Welcome to the thread to discuss the Games for Geekgold Tool. I created this thread separate from the Banter thread to have a centralized location to discuss BUGs, requests, improvements and such. Here you can find the faq of how to work with the tool. A big Manual is on the works to be published on the Tool page itself.

If you have any other question, please ask here and I will add it to the FAQ.


THE FAQ

Q1: What are the GfG Lotteries? Where can I learn more?
The GfG Lotteries is a series of lotteries (or raffles more exactly) that started in September 2009 by Blott. I assumed the ship on October 2009 and manage it now.

Q2: What is the GfG Lottery Tool?
The tool is an improvement upon the Original Tool created by user Jeromier. As of now, it is an webpage where you can check the status of everything that is going on, your winning chances, how much everyone bid, which items are open, etc. And more important, it is a place where you can draw the winners.

Q3: How do I access the Tool?
Go to http://www.domusmagnasolaris.com/gfgtool/ , click in Login and type your BGG\GeekDo username and password to access the tool.

Q4: How do I find the Item Id?
When you mouseover on the number of your item on the Lottery Geeklist, you get a URL like this http://rpg.geekdo.com/geeklist/46332/item/1043139#item104313.... Your item id is the number after item, in this case it would be 1043139

Q5: How do I check a roll that was published?
If you have the roll id, go to the Rolls -> Check Roll page, and type the roll id. If you know the item, go to the item page and click Check Roll.

Q6: What is simulate roll?
Simulate roll is a tool to just select someone from the tippers of an item based on its rule. It does not count as an official roll, to officially roll the item use the Roll item button, which is visible only to the item owner and only after the Draw Date of the item.

Q7: Why does the tool says that the drawn number was 0?
Any drawing that is not made by the tool or the ones made on the first version of the tool doesn't have the drawn number, so I show it to you as zero.

Q8: How does the tool find the winner?
It first calculates how many entries each user has based on the rules that must be applied to the tips, after that it creates a giant array with as many items per use as they have entries, after that it rolls a number and see who is on that part of the array.

Just curious, I tipped for a game which closed Saturday, and when I just checked, after the winner was announced, I am not listed in the "Bidders" list as someone who could have won it.. Why might that be? I don't mind losing to someone who put in 140+ GG on an item, but if I tipped and didn't even get a chance at it, that would be disappointing.

For those that got runtime errors when finding winners, I'm working on it. But the roll was successful, if you go to the item page and click check roll, you will see the winner rolled.

Bug reports can be reported here.

About the tips not updating, the cron job that geta the number of tips is not working. BUT, when someone rolls the item it updates the tips before rolling, so don't worry that your tip will count.

I should fix the rolling problem as soon as I get to work in about 2 hours.

It should have rolled both together. Unless I mistakenly forgot to add the second winner. I will check that for you.

No big deal. I went ahead and used the "Simulate Roll" to find the second winner. People will have to trust that I didn't cheat.

Any chance you can add a "My Wins" section? I just logged in and saw my wins jump from 2 to 3, and I have no idea what it was...


Another nice feature would be sorting by a column... so I could list the auctions by ending date for example.

You can do that already on the Lists page. I added it to the combos on your bid items.

False positive is gone (Onexeno), but still says 2 wins (correct) and does not list my second win (Decathalon). Looks like all of mrqwerty's lotteries list him as the winner (as Onexeno listed me as the winner) on the Subscription thread...

Looks like several listings in February list the same Creator and Winner.

Ah I see what you mean.

Fixed. Stupid ISP didn't replicate the databases correct.

By the way, a nice warning. As my ISP is looking very, very sh*** at the moment, and not only that, it is complaining about some of the data volume (wtf?!) I already signed with another and will move the tool *soon*. The old link will still work and point to the new domain. This will solve my update problems that has been happening and fix the cron.

There are several items that don't show the winner yet but are closed already, they probably used another tool.
But why are they using another tool?!
Sol: Your tool looks better and better!!!! I better find something else to put up on one of the GfG lists
