Quick notice; sign ups will close on July 8th. That's a long way away so you have plenty of time to consider your options.

We've got 9 people signed up for this event so far. There's no limit to how many people can join this, and there's no penalty for signing up and not completing all the challenges, so it's your choice!

I know I won't be around the week of August 20th, but if you're alright with that then I'd love to join this very clever competition.

1 week left to sign up! There's some gooduns in the works which I think you'll enjoy. Other than that there's nothing new to announce apart from you should absolutely sign up if you haven't already :bowser:

This is the final day before sign ups close, making the next 24-ish hours your last chance to jump on this wagon.

And that's it! For the several thousand users with an account but not a place on the sign up list, feel free to lament about it later. Also, the first batch is complete, so expect them to arrive on July 10th.

Hints are going out now. Have fun.

E: Oh, and to clarify, you can send in answers individually or all at once, or just a couple at a time. Your choice!

Wow, these things are hard!

How do I upload my own image to use in my posts, anyway?

The best and easiest way is to use a microSD card. Behind your Switch's kickstand is a slot for a microSD card, and if you slot it in when the Switch is off, then proceed to take screenshots, it'll save onto the microSD. If you don't have the money to buy a microSD, another option is uploading the screenshots to Facebook or Twitter through the Switch album itself, and from there you can go onto a PC and download them/copy their links.

If you use the microSD method, you'll have to upload the images to Imgur.

EDIT: Forgot to note that you'll need a microSD card slot in your PC, or if you have an SD card slot, a microSD to SD adapter.

Alright, we've had four days with three left, which puts us just over the halfway point.

I'm putting this reminder out because there are an alarmingly large group of people who I have received absolutely no input from. One person has given me an understandable explanation for being busy, but everyone else has been silent regarding this event.

Every hint I released has received at least one correct answer so far, so they're not impossible. So, I hope this coming weekend will give all users enough time to work on their answers, otherwise I'll have to take measures to make sure all the participants are able to participate.

How do I upload my own image to use in my posts, anyway?

If you don't have a microSD card, taking pictures from a phone or camera and uploading them to Imgur is fine, as long as the photos are clear.

I have a private Twitter account that I upload my screenshots to, then access on a computer and move to Imgur.

I used my phone for one of the hints. As long as youíre in a relatively dark place, the picture actually comes out pretty good.
