    [COLOR="Green"][FONT="Comic Sans MS"][SIZE="5"][B]And here we are... finally we arrive at Leg 5 ... the last challenge in our Best Bargain Race[/B][/SIZE]

    [SIZE="4"]Leg 4 turned out to be a bit of a doddle really so we figure we need to make the top three contenders work for their placing this week... There will be enough points up for grabs to allow quite a few of the current contenders to get a placing.. so don't be discouraged. And of course there are the prizes to pick up along the way :)[/SIZE][/FONT][/COLOR]

    [FONT="Arial Black"][B][SIZE="4"][COLOR="Black"]So what are we up to this week..... We are heading to the bottom of the sea and back FuLL DETAILS TO BE POSTED IN THE NEXT HOUR

    Golfy has "Eye of the Tiger' on trying to get revved up for the big leg 5 :cool:

    BRING IT ON!
  • admin2008/03/31 09:54:51
    Do we get a video of you running up a large set of stairs while pumping the air golfy ?
  • craftykiwi2008/03/31 10:17:14
    Any idea what time the nightly challenges are on? Don't have access to a computer after 9pm for some of this week but would still love to take part.

    LOL. I'll leave that one for those with a good imaginations ;) :D
  • golfwidow2008/04/01 18:27:14
    Just checking something...

    Are BUMPS pictures etc counted as comments?
    Does it HAVE to be related to the deal it is posted in?
    Only comments in HOT DEALS?
    What about posts in these sorts of threads?
    Carrying on a sort of conversation in threads?
    What if you make two comments in same thread but different days?
    Thanks :)
  • nod2008/04/01 18:35:15
    1. Bumps will only be counted if they are constructive ie bumping a code cos it still works and you have found a bargain
    2. Absolutely yes!!!!!!!!!! No exceptions
    3. Comments can be in any part of the forum but please once again dont just post for the hell of it
    4. Yes but once again they need to be constructive
    5. No - if you are just waffling to get the posts in
    6. Fine

    The comp is to find and crown (or give a special Buckscoop award to) the three top bargain hunters. The comments in this Leg are designed to see if you can use the forum, to get the max out of your posts and others, and help each other out expanding on deals etc... The ruling on the comments is subjective but fair :)

    It fits in with the deal posting. We ask that deals posted are ones that you actually feel are good value and would seriously consider buying yourself. That is what the site is all about. It does not help anyone if we all posted random stuff just cos we wanted to win a prize. Not much of a community spirit then :D
  • Gallifrey2008/04/03 00:05:56
    we post our deals or comments before midnight, do we have to put our links into (Leg 5 links: Please post ALL links to deals and comments in here) before midnight too, or can they go in just after midnight please?
  • Wally2008/04/03 01:12:37
    At the risk of being a pedant and a spoilsport (but the cheaters have already seen to that) ;)

    How closely is the condition that the submitted Deals 'deals must be available to ALL Buckscoop members' to be observed?

    Just I have noticed that certain offers are not available online and the stores are not in all States .. and some are only open to certain categories of people?
  • Gallifrey2008/04/03 01:30:55
    mmmmmmmmm interesting Wally, that could wipe out a LOT of our deals!
  • craftykiwi2008/04/03 11:53:42
    Yes Gallifrey nearly all our deals!! If Wally was here in a previous leg that was only "internet deals" it was super hard to find things to qualify especially if others had already got to them first.
  • Gallifrey2008/04/03 13:46:43
    just asking again:

    we post our deals or comments before midnight, do we have to put our links into (Leg 5 links: Please post ALL links to deals and comments in here) before midnight too, or can they go in just after midnight please?
  • Keeys2008/04/04 00:45:08
    the comments thing is to hard I have no idea what I should and shouldn't include cause I just say whatever comes to mind when posting then when it comes to the comp I think that little comment surely can't count, or the fact I posted 10 times in one thread surely you can't count each of those posts .....is all to much for my little brain :( :(
  • admin2008/04/04 07:37:10
    we just want to make you lot blabber lots
  • Keeys2008/04/04 09:40:20
    never a problem there I didn't think ;)
  • Gallifrey2008/04/04 13:59:37
    is a deal counted that isnt X is having a sale, but X has free shipping please??
  • lilpretzel2008/04/04 14:39:58
    I'm sure that's acceptable as you must make a purchase to obtain free shipping.

    But I'm always wrong lately :whistling:
  • geo782008/04/04 15:56:41
    i have a question too: can we enter the deals that exceed the maximum of 3 per day as comments?
  • nlafanclub2008/04/05 01:42:33
    I also have a question: Can somebody else please find deals & post them under my name, as I have just been too tired & under the weather myself these past few weeks to get as involved as I'd like.....? Anyone...? :neutral:

    No...? :(

    :cry:



    [LEFT]:p[/LEFT]
  • admin2008/04/05 01:53:52
    :D - you make me chuckle.

    Geo - nod will be along to answer your question sometime soon I suspect.

    How rude that no one offered to help you out. I would but hey... I can't enter anyway :D

    The links need to be posted the day the comments/deals are made as stated in the rules.

    Gets too messy otherwise :)
  • nod2008/04/05 10:20:14
    Yes to the free shipping deal :)

    And we want you to blabber but think about what you blabber about :)

    Well is some threads... deals mostly
  • geo782008/04/05 10:21:29
    i noticed that some members included those deals as comments....

    anyway, could you please remind members to stop posting useless comments for the competition? sorry, but some deals and some useful comments are getting lost in the diversity of such comments...if a lot of comments are not useful, a member won't read the whole list of comments and miss the useful ones. and the average buckscoopers cannot take advantage of some useful advice...
    nod
    No sorry :)
  • nod2008/04/05 11:08:32
    Last challenge in Leg 5 :)

    And as promised this one is something lovely and trivial ..And the as always this challenge is open to ALL Buckscoopers.

    We can only have one winner this time. The prize is a $10 voucher and 10m in the race

    You have 48 hours.. (well a little more) to find a picture of a famous picture or painting... and take this, the Buckscoop logo http://www.buckscoop.com.au/images/buckscoop_logo.gif and incorporate the logo into the piccie

    Easy.. and yes the judges will be me, the donkey, Lilpretzel and Brad... and yes this is very subjective :)
  • nod2008/04/05 11:09:30
    Couple of notes... you can just use the ice cream cone ... you need to post your piccie in here :)
  • nod2008/04/05 11:10:40
    oops and the piccies must be posted by midnight Monday 7th - WST :)

    The winner will be announced on Tuesday along with the overall winners :)
  • Keeys2008/04/05 11:11:53

  • craftykiwi2008/04/05 11:35:42

    After posing for this long that's just what I needed!
    And with all the Hot Deals on Buckscoop I might be able to finally find a new dress after all these years.

    That's funny - I was literally just wondering how I could use "Starry Night" & couldn't come up with anything. Good show, photographyisart! :)
