The scavenger hunt task wants you to 'embed' the video. To embed a youtube video, you are supposed to surround the youtube address with [youtube][/youtube] tags.

For example:

This makes the video render on permies like this:

On your post, it seems that you had posted a link without the [youtube] tags, and someone in the staff has fixed it for you.

Create a post with an image (97/1)
Create a post with a youtube or vimeo video (98/1)

I'm pretty sure I have only posted a single Vimeo video, for a BB, yet the count seems to be that video plus all of the image posts!

Excellent observation!

This is fixed now!
This is fixed now. Please try again.

It looks like there was something odd happened with one of your secondary email addresses.

I guess that if you add it back as a secondary email, it would help the forum software map your account to the correct kickstarter projects.

Please try adding it from here:

(The email address in question was something like this:  m*******@big*****
Thanks for confirming that, Erick!

I just merged the two accounts for you. You should now be able to log in as Erick Miller with your email.

I looked around from the back end of the software and.... you were right!  We have two accounts with the same email. That's odd!

I can merge the two accounts for you. Would you prefer to keep your name as "Bob Wilson" or "Erick Miller" ?

Now you can do that. I just added this feature for you.

Nice!  I'm excited to watch did you view it T?  I went back to the email that I got when I paid and clicked on the code...but it just seems to have sent me to this thread, so I figure I screwed up somehow.  It's not listed in "My Stuff" so I'm needing some help!

Gregg, it seems that you bought it as a "gift code". When you buy something as a gift code, you can either send it to someone or redeem for yourself. Since paul has given you direct access to the item, I just cancelled that gift code for you.

FYI - I noticed that you have a bunch of gift codes never redeemed. To see a list of these gift codes, go to your ledger and then select "DM threads - gifts I manage" from the left.
