    Time for one of lilpretzels wonderfully helpful pictorials I think !
  • nod2007/12/11 19:39:16
    LOL
    that would be great :)

    Hint hint.....
  • elegantegotist2007/12/11 19:39:57
    Just wondering how will the 4 prizes be worked out ? Is it just a random draw ?
  • nod2007/12/11 19:43:11
    I am putting the final touches to the details now... the game is basically a treasure hunt of sorts.... with a twist ;)

    The first 4 people to finish the task get the vouchers... and of course if we can lure any complete Buckscoop newcomers to join the game, one of them will also take a $20 voucher


    And I figure I may just hand out a little something to the member that has the highest temp for their ' Santas Little Helper' Deal :)
  • ScarletRubies2007/12/11 19:45:48

    [B]HERE IS HOW TO PLAY SANTA'S LITTLE HELPER
    [/B]

    1. At 9pm AEST Wednesday , I will post a clue in [B][B][COLOR="Red"]hunt Down Santa’s Little Helper thread[/COLOR][/B][/B] in the Hot deals forum
    2. Solve the clue. This will be a one word answer
    3. Use the advanced search facility in the ‘Hot deals’ section of the forum (upper right in the forum toolbar), to find all deals related to that word. Keep the search for 'Show all threads'
    4. In the first comment for one of those deals you will find the next clue and a link. You must record the link you find.

    Here is an example of what you will find:

    http://img530.imageshack.us/img530/6944/36167ld2.gif
    “And a text link to collect”

    5. Answer all the clues and you will have all the pieces of the picture. So you just need to put them in the right order
    6. The first FOUR (4) people to PM me, Nod with the correct picture of Santa’s Little Helper in their PM wins a [B]$20 Gift Voucher[/B]!


    All the clues can be found in the “Hot Deals” forum by simply searching and a bit of hunting. It is recommended that you go to the advanced search function, and select “Hot Deals” in the bottom left search box, “Search in forum”. This will narrow down your hunt considerably. Type the cryptic clue answer in the keyword box (will never be more than a single word), click search and start looking for those treasure chests!

    [COLOR="Blue"]Here's an example, which I recommend you can test out right now if you like.
    [/COLOR]
    Clue:
    Enjoys wearing blue and red lycra and surfing the web
    Answer:
    Spiderman
    Your search
    11 posts are found under the search
    And here is where you find the next clue




    ____________________



    Rules:
    · Admin’s decisions are final in all cases.
    · The competition is open to any Buckscoop member (excluding moderators!) – if you are not yet a member, simply register here. Registration is of course free!
    · Creating multiple accounts for personal gain will disqualify members from the comp! Play fair.
    · The first FOUR members to PM Nod the correct answers, and who have abided by these rules, will win 1 x $20 Deals Direct voucher.
    · All clues can be found in the “Hot Deals” forum.
    · The clue locations or answers should not be discussed in this thread, or anywhere else in the Buckscoop site – if you do so, your message will simply be removed.
    · If you bump an old thread simply to show others the answer, you will be disqualified from the competition.
    · You will only get ONE (1) chance to PM your entry to Nod, so make sure you are completely happy with your picture before you do so.


    The game might sound a little complicated, but just stick to the guidelines above, and you’ll more than likely find the correct answer.
    If you have joined in on one of the Treasure Hunts then you will know exactly what to do :)

    All questions to be posted in the ‘Hunt Down Santas Little Helper’ thread in 'Hot Deals'


    GOOD LUCK!
