Default TLS 10th anniversary shenanigans!

I elected to make this poast here rather than Active Events and Projects because there's a lot going on in there ATM and this isn't exactly current yet anyway.

I happened across a fairly awesome retro game/ents store not so long ago and it gave me a bit of an idea. I chatted to Yop about it and he approves, so here be a post:
TLS turns ten in September (two weeks after Pomathon IIRC), so to mark the occasion I noted that a lot of members haven't actually played OG FFVII, and with that in mind I've put together a vintage PS bundle with everything you need to play FFVII as it was back in the day, with the intention of holding a raffle to win said bundle (including postage to pretty much anywhere in the world). I'm thinking of selling tickets for around £5 GBP with the stipulation that participants must be a member for a month or more and have made the minimum ten non-spam posts. This ofc necessitates the launch of said project sooner rather than later for n00bs but also neatly fills in the lack of discussion E3 gave us.

I've outlined more specific Ts&Cs offline and decided that tickets will be purchased via a platform like Patreon, just wondering if anyone's going to shit all over the idea.

Also my dudes, it's ten years of TLS, we really should be marking the occasion moar!

Really, that sounds fucking amazing Mage.

It's weird to think that it's already been this long. I have a hard time wrapping my head around the fact that so much time's gone by. For reference: I one of the first 150 people registered on ACF in December 2003, and that which was 15 years ago. So 2/3rd of my online "lifetime" have been on TLS.

I like this. I like this a lot.

Don't let Carlie or Joe win, though. They probably still wouldn't play it.

This is an awesome idea, Mage, I love it!

10th anniversary, hmm, maybe there should be a party around that time? Like, dunno, voice chat hangout or something. I know many of you are meeting in September already so it could even be like a lovely "hey how's things since I last saw you " aka I really fuckin' miss you type of party/hangout.

Flare we gonna party with B in September yo. Mark your calendar.

Also I’m so into this. I can’t believe it’s almost been nine years since I joined. At the time I felt like such an outsider... it didn’t help that Dacon replied to all my posts with “cool story bro.” Things have sure changed! (we’re still debating whether or not they’re gonna do a FF7 remake, but we do it politely now)

It’s been a hell of a decade. Party down!

Great idea! perfect for a 10th anniversary ..wow I lurked for a lot of time.

If there's will be a party/voice chat (and if I have the courage), this time I will not miss it. It will be fantastic to celebrate all together.

Great idea!

My only concern is like PAL/NTSC etc thingywotsit. Like if someone from overseas wins will they still be able to play? Or is that a dumb question?

Not at all! The console and disc supplied will be PAL and three-pin plug but there'll be a scart lead and adaptors are easily obtained. The actual console has a rear parallel port too so a plug-in cartridge like a Game Hunter or similar could be used (the console isn't chipped).

What would be the best way to purchase tickets be? I mean I think paypal is probably best, no conversion needed and shit.

That would've involved me having to train pidgeons at my place for a while now, and I haven't so

I did have neighbours and a friend's dad that were into that shit though.
