I was just contacted by PayPal and told that this community's raffle violated their TOS, and my account could be closed because of it. So to prevent that from happening, I've removed mention of them from the original post and temporarily suspended the raffle.
I'd like to continue the raffle somehow, but it's clear that I can't just sell tickets via PayPal. So if the raffle is continued, it will be in some other form. I haven't been able to catch rave_andou yet, but I suppose she and I will come to a decision soon.
If we do continue the raffle, all current entrants will still be in the drawing. If we cancel the raffle, everyone will be given a full refund, so please don't worry about that. And if you wish to receive a refund now, regardless of future plans, just contact me and I can do that for you.
-- It makes sense that PayPal would be against raffles, but I didn't think about it before hand (and, honestly, how the fuck did they find out?!). So my bad guys, but man I'm disappointed.
2011-03-29 edit: We've decided to hold a donation drive in lieu of the raffle, and to freely give out items that were originally intended for the raffle. Please see this post for details.
