This topic will contain all clues until now for people who are just getting started and want the bare information. I don't want any interpretations or solutions in this thread.

    all shall join the hunt
    four strangers will unite
    four voices will merge
    ignorance is denied

  • The following text is added below the picture:

    Deny ignorance. The motto of AboveTopSecret.com is simple yet inspires a complex range of emotion and aspiration. Are you simply one who follows along? Perhaps you enjoy participating in the effort. But maybe, just maybe you have the desire to push the battle cry forward, and be a captain of enlightenment.

    This hunt is for you.

One thing I don't get, and I'll post this in the other thread as well.

This is obviously going to be a competition, so why the hell are you sharing your clues with the rest of the board. My team have already made huge advances past these clues, do you see us posting them?

These threads are stupid, the competition is on my friends.

A team can't watch that page all day long. By sharing the clues that are visible on the site, everyone gets the clues they would have found if they were online at that time. I do not and will not share the solutions and I think sharing the clues is only fair play.

BTW, very well done if you solved some of those clues already. Within a day is pretty fast!

This is what the binary says:

there will be several clues to help you understand they will come in good time but you must pay attention as some will be short lived

My question, Why all these threads for the same thing.

This atleast the third, you can put the info in the same thread.

One thought, and I'm totally just throwing this out there, since I'm very, very new at the code-breaking thing...

if the alt-image number is in fact a key...why don't we just replace all the 4's with 5s?

just my thinking on this:

it says the search starts 5-2004.

it's now 4-2004, so maybe 4=5?

I don't know, just an idea I had.
