Okay, let's look at the actual quote from the thread since you find it so very ridiculous:
If no one reaches a certain clue (about halfway through) by the time the event is half over, I will start giving out hints.
For the record, six people have reached that clue. Two on the first day. So I'm sticking to what I said. I never said I would provide hints to people in any other situation, and your accusations are both very rude and very unfounded.
If you find yourself frustrated by the hunt and don't find it fun, then stop doing it. I can even take you off the list of participants if you'd like. Not everyone enjoys every event. It happens. Some are too hard, some aren't in your skill set, some you lose a competition. I'm very comfortable with the amount of people that have gotten to each stage in the hunt and am not willing to change what I have set in the rules for you.
I am calm. I just find it VERY ridiculous that your not going to give out the hints even though you said you would. I understand where your coming from with the whole "I was gunna give out hints but some people already fisihed so now im not", But in all honesty, that excuse is not very plausible nor fair to me or all the others that entered and havent gotten past #1. The terminology I use for that is "indian giving". You say youll provide something, then go back on your word. Im just angered that I wasted 2 full hours that ill never get back trying to find something and getting frustrated. I just want to finish this dumb hunt so I can erase those wasted hours from my memory.
Do it like a democrat would, Why dont you take a poll on the scavenger hunt thread. Maybe its cuz most members are ten year olds that thier not standing up to but Im old enough to know how to stand up for myself. I joined PC to have fun, not get frustrated and waste time.
There's more than the 3 that completed it that have reached the point that I was looking for people to reach. The hunt is meant to be difficult and not meant to be completed by everyone that entered. The people that won aren't 'geniuses', they're just...good at scavenger hunts I guess.
You getting angrier at me won't cause me to break the rules that I've given out to everyone, including other people that have asked for hints, in order to give you a hint.
Well yes obviously they reached that point but none of us have And no one is allowed to give out hints as stated in the OP. The point of this event and all others is to have fun, and when I'm searching a Pokemon forum for 2 hours getting frustrated cuz I know the answer yet I'm apparently wrong with every search I try, thats NOT fun. Why don't you ask on the thread who needs a hint, ill bet every person that signed up beside the 3 geniuses will say they need one. You says it's unfair but guess how the people that Havent finished and never will finish feel.....
The OP says I'll give out hints if no one reaches a certain point. And 3 people have finished, so obviously they've all reached that certain point. I'm sorry you can't figure out where to go, but it would be really unfair to the people that figured out the hints on their own for me to give everyone else hints.
I see retro bug already asked about the hints.....But its only 3 people that are done....the majority of us have no clue! And I can see many other members have checked the same profile pages as me cuz I can see who visited that page. I also would like to point out in the OP of that thread it says youll give out hints if were stuck. And only 3 finished out of the 10+ people that joined the scavenger hunt, so technically the majority of us are stuck and would very much like a hint. I know I cant be the only one thats PMed you about a hint and never got a resonse.
