The semi-annual Neocodex Official Battle of Attrition has begun suddenly and without warning (except for the status update I just posted)!
- I will pick the name of an item. When I post the name of the item, you must locate it by any means necessary and take a picture of it. The only requirement is that the item is real and not something you found online. Post the picture in this thread.
- Don't spoiler tag your submission, re-size if needed. It's faster for recounts. No micropics either. If I can't tell what it is you aren't getting credit.
- You must do this within 24 hours of the timestamp of my post. Submissions past the deadline do not count, even if I have not posted a new challenge.
- For every item, you must either be in the picture with your face present OR you may include a sign pic with your username on it. If you choose to do a sign pic, you must write your username clearly on a piece of paper (or use a self pic) and turn it into an ALL the things meme . This pic must be the same pic used in every picture. If I doubt your pic then you will be disqualified.
- I reserve the right to audit suspicious pics by requiring you to submit additional information about it.
- If you change your username in the middle of the contest and I get confused and you lose points because of it, it is your fault and while I will probably correct it after you point it out to me I will still harbor contempt for you.
- This contest is open to all users. Yes, even my husband.
- I reserve the right to change the rules at any time and make them retroactive if I think that it makes the contest more fair.
- Each successful challenge is worth 1 point. This is not an easter egg.
- Challenge #1 will be open indefinitely through this contest, but others will not. Once a challenge is closed you will not be able to score points for finishing it.
- You can enter this contest by doing challenge #1. No need to PM me. You can enter the contest at any time during the contest by doing challenge #1.
- You will not be eliminated if you fail a challenge, you just won't score points for it.
- The player with the most points at the end of the contest wins.
- In the event of any ties, the player who completed the most challenges consecutively without failing gets the advantage.
- New challenges will not necessarily be posted every 24 hours on the dot. Please don't freak out if it's been 26 hours and there is no new challenge yet.
