    I think all of these were already solved by people this was kinda pointless for potco to even bother with in my opinion.

    Yeah but there are a lot of forums that have treasure hunts such as these which proves once again that they are hunting the forums to find ways of keeping us busy. This is something somewhat new to them.

    I agree, they usually post game-announcements that don't go after a response. It's interesting.

    I wish they would put some time and effort in to the actual game. The Ravens Cove quest was good, but definitely not long enough. We need a Black Pearl part two, or something of that length. I know I sound like I am whining, but I want more. The clothes are good, although, I have no idea where they get the titles of the clothes from. Shouldn't the January clothes be for the month of March? Since they do look Irish :)

    I don't know, I thought the whole "treasure hunt" thing was kinda lame. It's like they were trying to come up with something else for us to do, but the people that always have the good ideas were off work that day... lol
    I have to admit though, I did go and find the answers to the ones that weren't already answered, but now it's done and it's back to the normal things :p

    I agree with Sven and Davy, it may be a little lame, but it gives me hope that they are checking out forums, looking at peoples ideas and things they would like to see added to the game. It's a small step forward which hopefully will lead to bigger and better things.:piratemickey:

    Thanks. I answered all of them, but I think only the first ~10ish people to answer them correctly get credit. I additionally think it might be you can only win one, as I answered the questions regarding Captain Job and Sean Tones correctly, which were posted after Le Cerdo.

    2 and 4 remain unanswered. I responded Weatherby Swann and 30, respectively.

    Very possible, I was counting at 3 in the morning and hadn't slept yet. My math is bad enough when I'm awake.
