Raffle feedback: Prizes: Would you prefer that the prizes be only pet related or would you like to see things such as mounts or TCG toys as well?
Personally, I like pets a lot, but not so keen on mounts. Besides, we're in Warcraftpets, not Warcraftmounts after all... :p
However, for that very same reason, it's very likely that many people here will have the pets they want/need, so widening the prize spectrum is a good possibility. Would you prefer to see bigger prizes in longer raffles or to have smaller prizes in short raffles? Maybe a mix of both?
There's room for both, and how/when to do them is entirely up to you! So a mix of both, sometimes standard stuff, other times some special edition raffles. How would you feel if some raffles had region specific prizes? (Mainly Collector's Editions)
Certainly wouldn't mind. As with the previous question, the choice is mostly yours, and having some special edition raffles with extra-rare stuff is welcome, regardless of region restrictions. Activity: Some people are unable to post screenshots - either because of post count or they don't know how to. Would you prefer that there be no raffles requiring screenshots?
I don't mind the requirements, plus I think screenshots can be more fun to do, and to look at, than text.
It's important to me that the raffle be open to anyone, but it might to be fun to do some creative things. How would you like it if you were required to create something in order to gain entry? (This could be poems, drawings, songs - you name it! (please do!))
Definitely would love it! Keeps things more interesting, and at least requires a bit of effort from those participating - which is still a fraction of what you're putting in, Madja! Some might not want to do anything special in order to enter. Would you prefer a raffle that simply required you to reply to the thread for entry?
As said above, I like doing "stuff"
, and I believe it promotes community involvement. Just posting whatever is certainly uninteresting. I've tried a few different activities for my raffles so far. This includes trivia, screenshots, games and creating a pet. Which kind did you enjoy the most? Are there any type that you do not want to see again?
I like creating pets a lot, but I understand not everyone does. In any case, variety equals fun, and you shouldn't be afraid to suggest activities no matter how crazy they may be. Even if you missed the mark somewhat with a certain theme, it'd be entertaining to see what people can come up with Would you prefer that activities always be pet related? Other subjects might be lore, toys, mounts etc. It would always be Warcraft related, though!
I prefer pets, definitely - but as before, keeping things fresh may require different sorts of activities. I certainly welcome different challenges
Some raffles require people to perform a certain challenge or achievement in order to enter. What are you feelings on this?
Depends on how complicated those achievements are. Would be kind of ironic to deem screenshots or participating in forum games too hard, and then require some Mythic meta-achievement :p
That said, currently there isn't so much to do in-game, so it's still interesting to get people out there. Misc.: Would you be interested in joining in-game me for the /roll and, possibly hang out a bit, if this was made a possibility? (EU server)
Since I play on EU servers, I sure would like to pop along, and get together with other pet enthusiasts for a bit. My playing patterns are a bit strange
depending on my RL schedules, but if the time is good for me, count me in!
Are you okay with the currently fairly loose restrictions on entry or would you prefer to see harsher rules in order to prevent double entry?
Hmm... well, obviously the sight from the organizing side differs from the one on the participating side. I don't know if there are double entries (shame on abusers, if there are) but probably making tons of restrictions would make managing it all that much harder. Going through the trouble of organizing a raffle and then having to chase people around to ensure they play by the rules is not fun, it's a full-time job! :p
In my humble opinion, Warcraftpets is one rare redux in the whole internet, with a good, non-toxic community; so I think we can safely keep going with relatively loose restrictions, only taking action if things get somehow ugly (a situation that nobody wants here)
It was suggested to me that I post about my raffles on the WoW forums. This would most likely bring a great amount of people to the site, but would also reduce your chance of winning. How are your feelings on this?
Well, I don't know. At least in the WoW-EU forums, the pet community seems relatively small, and most people I know from there are already part of Warcraftpets. Now, if you're thinking about posting in General Discussion or something like that, that'd likely bring more people to Warcraftpets, but - would they really be pet enthusiasts? I'm guessing not.
Maybe I have trust issues, but for a comparison, I think of it as doing a giveaway on Trade channel, instead of in guild chat. If I were in your position, making such a huge effort to make other like-minded collectors happy, the last thing I'd want to see would be my beloved pets being put for sale on AH by some heartless guys who joined just for some quick free coin. Any other comments that you wish to make to my raffle? Things that I have forgotten about?
The only comment I can add is that you're awesome, and that your kindness is larger than Draenor! (that sure sounded dumb... :p)
