For now, you get a whole lot of apples for being the first non-pollinator to complete the Pioneer scavenger hunt....and I try to figure out how to get the Pioneer title up and running. And, then, you will be the first ever Pioneer! You're the pioneer of pioneers!

Wonderful! I'd like to thank the Academy...

No, seriously, thanks for all the apples and pie. I am glad everything is running as it should.

I found out that it's the number of POSTS with youtube/vimeo videos that counts, not the amount of videos themselves.

The book review scavenger hunt feature works now, and works for ALL reviews, not just book reviews. (It does not work retroactively, so you have to make three more reviews with the magic words "__ out of 10 acorns") I also accidentally discovered that capitalization matters with this. I accidentally wrote ACORNS once, and it didn't count toward my number of reviews.

Could you explain a little more if you can?

I think I just got credit for the towel you tube.  I have done lots more since getting the first credit. that I have not gotten credit for. I wish I knew the secret.  I thought they had to be in the original post so maybe that is the problem.

So, if I make a post with 5 videos embedded, it only counts toward 1 for the scavenger hunt. If I then "reply" and make another post with a video, that will count for another on my scavenger hunt. It doesn't have to be the first post in a thread.

For example, if someone had ZERO on their video scavenger hunt,

  • They make a thread with a video embedded=1 point
  • they make a reply with three videos embedded in it=3 more points
  • They make another reply with 1 video=1 more point


  • This would make for a total of 5 points for the video scavenger hunt.

    Maybe it is fixed now.  On May 5th I posted this one with two videos.  I only expected to get credit for one video.

    I just posted another video as a test and it worked.  I got credit for the new video.

    As a test I posted another towel YouTube and I received credit for it.  This makes 4/10.

    As a test I posted a new topic with a YouTube, I did not get credit for it so far.  It is still 4/10.

    So the problems seems to be with new topics with videos or at least in my case.

    Is there anything still not working in the scavenger hunt?

    The pioneer title is still not operational. Aside from that, I think everything works.

    I finished mine this morning expecting something exciting like a handshake from Paul. Whether anything automated happens, I still get bragging rights, correct?

    As far as I know, we haven't gotten this thing automated. BUT, you are now our new guinea pig if our busy programmers can get it going. So, while there's no fancy title yet, I CAN and will splatter you with pie and apples!

    Bwahahahahahahaha! I did it!

    Since we don't have the spiffy automated title-dubbing working yet, I was told I could just give the title manually. Since Greg has his scavenger hunt done, he is now our very first Pioneer. All hail Greg!

    If anyone else notices that they have the scavenger hunt done, just tell me. I'll double-check to see if it's finished, and dub thee also with the Shiny Sword of Pioneering!
