Daily Prophet Contest September 2017




Hello one and all! It is time to go back to Hogwarts! You boarded the Hogwarts Express at 11 am on September First without any problems and you arrived safely at the school. However, during the welcoming speech, the Headmistress dropped a slight bombshell on you all. Instead of being given your class schedules tomorrow morning…all classes have been postponed until the afternoon. This is because you will spend the morning doing a Scavenger Hunt around the castle searching for clues to how your schedules will go. This is essentially, your first assignment and your first test! You see the first years squirm in their seats, but you know the staff would never let you fail, the first years will most likely be able to ask questions, or be given a map. The main puzzle is deciphering the clues to figure out your class order…

You awake the next day bright-eyed and bushy-tailed…ready to knock this Scavenger Hunt out! You report to the Great Hall where you are presented with your first clue...

Six winners will be chosen from all of the 100% correct entries received. The winners shall be chosen via randomization for the wonderful prize of 1000 HPs a piece! This contest ends on October 3rd at 11:59 HEX time! Which means ALL entries need to be owled to Lisa_Meowfoy by 11:59 PM HEX time on October 3rd! Ticket list and winners will be posted in this thread.
Please post any questions you have in this thread as well!

By url of the thread, do you mean the thread clue one is in or the thread it is pointing at (where clue two is)?

@Scarlet_Eye I mean the answer to clue one so where clue two is, since I technically gave away the location to clue one in the contest description. I hope that makes sense!

Just to clarify...
The link we post is the link for the NEXT clue? So in clue 2 would be the link to clue 3?

Please tag me in any response.

@AccioNox Yes you are correct there. Since i gave away where clue one is I need the answers/locations to be where that clue takes you so clue one's location/answer would be where and the url of clue 2 and so on.

Glad to see people are enjoying it! *flounces about*

Ok let me give you all a hypothetical example:

Say that this was a different scavenger hunt and in the introduction I gave you the first clue saying that you need to go to Diagon Alley.
That means that you and I both know that if you read the intro you know where the first location is...ergo I don't need you to tell me the first clue is in Diagon Alley. So instead tell me where the clue you find at Diagon Alley leads you, like this:
Quote:
Location answer: London Underground [insert url for LU thread here]




OR you could say:
Quote:
Clue One Location=Diagon Alley Answer=London Underground[insert url for LU thread here]



Either way is acceptable but I want to know that you got the answer for the clue you found there at the location

Hopefully this helps!
