    Welcome to Narutoforums Summer Event! :blobguitar Even if it is Winter where you live. :blobkrelax


    In this event we are going to place you in the Summer Usergroup. This usergroup has golden font and a sunny icon. Check @Rep Bot and if you cannot see the difference, to Light or Dark Skin Opt-in so CSS is enabled.

    You can also check it here:

    Spoiler:


    Thanks to @Jackk and @Naruto

    Of course, you will have to complete some tasks to be placed in the Summer Usergroup until August 10 (Sunday). The sooner you finish the tasks, earlier you are placed in that usergroup. Also, remember to keep all your completed tasks PG-13.


    TASKS

    Edit your avatar adding summer elements (sunglasses, a sun, etc) or upload a new Summer themed avatar. You do not need to wear it all the time this event is happening, but it is appreciated.

    Create a phrase about Summer or take captions (comics/manga/movie/ads) with phrases about Summer.

    Post a music video about Summer.

    Take or find a picture of a drink: it can be any drink, but you have to describe its ingredients pretending it is another drink. You also need to name it Summer related.

    POST THE COMPLETED TASKS in this thread. DO NOT forget to tag me when completing one of the tasks and if I rated it as winner that means the related task was accepted.


    "I wish to be in the Summer Usergroup for more days. Is that possible?"


    IT IS! You have until August 10 at 9pm UTC.
    You can participate in the Sunny Icon Hunt, a side quest.

    We placed 31 Sunny Icons in posts from July 2018 - July 2019. They will have this icon:



    They are hidden in the following sections:

    Contest Central/Photo of the Week/Graphic of the Week: 11 icons
    House of Uzumaki: 5 icons
    Akihabara TV Channel (main section only): 5 icons
    Foreign Languages/Translations: 5 icons
    Art Lounge/Art 101: 5 icons

    You will create a thread in called Summer Hunt + [Your Username]. All your findings will be posted there.

    You can cut/paste the quoted post there or copy/paste the direct link.

    Spoiler: Direct Link: Desktop and Mobile

    Desktop viewing: It can be in another place depending of what Skin/Style you are using.


    Mobile: The post number currently does show on mobile if you flip your phone for horizontal/landscape view, but it does not show for vertical/portrait view:

    Vertical:


    Horizontal:





    Do not reveal where you found icons. We are going to give tips to find at least 10 icons, so check thread marks.

    Also, the posts with Sunny Icons do not have any editing message.

    PRIZES

    05 - 10 icons = + 1 week in Summer Usergroup.
    11 - 20 icons = + 1 week in Summer Usergroup + 50k rep.
    21 - 30 icons = + 1 week in Summer Usergroup + 50k rep + 5 CC points.
    31 icons (only the first member to find all them) = 500k rep

    Top 3 Hunters will get:

    1st place: 12 CC points
    2nd place: 5 CC points
    3rd place: 3 CC points​

    I will definitely adjust the coloring for more golden

    This sounds like a very fun event, celebrating the summer coming to an end.

    I'll create a Google file so we all can follow the completed tasks. @Rinoa is going to be the support for this event. If you need some help, you can tag her too.

    Edit: Remember to posts your completed tasks in this thread. Only the icon hunt is to be posted in the private section Entries & Misc.

    @Majin Lu You don't have the intention to make this a team contest? You don't think it will be a good idea?

    Spoiler: Summer music video

    Video:


    Lyrics:
    Train set and match spied under the blind
    Shiny and contoured the railway winds
    And I've heard the sound from my cousin's bed
    The hiss of the train at the railway head
    Always the summers are slipping away
    A 60 ton angel falls to the earth
    A pile of old metal, a radiant blur
    Scars in the country, the summer and her
    Always the summers are slipping away
    Find me a way for making it stay
    When I hear the engine pass
    I'm kissing you wide
    The hissing subsides
    I'm in luck
    When the evening reaches here
    You're tying me up
    I'm dying of love
    It's OK



    Summer drink and ingredients:

    Spoiler:

    Ocean Breeze Vodka


    Ingredients:

    • 2 slice of limes (can vry depending on what your tastes are)
    • Absolut Vodka (or any vodka of your choice)
    • Sugar
    Spoiler alert: It's literally just water and limes.

    Perfect! If members finish the 4 tasks early, they will be placed in the usergroup asap. Thanks!

    Sorry, I do not. This time I wish members earn the prizes by themselves.

    About the hunt, only hard sections to find the icons are Akibahara and HoU. So 21 icons are easy to find. I didn't add Icons in convo threads.

    Drink:


    Long Island Summer Spiked Tea:

    A Long Island Summer Spiked Tea is a type of alcoholic mixed drink typically made with vodka, tequila, light rum, triple sec, gin, and a splash of cola, which gives the drink the same amber hue as its namesake. A popular version mixes equal parts vodka, gin, rum, triple sec, with 1 1⁄2 parts sour mix and a splash of cola. Lastly, it is decorated with the lemon and straw, after stirring with bar spoon smoothly.

    Most variants use equal parts of the main liquors, but include a smaller amount of triple sec (or other orange-flavored liqueur). Close variants often replace the sour mix with lemon juice, replace the cola with diet cola or actual iced tea, or add white crème de menthe. Most variants do not include any tea.

    I'm going to edit the OP. In the end, it is about having some fun.

    James Bond is just missing the avatar and Rion, Rinoa is placing you in that usergroup asap.
