I'm really loving this neat little thing, it's pretty fun and distracting. Member's Lounge's music change is brilliant, makes going through the large amount of topic pages there a bit more bearable :v:

Wonderful job indeed, but if there was just way to turn the music off... Not that it makes me headache after hearing it for over 30 minutes or anything...

I found a target post! Radar's going crazy but I'm not seeing anything, what gives?

...d-do I need to find the Shovel Claw first? :psyduck:

Turn Member's Lounge into Aquatic Mine, because I swear that's what it really is.

You know, when I suggested you guys do this for Halloween in the IRC a while back, I didn't expect that you could actually do it. :psyduck:

Well, I've been playing for about an hour now and I still can't figure out how to actually get at the Emeralds. Even inspecting the post element with Chrome's tool didn't turn up anything useful.

Well, I thought it was cool, until I spent 5 minutes in General Sonic Discussion with the radar never progressing past blue no matter where I moved the mouse.

I completed the game...and got an F rank. :v:/> FFFFFFFFFFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU~

Admittedly I started the thing earlier than I should have and didn't play it for at least 10 minutes, and I admittedly jumped the gun way too much with the first one (a full five minutes spent looking way too far from the goal).

Still the entire thing took 15-20 minutes of searching the forums, though the tally ranked it as 32 min.)

I won't lie, when the radar turns green, the game gets fun. BRB, playing it again for better score.

EDIT: Completed it in roughly 1/6 of the original time (5 mins. 30 sec.)...got a C rank. Acceptable.

My second emerald was in page 41 of General Sonic Discussion. Way to screw me, RNG.

It took me nearly ten minutes and got me a D Rank, but a large chunk of that was also spent reading the forums normally; I didn't really start taking it seriously until about 4 minutes in when I stumbled into my first emerald by accident.

edit: Second run - 3:26:53, B Rank. I figured out a pro strategy about halfway through this run: Start from the last page of a forum and go backwards. You can save valuable time on mouse movement this way, as only the next page buttons ever move significantly, not the previous page buttons.

edit again: Third run - Sub 3 minutes, B Rank. I was well on my way to a sub 3 minute run, and then I got one on page eighty-something of Members Lounge. The ranking requirements really ought to vary based on what forums the emeralds appear in, because some are much harder than others.

Well, finally something fun on Halloween :v: or April Fools

Is there as S rank? I managed to get all emeralds in less than 1:30, only one above 30 seconds, and it was still an A rank...

Edit: the curse of the /> strikes again.

Yay A Rank! I really love this game! Was lucky to get around 2.30 min of all the emeralds, because they spawned in short topics and pages :D
