Just Another Idea Post

Hello to all wizards out there! If you're reading this, you're awesome. As the title says, I've got an idea for KingsIsle.

A ton of Wizard101 blogs host contests. Usually the end of a contest involves tricky timing and meeting up with the winners in-game to gift them their items rather than sending out a code through e-mail (when the contest is not KingsIsle endorsed).  What if we had a way to "shop online" in the crown shop to purchase items in gift certificate form?  It would work something like this:

1) Log in on Wizard101's website.
2) Select a "Shop Now" option.
3) Browse the Crown Shop. Select an item, and press "Buy Item*".
4) "Proceed to checkout"
5) Crowns are taken from your existing crown balance and a gift certificate is generated with a single-use code that you can e-mail out as a form of prize.

*Items could include the ability to select "Gift Certificate" or "Apply to my Account". The latter option would place the items in the gift box. This would be good for shopping remotely if you're away from your computer with Wizard101 downloaded and there is a limited time only item that becomes available.

I for one would gladly start hosting a couple of small contests if there was a way to run one without having to clear off a portion of my friend's list to distribute the prizes. The Spiral Hunger Games might even be jump-started by sweetening the deal with a prize.....

Just a thought to toss out there!  Let me know what you think. Pros/cons/other uses you can see. I'm interested to know what you all come up with!

Your Friend Always,
John Lifeglen
