I first thought it wasnt moving too, but between last night and tonight i have noticed a small change, it is not rising nearly as fast as the first one but that could be expected. Since the second bar popped up people have been questioning the donation drive moreso than with the first bar, that could affect the frequency and ammount of donations this time around.
That first bar shot right up when people thought it something would happen when it reached the end.
Even after my friend donated the 20k, the bar didn't even appear to move one bit.
Again, you're not going to make it move by donating. The admins plan the event times well in advance, they wouldn't let the users place the start of an event at, say, the middle of the night this thursday. It will be on a weekend or holiday. In this case, that means Friday, Saturday, or maybe a Sunday, though I doubt it.
Well the bar reaching 100% wouldnt necessarily trigger an event. They COULD have Gambino make an announcement at that point. That way they still have control over the event start time and date no matter when the bar reaches 100%
You know, something like:
"Thank you all for your generous donations, now you will all pay for attending the VonHelsen Ball!" and then he will launch a nuke out of the missle silo he's been building..
Of coarse thats just 1 of many possible options.. blaugh
