    COMPETITION UPDATE


    In searching for the best way to select a winner for the Gold Rush Socialite 2012 competition, the following items have come to the attention of Arkadia Studios:

    a) Selecting a winner randomly from all page "Likes" is, contrary to the findings of our preliminary research, a breach of Facebook Terms and Conditions. When choosing a winner, that winner must be chosen from a specific competition entry.
    b) An admin of a Facebook page is only able to create a list of a maximum of 500 of its fans at once.

    This has led to the decision to use a third-party app called Wildfire, which will select a winner at random, from those who enter the promotion specifically.

    We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause, and are making every effort to ensure that those who have already "Liked" the page as a result of the Gold Rush Socialite 2012 competition, find out about the change. This will include making a post at our Facebook page.

    To give everyone a chance to enter correctly, the competition is now being extended until 23:59 CEST on the Tuesday the 9th of October 2012. Instructions for entry are at the bottom of this post.

    In addition, the opening post of the Gold Rush Socialite 2012 thread has been updated to reflect the new rules.

    If you have any concerns about this change, you are encouraged to email Arkadia Studios at community@arkadiastudios.com.

    Good luck!

    INSTRUCTIONS:
    To ensure you're in the running for the Alienware X51 Desktop, you will need to do the following:

    1. Go to www.facebook.com/planetarkadia and "Like" the page.
    2. Go to the competition page here, click "Enter Sweepstakes" and follow the prompts to completion by 23:59 CEST on Tuesday the 9th October 2012.

    Click "Enter Sweepstakes".

    I have an easy solution...STOP USING FACEBOOK!!!!


    Someone pressing a like button is akin to your pet goldfish telling you it loves you.
    They both have the same effectiveness. It is only good in concept not reality.

    When yer goldfish tells you it loves you..the people who keep track of strange facts and happenings make money off it AND your picture gets posted into history for that happening.. Ripleys believe it or not I think its called. When some one posts a like Mark Zuckerberg makes money AND you get assimilated into the data mining base he does it with.

    In the end it does not help EU/ Planet Arkadia at all when you constantly have to appologise for yet another facebook screw up.


    (sorry Cyrus this is not about you at all mate)
    With all the Bullshit in game I wonder how long it will be before MA comes out with a Tampon (L) simply because I have a female avatar.

    I completely disagree with you and think that Facebook can be a useful tool to help promote the game. Just because a disproportional amount of Entropia players dislike using Facebook (from what I've seen), doesn't mean that it automatically becomes a bad platform to use. Facebook has what, almost 1 billion users? It seems silly not to promote at least a few contests through there, with the hopes that some Entropia users pass along the message to their friends to check out the game. At the least, it's a very public place and chances are that people will find out about Planet Arkadia through Facebook in the future, whether it be through contests or another matter.

    Have had same thoughts about that but found a solution (for me) to be prepared for such things.
    Avatar account with no RL relation, virtual machine seperated from all other stuff, done. If not want to setup a VM for that use seperate Browser *only* for FB and kill *all* cookies after each visit. Only thing they get from you is your IP, but in my case I can get a new one every minute if I want.

    This helps me to not longer become angry when something I like (by example Arkadia..) starts to make use of FB.

    Im not a facebook fan and choose not to use it, but I have to agree that if you are advertising a game, use any outlets available. Good luck to the contestants!!
