Scavenger Hunt 2015 - Results!


Kai-V
After much suspense and speculation, it's time to reveal the results of the Scavenger Hunt!!

First of all, the whole team would like to thank you for participating so actively. You guys clearly had a passion and it was so pleasant to see you all hard at work!



Answers

We'll start by giving the answers for the questions. The success rate for this year's bunch was quite high, so good job to all, some almost free points!
  • Find the fact on worldbeyblade.org: List all the Committee Members, retired and active, as well as the date on which they were added to the staff team Admittedly, this question should have been worth more, but the trick was really to look at list of of Members who had received the Face of Soul and just look back a few days prior to when they had gotten it to find the date of their introduction to the Committee. Alternatively, just look at the first post of some of our announcement topics. After that, there were just around five exceptions you had to work more for, but it was totally doable. Here's what should be the complete list:

    Bey Brad - Dec 4th 2008, Aug 14th 2015
    Kai-V - April 27th 2009
    Kei - Dec 4th 2008
    Synesthesia - Dec 4th 2008
    G - Dec 4th 2008
    Blader DJ - Dec 4th 2008
    Khel - March 30th 2009
    Guardian Odin - March 30th 2009
    theflightyellz - May 5th 2010
    Rocky - June 2nd 2009
    Hiro Ayami - August 30th 2009
    Yugi Jyudai - August 30th 2009, December 5th 2009
    Serotonin - Dec 17th 2009
    Arupaeo - December 5th 2011
    Hazel - December 5th 2011
    LMAO - August 27th 2015
    Naijalak - June 26th 2014
    Uwik - January 27th 2013
    The Boss - June 4th 2015
    Blitz - June 20th 2011
    ZenX - Jan 09 2009
    Aqua - Dec 17th 2009
    Daegor42 - Jan 8th 2011

    Also remember that the Committee was technically only introduced when Beywiki got turned into the World Beyblade Organization, even though some of the above Members have been part of the staff since almost the beginning of Beywiki.

  • Find the fact on worldbeyblade.org: "Who once vandalized Beywiki's content?" Blader:Kenny

  • Find the fact on worldbeyblade.org: "Where does our use of 'carp' as a word filter come from?" Blader:Kenny's FIGHTING ANIMALS topic. It started with "Ginta said carp", but I am not certain it should be linked to hah.

  • Find the fact on Beywiki!: "What are all the languages covered by Beywiki's database?" For this, we accepted two sets of answers : either just Beywiki's four languages (English, French, Turkish and Italian), since the question did say "Beywiki's database", or Beyblade Wiki's full list of languages, but English and Turkish needed to be added to the long list since technically Beywiki has already merged with Beyblade Wiki even if the articles have not all been moved yet : English, Deutsch, Español, Русский, Polski, Français, Italiano, Português, Chamoru, Ελληνικά, עברית, Bahasa Indonesia, 日本語, Nederlands, ‪Norsk (bokmål)‬, Português do Brasil, Tiếng Việt, 中文.

  • Find the fact on Beywiki: Name four Beyblades that only have up to 100 units released. There were many good answers, but the most common were : Legend Beyblade Set, Gryph Dragooon SA165WSF, Valkyrie Wing Accel Black Knight Ver., etc. Wyvern DJ Gold Ver. apparently had 400 copies, so it couldn't be accepted!

  • Find the fact on Beywiki: "What months and years did each of the three Beyblade generations' toyline AND anime begin?" This is the full list :
    Bakuten Shoot Beyblade toyline : July 1999, anime : January 2001
    Metal Fight Beyblade toyline : August 2008, anime : April 2009
    Beyblade Burst toyline : July 2015, anime : April 2016

  • Find the fact on worldbeyblade.org: Name one account that was deleted from the World Beyblade Organization. This question was kindly donated by Hato, who also humbly decided to remove himself from the contest to avoid any conflict of interest! The best answer was DormantSpirit, which we discussed more than once even years after the act, but there was also Flaming Tiger. Essentially, deleted accounts have posts with black usernames.

  • Find the fact on worldbeyblade.org: "what was the quest for?" Also donated by Hato! The answer was Quetz, from "The Quest for Quetz", our first Blader Rewards campaign!

  • Find the fact on worldbeyblade.org: "What was the name of the Beyblade series that could have been released after Beyblade G Revolution?" Another donation from Hato! It was "Beyblade Insect".

  • Find the fact on worldbeyblade.org: Name two other alternative links for the World Beyblade Organization. We had a few that we are actually going to get rid off, but some of them are : worldbeyblade.net, worldbeyblade.com, beywiki.com, beyblademetalfury.com, etc.


Hopefully you're not biting the interior of your cheeks too much after seeing how simple some of these questions were, but it's all for fun anyway!




Prizes and... Winners!

Before moving on to the real meat of this post, here's a remainder of all the Face Boosters you can get in exchange for the points you earned, not to mention the Anniversary Face 2015 that you will automatically receive if you succeeded in reaching at least three points!

WOOHOO I DID IT! Thanks so much to the committee (especially Kai-V for putting up with all those PMs) and the WBO for hosting these scavenger hunts, this was my first time actually participating even though I've been on WBO since 2010 haha! The time I spent trying to get 49 points was certainly worth it! Thanks again!

I gotta say though, I was a bit worried about the competition, it sure was insane this year!

Neo
ALLLLLLL RIGHT!
Attack Rings! The best prize; something money can't buy.
Thanks to all of the organizers and people who bought/donated prizes.

I guess ... I'll wait to see what I get from my VIVID before I decide on what boosters I want?

You've failed me. You're...9 places away from number 1...though congrats nonetheless. I shall protect ye in AN now.
Wombat
Wow, thanks for posting the results so quickly! The competition sure was tougher this year, I remember when I would just get enough points for a VIVID and accidentally end up placing haha. Congrats to all the winners!

Given how fast the teeth wear down, another Valkyrie is never a bad thing. Smile

Is the Face Booster DRIVER Exclusive to this event, or will it be available in the future?
1 Face Booster CRIMSON [Image: faceboostercrimson.png]
1 Face Booster AZURE [Image: faceboosterazure.png]
1 Face Booster AMBER [Image: faceboosteramber.png]

Glad I made the face! Was unable to participate alot due to some personal things going on, but happy to see another good anniversary!
Kei
Congratulations everyone! I'm glad that so many of you seem to be continuing to enjoy this every year. Smile

And as others have stated, all of this would not have been possible without the immense amount of work Kai-V did to organize her–surely chaotic–box of private messages and calculate everything. Thank you, Kai-V!
