A competition that involves paying money to the organiser is not a competition but a 'lottery' which requires a licence. FCF does not allow lotterys for that reason.blizzard wrote:ah so now I get it, it's funny money that's involved ....Tollyman wrote:very funny!!!gt6943 wrote:Not quite sure i understand.... do we have to pay
but seriously Tollyman, probably not a good idea to put 'BID" in your contest. Guess a whole unique number from 1 to 100000000000000 may do just as well, I would think
and thos are the odds of Torres' miss ...
Honestly, English is not my mother tongue, but I have no problem with the 'lowest unique bid auction' system (well, it may be biased by the fact I have to speak English on a daily basis).Tollyman wrote:A competition that involves paying money to the organiser is not a competition but a 'lottery' which requires a licence.

'Lowest unique bid auction' is the established and well known term for finding a winner using this method, I think trying to call it something else would be even more confusing.
I have made it very clear in the post which I ask people to read 'carefully' that the money you bid does not actually have to be sent. Possibly a little confusing to members for whom english is not their first language but I don't think it is that difficult.
I have amended the first line of the OP to again state money is not actually required, I hope this helps.
Thanks for your comments
