    As long as you include your real e-mail address, I don't believe it matters what name you use.

    Nice, thanks.

    If you win, you may be asked for both names (just so the sites can post something nice about you winning). As long as you include the correct solution and a valid way contact you, you should be good to go.

    Sure. No problem.

    SO....has anyone actually found a link at Rebelscum, Custom Alliance, or the FFURG? I'm just wondering whatr the odds are of actually finding their links ;)

    In many cases, the banners are not randomly hidden. It might pay off to spend some time thinking about why a particular site might have put a banner in a particular spot.

    I got one at FFURG. (2x Bothan, 2x Snowtroopers, 1x Jedi Temple, 1x Yak Face)

    Thanks for the info both of you. I noticed that on some of the clues I already found Borsk. I'll see if I can apply that to the ones I need.

    BTW, when does the Contest officially end (assuming the 2-week deadline)?

    no one has said anything about an extension ... maybe they're waiting on me to do that .... but i would still say that there is a good chance it will be extended for another week.

    if it does not get extended, then the game will end this sunday night.

    I got X2 Jedi Temple, X2 Alltroops, X2 Snowtroopers, X2 Bothan Spy, X1 FFURG, X2 Rebelscum and X2 Yakface X0 Custom Alliance.

    13 out of 16

    Enough to make a guess, I really could not find the other three and damn did I look long and hard.

    I guess it helps if you know the site.

    Here's what I have so far:
    2x AllTroops.com
    2x TheBothanSpy.com
    2x JediTempleArchives.com
    2x Snowtroopers.ca
    1x YakFace.com

    A little off topic, but this just has to get off my chest.
    Just noticed that I'm too late to enter Watto's Lotto.
    And it seems my usual numbers were picked, but in a different order.
    Makes me wanna bang my head on the table, you know the feeling?
    Loussy time zones, when will I learn?!?

    Sounds like you've found the same ones I have Rancisis.

    Sorry to hear about your poor timing :(

    Here's a story for you. A trick to winning "in person" door prizes is to crumple up your entry (doesn't apply to "number ticket" drawings). Once you've filled out your entry, crumple it up however you like, and then uncrumple it some. When the drawer is rummaging around in the pot for a random entry, the not so random crumpled one trends to wind up drawn. I've won drawings like this before.

    Now the story: I was at a small comic/toy show in Baton Rouge several years ago now, and happened to get there late enough for a few hourly drawings, and the final grand prize drawing. Grand prize was $500 credit to any of the dealers there. OF course, you had to be present to win, and no too many people were left at the show(40 or less). So, they kept drawing name after name of people not there. It must have gone on for a good 5 minutes of drawing names. AND.........this was the one time I forgot to crumple my entry. :banghead:

    No luck with those two but you can solve it without their links.

    fyi, the contest has been extended an additional week.

    I'll have to double check this but you should be able to solve it w/o finding those banners.... but, if you want to find them anyway, i would look at things that seem to be related to the game or perhaps to one of the sites involved.

    also, once the game is complete, i will post direct links to the pages where all of the banners are hidden so that the people who played can see where they were and for anyone who didn't play, can go around and check it out.
