Alright, testing out something new (to make our lives easier, right?)

:crying:

I have a new raffle software I want to try out on the board:
https://www.autoflower.net/forums/raffles/

The idea was to make this more automated, less work for staff, easier for people to take part in the giveaways, and to get some cool products out to people!

For starters, I need to make sure everyone can even see the raffle link. It should show up in the green menu bar up top, or accessible via the link above.

I created a raffle for SensiBox, who is doing some swag box giveaways with us to help try this out!
https://www.autoflower.net/forums/index.php?raffles-details/

If you could all do me a favor, if you can access the actual raffle link and tell me what the stop date/time shows, as well as the draw date/time? And even better, if you see that button to put your name into the raffle, CLICK IT!

It's USA only (they requested that for shipping purpose,) but I think if we had enough support/posts about it (that we can show them,) hopefully we could ask them to expand those options!

Appreciate any help!

If the links DO NOT work, please let me know so I can get the permissions fixed up. We did some testing on the backend with staff (with no issues,) but this is our real stress test, so let's see if it sails smooth or if she's dead in the water (that's all I got for nautical references.) :cheers:

Thanks everyone!

Rules box cuts off text

Can you click into that green box (it's a scrollable text box on my PC.) If not I can find a work-around or a fix I'm sure. Thanks for the feedback brother!

And the entries are going in, I've got several in there already!

Americans only eh.............
The company requested this specifically for this one; but each company that does a raffle will be able to set their own criteria for it (some may not have distribution in certain places, or shipping heavier products can just be cost-prohibitive.) We've had some vendors say "the world's our oyster," so we'll work on getting as many as accessible to people all over the world as we can (we actually had a nice discussion just the other day about a strategy to bring on more UK/European-minded vendors (we have a lot of EU growers.)
