Since you brought up the subject, I'd like to understand what exactly is the point of creating scavenger hunts if there is no validation of the photos that are submitted. If you read the details of the <A HREF="http://fr.trekearth.com/scavhunt.php?hid=8&ttype=stats">Impossible Hunt</A> and then look at the photos in each category, you'll find that a lot of them simply don't meet the criteria. So if everyone is free to post anything they want, where's the challenge... and the fun?

They'll be validated eventually, even after the comptetion is over.

I agree that the Impossible Hunt was very difficult and could in fact BE impossible for large numbers of people (such as myself) who do not have the means or the capabilities to get photos of the listed items. On the other hand, I enjoyed the challenge and thinking about how I could get such shots (I did manage to make one entry).

So I think it would be a great idea to have two sets of Hunts: another Impossible Hunt that lasts for a year and is very challenging, and a set of regular Scavenger Hunts, such as TE had in the past, that last for 2-3 months and have easier items to pursue. Perhaps part of the problem is that the earlier, easier Hunts have used up most of the easy classifications? :-)

some ideas:
people in a museum
insects
something purple
below sea level (perhaps more appropriate for an Impossible Hunt)
colors of the rainbow
