Yeah, I didn't think that part of it through.

Stupid question. What if there's one ticket left and someone registered for four wins it? Still, that would be one in 1000 or more odds.

It's a limit of two in this go around, but if the name is drawn the order will be fulfilled in its entirety.

So... either it just by lucky chance all works out to 3000 requests drawn, 3000 fulfilled, OR they fudge a bit, and print up a couple extra $420 tickets?

No tickets are printed up at the time of sale (that happens in June). There is enough leeway that, in the pre-sale and main sale drawings, if fulfilling the last order takes them 1-3 tickets over the stated limit it can still be fulfilled. I don't know whether that will be the case with the open sale - since that one is first come, first serve it may just tell you that there aren't enough tickets to fulfill the request.

134 posts and you are calling a regular contributor a troll. Right.

If you don't like what is said:

    * Say something smarter
    * Point out the facts
    * Ignore the post
    * Unsubscribe from that thread's updates
    * Block the poster
    * Leave eplaya
    * {Rude stuff I will refrain from posting}

You know, there is a preview option. Which assists in detecting spelling mistakes....

* Some people piss me off on eplaya. I ignore them most of the time, rarely acknowledging them with a response. I usually look at what I have typed and ask myself "how would my grandma respond if I said that to her??"... Sometimes it pays to wait a day before responding, usually I am still annoyed, but my responses seem smarter ;)

ePlaya is an essentially anonymous interweb place, not the playa. It is much easier to be rude here, but I somehow manage to be rude on the playa as well. Your experience probably is a bit different than mine.

Hugs...

I make it a point to be a dick to someone every day on playa.

But it's ok, cause it's just the one eye.

That's difficult to say. You made some wild accusations in another thread BRCP, but to date I've not seen any details or information to back that up.

And the rest of the world hasnt seen any action taken against someone bragging about robbing a participant and the subsequent overwelming support of theft of mobility vehicles.

Any information you require about the felony theft that was bragged about and later condoned by BRC Ranger Badger can be found at the first page of the thread as you well know.

Hmmm...that has all the earmarks of a personal slur, personal attack, whatever you want to call it. Soooo isn't that punishable by banishment from eplaya??? Mods?? no? ok. I thought so. hehehe
Sometimes I'm confused by what I think is really obvious. But what I think is really obvious obviously isn't obvious.
