Treasure Hunt: LGBTQ Pride Month

Talk about LibraryThing

Join LibraryThing to post.

Edited: Jun 24, 10:04am Top

Happy Pride!

We've written 11 clues for you to solve around the theme of LGBTQ Pride. Read and solve each clue, then find the page on LibraryThing that matches your answer. When you find the right solution, you’ll see a banner at the top of your screen announcing that you’ve found a rainbow. Remember: it's not necessarily a work page!

Go here for the hunt!

You have one week—until Tuesday, June 30th at 5pm EDT—to find as many rainbows as you can.

Use this thread to brag, ask for and give hints, etc

As in past hunts, we'll be awarding profile badges to anyone who finds at least one rainbow, and anyone who finds all 11 will be entered into a drawing for a LibraryThing coaster set and sticker. This is a change from our usual tshirt prize, as stock is difficult to access while the office is still closed for social distancing.

Important: When giving hints, please use the spoiler tag. To mark something as a spoiler, start your message like this:

<spoiler>

And end it like this:

</spoiler>

Troubleshooting

If you’re not seeing banners, or the hunt is otherwise not working for you, you may be using the old site design. Hunts don’t work on the old version of the site. You can switch to the new version by going here. Scroll down to the bottom of the page and look under "Design." You can always switch back after the treasure hunt, if you like.

Happy hunting!

P.S. Thanks to conceptDawg for the gorgeous peacock illustration! He's made many of our treasure hunt graphics in the last couple years. We like them, and hope you do, too!

I'm stuck on #5 and I thought #6 was And Tango Makes Three but I'm not getting a flag for it.

3Watry
Jun 23, 5:57pm Top

I'm not getting flags for 5 or 6. I think the answer for 6 is fairly obvious, but I checked both the tag for the blank word and the work page for 5, am I missing something?

4SuziQoregon
Edited: Jun 23, 6:06pm Top

>3 Watry: Same for me. I’m fairly certain I’m in the right place for both 5 and 6 but no banners.

yeah, the answer to 6 seems obvious, I even own the book, but no banners. I got banners for 1-4.

6MarthaJeanne
Edited: Jun 23, 6:13pm Top

I got the first one and the last one.

Like everyone else, I thought I must have 6.

I'm in the same boat on 5 and 6!

8Watry
Edited: Jun 23, 6:29pm Top

Well, while we wait for answers on 5 and 6, does anyone have a hint for 7?

ETA: Never mind, I got it just after I typed this out! That just leaves 5 and 6.

I'm another member who's here to confirm banners are missing. At first, I thought the problem was that I'd clicked from my catalogue. Then problem is the main work page doesn't bring up the flag.

5 and 6 aren't working for me, either.

14Carmen.et.Error
Edited: Jun 23, 6:58pm Top

I'm pretty sure I'm correct for numbers 5 and 6, too, but I'm not getting a banner for either.

15conceptDawg
Edited: Jun 23, 7:00pm Top

Ok. Fixed that. It was only failing to find Clue 6 correctly because the solution key had a trailing '/' after it, so it wouldn't know that you hit that page unless you ALSO had a trailing slash after the work ID. Needless to say, most of them don't unless you happen to have the book (in which case it would have a trailing slash followed by the book/bookID suffix).

Anyway, I'm rambling. Short answer: that clue is fixed.

22Watry
Jun 23, 7:10pm Top

I've gotten all the tags except 5, so unless something else happens, it looks like the rest are working.

al.vick, it's not the tag you probably think it is. You're looking for more specificity, two words.

23lesmel
Edited: Jun 23, 7:12pm Top

Answer to Clue 5 is working!

24conceptDawg
Jun 23, 7:12pm Top

OK.
CLUE 5 solution was incorrect in the solution key also. I've fixed that.
So if you think you knew the answer to 5 and it didn't give it to you, try again. You might have been correct.

25al.vick
Jun 23, 7:14pm Top

For 7, make sure you're reading the first line correctly. You're looking for someone who shares a first name with a famous Brando. Or really one of his works. .

Thanks! I'm almost positive I have the answer, but I'm not getting a banner telling me that I got a rainbow for it, so there must be a bug.

So thanks to this talk and judicious googling I have only four more to get. Number 7 I have seemed to stumble on by accident

I searched the site for Authors called Marlon and then clicked on one, then on a few of the books but I didn't see the notification come up. But when I doubled back to the hunt page to rethink it was flagged.

I don't know what I did to get it but I'm happy I have

Cheers

Please someone toss me some clues for #8 and #9!

ETA: never mind, some googling got me there

54karenb
Edited: Jun 24, 3:48am Top

>51 lowelibrary:, #2 - I found it by searching (the internet) for the opening phrase and "epistolary". The author's name is also in the clue.

>52 Macbeth:, #7 - Yes, it is an author with first name Marlon.

>53 FemmeNoiresque:, #8 - Try searching for a relevant tagmash on LT.

#9 - Try searching (the internet) for the character's relevant characteristics.

I don't know why I didn't notice this earlier, but in the posted clues, capitalized words usually indicate a proper name. Like, ya know, a person or the title of a work.

Hi all. This is a quick note that, due to social distancing constraints of accessing our store stock, the prizes for this hunt have been changed.

For number 5, some hints:

I believe the final line of the clue is a reference to a dance song by comedy duo Ylvis .

The word Confessions is in the title of the work.

It's author is Jordy Rosenberg.

For anyone stuck on # 3.

I knew the author right away and clicked on his profile but no banner.

So I looked up the title of the work mentioned in line 3 of the clue, and clicked the author's name from there .... BINGO!

>57 kjgormley: I've always preferred the coaster set anyway. So yay! Maybe I'll win this time.

But I'm glad I came to this group to look for something else. I saw the banner once then never again and I forgot about it. I'm using the current web design. After about a century, I finally changed.

I still want my salmon back. 😝

Can anyone give me any clues towards #10? I think I have the correct tag , actually I've tried a number of tags, but I can't seem to get it. Is it a tag on say a book on something like The Stonewall Riots ? I feel like I've tried every tag I can think of related to that, but I'm coming up empty, so to speak. Is the tag on the work page of a book or somewhere else? Or am I out in left field ? Thanks in advance.

I got all the rest no problem, but this one is driving me crazy ;-)

Literally squealed when I saw this! Only found three so far but only started like 20 minutes ago, lol. I knew 10 immediately but it took awhile to get the exact wording right. Knew 6 immediately but forgot the phrasing of the title at first.

Clue #1 is so obvious that you probably think that can't be it! It's the tag for what these clues are called: ____ 1, ____2, etc.

Clue #8: Do a tagmash search on the topics and look for the book whose author who fills in the blank.

Clue #9: You're looking for the series page of children's books about Norse gods. Author's initials are RR (not just the middle two!) He has another series based on Greek mythology.

>102 hepzibah59:

# 8 - I tried google search for identifiers listed in the second line of the clue - AND - then I looked for an author with initials C R S whose last name would rhyme with "thwarten")

You can post here, but it's not necessary. And, no, you don't submit it anywhere. The site knows when you've got everything.

Correct, it is not registering as the correct answer on the main work page for the book.

The hunt is not over yet, is it? There is a banner saying it is but the end date is not until June 30th. I am so confused.....

All but 11 wrapped up. I keep thinking I have it but then I'm shown I don't. Any hints?

I got it as soon as I posted here.... Too funny

Is it just me, or did the banner disappear from the home page already? I noticed yesterday it was gone and it's still gone today. Had to find this thread to be able to get to it (I usually don't take time to do these until the weekend).

>118 lilithcat: the series is titled after the character whose name is blank in the clue, but Alex is one of the series' main characters.

>132 aspirit: That happened to me too right after I completed the search and got 11 rainbows. Past hunts did not work like that. I also had to access through this thread. There does not seem to be any other access point. There should be. It is not supposed to be over until Tuesday.

Banner is gone for me also however, I did not check after I had finished.

>133 Micheller7: I looked for it in the "top news" section on the right side of my home page. Usually the treasure hunts are also listed there with a link, but I was surprised to not see it (it was the first place I looked when I noticed the banner gone). So, instead I had to hunt down this thread!

Got them all in about 3 hours. Some I knew by my self. But Google is a great friend.

>137 keepfitz: Electricity Robber is code for The Lightening Thief which gives you the author of the series you are looking for

Massive : Go to Rick Riordan's author page and check all the series. I have no idea about the "ice cream brand"!

I didn't know about the treasure hunt until I read the monthly newsletter. When I click to use the "new design" nothing seems to change? :(

Magnum which is close enough to the series main character name :)

>140 Faranae: What colour do you see at the top of this page? If you see chocolate brown, you are using the 'new' design. If you see salmon pink you are are using the old design. This change was made in 2013, so before you joined LT.

Hi all—I'm glad you're all playing this month! Per a couple notes here, I've made sure to put a link to the hunt in the Homepage Top News section. Thanks for the catch. Happy Hunting!

>142 MarthaJeanne: I thought so, which was why I was confused by both the bug and the fix. Definitely using the "new" design, and I do not get the event banner except when I solve a clue.

>143 kjgormley: Oh thank you KJ! That makes things much easier even without the banner. :)

Thanks very much for the Pride Hunt this month! Got them all without coming here (she says smugly)…. very fun!

Glad the link is now in the news. I had looked there too when I did my prior post to this thread. But no one has said why the banner disappeared.

Fun Hunt and educational - learned about a lot of books i might never have heard of otherwise.

Thanks to LT and the Dawg for putting this up

>116 aspirit: and >118 lilithcat:
So the only connection is that this author once wrote a different book that includes a genderfluid character??
That seems like a pretty lame connection to Pride.
Oh well. Got it anyway, but if that's it then the series isn't going onto my TBR LGBTQ list anytime soon . . .

You don't have to know or to understand. You just have to find.
The solution is on this site and is of a technical kind.

Hunt for the Pirate. Travel back in time.
You will find all 11 solutions in a single chest.

>149 magicians_nephew: To be sure I have VERY little to do with this hunt, or any of the others for that matter. I contribute about 15 minutes of my time to a sketch and get the hunt files up to the server then get personal credit in every talk post. It's a sweet gig. :)

kjgormley is the one that does most of the actual work of planning, poems, organization, social posts, talk posts, giving out prizes, etc. They deserve all of the credit. The Hunts are fun though so I think we keep going until members stop participating.

>150 LucindaLibri: no a secondary character in the SAME series is genderfluid. and the main character is pansexual btw (if u wanted to know)

>150 LucindaLibri: this doesn't feel to me like an appropriate thread to talk about any one book's characterizations and themes in detail.

Basically, the main hero's interactions with the Alex character include discussions about gender and identity. If you do want to know more, you should be able to look up the reviews onsite and fan synopsis off-site.

Of course, don't include the series on a list where you don't want it.
