Just to make sure one of us hasn't suffered a "technical malfunction", please confirm there's 35 rows in that spreadsheet.

Also, if you change the URL's "&hl=it" to "&hl=en" it is much easier for us to read.

I set it to en, I did not see any difference though *shrugs*

Anyway you have no idea how superlatively annoying are all those sites that pretend to "help" by infiltrating badly localized features all over the place. I wish I could turn it off.

Second, there are indeed 35 rows.

It makes a difference -- Google Docs *labels* are now in English rather than Italian (content is still English obviously).

Today I received a further 500M donation from Far Ranger [FARR] corporation.

Thank you everyone for the strong support.

It was not just my face to be shown at Fanfest, it was your sacrifices. Concerted efforts for the good of people in need is the best answer to the ruthless game where everyone looks after himself.

Updates:

1) Anyone willing to send a last minute donation for Japan please send it by Monday March 28 23:59 EvE time. Donations made past that term will be put aside for the next campaings.


2) There are 530,283,834.23 ISK left to convert into PLEXes. This equals to 1 PLEX plus something. If anyone would like to make it become 2 PLEXes feel free to.

The term for sending donations for PLEX for Good: Japan has expired.
From now on future donations will be put aside for the next emergency.

I stayed conservative on the terms, predicting CCP would do something to put themselves in a bad situation. Indeed they seem to have done so. Despite obviously expecting a spike of PLEXes donations at the last minute, they still felt like advertising the initiative on the log in page (without increasing the allocated personnel) and now they are lagging behind. I still have my last contract not accepted yet.

Great initiative VV, one question though:

2) The at the CCP campaign announcement, MRVAHFTFF016 fund's assets are liquidated and the resulting capital all converted into PLEXes to send to CCP.

Isn't a steady purchasing of PLEX better than a one time market buy-out?

I have a few reasons for asking:

PLEX RL value given to the drive will always be based on the subscription rate (no devaluation, might be inflation correction even)
PLEX ISK value is market dependent. If you start buying out bulks of them during a drive, your PLEX buying power will decline (dramatically?)
PLEX availability is not endless, you might not be able to spend all accumulated wealth during a drive.
PLEX demand will increase during a drive (making previous two points worse) as other players will do what you are doing too.

So have you considered this and what are the reasons for your current buying strategy?

Sorry if this was already asked and answered in the previous 7 pages, could you please motivate and update this in your OP as I couldn't find anything about it.

Excellent initiative and good luck!

I'll tell you how I have done.

Since I rely on Donors for a large part of the charity capital, I have to adapt to how the PLEX market is when I get the donations.

I.e. a large part of the money arrived during a 368M spike up. I applied the concepts I exposed in this Technical Analysis thread and so I managed to get a lot for about 361M+.

Then an huge part of money arrived too late to buy it at 361M, prices started at 368M but would quickly escalate up to 376M. With dozens of billions to buy, you may imagine how easy it would be for me to buy out the 368M PLEXes then up to 376M and then even higher.

I used Technical Analysis again to buy them for up to 5-10M less a piece.
I also travelled across all hi sec to find good deals, from Jita to Dodixie (and regions nearby), from Hek to Rens to Ammatar to Amarr to Tash-Murkon.

So, I didn't have the luxury for gradual purchase, else I'd have bought the PLEXes at 270M. I bought them in chunks and in different regions so I avoided spiking i.e. Jita to crazyness.

Hope this answers your question.

Since CCP after my inquiry resumed accepting contracts, I have finished sending the PLEXes.

Tomorrow I'll post a video presentation for the general public about:

- What VAERT is (not all the intended audience are MD-ers).

- Top donors

- The sequence of contracts being sent, as proof of really having sent the PLEXes to CCP.

Even if it's not a flashy PvP video, it's been quite of a challenge to make it, I hope someone will find it decent.

Was the purchase/conversion of GTCs considered as part of this project? Wondering, as the high test price I recall seeing over the last few weeks was 700M/GTC. Seems like that may have added some efficiency.

Either way, nicely done.

Buying a GTC from the forum applies it automatically to the purchasing account sadly, you cannot convert it to a plex.

Here we go.

I uploaded an high definition presentation / slide show / video clip about VAERT, Donors and how many PLEXes have been donated.

It's available on my Youtube Channel I hastily cobbled up together:

Linkage


I strongly suggest to watch it in high def, else the smallest writings won't be visible.

P.S. Yes, the channel is red, as I am red.

Right before I go to bed:

Yeah I put some general EvE videos because my other MMOs friends don't play EvE and I want them to see how it is.

Also, the first part up to the titan was done when I was few weeks to some months "old", it's why I go proudly ahead in 0.0 with... a Rupture Laughing

Some brief notes:

1) I will post more info about the results of the donations as soon as my RL time allows for it.

2) I received more little donations. These will go to the next CCP emergency relief campaign.

3) I also received an anonymous donation. I'd like to thank the small donors, your million is probably costed you more than the billion of someone else. I will respect your desire to stay anonymous but know that you are highly appreciated none the less.

PRESS RELEASE



April 01, YC 113



Vahrokh's Emergency Relief Trust forwarded 245 PLEXes to CCP


President's statement

It's with great pleausure that I announce the official results of VAERT's PLEX for Good: Japan initiative.

Thanks to the Donors, we have gathered and sent 245 PLEXes to CCP.

The whole operation has been documented on Vahrokh's Youtube channel with this video: Link.

Some salient data to give an idea about the scale of the operation:

PLEXes sent: 245 not counting Sister Funds and Donations Holders own operations.
PLEX value at the time of the transaction: 374M.
Value of the donation in ISK: 91.63B.
Equivalent value of the donation: $4,286 (*)


Top donation: 40B, by Rykker Bow.

Maximum cash in wallet: 50.52B
PLEXes directly sent to the charity: 89 (**)

Having used the techniques explained in the RL Technical Analysis thread, 50.52B of cash donations have purchased 58.344B worth of PLEXes.
This means a realized plusvalence of 7.824B or 15.5% has been made available to buy about 21 more PLEXes.

Of course nothing, nothing of this would have been possible without the Donors.


Thank you, Donors, from me and those you will have brought a little spark of hope.

Vaerah Vahrokha, President

------------------

(*) Assuming GTCs sold at $34.99.
(**) Excluding those off Sister Funds but including the fund starter PLEX.

I'd say that and the fact that VV isn't banned for scamming with the PFG program.

Remember VV was posted at fanfest as part of the PFG program. I'm pretty sure CCP would follow up if it was a scam.

Here are the well readable screenshots of it.

They are in lossless PNG format (> 1MB download each) and with transparencies showing through so you can easily see if they are photoshopped or not.

If you have a better idea, please show me. The same better idea would work wonders as proof of BSAC assets as well, so we'd catch two birds with one stone Cool.

You should know perfectly well that screenshots do not constitute a proof of anything. We stop using screenshots as proofs a long time ago. Would you be accepting screenshots as proof of assets from now on?

What would be a better form of proof for this? If you have a better suggestion it'd be good to hear so future PLEX For Good campaigns can be even smoother.

Are CCP implementing contract API soon with all the changes they are making? That would make this a lot simpler.
