PostPosted: Wed Jul 4, '12, 5:28 am 
This has come once again for our mid-year celebration at here Fringes, Flag Hunt! In our third year of this annual event, thirty flag themed icons have once again been hidden throughout the site. All community members are invited to search for the flags during this event! This year we have new Flag icons reflecting the international nature of our membership.

What is Flag Hunt?
The Flag Hunt works like this: a bunch of icons, styled with a combined theme of country flags and Phantasy Star characters, have been scattered around the Fringes of Algo web site for members to find. You can see these icons only while logged in and during the duration of this event. If you should find an icon, you can click on it to claim it. When you claim an icon, you will unlock a matching Achievement that will appear in your member profile. There is a separate Achievement for each icon and each year of the event. Icons you have claimed will also disappear from your view of the site.

What's New This Year?
For the 2012 Flag Hunt, we have all new flag and achievement icons! The old icons have been retired and replaced with a new batch. In previous years, the icons featured flags for the USA and Canada, since both of those countries have holidays around this time of year. To reflect the continuing growth of our international member base, the new icons feature flags from the six countries that brought the most traffic to Fringes last month - USA, Canada, Brazil, Australia, France, and the United Kingdom. There are five icons using each flag, for a total of thirty icons.

Some of the Phantasy Star characters on the old icons have returned, but some have been retired in favor of new selections. In the returning group, some characters have been paired on to a single icon. I'll leave the details of who has and hasn't returned for you to discover on your own!

Rules of Flag Hunt
Please do not share the locations of icons with others. Every member is able to find and claim each icon. Please allow everyone to fully enjoy the event by searching for the icons and earning the Achievements independently. If I have reason to suspect that someone has cheated their way into finding icons, they may be disqualified from this and future community events. You are welcome to boast when you find an icon, of course. Just don't say where you found it.

Some of the icons will be easy to find, while others are well hidden and may be very difficult to locate. They could be anywhere, even in parts of the site you've never visited before now! Keep your eyes peeled!

This year's Flag Hunt has now begun and will continue until 12 AM Eastern Time on Tuesday, July 10th. The icons will be visible on the site only during that time period and only to logged in members. Clues for the icon locations will be posted later in the week as the event progresses.

Happy hunting and have a great weekend! :D

Hmmm, speaking from past experience, it isn't all that hard to find them all, especially since there is almost a week to do it in. And, there have usually been clues given later in the search to help find the icons also. But, ya know, it helps if you can stay awake to search for them though, as I'm now behind in the search because I feel asleep at the computer, lol. :lol: :rofl: :zzz:

Another year, another hunt. But I won't be participating in this one until a few days in, seeing as how I'm still on vacation visiting family. But I may have some time once I get back to Boston!

The first batch of riddle clues has now been posted. Check the first topic for these hints! If you can figure them out, they'll help you find the icons.

For the curious, at this point Wing Eye is in the lead, having already found 25 of the 30 icons! Very impressive. Only two icons have not been located at all so far. One of them is listed in these first clues, so maybe that will change soon.
