The non-Standard Helvetica Challenge

Post by Helvetica Standard on Wed Oct 03, 2012 11:42 pm

As some of you may know, I made some random signatures, so I'll be doing a challenge with them.

Remember the days where you wanted to get a card with some artist, character or sportsman? Ok, this is your chance to try that again! (but virtually).

The rules are simple: in my signature the "Team X" badge changes randomly every time you refresh the page, so the objective is to collect 'em all. There're a total of 41 images, every one of those have a dedicated percentage of chance to appear[1], being the lowest set at 0.01% chance of appearing and the highest at 7%.

Can you get 'em all?

The topics of the images are Anime & Manga, General Gaming, Internet, Movies, Randomness, and PASBR/PlayStation related.

You need to collect them in order to demonstrate that you got them. The hot-linking to the images is forbidden because the link changes once a day to prevent cheaters[2], so you need to save them on your PC (don't worry, the images aren't that heavy being the bigger at 21 KB) and/or upload them to a image host service, then post them back, but be careful which and when you post the images, maybe another member don't have one of your batch. However, you can talk about them if you want. Alternatively, you can put them all in a single image like in a collector's sheet. C;

I'll be informing in this thread when the name rotation is complete every day[3]. With my calculations, this contest can last at least for 1 week.

Prizes!
1st prize will get an inked and colored sketch made by me of any character the winner wants, this isn't limited to PASBR only. Possible side prize will be added.
2nd prize will get an inked sketch made by me of any character the winner wants, this isn't limited to PASBR only. Possible side prize will be added.
3rd place will get a doodle made by me of any character the winner wants, this isn't limited to PASBR only. Possible side prize will be added.

I know that this isn't much prize to win, but I'm trying to give the contestants something in exchange for his participation.

All other topics that weren't specified here will be addressed upon request or by the users and resolved by me (Helvetica Standard) and posted here in the original post.

Anyone in the forum can participate, so don't be shy and give it a try. ^-^[4]

Updates

1)Sample doodle made a while ago, this will not reflect the final prize
Spoiler:

2)To apply you need to post in this thread first.

3) When sending your prove that you got the 41 images, do it by MP so the other users don't get the images.

4) As some of you have notice, the images loop when you are trying to refresh the page, this is intentional to prevent cheating. Some images are locked and the won't show up that way, they will appear at random while browsing the site, and a little of them are plain hard to get.




[1] The ratio was defined at random, no preferences were involved in the choice of the percentages.
[2] Other unannounced measures has been taken to prevent other kind of cheats.
[3] The time of my post update will vary depending on my schedule.
[4] By participating, you claim that all your bases are belong to Helvetica Standard, also that you don't have time to survive, so make your time.

The server took down my service by 1 hour because it hit the limit in a script, the images should work now.

EDIT: Only certain images will show because of that, I'm on school and I can't access to the control panel of my server because it's blocked, I'll return at 7 PM to my house to fix that. You'll be getting like 26 images because of this, because the others are "locked" to prevent cheating with the reload. Let me explain this:

Some images are "locked" to prevent cheating, no matter how many times you hit Reload, you will never get them. They appear at random while browsing.

No, there is no winner yet.

The challenge is in pause for the nest of the day due to some troubles in the fetching of the images. I'm working on that, so please... STAY TUNED!
