    OK, contest is over! Bill The Builder is running away with things and has won his 2nd contest in a row! He got 8 of the 10 answers just like TechieGuy, vlad11 and coder but he was FIRST as stated in the rules.

    First of all, I never intended this contest to be this difficult/tricky. I knew one term would stump most people, but believe it or not SSL, SEO and SEOTOOL were not intentional.

    The "S" in SEO was part of DNS (a term no one got!) and I happened to spell the word LOOT (which is "tool" backward) and coincidentally the "OE" got in the middle and you have SEO TOOL.

    The correct puzzle is here...

    http://www.websitebabble.com/images/puzzle2.gif

    And the words are...

    1) CSS
    2) Bluevoda
    3) PayPal
    4) HTML
    5) WordPress
    6) Web
    7) Blog
    8) Tweet
    9) Thesis
    10) DNS

    Everyone got at least 5 right but the most popular # of correct answers was 6. Stay tuned for more contests! Bill, your moolah is on the way... again. Congrats!

    Here's the puzzle...

    http://www.websitebabble.com/images/puzzle.gif

    The correct answers may be positioned...

    a) Horizontal (backwards and forwards)
    b) Diagonal (backwards and forwards)
    c) Vertical (going down only)

    Rules (PLEASE READ CAREFULLY!)

    1) You must find the same 10 words/terms/acronyms I have on my answer sheet. (I did my best to make sure there aren't more to cause confusion, but your answers MUST match mine. No exceptions.)

    2) If no one finds all 10 words on my answer sheet then the person who gets the closest AND posts first will win. So if 8 is the highest # of correct answers then the person who posted the 8 first will win. Even if multiple people have the same time stamp with the most correct answers, only the first post wins. (This forum does count seconds so only the post on top will win. The time stamp will be irrelevant for any duplicates. Only the top post counts.) There will be no ties.

    3) To submit your entry just reply to this thread with your 10 answers.

    4) You can only post ONCE and this forum does not allow you to make edits to your post. So make sure it is your FINAL answer. If you post twice, the additional entries do not count.

    5) You MUST have a PayPal account. If you do not have PayPal then the 2nd person who got the closest according to the rules will win.

    6) There are NO EXCEPTIONS to any of these rules.

    7) Please read Rule 6 again.

    The contest closes Monday, October 26th 2009 at 3pm CT.

    *Winnings will be $50 USD minus any PayPal fees.
    Maybe I missed something but I thought it said the 26th of october, monday?

    Boy did I goof! My internal calendar was off and I thought today was the 26th so I already gave the answers. Of course it doesn't affect anyone who has already answered but it affected those who haven't answered yet. So sorry guys. Bill The Builder has already won so stay tuned for the next one. Sorry for any confusion!!

    wordpress
    seotool
    thesis
    tweet
    blog
    html
    paypal
    css
    panic

    WOOHOO!

    Thanks so much. Almost fell off my chair. I definitely missed the Bluevoda. I did have blue circled going down and dove going up.

    After finding 64 words in that puzzle one could only hope.

    Thanks again,
    Bill

    LOL, I see people are still guessing. I am going to close the thread because of all the confusion my error of closing the contest too soon has caused. I can't believe I thought today was the 26th!
