Woah, umm do we get anymore details by any chance? :o
I am of course quite interested in this.
Oh boy, this seems it could get a bit difficult.
I don't know if I should praise you for this opportunity or curse you for it. :)
I think I may have figured out barely something in your scheme of themes, but I'm mostly metaphorically banging my head into a brick wall.
EDIT: Are we supposed to solo these or is teaming (or at least info sharing) fine by the rules. I wish everyone good fortune!
Obviously the answer is a grapefruit!
If this was your contest, then I'd bet it would be. :)
So the correct answer to your riddle is: "Stuff it down the throat of people who make me waste my time with treasure hunts for internet points"?
I feel stupid, but I really can't seem to figure this one out. I mean, I think I have some clues, but I've got no idea what they mean.
I had the same initial theory as Ford, but I'm not so sure anymore. I'm going with the whole path-following thingy as well.
Anyhow, I've got the trophy as well, and it is getting kinda late over here, so I think I'll call it a day. Unless someone posts an awesome hint within the next hour or so.
Oh, though I'm pretty sure about the last one.
I'm not sure if you're intentionally throwing everyone off, but I can't believe you haven't pointed out the bit more obvious clues yet.
Ha! That would be a nice double bluff. Though Madglee did the same trick for his treasure hunt.
Haha. Anyhow, I think he already has a clue now.
Dang, this is pretty interesting.
In my humble opinion, '---' is totally 0. If you search 'Illuminate' across the forums, the first message that pops up was posted by 'Zero'. Zero has JJJ-thebanisher's trophy, JJJ-thebanisher has BZ's trophy 'Thanks for the awesome site update'. If you search updates forum between Zero's last online date, and the date that JJJ got BZ's trophy... well...
Anyway I am struggling to search for the proper thing due to lag on my end, so I'll stop following misleading trails. xD
P.S. EDIT. Pretty sure the answer is to just click BZ's profile, after all there is a picture of his trophy right there, even ignoring the one he has himself.
Well yeah, we were also making fun of you. Anyhow, I'm not even that active on the forums, so a relevant thread with all four of us will probably be difficult to find. Anyhow, I would have missed both this thread and the (possible) hints if they weren't brought directly to my attention.
I'm not going to Point you in any further direction, as I don't really know how strict Berka is about sharing progress and such.
Yeah, sorry, am on mobile.
Dude are you serious.
Don't you remember the 20170007 additions.
So, some Clarification - Top Points (200, 150, 100) go to the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd to PM me the answer (and Yes, there is a sign, saying "Congrats you win," etc...). The 50 Points go to anyone (and all) after the top 3 that PMs me the correct answer.
You can work together or alone, but the order I receive correct PMs as time Date stamped will determine top winners.
So yes, you can say this is all about the XPs!
Okay everyone, please forward all hints and tips to my inbox.
It's important that we all come together with the sole goal of ensuring my victory.
Sure, just go ahead and waste all of our subtle hints for Ford.
That's what he was stuck on? I mean, I found that in 3 minutes, and he had all that complex mathmatical stuff going on there. I thought that was pretty much common knowledge already.
Anyway, I was in the middle of editing my post and making it not-so-obvious
Since everyone else seems to think it is, it would be nice as a damage control. ^^' Sorry.
The fun is ruined. Go home everyone.
I'm actually wondering, has anyone solved it yet?
I figured that this could only get more painfully fun.
You penguins and your sick games. Though to be fair if I didn't have your trophy already I would be like a dog on the hunt with this game.
Mizal is the first one, so let's analyze. Berka wanted to draw attention to her points. She has 2,000+ points. The first digit in her points is 2. Her profile picture is wearing 3 menstrual pads made of flesh on the back of her neck. 3. Two down from the first clue that Berka did, she only got one point for rating that game.
2, 3, 1, is the order you're supposed to hit those dungeon nut-throwers in that 90s weeb game about the green child, Legendary Zelda and the Macarana of Spice. Legendary Zelda is an Asian game about stealing triangles. What else is Chinese, involves a lot of numbers, and steals triangles? The Triads.
Romulus is a cock who used to rule this weird and dumb diplomatic utopia on another site. Cock has four letters. Four is the amount of things that Berka provided. And ALSO the amount of people. Coincidence? Romulus is an anagram for Mor Ulu, S. Who is S? Obviously SATAN. We can therefore infer that the Ulu is the devil's instrument: The Otomatone. An Otomatone is most often shone as a white thing with a round bald head. What else is a white thing with a round bald head, but the Common Racist?
The aforementioned Triads come into play here. Their symbol for punishment is the Meat Cleaver. BerkaZerka is the Mad Banner, and in his profile picture the Hammer of Punishment is a prominent symbol. Therefore the first step of the Scavenger Hunt must be to chop off a Racist's cock with a meat cleaver.
Applefucker is a fucking witch, so we have to dig into old witchy lore to truly understand Berka's intentions here. Her profile picture is of this bizarre lesbian elf child. She makes EVIL beverages and EVIL pastries. Elves are known to be tiny little shits that make things like shoes, drinks, and pastries. Do two of those things sound familiar? Therefore the Appled One is an evil elf, just like Mizal. UNLESS Thara is the floating Kangaroo thing next to the elf child, which means she is floating around pestering the evil elf, which sounds a lot more likely. Who floats over the Triads' shoulders and pesters them? The CIA. The CIA is also evil.
She has 5 trophies. 5 is the number of off-torso appendages a voodoo doll has. (Arms, Legs, Head.) If you offer the racist cock to The Spirits via voodoo doll, they will provide you with the first half of the true riddle, then you have to PM Wibbons and pester her until she tells you the other half of the riddle. Preferably with a lot of spamming, bumping the message once every half a minute with "Hey." "Hey." "Hey." "Hey.". Basically, one "Hey" for every person that was tagged. Preferably everyone should do this at the same time, so that we are all in a completely linear relation to time and space.
"This weird and dumb diplomatic utopia". Oh boohoo, you just couldn't stand that my country was better than yours in nearly every aspect.
I was completely the best! Nothing negative counted because we were transhumans, and the census takers were racists who only ever counted the primitive biological peasants, so it looked like a third-world shithole. YOUR country on the other hand was populated entirely not only by People, but by SCANDINAVIAN HIPPIES, and we all know those are basically the damn dirty Elves of Real Life!
Ooo, candy corn.
Do you mean that half of the candy corn was eaten and the other half untouched, or did you just bite off half of every one of them?
Is this like the good kind of candy corn with like actual flavoring, or is it that shitty off-brand stuff made out of wax and baby powder?
If it's not good candy corn, then it isn't candy corn. It's shit that doesn't deserve my love and affection!
Saying all candy corn deserves love is like saying all humans deserve love. It's clearly not true! Some humans are Nazis, or cannibals, or rapists, or rapist cannibal Nazis.
Such a rapid growth in a short timespan would severely disrupt his blood-circulation, and would most probably kill him.
I think that's the point. She's a psychopathic murderer you see. Kills people with dessert!
I don't wear tinfoil hats. I wear wonderful Holiday Cheer Hats.
You should try tinfoil hats out, and then post a picture with you wearing it! Everyone will love it! This guy did it-https://werunandride.com/2015/07/21/the-real-men-in-the-tinfoil-hats/
Any commonly hidden things under a Santa hat? I wounder if there's an actual list of that... Most likely not.
You were supposed to learn about that in health class.
The comment box.
Do you enter it in the upper box or the under box?
This is too much for my feeble mind to handle.
Well since I was tagged I'm just going to assume that means Berka might be considering give me a trophy or something. I'll see if there's something else I can probably do... unless I was just used as a hint, then I would just feel so used and abused. aye :/
I guess that dulls the pai-- arghhhh.
You didn't even need the trophy! :(
Is this because of the tape situation in the cell of disappointment? I said sorry, I was lonely and needed a friend.
I'd argue that Mizal really missed a perfect opportunity to troll Steve, by telling you the answer so you'd get Berka's trophy.
To be fair, finding the numbers isn't that easy. There is quite a lot of ways to go about trying to use the previous clues.
Okay, I fucking give up. After reading everyone's clues that they shared, my mind has gone off track...
I can't wait to see the solution and then kick myself multiple times!
I am so, so confused. I have no idea what is happening. The thoughts by certain people in this thread *cough* Ford *cough* are further confusing things.
CYS Treasure/Trophy Hunt Solution
So, the OP tagged four people, but the Contest was open to All. That was supposed to be a Clue to go look at the four members tagged, specifically their XP History.
I also meant to bold the word 'XP' in the OP, but didn't want to screw up the tags with html somehow, so I threw the XP Clue in a following post with this: "So yes, you can say this is all about the XPs!"
Looking at the tagged Members' XP Histories in order, shows a recent Admin Award on each of them as follows:
Mizal: 2 Points for "Down Three" & 2 Points for "Correction: Down Two"Romulus: 4 Points for "I blame autocorrect!"TharaApples: 1 Point for "CC"WouldntItBeNice: 3 Points for "#13"
Note that on Mizal's, I made a mistake with the first entry, so I had to correct it - meaning we ignore the "Down Three" entry.
The Point Value shows the Order to arrange the Clues, giving you:
1. CC2. Down Two3. #134. I blame autocorrect!
Trial and error reveals the meaning of the Clues to be:
Creative CornerDown Two Levels (via Older Messages Button)
In that Level, there is an old thread called BZ's Logic Puzzle for Points (while supplies last).
Clicking in there you will find the 13th Post which reads:
"I blame autocorrect!
ABCD × E = DCBA
(Replace letters with digits and have the sum be true. A,B,C,D and E are all different digits.)
The real trick then, is then finding somewhere to enter in DCBA... Good Luck! ^v^"
The thread originally just said "I blame autocorrect!" But then I added all the rest.
So here, you have a classic math puzzle to get a four digit pin number.
You could figure it out like the brilliant detective that you are - or, given how common this one really is, just google the answer.
The answer [redacted] must then be entered somewhere on the site to continue.
Where would such a number be entered?
In my Profile, there is a Sneak Peek game titled: "Five Pin Code"
The description even says: "The following is a 'How To It Guide,' for building a Five Pin Pass Code into your game for the purpose of pass-coding Unlockables, Game Sequels, or the like."
Playing through the game, takes you to a section at the end where you can try entering a 5 digit pin number to see how the tutorial works in action.
There, you enter the 4 digit pin number you got from the math puzzle (leading with a zero, because it's an input for 5 digits, not 4).
Doing that takes you to the "Congratulations! You Win Page, with instructions on PMing me with the secret code phrase, all espionage spy-like.
Mizal figured it out all by herself, showing her superior intellect, and ease at which she can be distracted from writing haha!
Zake figured it out, by pestering the right person for a boatload of clues (again, that would be Mizal). XD
At any rate, thank you all for playing. I had fun trying to concoct a set of clues that would be challenging, yet something most folks could actually follow. Looks like I failed miserably though LOL!
The Hunt is Officially Over.
Darn it, it had it all except for the correct numbers, cause I thought you meant one of the old writing prompt threads. Which incidentally also has a whole autocorrect thingy. This was a lot of fun though, thanks for hosting!
Huh, cool. Well fuck it, glad I didn't try, there was never a chance in hell I was doing that.
Ah! I had everything, I even looked through the five digit code game, but I was so confused. I didn't think to lead it with a 0.
Ohhhh. That was surprisingly fun despite me not actually thinking it up myself.
I initially had space lesbians too. Then I realised that there unfortunately wasn't such a game, went back two pages, and ended up at the wrong thread anyway.
I see your logic in hindsight, but I'm quite sure I couldn't have done that on my own. Oh well, on to writing storygames!
This was extremely clever. Well done Mizal and Zake..
Awww I didn't even see this ;~; RIP Seto ever getting a trophy
Same feeling here mate. We two anime addicts can cry together in a corner, isolated from the world...
Are you shipping us? Ford, I already have someone else. xD
Seto's just my weeaboo friend.
It's called polygamy. Clearly, you're building a harem. Anyhow, I would've thought the bigger objection would be that Seto's gayer than Sicarius, so you're hardly his type. Unless you're a dude, I can never remember what the fuck's going on with all your shit.
*insert emo music here* x'D
*sheds a tear* Somedayyy
Dammit, I was too late. Though, it would take me days to find it out (assuming I would)
