    This week has seen Buckscoop reach a new milestone A WHOPPING 2000 MEMBERS !!!!!! http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/7/71/Piratey,_vector_version.svg/180px-Piratey,_vector_version.svg.png H And to celebrate we decided to have our very first BUCKSCOOP TREASURE HUNT The Treasure Hunt will commence 9PM AEST Monday 24th September :twisted: HERE IS HOW TO PLAY 1. At 9pm AEST, I will post a clue in Treasure Hunt thread 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 chest containing a special word. You must record the word you find. Here is the chest and an example of a word: http://buckscooper.googlepages.com/chest.gif PLASMA 5. Answer all 6 clues and make a sentence with the words. This does need to make sense :rolleyes: 6. The first 5 people to PM me, Nod with the correct sentence in the title of their PM wins a $20 Deals Direct Gift Voucher! 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! All of the clues will appear in deals that have been posted in the last 6 months. ____________________ Here's an example, which you can test out right now if you like. 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 5 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 on 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 1 chance to PM your entry to ]Nod, so make sure you are completely happy with your answer before you do so. If you submit more than one, you will be disqualified. The Treasure Hunt might sound a little complicated, but just stick to the guidelines above, and you’ll more than likely find the correct answer. All questions to be posted in the thread in 'Hot Deals'

    jayne;17065
    I found a few... think I'm stuck on one... but of course I cannot enter the comp!
    what are you stuck on jayne ??
  • Wally
    Bit confused Do we have to collect words to make a sentence - or just ste the items threads?
  • fairybelle
    this is frustrating.... im not sure i understand what im supposed to be doing?
  • admin EDITOR
    hellwolf;17064
    Can I have a hint with the one containing the words "golden amber"?
    :D - its not a pony - I got stuck on that one for a while.
  • Emma EDITOR
    Everyone must be busy hunting... I got a bit confused on the same one as hellwolf... !
  • admin EDITOR
    Wally - grab the words that are in bold - they make a sentence
  • hellwolf
    Well I'm still stuck.
  • admin EDITOR
    fairybelle - take the clue - figure out what word you think is the answer. Go to advanced search in the bulletin board - put that word into the search interface and it will return one or more threads containing that word. Have a look in the threads returned and the right ones will have a word in bold and another clue. Get the next clue and repeat the process until you have the last clue. The words in bold form a sentence - the sentence wins you the prize.
  • nod
    stuck on which clue Hellwolf??
  • hellwolf

    the cat? what do they say?
  • Wally
