Woah, umm do we get anymore details by any chance? :o 

I am of course quite interested in this. 

CYS Treasure/Trophy Hunt

Not unless everyone gets stumped before anyone actually figures out the first clue.

Madglee tried one of these once, but it was so crazy-out-there, that no one even knew about it, till long after he left for a while and came back. I don't think it was ever solved either.

Hopefully, this one will be a little more doable.

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!

I see what I guess are some clues, but I'm a bit distracted right now and also it's like being good at figuring this sort of thing out represents a skill I never knew existed until I suddenly discovered I was bad at it.

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'm sure end can think of a few more interesting places to actually stuff a grapefruit haha!

CYS Treasure/Trophy Hunt

This is embarrassing, I'm not even sure if I have the first two clues right and the third is still stumping me.

Are there further clues? I'm assuming yes. Anyone had any luck yet finding more?

CYS Treasure/Trophy Hunt

one month ago
stuck on second and unsure of first.

90% sure the first clue is a numerical cypher of the post but that's all I'm willing to share with the general site.

CYS Treasure/Trophy Hunt

Okay well now I'm not even sure if what I was considering to be the first clue is even the first clue.

CYS Treasure/Trophy Hunt

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.

CYS Treasure/Trophy Hunt

one month ago
I'm absolutely sure on two numbers. I'm fairly certain they are a part of a larger set of numbers. If I'm correct so far then it's likely a set of five digits.

then again I could be completely wrong in the number based cipher.

CYS Treasure/Trophy Hunt

one month ago
Well fwiw that's not the approach I was taking at all, my first assumption was that I was on a hunt to locate a new set of clues somewhere.

But I couldn't find any and also I already have BZ's trophy so this is not as pressing for me.

CYS Treasure/Trophy Hunt

one month ago
2/4 people he tagged have his trophy already and 4/4 don't need 100 extra points for any reason.

CYS Treasure/Trophy Hunt

one month ago

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.

CYS Treasure/Trophy Hunt

one month ago
That was my initial theory. The first thing I did was look at the source code for BZ's profile and the post but the next thing I did was I used Chanbot to webscrape google for everything I could think of and filtered to only include the site. Roughly 500 threads, comment pages, storygames, etc total including anything from the spelling of certain words in the OP to the members names, a bunch of words like clue and congratulations, and any relevant thread where BZ got no reply (thus able to edit his posts - though the flaw here is he's an admin and can edit whatever post he wants). There was nothing of note from this method. So I asked my mother who studies cryptography and does a bunch of cryptogram puzzles and plays a bunch of cipher games to come look at the text of the message. She looked and wrote down some stuff and I told her the context and what the acronyms mean etc and she said it's likely that the message translates into a set of numbers.

I've been looking for numbers and clues for a while and I've gotten sort of far. I'll release a little bit excluding the stuff I got in the last hour-ish:



@Mizal // 5 | tags are in alphabetical and length order
@Romulus // 7 | all are recognizable members of the site
@TharaApples // 11
@WouldntItBeNice // 15

Open to All of CYS! // All : clues are hidden outside of forums and may be on any webpage of the site

BZ's Glorious Mustache Trophy to the Winner! (Or a 100 XP Bonus if you already have it) // the Winner : single winner | capitalized Bonus | missing period | none of those tagged have any reason to gain a mere 100xp and 2 of them already have the trophy.

200, 150, 100, 50 XP Prizes (depending on how far you get). // at least 4 stages + end making 5 total | capitalized Prizes

--- // 3 | could denote separation of clues | could mean clue begins at this line

Sorry, I've already said to much! CYS Illuminate prevents any further clues. // "to" spelt wrong (*too) number: 2 | "Illuminate" spelt wrong (*Illuminati) e is to i where I is the roman numeral for 1 (could also be number 9 in alphabet) | Illuminate is to light up an area. A light?

Good Luck! // clue(s) possibly rely on luck.



That's what I got excluding some newer things I'm trying right now. If it's 5 digits or 7 digits it could be a thread ID or post ID respectively unless it's a really really really old thread/post. Now I feel like I've said too much lol. BD can probably guess what I'm doing right now just from these last two sentences.

Anyone else willing to share what they got? At least get us all started with the first clue?

CYS Treasure/Trophy Hunt

You are either really overthinking this or none of us ever had a chance to begin with. :P

CYS Treasure/Trophy Hunt

CYS Treasure/Trophy Hunt

one month ago
I did wind up eventually overanalyzing the OP and the Illuminate thing seemed suspicious, although I never noticed the names being alphabetical or their length. I still think there could be some clue in there, but that wasn't the first set of clues I was looking at anyway.

CYS Treasure/Trophy Hunt

one month ago
it's hard for me to believe that we're overestimating BZ's ability to spell things correctly. He had x amount of time to write the post and has a history of spelling words correctly.

CYS Treasure/Trophy Hunt

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.

CYS Treasure/Trophy Hunt

one month ago
ah yes the obvious ones. the ones everyone has already as soon as they look at the post. those ones. I figured they weren't worth mentioning. How about you list those obvious ones since they're so obvious?

CYS Treasure/Trophy Hunt

one month ago
Yeah I was wondering that too lol. Might be a bit unfair that no one else but the four listed would have had it directly brought to their attention, but it still seems a major oversight unless he's messing with us.

CYS Treasure/Trophy Hunt

Ha! That would be a nice double bluff. Though Madglee did the same trick for his treasure hunt.

CYS Treasure/Trophy Hunt

God I hope he did miss them and has been running around in circles literally without a clue this entire time...

CYS Treasure/Trophy Hunt

one month ago

Haha. Anyhow, I think he already has a clue now. 

CYS Treasure/Trophy Hunt

one month ago

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.

CYS Treasure/Trophy Hunt

I think Romulus and I gave you a pretty good clue already.

CYS Treasure/Trophy Hunt

oh. I thought you guys went off to make fun of me so I didn't bother reading the posts lol.

Edit:: still don't see the clue. am I supposed to have a memory in order to get it? cause I have no memory and also I'm not super active in the kinds of threads all four of you would be in.

CYS Treasure/Trophy Hunt

one month ago

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. 

CYS Treasure/Trophy Hunt

please use more clear words I am only a retarded 5 year old. what do you mean by directly brought to your attention? I'm not any of the four who were tagged so I have no insight to what any of you mean.

I guess if all four are retarded and also 2 of them don't even need the main prize then it's a fair shot compared to everyone else. Can't believe BZ would lump Romulus with those others.

I feel disgusted with myself and frustrated I spent a good couple hours following nothing.

The very mention of madglee in connection to this should have made it obvious where to look.

CYS Treasure/Trophy Hunt

one month ago
you mentioning madglee now still doesn't make sense to me. what's special about madglee? his posts are oddly out in the left-field of extended topics and therefore his threads get no attention? I don't remember anything particular about madglee except he's a good admin and kind of odd here and there.

Threads like this make me glad I have a shit memory all around. Given a month or two I'll forget all of this and I can go back to feeling like I'm not completely incompetent.

CYS Treasure/Trophy Hunt

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!

What's hilarious is I just remembered (using memories, which thankfully I have) that recently in another thread Ford spelled out how useless he'd be at this, because he doesn't like to click or look at things. I'll choose to think of this as you deliberately exploiting his weak point.

Wasn't my intention to create a headache inducing puzzle though (just a genuinly challenging one). At any rate, anyone who sticks around through the slog will get a minimum of 50 points out of it, so there's that at least.

Really if you ask me, it's what you deserve for starting off using a bot to do everything for you anyhow. And then going from there to complaining about 'unfair advantages' lol.

CYS Treasure/Trophy Hunt

I complained because I thought the people with the advantages would be competent enough to use them to get a head start and ensure no one else could effectively use them. (none of you even started spam rating games or duelling cysid to slow others down like who gets a golden egg from god and doesn't hide it???)

Guess I was wrong which makes me feel even more shit about myself because even with the knowledge and foresight you had from the beginning you still haven't got anywhere; and I am lesser to you so it's like being at the bottom of the landfill.

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.

CYS Treasure/Trophy Hunt

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.

Solution

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. CC
2. Down Two

4. I blame autocorrect!

Trial and error reveals the meaning of the Clues to be:

Creative Corner
Down 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.

/ and ease at which she can be distracted from writing haha!/

It's true. :(


Anyway, thanks for doing this! I think the difficulty level was about right. Might have been a mistake posting it on a weekend however as those are always so inexplicably dead around here.

And yeah I just looked at the math formula in hopeless despair for a couple of moments and then tabbed over to Google, and hey it worked!

Ohhhh. That was surprisingly fun despite me not actually thinking it up myself.

I interpreted "down 2" as the second thread in Creative Corner, hence my answer of space lesbians.

Clearly I had the better solution.

Did people actually figure out "down 2" meant to go back 2 pages, or did everyone that found the thread do so simply because they looked through CC until the found a Berka thread that made sense?

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.

Going back two pages was one of the first things I tried, but at this point I counted down thirteen threads and then got side tracked wondering if Down Two meant two /boards/ and whether Down Three was really an error or part of the puzzle.

If I'd only READ the threads I might have clicked the one by BZ that referenced both puzzles and points but alas I was on my phone while I was supposed to be doing other things and hadn't bothered zooming in.

I figured it couldn't be as simple as counting down two threads, because then anyone posting or making a new one would break that clue.

After I figured it out I even made a post with LOGIC in all caps as a nudge to anyone scouring the CC, but you all failed to pick up on it. Too bad.

And then on Sunday Ebon sent me some hilariously incorrect wild speculation and it was real hard not to straighten him out.

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..

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.

I'm sorry but this is karma for you not being around much anymore.

But if you WERE to be as active as before you could probably earn one normally seeing how I got one somehow and Thara and Minnie are also contenders.

Dammit, I was too late. Though, it would take me days to find it out (assuming I would)
