    Default Easter Egg Hunt

    Hello everyone,

    We've hidden 20 eggs on the forum.
    You can find them in various threads in every forum section except the Archive.
    They can also be found in avatar, profile pictures and visitor messages.

    You can send your locations via PM to the account called: Forum Competition.

    The players with the most correct locations will win 200 gold.

    We will collect the replies and pick 4 players by random from the pool with the most and correct locations.

    This contest will end on Thursday March 31st at noon EDT.
    The winner will then be announced on the next day (not an April fools joke )

    Happy hunting and a happy Easter from the Travian .us Team!

    The eggs look like this, and to get you started. This is the first location.

    Is there any rules about people who are editing their posts and putting this egg in their avatar?

    Good question, didn't even consider that. But no, if you see any non official staff account using the egg it's false.

    There are a few eggs spread around in threads, you can double check them though because I made the edit and my name will not show up nor a date/timestamp on the post. If you do see one they're also fakes.

    To give you an idea, 7 of them are in threads but not all of them are in threads where normal users have access to make edits.

    Cheers,
    Minke

    Hope you get him


    PS: Minke, I assume only you know where all those eggs where hidden, no other mod right?

    That's correct, only I have the list of all the locations.

    I'm glad you like the super easy egg I made so much you've used it on your profile. I just hope it won't make people too confused though

    Cheers,
    Minke

    Do you have "Save a copy of sent messages in my Sent Items folder by default" enabled?

    Haikus are easy
    But sometimes they don't make sense
    For petulant frogs


    Or, maybe they do!
    I'm glad I'm not judgemental like all you smug, superficial idiots

    Cheater!

    Cré, you could always try to find them yourself for fun. I have found a few reading through threads or by accident.

    It's what I would do if I didn't have to keep mine exactly how it is for madsquirrels and erazer.

    Not a problem for sending it twice.

    And yes, you can pick on which server. It's a voucher code so you choose on which .us server you want it or keep it and use later on. They're valid for a year.

    Congratulations to Donald, Ronnie, Badwulf and Spider!

    We will see everyone again in the future for another forum competition. If you have ideas for one, share them below!

    Cheers,
