    When are the Lotteries coming back?

    I've joined back after an absence for a few months but have been unable to enter any lotteries fora few weeks now, does anyone know when they are coming back? Maybe they are off for the festival but they seemed not to be running before that too.

    Mid May?

    Don't hold your breath though.

    There was a lottery 2 weeks ago, one of my characters won it so I know that they are still out there...

    There hasn't been a Lottery since the Tax Refund, and other 2 that I can't recall the name of.

    So it has been around 2 weeks since the last lottery was held. I assume it could be due to the upcoming Site revamp. But I am usually wrong when it comes to these kind of things.

    My guess is that the Hobbit Presents feature of U11 is intended as an automated replacement of the current manually-run lotteries.
    So I wouldn't really expect to see anymore lotteries run, except perhaps "The Last Lottery... Ever" just before/after U11.

    Your guess would be, rounded to the closest possible percent, 218.9% wrong.

    I just got out of a meeting about lotteries and designs for the new system coming with the new community site.
    Trying to make things a bit better in terms of function and design at least on the back end so we have more flexibility in creating them.

    As for the current system. Should have new lotteries up tomorrow.

    I wonder what the percent of my error woulda been. :P I was gonna say that there will be lottos for sure after the community revamp, but I was guessing there wouldn't be any lottos until then.

    Happy to hear I was wrong, and that Hobbit Presents will complement rather than replace the lotteries.
    Three cheers for Sapience!

    If you are going to be kicking things, I think I would prefer to stand back.

    I also don't see any lotteries, can you let us know if you were unsuccessful or if the lotteries are highly limited in the scope of those who qualify to enter?

    Well maybe tomorrow. Hope it is a good one , like Maybe starting the FA in the Mark level lotteries. Could just be a bacon and beer lottery though. If you do another of those Sapience you have to throw in a Holdable mug and a saint pauly girl type costume. Although of course that means a dwarf with blonde pony tails running around, ekkk nevermind!

    You apparently didn't kick hard enough to wake the server hamsters. Perhaps they were distracted or worn out by the many restarts recently

    Anyway, lotteries don't seem to have happened.

    Especially since it's hamsters who power the lottery, not horses.

    If dead horses ran the lottery, they'd not be running much at all, would they?

    Sapience, I realize that there may be technical difficulties. So feel free to mail all my characters the items that would have been offered in the lottery. Can I expect to see them in my mailbox Soon™?
