I'm actually really sad that this failed, and I'm surprised considering what prizes were available. More than just one deviants would have earned at least $5USD and at most, $10USD. But it has become clear that that doesn't matter to you. That is really too bad.

I started back on March 11th, so I gave plenty of time. Back then, I have 60k approximately. Knowing how many people on DA there are, I expected people to jump on it, especially since I would be giving a prize of real money with only faves, watches, mentions, and visits as a way to earn it. In all, only 1/3 of the qualifications were met, and that is very disappointing. 

Now I know not to have events like this. I guess real money isn't important to people, and that's fine. It was a once in a lifetime event, so whatever. And since I have NO ENTRIES on the contest as of this time, I'll be closing that, too. Unless I get 10 comments telling me to keep it going by October 20th, two days away!

It is up to you! For a recap, you have this.
  • I need to reach at least 100,000 pageviews on RTNightmare. Honestly, I want to see if you guys will do it. And honestly, I might bump up the prize if you do. Remember, giving pageviews literally only takes a single click by multiple deviants. You aren't doing much! I currently have approximately 61,500 pageviews, and the average for pageviews a month is currently over 2,000. I have no doubt you guys can do it if you work together! 
  • You must be a watcher of mine to be eligible to win. You can spread this this journal around to your friends. I don't care.
  • I need at least 100 faves on this journal. Seriously, I don't care who faves it (even if you aren't a watcher). 1 favourite from 100 deviants and you're good.
  • :star:I need at least 10 DIFFERENT deviants to share this by poll, Status, or journal. Yeah, only 10, but all different deviants. But the more you share, the more likely the outcome of this thing working. And for those who share more or make more than one journal or status, you will be more likely to win something.
  • If you fave and/or share, comment below with the link to the share or just comment 'faved'. That will make it easier for me NOT to forget that you did so and give you a better chance of winning. This is not a requirement, but if I don't see a comment about what you did, I might miscalculate and I'd rather not feel like I cheat you by making that mistake. I have mentions, but I cannot guarantee that will be enough especially since I do not know if polls are included in mentions. (I'm telling you, miscalculations might happen. ^^;)

"Real money" "5 dollars"

A whopping five dollars. If you're expecting people to do work for you for a chance to win that much and are angry they aren't, then you're, quite frankly, embarrassing yourself a bit.

I wasn't asking for art. It was only faves and stuff like that. Doesn't require much effort. The contest did, but I was hoping to not do that. 

Whatever, I shouldn't have to justify just because of the greed of others. "Only $10 in exchange for stuff that'll take literally a couple minutes if we work together. No, that's not good enough. Extra $5? Still not enough! More more!" 

$10 because of 10 years. Well, now it's $0. Because greedy people don't deserve if they don't take what's already set in front of them. Beggars can't be choosers. So don't be a brat about it. :|

I just checked and your pageviews are over 75,400, so your request is working! Personally, I'd like to hit 300,000 pagviews!

I noticed you had a deadline, but you did get a lot of pageviews even if you didn't hit the max goal. I have an account that is 13-years old with less than 80,000 pageviews, and WDWParksGal-Stock I started 9-years ago when I realized having stock here would be too much has less than 103,000 views.

I didnt really know this was happening, but it honestly makes sense why it didnt work out, ya know? ^^''...?

Most people on here are.. well, young, from ages to 13-16 on the majority, no way to receive real payment to care about it > . >
Heck i know i probably wouldn't care around that age either, only thing id be hyped about getting is if someone drew my OC <xD'''...

And response to your personal contest, I feel like you probably should have offered more, only 5 dollars and a llama for a nicely written or beautifully done artwork of your character, nice artwork would go around 75-85 dollars, maybe 60$. (not too sure about the prices on written pieces tho)
I know it sounds nuts but its true >_<''

Why not commission an artist instead of a contest? they'll get the job done and if it's a good/reliable person, they'll give you a great piece for every penny worth it!

The reason it was $10 was for 10 years on DeviantArt. And the money could have been changed to :points: if the winner had chosen. As for the contest, I was planning on adding more prizes only if I got enough excitement. Not sure if I mentioned 'more to come'. I usually do. It would have been an art prize or something. 

Good to hear that perspective. Thanks.

i see, i guess people dont care for points either? im sure most people dont know what to buy or spend with points to begin with <xD
To be honest, points are just a nice sub-prize for contest and the real "meat" of winning is an art prize from a good artist  (in my POV atleast ;; w ;; )
Point are just nice to have around but if you have alot it's like "what do i do with it? .-. ? " cx>

If anything, probably save those point prizes/llamas/artwork for a future contest, maybe ask people if they wanna contribute for the "jackpot" prizes of 1st, 2nd, and 3rd  xD Would love to see any creative Seasonal events in the future

and No problem!
Best of luck to you and your goal of page views and other endures!

Yeah, I realize I may not know what people want. But at least I don't bitch at people when it's 'only $10'. People don't realize that not only was I going to give more than that provided goals were met, but I didn't have to do this. I have never seen such greed. It makes me even more disappointed. :| 

I said it before and I'll say it again: beggars can't be choosers. You wanna be greedy, fine. But then you'll get nothing.

It was the way you phrased it. It sounded very aggressive and I deal with people being aggressive with me all the time, so I get defensive. Sorry if you meant to help; it came off differently and I'm very tired from people irl pushing me too hard, so my judgement is often clouded.

Sorry for late reply! Life - 'nough said!

Thank you for your kind words! My writing skills have definitely needed improvement, and I think it is happening slowly but surely. Shadow Magic was definitely crap when it was first written as A Dark Adventures, with characters that were so under-developed, it was cringe-worthy now that I read it again.

But I am glad that I can inspire people with my work and passion. I definitely think I am passionate, not always in the smartest ways, but yes. Thank you for sticking around! It means a lot!

I've read this journal. And I still don't get what this is about. Why a race? why 10 years? 
Is this a raffle? Because it looks like one. 
Reply
:iconrtnightmare:
RTNightmare Featured By Owner Oct 19, 2016  Hobbyist General Artist
It's not necessarily a raffle, but I guess it could be one kind of.

Basically, I joined DA 10 years ago (2 days ago) via another account and this event was me celebrating that. I wanted to give a bunch of lucky people $5 or $10 for the occasion, but in order for it to be achieved, certain qualifications needed to be met. Only one of them was by the time the 17th (the deadline) was met, and therefore, the event failed. 

I'm sorry for the spam, I just really wanted this event to succeed, but I guess it just wasn't as important to others as it was to me. Sad, but whatever.

I see, maybe changing the title for something different would help get more clicks. The word Race sounds like a competition. 
I imagine most people looking think they have do make something in a short time and don't even check.
