    Morning peeps :wave:

    O.k. so it looks like I wasn't quite as easy on y'all as I first thought.

    D'oh! :doh:

    So to help clarify things a little, I would like to say that clue#3 is extremely literal. It is what it is. Really.

    And secondly, I think this line from my original post is particularly relevant . . .
    (Ewwww! Quoting myself felt soooo wrong! :puke:)

    I know it's no picnic but hang in there folks! ;)

    And if something eludes you, give it a break and you may find that you'll spot it later on in the contest while searching for other clues.

    Thank you again for all of your participation, & I truly hope I don't frustrate any of you too much! :bang:


    Peace to all of you good folk out there!

    Hee hee all is well thank you very much!

    And the contest is certainly not over - don't worry, I will make it completey clear when we are coming to the end of our journey - so hang on in there, we are approaching the next station!

    I say 'all is well', and it is really, BUT, I have been overworked & overly stressed in so many areas of my life recently, I have had little time for anything else . . . but I will get things back on track soon. I think I just need to shrink some heads first . . .
    [​IMG]

    And yes @Grim Chiclets, you have indeed 'got this' :)


    Now, don't even think about touching that dial!

    Well hunters, are you ready?! :brow:


    :sherlock: Clue for mystery item#6
    Not dissimilar to the ringleader in the awesome movie 'Gremlins', it's kind are likewise unseemingly vicious, and have even been known to terrorize the locals!


    Since the last clue was so damn easy, I thought y'all needed something a little more meaty this time! :p

    Let's see how you do.

    Good luck all.

    Zion awaits you.


    :)

    Having trouble?! :ko:

    How about an extra hint? :sherlock:

    O.k. so, what could look a little bit like this . . .
    [​IMG]

    And be capable of this . . .
    'Back in 2003, a rougue <insert mystery object here> attacked five people during a 48-hour rampage . . . . . . . one man required two skin graft operations, and other victims included a man who was attacked as he walked home from the pub.'

    [​IMG]

    Ooooooooh the plot thickens!

    Happy hunting!

    :wave:

    O.k, so it looks like this particular round of the hunt is causing some seeeeerious headaches! :bang:

    But, well done to the few of you out there who are ahead of the pack, having already deciphered my clue as well as found the item that I require! :tup:

    - And to those same few, I hope you don't mind, but I think I need to help out some of our other fellow hunters with this one just a little bit more . . .


    So, to everyone else . . . . here are some further clues that juuuust might help to point you in the right direction:

    Bless you @Reflections! Thank you. I had a lovely time, as I hope you did too. And I also wish you the very best for 2016 . . . and that goes for everyone else here too!
    [​IMG]

    O.k, I am aware that this contest has been going on for juuuuuuust a little bit longer than I had originally intended, but, you know how 'life' can be right? :rolleyes:

    So, once again, my apologies for being so slack in this regard.

    But we are here now, all bright eyed & bushy tailed, ready for action! Right?!

    :zzz:

    Oh you guys make me so proud! :rockon:

    And you may all be relieved to hear that we don't actually have toooooo many more rounds of the contest left to go, so make the most of what's to come! :)

    O.k. then, heeeeeeere we go again! :brow:

    :sherlock: Clue for mystery item#7
    Illumination for the pixie folk.

    And yes, that really is it! It's pretty darn easy I know, but it's just locating the little buggers . . .

    What do you guys reckon? :worms:


    Ahhhh, it's so good to be back! :whip:


    Happy New Year & Happy Hunting you lovely lot!

    Have fun!

    :leaf: :buzz::bigleaf::buzz: :leaf:

    O.k, so who's having trouble? C'mon! Speak up!
    :D

    If you are struggling with ANY of the clues so far, then please post up questions right here in the thread, & I will do my very best to help you out - without handing the answers to you on a silver platter of course!
    [​IMG]

    Unfortunately, I checked my inbox this morning to find that I have once again received a P.M. telling me that they think the contest is way too difficult.
    I know it's a challange, but moaning at me about it will not make it easier.

    I find it extremely disheartening that a tiny minority feels the need to complain, and in fact, it makes me wonder why I even bother!

    So, if you do find that the contest is too difficult, then please feel free to not take part. This hunt is for F.C.ers of a certain calibre, of which it appears there are many :sherlock:

    However, I understand that it cannot be for everyone - so please, bow out gracefully if this is the case.

    I would also just like to point out that I have put this contest together in my own time, & I am not on RBT's payroll.

    And finally, a BIG BIG THANK YOU goes out to all the awesome & thoughtful members who have contacted me to tell me just how much they have been enjoying & appreciate the contest, and the time that I have put into it.

    It really means a great deal to me to hear such positive feedback, and as I am a total softy, I am truly touched by all of your kind words.

    And I am reminded that YOU are all why I do bother :love:


    Sorry about all of that, now, back to the hunt . . . .


    PËÅÇÊÑLÕVË!

    Clue #6
    I've spent probably 4 hours just on #6 looking repeatedly at your pictures, read several articles on Gremlins as I've never seen that movie, looked thru your pictures with a magnifying glass, and come down to it's probably a badger, but nothing in any picture I find matches.

    1. is it just a picture you took, not a cartoon, not a you-tube?
    2. any way to search for ONLY your posts that have a picture as I repeatedly look thru post after post that don't even have a picture? 200 posts over and over and over, most with no pics.
    3. live badger, dead badger, carved badger, on a label, reflection of a badger, cloud shaped like a badger, any more clues?
    4. any way to go directly to a post based on post # as I've even cataloged posts but no way to access then directly. For example: post #2247 has giants, symphony, camping, drinks, field session but I know of no way to go directly to it to view the pics again?


    FYI, giving an opinion that the contest is too hard is not "moaning", it's intended as feedback I thought you'd want--just like if someone felt it was too easy :)

    Hey man, good efforts! :tup:

    I appreciate the time you have spent searching & deciphering my clues, and I am sorry that you have found it difficult.

    Let's see what we can do . . . .

    O.k. then, #6 - it sounds like you are on precisely the right track there, and it may be a little blurry & in the background, but he is there!

    Have another look at the additional picture clues I posted to help lead you to it's exact location . . . :sherlock:
    [​IMG]
    :sherlock:[​IMG]:sherlock:

    And now on to number.7.
    I'm afraid that I must confess that I am now not entirely sure that everyone will be familiar with this particular term. So my apologies if this is the case!

    However, if you think of a word for a type of pixie folk whom may lurk at the bottom of your garden . . . and also a word that could describe 'illumination' . . . .

    . . . You just may be able to figure it out!

    Also, the item you seek is actually located in a photo that has already been used for one of the previous answers :sherlock:

    How's that?

    I hope it helps!

    But if not, as always, LET ME KNOW! :)

    As for your other questions - the items you are searching for are ONLY in photos that I have taken myself. Not in videos or cartoon pictures.
    And I'm afraid that I am not sure how to search for just my picture posts, or how to go directly to a post using the post #. I don't think it's possible. Sorry bud.

    And dude, with regards to your feedback - it has been noted. And imo, negative feedback IS moaning when the same opinion is expressed more than once :2c:


    Anyway, good luck & dare I say, happy hunting? :brow:

    ;)

    PeaceEverytime!

    HUNTERS ! ! !
    [​IMG]

    I feel that I should add an extra clue for the current search, as it seems that I have used a regional term for the item in question, which I have discovered is not globally recognised.

    :doh:

    Please accept my apologies. I was not aware of this fact at the time of posting, but rest assured, I shall do my best to help you out a little bit more on this one.

    Btw, WELL DONE to those who have already figured it out, & found the item regardless of my mistake. And I sincerely hope that you do not mind me me offering up this extra clue for those still struggling . . .

    I shall advise Mrs.VnV that I require several lashings this evening as a punishment for my blunder! :whip:

    But now, onto the clue:

    Illumination for the pixie folk . . .
