    On Sunday, February 6, 2011 at 6 pm PST we will have our Official "BYC Trivia Challenge"!

    1st Place: 6 Month Golden Feather Membership (for you or a friend)

    This contest will send you on a hunt to various parts of BYC and our sister sites!
    A few tips and rules:

    1. Open 2 or 3 windows (or use tabbed browsing if you have it). Keep one window open to the contest and use the other windows to search for your answers. The questions will all be posted right here in post #1. (You will be asked to post links, also known as URLs, as answers to some questions).

    2. Don’t post pictures or custom smilies, and only one or two regular smilies if you really must (we do not want to slow anyone down).

    3. Please number your answers so we can more easily find them and tally the score.

    4. One point for the correct answer – that’s it.

    5. Don’t edit your post once you've answered – that’s it, no more answers. If you change your mind you can post again. Edited posts will not count.

    6. One question will be posted at a time with three minutes in between each posted question. Whoever answers first with the correct answer will win the point. Whoever wins the most points WINS the prize!!

    7. Have FUN.... and good luck! ^_^

    Oh, and please note: We're going to try to do these on the first Sunday of every month! So, mark your calendars!

    I'll try if I can. I think, however, that it'd be more like 8:00 for me.
