Yomo's Whizbang Potpourri Extravaganza of a Giveaway!


Recommended Posts

EDIT (19 June 2021):  The contest has been won!  And the giveaway remains in effect for as long as I'm around!

 

EDIT (22 March 2021):  Still in effect, now see the contest on page 4!

 

EDIT:  This remains in effect and will for an indefinite period of time.  Come get some!

 

I have decided to give away a portion of my inf for my own inscrutable reasons.  Here's how it works:

 

1.  You send me an in-game email to @Yomo.

2.  I send you an in-game email with 20mm inf.

 

FAQ:

Q:  Whut?

A:  Yup.

 

Q:  Why?

A:  My own inscrutable reasons.

 

Q:  Can I have more?

A:  Nope, and only one request per global name.

 

Q:  Can I have less?

A:  Nope, I will not give you one sou less than 20mm.

 

Q:  What if I have more than one account?

A:  Do as you will.  Make a hundred accounts!  Only one gift per global.

 

Q:  How long will this last?

A:  Until:  1.  I run out of disposable inf; 2.  I get really bored with it; 3.  Someone seriously griefs me and I stop my giveaway in outrage.  I highly doubt it's going to be the first one.  I'd guess not any time soon(tm), so no rush.

 

Q:  What's the turnaround?

A:  When I log in, I'll check my emails and respond.  I'm usually on at some point most days.  It will not be instant, but generally within 24-48 hours.

 

Q:  What if I send you a tell or a message on these boards?

A:  Please don't.  I'm only going to send 20mm checks to those who send me an in-game email.  I'd rather not get drowned in tells, and it certainly won't induce me to send you inf faster.

 

Q:  Can I tell my friends?

A:  Absolutely.  I'm only going to post this here on the boards, but if you want to tell your friends or SG or whoever is in Local chat, go right ahead.

 

Good luck and happy hunting!

If I send it back to you, then you send it back to me ad infinitum, we can create a perpetual engine to power the whole city (or at least a SG base or two)!

Some of us have been doing this in game for a long time.

 

FYI Yomo, folks receiving 2 million seem to be more appreciative than those wanting lots more. We've also seen numerous players turn down free start up capital wanting to earn it themselves.

This is exactly why I'm choosing this venue and process.  Giving away an amount that seems just about right to get a new alt started seemed to be the sweet spot and frankly a lot more useful than randomly gifting people who had an outfit I liked or said something funny or won the AH lottery.  I've given away over 100bn in game in 2020, and even though I expect my total outlays from this to be much much less than that, I also expect that this is probably going to better serve the population who really needs it the most.

Fuck I've only given away 20 billion and I thought that was a lot. That's awesome.

I’m getting a lot of questions like, “Are you still giving away FREEMoney?”

 

This offer will remain indefinitely open until I announce otherwise on this thread.  Or unless I am killed and eaten by something higher on the food chain than I am.  And I should note that I am VERY high on the food chain.

 

For anyone looking for a more specific timetable, let’s say until Labor Day?  That’s probably the time when I am most likely to be stalked and eaten by a shark tiger.

You always need to beware the wily and ruthless shiger.

Last summer, several times I stood by Ms. Liberty and announced I was giving away 7-digit Inf to the first 10 people to come talk to me. Alternately, I would announce a giveaway to whomever came to talk to me under like level 10 AND had the Isolator badge. That one got very few takers.

Looking for SFMA content over multiple arcs? Search for the following arcs under "cranebump."

Ordinary People [3 parts]=1. Standard Operating Procedure, 2. Hope and Bullets, 3. The Last Full MeasureInvestigation of a series of thefts leads you deep into a vengeful plot that threatens all of Paragon City. Will you and Kings Row's "ordinary" heroes be able to stop it? Leviathan [5 parts]=1. Hollow Pursuit, 2. Hollow Ring, 3. Hollow Victory, 4. Origin, 5. Mantle:  The  assassination of a local politician with national aspirations sets off a media frenzy among everyone's favorite reactionary network, NewsAnon. But the bigger issue is, who's behind it is all? All signs point to the one and only Hollow Point. But, as you soon find out, signs can be deceiving. One-Shots: Of Guns and Asa Ronan: A simple shakedown turns complicated when your employer, the Marcones, are targeted by a metahuman with unusual (and dangerous) abilities. 

COMING SOON: The Tenuous State of Grace (one shot): When the justice system fails to rescue the son of one of its own, Judge Harlon Bean contracts a known villain to do “what must be done,” not knowing that “what must be done” requires everything and all. ALSO WORKING ON: Edit/reconstruction of the Mobius epic.

Contrary to what most people say,
the most dangerous animal in the world
is not the lion or the tiger or even the elephant.
It’s a bear holding a  shark

rampaging around eating everything they see.
