Lost and Found on Park!

Salutations!

A new event will be starting on Park this Saturday, July 22 at noon, Pirate time – Lost and Found on Park.

At that time, I will be posting a link to a webpage that will show you 15 cropped and zoomed in pictures of things on Park. Your goal; find these items and take a screen shot and email them to me. Simple, no?

This event will run for one week, or for those of you who are a bit daft – Noon, pirate time on July 29th.

And now for the some details. . .

For the screen shots:
• When you are taking a screen shot, please make it a full shot, not cropped unless you are cutting out your chat log.
• Make sure you’re in the screen shot.
• If it is an item out and about on the island, please have your Island tab in view - showing Park Island in the Coral archipelago (Large Island) blah, blah, blah. . .
• If it is in a building/Shoppe, have the Shoppe tab in view.
• Don’t know how to take a screen shot? http://www.computerhope.com/jargon/s/screshot.htm
• Please try to keep the screen shot files small, use a file size reducing program if necessary, or maybe just save it as a JPEG?

For the email:
• Send your entries to Valhalla.ypp@gmail.com
• In the beginning of your entry email I want your main pirate name (please do not use alts) and your home island.
• Put something around the lines of “Poezer’s Lost and Found entry” in the Subject heading of your email or I’ll delete it and your entry will be lost.
• Your email to me should include all 15 screen shots if possible. If not possible, please enter something relevant in the Subject , such as Poezer’s Lost and Found entry – Part 1 of 2

Alright, now you want to know what you can win, right?
• First place: Sloop – Rare Sprat with grey sides and maroon rails.
• Second place: 7.25 k and potted palm with a green pot.
• Third place: 2.5 and a poker table
• Runner up: 1k and Grab Bag Surprise from Tunnel of Loveseats (contains some sort of furniture)
• Next 4 runners up will receive a hemp stack. Yay hemp!


How will this be judged? Time, quite simply. The first 8 submitted entries with all the correct answers win. Place prizes will be given out accordingly as to where in the line up you landed yourself. You all are given fair warning of when this event will start. My email will let me know who sent their entries in first. If something is wrong – it’s out. You only get one entry per event (I’m planning four to span out until September.)

After noon on July 29th, I will post the answers on said linky and it will be up for a week with a list of the winners. Winners must contact me in game by the start of Event #2 (to be announced later) to claim their prizes or forfeit them and the prizes will move on. I will not hunt you down.

I hope to see you all on Saturday, clogging up Park’s docks!
