    We're back, with yet another bribe to get you to vote voting contest, and this time, the prizes are even more epic! And the best thing? You don't have to do anything except vote like normal to enter!

    How does it work?
    At the 10th, 20th, and 30th of May, anyone with a vote streak over 10 (so voted for every day in that period) is automatically entered into a raffle to win some great prizes (listed below)! Also, anyone who's extra epic and has a vote streak over 30 on the 31st May will automatically be entered to win an extra special prize. Just we can't tell you what that prize is yet. But it's good.

    There can only be one winner per 10 days though, as this is a raffle, not a guaranteed prize.

    How do I enter?
    Simply vote like normal using the links at http://empire.us/rupees. All votes are automatically tracked and your tickets are credited to you in the raffle! You do not need to send us proof of voting.

    On the 11th, 21st, and 31st of the month respectively, the winners will be drawn using Random.org - when that's been done, we'll post the winner and let you know where to collect your prizes!

    We measure everything using your vote streak on the 11th, 21st and 31st of the month though, so it's recommended to spread out voting on sites, as well as vote one day extra than the contest period says.

    PM Jack and myself with screenshots of your streak (after the 30 days are up please) and we should be able to count it for you, meaning you will be in the draw.

    Alex stop editing my posts, it's rude. Plus since it's my post, "Jack and myself" is just Jack and Jack. Like cmon Alex, surely you're able to work that bit out. >_< -Jack

  2. FYI you do not need to send proof of voting. I will be providing list of names for anyone with a 10+ streak.

    Just simply vote and you may win.

    Also, I am verifying the Dirt Destroying clock is a real prize :)
  3. I can't find where to vote on the MCSL, do I need to make an account?
  4. I like it :D

    I would like to ask though runner up prize's maybe this could be opened up for ppl to donate too?

  6. You just need to keep voting on at least one site every day, so if you don't want to make an account on MCSL, just vote on the other sites. :)

  7. You do, it's not too hard though. :)
    It is. :) The runner up prize is a tad bit secret for now.
  8. I've opened donations up. Any donations received will between the 4 prize funds. :)

    Also, we can't really have runner up prizes, since the system tracks votes from everyone on EMC, not just contest "entrants". You're getting 7k if you vote on all sites anyway.

    The 4th prize is kinda like a runner up prize though, for voting for all 30 days. Just we can't really say what it is yet. ;)
  9. Nice! Now more people will vote actually! I think I will get the challenge done, cause I'm at 20 already.

  10. That's good! :)

    Make sure your vote streak is at least 30 on the 30th, or at least at 10 on the 10th/20th/30th - as that's what we're measuring them off - not past vote streaks. :)

  11. I would like to donate 20k to this then, who is going to hold the rupee money pot for me to send to them? :D
  12. This is great and all, but I think I did prefer Alex's voting contest, as you were guaranteed a prize either way.
    But, anything to get the people voting is always good :)
  13. While I'd love to guarantee prizes for everyone, considering we're getting the data on everyone who enters, even if they don't know about the contest, I don't think it would be feasible to pay for it all.

    We tried to balance this out by putting larger prizes into the sections (and the unannounced 30 day prize is epic too - it may or may not be an exclusive item(s)). Remember that you're getting up to 7k per 10 days for voting anyway. :)

    :D If you send them to IcecreamPig, I'll make sure they're sent to the right place. :)

  14. i guess i'm going to have to set a daily alarm on my phone for this awesomeness!
    EpicWeow4, 607, AlexChance and 2 others like this.
  15. So the questions I have are not about the voting, but this dirt removal coupon. Is it for only "Dirt" and not "Grass" blocks? Also are there more of them, plans to make more of them, or a one time deal?
  16. We currently have the only one (as it was made especially for the contest), but I'm guessing there's a chance that more might appear in the future. However, it works in the same was a normal dirt removal (costing 60k) works. The clock is given to the staff, who use WorldEdit to remove the dirt and the grass layer. :)
  17. One of a kind?
    I'd keep it, nobody else is having one of those, part of the reasons why I still have two treasure vouchers and three roses.
  18. First award is on my birthday... I have to do this and get in the first raffle xD
