    Default Freezing Saddles 2021 - Daily Photo Scavenger Hunt

    EDIT 3/23/21 - FINAL RESULTS POST: http://bikearlingtonforum.com/showth...265#post210265
    EDIT 3/17/21 - FINAL WEEK POST HERE: http://bikearlingtonforum.com/showth...861#post209861

    I love taking photos, and having a goal usually ups the fun factor, so I'm doing a daily photo scavenger hunt.

    Every night, I'll post something you have to take a picture of the next day (along with the date). I'll try my best to post before midnight.

    It might be an object (a stop sign), a theme (something blue), specific (e.g., a bike laying on the ground), vague (e.g., confusion), a mish-mash of those, or none of those.

    Rules:
    1. Obvs, you should be a participant in Freezing Saddles '21
    2. It has to be on a bike ride on the day it was requested
    3. It has to be posted on the day for which it was requested, i.e., 12:01 AM EST to 11:59 PM EST for the day it was requested. Sorry, I won't count ones that aren't posted for the day it was requested. That's part of the challenge
    4. The reason I say "for the day it is requested" is because I might do requests a few days ahead of time, but don't take and/or post the pic until that day comes.
    5. It has to be posted here on the forum in this thread
    6. There should be text either in the title or in the post with the date and the found object/theme. Another option is to "Reply With Quote" the post with the request, i.e., simply click that button on the bottom right of my request so it is quoted above your picture
    7. Description, short backstory or location are optional (but nice). That said, if your pic is abstract or not obviously relatable to my request, please explain (e.g., I ask for "happiness", and you post a pic of a tennis ball you found on a ride, please explain how that tennis ball = happiness)
    8. It has to be a picture you took, so if you're in it, it either has to be a selfie or done with a self-timer
    9. Only one pic/day. Please don't pad by adding more than one pic/day
    10. It has to be a picture, not a video
    11. Let's stick to things you find out there during your ride, and not things that you bring or make yourself (unless otherwise specified). Example 1: if I say find "2021", don't scratch it into dirt. Example 2: if I say find a flower, don't bring a flower with you on your ride and take a pic of that. This kinda takes the fun out of looking for things, which is the whole point. (Rule added on 1/2/21)
    12. Unless specified otherwise, your bike does not have to be in the photo. (Rule amended on 1/4/21)
    13. Found item needs to be clear and discernible (or legible if text) in the picture. If you are using Tapatalk and are having trouble posting pics that are large enough, let us know and I/we can try to help you with it. (Rule added on 1/3/21)
    14. Filters are OK, but no obvious/blatant photoshopping... not that I know anything about such things

    Scoring: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets...it?usp=sharing
    1. If you follow all the rules above, it's 1 point/picture. I'll like your pic if I have added the point to the tally sheet.
    2. If I feel like you haven't met all the rules, I'll give you .25 points for the effort (Added on 1/11/21)
    3. I'll keep a tally with your forum name. I may reach out to you via the forum's messaging, or ask you to reach out to me in a post in this thread.
    4. EDIT ON 3/17/21: THIS WILL NOT HAPPEN ANYMORE -> At the end of FS, every like in each of your pic posts = +1 point. I'll add these up at the end
      So for example, your pic has met all the conditions at the top, and has 3 likes. That will add 4 points (1 for the pic +3 for the likes) to your pot.


    Notes:
    1. Prizes TBD
    2. Contest starts 1/1/21 and goes until the last day of FS '21
    3. Some of these will be hard. Fret not, some will be easy, so skip those days that are too difficult
    4. Don't ever ever ever ever do anything that can put you in danger or will result in hurting yourself. I promise I won't ask for any pics of you riding on the Beltway
    5. I might post pics, but mine don't count in the contest

    Here's an example of a good entry because:
    1. It was posted on the day for the day it was requested
    2. It states the date and the found item in text
    3. It has the picture in the thread. Unfortunately, posting just a link to another place (like Instagram, Flickr, etc.) without the picture is too hard to track. You can link to the pic somewhere else, but please include the pic in this thread for it to count.

    The description and location (in green) are optional, but nice.

    The easiest way to post with your pic is to "Reply With Quote" directly to my request for the day, that way my request is encapsulated in your response.

    I'd count it However, if I said find a sign that had "S", "T", "O", "P" in it, I'd only count it if it said POTS, POST, and... STOP

    So the pre-FS2021 Daily Photo Scavenger Hunt for 12/22/2020 coffee shop would be something like this?

    I knew you’d have a good example!

    Consularrider, this was close, but you forgot to put the date and the found item at the top. I'll need that for my sanity I'm also updating the rules a little so that you can just quote my post where I am asking for the item so that it appears at the top.

    Default Day 1: 1/1

    1/1/21 - During your ride, take a pic of the number "2021" on 1/1 and post in this thread before the end of that day. Caveat: can't be handwritten. Happy hunting!
