I fully expect one of you people to win something.

You find the most obscure stuff as it is without $1000 motivating you.

Maya Angelou and Clay Aiken

but when you find them on whitepages.com they don't have that symbol...what gives!
and where do these clues come from anyway? I don't even see anything about this on the front of whitepages.com

so what happened to the stories on the front page being about campus events and things related to NC State, lately it's just seemed to serve as further advertising for other sites...isn't that what the ads are for? besides stuff like this just pushes things actually related to NC State further down and off the homepage

who really cares about some other business's attempt to get more visitors and hence more money

just look at the very first story that explains how the frontpage story should work:

another thing - dunno if this is true, but you may have to be city specific.

ok well, do you have to click on the name and it's on that page? Or is it when you do a search, you can scroll down and one of the names will have this logo beside it?

gee here I am thinking -

man heres an easy way for these people to MAYBE make $1000 doing what they do anyways - waste time on the internet.

So fucking file a goddamned lawsuit. I swear we can't ever do anything right for you people.

^it was probably locked out due to everybody finding it, or it was last week's entry. I THINK they are going on one or two famous people per week. I apparently found this weeks or something. Hopefully there aren't a lot of people finding it...

Drovkin, the logo will be beside the name on the scroll page I would assume. The only thing conflicting with that is that the ones I have found have been the single entry for the column, so that's why I was suggesting you might have to enter the city name also.
