This thread is for talking about the new Pioneer Title.

If you look at your public profile page (by clicking on your name) it shows a scavenger hunt.  Once you've completed that you get a shiny new title.

It was put in, sort of, a couple of months ago.  But we now think that it is all set up correctly.   And this thread will be expanded to talk in detail about what this is.  

Basically, it is tied to the scavenger hunt.   Once you complete the scavenger hunt, your account will automatically be upgraded to "pioneer".

Looking at your profile, I think you're really close to finishing the scavenger hunt.

OK, so I looked at my scavenger hunt, and clearly I'm not starting enough threads! Off to make up questions. ;-)

In the Pioneer hunt, what are the 3 media? And specifically how must they be attached?

I'm not entirely sure on this, but I would try inserting three images to a post, three videos, or a combination thereof. I'm quite confused on how all the scavenger hunts work, as well. It's quite a new thing, for me, too.

I can't get the three media in one post to work either.

I've tried doing it in different combinations and it still hasn't worked.

I may be overlooking something though.

Posting those three images just increased my score from 144 to 145 posts with 3 media.    

I evidently post a crazy amount of images!

The kicker for me is; of all the images I post, I have always limited myself to only two so I left myself out of the running!

What the fanny pack. If a person is going to post three photos, they might as well be ones people want to see...or at leat the guys on here (poor Katie) :-)

Well all that and it still did not work. All I have is "Insert 3 Media into a post" and that last post did not work. It must require a link, video and photo?

Everyone, are you trying to add the pictures as an attachment?  I have found that doesn't work that way.  

When you go to "reply" at the top above where you would type your message, look for "img"  find a picture in a post or on the internet the click on the picture.

In the pull down menu look for "Copy image location" the paste that into the link you get when you click on "img".

I hope that will help if not let us know so we can help.

Okay, that explains it because my post on Gold had a link, youtube and a picture, but the latter was an attachment picture. Thanks for the help.

It still did not work. I put my Gold Thread in as an image, YouTube and link and still was not given credit for a post with three media. :-(

Travis, when I saw your gold thread, I thought "he need one more picture"
now I see you added a picture though you still did not get credit.

They all need to be posted when you first do the post.  I don't think edit will give you credit.

So I was posting on the Scavenger Test Post to see if I could fill that last requirement, to no avail. What am I doing wrong?

Weeeeeeird, you'd think those would have worked.





I just posted the exact same videos as Steve.

I'm almost wondering if there's something wrong with the scavenger hunt where only moderator's 3-media posts count. Maybe Devaka knows why this isn't working?

I was only lacking a bookmark. I had not seen the bookmark button before. So I bookmarked a thread where I plan to post in the future and the bot sent me a nice email.

I completed it last year, but just received the bot email, so it means that this automatisation stuff is now working!

They say that the more you wait a reward, the more it is motivating for next time.... lol so well done!

Gir bot yesterday wrote to me and told me

I have also upgraded your system wide title to "pioneer"



…however, the system hasn't gotten the memo and says I'm a pollinator. Come to speak of it, I don't really notice anyone who's titled "pioneer" at the moment.

Is gir messin wit me? Has pioneerdom been abolished? Just wondering.

Pioneer is still alive. It is a step below pollinator so that is probably why no title change in your case. Nobody seems to know what or how girbot thinks but I believe pioneer is still in a transition stage. Might I suggest continuing to progress through the scavenger hunts? Girbot does like that.

Who knows what's going on, I became a pollinator last week I think and just received notification about this Pioneer thing.

Still exploring it all and looking forward to continuing my journey as a fledgling permie :)

Hi Rob. You're doing great!

I'm not 100% positive but I think girbot has a bug with making the pioneer rank visible. I suggest working on your pioneer scavenger hunt by adding some youtube videos to a few posts. That MIGHT be what it needs.
