I've had the blank screen with just enter since sometime in may and haven't been able to enter any lotteries. Any ETA on when this will be fixed?
The Great Gnome Conspiracy was here!
I'm new and I tried to join the lottery, but it said I am not eligible. I have no clue why, or even what the lottery is. I did find the below sentence, which if still true would affect one of my characters:
Characters with the same name as a previously deleted character on the same account and server
I have been able to enter the l-ottery, and a character won the death pact component lottery. However nothing showed up in my mail. Here's the answer I got when I submitted a ticket:
The Lottery system is still in a beta phase, and errors may occur. As a result, we are unable to provide any reimbursement of winnings at this time. We apologize for the inconvenience. Please visit the official forums for more information.
I'd have rather they didn't have it up at all.
Yeah sadly if you have a character with a name that was used previously by a deleted character then odds are that the lottery is not collectable.
There are two IDs for characters. The unique number and the character's first name. Whoever first setup myDDO seems to have flipped back and forth between the two without thinking about the fact that while it is only possible to have one active character with a given name, historically you can have several so the only proper way of tracking characters is the unique system ID. I seriously doubt it will be fixed.
There could be something wrong with the death pact lottery. OtsegoUndead won that one yesterday. She is updating correctly, but the prize was not delivered. It wouldn't be the first time that a lottery was actually broken. It could have something to do with the down time. I won a bunch yesterday, and that was the only one that failed to be delivered.

The problem is never how to get new, innovative thoughts into your mind, but how to get old ones out. Every mind is a building filled with archaic furniture. Clean out a corner of your mind and creativity will instantly fill it.
If they fixed this I'm sure it would help with the problem.
Edit: I should also mention that sometimes it lets me enter, and some times not, ( Give me a blank screen when I try to enter.).
At present MyDDO Page is the black screen with the Lottery - Click Here Button. ( Been that way for the better part of a Month)

Where is my GREATBOW???
Ok so it's not just me. I did go into one character and was able to enter but on another just the blank screen.
I used to love entering the Lotteries everyday (even if I couldn't log on to the game).
Now I will just have to wait and see if it ever gets fixed.
Dovie'andi se tovya sagain
Time to toss the dice.
To add to this ...
Is there any way to clean up the lottery/MyDDO entries so only 'valid' characters are listed ? By valid I mean ones that still exist. My entry list and MyDDO keeps showing characters that I have deleted completely or deleted/rerolled. The deleted ones just hang about like bad smells while th rerolled ones get double or triple entries. They also come up multiple times when you do a character search (as do some TR'd characters).
Is there any way to clean this out or is it just so far down the 'fix' list that we just have to live with it?
I think that anyone who is complaining about this has already won the lottery as they can take their, obviously perfected, idea and sell it to Turbine and BAM - there's your lotto!
This will then enable them to put their money where their mouth is.
Any chance of (temporarily) disabling the history portion of the lottery? As in, modify it to always return an empty list rather than query the database for population.
If this solves the problems that we're experiencing, then the web team will know where to look in order to come up with a more permanent solution, and we'll have access to lotteries in the interim (win-win!).
... still broken for me too.
The last thing the Devs tried, which fixed some folks, didn't work for my characters. And speaking of which... my characters are not updating correctly still in MyDDO...
