This is fun. I wish it would stick around permanently.

...I wish more sites would do this kind of thing...

I lost it when the music changed in the Member's Lounge (which is incidentally where most of my Emerald Shards have been). This just might be the greatest joke yet.

Don't worry, everything Cinossu makes for the site tends to stick around permanently using various codes you can enter in the forums itself.

Anyone else consistently get their emeralds in the trash? Or on their first go? :specialed:

quite frankly that'd be a much more appropriate area to put the music change given the quality of the music.

Is the whole emblem thing gonna stick around once knuckles leaves? I really want to keep track of this stuff for the future :D

@Chimera: I've never gotten a single emerald in the trash. I thought it avoided the trashed posts XP

Nope, I found an emerald in the trash topics once. The RNG seems to like Member's Lounge and General Gaming for me. Which is fine with me, because the music change in the Member's Lounge still hasn't gotten old to me.

Well, assuming that the RNG really does choose three entirely random posts, and the Member's Lounge has more posts than any other subforum, it makes sense that it comes up so often. I barely go a round without it.

My understanding is the RNG is entirely random, but it'll only ever pick posts that you have access to ie Trial Members won't see posts in the Oldbie Lounge.

I know I'm late to the party but as the web developer that I am, I found this pretty cool. Iframes being useful for something finally. I loled when the Hack detection screen came out :v: Some cool effects here and there too.

Late to the party but this is probably one of the most amazing recreations of a game's UI made with HTML that I've ever seen :v:

I just had a bug happen to me. Following the color-coding, it led me to a topic in SCARZ, but it never turned orange, and there was only one page.

Not sure if there were some trashed posts linked to it, but it screwed my strategy up, and ended up just quitting out.

Edit: The bug happened again, in the "I hope Wetflame is dead" topic in SCARZ. Radar wouldn't go past yellow, no matter what page of the 5 I was on.

What do we unlock if we collect 180 emblems? Could there perhaps be a Green Hill skin for Sonic Retro? While lurking is its own reward, and I did unearth a funny trash thread about a guy's relationship problems that loops Reactive Factory emerald hunting, it would be cool if there was something to unlock out of this given all the other cool secret shit Retro has. I felt like linking to it, but then somebody else might be deprived of the same fun I had listening to this.

EDIT: There are some issues with one of Retro's skins that has become obsolete. Maybe this would be a fun way to kill two birds with one stone. A "new" classic skin, oxymoronic as it sounds.

I just got the emerald hunt now but it's not Halloween? And it always stayed blue no matter how many pages of the member lounge I scrolled through. :v:/>

It went up on Halloween, but it's not on a timer or anything. It's been up this entire time.

You have to try literally every page until you find the right one. This can take a while, so the best thing you can do is have a fast internet connection and set the forum to display as many topics per page as possible.

I just got an issue where I hover over all of the forums but the radar remains silent, forcing me to forfeit the current hunt. Is this a mistake, or is it in a hidden forum or some other place?
