New contest: Posting for Millions!

Hi Gaians,

Win up to 5 million gold, just for having good timing!  All you have to do is check this thread at the right time and you could win big!  To qualify, simply post a brief answer as to how you’d spend your winnings if you won.  Then, every day or so, we’ll randomly pick a user from those who posted in the past 24 hours and add it to the potential winners list below.  That user has 20 minutes from the time we announce their username, to PM us.  If they don’t, we add another 100,000 gold to the jackpot and pick another user sometime the following business day.  Then that person has 20 minutes to PM us, and so on and so on until someone wins the jackpot.  The jackpot starts now at 100,000 gold and can grow huge! (maximum payout = 5 million)

So here’s all you have to do to enter this easy contest:

1) Reply with how you’d spend your winnings.  Why not make your reply fun and interesting? (only one entry per calendar day otherwise you’re disqualified – trust me, we’ll check and we can tell easily)

2) Come back here  daily to see if your username (or someone you know) was chosen.  We will randomly pick from those who replied since the previous day’s user was picked – so post as soon as you see that another user got chosen.  The exact time the usernames will be posted will vary from day to day, so check back here often!

3) Send a PM (to: Not Robin Leach) within 20 45 minutes to claim the jackpot and include your email address that you have on file with that account (required for authenticity verification reasons). Incomplete PMs will not qualify so do it right.  The date/time stamps of the PMs (always in PDT) will determine whether someone has won or was too late.  Winner must be in good standing on Gaia (not had ToS violations, etc).  All decisions will be made at the sole discretion of Gaia and will be deemed final (sorry, but we can’t afford Price Waterhouse as an independent auditor).

This contest will be ongoing until 1) we run out of gold to give out or 2) we run out of fun with it.

So, start playing by telling us what you’d do with the loot!  And tell us here what you think of this contest! We’ll have new contests soon, so make sure to check back here daily or subscribe to this blog and be one of the first to find out about the new, shiny things we’re about to give away!

Good luck everyone! May the postings begin!

Note for those of you who see this before an announcement goes out:  You’ll have even greater chances of winning since you entered it first before the bazillions of users join the contest early next week.  We’ll pick the first username on Monday.  Just another perk from checking this blog often.



List of the randomly chosen users who have 20 45 minutes to PM (send to: Not Robin Leach) to claim their prize:

koudelkaW – Has until 10:44am 9/20/10 to claim the prize of 100,000 gold!  We’re waiting to hear from you, so hurry! Oh man, too bad, but this user didn’t claim the prize in time, so the jackpot goes up to 200,000 gold and a new username will be picked sometime tomorrow (Tue, 9/21).  So post again, something related to this contest.

Kira Yukari — Has until 1:20pm 9/21/10 to claim the prize of 200,000 gold!  PM us nao! Darn it, Kira missed out.  Try again.  On to the next user.

Little Sexy Emo Girl — has until 5:18pm 9/22 to claim the prize of 300,000 gold!  Operators are standing by! Sorry, but no dice…we didn’t get the PM in time — she was some 12 hours too late.  But good try!  So a new username will be picked sometime later today so remember to post each and every day.  Hint: it’ll be sometime this afternoon and since you guys asked, we’ll try to pick them at all varied hours of the day especially after school hours.  🙂

x Karurie x — has until 3:41pm 9/23 to claim the 400,000 jackpot!  Come and get it! Note that this contest is now 538% easier because we’ve increased the amount of time to send the PM to a full 45 minutes AND outside of school hours.  Disclaimer: we can no longer control what part of the world you live.  Because we WANT you guys to win, we’re also quoting the user so that they get an email (it pays to also have the text notification feature turned on!).  EDIT: The jackpot wasn’t claimed, so it continues to grow to 1/2 a million gold!  Who’s it going to be?  Start posting for another chance.  Bonus tip: We’ll be picking tomorrow’s (9/24) username sometime after 5pm PDT.
