine an end date for this and have some decision.

LESSONS LEARNED:
1. There is a psychological barrier to giving up whole coins at a time for most, since many are just getting started and don't have a fat wallet. Sell in smaller denominations and give bulk discounts.
2. Don't make it difficult to buy multiple tickets. What if someone wanted to buy 3 tickets in this raffle? Thay would have to pick them all out individually from the list - lame.

I would have given him the chance to end this gracefully (by setting an END DATE), but since there's no response and "do nothing" is no the "honest" option, I second this request. This raffle is dead in the water, no positive pep talk or ad campaign will change that, sorry!

I would rather he just decide a winner from the tickets purchased so far. If not that I would like a refund of 2 btc for the two tickets I purchased (1, 297).

This is insane.

Why on earth would you think I would change the terms of this raffle because you are impatient?

The terms are very clear for all to see and have been the same since day one. It CLEARLY states that the raffle ends when all 300 tickets are sold.

If you feel this is not going fast enough I apologize. Maybe this is the failure of the year, maybe not - I tried this out for the first time, we have sold a few tickets over the last few days but I admit its going much slower than I thought it would.

I repeat I will not change the terms of my raffle and there is no reason why I have to. If you want this raffle to end buy more tickets and encourage others to buy them as well.

I have been on this forum for a year and I will still be here this time next year, eventually all tickets will sell and at that time the winner will be picked using the methods described since day one.

I apologize for not answering replies on this thread sooner I have a major project ramping up and have devoted nearly 100% of my time to that. I will continue to advertise this raffle and will continue to do what it takes to make it end, but I will not change the terms I will not refund any money and you are crazy for thinking you have the right to force me to do so.

In reality all this kind of talk in this thread is just scaring others away and making this raffle go even longer.

Two people have already PMd me and demanded I change the terms of this raffle and end it early. I will not do so - so please save your keystrokes.


On the other hand I encourage participants to promote the raffle and come up with ways to sell tickets. I have no problem spending coin on advertising to make this work.

Hello cablepair,

I see no end to the raffle you are hosting anytime soon.  There has been no end date established nor have I seen any increase in ticket sales.  There has also been a lack of responses to other members inquiries regarding the raffle in the thread and has made me severly doubt the authenticity of the raffle.  At this point I am asking for a refund of my bitcoin.

My transaction was on 2012-04-06 20:11:21
and the ID is:

74a000e599aff99dbf5bf0cf116697c73b054b1aa79e474ab622d2ed12cb2d21

good luck with all your future endeavors.

thanks

DC

Refund denied.

The terms were clearly stated and you understood them when you purchased a ticket. If you thought I would change the terms of the raffle you should not of purchased a ticket.

Tickets have been selling, slowly but they are still selling.

When all three hundred tickets are sold I will draw a winner using the methods described.

Good Luck!


on a side note.. I dont see anywhere stating.. "no refunds"
and I have been watching sales closely you havent sold one for a few days

poop!

clear your cache and refresh the page tickets have been selling I sold one today and two yesterday

slow yes but they are selling. I am sorry you are not happy with the raffle but it would be more advantageous for you to promote this raffle than tear it down if you want it to end soon.

About 60 tickets sold. So 1/5 of all tickets sold. Maybe I will buy another.

Would you like to buy one from me ?

My number is 25 and I would like to sell my ticket because I don't like cablepair's attitude.

...if anyone has a good idea on how we can promote this raffle ...

Halving ticket price and issueing current ticket holders an additional ticket per ticket purchased wasn't a good idea?  I know you were looking to earn some money, but the advertising you bought didn't work out too well.  So you lose a few dollars and gain insight on how to better run a raffle.  Make a new one after this one is done to help cover the loss.

I am fairly sure, and you can verify this through a poll if you like, a set end date seems to be the consensus around here.  You seem to be the only one against it since it would be changing the rules.  How do you know that an end date won't increase ticket sales? If you do nothing, the raffle will never end and there you are sitting with all the ticket money.  It just doesn't look good.
