Howdy, buddies! Some questions like these may flash in your mind sometimes: “How Artkey randomly pick winners for 4-monsters raffle?”; “How they send invoices to winners”; “How they handling shipping?” … And maybe some interesting thought: “How do they know I use clone?”; “They definitely biased Mr.X/Mrs.Y”; “Why am I not win? Am I banned?”... This is the first time we disclose the system we have built so far. A long journey already. **sniff sniff*
SO, HOW DO WE CHOOSE RAFFLE WINNER?
This big “puzzle” is going to be revealed now. Let’s throwback to the beginning, when we first do Bull raffles. It’s very simple:
- Tag all entries from 1 to N according to entry time
- Random.org-pal do his job and magically we got lucky numbers
- Manually sent out invoices one-by-one. (Yup, ONE-BY-ONE)
- Had a cup of coffee and *heavy breathing* wiped my sweat.
All I need to do now is finding our biggest enemies, “cheaters”, and put them in our black-list. Then “random pick”, create invoices and send them out. So whether you think I’m biased or not, it’s not a big deal since I have a whole system to blame for, the mighty RNGod system.
HANDLING SHIPPING & TRACKING UPDATE:
After payment is made, Our system will create an order (you can see it in your “Orders” dashboard)
We designed a button on each order to print label in accordance with DHL & VietnamPost requirements. But simple things don’t happen to Daniel, many people trade stuff right after event ends (Sometimes, I think my mind doesn’t belong to me anymore)
And for the saddest part, both DHL & Vietnam post don’t offer a menu to upload shipping address in batch. So that means we have to create one-by-one again o_o (Luckily, we don’t need to write ppl’s shipping address anymore LOL; we type it instead, and still one-by-one … )
