    In September 2011, MacRumors user renewed created the first MacRumors Scavenger Hunt. It was very successful but ended on December 31st of 2011. In January 2012, MacRumors user wrinkster22 created the second MacRumors Scavenger Hunt. It was also very successful but ended on April 1st of 2012.

    It's rather simple. I will start of by giving you a task, for example (not the actual challenge):

    Take a picture of a piece of paper next to a Mac.

    Whoever completes this and posts it first is the next one in charge. You will give a task to do that involves taking a picture. The person will then hold up a sign/piece of paper with the date and MacRumors on it so that we know it was taken and not "googled".

    For each task completed you get 1 point.


    These are the rules:

    1) No photoshop.

    2) Please only post pictures of YOU holding the sign up this way you will actually have to go out and take a picture if necessary.

    3) No duplicates - let's be creative.

    4) If you are the poster who meets the picture challenge, please put your next request in a BOLD and BIGGER font so it's easy to find.

    5) If the challenge isn't met within 3 days the person who put the challenge up then has 12 hours to complete the challenge themselves. If they cannot complete their own challenge, they are docked one point and then pick a new challenge. If the challenger does not respond with a new challenge within 24 hours or 48 hours on the weekend the previous challenger picks the new challenge. If needed, the cycle will repeat.

    6) No challenge is to be made that involves any of the following:

    * illegal activities (this includes, but is not limited to: guns, drugs, street racing, thievery, and sexual activities involving minors)
    * currency (the participants of this game will not be limited to those with immediate access to large amounts of funds)
    * destruction of one's own property or any piece of public property
    * nudity

    7) You do not need to be in the photo.

    8) There is no need to sign up- you just start playing.

    We will play until July 1st 2012. Whomever has the most points at that time will be the MacRumors Scavenger Hunt Third Edition Champion!

    It ends then so we can have 3-4 games a year.

    If you win a task then simply put your point count in your signature. At the end we will tally it up (hopefully we can keep a running tally) and declare 1st, 2nd and 3rd place!

    The winners of the last MacRumors Scavenger Hunt were:

    1. Spencie with 13 points
    2. wonderspark with 12 points
    3. Goftrey with 10 points

    Congratulations you three!

    First challenge:

    Post a screenshot that is of Forum Spy, and within the threads included there must be at least 5 words circled that together make an actual sentence (these words have to be from at least 3 different threads). MR info required (digital or analog).


    Bad example:

    Also approved.

    And as I was in the last thread, I'll keep a tally on the points & post an update every 3 pages or so.

    Yep, I thought this was an international game? Us in the UK or anywhere other than the states are stuffed on this one.

    Approved from me, but I don't know if it can be approved as you can't actually see any of the letters.
