TheSite's 16th birthday treasure

**helen****helen** Mod malarkistPosts: 9,235 Listening Ear
Hello :wave:

Lots of you are probably aware that TheSite has just turned 16 - you may have spotted Jo7's message to her 16 year-old self on YouTube, celebrated in live chat or even sent us a message via Twitter. :heart: Keep your thoughts and messages coming - it's great to hear how you feel about TheSite now that it's coming of age.

To mark the occasion right here in the community, I had a natter with the TS Leaders last night and they came up with this:

TheSite photo hunt for your chance to win a goodie bag and the VERY last YN Octi :hyper:

So, what do I need to do?

Over the next 24 hours myself, other mods and even Octi himself will be posting photos randomly in threads around the boards. There are 9 in total and your task is to find all 9, tell us what the photos are (the clue is in the letter in each corner of the images) and then when you have them all, tell us which 2 words are made using the first letter of each word. The words are split _ _ _ _ & _ _ _ _ _

How do I enter?

To enter - send us a list of the individual nine words and the two words that are created using the first letters of each word. Send these to me or Jo7 via PM or email me [email protected]

Everyone who enters correctly will win a prize and then an overall winner's name will be drawn from a hat to win the coveted last Octi.

So, to kick this off - here is the first image. Look out for other images with letters and Octi in the corner.

Make sense?

The hunt starts now and you have until 1st November to submit your entries.


P.S while it's fine to confer with friends, answers should NOT be posted publicly in the forums.

    Is every image one word or are some of them two? :)

    Most of them are one word, but I can think of at least one image that is more. :)

    Hi Claire,
    Why don't you see if you can do the first part which is to find the nine pictures? Once you've got to that point, you can always drop another member a PM and confer on what you think the images represent? You might find it quite fun finding all the pics..:D

    You can PM me if you like :)

    Thanks Helen and BRE

    I'm a bit confused - why do we need to know what the pictures represent?

    Surely we just re-arrange the letters to find the 2 words? Or am I missing something?

    Yes but its a bit of fun :)

    Sure YSH but it would be interesting to see what you think the words are that we had in mind, if they don't exactly match our ideas the entry will still be valid and probably your words will be more interesting!...we can share the mix of words with everyone at the end.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Helen can you give us a clue! What letters do the two words start with? Pleaaaaaase :D

    Ahh sorry, I thought I was just misunderstanding how it all worked.

    No fair *strops for the rest of time*

    The contest was rigged! I can see that someone's guiding Octi's tentacle. :p
    Not that I wanted him anyway, I've got one.
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Hey thanks guys!

    I was wondering - Helen could you redo the raffle without my name in? I have a trio of lovely octis and I think that's enough Octi children for me. Maybe someone else would be able to provide the last one with a better home? Sorry to be awkward - I should have said at the start!
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Ahhh sorry I sound really ungrateful. Just think it would be fairer if someone else got an opportunity to give an Octi some loving ;)

    I'd have said the same.

    No you don't sound ungrateful, happy to do it again... :)

    Isn't Octi the wrong person to choose anyway? I mean Octi does have 8 arms, and there can only be one winner? :D
