    how many legs in this race? Is it a centepede? :D
  • craftykiwi2008/03/24 13:09:01
    No - not that many!! We'd all be worn out by then. I'm pretty sure there are only five.
  • craftykiwi2008/03/24 13:10:19
    Are you back all ready Keeys? Hope you had a good trip.
  • craftykiwi2008/03/24 13:13:36
    Oops! Excuse the spelling - must be all that choccy hyping me up so brain is too far ahead of my fingers as I type. The again I think I have been very good this year.
  • Keeys2008/03/24 13:56:05
    Yep I'm back aleady lol sounds like you wanted me gone longer :( *sob*

    The kids had an amazing time. Went to the swimming on Saturday night and saw those amazing world records!!! Yesterday went to the easter show. Got home at about 1.30 thismorning. Kids are ferral today. Going to go take them to the pool and train them hard since they seen to have so much energy ;)
  • craftykiwi2008/03/24 14:42:31
    Didn't mean to make it sound like I wanted you gone longer - enjoy your posts. Just surprised you were back so quickly. Hopefully the kids sleep well tonight.
  • nod2008/03/24 20:25:53
    So in light of the questions. This is what we are going to do for Leg 4 ... Lilpretzel and I will chat about the rules tonight - cover all angles. The details shall be posted tonight but the comp will not start until tomorrow evening and it will give everyone a whole day to pose questions about the rules

    Ok .... this is the new decree... 24h for you all to mull over the rules... all questions to be asked and answered in that time and then we can start the comp. It means that the comp will stretch over until Sat but I dont think that will be too much of a problem :)

    [SIZE=4][COLOR="Blue"]I have decided to keep this week nice and simple after the furious deal posting that has taken place over the last 3 weeks. It will of course mean that Leg 5 will sort you all out for the ultimate prize :D

    So here is the juice..... [SIZE=5]Simply... tomorrow night your task will be to decipher the message in the bottle.... To enter the comp all you need to do is post up one deal OR if the deals are light on the ground you can post 5 comments in the forum ... that is it :)

    The message in the bottle comp will start 930 pm EDST tomorrow night.

  • Keeys2008/03/25 09:23:47
    I know we are only on leg 4 but you mention leg 5 can I ask when it will be run? I have to go away for a couple of days the following week :( Maybe I'll have to take my laptop with me and see if I can't find somewhere to log in hehe
  • craftykiwi2008/03/25 09:59:39
    We will be away too next week so will be searching out internet access to take part at least for part of the time. Does that indicate the start of an addiction?? Would be a shame though to get so close and then not be able to take part in the final leg.
  • admin2008/03/25 11:11:59
    :) - I reckon your right ...
  • nod2008/03/25 11:57:53
    :D
    Leg five will finish up next week. And at the end we will find our 3 Best Bargain Buckscoopers :w00t:

    The 'special' prize will be announced next week :D
  • nod2008/03/25 12:29:44
    And posting starts now ;)

    We're out for the next couple of nights so I may not get to play, but can I just clarify that:
    1. posting has started now
    2. all deals need to be posted by 8pm AEDST TONIGHT (Tuesday) [which is 6.30pm for the silly Territorian]
    3. That TOMORROW night (Wednesday at 9.30pm AEDST - 8pm Ruby time) we get a message in a bottle and one assumes instructions on how to reply/win?

    I reckon that assuming I find a deal (or make another couple of posts!) I could play, but I won't be around tomorrow night in time... :( Sigh - the high cost of a social life!
  • golfwidow2008/03/25 17:02:58
    Doesn't it suck when a real life affects your online life! :D Over Easter i barely got near my computer due to real life influences, LOL.
  • admin2008/03/25 19:25:44
    Just to let you all know - there will be a slight delay in getting tonights events kicked off - probably 1/2 hour or so....
  • photographyisart2008/03/25 19:33:54
    Just wondering if the winners from the temperature comp from last week have been announced yet?
  • photographyisart2008/03/25 19:38:37
    never mind :S didnt check the obvious place :P
  • craftykiwi2008/03/25 20:00:04
    Is the start of deciphering the message in the bottle tonight or tomorrow (Wed)?? Not sure when the instructions were posted so hence when is 'tomorrow' ??
  • admin2008/03/25 20:06:22
    I expect to be able to answer that for you pretty soon crafty :)
  • craftykiwi2008/03/25 20:10:16
    Thanks Admin.
  • admin2008/03/25 20:26:42
    Ok - right you lot - I have instructions.... Nods got connection problems so your stuck with me doing this.... I can guarantee that I'll confuse you all with my mashup.

    Make sure you stick your head in here 9.30pm EDST to see what the little puzzler is for tonight.

    Up for grabs are two prizes - both have a $5 voucher and 10 points attached to them. More details to follow......

    Tonight crafty. The message in a bottle frivolity will be up here in an hour. You need to decipher the message in a bottle before tomorrow night (wed) to enter the next leg of the comp.... and if your quick enough you may win a prize tonight.
  • Keeys2008/03/25 20:29:36
    yay another game ...ok peoples you know I'm not much competition so who is going to??
  • craftykiwi2008/03/25 21:04:51
    Since you're doing so well on the leader board after last week's success, may give us others a small chance to make up some ground. Will see if I can stick around ...
  • Keeys2008/03/25 21:12:18
    I need to be good at deal posting I'm so crap at the game part ;)
  • craftykiwi2008/03/25 21:16:07
    Since you're so good at the deal posting do you know if we have to post 1 deal a day (or 5 comments a day) or is it just 1 for the week? Rules weren't very clear.
  • admin2008/03/25 21:17:10
    :D - this one is a brain teaser..... but you've got plenty of time to decipher it.
  • admin2008/03/25 21:30:51
    Ok .... lets get started. Image first and then instructions....

    Now.... for those of you with a flip top head - remove your brain and put it on the table next to your keyboard.... give it a massage and talk to it nicely - it'll need it....


    The image above contains the scrambled message from the bottle, letter by letter. What you have to do is take all the letters and assemble it all into a sentence. Three prizes are up for grabs. The first one of you to PM me with the correct answer will get a $10 voucher and 20 points towards your tally. The new two runners up to PM me will each get a $5 voucher and 10 tally points.

    Those of you wanting to enter the next leg of the competition HAVE TO decipher the message by 8pm tomorrow night and of course you need to have posted a deal or 5 comments and put the links to them into this thread.

    Now - clues for you.
  • photographyisart2008/03/25 21:41:24
    isnt it

    "Up for grabs:
    The winner will take a $10 voucher and 20 tally points
    The two runners up will take $5 voucher and 10 tally points"
  • admin2008/03/25 21:44:10
    First clue - the big letters in white that spell LOST arent part of the ones you need to decipher (but they're a humungous big fat clue for you). You only need the orange letters and punctuation.

    Second clue - the punctuation are full stops and therefore tell you how many sentences you need.

    Third clue. The image and its subject tell you everything you need to know to decipher the message.

    Fourth clue. The message looks a little like this (think back to Hangman days)

    [SIZE=4]L[/SIZE]_ _ [SIZE=3]T[/SIZE] ... [SIZE=3]ON[/SIZE] ... [SIZE=3]A[/SIZE] ... [SIZE=3]D[/SIZE] _ [SIZE=3]S[/SIZE] _ _ [SIZE=3]T[/SIZE] _ [SIZE=3]D[/SIZE] .... [SIZE=3]I[/SIZE] _ [SIZE=3]L[/SIZE] _ [SIZE=3]N[/SIZE] [SIZE=3]D[/SIZE]. .. [SIZE=3]N[/SIZE] [SIZE=3]E[/SIZE] _ [SIZE=3]D[/SIZE] .. [SIZE=3]T[/SIZE] _ .. [SIZE=3]C[/SIZE] [SIZE=3]R[/SIZE] _ [SIZE=3]W[/SIZE].


    Every once in a while I'll pop a letter or two into that line to give you all a hand. Ignore the ".........", I've just had to put them in to stop vbulletin from chomping the spaces I put into the sentences.
  • admin2008/03/25 21:46:41

    isnt it

    "Up for grabs:
    The winner will take a $10 voucher and 20 tally points
    The two runners up will take $5 voucher and 10 tally points"


    :D - your asking me.... I'm just the loser that comes along every once in a while to confuse you all..... (I guess i'll be finding out the answer)
  • photographyisart2008/03/25 21:47:56
    dont say that

    and the up for grabs part is from this thread up a few posts by nod

    and this sounds hard :S
  • admin2008/03/25 21:52:35
    so first letter is up ... to help you.
  • photographyisart2008/03/25 21:53:31
    thank you :)
  • admin2008/03/25 21:53:49
    it'll help if you like trashy american TV series - and of course google is your friend.
  • photographyisart2008/03/25 21:58:36
    google isnt being very friendly right now :P lol
  • Keeys2008/03/25 21:59:56

  • Keeys2008/03/25 22:07:52

  • admin2008/03/25 22:08:51
    photographyisart;43084
    google isnt being very friendly right now :P lol


    I should say - google images is your friend. The big humungous clue in the image is a big help to getting started..

    And of course I've stuck a second letter in there for you all.
  • Keeys2008/03/25 22:12:17
    I've run out of vowels :( :(

    I think I have the first bit but then I've run out of vowels for the send bit so assume I have it wrong :(
  • craftykiwi2008/03/25 22:17:01
    Me too. Seem to need more vowels as well.
  • admin2008/03/25 22:20:06
    I've popped another letter in the hangmans clue for you all. I like teasing.

    Whose brain is hurting ??
  • photographyisart2008/03/25 22:21:07
    ME!!!

  • golfwidow2008/03/25 22:22:49

  • lilpretzel2008/03/25 22:22:59

    AGH!!! Gonna be dreaming about LOST all night now!


    Everything you need to know for the message has to do with LOST. :) - I'll go bang another letter or two in there.
