If you must blink, do it now.


Howdy guys and gals.



How 'bout a little game of chance to make this April 1st interesting? With your precious accounts on the line?

Sharkopath posted:

that idea always blows
Okay.

THE RULES
  1. You may place your bets in this thread. You are betting your accounts, wagering probations. You may request either a sixer, a half-day, a full day, three days, or a solid week. You will not be probated at this time. Read on.
  2. You will be allotted a number of "Tickets" equivalent to your wager. You can only win once but each ticket increases your chances of winning.
  3. On April 1st, in the evening, I will pull five tickets out of a virtual hat. If one of your tickets gets picked, congratulations: you win a free avatar. If none of your tickets get picked, congratulations: you'll serve your probation.
  4. You can only win once. If I pick multiple tickets belonging to the same person, I'll keep pulling tickets until I have five different winners.
  5. In order to keep the high rollers from dominating this contest, one winner will be reserved for someone who bet a day or less. The rest are fair game for anyone.
  6. Along with your bet, please include a cute, funny, cool, or large (but not too large) anime or manga gif or illustration. This will be uploaded as your probation reason. I will veto anything I deem NSFW or capable of crashing browsers. Thanks for understanding.*
  7. DO NOT EDIT YOUR WAGER POST. If I see an edit I will assume you requested a full week but will only give you one ticket.**
THE EXCHANGE RATE
  • Six hours - 1 ticket
  • Twelve hours - 2 tickets
  • One day - 4 tickets
  • Three days - 12 tickets
  • One Week - 28 tickets
OUR FABULOUS PRIZES

As mentioned, five winners will be selected to receive free new avatars. No, you don't need to cash in that offer immediately, but yes, you'll need to remind me if you don't. Mod-uploaded avatars are not beholden to the same standards as user-purchased avatars, and can be a little bigger (both in terms of dimensional constraints and file size) if you'd like, though not too much bigger. As always, I reserve the right to veto avatars that are too big or NSFW. This avatar is for your own account, not someone else's.

You may request a free name change in place of an avatar, if you'd rather.

I viciously peerpressured you into not doing it...

I'm only betting 12 hours because I want to introduce Akashi to all my friends in the leper's colony

I'm not sure why I'm doing this when I'm crippled by my inability to pick an avatar anyway, but the power of gambling is making me want to.

Throw me in for a week.
