You might try switching browsers if you have trouble with flash-based sites.

  6. Tori Rigby's link doesn't work. It says the domain isn't connected to a website.

  7. Abigail Johnson's link opens a mess with a button for "blog" that doesn't go anywhere. Hint: Are you sure all these sites are customer-respectful (no drivel about DOWNgrading to Windows 10 allowed!)?

    Since the Rafflecopter grabs people's contact information before displaying the actual clues, if you can't open all of these sites using Windows Vista, please e-mail me the secret numbers and I'll still believe that this is a legitimate game.

  8. Though actually this kind of contest should require that all links work with Opera, circa 1992. *And* in all countries where the contest is publicized.

    The people most likely to benefit from free books are NOT the ones who have the latest electronics. Au contraire!

  16. I'm really confused because clicking on Courtney Brandt takes you to Ann Benjamin, are they the same person? Also, clicking on Darlene P. Campos takes you to her facebook, so I found where she was talking about YASH, but the link takes me to what I believe is Ginger Scotts blog who is hosting her. So I don't know if she just hadn't posted yet or was taking you to the author who hosted her or what and I'm really confused if the number posted on that page is her number or Ginger Scott's number

    1. Courtney Brandt and Ann Benjamin are the same person. =)

    2. For Darlene if you click on her name on the stuck page above, it will take you right to her blog post. Her number is listed there.

    3. Oh! Okay, it updated. Thanks! I was still using the page I loaded this morning like 7 hours ago!!!! That's good to know! I thoguth they magically updated broken links, I didn't realize you had to refresh the page!!! thanks!!!!!!! This is good to know, cause I have several on the first run through whose blogs weren't up and I thought I could just click them again later and see if they'd be up, but now I know I have to refresh!

    5. I keep getting a really scary "Privacy error" message when I try to go onto Austin Aslan's page in Team Red.

      Delete
    6. That is Chrome (I'm guessing) alerting you that it's not an https:// encrypted site, which is only a problem if you enter sensitive/personal information on the site. You can click advanced and then proceed to his page.

  18. For Dawn IUS, her post seems to be from April this year stating she is on the green team not the pink. I did not find any other blogs. Not sure if the number in the old post is still correct.

    ReplyDelete

    1. Dawn doesn't have a recent post (i thought she did but I guess not) but her old post is the same number this time around. It's listed (44) under "known problems" in pink on this page along with Chad Odom (23) who also does not have his page up.
