Default Re: SPPS 4th Year Anniversary Contest Week #4


This weeks contest are for those geeky research nuts that seek free stuff, lots of free stuff. You may even consider it a website scavenger hunt so to speak. Similar to last week, you're just going to have to do a little thinking to earn this one. Listed just below this paragraph are the websites you will find the answers on:

All of the above websites are pledged sponsors of these SPPS contests.

1) Below are outlined 35 specific questions pertaining to these 4 specific websites.
2) Answering all 35 questions are not required if you don't know all of them. I'm not too sure that anyone will actually find all 35 so everyone has a chance at this. Even if you don't know the answers of some, by at least submitting a guess you still have a 50/50 chance of getting it right.
3) You may use any means possible finding out the answers to these questions.
4) You may even discuss the questions in this thread if you feel inclined. Only thing we ask is that you keep your posts on topic.
5) The greater portion of these questions can be found on these websites. There are very few that may possibly not be found on the websites listed.
6) Please do not contact me by private messages with questions or comments concerning the contest as I will not answer them. If you have any further questions or comments specifically pertaining to this SPPS contests, please post them in this contest thread. I will try to keep up on them best as I can. Please don't expect any clues. That would be unfair to others that may already have that answer.
7) The winner of this contest will be chosen by the number of correct answers submitted. You will gain 1 point per correct answer. If there is for any reason a tie, a tie breaker will be held for a final winner decision.
8) Once you have all the answers ready, please submit them through e-mail to, This will keep your answers confidential, out of public view. BE SURE TO SEND YOUR FORUMS NICKNAME AND WHICH FORUMS YOU ARE FROM SOMEWHERE IN THE E-MAIL!

We will not be responsible for lost or misdirected e-mails so be sure to get the address above correct with the correct title. Nor will we be responsible for the correct answer corresponding with the correct number. We suggest that you look them over very carefully before sending them, then save your answers somewhere just in case you need to resend them. Any e-mails with attachments, large content or improperly titled will automatically be discarded. A short note and answers only please. Unless there is a problem with transit of the e-mail, only 1 answer form will be accepted per member. May even be a good idea to post that you sent the e-mail in this thread so we know to look for it at Yahoo.
9) You have more than a week to submit your answers for this one so take your time. They must be received before the deadline listed below so don't wait till the very last minute either. The time posted on the e-mail must be before 11:59PM EST. That's eastern standard time.
