Treasure Hunt (in Contests)

Avast, me hearties the Pirate 3 has hidden some more treasure.

You can pick up the trail by visiting a post created on April 3 2006 6:36 PM EDT.
We're not restricted to a single forum category or month this time so the treasure could be hidden anywhere.

Copy and paste the exact description of the treasure onto this thread when you find it and you'll be the winner.

Good luck!

Ehm, I have searched all the forums and there is no thread created at that exact time...

Yikes, the pirate was a little Drunk methinks when he created this thread.
When he said "thread" he of course meant post. Searching for threads created would be too easy.

Edited out the error to avoid confusion for late comers to the contest. Sorry.

There's no advantage for the admins with forum editing abilities in this contest so it was open to everyone. Everyone that is, except (as usual) my poor wife who never gets to play any of my admin sponsored contests. That's life...

AdminShade May 25 2006 10:11 AM EDT

Thanks!

Indeed, I cannot search the forums in any other way than normal players... :)

When's the next one? =P

AdminG Beee May 30 2006 5:58 AM EDT

I guess you missed the most recent one. Pirate Flag

From now on I'll just hide a message on a forum post and leave it there until it's found. Last one was hidden for a couple of days before I made a post letting folks know to "go search".
Who knows, perhaps there's some secret treasure out there waiting to be found right now, or perhaps not...
