Have the comic book generals around here ever considered having the raffle only for the gift exchange participants ?  :popcorn:

It's kind of like an after party or something.  A place where the fun REALLY starts kickin in

Just wondering

That's how it used to be, but I cannot remember the exact reason(s) why it was altered the way it was or exactly what year it was changed.
If you look through the past few years worth of threads, I'm sure it's mentioned in there somewhere.

Here's a few links:
2016 Gift Exchange Sign-Up        2016 Raffle

2015 Gift Exchange Sign-Up        2015 Raffle

2014 Gift Exchange Sign-Up        2014 Raffle

2013 Gift Exchange Sign-Up        2013 Raffle

I did a little reading.
2015 was the first year that the raffle became Pay-to-Play. Before then, if you were in the gift exchange you were automatically entered into the raffle regardless of whether or not you donated a prize. In theory back then, not everyone entered into the raffle would be guaranteed a prize.
If you read through the 2014 threads linked above, you can see it mentioned (lots of drama, too) but it appears that most of these changes were discussed and made via PM.

You commented in both those threads, btw. I'm surprised you didn't remember... :baiting:

lol

Unfortunately there were a few people in the SS contest not donating to the raffle at all. It was usually OK because some people donated more than 1 prize so there were enough, but there were a few problems. This way only the people who WANT to participate do. 

At least that's the way I remember it.

I paid you a compliment in the Flash thread...you missed it;)

I saw it and didn't understand it...or I wasn't paying attention.
