There's no breaking traditions: the Scavenger Hunt 2015 is on!


To those who are new to the concept, all you need to do is to achieve one of the goals or find one of the answers in the list below to gain points. Those points rank you up against other Members, and the top scorers will win physical prizes. But no worries: almost everyone ends up with Face Boosters as well!

Once you think you've found a correct answer or if you've done one of the achievements, simply send a private message to Kai-V with the proof of it. To start off, while we gauge how busy this year's Scavenger Hunt will keep us, we will not straight away let you know if the answer to a question is good. Therefore, be sure to take your time and research your answer to verify that it's correct before sending it, but you can't share answers with others!

A scoreboard will be posted at least once midway into the Scavenger Hunt period, to let you know if you need to work more to get higher. You have until January 4th 2016 11:59:59 PM EST to send your proofs of your achievements and your answers. That means that anything sent afterwards, even if it was technically achieved before January 4th, will unfortunately not count.


Without further ado, here's what you can get out of this Scavenger Hunt!



Prizes

Here are all the prizes you can win if you reach the top of the scoreboard!

Like for the prizes, we'll try to add more challenges and questions along the way. It'll be super easy to get more points, you'll see!

We'll hide the first Face shortly, be on the lookout for updates in this thread!




The rules are set, the prizes are at the end of the road; now it's up to you guys! May the best Blader Spirit win! Good luck to all of you!

This is the best. I may do this with my almost 2-year-old just for fun Smile

Hopefully I can actually find one of the hidden faces first this year. I've never really participated in any past scavenger hunts...

Time to stalk the forums endlessly looking for answers and hidden faces XD
*Ginga*
I am the best at finding faces. Serious
Cake
Shhhh, you have plenty.
First time participating.. already got a bunch of stuff I know I'm gonna do!

I never did one of these, so where do I answer the question parts of the scavenger hunt.

Pretty sure this mushy video goes here. XD

As it is written in the first post, everything, whether the proof of an achievement or an answer, needs to be sent by private message to me.
Finals week here, but I'll find time for this! Get hyped!
Looks like it's that time of year again! Hard to believe that this will be my third time participating in the Hunt. Props to the committee for the sweet prizes. I'll probably get in on the action a little late since I have finals coming up, but I don't want to miss out on getting that 7th anniversary face at least!
Wombat
Oh man I'm going to go ham on this this year. I do have a few questions though.

If I finished that Wolborg 4 draft I started back when the Project of the Moment was still the Moment would it count? If not I can probably write something about Rushing Boar/Hammer Tusk. (I'll still get on finishing the Wolborg Draft once I'm on winter break though)

Can I still earn points if I just explain it to an adult? I'm pretty sure I know zero kids younger than 5 years old at this point in my life.

What if the tournament thread is closed? I have some AN Pictures (unfortunately featuring mainly me) but I'm pretty sure the threads for those tournaments are closed. Should I just PM them to Mitsu or someone or will the threads be reopened?

Oh man this is my jam.

How detailed do we want these to be? What exactly are you looking for? I can remember a lot of specific things about my own combos/matchups but not for other people. It would be cool if users could collaborate on the event articles.



EDIT: one last question. Is this the first face or nah?

Any questions about the Scavenger Hunt should be directed to solely Kai-V Wink

I was actually wondering where does the tournament report go exactly, also do I PM it to you or post it in the designated location myself. Thanks! Kai-V
Kai-V
Guys, I definitely read these threads in priority as of yesterday, no need to tag me hah.

It really needs to be a part draft from scratch, but if you can finish the Wolborg 4 article, that can definitely count for the second challenge in that quote.

You would only gain the two points associated to the adult part.

Oh, it can really just be posted in the WBO Organized Play Random Thoughts topic or something like that. I realise that most of our tournament threads are moved out of reach in the archive forum, hah.

Ideally, if tournament articles could be as detailed as possible, that would be super amazing. I know for sure you are the best person to do that, at least for events you attended.

I think there are a few obvious sections that need to be included such as :
1- date, host, number of participants, location (down to the park or venue), format all in an infobox
2- at least the top three and their winning combinations
3- a neutral summary of how the rounds went;
4- how the finals went
5- trivia ? special anecdotes

Someone asked me about this and I also told them that personal comments, shown as a series of quotes near the bottom of the article, would be great to have as well, if each person is OK with their message appearing publicly on the Beyblade Wiki.

There will probably need to be some collaboration between the attendants, so for the Scavenger Hunt, just make sure to clarify who wrote what. Ideally go for two half-articles, I suppose ?

Unfortunately no, I think that is just a random picture associated with the category, hah.

Definitely neutral, since these are encylopedia articles. But as I mentioned above, there could be a section at the end of the article where people are directly cited with their views on that specific tournament, what they liked, what they would have wanted to see instead, etc.
*Ginga*

Oh yo, so I answered this question but that was not actually part of the challenges hah. However, since tournament reports are always relevant (the good ones, at least), I added it to the list now.
ashton pinto
I have a question regarding this
Get four (new) of your referrals to Like the official WBO Facebook Page
I have a few new (joined before the scavenger hunt) referrals who probably didnot 'like' the WBO FB page. What if i ask them to like it ?

Will that be considered valid ?


EDIT:
Completed 3 goals
- Share a Beywiki article (requires proof such as a screenshot) (1 Point)
- Share a BeyChannel video (requires proof such as screenshot) (1 Point)
- Take an artistic photograph of a Beyblade and share it on social media with a link to the World Beyblade Organization. (2 Points)
