The MH Golden Week Scavenger Hunt
Golden Week = no new chapters from your favorite manga series =
no funfun!!! This year Golden Week will be incredibly fun here on MangaHelpers, we are bringing you for your entertainment and enjoyment The MH Golden Week Scavenger Hunt!!
Rules and Guidelines:
To celebrate Golden Week, MangaHelpers is hosting “The MH Gold Week: Scavenger Hunt.” This hunt will challenge your knowledge about manga, anime and MangaHelpers.
The scavenger hunt will begin on April 24th, 2011 and will end on May 1st, 2011.
The scavenger hunt will be broken into 8 rounds, one for each day. In the starting round a cryptic riddle will be presented by me, the hunt host, to the whole community. The rest of the forum will try to solve it. This first riddle will lead you to more clues and riddles. You will have 24 hrs to solve the riddles. In order to solve the riddles you will need to follow different clues and visit different threads on MH. In this way, the faster you solve the first riddle the better since you can know the next clue earlier and thus have more time to solve it.
Once you solve the riddles/clues (3 riddles/clues per day), you need to send me (destiny4ever), Blai, saladesu, igotthegoods, or M3J all the answers and the URLs (containing the answers) via PM. If the answers are right, we will PM you the green light to move on to the next round.
After each round a list of the people/teams that are still in the game and the ones who have been eliminated will be posted.
Once all 8 rounds have been played, the person or the team who correctly solves the most riddles wins: a treasure filled with and awesome-looking badge and bar, a front page interview, and your own very custom title.
The winner/s will be announced on May 2nd, 2011. In the situation of a tie, the tie will be broken by solving more riddles.
The purpose of “The MH Gold Week: Scavenger Hunt” is to do something as a whole community while having the most fun during Golden Week.
To participate in this scavenger hunt please PM Blai, saladesu, igotthegoods, or M3J to sign up for it. Just write that you want to participate in this event, and if you are considering doing it in a team, please also write the usernames of your teammates. Only three members per team will be allowed. Each person has to make their own submission, even if they are part of the same team.
On April 23th, a list with the usernames of all the participants will be posted, in that way the list can be modified before the scavenger hunt begins (fix mistakes, add more participant, remove participants, etc.).
-If you have any questions about the awards competition, please feel free to PM me, Blai, saladesu, igotthegoods or M3J or you can also post your questions in this thread.
List of Current Participants
If you have PMed Blai, saladesu, igotthegoods, or M3J but don't see your name on the list after a day (we do have real lives ), please make a post in this thread and one of us'll add you in!
THE HUNT HAS BEGUN
New Members can join the MH Scavenger Hunt anytime, except on the last day of the hunt
New members can join anytime during the scavenger hunt, however, they will still need to solve the current days riddle and go back and solve the previous days to pass the next round. No extra time will be given to the new players, so the people who joined the hunt from the start will keep the advantage of time over the newcomers.
Example: If a new participant joins on day 3, then he/she will need to send in day 1-3's riddles/hints/answers and catch up so that he/she can continue on like normal for the rest of the days... At the end of the hunt, everyone should've have sent in all day 1-8's riddles/answers. However, only the first person/group who sends in all the answers can win.
New rules regarding teams:
To all the participants: You can have up-to three members in teams. You can form teams at any time during the scavenger hunt.
If you still don't have a team member but would like to have one. You can ask members who are not in a team yet.
However, your teammates should be in the same position as you, meaning that the people with whom you are going to join forces should be in the same round/stage as you.
Please notify any of the mods working on this project about your desire to form a team with another player/s so that your team can become official.
If you have any questions regarding the new rules, please post your questions here or PM any of the moderators in charge of the hunt.
Thanks to all the members who took part in the Scavenger Hunt.

There was some confusion on how to sign up for the contest, so I've bolded it above and made it red so it stands out a little more.
I hope to get lots of PMs about this!Quote:

Those of you that have PMed desty, please PM one of us instead up until Sunday. desty will be busy so there's no guarantee whether she'll read it in time or not. Resend to goodsy, desu, blai, or me so we can ensure that you'll be entered.
We've added a list with the current participants to the opening post. If you've signed up with one of us, please check that your name's on the list. If not, please post in this thread and one of us will take care of it (of course, be practical and give us some time... We aren't online 24/7!)
You've got me on the list twice
oops! fixed ~saladesu

We want, and need, more participants! It's going to be awesome y'all!
Is this the thread where the riddles will be posted?
No, they'll post be posted in different places. You gotta find 'em... I think. Don't take my full word for it since I rarely remember stuff.
Anyway, just a warning, don't PM me today since I"ll be gone for nearly the whole day. PM desu, blai, goodsy, they're more likely to read your PM and set things up.

Hm, if you get something wrong, do you still get another chance, or are you out of the running just like that?
You won't exactly be able to send in a wrong answer. Basically, the first riddle will lead to a place on MH, which will contain the next clue to the next place, and so on and so forth~
At the end of 8? clues, you'll PM someone and you'll have to list all the places with the clues, etc.
jesus christ !!! we have to find the riddles on the whole forum or what
