Anyone interested in somehow making a bot to find these?  Think of Phin's payouts as a bounty for making a useful service Wink

I'll assume you didn't see this rule, ineededausernametojointhisbbstomesswithbrunoscontest.  Grin

8. I reserve the right to cancel this contest if I see or smell robot droppings.

WTHAI? 8 will be posted shortly.

Haha, didn't see that. Smiley

I think 6 is near Vilnius (because of the clue and the appearance of the woods around Vilnius). I just think I really suck at this game, I really can't find any of these Cheesy

And with respect to the number 3 hint. Pan flutes are really popular in Peru. I checked out some of the find places of Peruvian pan flutes (temples) but it looks really different. Google loads really slowly in Peru as well and the colorings are quite inconsistent as well. No clue.

Yep! You really suck at this game. You take the time to get so close, inform others your damn good findings, then give up. After providing you this kind revelation, care to give it another whirl?

It did, and now I am done. I just spent an hour charting the area around Vilnius and if it is there I am not going to find it. I hope someone else find's it before I am tempted to go look again.

BTW: if anyone is ever lost in the area around Vilnius, give me a call since I am an expert now Smiley

edit:

I guess posting this on Mechanical Turk goes against the spirit of the game right? Wink (if it isn't clear: this is a joke)

My dad was born outside of Vilnius. To clarify my post to you, Peru is spot on, while Lithuania is close. Sorry for having you becoming an expert on my fatherland.

Although the results will make the contest too easy, thus shutting this down, perhaps if you present it to those on Mechanical Turk in such a way that they would tackle the problem. I suggest doing so without mentioning this contest, thereby someone reading the rules may decide that it's not worth their time. If a solution is found by that team, imagine how that tool could possibly be used for other applications,  a tool that may otherwise not be developed for years to come if it weren't presented earlier. You may even be able to win a couple coins in the process. Good luck with this endeavor.

I'm no good with the clues given!  The first one was easy because it was so narrowed-down.  I fear I'm not even close with any of the others though...

You should at least have the countries for 2, 3 and 5, with 6 not that far behind. 7 is not that bad, and will get easier. 8 is a little tougher.

Time for WTHAI? 9: Guess the location within the first hour and win 20 BTC. Guess the location during the following 23 hours after the first hour, and win 10 BTC. Once guessed, I'll donate 2 BTC to Bitcoin100 along with paying out the winnings. After 1 month without a correct answer, I will donate 1 BTC to Bitcoin100, then reveal the answer.

Major clues for all 7 yet to be located images:

  • 1. Located by SgtSpike
  • 2. B
  • 3. P
  • 4. Located by BTCurious
  • 5. I
  • 6. P
  • 7. I
  • 8. A
  • 9. Chances are you'll never visit this country with, or without, clouds.

WTHAI? 9
WTHAI? 9WTHAI? 9

New Payout Schedule:

  • 20 BTC if found within the first hour.
  • 10 BTC if found within the next 23 hours.
  • 5 BTC if found before the end of the second day using time stamps (same applies below).
  • 3 BTC if found before the end of the third day.
  • 1.5 BTC if found before the end of the forth day.
  • 1 BTC if found before the end of the fifth day.
  • .5 BTC if found before the end of the sixth day.
  • .1 BTC if found before the end of the seventh day up to 30 days later.

As one can clearly see, this new payout schedule is better than what was originally offered.

Let the fun continue!

Amazing that some guy would have a contest without attaching a product or service to it, with the exception of bringing awareness to Bitcoin100, that is.

Nice find, SgtSpike. Now you'll have to wait 60 days before playing again since you're the first two-time winner.  Grin (only kidding)

The time stamp for WTHAI? 8 was December 31, 2011, 08:41:31 PM, and your posting time was Today at 10:36:53 PM, therefore I owe you 3 BTC. How does it feel to have something owed to you?  Grin I'm sending the coins as soon I post this post by clicking the post button...I'm almost ready to click it...BRB! Somebody's at the door...Back! Ready to almost click that post button...Click!...I think it's broken...I'm stuck on this page, and I want to get off so badly to pay you.
