Alright, guys. For the premiere of this event, I am allowing for ten (10) winners. The next one and onwards will allow for five (5) winners only.

Happy hunting!

So, will the jigsaw pieces be images in posts? I assume this is so.

R 07-04-2013 11:19 PM

Yes. Pieces were specially made for the event. They are shaped like puzzle pieces, so you'll know you've found one when you see it.

Jon 07-04-2013 11:37 PM

Alright, sounds good. I'll start looking for them tomorrow, thank you for the reply. :)

R 07-05-2013 02:11 AM

I decided to give you guys a look at the other tiers for the event awards. You can take a look at them in the OP.

R 07-06-2013 04:20 PM

It's time for some clues!

Clues
#1 It's heavy
#2 Fairy
#3 A type of fish

I also added them to the OP.

Jon 07-06-2013 09:25 PM

Thank you for the clues, it should really help! Another question, if you don't mind: can the puzzle pieces be posts from way back when (months old), or are they mostly located posts made recently (within a few weeks to a month)?

I'm pretty sure you can't answer that, but I just thought that I'd give it a try. xP

R 07-06-2013 09:36 PM

I will say that none of the posts are two months or older. This is all I can say to avoid making it too easy.

Jon 07-06-2013 09:47 PM

Hah, thank goodness. I've been looking at some really old posts. Thank you for the tip.

Draft 07-07-2013 04:16 PM

Found all! Good luck everyone!

Jon 07-08-2013 06:18 PM

Grats Draft, I'm pretty ashamed to say I haven't found any at all yet, and I'm pretty much skimmed through everything. xD

Are the puzzle pieces in scripts/popups? I think something may be wrong with my browser. D:

Draft 07-08-2013 06:26 PM

Nope, just plain-looking puzzle pieces hidden and scattered around the 6 locations Rom posted.

I can't give any hints, sorry.

Jon 07-08-2013 06:29 PM

Yeah, I know you can't, haha. I just thought that it might have been in a script or something (and my browser was acting wonky) because I've been looking for them like crazy. Darn my bad eyesight. xD

R 07-08-2013 07:12 PM

If you're just skimming through things, then I can tell you now that you won't ever find them.

Jon 07-08-2013 07:59 PM

Yeah, been through 4 of the 6 forums and looked at all threads that at least had posts made in January of 2013 or newer, and didn't find any. Gave up. xP

R 07-08-2013 08:31 PM

Here's another tip: It is impossible to find them if you do not click. They are not out in the open.

This will be my last tip, but I will do something else on July 10th to help you and everyone else out.

Jon 07-08-2013 10:28 PM

Yeah, I didn't check anything like
Spoiler!
because my net is a little slow and sometimes images take a long time to load (especially if there's .gifs or YT videos) and/or freezes the thread.

So I guess that's where I went wrong. xD

Tardar 07-08-2013 10:50 PM

I've found probably the easiest one. And now I'm taking a break. I'm having fun though, so that's good. :D

Esper 07-08-2013 11:28 PM

I found one in like 5 minutes. Then the other two were like FML.
