Title: 2017 Christmas Contest! WINNERS ANNOUNCED!! SEE FIRST POST!!
Post by: Jeff on December 04, 2017, 06:23:02 PM
WINNER ANNOUNCEMENT VIDEO  CONGRATS EVERYONE AND MERRY CHRISTMAS!!
https://youtu.be/pz3uaynuOI8

It is that time of year again where Forestry Forum member's want to pull out Santa Jeff's beard! This year our contest is way different than any from the past, yet, still, a bit diabolical ;D

I've spent a lot of time this past couple months beating off hackers and scammers and spammers from trying to access the forum and it's server. So I got to thinking, why should they have all the fun?  It's time for our Forum members to try and hack their way into the Forestry Forum Christmas Contest. So without further adieu, welcome to the

HACK THE FORESTRY FORUM CHRISTMAS CONTEST CONTEST! 8) 8)
First I would like to thank the Co-Sponsors for this years Prizes!

Logrite Tool (http://www.Logrite.com)s and Council Tools (http://www.counciltool.com)

I'll list the prizes later on in this post, but I wanted to get the contest started because frankly,  some of you may need the time. ;)

Here is what you have to do.   I am going to give you a video clue and a link. The link will be username password protected.  The passwords through this whole contest are all the same, and that password is Christmas2017  It is the username you must figure out by using the video as a clue. The usernames are all farely well known Forestry Forum member usernames. As I said, use the video to figure out who that member might be. It might be obvious to some, it may be tough for others. T H I N K. I also encourage you to help each other behind the scenes.

There are 13 levels. Each Level has the same password, Christmas2017, but a new username and video clue.  Once you get to the final level, you will find the entry form to fill out and get entered. Winners will be chosen at random from the successful entries.

Tips:
1. The username must be exactly as the members name appears here on the forum with two exceptions. Two of the usernames are two word names. For those, you must insert an underscore between the names. Like this>>>  John_Smith There is a third two word username, but he already has an underscore in it.

2. I would take notes to record your progress, so you can get back to where you left off if you happen to taka break mid-stream.

3.You have until midnight Christmas Eve to get registered. Don't procrastinate! We have some great prizes! Winners will be drawn sometime on Christmas Day

4.As you proceed, you will notice the page address will give you a secret Christmas message.

5. You need to be a registered member to complete the entry form.

Okay, here is your first video Clue and the Link where you need to try to login to.  Good Luck and God Speed and

MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!

Title: Re: 2017 Christmas Contest!
Post by: Hilltop366 on December 05, 2017, 09:29:33 AM
So I may be having technical difficulties. Whats suppose to happen if I enter the wrong user name?

What I am getting when I enter the name an password is the screen flashes and the password dots disappear then the progress bar goes 1/10 of the way across and stops, if I press cancel I get "error 401".

ps that hint is too easy, make them suffer a bit longer there is 19 more days. :D
Coming from the guy that can't get past the first clue. :D
Title: Re: 2017 Christmas Contest!
Post by: Jeff on December 05, 2017, 10:01:59 AM
Wrong answer is entirely based on what browser you are using.  A correct answer takes you to an obvious web page, Wrong could be the prompt flashes for you try again, or closing the prompt without success would probably result in an Error 401!  page. I could customize that I suppose to let you know you didn't make, but, it should be obvious if you get that, you didn't make it!

Title: Re: 2017 Christmas Contest!
Post by: Hilltop366 on December 05, 2017, 10:21:01 AM
Ok, I am using Safari Version 10.1.2 (10603.3.8), I let it sit and the safari froze up and then force quit after a bit, tried again and went to error 401 page after a while, it does not compete loading the page just sits at 1/10 progress so I was not sure if the problem was computer/internet or me. I can pm you the answer I was trying see if that is the problem.
Title: Re: 2017 Christmas Contest!
Post by: Jeff on December 05, 2017, 11:00:48 AM
Sure, I can give you a yes or no. :)   Me no do Safari. ;)   I'm thinking if it just sits there, it aint right, but I can't help with the apple.  Maybe use firefox or chrome for apple.

Going good on chrome up to #10, You see I thought #8 was #1 but then I figured it out. Enjoy your burger and yes I got the hint.

If anyone is using a Mac computer and you have a problem....refresh the page or get off forestry Forum and then come back on. You NO NOT have to log out of the FF.....just close it.
This helped me.

"It's time for the "Big One" and I feel the pain" he said clutching his chest.  Geeze I am stuck and after my "call a friend" has been used up, I am throwing myself on the collective wisdom of the entire forum.   I am old enough to remember Sanford and Son but it is in the dusty areas of my brain, you know, the little used part that contains things like wisdom, common sense, and listening to my wife.  The only memory of the program I have is when a fella drove in looking for a hubcap and the son took one off the other side of the car and sold it to him.

I look forward to the Christmas Contest every year :)  Thanks for the help behind the scenes - saved myself 3 bucks  ;) Might have to go get some candy canes  ;D  :christmas:

It won't take mine neither. Maybe my phone can't do it. It did step one,then I came back to do step two & no go. Kept saying error. Now I can't even get through one. But I'm still hunting for the back door.

Then you are using the wrong username. Using a phone, they have a habit of changing what you enter.
Glad to see someone figured out the backdoor.

The back door has been found. A member had to help me out. But I enjoyed the contest more.
Tha backdoor clue was a good one. But something needed to be added to make the back door open. Now I will always remember Christmas and backdoor in a whole diffeant way. I used up all my allowed searches for the year. I had to send $300 to POSTON to get more.  ;D

I still have to find the back door.  I got on a roll using the front entrance and I was enjoying the trip.  Maybe tomorrow I will look for the back door, seeing as how it's pretty been much spelled out by now.

The only question I have is:

How could anybody HATE GRITS?

Merry Christmas everybody!

While playing the You Tube Jeff created for revealing the winners I kept clicking on the screen trying to get the wheel to spin!! :D  Of course this caused the You Tube to stop so it would not play.... finally I clued in.  ;D

Thank you Jeff for creating and executing a wonderful game!  It was great fun right to the end!

Council Tools and Logrite, thank you for such wonderful prizes/gifts!  All were great gifts and everyone would be happy to have any of them.  I must admit I am contemplating purchasing some.

Winner,winner chicken dinner. ;D  Council Tool Park Axe!!!!!!     :o
I have read and understood the rules to the 2017 Christmas Contest and it stated that no substitutions was allowed or permitted. So no grits.
Magicman is busy sawing so he won't have time to do any cooking in Chesterville,ME.   ;D
It was a lot of fun solving and helping out other members.
I am looking forward to next years contest. But really looking forward to what is coming to my house.
All packages will be scanned at the Kittery Border. If needed said package can be opened and inspected.

All you other winners will need to take a picture of yourself with the prize that you won. That was in the rules too.  ;D

Thanks from Kiwiland too

I have loved participating and following this thread.  I am a bit  :( that it has to come to an end so quickly but can't wait for the next 350 odd days to pass to start again  :snowball:

A huge congrats to all the winners and grinners :D I think we are all winning just being on this forum alone. 

Again THANKS  :-* to all those who made this competition what it was :)

Congrats to all the winners! 

Thanks to Jeff for putting it all together.

The prizes went out today via FedEx so Runmca you should have yours tomorrow.  Sprucebunny on Saturday as the two of you live nearby.  Yellowhammer you could have yours on Saturday as well but I would guess more like Tues.

My bench legs showed up last week, and they look great.  So I put them in the showroom, leaned them against the wall. and we had our first open business day since the Christmas holidays.  Despite the freezing cold, we had a good turnout with well over a hundred people showing up to buy and browse our wood.

(http://www.forestryforum.com/gallery/albums/userpics/21488/IMG_1062.JPG?easyrotate_cache=1515296372)


(http://www.forestryforum.com/gallery/albums/userpics/21488/fullsizeoutput_12c.jpeg?easyrotate_cache=1515288929)

The legs were a big hit, and throughout the day, we and our customers mocked the legs up on several of the slabs.  I got so tired of telling people the Logrite/Rite Leg company name and website address that I went and dug their cardboard shipping box of the trash and leaned it against the wall so people could just take a photo of the address and contact info.   

Here's what the legs look like mocked up on some flame, woven bark, box elder:
(http://www.forestryforum.com/gallery/albums/userpics/21488/IMG_1046.JPG?easyrotate_cache=1515295841)

This is what they look like on the Osage:
(http://www.forestryforum.com/gallery/albums/userpics/21488/IMG_4572.jpg?easyrotate_cache=1515120293)

On the Walnut:
(http://www.forestryforum.com/gallery/albums/userpics/21488/IMG_4568.jpg?easyrotate_cache=1515120244)

On the Kentucky Coffee:
(http://www.forestryforum.com/gallery/albums/userpics/21488/IMG_1048.JPG?easyrotate_cache=1515295851)

On the Palownia:
(http://www.forestryforum.com/gallery/albums/userpics/21488/IMG_1049.JPG?easyrotate_cache=1515295847)

And on the Curly Cherry:
(http://www.forestryforum.com/gallery/albums/userpics/21488/IMG_1042.JPG?easyrotate_cache=1515295831)

So now I need to find the time to actually mount the legs to a slab and make the bench, which I will leave in the showroom for people to sit on and rest their legs.  Our customers know I will only endorse products that I have personally become familiar with, and which stand the test of time for quality and ruggedness.  When I told customers that these were made by the same company who also builds my professional and high quality cant hooks, they paid attention.  I had mentioned to Tammy at Logrite that I had been meaning to buy some of these to try out, but just never got around to it.  So now that I have them, maybe it will work out for everyone.  I get some free legs, and Tammy may get a few extra sales. 

I'll post how the bench turns out when I get it built. 

Anyway, thanks for the fun Christmas contest, and thanks to Tammy and Jeff for making this happen.

Robert

I should have bought a lottery ticket that day, I rarely win any prize draw. :D

MM stop by and pick up your hatchet anytime.

Yep, I did double check with Rooster before I mentioned it just in case someone was missing theirs.

Thanks again to Logrite and Blue Creeper  8)

No picture of me but Ted (the J5) is just like me.... you can put all the paint you want on and we will both still not look very good or new. We are both over 60, after all  :)
