    Sitepoint Easter Egg Hunt 2011 - The Eggs have been Laid!

    Hello everyone!

    The eggs have been laid!


    HOW IT WORKS

    From today, Sunday 17th April, to Easter Sunday, Sunday 24th April, an undisclosed number of easter eggs were hidden in posts of prominent threads across Sitepoint Forums.

    The eggs each have a character on them, like this one;



    You'll have to search the forums, and bookmark the URLs where you see them.

    When you find them all (will give you clues to how many), unscramble the eggs to solve the secret phrase, then PM us the list of URLs along with the solved phrase to ScallioXTX with the subject "Easter Egg Hunt 2011".

    This will be a race, and the first five persons to submit the completed, unscrambled phrase with links to all the hiding places will get a some sweet Easter prizes, including classic Sitepoint T-shirts *



    (No chocolate unfortunately; The limitations of mailing foodstuffs around the world prevented us from doing that one for you )

    The prizes

    First prize
    A print book of choice, a t-shirt, and an I HTML cup

    Second prize
    An e-book of choice, a t-shirt, and an I HTML cup

    Third prize
    An e-book of choice and a t-shirt

    Fourth and fifth prizes
    A t-shirt

    Stay tuned to this thread for clues throughout the day.

    And... Happy hunting!



    * We don't have these classic t-shirts in all sizes anymore, so if you win and we don't have one in your size anymore you will get one of the new t-shirts, which are of course also totally awesome!

    (That's my personal favourite clue.)

    I'm now a little confused, I thought the eggs were only supposed to be hidden in "posts of prominent threads"

    I only had two more eggs to find...... but now I'm thinking that I could spend the rest of the week and still not find them if I'm looking in the wrong places!

    I know some of them are closer than what you would think, Shaun didn't say exclusively but I am not running this hunt so don't know where they were all laid.

    We did throw in a pair curve balls for you, that I'm guessing you just found!

    All the rest are in threads though. Keep looking. And remember they aren't all on the first pages of the threads!

    Easy clue: "Share with others? Or maybe completely dedicated? What's right for me?"

    Clue: Does this old CRT make me look fat? How wide is too wide? To scroll, or not to scroll, that is the question. Page 2.

    clue: Put your _________ on the dotted line. But you have to wait 90 days...

    The eggs are hidden in the stickied threads, except for two tricky ones. Use the clues to help find those.

    And no, that F is not the word you're thinking of!
