    [FONT="Comic Sans MS"][SIZE="5"] Not quite Giant Squid wrestling but you will certainly learn a thing or two about these rather interesting creatures. And we do like to educate our members. http://www.setsail.com/s_logs/dashew/Images_07/Giant_Squid_Mag_Bay__3375.jpg [SIZE="4"]The Game is simple: The first member to PM me the answer to all 6 questions grabs themselves a $10 voucher and 20 metres. The next two members will receive $5 and 15 metres[/SIZE] The quiz is of course open to all Buckscoopers .. you don't need to be in Leg 5 of the 'Best Bargain Race' to play [/SIZE][/FONT] [FONT="Comic Sans MS"][SIZE="4"] And here we go: 1. Giant Squids are _ E _ _ _ _ _ _ O _ S 2. What sex was the squid found in Tassie recently? 3. How do they breathe? 4. What do these guys have in common with our flying friends? 5. Who is their only known enemy? 6. Who is my closely related but bigger family member? 7. How many legs do I have (see picture)? http://www.book-fair.com/en/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2007/10/giant-squid.jpg Go to this page of deals in the Hot Deals section of the forum and find the hidden piccie. Send the piccie (it must be the piccie not a link) to me in your PM with your answers [/SIZE][/FONT]

    Well, nobody told me I wasn't s'posed to hack into Nods computer to get the answers :neutral:. I mean, it wasn't mentioned in the rules or anything :confused: [CENTER]:p [/CENTER]

    Sorry I missed the fun but congratulations to the winners when they are announced. Looking forward to Thursday's comp.
  • nod
    And we do have some winners this morning In first place we have Geo78 2nd place is awarded to Lisss and 3rd place goes to Golfwidow. I am not going to get out my soap box but I think that a few things need to be said. We are aware that a few odd things happen around comp times on Buckscoop. Some voting patterns of certain members is a little predictable and members that share IP's seem to crop up :( We don't want to be the big dragon with the comps.. they are all about getting users involved in the site, teaching them how it all works and building the community so that we can help each other find some good deals. And yeah it is nice to pick up the prizes along the way. All we ask is that you play fair. And when we do have comps that rely on voting please ensure that you are voting for a deal because you do actually think it is good value and not because you know the member. That goes for cold voting too .. vote on the merit of the deal and that is all
  • golfwidow
    Thanks Nod. Come on peoples play fair. Its all just a bit of fun. This is a great site and we don't want to see the fabulous Mods lose faith and turn it into a mass produced unfeeling site like many others out there. Just enjoy it all :)
  • Wally
    Can we have the answers and know which post had the picture?

  • craftykiwi
    I personally never Code Vote - don't like the idea. Am happy to add a constructive comment but that's all.

What do you think?
