In celebration of both Canada Day and the US' Independence Day, a community event called Flag Hunt will be held this weekend. During Flag Hunt, thirty Phantasy Star themed flag icons will be hidden in various locales around the site. Find them if you can!

Flag Hunt will begin at about 12 AM GMT Saturday, July 3 and end at 12 AM GMT Tuesday, July 6. That's 8 PM US Eastern time, Friday to Monday. The hidden flags will appear only during this time window. The start time may be delayed slightly, as I have to turn the flags on manually at the appointed time.

Flag Hunt will work a little differently than the Easter Egg Hunt we had back in April. This time around, instead of allowing only the first person to find a flag to claim it, I'm going to allow everyone to claim every flag. If you find a flag, click it to claim it. When you claim a flag, you will unlock a matching Achievement that will appear in your member profile. There is a separate Achievement for each flag. Flags you have claimed will also disappear from your view of the site.

Since everyone is able to claim each flag this time, please don't share the locations of the flags you find until Flag Hunt is over. Let everyone search for them and earn the Achievements independently. If I have reason to suspect that someone has cheated their way into finding the flags, they may be disqualified from this and future community events. You are welcome to boast when you find a flag of course, just don't say where you found it. ;)

Some of the flags will be easy to find, while others may appear in parts of the site you've never visited before now. They could be anywhere! Keep your eyes peeled!

Happy hunting and have a good holiday weekend! :D

The Flag Hunt has ended! Thanks to everyone that participated! I hope you all had fun! :)

MUCH better set-up for this than the Easter Egg Hunt, Thoul. I didn't like how once an egg was found, that was it, as it didn't allow many people to participate if they couldn't be on the site during the Egg Hunt. As I have to work a special event Saturday and I'll be gone much of the day, I'll be able to participate without worry of every flag already being gone!

Yes, I think this will be a lot better for everyone. The Easter Egg Hunt was a very last minute thing. I had much more preparation time for this event, so I was able to take details like busy schedules into consideration. There may still be a few bumps to smooth out, but I hope everyone will enjoy themselves in this event. If all goes well, we may even do it again at the next major holiday. :)

Lies! It's only the second! >.>

But I guess it is the 3rd for Lucas.

Reread the first post. ;) I said it would start at 12 AM GMT Saturday. ;)

Ah, well I never did pay attention to timezones. >.>
