PostSubject: The Deborah donation train wreck - the giveaway    The Deborah donation train wreck  - the giveaway  I_icon_minitimeThu Jul 24, 2014 7:10 pm

Hey there boys n girls

Right firstly I have to wholeheartedly apologize about the huge delay in getting it together with this prize giveaway, but life has been pretty hectic & rather rough for me of late with a forced house move on the cards that I am going through coupled with both my PC's going down within days of each other & the members list being on one of them, it has also taken some time to find something I deem worthy for the giveaway & then get it graded.

Luckily I finally got there.

Right bit of a shocker, but I managed to get hold of Deborah via email & it went back & forth for a while with her/him?? saying they would return all the donations to me to forward back to you guys, sadly as anticipated that never happened, but I let the emails run till she no longer replied & it was obvious that the offers of return of the gifts were nothing more than outright lies, sorry guys, both me Dennis & Matt have done everything we can do legally to try to get the donations back to you but its never going to happen from what I can tell.

It really is a sad state of affairs after all the effort you all put in to making something good happen for what we considered to be a fellow member in need of a pick me up, just bear in mind we did the right thing & you should all feel good about yourselves regardless of the outcome & I would urge you all to not let this affect future happenings, its just a bummer we all got rooked.

I was holding the remainder of the funds that were donated for the Deborah collection until we heard back from her & saw some photos of what we hoped to be a smiling face with some great SW goodness , sadly I am sure we all know by now, we would be waiting till hell froze over for those photos & a genuine thank to turn up.

So after some funds came out of what we had to pay for the shipping of the laptop that was donated to the member that sent it FOC & at their own expense the remainder sat in my account & has been doing for far to long.

I discussed at length with both Dennis & Matt what should be done & after much consideration we decided it would be best to try to do the best we can with the funds & decided a quality MOC bought with the funds should be given away at random to one of the donators in a little giveaway.

I managed to eventually get what I consider a value for money quality MOC that I hope will appeal to all, I then got it in to Steve @ UKG for grading, Steve then really put the icing on the cake by kindly grading the MOC FOC as a little extra for those who so kindly donated.

This is the card that is available -

The Deborah donation train wreck  - the giveaway  IMGP7444_zps1a9a5dd4
The Deborah donation train wreck  - the giveaway  IMGP7443_zps6f74d0df
The Deborah donation train wreck  - the giveaway  IMGP7442_zps3824073e

Postage anywhere in the world will be sorted, I will make sure its very well packed for its journey on to you & hope the lucky winner will get some pleasure out of this, as I hope you all will.

One small thing I ask is that if you are the winner & you don't want the MOC, that you re feed the numbers in to the random number generator & put another number/winner up,so it goes somewhere that it will be appreciated & deserved rather than it just been flipped.

I have put the 48 names in to the random number generator & will announce the winner at 9pm GMT on Saturday.

I know its not what we had all hoped for, but I do hope this little offering will help to sweeten the bitter aftertaste we have all had from this.

Here is the full list of names & the numbers -

1. DUBLINJEFF
2. M4KR31
3. NAUGHTYJEDI
4. STARGEEZER
5. CC4RHU
6. LONGPLAYINGTODD
7. ITFCIAIN
8. DJBIGHAIR
9. TIMBO72
10. BLUEDOG
11. SPOOKEDHIPPY
12. FRUNKSTER
13. AHOHK
14. SILVERWELL
15. TIEFIGHTERBOY
16. WRIGHTY
17. BRAMISTUTA25
18. YOGI
19. DB95
20. GRANT
21. TURKDLIT
22. JEDI_JUNE
23. SEERDRAKON
24. MUMBO
25. GENERAL KAHN
26. CORPORATESLAVE3
27. PSYBERTECK
28. CASWELLBOT
29. FLYCASUAL
30. U.K.G
31. JEDIMASTERMARK
32. DARTH ROSCOE
33. MOMIKE
34. NICO
35. DRAKEJAYR
36. WALKIE
37. KENNETH_B
38. TIGERHAM
39. CRACKATILLA
40. WPLA
41. WBOBAFETT
42. CHRIS.75
43. CANTINA_PATRON
44. G.W.ACRYLICS
45. ASSEMBLYREQUIRED
46. JEFFGLANVILLE
47. CHIKYABBA
48. CRUX

Just remember we did a good thing & still IMO the right thing, regardless of the outcome & we should all feel good about it, after all it's not us that will have to live with our conscience & suffer the Karma.

I am delighted to announce that the time is now now now! =) & two NOT just one of you guys will be the (hopefully) happy recipients of a prize, one of the guys who put a donation into the Deborah (sorry to swear) collection has kindly offered a little extra boobie prize for another lucky winner Yay!, they would prefer to remain anonymous which we have to respect, but a huge shout out & big thanks go to them from me, I don't even know what the prize will be as they are just going to send it on directly to the winner.

So without further a do here are the 2 results form the random generator

True Random Number Generator Min:1 Max:48 Result:36 Powered by RANDOM.ORG Winner is Walkie – well done!

True Random Number Generator Min:1Max:48 Result:1 Powered by RANDOM.ORG Winner is Dublinjeff – congrats!

Watch this space though as when all the dust settles I hope to post some of the background of this sordid affair so you are all privy to what has gone on behind the scenes in regard to us all doing what we could to get all your items back to you guys, with luck it may still happen, but if I am honest I highly doubt it, but wheels are in motion!

So Jeff & Stef, please contact me with your address details & the prizes will be on there way to you ASAP

I am just glad that if only a little some good has come from all this, these prizes being one thing, making a lot of good new friends through the process being the real gold, you know who you are guys Wink

& on a side note, regarding what I said above about please not just flipping the MOC if not wanting it, after more consideration, I am happy for the lucky winner(s) to do so if they wish, if it does not fit into their collections which is understandable, I would like to think that if that is the case that the proceeds, be put back in to your collection though, after all if I won a MOC I would not know what to do with it as I am a baggie nut myself, we just figured a MOC was the safest bet as most of you collect them.

I also know a few of you requested to be omitted from the draw – sorry no could do, as it was only fair that all the names went in the hat the way I see it, hence me requesting if you won & did not want it to just throw the numbers back in the random generator.

Hope this has been a little ray of sunshine in the murky waters guys.

Congrats to the worthy winners.
Super comp Frank with a super prize. Be good to see what Jeff gets too.

Trying  to help out a fellow collector, was a great thing that you, and everyone else involved did, Frank  cheers 
The fact that the person in question turned out to be a swindler, should in no way belittle what a great community we have and we should be very proud of ourselves.
Well done Frank and congrats to Stef on winning a great prize  :clap: :clap: :clap:  :clap:

I've made of secret of the fact I'm trying to sell it as i'm just looking to re-invest the funds elsewhere in the hobby. If I still have it after this weekend I'll be offering it up for trade.
