The Scavenger hunt is ON

What is this? There always seem to be features of this site that people just don’t seem to know about and this scavenger hunt has been setup to help familiarize the members with some of the lesser-known items about Aquarium Advice. We will be giving out prizes for First, Second and third place. The first place prize is a 2006 Aquarium Advice wall calendar. The winner will have their choice between a freshwater calendar or a saltwater calendar. More on the calendars coming in the next few days. Second and third place will win a copy of the book The Ocean at Home: An Illustrated History of the Aquarium By Bernd Brunner. Participants should PM either myself or reefrunner69 with the responses to the scavenger hunt items below. The responses MUST be in the following format. Submissions that do not follow this format will be tossed out.

Code:
Q: Question for first Item
A: Answer for first item

Q: Question for second Item
A: Answer for second item

...
The responses will be date/time stamped when they are submitted and the first to submit a response that has all the items answered correctly will be our first place winner. The second and third to respond will be our second and third place winners. Everyone should tripple check their answers before submitting. We will only accept one response per member and we will only be contacting the first three whom respond with all the questions answered correctly.

We will not permit in any way members posting in the forums hints about the scavenger hunt questions. Anyone posting hints will be disqualified from the contest.

Actually, the scavenger hunt was a great idea. I have had a lot of fun looking for all the items. Some are real simple, some are a little vague, and some you know you have seen the answer before but can't remember where now.

Good job guys.

Yes they will be posted once we have all three winners OR the end of the week which ever comes first. I had no idea this was going to be this difficult.

On behalf of my employer, he would like to thank AA for giving me something to do for 3 hours this morning instead of the work that was assigned to me. What started out as fun, has ended in great frustration.

There were two questions that I thought could go either way.

Q. Where do you go if you want information on aquarium heaters?
Q: Which styles use graphics as navigation links?

Are the people with the most correct answers going to win since it appears nobody is going to get them all correct? Just curious. This was a great way to advertise the new calendar and get us to buy one. I'll be ordering one soon.

A first place winner has been notified. The winning submission was sent in at 01 Nov 2005 09:32 pm. I didnt want to announce this as it would probably keep people from submitting for the second and third place prizes.
