Hello Whyvillians! There haven't been many games in the Times lately, so I thought I?' introduce something that will win you clams and hopefully give yourself some enjoyment: a username word scramble. Below are twenty-six popular BBSer (from the past and the present) usernames all scrambled up. You may have already guessed, but your goal is to unscramble each username, then send me a y-mail with your answers. (Please do not post your answers on the BBS.) Who knows, you might be featured in this article!
The first 10 people to y-mail me at least 22 of the 26 usernames will receive 3,000 clams. If you are one of those first 10 and you unscramble ALL 26 out of 26, you will receive 5,000 clams. Also, if you just send me 22 out of the 26 answers before May 29th, 2011, you will receive an automatic 800 clams for effort. (You will receive 1,000 clams for getting all 26 right.) Keep in mind if I find out that you have cheated and sent your answers to a friend, or have tried to fool me and complete this challenge on multiple accounts, you will not receive clams. (Yes, there are ways to find out if you are cheating, so please don't try anything.)
On a final note, if you y-mail me your answers, and then tell me what all of them have in common, (it is not that they are all BBSers,) you will receive an additional 200 clams.
Let the game begin!
One of the usernames has been found in the BBS spelled backwards and forwards. When spelled backwards, ignore the fact it starts with a number 1, just pay attention to the first letter.
The BBS is your cheat sheet - all the answers can be found there throughout the sections!
