    Let me get this straight... You want, maybe as you put it, $1 as donations so people could enter this raffle? You want $1 from everyone who wants to "win" this bundle you received for free? You want to $1 from people to make a "giveaway"?

    Btw, usually giveaways are for free, and stuff... And since you "got" this for free, and you will still have your copy, why did you even mentione the $1 donation?

    Everyone could pay, if they wanted, $1 for the Humble Bundle when is was "on". And even those who paid for it pirated the bundle...

    If you're going to be charging for your giveaway then it needs to go in the Trading Forum.

    So you want to make profit off a game that was "sold" for charity? Sounds like a dick move to me.

    Isn't selling digital goods against the rules?

    Very good point! Forgot all about that. So basically OP, if you're going to be charging money for this as a "raffle" idea then it'll have to be done outside of the 'temp.

    i am not selling i used the word donate you would donate me a dollar to gain an entry into the giveaway i don't see anything wrong with that. But since you guys don't like that then we will do a contest now come on give me some ideas people.

    Drawing contest? Donations are voluntary. If you "charge" donations for entry into a raffle it's against the rules. Like what TD said.

    Art contest
    Writing contest
    Music Contest maybe

    but youd need to give us a theme, and also which games you picked if you already redeemed it.

    You can use the word "donation", but if you're being forced to pay, it sure isn't a donation.

    Also, try making the "worst pun" contest. See who can make you facepalm the most!
