The new Hunt begins soon!


Listen up! The Treasure will once again be buried.

It's the same challenge. A true test in patience and endurance.
A contest.
It is a daunting task, but it comes with a small reward. Pay attention all in the Nation.
The next National Treasure Hunt will begin on June 8th, 2012.

What is the National Treasure?
Somewhere in this forum of 2,091 topics, containing 18,7314 posts, we here at The Sixth Nation will once again hide a graphic of a treasure chest into one of the messages by randomly selecting and then editing a post by any one of our 747 users.
This will be hidden even more inside a Spoiler tag.

The person who finds the post containing this image and the correct starting date of the contest claims the contents inside.
The date of the currently running Hunt will be in RED text with the image.
Look for this image:
 

IT'S A TRAP!

-I have in previous Hunts gone about the forum, and placed several false spoilers. We may also do this again now as well.
-Beware previous treasures. They should be marked Found and are left behind to get your hopes up long enough to crush them.
-The "Spoiler:" tag title itself may even be edited to read something other than "Spoiler:"
-The post will be edited by any one of the Admin or Mod staff.
So dont be looking at "reason for edit"s thinking the words LAST EDITED BY SIX will help you. It won't.


Rules and Eligibility and Conditions:
-You must have a rank of First Nation to be eligible to claim the prize
(that is a post count minimum of 25 posts)
-Contest is not valid for Sixth Nation Moderators or Administrative positions
-Contest is not valid for any member who has found a treasure in the past 30 days.
-There is no end date. The Hunt remains open until the treasure is found.
-If after 2 weeks the Treasure goes unclaimed I will post a clue here in this topic.
No clues will be given AT ALL during the first 2 weeks of the Hunt.

Okay cool. But what is the Treasure?
This go, there are two:

Registered users holding a Nation Rank of 1st-20th Nation will win a $20 PSN Card
Registered users holding the Loyalist or M.V.P Rank will win a $50 PSN Card
Card is North American currency so be prepared with an Alternate PSN account set to the NA region if you wish to hunt for and use the card.

Once a member has found the National Treasure we will send them the appropriate Card Code to their rank via personal message here on this site. We will also post a congratulatory Comment at the [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] on Face Book. This will also help everyone know that the treasure has been found.
The other card will then be re hidden and the hunt for those users eligible to it's value can start anew.

To Claim the Treasure
Simply quote the post the treasure is in and leave the comment
FOUND
You may also screen cap, and post an image of the message with the spoiler open in this thread here.


Good luck all. In one week the hunt begins!

Okay all you great members of the Sixth Nation

I have a challenge.

It is a daunting task, but it comes with a small reward.
Somewhere in this forum of 994 topics and 57,471 posts I have hidden a graphic of a treasure chest by editing a random post by one of our 245 users.
This is hidden even more, inside a spoiler tag.

The person who finds the post containing this


Spoiler:
 

should do as the treasure box says and quote the post to claim the prize.


Prize:$20 PlayStation Network Gift Card
Rules:
-You must at least have a rank of Second Nation to be able to claim the prize
-Contest is not valid for Sixth Nation Moderators or Administrative positions
-There is no end date. The contest remains open until the treasure is found.
-If a period of 2 weeks passes from today's date with no winner to claim the prize, I will post a clue here in this thread to help you look in the right direction.
-New clues will be given weekly after that


Good Luck all!!!

I winz no? scratch

Laughing

Great idea, Sixy. cheers

Yeah. Its not much I know but hey...its a free add on pack or a couple of the silly psn store games.
I didnt notice anything on the card about it having to be used in the country it was purchased in so region shouldn't matter either btw.
Forgot to mention that.

I should also add the only 2 ways to actually get the card is to
a. Be willing to send me a name and address so I can mail it to you.
or
b.Once someone finds it, I scratch off the back and just pm them the code

I know there will be some reading this who dont know me too well and may have worries in giving me personal info.
I can say you have nothing to worry about. You can hunt down and ask any of the 60 people who Ive mailed t shirts to in the past if their identity was ever stolen. Six aint that kind of guy.

Quote :
Cards can be used in its local PlayStation Store country only. For example, a Japanese PSN Card cannot be used to buy contents in the United States PlayStation Store.

Quote :
PSN cards and tickets are region-specific. For example, if a PS3 is registered in the US, the cards can't be used in the Japanese PSN store. However, users have been able to work their way around this by creating "dummy" accounts.

Thats what I was gonna say if region was a factor.
A fake alt account should do it.
And most everyone already has those.
Especially the ones who are always out for region specific betas.

Thanks for looking into that though Liam

Or will it be in an existing spoiler and not a new one for itself?

Are mine and B's questions answerable, or would they be counted as hints?

Theres a lot of posts to go through.

I am willing to say that it is a single spoiler in a post that didn't contain one at all at the time the original post was made.
