After a long and winding road that began almost four months ago with this post: www.abovetopsecret.com... The hunt for the rings and the mysterious "convergence" has ended. Now, everyone finally everyone understands the original line that has been so mysterious throughout our game, "All may hunt, four will succeed, four will become one, one will become many, wisdom is the prize." The four "Captains of Enlightenment" who solved the many puzzles to find their ring and the secret words contained have solved the final and most difficult puzzle: www.ignorancedenied.com... Congratulations to all who participated in what was an extremely fun event to watch from the sidelines. I'm sure I can speak for every ATS staff member when I say we're all exceptionally impressed with the highly collaborative and cooperative way this event unfolded. We never expected this aspect, and we now fully realize the amazingly close-knit community we have in this interesting corner of the Internet. Rest assured there will be more events for our members. We've always said that every effort is for the community, even down to the advertising. You can thank the millions of guests who visit ATS every month and experienced the advertising impressions that have funded (nearly) this event for our members. You, our members have created the content that attracts these guests, it's only fair that we do something in return. Stay tuned for the next event.

Seeing as how I was the "Ring Forger"
I was extremely involved with the Hunt on the "backside".

I have to say that the genius I watched unfold as the Hunters ripped through our CRUEL trail of clues amazed me...

To the Captains!
To the Hunters!

Very many congratulations to all competitors - it was fascinating to watch the threads as clues were discussed and debated!


Good luck with the new website - mighty trees from little acorns grow for sure!!

Just wanted to say thank you to all the admins and mods that contributed to the hunt. It was an incredibly fun game that must have took many hours of thought and preparation to pull together. It was by far the best excuse for slacking off work I have found in a while!
Thanks again and I look forward to the next round.

Congradulations to those who found the Rings!

SO, question about the ID board...


Should we go ahead and register there, I mean, if its going to be used for something else? If its going to be deleted soon, I won't bother.

Great! But I still want to know the story behind the hunt. You really should write a text about the organization, the unsolved clues (JJDFI), etc.

Thanks all... This was definately a hard fought one!

Well, my brain is numb. It will take a few days for it to be fully back to operational level.. ha ha ha

But, we already have some very exciting ideas that we are going to be implementing. We want this to become a top site and want to plan this accordingly. So, do not worry, we will not rush a site for the novelty of it. We will plan this carefully. We want to create a site that will compliment ATS and one that you will be proud to be members of. So, Expect alot!

More information will brought forth once we have a solid base. All your suggestions with site ideas over there have been great. Any more ideas would be greatly appreciated! We want this site to ha a bit for everyone.
