I just noticed this post in Tuning Spork's last post on the latest game thread, looks like the game is on again!!


Looks like it was bumped by member The Eye, but I cannot find anything on him...

Also when you type in a wrong answer the eye says..."I do not know how to answer that"

I am thinking it has something to do with the 99 is the number at the top of the page? Time to do some searching...

Me, too. But keep in mind that it's only been a week or so since this new life has been breathed into the game. The powers that be need at least a little time to prepare our next adventure.

I'm sure we'll by underway by Talk Like A Pirate Day.


Aarrrrrr.....

Aha!!!

I think this is It!

w00t!

But let's make sure, though.

If you quote TuningSpork, you can see the entry there " it is time to start the game", but there is no bb code for the color used.

Also, this is the same way that clues had been left in the past.

By inserting them into existing posts.

I am going to do a little snooping for anything realting to the member "The Eye"

Okay, the game site has been changed.

I entered an arbitrary answer and got this reply...



I do not know how to answer that.


still cookies are not being set though.

We have to find the clue to the first question...

I did a search for member "The Eye" in several different ways. It appears that this member never existed.


Here I get the default blank profile (direct member search query for "The Eye") :

www.abovetopsecret.com...

I also used the WayBack Machine :

web.archive.org...

to see if that member ever existed. No results so far, will dig a little deeper.

Great, they decide to open the agme back up on a US National holiday, when a lot of people are doind holiday things with the kids, etc.


We are going to need some help in finding the first clue that will really start the game and activate the "seeker" cookie on the game site.

Not meaning to downplay the first find, downintheupside, it was a great catch!

but we still have to figure out how to activate the game, so to speak. Also, there could be some confusion as to which domain the game is to be played on, as three domains appear to act the same.

atc.org (alltheconspiracies.org)
atc.com
atl.org (allthelies.org)

entering a false answer in either of these gives the same message "I do not know how to answer that"

So perhaps that will be another obstacle to overcome.

I did a quick lookup to see if there was a member with the UID 99 and I found member "Garatron"
www.abovetopsecret.com...

But haven't come up with anything yet

Well, I tried

howdoistart.html
whatdoyouwant.html
start.html
takemetothepath.html
help.html
about.html
The%20Eye.html
theeye.html
Garatron.html (reference to UID 99)
garatron.html

plus several others that I don't remember.

No joy.

woohoo! finally!


Well. It seems by the eye's response "I don't know how to answser that"... that we should be asking the eye a question rather than giving it an answer as has been done in the past.

Spork.. what the heck is "Talk like a pirate day" ?

Sorry, I will be in and out on this prolly till the weekend... fireworks and all ya know.


I have tried most of what Mech has with no results yet either, but not at every site, just the .com one.

I am still getting nowhere with the 99 thing, only found this so far... The Number 99

We americans have a day of celebration for just about everything you can think of Zarni.

So are we supposed to use atc.com, or atc.org??

the previous version of this game, we were using the atc.org site.

I knew this would add to the confusion.

At this point I don't think it will matter what site we use Mech, at least I hope not.


You are right, this would add so much confusion to the whole game, I just don't see them doing this atm.

Oh ya, by the way, when I saw this thread had bumped, it said S.O. was the last poster, that is the whole reason I went straight to the thread thinking he had a date set for the game restart, but instead there was that cryptic post... then the name changed to "The Eye".

O RLY?!?!

Hmmm.....

I am assuming that there may be other inserted entries on other posts, with further clues. But where to begin, is the question.

So far today, I have breifly browsed the threads that have been replied to today, but nothing that stands out.

It will most likely be by accident that someone finds the next clue.

I also browsed some of the recent threads in the Games forum, to no avail.

Searching......

Anybody notice when you try an answer "99 is the number" changes to something else. I can't tell what it is though.

EDIT: I wish I could type well.

Yeah, that is the old background image.

It used to say



"/[input].html"

But it is a little obscured now

www.abovetopsecret.com...

They are trying to be funny now.




Next clue:




[you were already told what to say to the eye]




from my post linked above.

*to the doubters* no I didn't post that, it was inserted.


So now I assume that the clue is in one of the phrases on the game site.

Now for some more analysis.

That was a quick response from Admin.

No more than fifteen minutes ago I sent a suggestion that the game be advertised a bit better.

Just now received a mass u2u Official Announcement.



with a link to www.alltheconspiracies.com

notice the particular domain name. (different than last time.)

w00t!

Good, we need some sharp minds here.

It appears that allthelies.info has some "info" on it. check it out. Its different than allthelies.org.

Hope that helps..

Actually not. It still has the coding for the completed game, ALLtheUFOanswers.

It is one of the domain name prizes, but it it not a clue.

hrm...

well what am I missing then?

I have all the sites listed open, and they are all the same.

They do call a strange _javascript file from www.google-analytics.com/urchin.js - I wonder what that is?

I wonder what the deal is.

It's got to have something to do with "knowing what to ask and to ask what to know" to kick this thing off. ( I think)
