CHALLENGE 19 
ENDURANCE / SCAVENGER HUNT CHALLENGE

Challenge: Starting from right now until 3 PM EST (about two hours only) in the dedicated post in your team community - comment as many times as you can (commenting with at least two words or at least one image). Every new comment thread in your community MUST have a comment in reply to it (NOT every comment period, but any time someone leaves a brand new comment to the post - i.e. "reply to post" not "reply to a comment"). look at this link if you are confused!! Any unresponded to threads will count for -20 comments (meaning if you accidentally leave one thread unresponded to, I will subtract 20 comments off your total. If you have 2, I will subtract 40, and so on and so forth).
Additionally, each team has a Google Docs spreadsheet in which they must supply a bunch of items from a Scavenger Hunt list! For every wrong or missing item, you receive - 20 comments.

Points: Since there is such a disparity in team #'s, I am making this an even playing field - Team Trek has 29 members, which is 26% more than Team Fringe, 12% more than Team Oceanic, and 21% more than Team Rambaldi - thus Team Trek will handicap the other teams those percentages of their total comments to be added on at the end (so if Trek ends with 100 comments, Fringe gets +26, Oceanic +12, Rambaldi +21). This should make it more fair. And since I am doing it this way, the prize is a flat amount: First Place gets +4 points, Second Place gets + 2 points, Third Place gets + 1 point, Fourth Place gets + .5 points.

Due: You have until 3 PM EST (see how much time you have left)

the scavenger hunt is timed too? or just has to be finished in those 2 hours?
Rebecca: LOST // You'll never die aloneoutoftime on December 9th, 2012 05:54 pm (UTC)
well if it's not finished in 2 hours, you get -20 for each one missed.

Do we only need one icon for each show/movie or 5 (one for each labeled column)?
Rebecca: TW // Isaacoutoftime on December 9th, 2012 05:59 pm (UTC)
If it says "A" it's just 1 - but if it specifies a number (like 4 Katy Perry, 5 Buffy) then it's that number. The columns are just there because some things require five columns :)

Okay, thanks! I'm was probably overthinking it. it says "icons" and I wasn't sure if the plural was just because it's a list with multiple fandoms or because we need multiple icons for each fandom.
Rebecca: TVD // One Last Dayoutoftime on December 9th, 2012 06:04 pm (UTC)
Well with the icons you need 5 from each fandom :) So 5 Buffy, 5 Bones, etc., etc.

Oh, I see where it says that, duh. Thanks!

Rebecca: TB // Soft Sookieoutoftime on December 9th, 2012 06:11 pm (UTC)
Yes, and yes!

I should list all of the scenarios I came up with between last night and this morning while waiting lol
Rebecca: TB // Ericoutoftime on December 9th, 2012 11:53 pm (UTC)
Haha, I saw some of them! How the heck would I ever have kept track of no commenting back to back? :P

And I know it's a crazy time of the year (for me as well!) so I would never give you guys a 24 hour one - I was going to make it 3 hours and even at that I felt bad.

IDK MAN, so long as you could get your cackle on I'm sure you'd find a way!

My - well my entire team's - BIGGEST worry was another 2 word fic endurance challenge.

Then we thought maybe it was a trivia/scavenger hunt (bonus points to Blue for suspecting this).

Then I thought since you were starting at noon and it was the last one maybe you would run it from noon to midnight and that was your version of "being nice" and you could say "Well it was only 12 hours instead of 24!"

Someone thought maybe it'd be one of those endurance challenges where you start off with an image and then a person has to edit it then a new person edits it and so on and so forth.

Then mine just got cracky as in, you were going to make us type random letters and every time someone used a vowel we'd get -20 points.

Or you'd have us spam pictures of animals.

But in the end, even if it was for 12 hours, we were just hoping it was regular ol' spam over fic writing lol. SO YAY FOR THAT! Especially since I wasn't even around most of the time, phew.

There are a lot of Mount Franklins out there... which one are we looking for?
Rebecca: CT // Jules & Ellieoutoftime on December 9th, 2012 06:37 pm (UTC)
Since I wasn't clear, you can give me any and just link me to where you found it so I can see you had a different one in mind.

Is there a word count minimum for the posts? I assume there is but it's not mentioned.
Rebecca: CT // Sad Laurieoutoftime on December 9th, 2012 06:52 pm (UTC)
As long as each comment is 2 words, that's fine.
