Greetings. Welcome to the home of celebration - the Mondo Ghost Dome. Please, bear with us while we prepare the festivities for the chosen one. We will be giving out spiffy emblems and trophies to those who show the most knowledge in various departments. The first challenge is a short quiz to test your knowledge of this website, and parts of SMW hacking.

RULES:
1. Please send your answers to me in a private message format no later than March 3rd, 2010, 11:59 PM EST. It can be in a TXT file, or directly in the PM.
2. The person (or people) who score the highest on the quiz will win an emblem of this dome.
3. You may help each other if you wish, but do remember that this is a free-for-all. Helping others could hinder you.

Here are the questions:




1. SMW Central had two founders. Determine the hexadecimal product of their user IDs.
2. On January 1st, 2008, a replacement site entitled "Nightfall" was put up. Which two colors were used to represent Nightfall's famous image?
3. Name the former global moderator who had less than 90 posts.
4. Name the newest administrator.
5. In late 2007, Kieran posted a very cheerful song which soon became very popular among the userbase. What was it?
6. Who was the first person to discover the Valley Fortress after it was constructed by S.N.N.?
7. Name the first network that SMWC's IRC was located on.
8. Which game do the smilies on SMWC come from?

11. Which of Smallhacker's body parts was used on Megadmin?
12. Who was the first user to reach 5000 posts?
13. What is currently the newest version of Lunar Magic?
14. Which event brought the Doomsday site scheme into existence?
15. Which status was Mario in (small, large, fire, cape) on the 2009 holiday banner?




Best of luck.
I'm assuming that the fact that this thread is unlocked implies we are allowed to post here...

About #1. Are we supposed to take decimal id times decimal id and then convert to hex, or take the hexadecimal representation of their IDs? (i.e if the id was 400, you would multiply by hex 400)

This just seems like a point of the quiz that could use clarification.

--------------------
Now with extra girl and extra hacker
Convert everything to hex. The initial IDs and the final answer should all be in hex.
Question: Do have to answer every question? Or do we just answer ones we know and get the unanswered ones wrong...
I have a question, are there going to be emblems and trophies based on what place that you come in?

Edit: never mind.



Do we have to participate in all of the challenges to get any sort of reward? I don't really feel like hunting for all this info.

You can answer as many as you want, and leave as many as you want blank.

Depends on how generous I'm feeling at the end of the MGD events. Obviously, the winners will get special trophies, but people who simply participated in any of the events might get something as well.
Is it possible to change our answers after we have submitted them? I have obviously realized that I misread the first question, and I would very much enjoy possessing the ability to change said answer.

Funny thing is I did the exact same thing and sent a fix-up PM to SNN about 5 minutes after. I had a stupid moment where I thought product was addition where it's actually multiplication.

He didn't send a "yeah it's okay" PM though.

...I did the exact same thing, Blu...

I feel better about my mistake, now that I know I'm not the only one who made it. :D


<Adam> I feel like smwc is a prostitute now, because we put up a porn ad for money

Remember, people! Telepathy is a wooonderful magic!
Geez people, learn to double check your answers. Isn't that something basic you learn at school?

Oh what, I didn't even know what product meant. Vocabulary fail.

Great that's one definite wrong answer. >_>


--------------------
My blog. I could post stuff now and then
The amount of people who failed at question 1 is extremely amusing for some reason.
I've gotten about 30 submissions, and like, 4 people got the first one right. It's quite lol.

Yes, I've been accepting answer changes.
I think I got question 1 right, but I realized I made a mistake in the last one literally one second after I sent the PM. :/

Funny, I thought I'd be the only one being dumb enough to think of addition instead of multiplication. XD

But I bet my fixed answer for #1 is still wrong, haha.
Well I guess this is punishment for not taking math this year.
So, SNN, on question 1, do we have to list the user IDs for question 1 along with their product? I didn't list them in hex, so...I'm just wondering if not doing that will make me automatically lose the question.

I think i did the same, Riolu.
I just sent the product without the IDs.

--------------------
they say... i forgot
I still think there's a small discrepancy with the first problem.

Let's say that the two people are are this guy and this guy. Is the answer 0x600 (0x30*0x20), or is it 0x258(30*20)? I ask this only because both the answers could be derived from your explanation of the problem.
