Accepting Donations for Cards Guild Giveaway Program

Postby Sildorian Cards Guild Giveaway Program » Fri Aug 12, 2022 8:27 am

Hello!

I'm not one to ask for cards, but the in the Sildorian Cards Guild, the pickings for the giveaway program are slim, too slim to continue our daily giveaways. If you have any spare epic or legendary (of any value) that you are willing to donate, please gift it to this nation. Your donation will be much appreciated. You can also donate ultra-rares, rates, and uncommons which will be junked or sold to acquire enough bank to gift the cards.

The Sildorian Cards Guild was made and run by Sildoria's own Minister of Foreign Affairs, The Orwell Society (me). It hosts (semi)-daily giveaways with cards of the epic and legendary rarity. Membership is open to anyone residing in Sildoria or its embassy regions. You must be a part of the Sildorian Discord Server to be eligible for membership.

If you have any spare cards that meet the above rarity criteria, please donate! Thank you!

That´s ridiculous - your practically asking for free cards for your very own 'free giveaway'; if you can´t afford to maintain it on your own, you simply shouldn´t do 'giveaways' instead of begging for donations.

I based this off of other giveaway programs, like that of the NScards discord, which is 100% run by countless donations from the cards community. Yes, I am asking for cards - but not for me. I made the guild to promote activity and membership for my region, which it has succeeded in thus far. Your implying, by the tone of your words, that this is for selfless reasons - and it is everything but.

I have already recieved some cards and bank, which goes to show that this is worth something. I'm not begging, I'm asking politely. Yes, I could run it all by myself, but my deck would be run dry and I couldn't do the daily giveaways due to lack of cards.

No, I don't accept donations from newbies because it's too hard on their deck giving away precious cards that could be used for their own gain. Thank you for the offer, though!

That wouldn't be as beneficial as I'd wish. Weekly giveaways wouldn't promote day-to-day activity. I farm just enough to provide decent cards so far, I just need to get self-sufficient enough to provide for myself as well.

Why not make several dozen card farms and move cards from those nations to Sildorian Cards Guild Giveaway Program?

I don't think you understand. I don't like donations from people with few cards (no matter what the card is) because they need them more. But if that offensive to North Jorea, than I offer my most sincere apology.

And in response to the card farming idea: I am already farming for both me and the Guild, and I can't really find time to make any more puppets than I already have. Thanks for the suggestion, though!
