COINTEST: ACTUAL COINTEST HAS ARRIVED

Recommended Posts

OK those will work for me. If you have a slow connection it may take forever to get loaded though. What I've done is take my larger images and uploaded them in sections. The second one was a little sloppy in my cutting, but my theory works on how the images apear in the forum section, as one solid image, if I cut the sections carefully.

 

I will either present one large image in this way, or I will present a series of images in which only one will have a Coin to find.

 

Any feedback on these??

Whoa, these are HUGE! I almost think it makes it even harder with images these large since they don't really fit on the screen.

DITTO on the last 3 cut pictures..... the first picture is only a little larger than the screen, so it is not so bad.

That's less than half of the original I think. I hope you all have high speed!!

 

Imagine the last one, with three of four more sections...is that too much?? The first one is actually two halves as well. Keep in mind that the Coin will not have the destinct shape of Roswell, so You will need to see more detail.

I think I will have to try looking at these on another computer when I get home. They are way too blurry except for the immediate foreground for me to see much of anything :angry:

 

Never looked for a coin in the earlier practive sesions. Was there one in one of those pictures?

There's nothing to find in these, just testing how the method shows up in these forums. Yes...One Practice Round had a coin in it.

OK, I think I'm just about ready to move forward on the ACTUAL COINTEST!

 

Remember that to have your answers qualify, you must follow the rules.

 

The Game:

I will post a picture, or a series of pictures.

You are challenged to find the COIN in the image(s).

There will only be one COIN in the image(s).

 

The Play:

Examine the image(s).

Locate the hidden COIN.

Send in your answer.

 

The Rules:

All answers must come through my profile at GeoCaching.com.

You may submit one answer every 24 hours.

Do not reveal the answer in the public forum.

The winner in one Round is not qualified for the next Round(you may still play, but if you win you must select another player to receive the prize)

 

Winning:

The first 20 correct, qualified answers will be entered in a drawing for the COIN.

The drawing is as follows:

There are 50 chances to win.

1st answer = 10 chances

2nd-5th answers = 5 chances each

6th-10th answers = 2 chances each

11th-20th answers = 1 chance each

 

The Details:

Remember to send your answer through my profile...Click my name over on the left, then click on "Send Message". Any answers coming through Direct email, or through PMs in the forum, or through a letter, or over the phone, personal adds, pidgeon, Etc will be ignored. I will not respond to the answers whether correct or not. Each Round will remain open until I have received twenty correct, qualified answers. If I have not received enough answers in 7 days, the drawing will be held with the answers I have received. Remember that you may only submit one answer each 24 hours, extra answers within 24 hours will be deleted(only the first one will count). I will not say what coin is in the pictures, but will tell you after the Round is over. You may either describe the location to me, or provide a link to an image showing the location. There will be multiple rounds in this Cointest, so if you do not get it right the first time, do not worry.

 

 

The Final Word:

Remember that I make the rules, and I am the final judge of any correct answers. I reserve the right to ammend the rules, but will make refference to any ammendments in a seperate note.

 

My Wish to You:

Good Luck, and Have Fun!!

take a look at flickr.com

 

i post full rez images there for a variety of sharing art pics.

I'm working on ways to get the posted images to show in a larger format. Much image quality has been lost in the resize process. My photobucket can support a larger image than Groundspeak, so I may link to there, but it is still nowhere near the full 8MP, which I would like to use. If anyone knows of a free photo hosting site that can support the images in a large format I think the Cointest will be more fun.

I sent mine answer as well, but upon further inspection I may have jumped the gun with my answer.... guess I'll need to wait 24 hrs before I answer again :angry:

Can you post one in the forums as a link, so I can see how it works? I tried to likk to my Photobucked images, but it won't work anymore. Something about the changes there have stopped it working.

Email sent. This is such a cool game. I just went through all the previous practice pics of the last 5-pages. Got them all except the one in the flower garden (even after it was circled :angry: ). Thank you WSR for all the fun already. Can't wait to see the next pic.

This must be a pretty good photography lesson for you to come up with the different pics. well done. I think the practice rounds really helped sort things out.

Just a clarifying question... by "Winner," do you mean: a) the person who actually wins the coin, b.) the person who was first to correctly find the coin, or c) anyone who correctly found the coin?

 

I assume that it's option A, but I wanted to check to be sure! :angry:

WOW, I'm getting some very interesting answers...Does that make you wonder??? I'm also seeing many answers from players who never got in on the practice!!

 

OK, now I am wondering and think I will be guessing again in 24 hours.

I mean the one who actually is chosen in the drawing to win the actual coin. Everyone may still submit answers, and be entered in the drawing if they are right(and in time) but if you just won a Coin, be prepared to select another person to receive the prize if you win twice in a row.

If you are in the top twenty...AND you win the drawing...AND you named the coin in your answer...I MIGHT include something extra.

I have a little question on the rules. I assume that I must wait 24 hours before I can answer again. Or do you mean that as soon as it turns to 6-23-08 I can answer again ie one guess per calender day versus 24 hours between guesses?

Forgot to also ask. You said before that you got so many answers so quickly that it may make a differnt if someone stops to circle the answer and then attach a link to that. If we send in the link in a second email does that count or how would you want that to be handled?

I'm laughing because I was going to say the same thing when I saw your post. I counted at least two coins, but also have a couple of "iffies". I went with my first find. I'm not sure of the name of the coin, but I think I recognize it. I'm curious as to how many others have found more than one coin.

I thought that question would come. If you submit a second answer, it must be timestamped 24 hours(or more) after your first answer. This should give players in all timezones a chance to play before anyone comes back for seconds.

If you chose to send a written answer and then back it up with a picture later, that's fine, the written answer will be accepted with the image used as verification. If they are different, the first one will be counted as your submission(whether it's correct or not)
