    Wow what a cool idea! and yet another fantasic fun menu by Jamie! Thank's to everyone who is putting this contest together!

    I have a question though, can the cake be "anywhere", i mean is it only on the Muppet Central web site or can it also be in let's say the Fun and Games folder on the message board? i don't know if that's possable or not. I just wasn't sure.

    Thanks!

    Hi Zack,

    Glad you are excited about the contest and our birthday.

    The cake will not be on the forum. It will be on the main domain (www.muppetcentral.com) either on the front page or in one of the sections of the site (news, collectibles, articles, guides, radio, cards, help).

    Hi Phil, thanks for that info i also just thought up of another question dealing with the company's helping make this happen.

    Of course Time-Life represent TMS DVD's, Palisades Toys the action figures, Sideshow-Weta Collectibles the bust and doll's and Rhino Records along with VH1 Save The Music repersent the muppet/song cd's but who is the Nettwerk America?
    I have not heard of them.

    Thank's again Phil,

    Zachary,

    So will there be any *real* cake?

    :D

    Emmy, if you get the frosting, I hope you intend to share.

    That really depends on what kind of frosting and how much I get...

    :D

    If you mean flavour, I like almost any kind. If we're talking brand here, I don't know names, but the cheapies can sometimes be yucky.

    The world of frosting is almost interesting. There are different flavors, brands. Sprinkles or no sprinkles. In the end, it's all sugary goodness (unless it tastes bad. Then it's not good)...
     
  12. GREAT MENU, Jamie!! :D

    I love how you included Luna! And there's even a "Little Janice"! LOL!! I made sure this time, lol! :p

    Phil, does this mean it could be on an article from several years ago, OR that it only apears on one o the front pages for a limited point of time?

    (If the later will it ever be on in England time??? Like the middle of your night!!!)

    Yes, the cake could be on any article or page within our www.muppetcentral.com domain. The forum is not included. The time will be different every day, so we will try to accommodate those that are overseas and also those that are gone during the day in the US and not home until the evenings. That is why each morning, a two-hour estimate of the time-frame of when the cake will be hidden will be announced each day. Everyone will have 28 opportunities to win throughout the month of February.

    Check out the rules if you have more questions. After we do this for a couple days this weekend, it will become more clear how everything will work.

    Sorry you can't eat the cake Emmy! We are testing ways to send it through cyberspace for you though. :D

    Are you sure you are "testing" and not tasting the cake Phil?;)

    I want pie.

    Sweet! (and that ain't just a reference to the cake) So, it can be ANYWHERE at all? Other than the forum? Cool! What a challenge!

    How about frosting. Can I just win some frosting or something?

    Phil I have another question;-) When the cake is hidden lets say the time is 4-6 does the cake go up at four and is hidden till six,and that is if no one finds it before six? so someone could find the cake at 4:01 if they were lucky. or is it that the cake could be hidden between 4-6 meaning the cake may not be hidden till five an hour after 4?

    I don't know id that question made sense...but thanks again!

    Zack,

    Just a reminder that the first cake will be hidden TOMORROW, Saturday February 1st.

    Zack, to answer your question, as an example the cake will be hidden sometime between 4-6 (or whatever the time for that day happens to be). This will be announced in the morning.

    Once the cake has been hidden on the site, ANYTIME between 4-6 I will announce on the board when it has been hidden and what the prizes for that day will be. This announcement might be at 4:01 or 5:59 or any time in between.

    So when you find out the two-hour time-frame it may be a good idea to hang out around the forum. Then when you read the announcement that the cake has been hidden, it's time to go on the hunt. In the unlikely event, the cake isn't found by midnight, then we will have an extra day at the end of the contest. Let me know if this answers all your questions.
