I realized I have a lot of gaps in my examples post at the beginning of this thread. It doesn't make sense to offer something (and charge for it) if people don't know what they're going to get. So I'm giving away a free Sketch avatar and a free Standard avatar, just to get an example up on the page.

In order to "win" a free avatar, you must answer a question.


Rules
(Breaking any of the rules will result in disqualification, and does not necessarily mean that your answer was wrong, but your entry(ies) will be ignored and you will not be allowed to retry.):

  • You cannot win both.
    • You may answer the questions for both, but if you post both correct answers, the one appearing first will be accepted and the other will be ignored and left open for another poster.
    • If a poster answers both questions correctly, but someone else beat them to the first answer, the remaining answer will be accepted.

  • You may only answer a given question one time, and with one post.
    • You can make a separate post for each of the two answers, or you can include both answers in a single post (as long as they are labeled accordingly).
    • You cannot edit your post for any reason. Such reasons include (but are not limited to) fixing typos, adjusting text formatting, or wanting to change your answer due to second thoughts. I recommend that you use the Preview button before posting, just to be safe.
    • You cannot make a separate post to "Cancel" your previous attempt at a question (For example, you cannot say "Forget my earlier post, my real answer is [this]").

  • I will not award somebody with a prize because they point out some technicality or loophole. I can refuse service/disqualify someone if I feel it's warranted.
  • Entries must be posted in this thread.
  • Entries must follow the correct format (which will be explained later).
  • Do not post "ordering" information with your entry ("My pirate is male with black ponytail" etc). That will be taken care of after someone wins.
  • I will not post to tell people they are wrong. I will post to inform people when the right answer has been found for a given question, but it probably won't be announced right away.
  • I will not just award the avatar(s) to whoever gets "the closest", even in the event that people stop entering.
  • I am not going to change the answers partway through in order to throw people off. This isn't Battleship.


Format:

Question 1 must be answered in the following format:

Question 1: [color=????]answer[endcolor]
where the word "answer" is replaced by your actual answer, and where ???? is replaced with my favorite color. (and "endcolor" is replaced with "/color")

If you believe that "deep pink" is my favorite color, and that the answer is two, your entry should read:

Question 1: two
or possibly
Question 1: 2

Question 2 must be answered in the following format:

Question 2: [color=????]answer[endcolor]
where the word "answer" is replaced by your actual answer, and where ???? is replaced with the color of my favorite food. (and "endcolor" is replaced with "/color")


If you believe that my favorite food is blue, and that the answer is two, your entry should read:
Question 2: two
or possibly
Question 2: 2

I believe that covers it.



Question 1: How many in-game pets do I own as of this writing?
Prize: free Sketch avatar

Hints:
  • This is regarding only the pets of Pogo on Midnight (none of my alts).
  • I have never "trashed" a pet.
  • I think pets are a huge waste of PoE.
  • I was given a gold kitten.
  • Any pet(s) I own is/are currently placed in a scene(s).
  • Familiars, animal-based furniture, and other pirates who I might consider to be pets in a broader sense do not count towards this total.

    Question 2: Solve for x
    x = 2*(a+b)
    where a = (The number of ship deeds I currently hold)
    and b = (the number of years I spent in college)

    Prize: free Standard avatar

    Hints:
  • This is regarding only the ships of Pogo on Midnight (none of my alts).
  • I graduated from college
  • The correct answer will be an even number


    I'm not making an Events thread for this because it's related directly to my avatar thread and probably isn't worth a new thread, seeing as the answers will probably be guessed in a day or two.

    Nobody has posted the correct combination of colors and numbers yet; I just wanted to point out that Fizz is the only person who has posted in the correct format.

    Dang.. Good luck to everyone else that gives this a shot.

    *generally reads rules carefully before posting and figured I caught something nobody else had that had already posted an answer*

    Bump to point out that I don't think my hearties and crewmates actually know the answers (despite SJ's post stating that she does :condescendingwinkyemoticon:), so you're not going to be able to count on them for help. That's not to say that they can't just guess an answer and be right, that's totally possible. But you can do that yourself.

    However, they're also allowed to lie to you if you ask them for answers (although it's only lying if they actually know the answer). :)


    Who knows? Maybe I'll actually have examples up before the 'contest' ends... I'll certainly still give out the freebies if that happens, but it will have defeated its own purpose...



    Oh also, this technically isn't a hint, but something to keep in mind to make life easier for those around me:

    It's true that my pet(s) is/are all placed in scenes, but it's/they're all in scene(s) within one/several residences I own. Which means you won't be able to find it/them by knocking on doors to the homes of my hearties or crewmates, even if I'm a roommate there.
