    Sonic Mania Raffle

    I got a spare copy of this game that would normally cost $20. This is the Steam version.



    I can't recommend this game more. If you enjoyed the 1990s classics it's a must-own and still worth getting if you're a fan of retro in general or you like platformer games.

    The rules are simple. If you're already a Nexus member and have one post or more, write at least one post outside of this thread (which can be a reply or a new thread) and afterwards reply to this thread for your raffle entry. If you're a new registrant or you're a cherry (zero posts) you just need to create a thread. (This could be your introduction at West Virginia Spaceport, totally up to you.) Post more if you like and get involved. And like current members, also reply to this thread for your entry.

    To keep things fair, one entry per member. Winner will be decided using a random number generator. This closes on Wednesday the 9th of October. Best of luck.

    I'm not entering, I just want to bump the thread and encourage some participation. I know the cutoff date has already passed but with the weekend coming up perhaps some more people will see this and the due date could be extended? Idk, I just hate to see goodwill like this go unnoticed.

    Don't worry, it ain't the first time. I've had Outlaw Star giveaways in the past that for some reason or another people largely ignored.

    I guess to a degree I can understand why this giveaway didn't yield, as Sonic Mania has little to do with the forum's topic. This is just me not knowing what to do with my spare key. I guess I'll see if I can sell it.

    In the case of Outlaw Star merchandise, now that is something that's baffled me for years. Only a handful of people entered. I'd have always jumped at the chance to snag a very easy freebie, more so if it's one of my favourite things.

    Come to think of it, I rarely see giveaways these days. Because like, totes man, goodwill is soooo 1990s!! (What was I thinkin' when doing these?)

    Those giveaways were my attempt at generating considerable traffic. After all, it was a relaunch of a forum that had closed three years prior. Given the fact I didn't have access to my previous means of finding Outlaw Star fans (primarily YouTube as it's sucked for this purpose for many years now), in order to accomplish a good start I figured I'd need to do something big. Spoiler alert: it didn't really work. While the competitions were running for obvious reasons there was a reasonable amount of activity. As soon as the competitions finished...



    Eh, pretty much anyway. Then soon enough activity flatlined again (which was most of the reason I closed Outlaw Star UK in the first place) for around a year. Somehow after much effort I managed to get things movin' again later in 2016. While I don't think we've ever achieved Outlaw Star UK levels of activity (which wasn't huge in any way) on Nexus, right now it's decent considering it's 2019. Plus, with everything great that's coming I'm hoping that we won't face another collapse. (Bet I just jinxed it.)
