PostPosted: Thu Jul 4, '13, 8:51 am 
The time has come once again for our mid-year celebration at here Fringes, Flag Hunt! In our fourth 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.

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 Saturday, July 13th Monday, July 15th. 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 as the event progresses.

Happy hunting and have a great weekend! :D

The first batch of clues has now been posted! Check the first post for these hints.

Also, since there was some difficulty that caused a delay in getting the clues up this time, I've decided to extend the hunt through the weekend. The new end time is 12 AM Eastern Time on Monday, July 15th.

The Flag Hunt for 2013 has officially ended and the first post of this topic has been updated with a list of results. Check that to see the participants and how many flags they found. For the first time in one of these hunt events, a majority of the participants successfully located all 30 icons. A big congratulations goes out to Atlinsmere, Flames of Yagami, Silver_Surfer1, Tanith, Wing Eye, Wolf Bird, doncair99, and tilinelson2 for this accomplishment!

That was a pretty good round of flag hunting, if I say so myself. For the whole community.
