Post subject:  ToO Birthday Bash Cash Giveaway Extravaganza!

It was a hit last year so I decided to make it a yearly event!

I am giving away money to everyone who posts in this thread today! Not just my traditional penny, this is a special day so it gets a special reward!

This day is a celebration of every single person on here, so I'm not limiting it to a number. Everyone who posts until the timestamp hits midnight will get a share! (Multiple posts will not award multiple shares, however.)

This site has been so special to me for so many years, it's allowed me to interact with so many amazing people I never would have known otherwise. Every one of you make the ToO the amazing place that it is.

Happy Tenth Birthday to The Town of Odyssey! May we have ten more! (And more after that of course. ;) )

Not anymore, that could only work the first time as now people know what this is.

No, from now on this is a genuine celebration for the ToO's birthday and has nothing to do with April Fools.

I'm not 100% convinced of that, but I have nothing to lose, so here's my post. Happy Birthday, ToO!

Happy B-day Message Board I've been a part of for the last week! Is this a joke?

See, you have to think about whether or not bookworm is the type of person okay with lying about it not being a joke because it's April Fools..

I shall guess: 10 cents instead of 1 because it's the 10th anniversary!

There seems to have been a misunderstanding here. Some people apparently interpreted my post to mean this event was going to be some kind of big giveaway. I’m not entirely sure where this notion came from, but I think perhaps my assurance that this wasn’t a prank this year was misunderstood. What I was saying was that the giveaway from last year was being repeated, this time without any pretense. What people seem to have read was that this year it would be the big giveaway teased last year which turned out then to be a prank. In other words, saying this one was not a prank meaning it was going to be the original giveaway now, instead of meaning what it did, that it was a straightforward repeat of last year’s giveaway with no misdirection at work.

I never intended my post to be misleading, nor did I think it was. This giveaway is the same one that was held last year, except it is intentional this time. I never thought people would assume this was going to be the original prank claim of a major money giveaway. I even linked directly to last year’s thread to be completely transparent, thinking people would see what happened before and realize what was happening now. I didn’t expect any misunderstanding in what I was doing here and was caught off guard when there was.

So apparently this turned out being a prank after all if you thought you were getting big bucks, but it wasn’t through subterfuge on my part, I was completely upfront, it was your fault if you were fooled. :roll:

Woody, T.S. (myself), Sameria_ZX, Penguin, Belle, PaulaJarvis, Moontide, Mr. Whit's End, Whitty Whit, Tikvah, and JCGJ get 2¢! \:D/

No one saw that coming. :p You should at least give away the money you make from your posts in these threads. =p
