A Contest Update Thread

Recommended Posts

This is going to be a contest update and hint thread that will cover all the contests that I currently have running and it will provide some hints where possible. I may upgrade or replace hints so watch here for updated hints. This thread will also cover the status of each contest. This will be a single place to get updates and I will keep this open until I have given away all the geocoins I have set aside for contests.

does this mean you're accepting more entries in the "what contest?" contest yet? I only sent one...can I send two more?

Every entry in the "what contest?" could be a winner so I am accepting three entries each cycle and then each entrant receives an email informing them of the status of their guess and asking them to wait until the cycle repeats and further entries are accepted.

One more entry will complete the cycle and then three more entries will be accepted. So unfortunately pauljsurfer1 you will have to wait until another entry is received before the cycle re-opens and you are eligible to enter again.

You had a good guess though, and the clue will help!

There is more than one prize in the "what contest?" but only one FTF prize.
