I have a pony from Tao Bao that I suspect many people would be interested in buying, but only two copies of her. One will go up on eBay, but the other one I'd like to offer to someone on the Arena at near cost. I'm not sure how to choose who will get the chance to buy the cheap one. What do you guys think?

Update: Most voters agreed that a random drawing would be the best way to choose a buyer, so here is a link to the drawing http://mlparena.com/mlp/index.php?topic=284436.0

And here is the pony at stake (ponies, actually, as I have added a runner up prize):

I'm thinking of 2 ponies this could possibly be.  ;)

Lucky dip! Ask people to put their names forward and then pull out one random name out...kind of like a prize draw!

*Curious* as to who this mystery baby is!

I voted for a random drawing. Its more fair that way. You could take names for a week, and that would give everyone a chance to see it who is looking for that pony. Not everyone is online every day ;)

Yep, I like this idea!   You could also offer it up to someone that's helped you out in the past. It's always nice to return the favor when you can. But if you want an across-the-board no-hurt-feelings random picking, a drawing is the way to go  :)

I think  a random drawing would probably be the most fun/fair for everyone, because for a HTF pony around these parts, it'll be snapped up in an instant for first-come-first-served. Ashlyne also mentioned offering it up first to someone who has helped you in the past... I think either of those solutions would be great :) and if it's Minty or Skywishes... and you do decide on a random drawing.... I REALLY hope I get some work soon to join in!!

I choose random.

If it's the two ponies I'm thinking of, please count me in as an interested party  :satisfied:

It's very kind of you to offer it here at close to cost.  :thumb:

Either way you decide to go I would be interested! I've been trying to get my hands on the rarity/celestia variants since we discovered them. I was lucky enough before the arena moved to get the one with rarity's symbol and celestia's eyes from the wonderful banditpony at close to what it cost her. But still looking for the one with celestia's sun symbol and rarity's eyes and colors, oh and the white celestia in case we never get one :)


Either way there will be interest, and I will keep my eyes out for this!

You could have a auction and give the money to charity

I like the idea of the random drawing (and I'd be interested!) :)
