Quote
Dearest DDF Family!

I cannot begin to express my gratitude and thanks for the outpouring of love which I see, I am humbled by my fellow DDF'ers who took it upon themselves to join the fundraising effort and help me in my time of need. It gladdens my heart to be part of such a family, who will go out of their way to help their fellows in need, whether it is financial or otherwise. I will be forever grateful to all of you, to those who donated the prizes, to those who donated money, and to those who made this a reality.

Thanks again!



What's this all about?
If you've been following this thread you may know that a longtime DDF'er who has a young family was arrested for being on the scene at the time of the sting operation.  Many of you have probably even met him in the real world. Several generous DDF'ers have donated prizes to be raffled off to bring attention to the defense fund created on his behalf.

If you are donating from DDF, send the confirmation along with your DDF handle.
Thanks!

Bubbles, if you are able to have it automatically (even manually can work) alphabetize that would make it much easier to keep track of donors.

Thanks again!
Thank you all misadrim for your continuous work!

Lfas25 was in fact updated, but his name was doubled (I guess not just his donation :)

Alphabetization is definitely necessary before we start.

Eta: I don't have the right permissions to do so myself.

Don't you have to select the entire grid or it just sorts that column?

In Excel it would ask you if you want to expand the selection. Here it doesn't and you can't select the locked cells. Looks like he who locked it must sort it.

Filtering on gdoc had catastrophic results for me.

Don't do it.

I am hearing from people mixed understandings regarding the grand prize raffle.

Is it 2 separate raffles with 1 ticket each,
Or
Is it one raffle with 2 tickets.

No way in the world you guys hit 20k. You all talk a good story and thatís about it!
Keep dreaming. I dare all of you to prove this goy wrong.
WE DID IT!!
THANKS MOISH FOR THE PUSH ABOVE 20K!

YOU CAN CONTINUE TO GIVE, THIS IS JUST A MILESTONE!

ETA: Eat your words, CV! :P
CV care to comment?
I didn't say so, but thought that it would get to $20k after 5:00...
This is amazing!!!
@ CV: you failed. We expect as compensation a generous donation, fitting to a count.
Not so fast there. My lawyers are already looking at this and are going to demand a recount. This smells of one large conspiracy against me. 

NC is in charge of the prize and my suggestion was a personalized pencil sharpener. Either way he has a budget of 20.00 so letís wait and see what he comes up with.

- The Raffle will be broadcast live at 11pm est. by BisPro (who is not participating in the raffle) on http://www.livestream.com/ddf1

- We will assign all members numbers for their raffle entries before the raffle and that document will be made available online so you know what numbers to look for. (Bubbles I believe is working on this and if anyone knows google docs please help out as it seems a bit complicated.)

- BisPro will stream the drawing using this website http://andrew.hedges.name/experiments/random/ he simply enters the amount of entries in the raffle (each number entry reflects a person) and gets the winning number.

- Prizes will be pick in order of the prizes listed in the wiki.

- There is no limit to how many prizes a person can win. (even if the same number is picked twice it still counts)

Am I missing anything? Any objections to this raffle process speak now.

Note: The livestream website has a 30 seconds ad so open the website a bit before 11pm.
