Paying it Forward

Postby Benwah » Thu Jul 05, 2018 6:48 am

So, as you’ve probably seen from my other thread I purchased the $600 guestbook tier via the slacker backer in addition to the $250 Kickstarter Collectors Edition. My initial idea was to just have both editions and keep one in mint condition. I realise though that these are never going to majorly valuable, and I move around a lot so keeping things mint is not really possible.

So, I’ve decided to give the $250 Kickstarter Collectors Edition away. I was going to give it to a friend, but I don’t think they will truly appreciate it. I want this to go to somebody that absolutely LOVES Shenmue. So I’ve decided to give it away here. All you need to do to enter is respond on here that you would like it. There are a few stipulations I want to put down:

1. I want this to go to someone who actually needs this. So if you already have the equivalent tier or higher please don’t throw your hat into the ring.

2. If you already have a tier and end up getting this, then pay it forward and gift your tier to somebody else.

This thread will be open for entries until August 5th. I will draw a name randomly from a receptacle (I don’t own any hats) and then that person will have 48hrs to email me their info, such as name in the game credits, T-shirt size, and shipping address. If they don’t email me within 48hrs I will pick another name.

To enter please start your post with ‘YES PLEASE, I’M IN’ please don’t feel the need to post how much you need it, as that will not affect your chances. Obviously I can’t easily police who has got which tier already, so I am having to run this on an honour system. So don’t be a piece of shit and ruin a nice gesture.

I don't know how many people would email their address to a random stranger on the internet.
Oh, a sailor's life is the life for me
How I love to sail o'er the bounding sea
And I never, never, ever do a thing about the weather
For the weather never ever does a thing for me!

I guess you have a point there, but how else can I send the things to someone? What I plan to do is fill in the survey with the winners details.

Do it through the Shenmue 500k facebook page. Let one of the admins know what you're doing and see if they can help set something up. Good luck with it
One day we will have our revenge.

Yes please, I'm in. I was only able to pledge $60, but I know a new fan who would love to have my pledge.

I've never used Shenmue 500k, and was wanting to keep it here where I have been frequenting for almost 15 years. (I had a previous account called Benwahwah which I tried to recover back in the day but never got a response from Yama).

If Peter, or one of the other mods wants to reach out to authenticate that I am true to my word, then I am happy to try and work something out with them.

Hi Benwah. Finally made an account on here after being a long time visitor. I think this is a great giveaway and I hope I can win. Yes please, I'm in!

And btw, I'm not worried about sending someone my address lol. If you own a gun, you have nothing to fear really and besides, you can always open a PO Box and use that.

The link to the Shenmue 500k page is here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/Shenmue500K/

Drop a post on there with a link to this topic and see what can be done. If you keep it to here that's fully understandable and I wish you luck in this. Very good of you and someone will be very happy :)
One day we will have our revenge.
