GIMME THAT GOLD! …. I mean, What’s the Challenge?
At 2pm EST / 1pm CST/ Noon MST/ 11am PST on Saturday, March 2, we will update this post to include cropped pictures of various items found in locations scattered throughout the challenge. (For those of you concerned, you will not need to have finished Azteca to complete this challenge. You will however need to be able to get to the world.) Your job is to find out exactly where these pictures were taken and take a full screen version screenshot of the same item.
You must then upload these full screen picture answers to either a Wizard101 Central album or to imagehostingcentral. Please ensure that your wizard’s name is showing in all pictures. We want to ensure that no one steals a picture that is actually someone else’s work. (If we have any doubts about this, we may ask to verify the identity of the wizard in the pictures.) Once you have taken full screen pictures of the items in question, please send all of these full screen pictures to Katherine_Light in a private message on Wizard101 Central. Her userpage is located here. You must be a member of Wizard101 Central in order to upload pictures and send a private message. You can send an image in a private message by placing img tags around the image’s url. To do this, left click on the image on click “Copy url”. In your private message, paste this url between the tags [img] [/img] The final line would looks something like this, minus the asterisks.
Please submit all of your photos in one entry! If you fear you’ve made a mistake, you can always submit a new entry. We will update this post as the prizes are given out so that you know what is still available.
Be aware, this contest is a marathon, not a sprint! We are not expecting anyone to have an entry ready to go within an hour or two. There are a lot of prizes, so don’t feel rushed, and don’t freak out if one or two people seem to be powering through it super fast; this should take you a while, so make sure you’re having FUN doing it!
What Do I Need to Find?
You will be looking for THESE items. Please search them out in the Spiral, take fullscreen pictures of them in their locations, and private messages ALL of these pictures (in one message) to Katherine_Light as outlined in the above sections. Remember, this is a LONG contest, so take your time, don’t stress out, and enjoy. We will be releasing clues as to the location of each clue at 5pm EST, to help you with any that may not make sense to you. Good luck and have fun!
