The Membership Raffle is an incentive for people to become paying members to the Battlestar Wiki. Essentially, we raffle off one or two (or more, depending on the funds available for this, or on the generosity of those backing this raffle initiative) items to our paying members as a way of saying "thank you".

The drawing for this raffle occurs around the last full week of every month.

Prizes

The prizes for the month of December are as follows:

  • One (1) DVD copy of Battlestar Galactica: Razor ($19.99 USD value) OR a $20 USD gift certificate to the online retailer of your choosing.
  • One (1) year extension to your membership to the Battlestar Wiki and Battlestar Forum.

Rules

To be eligible, you must be a paying member of the Battlestar Wiki.

Additionally, you must have a valid e-mail address on file, as this is how we contact the winner(s). If we do not hear back from you within five (5) business days, we'll redo the raffle to select another winner.

Once you have won a prize, you are ineligible to win any prizes for twelve months.

How this works

Basically, each month we get paid a commission from Amazon.com US for the sales occurring two months prior. Since the Amazon.com commissions are now earmarked for the raffle, we know ahead of time how much we have at our disposal for the prizes of the raffle.

So the prizes (including their monetary value and number of prizes) are dictated by how many sales we do through the Amazon.com US store. This means that if we don't do any sales two months prior to the raffle month, the first (and only) prize will be the one (1) year extension to the person's membership.

Disclaimers

We have the right to make any modifications to the raffle at any time, up to an including the discontinuation of this raffle, without notice.
