Yomo's Whizbang Potpourri Extravaganza of a Giveaway!

Recommended Posts

i try to join mostly PuGs doin TFs, and if i get the impression someone is new and/or can't afford stuff, i'll send inf & say to check their in-game email. felt like this gets inf into the right hands, but def not as often as i'd like. should i maybe phrase a question that somehow makes new/broke players comfortable in speaking-up, so i get more opportunities to help?

anyway, this is really great & i'm glad to see there are other peeps seeding the population
🙂

Hmm. 20 millimeters of influence. That's .78 inches of influence!

Just wanted to say thank you, again. I had already made 3 million in inf before your infusion. Since the 20M gift I have managed to raise 80M, with a minimal amount of effort.

Bona Saturnalia to you, Yomo!

You exemplify the wonderfulness that makes this game such a blast.

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!

 

 

Free Money is great.  What I need is more lawyers. Darn citizens are suing me for damages caused by me saving them.

Perhaps we need to have them sign a waiver clearing us from any damages as a result of their continued existence.

 

Before saving them.

 

Excuse me, Mr. Vahzilok Mortificator, I need to get a signature from your victim before bashing your head in.  We'll be back momentarily...

Ya know, I have wondered why we were saving the lawyers from the Devouring Earth.  And when you save one, they always say "They were going to change us!". 

 

I'm not so sure that it would be so bad.  Or different.  I mean, yeah, they would look different.  I don't think they would start looking like, say, oh, sharks, or piranhas, or some other predator.  But I would think their behavior would be the same.

 

And didn't Shakespeare have something to say about this situation?

Hang on, you seem to have missed out the bit where you promise to double the ISK inf I send you...

This topic is amazing, and you are an amazing person, though I will not be using this opportunity, I'm already doing well for myself.

 

At least, I thought I was.  Across all my characters, I have perphaps 2Bil. Now I see you with a hundred times that.  How??  Farming is effortless but only takes you so far. I'm alreary quite good at the marketing game but on a good weekend I'll do... 300-400 millions top.

 

Don't give me fish, teach me how to fish! 🙂

When I first got back to Homecoming I was given hundreds of millions to help kit out my first main.  I was stunned.  (still am)  During the Holiday events people were giving out winter Packs like throwing frisbees.  Just show up at an event and get 1-3.

 

I absolutely love this about our community.  The endless free farms, the willingness to help, the willingness to give.

 

I am not doing something as epic as this.  However if I ever see someone in a global channel mention being "just back" or struggling to find enough to buy something I try to connect and drop 10 mil on them.  Pay it forward.

Totally agreed. 

 

I often pick lowbies with my AE farmer and the only pricetag is "Keep me entertained. Tell me a joke, I don't care if it's bad. Drop one liners. Do stuff. RP.  Just don't be a idle sitter; have a little fun while you see the crazy exp come in!"

You would hate me.  When I doorsit I write on my book, or exercise (full covid gym in my room, squat rack and all)

Nope.

 

Squats are better than everything.

 

Would I be able to automate my farming, I'd be squatting with you!    I terribly miss my gym and the glorious squat rack and its olympic bar.

I got the Inspire squat rack (4 full posts, monkey bars across top, dip attacxhments, hooks, landmines, everything) in Nov.  I ordered a padded squat bar from Rogue a month ago.  It finally shipped and will be here in a week.  I used to squat over 300 for 5x5 on a padded bar.  Have worked back up (long Covid break) to 220 on straight steel.  Dang, you feel that thing on your shoulders lol.

Sounds awesome.  You're way stronger than me! 

On my end, the issue is not financial but spatial/physical.  I chose to have two daughters and no one told me how much room space these things take 😉 

 

But hey, my oldest is into boxing so, we do that instead.

 

(Getting real off topic here, apologies!  I'm still curious to know @Yomo Kimyata`s secret!)

I call shenanigans on this my good sir.  I tried and it didn't work.

 

It's ok if you want to keep your secret.  I'll just be there. In the corner. Crying. In silence.
