should be. After running a raffle for 2.5 weeks, I look back on how many
times I had to ask "is that for a raffle ticket or just because I'm
awesome and you like me?" and wonder if the tippers realized how helpful
a simple "tix" or "raffle" would have been in the comment.

Thank you, and have a lovely day.
The models of ACF and MFC.
