It's funny how we all started getting it at the same time. I bet we went through the same process of seeing the guy who posted Aisla Craig, ending up some place like this and then working it out from there.
Edit: or people who are actually from Scotland and know the answer anyway...
WINNER!! the plant in this photo is Heliamphora elongata, endemic to the ilu tepui and tramen massif. This photo was taken on the ilu tepui. How did you figure it out? Also, if you are interested in carnivorous plants check out /r/SavageGarden :) I also have some photos from my personal collection here: https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/
No worries, congrats on your first win!
A few tips for newcomers:
Have an image ready and uploaded to imgur with a question in mind
When you start a new round, don't forget the round number in the title
Don't take longer than 10 minutes to submit your photo after you guess correctly. (Some people are very impatient here)
Make sure you can't reverse image search with Google Images or TinEye If it can, use Paint, Paint.NET, GIMP, Photoshop or any other image editing software.
Don't abandon your round. If you must, message the mods the answers
Each Saturday we have a theme (today is the Simpsons)
I have no idea, but in trying to find it, I came across this wacky site.
Pretty sure this is correct, though OP hasn't confirmed it. That's clearly Willow Rosenberg (Alyson Hannigan) from Buffy; her husband is Alexis Denisof, who was in Guardians of the Galaxy; it lost Best Visual Effects to Interstellar and Best Hairstyling and Makeup to Grand Budapest Hotel.
Give me 5 minutes and I'll have a link for you.
It'll use a combination of IFTT and PushBullet.
I can also write one for IFTT that sends you an email if you'd prefer that.
edit: PushBullet Notification (PushBullet is a link to the round).
edit 2: Email Notification
FYI: You'll get a LOT of notifications over the course of a day.
Hint 4 had a streetname in the background which I was trying to figure out what it could say - after a few combinations it corrected it to Avercampstraat. I searched for that on flickr and found this which had the info.
Here is an album of some SoDakZak images you can use in your image creating! Have fun! Feel free to use whatever you have available, whether that be Paint, Photoshop, or an online image editor.
Actually there are three, Trailhead Buffalo Burger, Trailhead Elk Burger, and the Trailhead Mountain Man Burger

Searching for "wavy bridge" gets this. The rest follows.

i searched for like man jogging or something. rised a similar image to find https://www.shutterstock.com/image-photo/caucasian-young-man-running-on-seacost-1464916748 and then looked at the photographer's about info
Searched for "man listening to music bridge" on Shutterstock, filtered by 20s and caucasian, and found the photo. Then I found this other photo in the same series, and saw the company was Serbian, so I searched for "Serbia white arch bridge" on Google Images.
Standret is only the last name, the full name is Myron Standret, but I'll accept it as a name +correct
The other one was Artiom Kireev
Oh sorry, I didn't write it there.
No, I guessed the title of the second pic, Road kill, because with that picture it was pretty obvious (and you could confirm Road under the black you striked it with), then googled Road kill board game, then I found this site, where I could click on the different infos for the game and it sorted those which were connected to that item, so I clicked through all of Road kill's designers, artists, and under C. Brent Ferguson I found the cover pic for Captain's Log... :-)
Newport tower was "technically" I was looking for, but Old Stone Mill is named on tripadvisor.
"christ the redeemer" statue africa -rio -brazil -tallest on google image search > found this picture that looks pretty similar > spent too much time scrolling through the africa catholic section of shutterstock before I typed the image ID (758598886) into the search bar of shutterstock > landed on this image, which is conveniently title "Lubango, Angola" > Christ Lubango Angola on google maps got me the statue (with photosphere to confirm) > clicking on the stadium gave me its name.
US$1092 would be very expensive!
> The hike up to the Tiger's Nest can be very strenuous and you can rent a horse to bring up the mountain for about USD $10. The horse ride is a one-way trip (this is recommended if you are not very fit and may face altitude sickness) and you have to make your way down the mountain by foot.
I wonder what they do with all the horses that accumulate at the top.
i don't need the domain
hint zero: use desmos to play around with things. it'll be in the form r=f(θ)
hint uno: notice that the maximum r is never greater than 1. this suggests that the function is r=sin(something) or r=cos(something)
hint dos: composition of two common functions. so either r=sin(g(θ)) or r=cos(g(θ))

No...sorry...this was way harder than I thought it would be. The answer was Comillas, Spain. Gaudi's other building in this town is El Capricho.
Found the same picture, googled the park name, got a tripadvisor page with a longer name and reviews about feeding the fish. 19 seconds too late, however.
Damn these assholes, i found the waterfall but they didn't name it! :(
Like the other reply said, that’s not really an issue. What I’d be worried about is that font search by image tools like this one exist. An filter on top of the image would solve the vulnerability.
Yes!! You got it! This is the Sault Ste. Marie emergency swing dam, located on the canal near the bridge linking Sault Ste. Marie (Ontario) with Sault Ste. Marie (Michigan). It was built in 1895 and only used once. Nice work! :)
As promised, here's the explanation of how it works.
Found video, found reddit thread where somebody wrote where the video is filmed.
went here to calculate
then just measured and found the basketball court (second try)
Clue: The subreddit does not have the word "infinite/infinity" or any variant thereof in the title. You may find a word on the synonyms section this page useful to start your search
No. What i mean is this specific program/project. So, if this was https://scratch.mit.edu/projects/10128407/ , you'd answer "Paper Minecraft v11.3 (Minecraft 2D).
Yep, still great after all these years! (Originally out in 1995, due for a reprint this year I believe). https://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/93/el-grande
The original picture isn't mine; I found it here: https://boardgamegeek.com/image/306360/el-grande
(I just flipped it so there's no Google Image Search results for it.)
I gotta get this to the table again soon!
Here was my to the answer:
Realised that it was Google Street view on a railway. Used this site: https://www.google.com/streetview/gallery/ and saw only Switzerland and Portugal had Street View on trains. It definitely wasn't Switzerland so it must be Lisboa or Porto. Found bridges in Porto on 3D maps.
Solve path: search for "checkmate with 5 bishops" or "chess game repeating bb8 bc7" and you'll find it.
Note: here is a good article about this game: https://www.chess.com/article/view/computers-in-chess-good-or-evil-part-two
hint: this video does not explain it the best but it is the shortest. 2x speed could help https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j_QILnBPUWc
this may also be helpful: https://brilliant.org/wiki/strong-induction/
it was the first result for
watch "wr" "200m" on google images
looked up the model number along with "famous wears" and got an article about Bill Gates
My solve path:
Google "ABC alphabet animals book" in different languages on Amazon
here’s the link to the page
the modmailed solve path is pretty unsatisfactory tbh
Hint 1: As the good people from the discord have found, if you put this picture of the logo of Steganos (-> Steganography) in you will get 0rPKTE2, which in turn corresponds to
Hint 2: How do you find stuff on a map?
Hint 3: AB=12
Hint 4: If only there was a way to measure the width and height of an image...
Hint 5: What if you looked at the pixel with width = 98 and height = 239?
What I’ve found so far is that It’s the beginning of a phrase from this book, but it’s also used to display fonts because the full sentence has all the Letters of the alphabet in it
Since I worded the question a little ambiguously, I'll give it to you.
"The <strong>Anne Frank tree</strong> was a horse-chestnut tree in the city center of Amsterdam that was featured in Anne Frank's The Diary of a Young Girl. Anne Frank described the tree from The Annexe, the building where she and her family were hiding from the Nazis during World War II."

I saw this book kicking around on my shelf so it inspired me for this round. Great read if you're interested in how it was solved. Not just the math either, but the politics and people behind it.

Sorry, that's a little too abstract of a connection. You had it right with the second guess but just a bit late. Also, don't forget, only one answer per comment :)
Left number obscured is 6300. Right is Elijah.
Alternatively, I note that this website http://themellowjihadi.com/2014/07/03/xm607-vulcan-b2-bomber-chariot-fire/ refers to the Vulcan bomber, widely used in Operation Black Buck, as the chariot of fire.
