[F.A.Q.] How do random draw giveaways work?

Post by Irayna » June 25th, 2016, 10:52 am

How many winners will each giveaway have?
The number of winners for an individual giveaway will be noted in the event details. The winner(s) will be drawn randomly from the total list of entries.

How many entries am I allowed in each giveaway?
The number of entries for an individual user will be noted in the event details.

How do I enter?
Each event has its own rules for entry.
  • Sometimes you send a pet to a donation drive and the order you enter is the order that the pets are received by the donation drive toon.
  • Sometimes you make a post in a forum thread. These may require you to answer a question, submit a screenshot, or just post something specific.
  • Sometimes you PM a member of the staff team. These are usually times when you are answering a quiz or hunting for things, and posting to a forum thread will give away the answers to other members.
Make sure that you pay attention to the type of event and how to enter to ensure that your entry counts properly.

How are winners randomly drawn?
Everyone who posts a response will have their names added to the entry list alphanumerically in the order that they posted. At the end of the adoption week, we will draw a winning number using A3's random winner generator (RWG) powered by Random.org.
Example 1Each member is allowed one entry and only one winner will be chosen.
Entries Received in the Following Order
Piwakawaka
Jedikitten
Astrae
Irayna
The Numbered Entry List
1. Piwakawaka
2. Jedikitten
3. Astrae
4. Irayna
The Drawing
-RWG 1 - 4; Result = 3. Winner = Astrae.
Example 2Each member is allowed one entry and multiple winners will be chosen.
Entries Received in the Following Order
Piwakawaka
Jedikitten
Astrae
Irayna
The Numbered Entry List
1. Piwakawaka
2. Jedikitten
3. Astrae
4. Irayna
The Drawing
-RWG 1 - 4; Result = 3. Winner = Astrae.
-RWG 1 - 4; Result = 3. Roll doesn't count as it's a duplicate roll
-RWG 1 - 4; Result = 2. Winner = Jedikitten.
Example 3Each member is allowed multiple entries and only one winner will be chosen.
Entries Received in the Following Order
Piwakawaka
Jedikitten

-RWG 1 - 6; Result = 6. Winner = Piwakawaka.

This information has been updated. Winners are now drawn using a random winner generator powedered by random.org instead of using a in game /roll. Everything still functions the same, but the place of drawing has changed.
