We had a few questions about How to Hunt on the Facebook page, so have put together a short list of FAQs to help you get the most out of the Hunt for Billy.
I’m confused! What do I have to do?
There are two hunts. Register here to enter.
Main Hunt – where you find Billy by visiting various sites.
On each Billy icon you find there is a phrase within an image. Click on the found Billy and you are taken to an entry page that shows the image phrase and a code word (or words) in Red below. Enter either the image phrase or the red code word to submit each entry, along with your email address. You can then use the Billy Tracker to keep track of which Hunt retailers you have completed.
Baby Hunt – instant entry with a fantastic prize to be won on each website. You can hunt the sites in any order, the Billy Tracker will remember your entries as you go, and you can log back in and carry on any time.
I can’t find Billy. Please can I have a clue?
Billy is hiding on various retailer sites and has already been found by hundreds of you. There’s no set order in which to find Billy. You can try a different site and the Billy Tracker will keep tabs on where you’ve found him for you.
You can also take a break and come back with fresh eyes later.
If this isn’t for you, try our Baby Hunt. This is a super-fast event – you only need to find Billy on the one web site to be in with a chance to win their generous prize donation.
Alternatively hang about towards the end of the week and we’re sure the participating retailers will let slip some clues. Make sure you’ve liked their Facebook pages to keep up to date.
I’ve found a Billy, but no code word(s). Help!
The phrase words are on the images with Billy and you need to click on the image to submit your entry, where you will see the image phrase along with a bit of context copy and a RED code word. Either the code word or image phrase are fine as entries.
I’ve found a Billy, but he has no code word, just “save more”.
Yes that is just what you are looking for. Enter and submit it – SAVE MORE or MORE are both fine.
Do I need to find Billy for every single retailer?
On the Main Hunt you need to find and submit correct entries for ALL 25 RETAILERS to enter the competition.
On the Easy Hunt you only need to find the generic Billy & Baby Bella image and enter for the chance to win that particular retailer’s prize.
Can I change my prize choice?
You would need to submit under a new email address to change your prize choices, which would mean re-entering all the phrase codes again.
How will prizes be allocated?
All prizes will be allocated based on those who have completed the Hunt successfully and as closely as possible to your preferred choices.
The Billy pictures I’ve found so far have more than one word in them – are we supposed to enter them all or just the red keyword.
Either is fine as a correct entry.
Guess what I’ll be doing at work tomorrow?
Will Billy’s Tracker work on another computer and remember where I’ve been?
Yes just sign in again on the new computer, and Billy’s tracker will have all saved all the code words you’ve found so far.
I can’t search a retailers website as it’s crashed.
Sometimes during the Hunt a retailer site might struggle with the amount of traffic, run slowly or even be unavailable for a while. If this happens you can go search for another Billy and come back to that retailer later.
As the Hunt has no path this year, the traffic is much more spread out however.
I’ve found Billy, but the link doesn’t seem to be working for mobile devices? It doesn’t link to the entry page.
We are sorry but although Billy’s pages are optimised for mobiles, not all the retailers’ websites may be. We don’t suggest hunting on a mobile as stated in our rules for this reason. Many of the retailers have added a text link alongside to help you. Alternatively you could try a laptop or desktop.
Is it first to finish win a Main Prize?
All entries go into a draw for the prizes and are allocated wherever possible based on the options you entered when signing up.
You have all Real Nappy Week to complete the Hunt.
Entry will close at Midnight on Sunday 4th May 2014. Any entries received after this time will not be included in the prize draw.
I signed up to the mailing list, so I need to register separately to take part in the Hunt?
Yes you do. Because we use the Billy Tracker and collect all your entries to a database, you need to register with your email address for the actual Hunt.
I signed up late to the mailing list and I can’t see previous mail updates.
Mailing list updates are also posted on the blog after they have gone out so you can catch up with them all there.
What are the prizes to be won?

Please note that whilst we have tried to test the Hunt on mobile devices and our Hunt pages work, we cannot take responsibility if the retailer’s sites don’t support mobile use or are not optimised for mobile or tablet devices.
We also cannot be held responsible if a participating retailer fails to get Billy on their website on time, whilst every effort has been made to ensure this doesn’t happen this will be outside of our control, keep an eye on our Facebook page for any technical notices.
We cannot be held responsible if a retailer’s website goes offline due to high traffic demand during the Hunt and if this happens you should concentrate on the other retailers websites taking part in the meantime.
