Another possible clue can be seen in the alt text for the picture. Just leave the cursor on the image of the ring for a moment, and you'll see...
"38973 23 00346 2134 087310 783247 728 81723 721873"

I noticed this too, I've been playing with the numbers but have nothing yet.

I found the code a few hours ago, but decided not to post it on request of a certain staff member, but I guess since you posted it anyway, I'll post my conclusions.

It is no simple substition cypher. This is because you can't find a find in English with the combination JJDFI. It also it is not a Vigenere or Beaufort cypher. Maybe a polyalphabetic cypher? A polyalphabetic cypher is almost impossible to solve without any other information. A normal substition cypher has 26! possibilities. A polyalphabetic cypher with with two keys has (26!)^2 possiblities. That's an enormous number.

The number code is probably not ASCII, Hex, alphabetic or mod-alphabetic. I think we need more hints to solve it.

The jpg's on the site are not stegged with secret text files either. I used jphide and stegdetect and both found nothing.

I think everyone should keep their solutions to themselves. It is much more fun to do it yourself or in small teams.

I like the small teams idea...

Teams of 4 people ? how does that sound and would that be okay with the Mods if we did it this way ?

Yeah, actually small teams sounds good. What about me, elevated, Tau boy, and someone else? forming teams actually might increase the competition factor.

I think you are actually supposed to make teams of four. The text does hint in that direction. I would to share my findings until now with someone.

Wow, a new hint on the 'find the rings'-page. This is like the fastest moving ARG ever:


1 + 1 + 1 + 1 = ?


The comment has changed as well to:

Only four words I could find, all not good in the rest of the text:

ocyt
oozes
oomph
oonts

That's why I think it's a polyaphabetic cypher or another complicated cypher.

Thrain is Tauboy! Tau symbol in his avvie. But we'll take amatine. The first ATS quartet- amantine, ED, me, and Thrain.

Now, I need industrial-grade painkillers.
