Let's do this early, so everyone has a chance to answer, shall we?
Is there something special you want for Christmas? Maybe a sweet little minecraft creeper, or a new lego set? A shiny new 1981 DeLorean DMC-12, complete with a flux-capacitor maybe? Okay, let's be honest, no one has a working flu capacitor for sale, not that I checked eBay or anything. Oops, my geek is showing!
So here's the deal.
While we work on getting our Survival Server online, and everyone is waiting patiently while we do the tedious back-end setup.. okay, that was boring! I'm buying some lucky person what they want for Christmas, or at least contribute towards that goal, so let me explain...
Everyone that wants to participate will need to do a few things to help us. Just follow these simple rules below, and then sit back and wait to see who wins!
1. Make sure you have registered for our forums (this one is easy! You've got to do that before you can post!)
2. Make sure you have attached your Minecraft character to your Enjin forum account.
3. Look at the -very- top of the screen. See that tiny little thumbs up icon? The one with the + and a number next to the "Tweet" icon? If it is gray, click it! If it is green, you're good, move on to the next item!
4. Make sure you have a twitter acount, then find @ShadowCraftHQ and follow us!
5. Next, LIKE or AGREE with this post. You know, the one you are reading.
Finally, and this is the most important part... REPLY to this thread, and tell us what you would like for Christmas.
Now, make sure it is reasonable. Asking for a mill... billion dollars is not gonna happen! I mean, maybe Garage Sale George will stuff your mailbox with 100's, but not Orrin. I mean, you are nice and all, but... No.
Tell us WHY you want it. How long have you wanted it? Will it fit in Santa's Sleigh? Or at least the trunk of a DeLorean? (You DO know the trunk is in the front? Weirdos.)
Make sure you follow everything before you post your reply. We will have someone check all those things, probably one of those Helper Chickens that Creeper Santa is going to lend us for the occasion. I bet it is the one that always eats the cookies and drinks the milk you left sitting out for 8 hours last year.
The last day for entry is December 12th, 2017
The winner will receive the gift they asked for, OR something similar OR an Amazon Gift card. My choice.
The winner MAY elect to have their gift converted to a donation to Toys For Tots, a Marine Corps charity.
If you are selected as the winner, you will be asked for a mailing address OR an email address. I will never share your address or email address with anyone else, it will be used ONLY for this purpose. If the winner is under 18, you should get your parent's permission BEFORE you give out that information. They can contact me if necessary.
Seriously... if you really want to be chosen, choose something that I can realistically afford.
Please allow up to 2-3 weeks for delivery. I'll try my best to get it there fast but I have NO control over shipping.
The rest of the mumbo jumbo...
I refuse to put a lot of legaleaze here. This is a giveaway I created for our most loyal players and friends. Yes, friends are eligible. And strangers. You all have an equal chance. For those of you still reading, I would just like to say thank you for writing a thoughtful reply, and considering posting something that I can realistically afford. If you ask for something outrageous, I may just toss you some ShadowTokens and a heartfelt Thank you. Also, if things get crazy or take a legal route for whatever ungawdly reason, I reserve the right to elect to convert your gift to the "final option" and you agree by replying to this post, that you must accept the final prize option where I send you a penny. Postage due. My choice.
By posting a reply, you hereby agree to everything in the short novella I wrote above.
Good Luck to all, and to all happy posting!
