    Oh Sapience, Master of the Lotteries, I need your help/advice...

    For several months I have been unable to enter any of the lotteries on a regular basis. My last success was early in March. I can't even log into my home page through the game, IE, or Google. I realize I probably did something very wrong...Far too many toons on too many worlds to play with too many different friends, for example. Though for a long time I could still get into the lotteries. I deleted many of the under lvl 20 toons, though some still show up in my character lists.

    Can you tell us which is the biggest obstacles before I go nuclear on my toons? Number of worlds? Number of characters? Amount of available, or full, bag and vault storage perhaps? Total active or finished deeds as one person suggested to me?

    The lotteries have always been one of the events I most look forward to and would hate to lose the chance.

    Thanks for any help!

    It's not you. The lotteries themselves have been irregular. There have been maybe 3 lotteries since the middle of March.

    Thanks naliia for that info. I realize there have not been many lotteries over the last few weeks, but some kinmates and friends have been able to enter all the ones available over the last few months, but I have only been successful a couple of times. It seemed like when I first began deleting toons a few months ago it let me back in, but then even that was not successful.

    I'm sad. Lotteries will be great fun during the coming festivals and I may miss out...

    If you really want an answer from Sapience (rather than just a platform to vent on), send him a private message. Then be patient. He gets a *lot* of mail.

    There is currently a lottery running.

    I've read about problems with lottery if the list of winning entries is too long. Oldest entries are automaticly(?) removed from the list, so just waiting some time may help.

    He is still in Florida.

    OK whheydt, I'm far from venting. I really have no idea how to, or whether it is ok, to send Sapience a direct message. I'm simply hoping he, or someone else can tell me what can be done to give me access back to my home page and the lotteries. I have no complaints, and I would never use the forums to vent. I already realize the forums/lotteries are not technically supported by Turbine so I want to be careful how I ask. I obviously made a mistake(s), not Turbine.

    And I realize I posted this on Saturday and it is now Sunday night, but I imagined the extra festival lotteries might start on Tuesday and I hoped to have time to 'fix' my mistakes before then. Guess not. Enjoy your vacation Sapience!

    And Thank You Amrundir for a useful hint! +rep. I had hoped it was long enought since I won last that the list would be shorter, but no. I was only entering the highest level toons in the last two lotteries I managed to join and didn't even win in those.

    Almost. He is the Harbinger of Soon. And that actually sounds more impressive than the title I tried to bestow...

    Agreed. Sometimes I have issues with the blue names but I cannot deny that they are very helpful. It just takes time. PM is the best way to go.

    Problem noted and solved. And this is one of the many reasons why I still stick with Firefox. :P

    Oh, if it was only that easy! I originally was able to quickly get to my home page in-game. When that stopped working and only gave a white screen I tried from Internet Explorer and it worked fine for months. Eventually i tried Google as well and it worked as well, only a little quicker. But since at least the end of Feb when I last entered/won in the lottery, I can't get no lovin from the lotteries.

    I dont honestly think the problem is a need for Firefox, but if the powers that be tell me so I'll download yet another browser...lol.

    I just wish I could invoke a bit more sympathy from you guys. This is the lotteries I'm missing out on! Fun, remember?
