Kotaku is having a Halloween pumpkin carving contest and one of the entries was this awesome Alien Hominid pumpkin! This, combined with some prodding from jmtb02, inspired me to run a quicky contest of our own!
As you've hopefully noticed, I posted our selections from the Treasure Hunt 2007 thread on the front page. We picked A Gamer & Resident Evil 4 as the winner because it managed to make us laugh without being horribly offensive - basically the same criteria that applied to last years' winner, Break'n Into Your House. We LOVE the offensive movies, though, so never hesitate to submit those.
The rest of the front page selections are a hodge-podge of dick jokes, funny audio and general oddness. In case the showcase has already been swapped out by the time you read this, here it is in text link form:
A Gamer & Resident Evil 4 - Discovered by jman6561
The Perfect Picnic
Getting Off The Train
Weeds of Destruction
The adventures of Baxter
da adventures of pico
Over Nine Thousand Licks
Last year's Treasure Hunt yielded How Many Licks "2", so the Tootsie Pop references are becoming an annual tradition.
I checked out every submission in the 30 page thread (almost 900 posts, JEEZ!) and made a big list of stuff that deserves a shot on the front page. Here is a short list for late Friday night browsing:
Pants Off Men (brings back memories of Nocturne at Shampoo in Philly)
Spider and Mike
A Day at the Beach
heh heh heh
Doctor Who - Paranomax
How the West was Dumb
Bob, Bob and Bob
Timmy's on Fire
Heman and the Nazis
The Headless Jerk
I Swear to God
Tomorrow I plan to swap out the Treasure Hunt showcase with a whole bunch of Halloween movies! I figure we'll run a bunch this weekend, then a bunch more on Wednesday... And some in-between. With so much great stuff, it's hard to make room for it all on the front page. This is why it's important that you EXPLORE the site and add things to your FAVORITES list when you find them!
Speaking of favorites, Ross just finished the re-introduction of the OTHER FAVORITES list. Go to your account options page and look for the other favorites link in your FAVORITES box. You can now manage a much longer list and there are new categories such as games, TV shows and books. This was the last of the gray links, meaning we've caught up with all the old features that weren't included with the redesign launch back in July! Things should start to get interesting around here!
hehe, the frontpage is full of undiscovered gold, i got on yesterday and thought all the thumbs looked funny ;P the abusive reviews are commin in though... -sigh-
I have a lot of movies to watch this weekend, heh. congrats to everyone who's submissions made the list ^_^
When I saw Luis's munny I really wanted to make one of those... can't wait to see what that will bring.
Also kthx Ross for fixing the other favorites :3
Yarrr, NG be a pirate chest filled wif buried treasure ;D
Congrats to the winner and all the flash on the front page as well as those close to it. Also, nice to see other favorites back, thanks for the update :3

(It was this one)
Yes, I saw it. Excellent use of drop shadows. :)
But yeah, it has a lot of decent fundamentals for a fun adventure game. And I like the way the guy tosses the money everywhere. I die trying to burn the hobo, though.
Congratulations to the winners.
I'm happy that the new favorites list is finally ready. I already got started on it.
Quick question, though. when I go on someone's page and I click the trophy button, it just takes me back to the top of that person's page. Is that something that's going to be fixed?
Other than that, I really like what's been done over the past few months! :)
I laugh at your sigs!

We eventually want to have a more comprehensive TROPHIES page that includes trophies for special events, art contests, music, etc... It's on the list. :)
Heh, looks like my Ken's Lawnmower find got knocked out the showcase by the Tootsie Pop tradition! Congratulations to the overall winner!
Oh man, i didnt win :(
oh well, theres always next year i guess :D
Congratulations to the winners!
