As we talked to set 5 winners only,So each winner will take $20 value from total $100.
Here I add some options for this 5 winners.

Option 1:  each winner will receive a private $20 payout coupon.
Option 2:  we send (2pcs Silver) SRM 710 for each winner.
Option 3:  winner can decide himself whether need $20 coupon or 2pcs of 710

I like option 3, so the silver 710 are coming back? That's good news.

Vectrex, I think I will check "username/name/shipping address" on that  "5 winners only".

That's what I meant.

jackyhu wrote:

One more thing,The commission will automatically paid when it reach to $100 amount.
so one payout is for 1 group users,the 2nd payout will for the 2nd group users. and
you don't need to check "The last eligible purchase is the one which crosses the $100 commission mark"

The  list will automatically stop and a second will be generated? Both will be viewable? I hope the 1st list doesn't get lost upon completion.

The payout way which have set in default is to generate a random "$100 Payout coupon",
the coupon code are generated automatically,but no people can use it,we will divide it to "5* $20 coupon", or send $20 value order instead...

Sounds good.

The silver 710 are still not coming back till now.we just enshrined few not sell in public.
Now i think it's a good chance to give them for winners.

710 silver version,we think It will not stop production in factory,as it is a short knife,and many people require to buy.when factory reproduction on it,we can get it in hand the earliest time.

For the (1st group) list,it will empty ($0.00) balance automatically,instead,generated with a "$100 payout coupon" in random (show the paid value under paid tab). but will not stop (not empty balance) for new 2nd list.

Each group list (1 group = $100) ,can be viewable in "Payment History" according to "Payment Date"

I think 1 ticket per person is a good solution.

 

Winner option 3 is great. Some people do not like the SRM710 or have 1-2 - for these winners, the $20 payout coupon is great.

Other like the SRM710 and do not have one. At the moment it isn't easy to get one (I speak about the silver version).

Light up the darkness.

Hi Vectrex, what number are we, I guessed it would be by post number but you have two posts so do we deduct one?

 

Edit: I just saw it counts your first one as 0 I guess so no need to deduct 1, doh

Give it some more time... we need to give everyone the chance to register. When should be the last day for registration? I am busy on the weekend so I would suggest 03/19 Monday  as last date to register... that should be enough.

Very cool. 3-19 sounds like a good deadline. I wonder how quickly it will take to get to the next $100? 20 days for this one. Business must be good Jacky, then again it looks like the big winner was the shipping companies that got ~$545 Wink

I think we have some silent readers here who just used the coupon and never registered. A level of participation 60-80% would more realistic, I think. 

BTW who should draw the numbers? You Jacky? Or should we try to get our admin to do the lottery fairy?

The next $100 commission will keep coming and never stop. now balance is $0.00,
when new order placed,then you will see a new commission (balance) there.

Yes,shipping company is always the big winner,as high international shipping cost.
we normally pay shipping cost (20% - 30%) from sales.

Just as some people said we charge an "arm or leg" at shipping cost.
yes,it's the turth. this is the helpless of all Chinese vendors.
we have no other better choice at all.

Some China vendors tell you free shipping,but the turth is they
hide shipping cost include
d all product value.

If we can do better in near future,the only way is build warehouse in oversea
countries

we ship goods in few month ago,by big container,
then delivery orders for you locally.
it will save a lot of shipping cost and time,and you can have the real "Free Shipping".then.
this is our future direction.

Ok,just waiting 1 week to see if we can get enough registered,I will not do the draw the numbers,it's better if you have admin to do the lottery fairy.

I just do verification on winners,and pay them the earning commission.

A new warehouse sounds like a big project. Good luck with that Smile I have to say your shipping information for orders has always been prompt and accurate.

As for the drawing, I guess it would be best for someone else not participating in it to remove any potential conflicts of interest. They could just use Random org's list randomizer.

I wrote Mr. Admin a PM... hopefully he sees it... his inbox might be over-flooded. But we will find someone... if everything fails I will withdraw my ticket and do the drawing myself.

Thanks Vec. Very noble of you. I think any other of our respected members here could step in and help out as well so you don't have to remove your participation.

How about using the numbers drawn on a national lottery or similar respected method? We could be damn sure of impartiality then, just pick a future date and stick by it, we have Euromillions that I believe covers the majority of Europe, I guess the US has similar?

 

Edit: http://www.thelotter.com/Play.aspx?itemId=1&LotteryID=24

This will generate six numbers between 1-49 on the 14th march, anyone in the world can check and no-one can influence, so far we have less than 30 entries but we will have the sixth number as a spare incase one is out of range or someone doesn't qualify with a fake order number etc.

Well I guess my suggestion was so absurd it didn't even warrant a reply saying no Cry

So what is happening here?

Oh, sorry Jeansy. I think that's not a bad idea at all either. Granted the 14th is over already. I think there are lots of possible solutions. In fact, I wouldn't mind if Vectrex just did it and included himself in the running. Seems like a good guy to me, plus maybe he deserves to win since he came up with the idea Silly

Using lottery numbers is not good, as they are usually listed in numerical order. In our case it means that persons with high numbers would suffer (since the sixth number is always the highest).

Using for example random.org is way better, but requires some trustworthy person to do the draw.

I think the lottery idea is a interesting idea  since it's 100% random and isn't able to be  cheated in any way ..But the down side is what do you do with any numbers that are above the number of participants . or what about participants over 49 in number .

 absurd ?? no I liked it

practical ?? maybe not

Yes I agree it has a couple of issues, for the problem of numerical order I figured we could use the drawn order but I'm not sure how easy that is to look up. Also at the minute the 49 limit is not close to being a problem.

The random generator does seem like a good idea but really unfair if Vectrex does it and misses out

As for Admin doing it,  think that's a lot to ask and infact maybe SB should be given a entry anyway, he has allowed this on his board and he appreciates knifes judging by the review of old-lumens(iirc) gift to him

Another edit: I could give another order number I used as SBs entry, obviously I only used my most recent order but I have several, 6522 is my next previous one according to my emails

take the closing value of the dow jones industrial average on a specified day. Remove the decimal amount. Use that number, the number of participants, and the modulus operator to pick the winner.

(DJIA % nParticipants) + 1 = winner

That's a poor idea. The DOW will almost certainly start with a 1 and the next number will be a 3 or a 4 since it has been hovering around 13K. So that is not even close to random. I am surprised that you knew the meaning "modulus operator" but couldn't see the glaring flaw in this idea.

Maybe you should look up the meaning of a modulus operator.

Haven't heard from Mr.Admin (probably inbox flooded with more important stuff)... but old4570 offered to be a backup fairy... so we are all set. I am a little disappointed that not more people participate, we must have more silent readers than I imagined.

 

This generator from random.org will do the magic...

 

Step 1: The Sets

Generate  1 set with  5 unique random integer in each.

Each integer should have a value between 1 and 29 (both inclusive; limits ±1,000,000,000).

The total number of integers must be no greater than 10,000.

Step 2: Display Options

Each set will be printed on a separate line. You can choose from the following extra options:
Number the sets sequentially
Use commas to separate the set members
Sort the members of each set in ascending order

You can select the order in which the sets are printed:
Print the sets in the order they were generated
Order the sets by the values that occur in them (in this case, you should also consider sorting the members of each set)
Print the sets in random order

Step 3: Go!

Be patient! It may take a little while to generate your sets...

I have more than two orders on the list you posted (not gonna say how many orders or you'll think I'm crazy :crazy:). I'm sure there are also other people with more than one order on that list which reduces the number of participants a bit.

Ok seeing as there was no resistance to my suggestion for a complimentary entry for Admin, I shall enter it now. It will be clear enough, and I state now, other than using this board I have no association with them.
