BUCKSCOOP Short and Sweet ............. random vouchers up for grabs

Posted By: nod, posted 2008/01/21 03:05
So it is comp time again.... and to keep life interesting here in Buckscoop land I thought that it would be nice to play something a little different

Since we have a lovely long weekend coming up and Valentines is just around the corner..... we are going to start a comp called ' Short and Sweet'

The first part of the game (there will be four) will start 9AM EDST (I have learnt my lesson) with the winner being announced 9PM EDST tomorrow night

All the rules and more details will pop up tomorrow morning at 9am ....

    We are also gong to celebrate [COLOR="Red"]Australia Day[/COLOR] with a good old fashioned quiz on the [COLOR="Blue"]Wednesday 30th Jan[/COLOR]

    Yeah we know that it is a few day after the big event but we figure we are not going to get too many of you around on the Pub Hol day or the 26th so Wed 30th it is :D

    Details up soon .... [B]Hint hint.. brush up on your Oz trivia [/B]

    Today's [COLOR="Red"]short and sweet[/COLOR] is super simple... the deal with highest temperature today wins.....
    The deal can not be a freebie or a comp and must be available to every Buckscoop member.
    The winner will be announced at 9PM EDST tonight

    So is it the hottest deal posted today or the hottest deal on the site? I assume it is the hottest new deal from today.
  • nod2008/01/22 09:34:52
    And no voting on your own deals :)

    This is a little deal posting warm up ... your challenges will become a little bit more interesting each time :twisted:

    For all those that have not posted a deal before there is a link in my signature which is very useful

    And to clarify .... [COLOR="Blue"]next week[/COLOR] we will be having the [COLOR="Blue"]quiz on the 30th [/COLOR] and another short and sweet deal on another day.
    The day and the comp will be announced at the end of this week.

    [B][COLOR="Blue"]The winner will be the member that posts a deal today that reaches the highest temperature by 9PM EDST tonight[/COLOR][/B]

    Nice and simple

    [B]And careful with your cold votes too :)

    If you do vote cold, Buckscoop forum etiquette asks that you pop a comment in to let us know why you don't think it is a very good deal

  • robby2008/01/22 11:11:17
    thanks for sending out the remainder...i cannot understand why a good deal in my view (120GB Seagate portable HDD) has -8 already...

    Buckscoop Admins and Mods will be keeping an eye on this during the competition,
    as well as excessive unexplained cold votes, so please try and play fair. ;)

  • sab9882008/01/22 21:03:51

  • nod2008/01/22 21:12:28
    LOL
    Give me a break I was looking :D

    Great effort guys... :)
    Thanks for joining in.
    I will say that there was a bit of cold voting without comment which goes a bit against the spirit of the site and I do ask that if we do run a comp like this that you play fair.

    For the the next game All those found voting cold without comment and voting on their own deals will be disqualified :twisted:

    So... that all said... the winner of the first short and sweet is..... [B]Sab988 with this COTD deal[/B]
  • nod2008/01/22 21:13:31
    PM me with the email you want your voucher sent to Sab988 :)
  • hellwolf2008/01/22 21:14:35
    Good work Sab988 :)
  • nod2008/01/22 21:15:51
    [COLOR="Red"][B]Next Short and Sweet will be a little different. [COLOR="Black"]The details will be announced at 9am EDST 24 hours before the comp starts .....
    [/COLOR]
    Hint it will be one day next working week.. but not Wednesday :w00t:

  • Keeys2008/01/22 23:36:45
    Gotta love school holidays......I totally missed this thread till now lol

    This time next week I'll have a boy sick with worry about his first day of high school.

    One week to go till I get my life back hehe
  • admin2008/01/23 09:53:52
    :D - first day of high school...... tell him you gotta worry about the last day - not the first.
  • Keeys2008/01/23 09:59:43
    haha he'll be ok hes more worried about the bus than school I think. Hes only cought the bus to school 2 times and its wasn't a good experience so we took him off. The local bus is full of ratbag kids, that seem to like picking on kids a little different. This bus he will catch now is very strict out of town bus he caught it to high school one morning last year so he could check it all out but hes still worried. Wants me to drive him the first day but I have to be strong and say no and put him on the bus or else he'll just keep trying me. Its an hour to school which would mean a 2hr round trip for me :o

    Like everything the waiting just adds to the stress, cause you imagine all the awful things. So we are going camping this weekend to take his mind off it all a little. ;)

    I'll be more worried come Wednesday than him. He'll get there and love it and I'll be the one left to image what awful things are happening hehe
  • admin2008/01/23 10:11:49
    :) - just dont be hopping on the bus with him.

    I remember catching the bus into school a few times after staying out on friends farms. It was like a little clique with an age, reputation and sex related pecking order. Of course the girls were all good and the boys were nearly all bad.
  • nod2008/01/28 11:54:25
    hint hint... this very well may pop up on thursday ;)
  • nod2008/01/31 01:13:19
