Easter Egg Hints

Recommended Posts

Michal Taszycki

hahaha Ok!

Although this kind of looks like an easter egg... hmm. Congratulations if that's the case.

I silently hope it's something more elaborate though ;)

spiderman was here before the new forum, he's awesome but he's not the easter egg. Besides, like Cory said...it will be obvious

Well, I know there is something somewhere, but I need to find how to unlock it. :(

Hmm... I don't think I'll find the Easter egg in my quad ruled notebook where I log my training... Oh well!

Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

I am a strength coach and a licensed therapist for sport massage, stop looking for the egg like I'm a public relations specialist.

I can't promise that taking a few minutes to log workouts on the forums will make you find the egg, but I can tell you it will help your chances tremendously.

few minutes lol it took me 2 full days to log all my workouts on my wordpress blog. :(

I suspect this is another unscheduled hint. Time will tell....

@Cory Thanks for this easter egg, even if I don't find it :)

At the very least it motivated me to get familiar with this forum software and start my workout log.

Now since it's somewhat public I'll hopefully keep updating it regularly.

I'm guessing those serious about their training also follow the WODs. :ph34r:

Is it the fact that photos of the members from the your best pictures thread are used as the site background? Nothing to do with workout logs but worth a try :)

@ mic skelly - he said when you find it it will be IN YOUR FACE OBVIOUS

@ kyle - unfortunately this is the same problem as the training log thing. there are very serious trainees who don't necessarily keep training logs (or if they do they are in a notebook), or follow the exact WOD

BTW should we assume that easter egg is something specific to Gymnastic Bodies and not generic IP.Board easter egg? ;) (like https://www.gymnasticbodies.com/forum/?module=extras&section=stats&do=who&s=ugly_old_matt)

It's specific to Gymnastic Bodies. You guys keep overthinking everything. From what Cory has said you WILL know when you found it.

There's been very little progress on finding the egg, so I'll clarify the second hint:

You can't enable the Easter Egg without posting two weeks' worth of workout logs since the new website launch.

I wrote this so that simply putting a bunch of garbage posts will not register with the egg. They don't have to be absurdly detailed, however, just legitimate so you don't get filtered out. It's also smart enough to know if you try to backdate logs or otherwise cheat. I'm also not going to give you the minimum days per week or parameters required to be a legitimate workout entry.

Thanks for the update Cory. Could you provide one small clarification about backdating?

Does your definition of backdating mean that I cannot post logs tonight for both yesterdays and todays workout and have them both count toward your two week minimum?

Thanks!

Correct, it goes by the date the post was made and whether or not it contained legitimate workout information. It does not go by the date written in the post text.

That said, even starting a proper log tonight doesn't mean you're out of the race. I was disappointed though--had a couple people kept legitimate logs, they were so close in every other aspect of their search that they would have found the egg a week ago.

Now I dunno if it's worth it to start logging here again when I logged everything in word, and just copying the last 2 months or so in here wouldn't help me either. Damn.

You can realistically type a day's entry in 2-3 minutes. It's not requiring a twenty page dissertation per workout for the egg to count it.

So you are saying that I can just type my last 2 weeks of workouts in new posts and it will be the same as posting the workouts the last two weeks?

No, because it goes by the date you made the post. I'm saying it can be done from this point forward with only 10-15 minutes total investment of time.

Meh, I probably filled up my "log" too quickly.

To be completely honest, I think having the logging requirement wasn't a good idea. Many dedicated people have their log elsewhere and they pretty much get a late start on this, while guys like beasty boy and jon who have their regular logs here, have a head start.
