    Yes, it's time for another trivia challenge! 10/17/2010 at 5:00 pm Pacific Time (8 pm Eastern)

    Here are the details: The challenge will go for approximately 1 hour. This contest will send you on a hunt to various parts of BYC, our sister sites, and even some of our sponsors’ websites!

    Winner will win a free 6 month Golden Feather Membership!

    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. Check out some of the previous contests to see the types of questions we may ask.
    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. 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 between each question. Whoever answers first with the correct answer will win the point. Whoever gets the most points, wins the GFM!
    7. Most of all, have fun!
