I don't think it's all too bad of an idea...

But I doubt I will partake in it.

Be prepared for a barrage of "SCAM" /shouts comin your way when you advertise anything.

Best of luck, maybe it'll work out.

playing devil's advocate here: Wouldn't this be against TOS? and well you may get alot of /sh SCAM like Drano says.

i say just create a gambling ring using /random. Have like a poker Friday nite but using /random with entry fees of like 100 gil per each drawing. Almost like a lottery.

But if it something where you send RL money, yea i think it maybe against TOS.

I think what he meant was.. you pay gil for a lotto number.. and then numbers are later drawn (at a time which would be given) and the players would log onto this website to check their numbers to see if they won.

I'm not too sure how this would work.. because you'd get a lot.. and I mean A LOT of people that would try to tell you it was their number..

You'd have to record yourself who you gave the numbers to, and all that jazz.

Then again.. this sounds like the thing Feiwonghong of Remora had going on his old server... he ripped a lot of people off with this, but perhaps you're different, and actually trying to do something for the server. Because I do agree with the reasoning for starting this up.

This could very well be a good thing for Siren.. or it could be a very bad thing. We'll leave it up to the rest of Siren to decide.

IMO, it's not a bad idea, but based on the lack of trust I give even my closest of friends, I would certainly not partake in it.

Yea, its kinda hard to do, but i think if you do pools of lets say 10 groups of 10 and in each group they will monitor what you get in /random. then the leader in each group figures out who has the highest or lowest number. and he/she or if a tie they win. you can also set 1st 2nd 3rd place each drawing. if you figure there are 10 groups of 10 with a entry of 100gil each drawing, thats 10,000 gil pot. Then you can break down the drawings like 1st gets 6,000gil , 2nd gets 3,000gil and 3rd gets 1,000gil . Just an idea.
