Welcome to TF2R!Welcome everyone to TF2R, the site which takes the idea of raffling to a new level.
Here at TF2R we provide you with the ability to create a raffle which is easy to setup and spread around, it will even do the hard job of picking the winners for you!
The site is currently in a working standard, it allows you to create raffles, provides you with a link to said raffle and even notifies you of when the raffle is over.
It will even notify the people who entered if they've won or lost.
Now onto the big part, this site is designed on the "draw a ticket/number" scheme, that means we have no interface for item based entries (partly due to Valve not having a method to do this and we really don't want to have to make people admins so they can go around making sure people give x y and z to enter a b and c raffles, it's too much effort and personally, we can't be bothered!).
Because of this keep in mind that any item you put up to raffle, you are giving away for free.
Please now read below for some basic rules and infomation about the site.
You will need to agree to the terms to be granted full access to the site.
Raffles are giveaways, free of charge. The only thing we require you to do before entering the site, is to carefully read the ruleset we have in place here.
These rules are set in stone and breaking them will NOT be tolerated. Read and be safe, it's better to know and prevent, than to break and be banned.
All bans handed out are permanent but can be appealed unless stated otherwise in your ban reason.

1. RAFFLE INFORMATION
- To receive your winnings, you must contact the respective raffler or wait to be contacted by him or her. The website does not do any automated handling of items.
- This website does not guarantee that winners will receive their prizes. Buy-in raffles (where you have to give the raffler an item or payment to enter) are not sanctioned by the site and must be made private and advertised elsewhere.
- The raffle system works off of a scramble generator where every entrant is assigned a place, when the raffle ends the tables are scrambled using a random process and the entrants that match between the items and entries tables wins.
- The raffle system is entirely objective regardless of name, rank, donations, "prestige", or anything else you can make an excuse of. Every entrant has the same chance to win or even lose as every other.
- The ✓ and ✗ next to the winners refers to delivery or non-delivery. Mark it correctly so that if we must refer back to a finished raffle we can see who genuinely received their item. Please do not mark 'received' if you have not yet been given the item.
