Please at least read the parts in bold and underlined.
1. This giveaway is usually held Saturdays 12pm-4pm ACC time.
Times/dates may vary. I will try to post any changes ahead of events.
2. Orders are accepted when new lists are posted, and only while the event is in progress.
2a. About the Lists:
The lists have undergone massive changes and will undoubtedly continue to do so. At present there are 4 lists in 4 posts.
2b. How many items can I order?
The maximum number of items per order is listed at the top of List 1.
2c. About Limits:
Some of the rarer items are limited. Limits may be found in section headers or in bold within the sections. Special limits may also be posted at the top of the affected list.
L = limit one per order LE = limit one per event L[number] = limit [number] per order L[number]D = limit [number] of different items per order L[number] of each = limit [number] of each item in the section/line per order.
2d. Reserved Items: Items with "(r)" after it are reserved. They may free up again later if undelivered.
2e. Processed Orders and Cancelations: A PT will be sent when your order is ready. Upon sending the PT, your order will be held for 1 hour or until the end of the event. Undelivered orders will be canceled. Your order will also be canceled if you go offline. Please also note that when many orders are received in a short time, there may be a wait (see rule 6).
2f. About Last Orders:
The time by which you must place your order is in the thread title. The time posted is generally 15-30 minutes before the official end of the event.
3. Deliveries to your town only, and only while the event is in progress.
Exceptions can be made depending on how busy it is. Any orders undelivered by the end of the event are canceled.
4. Please flag this thread or at least keep an eye on it in case of reply.
Sometimes I need clarification or to notify you of a reserved/out-of-stock item.
5. Please send a FCR (or tell me if I need to delete and resend), tell me which code to use, what your town and character name is.
6. Regarding backlogs.
When I get loads of orders in a short amount of time, I will post that there's a backlog. Your patience is appreciated during these times. Orders will be processed in batches of 2 in the order received. However, during 2nd orders (see rule 7), priority will go to any 1st orders.
7. About 2nd orders.
Please do not place a 2nd order until I have posted an announcement with an updated list. The time for 2nd orders is dependent upon how busy it is.
7a. Priority: Item and delivery priority goes to any 1st orders at this time.
7b. Regarding Time Shortages: If it's busy and time is short, I may not give you the chance to edit your order. I'll let you know if something is out of stock in the PT. If I get a lot of orders towards the end of the event, I may cut off orders early or even cancel some.
7c. RUSH!: Occasionally I have enough time to hold a RUSH! When this happens, I'll post this with 3 slots. So the next 3 participants can place an order whether it's the 1st, 2nd or even 3rd order!
8. Notes and changelogs.
After the event is over I post a Note. Changes to the time/date/lists and special credit (see rule 9a) may be posted here.
If something changes during the week, there may be a changelog (if I forget/don't have time, I'll try to post when the next event starts). Limits to certain items may be changed, items may be moved to different sections, etc.
9. About donations.
This giveaway is kept stocked by donations from ACC users, dear friends who are not ACC users and me. Unfortunately, because of real life, I am very rarely online on weekdays. The best time to catch me is during the event itself.
If you would like to donate, please contact me via PT or when ordering.
If we are not able to match schedules, I am grateful for your offer!
9a. Special Credit: Donors may also have special credit, which consists of a post outlining which items are donated. The default is anonymous (no post). Also, there are times when I forget to ask and I receive multiple donations which may get jumbled. If this happens and you wanted credit, please forgive me and let me know what you'd like done.
9b. Acceptable Items: This giveaway mainly stocks unorderable items, although certain reorderable items, such as DLC, are accepted. Please be aware that regular flowers, regular flower seed bags, beehives and all seashells (except giant-clam shells) will be sold to Re-Tail if I bother to pick them up. Any other common items may be sold to Re-Tail or donated in turn to the Goodwill Community here on ACC.
10. About the Goodwill Community.
The Goodwill Community is a group for 18+ players. It consists of towns for cataloguing and a free town. To apply, please send a PT to Tressawolf with Goodwill Membership Application in the title. However, please be aware that she is also very busy and may not get back to you quickly.
New thread! And that first post isn't as bad a wall of text as the last thread. I'm afraid I have been very busy this week and only worked on that this morning like 10 minutes before starting the giveaway. I'm pretty sure I covered the major bits...
As for today, it's been interesting. Welcome back to a couple of players I haven't seen in ages! Hello and welcome to new participants! I do hope everyone had fun today!
Thanks as well to a couple of regulars who helped deliver for me to another regular with whom I no longer am able to connect... For no reason we can see. (Stupid technology.) This is as close to having employees as this giveaway can get. Massive thanks!
Aside from some light clean-up, I'm taking a break from Giveaway this week. Been working too hard on what is meant to be a fun little hobby.
Back next Saturday! Have a wonderful week, y'all!
Riesz's Free Pieces Giveaway - Every Saturday (that's the plan...)
Dream of a thunderstorm with Riesz of Llanbobl! (Updated Sep 1)
Hi again Riesz, due to birthday celebrations I missed the event, and I wanted to ask about donations. A lot of items are lying around my town and I decided that, rather than throwing it all away, you could come over and look through it all to see if you can salvage anything for the giveaway. If you're available tomorrow (5 Feb), let me know and I'll open the gate.
