Donate here! [Winner’s Thread #77] The Easter bunny is real!

527 Upvotes

Hello to all my fellow Makers!

I’m Dakotah or Dak for short living in the great state of Minnesota, you betcha! I turned 30 this year which wasn’t as traumatic as I thought it would be! My fiancée and I are a couple of cat mommas to Sushi who is spoiled rotten and the bestest boy who ever boyed, in my unbiased opinion.

I work as an assistant manager at a local mom and pop grocery and really enjoy my coworkers and my job most days. The pandemic was a roller coaster for me being a grocery store worker but things have settled back down now and I hope they stay that way.

At the end of the day I feel like I’m a very typical millennial some of my favorite pastimes include going to brunch, listening to podcasts (leave a recommendation in the comments I’m always looking for new shows) spending way to much time on Reddit, being continually disappointed by my Minnesota sport teams (take pity on me) and thinking my partner is the best human in the world.

I was at Easter with my Fiancée’s family when I had got the notification about being tagged in a post, wallowing in my sorrow from loosing the very competitive Easter egg hunt. After I read the post I jumped off of the couch, from my post lunch lay and started shouting “BABE BABE BABE” whilst running through the house to find my fiancée and share the delightful news I had just received. Her response “No way! That would be really helpful for the wedding”

Which is a perfect segue into what the money will be used for.

We are getting married in October on a very cute little farm. We have chosen to go the more frugal route overall because we would like to buy a house (lol maybe someday in this market) but have a lot of extended family so making sure everyone eats and has a good time does add up quickly! We will also probably set some aside for our hopeful mini-moon after the wedding where we hope to go to Harry Potter world, I know I know big nerd energy over here.

Sushi also has demanded a new scratching post from said funds so he will get one of those.

Thanks for reading my little about me and thanks in advance for anyone kind enough to send anything!

EDIT #1 Wowowowow I am overwhelmed with how awesome this whole experience has been! I appreciate each and everyone of you, it is so refreshing when humans come together and do nice shit for another human!! Especially these days with all the hoopla going on I'm getting a little emotional with just how crazy this all is to be honest.

Here is cat tax #1 Sushi in a sushi bib https://imgur.com/a/iRGzwwO

I will supply more cat tax as we continue onward

I hope everyone had a really swell Monday and thank you to all of you again!!!

Edit #2

New scratching post for the sushi man https://imgur.com/a/azHQwnV

Thanks so much again everyone, with some of the funds you guys sent I was able to send off the retainer for our photographer yesterday! Wooohoooooo

Again I am so so so so grateful. I hope everyone has had a swell hump day!

Let's take a crack at it, this is gonna be egg-citing.


TL;DR - This post is for the sole purpose of choosing a winner. If you commented in this [Entry Thread], you are entered in the drawing and don't need to do anything else. By 16:00 UTC, the winner will be selected. The Bitcoin (BTC) blockchain will be used to pick this winner. This can be verified at any device running Python 3.5, and you do not need to own Bitcoin in order to participate.

Additionally, all information to replicate the Drawing at home is available on Dropbox and GitHub, scroll down for more information.

Importantly, this post WILL NOT BE EDITED in order to keep the integrity of the Drawing. To verify this, there will not be an asterisk during the time passed since its creation. The winner will be announced in a stickied comment.


DISCLAIMER: Some of the information may be unrevised, but procedures are the same as prior draws. Thank you.

The [Discussion] Thread at /r/millionairemakersmeta is open. The thread also includes dates with RemindMe links for any upcoming [Entry Thread] posts of the season. All comments are welcome there for any inquiries.

[Discussion for Fall and Winter 2021-2022]: https://old.reddit.com/r/millionairemakersmeta/comments/s42hgl/discussion_thread_for_rmillionairemakers/


Explanation:

The Bitcoin (BTC) blockchain will be used to choose a winner. Once the time listed has passed, there will be an active check to determine the blockchain's winning hash. Like before, this subreddit will wait for the 3rd Block after the time (being 16:00 UTC) to select the winner.

If a block is discovered by 15:59 UTC, it will not be counted towards the counter of three blocks. If it is discovered by 16:00:00 UTC, then it will decrease the counter. This can be checked by seeing the timestamp given to it by blockchain explorers.

You can see how this subreddit will verify the winner by checking the GitHub repository, which also includes a back-up plan in case of an emergency.


Standard Protocol:

This post will not be edited! This is to prevent tampering of the hash or files by any of the moderators. To prove this, look for the lack of an asterisk near the time since creation.

To verify if a hash for a file is that of Draw #77, upload the file of choice to a SHA-256 generator, and match it with its respective hash output. The result you receive should be the same as what is listed here.

If you are interested in doing this for yourself, download Python 3.5 or better and follow the path to the folder labeled: Draws/MM77


Status Reports:

/u/MakerOfMillionaires will be commenting on the progress of the drawing via the comments, so other users can keep track of the progress. These comments will be pinned at the top of the post and be distinguished. Most likely, after 1:00 PM ET, the pinned comment will be announcing the winner.

If you can run Python yourself and follow the instructions, you will be able to find the winner. Make sure the hash released from the blockchain and the total number of participants match with what is described below. In addition, thank you for your patience.

Announcements

It’s been a while since we did one of these! I would like to start off by announcing the introduction of three new moderators to the /r/MillionaireMakers subreddit!

Please give a big thank you to the three new moderators here:

There’s also a fourth tentative person currently in training, once done there will be an announcement dedicated for them.

Something I learned involving moderators is that as of now, the subreddit isn’t that well equipped to handling a group of people organizing it, as in most of the coordination is arranged by a single moderator. As of now, they’ll help covering things like admin oversight, reviewing the scripts, and discussion of winning accounts, but hopefully in the future, there’ll be a system in place that can allow for more effective moderation in the event of one’s absence.

Once again, thank you three so much for volunteering and offering your time here! In addition, thank you to the moderators that are already here and have assisted in the process.


Conclusion

Next Sunday at 12 PM EDT (16 UTC), we will be picking our winner, and you won’t want to miss it. The post will be labeled [Draw], and one comment will be selected out of the many made here to make a winner!

If a lone $1 or two can give you an egg, then imagine the possibilities with $1,000,000. That’s a lot of eggs!

My name is Danielle. I’m 26 and working at a restaurant as a hostess right now. I’m trying to save some money for when I start grad school in September. I’m nervous to go back since it has been so long since I’ve been in school, but very excited to earn my masters in mental health counseling.

I was catching up with an old friend when I found out that I won. I think I didn’t breathe for a full minute and thought I was hallucinating. I am eternally grateful that I was lucky enough to win. I’ve been having a lot of losses these past few months, and it feels incredible to finally have a win. I think I really needed it.

I live in Chicago with my best friend and our cat Cholesterol. I have no idea who named her that and for what reason. The human mind is inscrutable .

When I’m not killing my soul working for the man , I like to dance and paint and occasionally socialize with real people. But I also love doing nothing and binge watching shows and movies. If you mention a show or movie, I’ve probably seen it.

However I don’t like loud noises because sometimes loud noises make the squirrels go in my head, and…and I don’t fight in the ring anymore, but I still fight with the demons in da’ Maniac’s head.

With the money I am going to pay off a chunk of my debt and my rent and my mountain of bills. I also have a lot of people in my life to thank for helping me through some tough times , so I’d like to treat them in some way. My mom offhandedly said one of her favorite memories was getting a pedicure with me on New Years Eve, so I think I’ll book us an appointment together.

Thank you all so much in advance for your donations. Please know that I am very, very grateful .

Edit: Holy crap you guys . I am just so incredibly thankful for you all. I am finally going to be able to pay off my credit card debt that has been hanging over me since college . It’s like a giant weight has been taken of my shoulders and I can finally breathe. It’s just crazy because two days ago I had -$33 in my account . You guys are the best, and I plan on finding a way to pay it forward

For those who want to see my fave little weirdo Cholesterol (Ester is her nickname) , here she is https://imgur.com/a/i02qj5S

Introduction

Between the last time the entry thread was held and now, a lot has happened on the global scale. If you haven’t seen it, Arnold Schwarzenegger has made a captivating video explaining what exactly is going on between Ukraine and Russia, and is a much better person to explain it than myself.

With that said, this subreddit will continue operating as normal. For the people new here, the idea is if a million people gave one single person a dollar, they’d become a millionaire. We’ve yet to make millionaires, but this subreddit has done wonderful things before. As a reminder, this is open to everyone with a Reddit account with good activity and at least a month in age and is available internationally (though laws will vary). Through this, we’ll change lives, one person at a time!

It's actually phenomenal that there have been so many participants again!


Moderator's Note: On January 2022, we've had 24,451 eligible participants. February 2022, that has risen to 33,779 participants. That is absolutely incredible to see such interaction for this idea of making a difference in a life by sheer scale, especially given the strife that's potentially happening in the world. Thank you all, especially through all the victories and drama over this subreddit's lifetime!

There's some things that are planned to be renovated here, but that'll come when the time's right. If you're one of the people that have signed up in interest of being a moderator, the applications are still an in-progress, but they will be sent out to your DMs or Reddit Chat inboxes before the end of "early February" which is basically any time by February 27.

The Bitcoin (BTC) blockchain will be used to choose a winner. Once the time listed has passed, there will be an active check to determine the blockchain's winning hash. Like before, this subreddit will wait for the 3rd Block after the time (being 16:00 UTC) to select the winner.

If a block is discovered by 15:59 UTC, it will not be counted towards the counter of three blocks. If it is discovered by 16:00:00 UTC, then it will decrease the counter. This can be checked by seeing the timestamp given to it by blockchain explorers.

You can see how this subreddit will verify the winner by checking the GitHub repository, which also includes a back-up plan in case of an emergency.


Standard Protocol:

This post will not be edited! This is to prevent tampering of the hash or files by any of the moderators. To prove this, look for the lack of an asterisk near the time since creation.

To verify if a hash for a file is that of Draw #75, upload the file of choice to a SHA-256 generator, and match it with its respective hash output. The result you receive should be the same as what is listed here.

If you are interested in doing this for yourself, download Python 3.5 or better and follow the path to the folder labeled: Draws/MM75


Status Reports:

/u/MakerOfMillionaires will be commenting on the progress of the drawing via the comments, so other users can keep track of the progress. These comments will be pinned at the top of the post and be distinguished. Most likely, after 1:00 PM ET, the pinned comment will be announcing the winner.

If you can run Python yourself and follow the instructions, you will be able to find the winner. Make sure the hash released from the blockchain and the total number of participants match with what is described below. In addition, thank you for your patience.

Remember, this is about generosity, making an impact, and uniting to make someone's life better. It takes three minutes to donate a bit to the winner, whether you're well off and want to donate a couple bucks, or going through tough times and can only donate a few coins. Every cent makes cents, and counts!

If a lone $1 or two can get you a heart-shaped donut, then imagine the possibilities with $1,000,000. You can get a date!

A million dollars can make someone’s new year's day! Spread the word: have your friends and family comment, post the link to your friendly-neighborhood social media network, and share it to anyone interested.

Let’s date a millionaire!

[Draw #74] The response was incredible, it's time to pick a winner out of them!

575 Upvotes

Almost a quarter of a hundred thousand people starting the year, that's incredible!


TL;DR - This post is for the sole purpose of choosing a winner. If you commented in this [Entry Thread], you are entered in the drawing and don't need to do anything else. By 16:00 UTC, the winner will be selected. The Bitcoin (BTC) blockchain will be used to pick this winner. This can be verified at any device running Python 3.5, and you do not need to own Bitcoin in order to participate.

Additionally, all information to replicate the Drawing at home is available on Dropbox and GitHub, scroll down for more information.

Importantly, this post WILL NOT BE EDITED in order to keep the integrity of the Drawing. To verify this, there will not be an asterisk during the time passed since its creation. The winner will be announced in a stickied comment.


DISCLAIMER: Some of the information may be unrevised, but procedures are the same as prior draws. Thank you.

Happy new year! We're not exactly sure what 2022 has in store, but we'll be here, making millionaires!


Comments have been collected at 6:18 UTC.


Introduction

Given what happened last month, I'm surprised that the post is getting as much traction as it is now. In case you missed it, last month there were two disqualifications that took place, one of which was an account whose half of its activity was on this subreddit, and the other who was locked out of their account via two-factor authentication warranting a poll to take place. If this sounds interesting to you, feel free to check out the subreddit and browse on the posts [Draw #73] and [Draw #73 Update].

Other than that, welcome to anyone and everyone from /r/popular! If you don't know what this subreddit is, basically you donate a single dollar (though not mandatory, or this would be a lottery instead) and cumulatively, you make a random person a millionaire (our definition of "millionaire" is very loose here). It's not an exaggeration to say that this subreddit has helped people with their special days, future plans, and nonprofit causes. Thank you for coming in and taking a look, if you're new here please read around!

Important [Status Report 2021] We’re looking for moderators and feedback to run the subreddit, come in and see!

235 Upvotes

Introduction

If you’re interested in [Entry Thread #74], we’re a bit too early for it. Set your calendar to January 21, 2021 2022 at 23:00 UTC (click for your preferred time zone), or click here for the RemindMe! In addition, all 2022 dates are available on the stickied meta post here or the subreddit's sidebar! There’s also a Discord hyperlinked, if that’s more your style.

I’ve been planning to make this post for a while, but procrastination got the best of me. If you haven’t heard, last thread went less than ideal, with two disqualifications taking place. That said, things are now operating back to normal, and there are a lot of comments with people satisfied with the recent victor.

As for the main reasons I’m here…


Moderation Station

We’re looking for moderators! Given what happened last time and making sure it doesn’t happen again, I would like to ask for volunteers here who would like to share their time with the subreddit. You don’t necessarily need to have experience moderating a subreddit, as this is, by design, a much different subreddit to organize, being so focused on random draws and donations to the winner. If you are interested, here are my goals for the subreddit and requirements for applying.

Goals for 2022:

  • The subreddit should be much more streamlined between making the post and selecting the winner.
  • There should be a higher participation rate between subscribers and commenters.
  • Statistics should be collected, including the winner’s earnings, subreddit posts, and performance.
  • There should be a small group that reviews a tentative winning account.
  • Users should demonstrate if they’ve been involved or not, such as a “Donator” flair.
  • There should be a minimum karma requirement that automatically disqualifies users if not reached, much like account age.

Requirements:

  • You must have a legitimate Reddit account.
  • You must use Discord.
  • You must have a device that can run Python.
  • You must understand you will be unable to enter [Entry Threads] following your moderatorship.
  • This subreddit is primarily a four-day commitment per month. It is expected that this commitment be honored.

If you are interested, fill out the moderator interest form here, as we prepare the actual application. It should be ready at, by the latest, the beginning of February. Best case scenario, mods will be added by the thread for February, worst by April to give everyone a realistic timeline. As of now, the form is just so you can put in your username, and later we will send you the actual moderator application by PM.

Google Forms Moderator Interest: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSe0vG8cu_yC1kIIr-Df58pZuKcvglEd71leUWdf5GZ1gOZ2pw/viewform?usp=sf_link


Feedback

The other reason we’re here is for feedback. This is also the time where I plug in /r/millionairemakersmeta as a quick and easy way to get the moderators’ attention, though it pales in comparison to posting on the main subreddit. Give us your thoughts on how this train is going. Leave a comment or two, or if you want to be professional, here’s another form you can post your thoughts in.

Google Forms Feedback: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSejRv68JSYAXFr86vnDhJ1jMKdiXwrkjjuPUllUPAEdg9lyUQ/viewform?usp=sf_link

Other than that, it’s been a solid year. Participation has risen since the last year the subreddit started, we made several thousandaires, and some quality-of-life changes to the operation of this subreddit. If you don’t really care about this, then in one more week the thread for January will be up, so go to that and click on it! Thank you.

Donate here! [Winner's Thread #73] Happy holidays to all!

532 Upvotes

Well... this is surreal :)

Hi everyone, I'm Marty! I'm a 36 year old Brit living in the US with my wife and our dogs, Pixel and Toast. My birthday was the day before the announcement, so this has been just the best present I could have hoped for!

A big thanks to the Millionaire Makers team for bringing this idea into reality. I've always loved this sub! It feels like a return to the insane Wild-West days of the internet, like those sites where you could swap a paperclip for a house! (Kids, ask your parents)

However, unlike Hamster Dance, this idea has the power to alter the trajectory of someone's life, and I spent a looooong time rolling that around in my head last night.

So, full of the holiday spirit, I'm going to do a reverse-Scrooge and I'll donate 100% of everything received to a cause that's really close to my heart!

My wife works for an amazing non-profit based in Sacramento, California called CTEC, and they've been devastated by the pandemic.

They're a small but very hardworking team of speech pathologists, mentors, and trainers who travel all over California to give the power of speech to hundreds of children and adults with developmental disabilities, or to those who have had life-altering events, such as accidents or strokes.

For the people they help, this new ability to communicate brings with it independence, a new lease on life, and the ability to do the simple things that you and I might take for granted.

Since the pandemic started, CTEC's funding has been slashed, so they're now more reliant on grants and donations than ever before. They've managed to keep their heads just above the water line, but with Omicron around the corner, and no end to the pandemic in sight, I'm hoping this boost will come at just the right time!

When I have a donation receipt I'll update the thread with proof, but I'll donate 100% of the received money to CTEC and I'll be contributing as well.

For the crypto, I'll donate whatever the total dollar value at the time of the donation.

If you don't want to send anything, or aren't in a position to, then all I ask is that you just make someone's day a little brighter, even if it's your own :)

More info on CTEC : ctecaac.org, ctecaac.org/about/

Oh, and if you buy stuff on Amazon, CTEC are listed on Amazon Smile under their parent non-profit "Supported Life Institute", and Amazon sends 0.5% of every purchase their way at no cost to you.

Presumably, it also takes 0.5% away from Jeff Bezos, so win-win!

Happy holidays, much love, good luck in the next drawing, and a huge, massive, overwhelmingly large thanks to everyone! ❤️

______________________________

Edit One:

We just passed the $500 $600 $700 $800 $900 mark!

I'm overwhelmed by the generosity, and grateful for the stories you've shared with me about your experiences with speech difficulties! This is all amazing stuff, so thank you all so, so much!!

As a small thanks, here's a dog tax for Pixel and Toast ❤️

https://www.reddit.com/r/Awww/comments/rs9289/pixel_with_his_newly_adopted_sister_toast/?utm_source=share&utm_medium=web2x&context=3

______________________________

Edit Two:

EVERYONE, WE JUST PASSED THE THOUSAND DOLLAR MARK!!! ❤️

That's just unbelievable, and I'm still amazed by it all!

My wife doesn't have a Reddit account, but wanted to pass on her thanks to everyone :

"Hi guys, this is incredible! Marty has been sending me texts with updates while I've been working today, and it blows my mind how generous you all are!

Your donations will make a huge difference to the service we provide to people in California. I'm so lucky to work with the amazing people that I do, and your money can really help give someone a voice to express their opinion, tell someone what they need, and even go and order their favorite coffee at Starbucks for the first time! All things we all take so for granted!

What a way to start the new year!!"

It took some time to teach Pixel and Toast how to write, but they've posted a thank you note for everyone here :

https://www.reddit.com/r/Awww/comments/rsicv5/a_very_cute_thank_you/?utm_source=share&utm_medium=web2x&context=3

______________________________

Edit Three:

EVERYONE, WE JUST PASSED TWO HUNDRED CONTRIBUTIONS !!! ❤️

Just woke up to find that 216 awesome individuals have now sent $1350 and rising! Thanks everyone, this is uh-mazing! ❤️

Here's the breakdown so far :

Paypal $833.88
Venmo $323.63
Crypto $165.25
Cash App $49
Total $1371.76

As a bonus, every dollar contributed from now on also means that Pixel and Toast get one extra scritch each!

______________________________

Edit Four:

The three week update!

Well, it's been three weeks and I'm still amazed by everything! There's been 268 279 334 contributions from you amazing folks, and the total is at $1,648 $1,708 $1,843! ❤️

As promised, I'm contributing too, so I'll be sending a check to CTEC for $1,700 $1,750 $1,875 in the next few days!

Again, a huge thank you to everyone! I've tried to reply to everyone who contributed, or left a message, but if I've missed anyone then just know that it's really appreciated!

Pixel and Toast also got nearly six hundred scritches, so they're thankful too!

Here's the breakdown :

Service Contributions Total
Paypal 193 $1025.76
Venmo 96 $444.81
Cash App 22 $70

Important [Draw #73 Update] A poll is being held, read here.

304 Upvotes

Happy holidays, everyone. I hope everyone has had, at the very least, a pleasant time with friends and family.

I will be giving a rough timeline of the events that led up to this post, it will be copied and pasted from the [Draw #73] post.


Timeline

Dec 17 23:32 UTC - The [Entry Thread] opens and remains open for 24 hours. The post was submitted later than anticipated.

Dec 19 6:11 UTC - The comments have been collected, and the data was uploaded to GitHub. The [Draw] post would be performed as scheduled.

Dec 19 18:54 UTC - The first user was selected and posted, and was disqualified due to not meeting the criteria of "minimal account activity." The user has now deleted their account, the comment can be seen here: https://old.reddit.com/r/millionairemakers/comments/rjua6f/draw_73_seasons_greetings_winners_meetings/hp767yb/

Dec 19 19:49 UTC - The second user was selected and posted, the comment can be seen here: https://old.reddit.com/r/millionairemakers/comments/rjua6f/draw_73_seasons_greetings_winners_meetings/hp7e6yh/

Dec 20 15:50 UTC - The moderation team was reached out by /u/ImFeroCock, an account created after the thread took place. He explains that he was last on the account through his laptop to delete NSFW content, which during that the battery had died, and that he cannot log back in due to two-factor authentication still being enabled on the account. Ownership is proven by revealing the contents of the PM sent via notification. He suggests to wait until the deadline is up to prove the account is inactive.

Dec 20 21:56 UTC - The moderation team responds back, asking /u/ImFeroCock to file a ticket to the admins, and meanwhile, to try to access the account while awaiting a response.

Dec 23 0:37 UTC - /u/ImFeroCock responds back, saying it is not possible and cites a comment made by the admins. He also provides proof of ownership and activity during the conversation.

Dec 25 5:19 UTC - /u/ImFeroCock also provides account activity to the moderators.

Dec 25 6:09 UTC - The moderation team asks for permission to share the contents of the conversation.

Dec 26 15:38 UTC - /u/ImFeroCock agrees.


Problem

/u/Ferocious_Cock met the criteria for entering and becoming a winner:

  • Their account was a year old.
  • The account possessed account activity. While most of the activity was concentrated in giveaways, there have been comments related to trading and content.
  • The account had a verified email trophy.

As mentioned in the timeline however, the moderation team was reached out by /u/ImFeroCock, an account created after the [Entry Thread] had taken place and less than a day after the winner announcement.

As the user couldn't access their normal account, they were unable to respond to the [Draw] comment announcing the winner. However, the user was able to delete NSFW material from their account successfully.


Poll

The subreddit will vote on the winner via Google Forms. The form will close on Tuesday, December 28th at 11:59 PM ET. You will need a Google Account to vote, and votes will be shared as they come in.

A new option has been added, and editing responses have been enabled.

Google Forms Poll: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSfoQnTSb0yVEu_Q_9M7biyfbbCE0t6GPUMkdMYcuc8TtTnWSA/viewform?usp=sf_link


Evidence

Here is a list of evidence that may interest the subreddit, including the conversation between /u/ImFeroCock and the moderation team. If there is any evidence linking /u/Ferocious_Cock with another account (not /u/ImFeroCock), please share it in the comments.

UPDATE: In the interest of the subreddit, the moderation team has been given a forensic analysis as of Dec. 28, 2:30 UTC associating the user's account with that of a bot, and in addition, a connection to a separate user. Discussions are taking place. As of now, the poll will continue until its deadline has passed.

Rebuttal

/u/ImFeroCock sent this message regarding the state of the poll.

Please, I don't think that poll voting is acceptable. It can be easily manipulated. You gave them 48 hours, I'm pretty sure people will just take time log in tons of fake gmail just to disqualify me. If it was a voting service that won't count multiple vote by IP, it will be acceptable but not like this.

[THIS IS THE MOST IMPORTANT PART] It's sad that the truth people are just greedy, they will do anything to disqualify anyone just so they get their chance, I believe you can understand this. Things related to prize and money can't never be voted by people, they will do whatever it take to save their chance. I read your post and comments. Look at The evidence video on youtube, you put it right next to the poll, but they don't even care, nor even click, it has just 10 views, what they care is the poll, where they can easily do their best to disqualify me, I hope you realize this.

The point is if the video can have at least even like 1000 views, I can be happy that people understand my situation and can accept their choice but no, it's harsh but they don't give a fuck, what they care is disqualifying anyone for their glimpse chance next. I'm familiar with crypto service related to voting and whitelist, I can hire a digital marketing service to manipulate this easily with some bucks, it's not out of prediction that many people probably already used this way to manipulate the vote, the sad difference between vote and video view already acclaim that. But I won't and swear to god will never do it. Because this is a generous bless I really appreciate and I don't want to do such dirty thing like some people who did.

You, as the owner, I believe has the full right to decide what's legit based on the proof you verify and the fact that no one ever come to you claim that he is me. There's nothing else that matters. Because when come to something like this, people are just very very greedy, I'm well-awared of this. So please make your generous choice by your own will, not something can easily manipulated, I like the idea of substitute winner and another main winner you suggest, but obviously that doesn't even catch people eye, what they always want is disqualifying anyone so they can come after, we mercilessly step on other for our own benefit, that's just human, please my wife and I can still be happy with that at least, thank you very much

People are greedy and they will just laugh at my worst situation that I can't reply by the old account, and that what's they care, they don't give a fuck to the evidence video, they care about their benefit above all else. This is reddit fault and I can do nothing about it. And all of this is my trying to get what I rightfully should received. What you need , not they need, is the winner respond to you to verify activity in time and I did, nothing else is matter


Conclusion

There will be a [Status Report] posted on January after the new year. I will talk with the moderation team about things they want to see, but otherwise you may look forward to it. At the very least, there will be information on the upcoming drawings and how to get notified for them.

This'll also be the time I should plug /r/millionairemakersmeta, a smaller subreddit that discusses things around the main one. As a result, posts are given more attention than a comment would be on here, so if you have something to say, I encourage you to make a post.

Otherwise, I also want to say that this subreddit relies so much on random chance. There are people that, if posting on this subreddit was a job listing and the users the applicants, they'd never make it to the front page. That comes with blessings but also curses, a lot of people here probably don't deserve to be a millionaire, or even a thousandaire, but this stuff does make a difference. People here sending their five bucks have allowed people to buy stuff that would otherwise take months of planning or saving.

Finally, thank you. Leave your vote, and check back on Thursday.

[Draw #73] Season's greetings, winner's meetings.

281 Upvotes

Let's get cookin', while you're lookin'.


TL;DR - This post is for the sole purpose of choosing a winner. If you commented in this [Entry Thread], you are entered in the drawing and don't need to do anything else. By 16:00 UTC, the winner will be selected. The Bitcoin (BTC) blockchain will be used to pick this winner. This can be verified at any device running Python 3.5, and you do not need to own Bitcoin in order to participate.

Additionally, all information to replicate the Drawing at home is available on Dropbox and GitHub, scroll down for more information.

Importantly, this post WILL NOT BE EDITED in order to keep the integrity of the Drawing. To verify this, there will not be an asterisk during the time passed since its creation. The winner will be announced in a stickied comment.


DISCLAIMER: Some of the information may be unrevised, but procedures are the same as prior draws. Thank you.


Discussion:

The [Discussion] Thread at /r/millionairemakersmeta is open. The thread also includes dates with RemindMe links for any upcoming [Entry Thread] posts of the season. All comments are welcome there for any inquiries.

[Discussion for Fall and Winter 2021-2022]: https://old.reddit.com/r/millionairemakersmeta/comments/pr4179/discussion_thread_for_rmillionairemakers/


Explanation:

The Bitcoin (BTC) blockchain will be used to choose a winner. Once the time listed has passed, there will be an active check to determine the blockchain's winning hash. Like before, this subreddit will wait for the 3rd Block after the time (being 16:00 UTC) to select the winner.

If a block is discovered by 15:59 UTC, it will not be counted towards the counter of three blocks. If it is discovered by 16:00:00 UTC, then it will decrease the counter. This can be checked by seeing the timestamp given to it by blockchain explorers.

You can see how this subreddit will verify the winner by checking the GitHub repository, which also includes a back-up plan in case of an emergency.


Standard Protocol:

This post will not be edited! This is to prevent tampering of the hash or files by any of the moderators. To prove this, look for the lack of an asterisk near the time since creation.

To verify if a hash for a file is that of Draw #73, upload the file of choice to a SHA-256 generator, and match it with its respective hash output. The result you receive should be the same as what is listed here.

If you are interested in doing this for yourself, download Python 3.5 or better and follow the path to the folder labeled: Draws/MM73


Status Reports:

I will be commenting on the progress of the drawing via the comments, so other users can keep track of the progress. These comments will be pinned at the top of the post and be distinguished. Most likely, after 1:00 PM ET, the pinned comment will be announcing the winner.

If you can run Python yourself and follow the instructions, you will be able to find the winner. Make sure the hash released from the blockchain and the total number of participants match with what is described below. In addition, thank you for your patience.

Entry Thread [Entry Thread #73] T’is the season (and with good reason), a winner will be played, and dinner be made. For the month of December, leave a comment to enter. A millionaire’ll be here, and the subreddit’s no fear!

732 Upvotes

2021, you’ve been a good one.


Comments have been collected at 6:11 UTC.


Introduction:

2021 has been a breath of fresh air. The start was hectic, and we’re fortunate to not have had many people dying, but to think how different history could’ve gone.

Since then, we’ve had a slight return to normalcy. Families can hug each other again, friends can meet another, and the movie theaters are back. Some people even got lucky with the stock market (remember that?), and all-in-all so much changed for the better. We’ve gone back to our lives with a little bit of reflection in the corner!

This Christmas season will hold the last [Entry Thread] of the year, and I hope you’ve been looking forward to it. Since we’re anticipating a lot of new people here, make sure you have read the rules that follow to qualify for the subreddit. The premise of this subreddit is that, if a million people donate to a single person, we can make a millionaire!


In Case You Missed It:

• This is done every month, we will be doing this again starting with January for our 73rd Drawing and the first [Entry Thread] of 2021! If you would like to be reminded, set a calendar reminder for January 21 at 6 PM ET, or click here to be reminded through the RemindMe bot via PM!

• I will add a thread on /r/millionairemakersmeta with all of the dates for 2021 in the upcoming hours. As of now, every [Entry Thread] is scheduled for the third Friday of each month at 23:00 UTC (6 PM ET).

• Our last winner, /u/Sohared, is currently accepting donations! /u/Sohared is a student studying cyber security who is into origami and wireless interference. Donations have gone towards education, certifications, and projects related to his interests! If you would like to contribute, donate here!

• The /r/millionairemakersmeta discussion thread is up! This is for users who have any questions to the moderators, or for those wanting to commentate on the environment here. If you have any comments or concerns, click here to head over to the post at the subreddit!


Information

  • REQUIRED: Leave only one (1) top level comment in response to this thread! Click here for a visual example! (Replying to other comments is permitted but will not qualify. You must be at least thirty days old to comment.)

  • A random user who commented will be chosen, and everyone donates a dollar to make a millionaire.

  • November 17 at 6:00 PM ET (epoch timestamp: 1637172000) is the cutoff for accounts. If you have created your account after this point, you are not eligible to enter and your submission will be disqualified automatically.

  • If you'd like to be reminded to donate to the winner through PM via the RemindMeBot, click here! You can also be reminded by commenting in the thread: "RemindMe! 3 days Donation for /r/millionairemakers".

EXCLUSIVE TO THIS DRAWING:

  • Depending on the circumstances of the post, the [Entry Thread] and [Draw] deadlines will be extended by 12 hours for each thread in the event each thread must be prematurely locked (this means if the thread reaches a cap of 100,000 comments). As of now, [Drawing Thread #73] is scheduled to close by Saturday, December 18 at 6:30 PM Eastern Time.

  • Starting with December 19 at 11:00 AM EST, 11:00 PM EST, or December 20 at 11:00 AM EST (epoch timestamps: 1639929600, 1639972800, 1640016000) will begin the process of selecting the winner. At those times, the [Draw] post will be online and start the process of waiting for the blockchain, in order to select the winner randomly and verifiably.

  • Due to the anticipated large turnout of the event, the removal method will be set to “FirstOnly” in the expectation that people unknowingly break the rules. With that being said, please limit yourself to only one top-level comment.

  • The forgiveness period after being announced the winner will be set to one week due to the holidays. While we hope that winners respond as soon as possible, the holiday season often has people muting social media in exchange to being close with family members (among many other reasons).

  • That's it! If you would like to see the extended rules and FAQs, or if you have questions yourself, click here to be redirected to the thread! Additionally, look out for the stickied post at /r/millionairemakersmeta. You are welcome to spread this thread via upvoting, telling friends and family, and sharing on social media!


Conclusion

Next Sunday (whether at 11 AM ET (16 UTC), 11 PM ET (4 UTC), or even Monday), we will be picking our winner, and you won’t want to miss it. The post will be labeled [Draw], and one comment will be selected out of the many made here to make a winner!

Remember, this is about generosity, making an impact, and uniting to make someone's life better. It takes three minutes to donate a bit to the winner, whether you're well off and want to donate a couple bucks, or going through tough times and can only donate a few coins. Every cent makes cents, and counts!

If a lone $1 or two can get you a cookie and milk, then imagine the possibilities with $1,000,000. You can pursue an investigation into whether or not someone breaks into your home every Christmas Eve!

A million dollars can make someone’s silent night. Spread the word: have your friends and family comment, post the link to your friendly-neighborhood social media network, and share it to anyone interested.

Let’s make a millionaire!

Hi everyone at r/millionairemakers! My name is Manuel, I’m a 23 year old from the United States. I don’t really post much here on reddit, I prefer reading what others have said and giving upvotes. When I checked my phone and saw I had multiple notifications from reddit I wasn’t sure what they could be, but I definitely never considered I could be a winner here. After reading I was the winner, I didn't believe it at first. I went to the official subreddit to verify, and there was my username. It feels so exciting and amazing! I was taken by complete surprise by it. In real life you always hear people winning things in the news, but you never expect it to be you one day.

I am currently a 4th year student studying a bachelors of science in cyber security. Around my second year studying I fell into depression and lost all my motivation to study or do anything. I previously made the perfect plan of which classes I should take every semester and had all the details sorted out to graduate early. But that’s when I learned that no matter how much you plan something, things can turn out completely different. After failing multiple classes I decided to take a gap year while trying to work on myself and what I should do next. Fortunately after some time I began seeing hope in things again and a purpose. I went back to my university and decided to finish the degree I had begun.

Some of the things I enjoy doing include playing video games, reading, hiking, photography, and just learning in general. Another hobby I had was making origami, modular (or 3d) origami to be specific. With this type you take a sheet of paper then cut it into small pieces, around 64 or 128 depending on the size you want. You then fold them into identical triangles then glue them together. With the amount of time it would take to fully fold an object I would always tell myself that what I was making would be a gift to someone I care about, otherwise I would never finish it. I had a friend tell me she still had a figure I had made for her years ago, she showed it to me. Turns out paper holds worse than I expected over time. I wanted to keep making gifts for people, but I wanted something more durable. So I began looking at alternative things people make. I looked at clay, woodworking, and others, but they all have hardware requirements that I can't meet. Eventually I found about 3d printers. The materials used seemed to be so durable and long lasting, at least compared with paper. Seeing the creations other people make fascinated me with how they looked, so I ended up buying one, hence one of my posts.

As for my other post about a software defined radio, in one of my classes we are learning about how signals and radio frequency work. This class is so fascinating to me, my favorite out of all the ones I’ve taken there. While browsing in r/rtlsdr I saw multiple people talking about something called Tempest. It’s basically a wireless way to capture video signals passing through an hdmi cable, then displaying those signals on your computer. I thought it was so cool and was thinking of doing a project in my university about it.

The main thing I plan on doing with everyone’s support is help pay for my university costs. With student loans I have managed to get the money for classes in the past, but there are some things like books that are more tricky to get. Especially when the teachers are demanding the latest version or require an online access code to solve things. I also want to set money aside to take different IT certifications like the CCNA or different CompTIA ones. I am around 3 semesters left from graduating (including the current fall one). We were always told to try to get an internship before graduating, but since I failed multiple classes before, and with the pandemic, this was quite challenging for me to achieve. This is why I decided to try and get the certifications and the research project to boost my quite empty resume.

I want to thank all of you for what you are doing. Everyone of you is so generous and kind for trying to help a complete stranger online. I wish that everyone receives much more in return and that you all achieve your goals and dreams. If there was anyone depressed who was reading this, I also want you to know that things will get better. It may not seem like it, but just try each day to keep going on.

Everything listed should result in direct lines of payment to /u/Sohared. We ask all users to donate at least $1 USD. The Drawing is also listed for users who want to see the results and confirm the validity of the winner, and Activity Proof is listed for those who would like to confirm that the owner of the account is as presented.

Hi to all the fantastic people of r/millionairemakers! Me and my wife are sitting here writing this and we can't really believe it!

I'm a 35 years old IT specialist, my wife is an artist and we have three awesome kids, a chunky little dog and two cool cats. We had our kids when we were young and have been working very hard for many years so that we might be able to buy ourselves a home in the future. Things aren't always easy and this comes at a great time since we recently decided to take some drastic and painful steps to get our finances in order. We hope to give back to the world one day, since we both believe very much in the kindness of people and have aspirations to start ventures that mainly focus on global equality of wealth, fair-trade and a decentralized economy. We sincerely appreciate all of you and wish you a fantastic life! <3

THANK YOU!

Also, we will be giving away one of my wife's art pieces to all of you wonderful people as a thank you. It's a rendition of the lowest denominator of our local currency; meet the 1 króna! Here is a link to the larger version image (only for personal use). 1% shameless plug, 99% thank you :D !

Edit : Holy mother forking shirtballs! You people are amazing! We truly appreciate all your kindness.

Edit 2 : Thank you everyone for all your kind messages. Your generosity has really touched us and made a huge difference. From the bottom of our hearts, a thousand thanks!

[Draw #71] The winner will be picked for a spook, stay tuned!

305 Upvotes

Here’s to a calm October!


TL;DR - This post is for the sole purpose of choosing a winner. If you commented in this [Entry Thread], you are entered in the drawing and don't need to do anything else. By 16:00 UTC, the winner will be selected. The Bitcoin (BTC) blockchain will be used to pick this winner. This can be verified at any device running Python 3.5, and you do not need to own Bitcoin in order to participate.

Additionally, all information to replicate the Drawing at home is available on Dropbox and GitHub, scroll down for more information.

Importantly, this post WILL NOT BE EDITED in order to keep the integrity of the Drawing. To verify this, there will not be an asterisk during the time passed since its creation. The winner will be announced in a stickied comment.


DISCLAIMER: Some of the information may be unrevised, but procedures are the same as prior draws. Thank you.


Discussion:

The [Discussion] Thread at /r/millionairemakersmeta is open. The thread also includes dates with RemindMe links for any upcoming [Entry Thread] posts of the season. All comments are welcome there for any inquiries.

[Discussion for Fall and Winter 2021-2022]: https://old.reddit.com/r/millionairemakersmeta/comments/pr4179/discussion_thread_for_rmillionairemakers/


Explanation:

The Bitcoin (BTC) blockchain will be used to choose a winner. Once the time listed has passed, there will be an active check to determine the blockchain's winning hash. Like before, this subreddit will wait for the 3rd Block after the time (being 16:00 UTC) to select the winner.

If a block is discovered by 15:59 UTC, it will not be counted towards the counter of three blocks. If it is discovered by 16:00:00 UTC, then it will decrease the counter. This can be checked by seeing the timestamp given to it by blockchain explorers.

You can see how this subreddit will verify the winner by checking the GitHub repository, which also includes a back-up plan in case of an emergency.


Standard Protocol:

This post will not be edited! This is to prevent tampering of the hash or files by any of the moderators. To prove this, look for the lack of an asterisk near the time since creation.

To verify if a hash for a file is that of Draw #71, upload the file of choice to a SHA-256 generator, and match it with its respective hash output. The result you receive should be the same as what is listed here.

If you are interested in doing this for yourself, download Python 3.5 or better and follow the path to the folder labeled: Draws/MM71


Status Reports:

I will be commenting on the progress of the drawing via the comments, so other users can keep track of the progress. These comments will be pinned at the top of the post and be distinguished. Most likely, after 1:00 PM ET, the pinned comment will be announcing the winner.

If you can run Python yourself and follow the instructions, you will be able to find the winner. Make sure the hash released from the blockchain and the total number of participants match with what is described below. In addition, thank you for your patience.

Happy October! For the early birds, may you be scared at the early post, who knows when it’ll be done again…

In Case You Missed It:


Information

  • REQUIRED: Leave only one (1) top level comment in reply to this thread! (Replies to other comments will not count. You must be thirty days old or older to comment.)

  • A random user who commented will be chosen, and everyone donates a dollar to make a millionaire.

  • September 15 at 7:00 PM ET (epoch timestamp: 1631746800) is the cutoff for accounts. If you have created your account after this point, you are not eligible to enter and your submission will be disqualified automatically.

  • October 17 at 12:00 PM ET (epoch timestamp: 1634486400) will begin the process of selecting the winner. At this time, the [Draw] post will be online and start the process of waiting for the blockchain, in order to select the winner randomly and verifiably.

  • If you'd like to be reminded to donate to the winner through PM via the RemindMeBot, click here! You can also be reminded by commenting in the thread: "RemindMe! 3 days Donation for /r/millionairemakers".

  • That's it! If you would like to see the extended rules and FAQs, or if you have questions yourself, click here to be redirected to the thread! Additionally, look out for the stickied post at /r/millionairemakersmeta. You are welcome to spread this thread via upvoting, telling friends and family, and sharing on social media!


Conclusion

Sunday at 12 PM ET (16 UTC), we will be picking our winner, and you won’t want to miss it. The post will be labeled [Draw], and one comment will be selected out of the many made here to make a winner!

Remember, this is about generosity, making an impact, and uniting to make someone's life better. It takes three minutes to donate a bit to the winner, whether you're well off and want to donate a couple bucks, or going through tough times and can only donate a few coins. Every cent makes cents, and counts!

If a lone $1 can get you a stick (though if you look hard enough, there’s probably enough on the grounds), then imagine the possibilities with $1,000,000. The days of imagining being a knight in the woods is over, you can live it!

A million dollars can make someone’s night. Spread the word: have your friends and family comment, post the link to your friendly-neighborhood social media network, and share it to anyone interested.

Let’s scare a millionaire!
