Perhaps add a second prize like a small mining contract(maybe 1 to 5 GH/s for a day or two) or cheap video card like the 5770.

I've watched the site for a while now and I for one have not even thought about buying a ticket until there were a lot more tickets sold.  I could do quite a bit with 1 BTC in the time it will likely that for all the tickets to sell.  I say set a date and the tickets will sell quickly, if they don't refund everyone on that date.

Thanks for chiming in randomproof.

Yes, that is a common trend in such raffles: There's a sales momentum at the beginning, and another one towards the end. By not setting an end date Cablepair set himself up to loose that wave towards the end. I PM'd him about that, and he just answered. I'll keep watching where this is going...

Note: I edited my original message here as Cablepair did respond to my last PM now and I'm eagerly awaiting where this is going  Smiley

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 on June 19th 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 19th 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.

I will add the raffle to my list and give it a bump Wink

Which is much better than almost any raffle in the real world.

And no I have not been involved in this rattle, and why would I be? Its a loss for me, an experiment that did not go right,

But why should you complain? The less tickets sold means better odds for you, and June 18th is not that far away...

It sucks the raffle did not do as well as I thought it would but oh well you cant win 'em all, This is a loss for me but its all good - this was mostly for fun as I have much bigger business to deal with these days.

lol thanks for your optimism but I dont need this thread or this raffle for people to have confidence in me or my ventures

I have too many other things going on that are way more successful

*cough*cough*

Like the worlds #1 Bitcoin Web Hosting company, the worlds first and #1 Bitcoin Social Network, oh yeah and an incredibly lucrative FPGA manufacturing business

I think I'm good Smiley


The worst thing that happened to this raffle was when lame ass bitches who have nothing better to do came in here and starting talking shit

The problem with some people is they have nothing going on positive for themselves so they just go around looking for others who are actually doing something and try and tear them down, they did not hurt me they hurt this raffle - and the funniest thing about that is they did not even buy a ticket, some people need to learn to mind their own business..

but its all good man, I'm going to keep it moving -although its technically a loss for me, Ill still donate the 60 btc to the forum and ship the card to the winner its pocket change really does not mean a thing.


12 More days to go! Smiley
