Welcome to the 2017 YCM Easter Egg Hunt.
 
Objective
 
There are 40 eggs for you to find.

24 of them are easy, 16 are challenge.

 

Challenge eggs do not have their picture shown, and the hints are either more vague or require you to do computations.

Some of them WILL require that you solve academic problems of varying degrees that incorporate Pop Culture and other things.

 

Deadline

 

May 3rd, 2017 @ 11:59 pm HST

 

I will not end this event early if someone finds all the eggs; also, results will be announced a few days later.
 
Rulebook

1. Once you see this thread, the games have begun.

2. When you find the location of an egg, PM me with your findings (either with the name of the thread you found it in, or the member profile that it's in).

Use that same PM to notify me of future finds, so it is easier for you and I to keep track of your progress.

3. Be warned that some of the Easter eggs from 2014-2016 may not have been removed. Do NOT get them confused with the current eggs; 

4. Eggs will always be in the first post in a thread and on the 'About Me' page of a members profile. They are not hidden in spoilers nor in member signatures.

 

The standard eggs will usually be hidden within threads on the first few pages and members you generally know by now. Challenge eggs will be hidden on more obscure member profiles or threads buried far back in the archives.

 

Hints are your best friend in figuring out the members/threads, whether they're provided here or implicitly given in other areas. Use them to your advantage in tracking them down.

 

(Some of the eggs are linked to each other, so if you can't find one of them, you cannot access the others)

5. This is an individual event; if you find an egg's location, then keep it to yourself.

6. If an egg is in your profile and you participate, that egg won't count towards your final score unless you manage to find every single other one.

7. Whoever has the most eggs by the end of this event wins, however those of you who find a certain number of them will receive smaller prizes.

8. All standard YCM rules apply.

 

9. You can ask questions about the event, but not further hints about where certain eggs are; you need to figure it out on your own. Anything about solving some of the computational work can be asked (however I will leave some helper info beneath the hints).

Are there an equal number of member/thread eggs?

There should be 20 member / 20 thread eggs; distributed evenly amongst both the normal and challenge eggs. 

 

Regular eggs are 12 / 12

Challenge are 8 / 8

 

(I know I was keeping tabs on them while making the locations)

I checked them before posting this event, so yeah, they should be equally distributed among forums and member accounts. 

 

But general progress report so far from what I got from members is very good.

One question, how many pages does "first few" qualify as? Just making sure I don't need to needlessly check page 7s of a forum.

Out of curiosity, how far has everyone gotten?

 

Trying to figure out how hard I should stress finding them to finish first.

Usually the first 3 or 4 for the standard eggs; challenge eggs may go further than that. I'll let you know right now that two of the challenge eggs are in areas from 2011-2013 but in sections that aren't particularly busy (compared to others).

Also a note that I reviewed the hint for #27, and modified the multiplier after checking the necessary diagrams.

What's this "Cepheus" thing that apparently has to do with the Easter Egg Hunt?

And if it doesn't have anything to do with TCG, could you move it to Misc?

Oh my god suck it up buttercup.

 

Do the event or ignore it ffs. The existence of cepheus doesn't harm you in any way.

 

It can't be moved because IPboard is fucky.

Then just put on there "This is part of the Easter Egg Hunt" or something.

And why is there all of that obnoxious music?

Just leave it alone if you aren't doing the egg hunt.

 

Please don't disclose the contents of the section to members who may not have made their way in, it really spoils the event.

You have no power over me.

Besides, why are you so invested in this sub-forum anyways?

Are you their official spokesperson?

No, I don't have power. I just want the event to run as smoothly as possible, because some people enjoy it. Just because you aren't one of those people doesn't mean they don't matter. It is a matter of mutual respect.

Fine. When the event is over, will the forum be opened up to the public and its contents disclosed?

I obviously can't make any kind of official statement, but knowing what it is, it will probably just disappear again. And trust me, if you knew what was in there, you would really just be let down.

Then why does it matter so much for you to protect it if its contents are so meaningless?

Because it is a part of the easter event, which does matter to me.

 

Now can you please move on? I am trying to find the last egg.
