    After much discussion the decision has been made to let this run another 4 weeks.

    The draw date will be June 24th.

    That should give everyone another chance to get in.

    Thanks to all who have donated so far, time to give a little more and let’s see if we can’t blow that goal away.

    Just so that it is clear for everyone when it is time for the drawing of this raffle @Jon1212 or I will start a new thread. We will post the prize list at the top and then a list of 61 different names, plus 5 alternates.

    The lucky ones can then line up and start making their selections.

    If there is anyone that objects or has concerns about how the drawing will take place they can speak with Jon privately and he will issue them a refund. He does reserve the right to decide on the packaging of said return...

    Is this thread some kind of inside joke? Over two and a half month raffle for moving expenses for someone who was constantly a pain in the ass at this site and openly expresses his hate of it?

    Has anyone called California to see if he is even allowed back? WTF?

    Really? Those who have donated prizes appreciate Jon for reasons different than the opinion expressed^^^. That it's taken a bit longer than expected to reach the goal IMHO speaks more to it following so close on the heals of this community assisting another member. Total prize value is a multiple of total donation sought. So about sixty people have donated prizes and funds. IIRC there are close to 120 $ donations with time left. Those who want a better chance at having their name pulled often make a final donation near the close. So I'm thinking your opinion is in the minority since funding got over $10k a few hours ago

    So does Choice go in order that the names are drawn or is it a free-for-all among who gets to the list first if there's 60 people and the first one gets first pick their prize off the list is that how we're going to do it?

    Typically first draw, first choice - second draw, second choice..., and so on. The process will take a fair amount of time with the large number of items involved..., as in several days. The last big drawing was done in stages to keep confusion to a minimum. Took a while but worked out well over the course of the whole deal.

    Just comparing stats that are readily available at this site, @Jon1212 has four times as many likes, in only half the messages posted as you. Statistically speaking, I'd say by those numbers, his material posted is at least four times more useful and appreciated by folks on this site.

    Further, it does seem that if someone is expressing displeasure for the site, it has more to do with outwardly negative members that would rather argue and stroke their egos, than help people out. Hence, the quoted post ^^^^. Just saying....

    It would be more pro if you just passed the raffle by and acted as if you never saw it. There's no requirements here, just volunteered support.

    Cheers,

    They not only lived, they grew up to take care of themselves and their families.

    It is no secret that Jon1212 was no fan of this website. Ditto for the last raffle recipient.

    I can see unexpected medical expenses throwing someone into hard times.

    A two and a half month long raffle for moving expenses?

    Well.....I hope no one else posts one of our raffles on this site again. The whole "experience" has been just sad.

    Good luck in all things Del.....I hope you never end up needing any help.....

    I found it from this site. I got a notification of the tread from Tapatalk for AS I didn't get the same from *** so I may have missed it, not being a true regular on either site.

    I can only speak for myself, but I really don't ever want to see any raffle that I'm personally involved in posted on this site again.

    There are a lot of really great people here, but it's just not worth having to wade though the piles of dung to interact with them.

    Any of them go to school to become the judges of when, where and what a raffle should be? Or, was that strictly your calling?

    If you don't support the raffle, or wish to participate in a positive way--move along and stop posting negative comments that are attempts at swaying other folks that may want to participate.

    In other words, it is not a display of your best character to keep trying to sabotage the efforts of others in this thread.
