ToO Birthday Bash Cash Giveaway Extravaganza!

Postby bookworm » Tue Apr 01, 2014 12:16 pm

I’ve been really inspired by Catspaw’s gift giving idea and decided to be extra generous. In addition to this offer, which still stands, I will also give away money to everyone who posts in this thread today!

I know what you’re thinking now. (And so does everyone else by now :P ) ‘Yay, I get a penny!’ Not today folks! I know that’s traditional for me, but this is a very special day, we need to shake it up.

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.)

I’ve been saving my cash for a special occasion, and I can’t think of a better one than this. 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.

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

If I post first, do I get the biggest share? ;)

Thank you, bookworm. This is a good idea. And happy 9th birthday, ToO!

That wouldn’t be fair, but it’s a nice try. ;) The shares will be equal for everyone.

:shock: bookworm is giving away more than pennies. :thud:

Great idea, though. \:D/ Happy Birthday, ToO! May you still be around for years to come. =]

We need AE to come and make this an official holiday.

April 1st shall hereby no longer be known as April Fools Day, or the ToO's Birthday, but bookworm Gives Away Nickels Day!

(See what I did there? Nickels are the second smallest coin =P)

So you've been saving money for a special occasion, but didn't have any in mind, and so never fund any election campaigns...

Happy birthday, ToO! Even though I've only been a member for about a year and a half, I stalked the boards religiously for several years prior to joining, so this really feels quite momentous. :yes:

So, this thread was originally supposed to be an April Fools prank and I was going to come by today and just laugh and not give anything, but as people started leaving such nice responses I began to feel that would be in bad taste because it would throw suspicion on the whole thing when in reality only the money part was a joke and I sincerely meant everything else.

Therefore, to show I’m a decent person I will in fact honor the promised monies to the posters. We’ll just adjust the focus and say that the impression of receiving big money was the prank.

T.S. (myself), ~JCGJ~, Jehoshaphat, Whitty Whit, Woody, Knight Fisher, snubs, Marvin, Dan, and Petrichor get 2¢! \:D/
(I’m such a nice guy I’m not only paying out when I originally wasn’t going to, I’m paying more than I originally planned just to keep my promise that this time it wasn’t one penny. You’re welcome. :cool: )

I must say, though, well played. Very well played indeed.

*whisper* I had a feeling it was fake. I wake up on April 1 and believe hardly anything that I see on the Internet :p

I’m hurt by the tone of this post and by its false accusations.
First of all, I never said I couldn’t think of any good reasons, I said I couldn’t think of a better one.
Second, it is completely and utterly false to say I’ve never funded any election campaigns. You wouldn’t know whether I have or haven’t in the first place, and in fact I have contributed funds in the majority of elections I have been active for.

I wasn't here yesterday! :( Oh well.... :(
^AIOluver^

Who am I? I'd rather not answer that question, the real question is, "Who are you?". Right now I am trying to think of something witty to put here.. I might not find anything, but that's fine. This block of text should be fine for a signature. Wait, are you still reading this? Why are you reading this? Stop. Seriously.
STOP.
This sentence is true.
The sentence above is false.

I dare you not to read this.
Hey! I said not to read this.
Maybe if I talk like this.
Wait, you still see me? *sighs* I give up.

Haha =D> Good for you for turning the prank into a kind gesture. I guess you could say the joke was on you since you did end up giving people money. :P
