In January, we got a spiffy scavenger hunt added to our forum. Writing reviews, making posts, posting pictures and videos, etc, all are things to "check off" on the scavenger hunt. Aaaaaand, those that complete the Scavenger Hunt get the shiny title of "Pioneer." The title is just for fun and to show everyone how awesome you are. (If you're already a Pollinator, you don't get the Pioneer title, though. One title per person!)

Initially, this title was intended to be given out automatically when someone completed the scavenger hunt....but that bit of programming was a bit more complicated that we thought. BUT, I was told I could just give the title manually. So I made it, and it's operational. All you have to do is tell me that you've completed the e scavenger hunt. I'll double-check to see it's finished, and dub thee also with the Shiny Sword of Pioneering!



And, three cheers for Greg Harness, our very first Pioneer...and the one that reminded me to see if I could get this title operational. Thanks, Greg!

Niiiice!! And congrats Greg!

That sure is a shiny sword. Rather nice actually. Is there an equally sparkly, shiny rake of gardening?

Alas, I could not find a shiny rake fit for a Gardener. I did, however, find this shovel. It's not as shiny, but looks like a formidable weapon for smiting spam. I am having it delivered to you now...

<gasp!> For me?!?! I feel honored!

I laughed out loud when I read that and saw the viking guy in the helmet delivering that shovel

I have had a lot of fun completing the scavengers hunts.  I'm stumped on a couple of the new ones though maybe after I have had my new title longer I will be able to figure them out.  Like, I read up on how to embed a video and did what the thread I found said though it did not work. I am looking forward to doing more reviews.

Yes I remember completing it.... and then there was some sort of computer "rock in the way" something that shows up when the tide is low, and was not expected before!

Hi. I prefer being a Pollinator over a Pioneer. I did not do a scavenger hunt on purpose, but it seems I did

There appear to be some kinks were working out in our Pioneer title. Right now, if you look at my title, it has Pioneer AND Master Steward. For some Pollinators didn't get the Pioneer title added, and I don't know if non-pollinators got the title awarded to them, because I only know of one that has completed the scavenger hunt, and I already manually gave him a title.

We're trying to figure out if we want the pioneer title to be in addition to the normal titles, or not. The automation of awarding it seems to have made it in addition...but only for staff. Needless to say, there's some kinks to work out!

Right now, all it means is that you completed the scavenger hunt on your profile. We're not planning on taking away anyone's pollinator/gardener/steward titles to replace them with Pioneer, so no worries there!

The pioneer title thing will be sorted out soon.  

Is the rest of the scavenger hunt stuff working correctly?

 
You can't have everything. Where would you put it?
