    I can't find a single emerald :(

    I hope there is a way to turn this on once Halloween os over, as it's an awesome way to entertain when you're bored

    If this happens, try refreshing the page. The emerald will still be on the same post, but move, as its actual position in the post is randomly generated each time.

    Like all of the previous additions, it will stick around. The method of enabling it may be different, but it'll still be there.

    If you have an emerald in the Members Lounge, 99.9% of the time you aint getting an A rank

    A run I just did had one on goddamn page 78 :argh:

    A run I just did had TWO emeralds in the Member's Lounge.

    I deem the Member's Lounge to be the Mad Space of this forum game.

    Page 79 of Members Lounge Strikes again.
    This game is super addictive. I would like to get at least one A Rank before the Event is over.
    It seems that a few other people have A ranks, so at least I know it's possible. I'd have to be extremely lucky however.

    Had a few A-ranks here, but Member's Lounge makes it very unlikely to happen XD

    This is possibly the best idea for Halloween that I've ever seen. I have a lot fun from playing this! :3
    But yeah, finding Emeralds in Member's Lounge is such a pain.

    Yay I got an A rank. It's so much easier with a mouse than using my laptop's crappy touchpad.

    How does the forum handle signatures turned off? I ask because I have turned them off for me for ages, and I still encountered those 3 cases of missing emeralds.

    Trapped in my own thoughts.
    Two stageplays, a screenplay, and an album

    My best time so far. A Rank, 1:20:45. Not bad at all.

    This is so incredibly clever on so many levels. Seriously, are their website contests for this sort of thing. Something like this should be entered in one.

    So far I've gain a F, B and C rank. EDIT: I just got an A Rank!

    So I found a small bug while using the javascript Cheats.
    Once you get the first two emeralds using the Cheat, use the same method to find the 3rd one, but don't click on it.
    Go to your browser settings and delete your bowser history and cookies.
    Now once you click on the Emerald, a prompt box will come up asking you to log in if you want to do the emerald hunt.
    Click Okay, and log in.
    Then back your browser up to the page where the emerald was located.
    Click on any link that will take you off that page. (I clicked on Someone's name)
    Back up to the page once more.
    The last Emerald should Appear. profit
    Once you click it, you will be scored and graded as if you found them all legit.

    Not very useful unless you just feel like bragging about how you have 99 A Ranks and no F Ranks.

    I just found an emerald inside General Sonic Discussion which isn't too bad until I realized it was inside a 72 page topic...

    Still got a B though :D

    Shockingly, the last two were in the Member's Lounge, but on the 3rd and 1st pages respectively. Still didn't stop me from getting a C.

    Also, is it just me, or do the points accumulate with each run?

    How do you use the javascript cheats, anyway? I'd like to see the hacking result.

    On firefox, right-click, inspect element, then click on console.

    But the cheat isn't so hard to figure out. It should leave a few of you chuckling.

    Of course there are ways around the cheat, but seriously, if you need to cheat to feel good on a forum game that's been made for a bit of fun then there's something wrong. :v:

    All of you complaining about the Member's Lounge had it easy. I had one emerald in there on page 150-something. I knew I shoulda started from the last page and then work my way back. -_-

    Really cool game, though. It's fun. ^.^
