    A mysterious vault has appeared within Contest Central. Do you have what it takes to crack the code?

    Welcome to the St. Patrick's Day Gold Rush! In this little event, you will be tasked with finding the combination to the mysterious vault and grabbing the goodies inside!

    How to Participate

    Create a thread within to place all of your findings.
    Locate all of the hidden images, post links to them in your thread and follow the directions to solve the combination.
    You may not share or discuss your answers here or anywhere else.

    Combination Puzzle

    There will be 7 hidden images scattered throughout Contest Central, Photo of the Week and Graphic of the Week. You must find each image and record the corresponding post number. These post numbers will need to be deciphered into the final 7 letter word combination to the vault.
    Note: No images will be hidden in the following places: POTW Discussion Thread, GOTW Discussion Thread or the entire subsection. Anything else will be fair game.

    Riddles

    Each of the 7 hidden images will have a riddle to help you locate them. It is your choice if you wish to solve the riddle to help you find the images, or you can just brute force it if you want.

    What happens every few months and showcases all of the big spenders?
    Where would be the best place to find the Golden Hour?
    Look for a place of honor, nobility and great warriors.
    I guess you could consider this riddle just another version of this.
    All of this might not be gold, but at least it sparkles.
    If you aren't sure how to make this for your entry, I guess we can help you out.
    Maybe with a little luck you can find the previous time this was held.


    Raffle Prizes

    Everyone that successfully locates the images and solves the combination puzzle will receive five Gold Coins. These Gold Coins may be used to enter the special raffle drawings for special prizes.


    Raffle Prizes are as follows:
    1 Gold Bar
    1 Month Golden Sparkles
    1 Extra Name Change
    10 CC Points
    75k Reputation
    All prizes will have a maximum of two winners.
    *Staff may not enter the raffle for the Gold Bars*



    If you do not wish to spend your Gold Coins on Raffle Prizes, you can choose to spend your Gold Coins on the following:
    1 CC Point per Gold Coin
    5k Reputation per Gold Coin


    You may enter as many of your Gold Coins into any one specific raffle to increase your chances, however each prize will have unique winners. This means that if you enter all five Gold Coins into one drawing, you can only win once but will have five chances to be drawn. You can enter all of the raffles and win different prizes, but you cannot win the same prize multiple times.

    Gold Coins that are not redeemed by the end of the event will be automatically converted into their equivalent reputation value (5k per coin).

    The two members who win the Gold Bars will find out their purpose at a later date.

    Duration

    The event will run from Tuesday, March 17th at 4pm UTC to Saturday, March 21st at 4pm UTC.
    The final day to enter the raffles with Gold Coins will be Monday, March 23rd at 4pm UTC.

    Good Luck

    The images have been found and the combination was solved! The following people have received 5 Gold Coins for unlocking the vault:

    @Kira Yagami
    @Nana
    @Skylar
    @Mysticreader
    @Nataly

    The hidden images were the following:









    The riddles took you to:

    What happens every few months and showcases all of the big spenders? - Elusive Prizes 4
    Where would be the best place to find the Golden Hour? - PotW 59 -- Sunsets
    Look for a place of honor, nobility and great warriors. - GotW 53 -- Samurai Avatars
    I guess you could consider this riddle just another version of this. - Brainteasers
    All of this might not be gold, but at least it sparkles. - PotW 76 -- Glitter
    If you aren't sure how to make this for your entry, I guess we can help you out. - Temporary stocks and renders album
    Maybe with a little luck you can find the previous time this was held. - Saint Patrick's Day

    And the combination was:

    18 1 9 14 2 15 23
    or
    RAINBOW

    With the vault opened, the Raffle portion will now begin. Those of you with Gold Coins may now choose which Raffles you wish to enter. Each Raffle costs 1 Gold Coin to enter and you may enter as many of your Gold Coins into each raffle as you wish. Gold Coins cannot be traded to other members by any means and the Raffle Prizes may not be traded or converted either. Please be sure that you want the Raffle Prize when you enter it. If nobody enters the Raffle for a specific prize, no one will win that prize.

    Each Raffle will be drawn via Dice Roll in the thread via a numbered list posted below. Your place in the list is dependent on when you enter. Once the first list is drawn from, the winner will be removed and a new set of dice will be thrown for the second list. If only two people enter that Raffle, both will win by default.

    If you do not wish to enter any of the Raffles or only wish to enter some of them, you may choose to exchange your Gold Coins for 1 CC Point or 5k Reputation per Gold Coin.

    The Raffle Entry Period lasts from Saturday, March 21st at 4pm UTC to Monday, March 23rd at 4pm UTC. You may post which Raffles you wish to enter in this thread and if you would prefer to convert your Gold Coins into direct points/reputation. Conversions will not occur until after the Raffles are drawn. Any leftover Gold Coins will automatically convert into 5k Reputation per Gold Coin.

    As a reminder the Raffle Prizes are as follows:

    1 Gold Bar
    1 Month Golden Sparkles
    1 Extra Name Change
    10 CC Points
    75k Reputation

    Each Raffle will have a maximum of two unique winners.​
