Hey I was just wondering if you guys think doing a mystery gift like every month or something like that for the URPG would be a good Idea?

Like a mod or someone will give you a random gift every month or so?

PS: I don't know if this is the right board to put this thread on :oops:

Might as well talk about this in this thread... seeing as it is already made...

I can see each of the members being assigned a number, and when at the end of the month, a mod can use a randomizer twice, once picking the member who gets the item and two the item that person gets. Items get an assigned number too....

That is just how I see this working if implimented into the URPG.

That, or whoever wants to enter can place a small donation into a pool of money and the randomizer picks the member and the member wins that money... but that is a lotto... so lol XD

That sounds like a good idea. Great for bringing it up Katera!

And Matthew your idea could work though I think people have to be active to be entered in or it will be wasted possibly on inactive members who might come here once every two months for two minutes.

hmm, just an idea but maybe you could lets say do mystery gift with peple but only once a week per person and you get points for going it and save them up to buy stuff? Just another idea. You would post saying who you had done it with in a thread of course and the other person would confirm it.

It can't work:

1. If you gave it to a randome person everytime, others might get upset or something.
2. If you gave it to most dedicated it will definatly go and move around between 3-4 people (Me, Dap, JT and Jack and maybe a couple more)
3. If we gave it according to posting, well, there are more dedicated people than those whom post in URPG like Jack for example in spite of his last lack of activity due to computer problems.
4. I just don't like it because it can be unfair to get things without working hard on them, even lottery takes money from you and legendaries are obtained through hard work.

For number 3 I meant those people are active 2-3 times a week. I do not meant those who aren't on for months and do a couple of post and don't come bck untill nex couple of months.

Obtainble thing will be items.

Yeah.... it is unfair, but Mystery Gift is random and since when was Random fair?

Plus it doesn't need to be cheap... it could be, like 1000$ or a Potion as a prize... (Keep it to low/medium leveled items...)

Yeah like Jack could put like 5 or 10 potions and then 5 or 10 ethers and then just one good Item in a hat on paper and thats an odd of 20 too 1 so theres not a very good chance that you will get a good item its just down to the hat and luck not even luck just the hat and Jack or who ever does it. :happy:

The thing is noone uses items like potions in the URPG, they should really be taken off the Pokemart...

Oh ok?? what do you mean, you can't use the item or what?

You can agree them to be the battle rules beforehand but noone chooses to battle with items because they extend the battle too long and there are other things worth buying such as pokemon and tms.

i know... potion = bleh right now. but when the park gets around (sigh...) then it will be more useful.

as for this mystery gift idea... i like it. but not as a every month or so thing. maybe a one time deal. i can definitely see this going somewhere. though, not right now, maybe later.... summer?

Or it could happen each major holiday... or season.

Yeah that could also work well you have a good mind Matthew.
But its really up to jack.

IMHO, this shouldn't be allowed, unless the items can be purchased in the Pokemart. Basically because special items should only be obtained vía a tournament or a contests. And, what if the person that wins the special item is someone who leaves the URPG?
If you're going to Mystery Gift items, use TM's, HM's, and Pokémon from the Mart as the prizes.

I know I'm a bit off topic here, but I promisse I'll get to finishing my Park sometime soon. At least I know I'll get it done eventually when I'm not bsuy, :tongue:.

Yeah thats the coolest idea to have pokes or TMs & HMs great.

Huh what park? :oops:

If we do mystery gift we should limit the power tho. We can't have like 10 pokemon be given away every week.

Jack of Clovers

well, it wouldn't be every week. maybe once in a while (but more often than tournaments). i'd get working on how this should happen but i have other things to fix around here first. unless someone else want's to give a crack at it.
