Sez's Crime City Scholarship

For those of you who may not know, Crime City legend, Sez, recently gave me a free $20 itunes gift certificate. For those of you who didn't know about this, and want the full story, have a quick look at this thread:

http://www.funzio.com/forum/showthread.php?20040-50-hours-and-39-boxes-later....

For those of you that cant be bothered to read that... this came about by me jokingly asking Sez to lend me $20. Sez told me he was a little busy at work but he would sort me out after his meetings.

Now imagine my surprise when I got a PM from Sez containing the code for a lovely, brand spanking new $20 itunes voucher!

Now to put this in perspective... I don't know Sez. Only from this forum. So this was a random act of kindness, essentially from a stranger! Of course I couldn't really accept this gift. So over a couple of personal messages me and Sez have decided what we are going to do with this voucher.

We are going to give it away to one of you lot!

Here is how.

Comment on this thread and tell us why you deserve the $20. Simple. Best answer wins!

One catch though... this is only open to the forum members who lost out on getting the sig in the recent event... we will check! So no lying right!!

Get commenting and win courtesy of all round great guy, and my friend, Sez!

Joey Cool and I have our own "promotion" for you. It was his idea so I will let him break it down but maybe it will help 1 of you out.

if I get the $20 gift certificate I promise to bring about change to the forums! I promise to stop the spam! To make our voices more heard to Funzio! I promise to bring about the demise of Payam (j/k CCMark, please don't ban me :( )!

I promise to bring about change to the hoods I represent! To bring fine dining establishments like Pirate Taverns for families, and Carousels for the children! I will shovel all the pr0n spam into Gentlemen's Clubs where it belongs!

But most of all, if I get this gift card, I will NOT STOP PLAYING, I WILL NOT STOP UNTIL EVERYONE IN THE HOODS I REPRESENT ARE HAPPY WITH THEIR STANDARD OF LIVING, AND ARE NOT BEING ATTACKED LEFT AND RIGHT BY MY RIVALS!!!

I will play.

So the story goes like this. Things have been a little tight at work with the whole economy thing and all. My company has made some cutbacks to save a few pennies and we've all shared in the fallout. It began with them turning down the heat, downgrading from soft and fluffy toilet paper to extra coarse, and asking employees to not only pay for the coffee grounds for the coffee maker, but chip in for a new coffee maker since they sold the company one to help pay the utility bill. Anyway, it's so bad that we fired our cleaning crew and toilet paper refilling is done by fellow employees.

So I'm in there doing my 3 o'clock and realize a little too late that Edwardo, a 2 o'clock man, depleted the roll, and in an act of anti-selflessness, failed to restock. Bastard. I look down, no socks under these saddles today. I look behind me in hopes of seeing one of many classy adult magazines that get left behind by previous occupants, but no; we sold all those to one of the neighborhood kids to help pay the internet bill. I check the pockets of my pants down by my ankles and find my keys and wallet. Keys maybe? Nope, they're only slightly better than the extra coarse I've become accustom to and not as effective. Wallet? I hope not. That was a gift from my girlfriend and my initials are stamped into the leather. Kinda hard to be discrete with the evidence when the evidence has your name on it. Wallet contents? One well-worn $20 bill that smelled like dirty strip club.

So that's how I lost the $20 I was going to use to buy gold from Funzio. I would love to replenish that lost money. I promise it will go to Funzio gold. The digital form pretty much ensures I cannot repeat my previous mistake.

For the record, I got 9 diamonds. I tried, but never could get that 10th bugger.

Cheers,
Nicholost

I vote myself out of this competition as I only posted cause I really like the gesture.
To be honest my goal was to get up to the golden m4, which I did so it was a successful event for me.
Also when the event started I needed around $5million in 60hour so I could build my second condo. To my relief I manage that as "I want to get my money right before I go to war" lol
Now I'll be camping at lvl 110 for a few weeks. I leveled up way too fast.

Wow, I too am surprised with the result of this thread. I thought I politely opted out of the generous offer simply because I don't feel deserving. I hope I'm not grouped in with all those people being called wankers.

It would be cool to see someone deserving get it.

(P.S.: I'm not 100% sure, but didn't G Wiz get something like 1500 gold back? I thought I read that somewhere. Just sayin')
You are comparing months of gametime/alarms/ups and down with a measly 1500 ($100)? which he willingly spent obviously if he is being reset they would have to refund him, hey if anyone deserves it it would be G Wiz IMHO

Synergy
02-16-2012, 04:05 PM
I think it's cool as hell. A random act of kindness and generosity from a guy who can probably afford it, in order to help out a forum member he hardly knows. Thats good karma right there. Ive got a couple $15 iTunes gift cards somewhere in this house. IF I'm able to find them, I'll contribute as well. I know there's some on here who need and would appreciate them more than myself. **** the haters. If it's not "enough money for your time" or you don't want to participate, then just keep it to yourself. And the guy that said nothing ever comes for free, or something similar to that...well that's just not true. In real life, at least once a week I try to give to someone who looks like they're in need and would appreciate it.

I also would like the $20 because i would like to buy some buildings for my hood because i want a better economy. I would REALLY be thankful and well appreciated if i get it. But if i dont, i tryed, so good luck to you all.

I do not want the 20 dollars though, I think twos should get the money as he was reset yet he continues to play and he can ow warn us about future threats (including himself) anyways, thanks guys

Guys yall are a rare bunch no doubt about it! Thank you all for your great concern and empathy towards what has happened!

Yea I was unable to get my sig, but I'm sure I will be able to get back up there some day. As someone did say, I did get my gold refunded back from day 1, so I would feel uneasy taking more gold as is!

But Joey and Sez I think its really cool about what you guys are doing and I hope that someone who gets it deserves it!

I'll go with G Wiz too. I'm new to the forum and have thoroughly enjoyed the friendly and supportive banter that goes on here. Oh, did I mention why I am new to the forum? Might give you a laugh! My game was "hacked". HONESTLY! If you see Yo Man around level 68 I think, read the comments left by "Angel". Anyhow, now with a new game I started over too. I spent a few $ on gold for the crates, but never found more than 6 or 7 lock boxes. Not many players had them and not enough energy to really do anything. I ended up with 4 diamonds, not too shabby. I could have found 0!

Anyway, way to go Sez and Joey!

But as CCM says:

This is a really cool event! I just wanted to note that due to taxes you wouldn't be able to buy a $20 gold or cash package, which is a common situation with gift card spenders.

Thus in the spirit of good faith and looking after your customers :)

As much as I agree that Gwiz should get it because of what happened to him, he has already stated he shouldn't get it because Funzio gave him his gold back. Also, TS hasn't posted a reason for himself to get it. I acknowledge that both these people are more worthy candidates because of circumstances/contributions, but this isn't a nomination thread, is it?

And the winner is....


I will play.

So the story goes like this. Things have been a little tight at work with the whole economy thing and all. My company has made some cutbacks to save a few pennies and we've all shared in the fallout. It began with them turning down the heat, downgrading from soft and fluffy toilet paper to extra coarse, and asking employees to not only pay for the coffee grounds for the coffee maker, but chip in for a new coffee maker since they sold the company one to help pay the utility bill. Anyway, it's so bad that we fired our cleaning crew and toilet paper refilling is done by fellow employees.

So I'm in there doing my 3 o'clock and realize a little too late that Edwardo, a 2 o'clock man, depleted the roll, and in an act of anti-selflessness, failed to restock. Bastard. I look down, no socks under these saddles today. I look behind me in hopes of seeing one of many classy adult magazines that get left behind by previous occupants, but no; we sold all those to one of the neighborhood kids to help pay the internet bill. I check the pockets of my pants down by my ankles and find my keys and wallet. Keys maybe? Nope, they're only slightly better than the extra coarse I've become accustom to and not as effective. Wallet? I hope not. That was a gift from my girlfriend and my initials are stamped into the leather. Kinda hard to be discrete with the evidence when the evidence has your name on it. Wallet contents? One well-worn $20 bill that smelled like dirty strip club.

So that's how I lost the $20 I was going to use to buy gold from Funzio. I would love to replenish that lost money. I promise it will go to Funzio gold. The digital form pretty much ensures I cannot repeat my previous mistake.

For the record, I got 9 diamonds. I tried, but never could get that 10th bugger.

High fives and hugs all around! This is rad. Sez and Joeycool, you fellas are top notch Crime City characters and even better human beings. Thank you both very much.

Alright fellow thugs and criminals, what gold items to spend it on? My personal vote goes to crates as those seem to be the best bang for the buck as far as items go, but I would not be opposed to money buildings. Let's hear it.

*For the record, I actually have a wife, not a GF. I didn't know how comfortable she'd be if I included her in my little story, so I changed her role to protect the innocent. Also, as far as I know, she doesn't hate me. She didn't really fall in love with my story, but she doesn't think I'm a loser, so mission accomplished.

Congrats! Laughed hard when i red your little story :P
btw, you have a PM!
