Despite the absolute blast I know a lot of people had during the Bar-be-Que giveaway yesterday, I couldn’t help but notice a lot of people be equally frustrated by quite a few problems, not limited to their internet issues, a lack of being able to choose strains you want to try to acquire due to demand, requiring people (who have a fairly high chance of being impaired granting our medical community) to have quick reactions, and so on. This lead to a lot of people just being disheartened, which I feel is the total opposite point of a giveaway. So I thought maybe we could try to figure out a solution.
I have one idea, which is to steal the way video games already solved this problem by implementing a ‘Roll’ feature you can put on posts with a time limit which will randomly select a winner. But I totally recognize that it’s not reasonable to just make demands of the forum dev team, and I have no clue what that would take to implement. So while it is a possible solution, it still might not be our solution, so I’m curious if there’s any other easier alternatives to dibsing?
Also, fully recognize everyone can give their seeds away however they so choose, this isn’t a debate about the right way to do giveaways, only that we have an option for people who can’t do that.
