Just a suggestion...

How about you do it like this:

People get as many tickets as they want up to 10 (for example)

Then you take 10%

The rest is the prize money :)

So you mean on Friday I keep 10% and give away 90% or I take 10% of each person's donation? :? Either way thanks for suggesting. :)

It's kinda the same :? except that it makes for easier rounding if you do it from everyone's donation...

And instead of having a list of 20, you just assign people numbers (in order) as the donations come in... (therefore you don't limit yourself to twenty entries...)

So essentially what happens is that the more people enter, the more prize money there is (but the less chance of getting it there is)

And your idea of increasing the price of tickets factorially is really good - as it stops people swamping it with say 100 tickets...

This is possibly the only thing to do with your Psybucks now though... I mean all the shops are free and the forum based stuff is prohibitively expensive... so we can gamble it all away :lol:

Thanks Blazester! I got it from Joey's Spriting Market, owned by Joey90. He's posted here before, just find the link in his sig. (You owe me Joey! I'm advertising for you :lol: Lol!)

And Tigerd...I haven't received any donation from you...so if you were wondering why you aren't on yet, that's why. :(

Blazester is on probation for Psybuck abuse... so even if he wins he can't recieve any :? so maybe he should be removed from the list...
