    Love to join in, but unfortunatly still have worked out how to tag my deals. Michelle2154
  • elegantegotist
    Time for one of lilpretzels wonderfully helpful pictorials I think !
  • nod
    LOL that would be great :) Hint hint.....
  • elegantegotist
    Just wondering how will the 4 prizes be worked out ? Is it just a random draw ?
  • nod
    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 :)

    http://chadscartoons.com/b/wp-content/uploads/2007/09/santa-elf-cartoon.jpg HERE IS HOW TO PLAY SANTA'S LITTLE HELPER 1. At 9pm AEST Wednesday , I will post a clue in hunt Down Santa’s Little Helper 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 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 $20 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! Here's an example, which I recommend 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 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!

  • admin EDITOR
    Its a little bit tricky in that you need to figure out what the clue is and if you are wrong you may end up searching for the incorrect word. But if your correct you'll soon know.
  • Keeys
    I thought I knew what I was doing but its clear now I have no idea pmsl
  • nod

  • Wally

  • MamaK

  • admin EDITOR

  • admin EDITOR
    Wally;30171
    Darn my obtuse detector is not working on the first ckue!! d;oh
    You got a christmas tree in your house wally ?? Apart from the roof what have you got on top of it ? Google images is your friend.
  • Wally
    Wow Nice work!
  • elegantegotist
    MamaK;30174
    all sent :D I hope I was quick enough- were we just meant to send the pics?
    That's what I did. I used the little IMG button to make a picture.
  • Wally
    Either a star or Fairy?
  • MamaK
    yep- twas an easy one :) but fun (if I've done it correctly that is- if not I'm stuffed :P)
  • nod
    We have 2 winners already... Elegant and MamaK I need to give up on these games I think... I make them way too easy :(
  • admin EDITOR
    Wally;30180
    Either a star or Fairy?
    Or a fairy of biblical sorts :) That clue was actually a bit of a curly one. I see mostly stars when I search google images
  • Keeys
    OMG finished ....told you I suck lol I have a problem how come i'm looking for clue to but it has clue three written on it?? :(
  • admin EDITOR
    But dont stop yet as remember there are 4 prizes.
  • nod
    in the first clue it is a SHE well they are
  • admin EDITOR
    Keeys;30184
    OMG finished ....told you I suck lol I have a problem how come i'm looking for clue to but it has clue three written on it?? :(
    Which would probably mean you've skipped over clue two and managed to chance apon three - score I say.
  • Keeys
    not really lol Ok I'm giving up think I'm to tired thinking of other things ...goodluck to those who keep going and to the winners so far :)
  • admin EDITOR
    can you guys PM nod - not me :) I've forwarded on all your PM's which are timestamped.
  • elegantegotist
    I think it all depends if you 'click' with the clue. I found the last comp really hard with the anagrams - it took me forever to figure out some of those. Like nachos and ten straws.
  • carolina88
    um did i finish? i don't know how many clues are there?
  • admin EDITOR
    Keeys;30188
    not really lol Ok I'm giving up think I'm to tired thinking of other things ...goodluck to those who keep going and to the winners so far :)
    I can give you clues if you want keeys :) - we dont mind helping
  • admin EDITOR
    carolina88;30191
    um did i finish? i don't know how many clues are there?
    there's 4 of them carolina. You've got two.
  • MamaK
    nod;30182
    We have 2 winners already... Elegant and MamaK I need to give up on these games I think... I make them way too easy :(
    You did great Nod- I thought it was well thought out:D
  • ScarletRubies
    Admin, Nod used one of your posts for the last clue, and it says "PM me", which in that post is you... which is why we're buggin' ya.
  • nod
    Fairybelle claims prize number 3 :)
  • fairybelle
    YAY - I didnt think i was doing it right but apparently i was, thanks Nod
  • admin EDITOR
    :D - that explains a lot. That'd be PM Nod not me. I love chaos. :D
  • MamaK
    there was actually 5, can I help with clues too? I found the anagrams too difficult for me too elagant, even with the help of a anagram website
  • admin EDITOR
    for sure mamak - we've got one more prize (unless someone has claimed it) who wants obscure and useless clues. :D
  • elegantegotist
    MamaK;30200
    there was actually 5, can I help with clues too? I found the anagrams too difficult for me too elagant, even with the help of a anagram website
    Ooh i don't think we should be giving Nod any ideas because I liked this one :o The anagram one was definitely trickier !
  • Wally
    I sent url links is that ok or must be pieced together?
  • admin EDITOR
    I think links are fine wally - but nod will soon let you know.
  • ScarletRubies
    Yeah, see, Wally, that's where I didn't read the rules either..... man, I hate making mistakes like that! If I'm right, you're too late anyway, but Nod wants the image sent to her - I guess stuck together correctly.
  • admin EDITOR
    You just need to get the pictures (or links) in order. We're not too strict around here.
  • nod
    And Wally takes out number 4... sorry Ruby... you were so close but the time stamp on the PM meant you were just behind Wally :( So we have Elegant Mamak Fairybelle and Wally .... walking away with $20 vouchers.... I will send those tomorrow: Stores one offer: DStore Deals Direct OO.com.au Play4Me And Wishlist though I need to check if they do $20 And the newbie prize goes to.... Carolina88 SO if you guys can PM me your choice and the email address you want them sent too Off to see about the temp prize
  • MamaK
    the rules were a little tricky but links should be fine after all they still lead to the same place
  • admin EDITOR
    Well done to all of those who got themselves a prize. It was a little chaotic but we're more about you lot having a bit of a laugh than being perfect in the execution.
  • Keeys
    thank god thats over lol and yes I confirmed I'm a LOOSER!!! haha
  • Wally
    phew! sorry Ruby Woulda been another 10 mins for me to put the picture together :o Took ages for the penny to drop about the Christmas Angel D'oh! :rolleyes:

    dont worry keeys - I'll join you in those sorts of competitions. I'm crap at the clues. I just draw a blank.
  • ScarletRubies
    Well, I can't get too narky about the pic, Wally - my first message to Nod was trying to make a sentence out of the file names! :s Apparently, I can't read rules!
  • nod
