Question: When does the group grant a Supergroup status?
Answer: In January
The answer was on the front page, under What the Well Does.
Since we had so many enthusiastic contestants, we needed to be very severe on judging. One point was given per checkpoint link, one point per checkpoint location and one point for answering the trivia question correctly. Failure to comply to the rules ended up in removal of points (like asking questions in plain sight in any dAWishingWell page leading to some hint for other contestants)
. We were looking for the exact answer and not guessing games like "This, this or maybe this". A variation of the answer is accepted if still relevant (for example: TheGalleryOfEve
's big jar of Nutella in the Wishing Jar). And we are aware that someone tried to cheat by asking help from other deviants. They are disqualified and won't have a chance in the raffle.
Here is the list of contestants will full mark!
These deviants will be contacted in private for a second elimination game!
Stay tuned for the raffle later!
We hope you had fun!
