    As many of you are aware Several people are collecting pins for a "raffle" coming in March to earn money to help put DPF on another level. Well, at the same time I was asking people what they would like to see in games and markheardjr came up with the idea of having a March Madness game.

    That got my head rollin and I thought... what if we combine the two! This is what I would like to propose. I would like to get 64 participants (yes I know there are more now in March Madness but for the sake of keeping this even we are going with 64) The price for admission is ONE donated pin for the purpose of raising money for DPF. You will need to IM me with what pin you will use. NOTE: We are going with up to 36 spots! We only need 32 for this to go and we now have that many! If you still want to participate you can join until there are 36 spots taken.

    When your game comes up you will be put against another pin. Everyone will vote for which pin they like the best. The winner will move on in the bracketing and so on and so forth. It will not be stated whose pin is whose until the very end or you lose, whichever comes first. This is to stop popularity from being a factor in the voting process. Duplicates might show up so you will not even know if it is your pin or not in any given game. (a copy of whose pin is whose will be sent to a DPF moderator once I have all the participants and pin numbers) We will work our way through the bracketing until we have a winner. That winner will send in their pin and pick which ever 4 pins they want for winning (*the final 4... get it?) The remaining 60 pins will be donated to DPF to help get the money needed to do the site improvements.

    I will send the pins onto Goofy_Moe so he can incorporate them into his game(s) for DPF. As each pin gets eliminated the person whose pin it was will be listed with the pin number so that everyone will see what is being donated. The pin for this game needs to be a decent pin that you would not mind receiving if you were to pay a $15 entry fee for a game. Remember people will be voting on who wins. No matter what the pin, remember, it will be donated to help DPF. YOU WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO KEEP YOUR OWN PIN. Lets see if we can get some pins for DPF and have some fun in the process! If you would like to participate please sign up here and send me an IM with the pin you will be using for the game. I will use a number scrambler to put the pin numbers in the brackets once I have all 64 slots filled! I will not look the numbers up while doing the bracketing so I will not know which pin is against which one until the voting process starts. We will run several "games" each day just like they do for March madness and you will be able to vote one time for each competition (game).

    I AM OPENING THIS GAME UP SO THAT THOSE THAT WANT TO CAN ENTER MORE THAN ONCE. DPF NEEDS HELP LETS SHOW THEM HOW MUCH WE APPRECIATE THIS SITE!

    Sign ups will be on the second entry...

    I need a number Jodi. When everything is taken we will use the scrambler to see who everyone will go up against in the first round. I can not wait to do this. I hope it fills up fast!

    Thanks for the people that think I'm brilliant! Muahaha, from the devious genius that brought you white elephant exchanges.

    I think 64 is a great goal but you should be prepared to drop that to 32, or even 16. This will take a LONG time to run. If you have 64 pins, that is 63 matchups to vote on. (I think, round 1 is voting on 32 matchups, rd2 is 16, rd3 is 8, rd4 is 4, rd5 is 2, and rd6 is 1.) Do 32 pins and you only have to manage 31 total matchups, which is still alot. Maybe PODM bids can be seeded #1 through n and get bye's the first round? That can help you if you need to work with a non-multiple of 4.

    I say 4 is a lot to choose from for just one player that ends up #1. Maybe to 3 pins for #1, 2 for #2, and 1 for #3 with a concelation match up to decide who's 3rd.

    I'm just spitballing.

    For now I will leave this as it is. The purpose is to raise pins for Goffy_Moes games to raise money for DPF. I will run several games at a time so it won't take as long as one might think. Right now I am thinking that the time limit for voting on each game will be 4 hours, but I might lower that time limit to 2 hours which is more realistic for an actual Basketball game. The game schedule will be posted ahead of time so people will know when they can vote, I do appreciate the March Madness idea and the extra input now but, for now at least, I am going to leave it as is.

    This sounds... complicated. I think I'm just going to send my donation directly to Moe. Good luck with your game, though!

    The purpose of this game is to get pins for Goofy_Moe. If you choose to send them directly to him that is fine. I just wanted to do something that might entice someone to send a pin that may not have before. At least in the game they have a chance to win 4 pins with their donation. The more pins we get the better. The pins already donated are fantastic so I am sure the games he chooses to run will be GREAT!

    Again, thanks to all that choose to donate to DPF to help them get what they need to improve the site. No matter if you choose to play this game or send directly each contribution is appreciated!

    I agree. :( I'm not into sports or sports pools so maybe that's why I don't quite understand this. I will be sending a donation directly. Good luck in the game!

    It's not actually sports or a sports pool at all. The basics are there will be 2 pins put up and everyone will get to vote on which pin they like best. If that pin wins it goes on the next round. If by the end of the voting the pin you submitted is the most voted on then you win 4 pins. All of the pins left behind will be sent to Moe for his fundraiser :)

    Thanks Jodi! I tend to get confusing when I explain things... LOL! I can not believe that more have not entered this game. You can use any pin! It is a donation to help DPF! Also, you never know how the voting is going to go. There are always "upsets" during March Madness! The point of this is to help DPF deal with the outages, increase the mailbox size and deal with all those little things we could improve on. It only takes a little kindness from the members here! This could be really fun and help DPF at the same time. This site has been good to us and we should be willing to give a little back to it! Think about it... where would pin trading be without DPF!

    There are two sites that, I personally feel, put pin trading and collecting on another level. One is PinPics and the other is DPF! Please help to make this site the best it can possibly be! Thanks

    I have opened this game up so that those that would like to can take more than one spot. I am really surprised that more people haven't signed up. I intend to sign up myself as well but I wanted others to get the numbers they wanted first. When my slots come up it will be a NO SHOW game and the person I am against will automatically win. I want to help DPF, I want to show my appreciation for all their hard work on this site, and I want DPF to get even better. If you feel like I do PLEASE donate a pin to this game. It doesn't have to be a great pin, everything helps! Please everyone, contribute!

    The voters will choose. It doesn't matter if it is the same pin or not. It is the voters that choose the winner. Heck the voters could choose to have the worst pin in the whole thing win it is their choice. The object is to get pins to help DPF. I am sending you a PM
