    i can't see why anyone would bother entering when there is no indication of what sort of puzzle it is whatsoever.

    Just seen this site and it's been relaunched as a free to play site for 2009...still gotta a minumum 10k prize!

    Joined the other day and its pretty cool...just trawling around for clues and other users for ideas on the clues.

    If you join let me know - could swap some ideas on the clues or something maybe? The answer's gotta be a person/ place/ event or something like that...and seven characters long....

    The instructions seem pretty clear now and the contest looks interesting. It's a little like Cash Hunt. Just signed up but won't be able to take a good look until this evening. The only discouraging thing is you may get some ad email, as this is how they partially fund the hunt, but I have a seperate email for these sort of things so hopefully it won't be too much of a bother. Will keep you updated as I get more involved.

    Well I've been looking at the various clues and I have don't have the slightest idea. No one seems to be discussing on the forum there. Wilson (and anyone else who joins in), I'm willing to discuss here.

    I believe the Ebay clue is a listing for a magazine ad of Jerry Lewis's movie "Who's Minding The Store?". I thought perhaps there was a connection of the company that deals with both the Indiana Jones store and the 49er's store, but I can't seem to see one. The picture on the blog hint I believe is also Indiana Jones. The numbers behind the David Beckham link are 2 & 5. Section 2 & 5 on the site are 2: Football/Soccer & 5: TV. Don't know if that is what the numbers meant.

    I'm not sure when the vault went active, so I don't know how much longer we have to enter guesses.

    Any ideas?

    Could use a few people willing to discuss to join me in this hunt. I don't know what it was like when it first opened, but it seems well organized now. The moderators have said that they are willing to split the prize if more then one player collaborated. It just requires honesty and trust on the players parts that they will admit this. The clues seem quite obscure and vague, so it seems like some idea sharing is a good way to go. Hope to discuss!!

    I show the vault not going active til Sunday.

    Dont forget, Eddie Murphy did Nutty Professor as well.

    Either way, really hard to find a specific ebay ad.

    Jerry Lewis did "It's A Mad Mad Mad Mad World" right after Nutty Professor but he was uncredited, so the next staring movie is "Who's Minding The Store?". If you go to the ebay list for this, at the very bottom there is only three entries for international sellers like they state (all from England by the way.) The odd one out is the magazine ad. Also, the hint for the David Beckham site has a 2 & 5 next to it. The 2nd and 5th letters of his name are..."ad"!!! I'm thinking advertisements in the store sections of the other two sites but can't find any links. Will keep looking though. Glad to have you aboard!

    The vault is active again. In the news section, they posted yesterday that there will be a new clue released within the next couple of days.
