    [FONT=Arial Narrow][SIZE=4][SIZE=5]http://img397.imageshack.us/img397/7203/eajoketopmu5.jpg [FONT=Courier New][SIZE=3] What do you call a dumb bunny?: 1a. A hare brain. How can you tell which rabbits are the oldest in a group? 2a. Just look for the grey hares. What do you call a rabbit who tells jokes? 3a. A funny bunny. What happened to the egg when he was tickled too much? 4a. He cracked up. What part did the egg play in the movies? 5a. He was an "Egg-stra". What search engine do eggs use on the Internet? 6a. Egg-site! What day does an egg hate the most? 7a. Fry-days. How do you know when you're eating rabbit stew? 8a. When it has hares in it. What kind of jewellery do rabbits wear? 9a. 14 carrot gold. What do you get when you pour hot water down a rabbit hole? 10a. A Hot Cross bunny. [/SIZE][/FONT] [/SIZE][/SIZE][/FONT]

    A man was driving along the highway, and saw the Easter rabbit hopping across the middle of the road. He swerved to avoid hitting the rabbit, but unfortunately the Easter rabbit jumped in front of the car and was hit. The basket of eggs went flying all over the place. The driver, being a sensitive man as well as an animal lover, pulled over to the side of the road, and got out to see what had become of the rabbit carrying the basket. Much to his dismay, the colourful rabbit was dead. The driver felt so awful, he began to cry. A woman driving down the highway saw the man crying on the side of the road and pulled over. She stepped out of her car and asked the man what was wrong. "I feel terrible!" he explained, "I accidentally hit the Easter rabbit and killed it. Kids will be so disappointed. What should I do?" The woman told the man not to worry. She knew what to do. She went to her car trunk, and pulled out a spray can. She walked over to the dead, limp rabbit, and sprayed the contents of the can onto the furry animal. Miraculously the Easter rabbit came to life, jumped up, picked up the spilled eggs, waved its paw at the two humans and hopped down the road. 50 yards away the Easter rabbit stopped turned around, waved and hopped down the road. Another 50 yards down, he turned, waved and hopped another 50 yards. And waved again!!!! The man was astonished. He couldn't figure out what substance could be in the woman's spray can!! He ran over to the woman and asked, "What is in your spray can? What did you spray on the Easter rabbit?" The woman turned the can around so that the man could read the label. It said: "Hair spray. Restores life to dead hair. Adds permanent wave."

    [FONT="Comic Sans MS"][SIZE="6"] Leg Three Has arrived :) .... and we have roped the Easter Bunny in for good measure [/SIZE][/FONT] http://imagecache2.allposters.com/images/ADVG/479.jpg [FONT="Comic Sans MS"][SIZE="4"]This time around we have 2 parts to the weeks frivolities. The egg hunt and the deal mastery[/SIZE][/FONT] [SIZE="6"]The Easter Bunny:[/SIZE] [SIZE="4"]The Easter Egg Hunt is simple.

Your task is to find as many as you can.[/SIZE] [FONT="Comic Sans MS"][SIZE="6"]And now to the deal Mastery....[/SIZE] [SIZE="4"]The first two legs have been a 'limber up' really.... getting you all into the swing of things and getting to know your way around the board. But since we are after the Three Buckscoop Bargain Masters we do expect you to know your stuff. This leg is not about volume but about posting the 'best' deal you can find.. you may only post 3 for the entire week and still swoop the top prize[/SIZE][/FONT] [SIZE="6"]Details:[/SIZE] [SIZE="5"] 1. Each member can post a maximum of 3 deals a day 2. A minimum of 3 deals mus be posted for the week to enter 3. By 8pm EDST each evening YOU MUST chose your top deal for the day. Your top deal MUST be one of the 3 you have posted for that day 4. This top deal will then be entered into the official race.... The race to score the highest temp deal for the week. [/SIZE] [SIZE="4"]So this week is all about quality... you posting a deal that you truly believe is good value and allowing your fellow Buckscoopers to vote it up big. As always we have a few rules to get the wheels on the comp on track :)[/SIZE] [SIZE=6] For FULL details of the comps see ]here. Please read before you enter the competition and if you any questions, please feel free to pop them in here[/SIZE]

    A few extra notes: 1. Each member participating in the egg hunt will have their own little basket displayed in the forum - thread to be announced here 2. Tomorrow a thread will commence in the Comments and Site tips section and this is where all members MUST list their chosen deals for the day. If they do not appear in that thread by 8pm EDST they will not be included
  • lilpretzel
    [SIZE=4] Sorry guys just a little bit of important information left out: Each deal that you chose to post for the race must include the tag 'Easter’ and your username. For example [SIZE=5]‘easternod' http://img357.imageshack.us/img357/5447/easterbunny1qv5.gif [/SIZE] [/SIZE]
  • nod

  • nod

    pmsl thats so funny after my crap effort with this comp overall ...told you I only do well in game of chance. The kids will be thrilled especially Master 1 who is music mad!! So thanks :)
  • ScarletRubies
    Yay for you and your Happy, Lucky Feet!
  • hagefade
    Gratz I though the hint 'feet' was for the number, guess not cause the little picture had 8 toes so i guessed 8.
  • admin EDITOR
    I was having a good chuckle at the round up to get number 10 picker that was happening.
  • Keeys
    all those people online an no one wanted to play with us :(
  • admin EDITOR
    I suspect that may be because there are a lot of RSS feeders who probably didnt know the conversation that was going on.
  • Gallifrey
    Well I am just too late yet again LOL I will have to comadeer the computer tonight :twisted:
  • hagefade
    has it started yet?
  • Keeys
    I'm so crap at looking for eggs so not looking forward to this at all :(
  • hagefade
    COme on keeys, don't give up, you can do it!
  • Keeys
    oh you must not have seen me play many of these ;) I play to make everyone else feel good...someone has to come last ;) :p
  • hagefade
    That probably meaning that you're not trying.
  • hagefade
    Also has it started yet?
  • Keeys
    I'm very try hard ;)
  • hagefade
    Then you're probably using a bad method of finding them
  • Keeys
    looking here there and everywhere :( As far as I know this hasn't started yet for tonight can be anytime p till 11pm.
  • hagefade
    hope it's soon or i can't enter and i want to get the eggies!
  • Keeys
    so how should I be looking for eggs?? Other than looking up a chooks butt ;)
  • hagefade
    Well i have multiple tabs, have a quick look and close if not there.
  • golfwidow
    Im here and hoping i do better than last night LOL. I have to have a life during the day so out of the other part this week. Blasted easter! Ooops im sorry easter bunny. Show me all your eggies please :)
  • craftykiwi
    I'm here too, but think I'm still cross-eyed from last night.
  • ScarletRubies
    If it helps, GW, I go to the search page and pull up all the threads with more than one reply from the last week (given that the egg is in the first reply to a post, and that it's not older than seven days). Nod was so much gentler than LP - always kept hers to the Hot Deals board, but LP is a harder task master. She probably makes her kids brush their teeth and all... meanie! ;) I haven't started looking yet tonight... hope I'll have enough time in between kid wrangling and "poor husband" coddling! :)

    Ok Ok Ok ITS OFFICIAL I SUCK!!!!!!!!! LOL

    I'm still looking for number 9 (cos I'm a bit obsessive like that...) someone, send me a link; prove it's existence!!! :) Thanks for the game, LP.
  • ScarletRubies
    darn those flyaway apostrophes!
  • ScarletRubies
    ha! Second last on my list of 157 threads to check.... I *need* to figure out a way to shorten the list! :) Any tips?
  • craftykiwi
    I don't think there is a way to shorten the list. You just have to click & eliminate as quickly as you can and the remember which ones you've already clicked on so you don't waste time trying them again, which tends to happen towards the end.
  • Gallifrey
    has this started tonight yet?
  • craftykiwi
    No, am waiting too.

  • Gallifrey

  • photographyisart

  • Keeys
    ok so I only kinda sucked at that one ;)
  • lisss
    I am so confused :( How do we choose our favourite deal for the night?
  • craftykiwi
    It is hard lisss, but you just have to guess which of the 3 internet-based deals you chose for that day might get lots of hot votes and give your post a high temperature, and nominate that one. It has to be one you've added the tag 'Easterlisss' to, and only posts that are for internet-based stores, not retails stores, unless they have a special online deal. Hope that helps.
  • lilpretzel
    Thanks crafty. Remember to enter todays deal, it must be posted from midnight today and be posted over in the ]Leg Three: Nominate your top deal here before 8PM EDST :)
  • craftykiwi
    Then again I have a question too. If we post deals that you need to book or pay for online for a special discount or free item, etc. but need to go in person to collect or use does that qualify for this leg? Eg. flights, hotels, sports equipment. Think I have my 8 deals for this leg but am still looking and it can be quite difficult trying to find those that count.
  • geo78
    aren't "internet based" the deals that appear online, no matter if they are available online or offline? is my understanding and nobody seemed to state otherwise.
  • craftykiwi
    Rules for Leg 3 say "2. All deals MUST be internet based only ..." and members who have posted a deal that people need to go into a store to buy the item have been told earlier this week that the deal doesn't qualify for Leg 3. So just wanted to know if you order and pay online and then go to collect the item whether that counts?
  • geo78
    sorry, crafty...who were those members that have been told that such deals does not qualify for leg 3 and who said that? can you please send me a link? thanks!

  • ScarletRubies
    I assumed an internet deal was one that you could book/buy/pay for etc online - that you didn't need to go to a bricks'n'mortar store to actually buy/arrange. Obviously, you might USE the item outside your home - like a flight or what have you. So to me at least, an airfare sale is in, but a massage/haircut deal would be out... (but hey, don't take my word for it!). I excluded some of my own "deals" because they weren't physical products (like the oo.com.au price match policy which was new on me). Maybe they could count, but it seems like they're beyond the spirit of the game. I missed a night and decided I am too far behind to worry too much anyway. Gasp! Not like me at all!! :) As for last night, I was here till pretty late, I thought, LP... just bad timing. Sorry to miss the fun. I like where you hid the bunny.

    Here's one link:- http://www.buckscoop.com.au/forums/showthread.php?p=42211 I made a post earlier in the week to let people know because there seemed to be some confusion or people who hadn't noted that rule. I had seen heaps of instore deals and was frustrated I couldn't post them as part of the comp and wanted to give people a heads up to make it fair, in case it got to the end and they only then found out. You still have today and tomorrow to get 8 deals that do qualify, if you weren't aware of the rule.
  • craftykiwi
    Pity you missed the hunt last night Scarletrubies, but if you thought the other nights were hard with the short time frame, it was near impossible last night to find the basket after trying to answer all the questions, so well done to those who did. Like you I've eliminates some if not sure, so I think we're on the same page.
  • ScarletRubies
    You can still post the deals as regular deals though, even if they don't count in the comp. My understanding of the daily posting was that we needed to submit one deal a day max to be added to the temperature part of the comp - so you can post three deals a day as entries, but unless you select one and post it especially for LP to monitor the temp, it doesn't count for that component. There's the posting, the temperature and the hunting stuff all going on in the one comp, but not related really...
  • craftykiwi
    Yes, that's right and have posted another deal that didn't qualify and just left off my Easter tag. Don't think i have any hope re the temperature so only chance is to get the points for the 8 deals.
  • ScarletRubies
    :) I don't have much of a shot either, but I think I can live with it... I've done pretty well out of BS comps in the past!
  • craftykiwi
    Yes, definitely more important things to worry about, but these comps are sure good fun and am always partial to any trivia quiz.
  • ScarletRubies
    Absolutely! I really enjoyed those mental bingo games... stoopid fun! Not exactly trivia, of course. Which is good too. It's all good...

    My understanding of " Internet Deals " *Item must be available to all members online and in stock. *Purchase & Payment to be completed online. *Order can be delivered, emailed or picked up. Deals posted from online sites that members can't purchase from aren't " Internet Deals "
    I assumed an internet deal was one that you could book/buy/pay for etc online - that you didn't need to go to a bricks'n'mortar store to actually buy/arrange.
    Correct!
    So to me at least, an airfare sale is in, but a massage/haircut deal would be out...
    Correct! Airfares accepted plus I will also allow massage/haircut deals as these can be purchased online as gifts or for yourself. The point of having the " Internet Deals " was so we could actually see the deal was valid and items in stock. Final decision as always will be up to Admin, however, I will state my opinion. Sorry for any confusion this has caused, these competitions take a lot of time and energy to put together and run. We are only human and will make mistakes ;) :)

    if the competition was only for online deals, i believe it defeats the purpose of Buckscoop. i don't think admin or nod wanted to exclude deals that are available in the shops since sometimes those deals are the real bargains. if those would have been excluded from the competition, then members would not have had the chance to hear about them and to benefit (as crafti suggested, some members didn't post offline deals becuase they believed they won't help in the competition). noone from the moderators told me that "internet based deals" are the same as "online deals". the only feedback i had was about my "target deal" when i've been told that it doesn't qualify because it is a sale. i just thought, like i said before, "internet based deals" = "deals you can find on the internet". if there is a link you can provide to describe your deal, then it is fine...
  • craftykiwi
    I think Nod was the one that posted all the rules. My understanding on wanting 'internet only' stores was to challenge us more. And although the forum allows us to add all Hot deals so members can find bargains both instore and online, the whole concept of the Buckscoop site is Cashback co-op which from quick overview seems to be from online-based merchants.

    bugger I just got home right on 9.30 :( Oh well not like I missed much I mean I almost find as many eggs while not looking for eggs as I do when I do look for eggs. Seems very quiet in here tonight!
  • craftykiwi
    A lot harder tonight!
  • photographyisart
    yeah it was!
  • ScarletRubies
    Was it, Crafty? (How come?) I came in late and kind of had to fly through, but I thought it was "easier" tonight for some reason. I had my eye on the clock though - think I cut it fine.
  • photographyisart
    i was looking through all the different forums and hardly found any compared with other nights :S
  • craftykiwi
    Maybe ScarletRubies you started in the right area - I worked backwards and then found they were all in the last place I looked, so ran out of time.
  • lilpretzel
    Well done everybody! Yes, I tried to make it a bit harder tonight but you all still did well :D ScarletRubies Scored 9 :w00t: yovi Scored 8 craftykiwi scored 6 photographyisart scored 6
  • ScarletRubies
    Must have, Crafty.... I just did the same search as previous nights (more than one reply, from the last week), but I also picked up on someone else's tip to open multiple pages at a time. I think the search function returns about 25 threads per page, so I'd open that many at a time and then close them down one at a time. Or maybe I had some kind of adrenalin burst? :) I didn't get all 10 any night, I don't think? Maybe once.
  • photographyisart
    ooo todays the last night for it too!!
  • nod

  • lilpretzel
    http://img89.imageshack.us/img89/8652/thankyou13bk4lp2.gifnod for posting the winner . Sorry guys that was totally my fault for not posting the winner earlier :o I totally forgot I was given instructions to do so but I was a good girl and had the final totals ready :D
  • yovi
    Thanks to all i'm pretty sure all my friends will enjoy them...or not...:whistling:
  • nod
    Does that mean you do not eat chocolate Yovi? Would you prefer something else? No point in the person who put all the work in not being rewarded :D So let me know :) And with regards to the winners of the temp deal. I have had a read of the info (sorry about not being around.. thought I might have a few days off :o) and I stand by Lilpretzel. It was her leg of the comp after all. I would say that the Officeworks deal does not qualify as it was not an online deal ie you could not purchase the item online and more importantly it was not available to all Buckscoopers. It was only available to people who lived in Queensland. So technically it did not qualify, despite the fact that it was a very very good deal Sorry about the controversy but we tried to narrow the rules a bit this time to ensure that people put some thought into whether the item was a true bargain. 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
