Bah! I have gotten so far! But I still seem to need the same information I figured I'd need since the beginning!
Title: Re: HUNT 3-8
Post by: DirtyMaggieMae on January 16, 2008, 11:04:34 PM
far?  i've gotten far enough to read the same thing 10 times over!
Title: Re: HUNT 3-8
Post by: lauren27 on January 16, 2008, 11:06:17 PM
i submitted :)
i didn't find a bonus code, i just wanted to submit my answer asap (cause i'm hoping to get a lot of points, and i have a lot of other important stuff i really should be doing)
Title: Re: HUNT 3-8
Post by: DirtyEarl on January 17, 2008, 01:19:57 AM
Submitted myself.   hopefully didn't miss anything.   
Title: Re: HUNT 3-8
Post by: scottmhoward on January 17, 2008, 11:14:58 AM
I submitted a bonus code.

I think I may be wrong though.

Do you think "Hi! =D" is right?  lol
Title: Re: HUNT 3-8
Post by: DirtyEarl on January 17, 2008, 11:57:32 AM
Yeah, that's 5 characters, bonus codes are only 4.    sorry

haha, I like that hint.  Cleverly written. ;D  A lot better wording than i thought it was going to be (I was pretty sure this is what the first hint was going to be)
Title: Re: HUNT 3-8
Post by: joshzam on January 17, 2008, 10:07:49 PM
I figured out what the first clue was going to tell us 6 minutes before it told us. Grr. I'm submitting an answer now but I can't find the bonus...
Title: Re: HUNT 3-8
Post by: DevilishinVA on January 17, 2008, 10:15:16 PM
I'm still stuck. I found a bonus code but my answer doesn't go with what I found that hint #1 refers to. I sent Sledge & Astro a pm telling them where I was stuck. Then a hour later, found something else. So I think I might have the right answer but not confident with it. I'll probably submit tomorrow because it'll drive me crazy until I do. Then the waiting for the solution, ugh.
Title: Re: HUNT 3-8
Post by: Ladybug on January 17, 2008, 10:36:42 PM
wow.  i actually think i figured one out.  but no bonus, i have no idea.
Title: Re: HUNT 3-8
Post by: DirtyMaggieMae on January 17, 2008, 10:45:47 PM
man!  why is it that i just stumble my way through these things?  i find something out then get stuck for a loooong time.  man!
Title: Re: HUNT 3-8
Post by: chrisadams888 on January 17, 2008, 11:50:52 PM
I was going to give up when I was completely stumped with the last hunt, but the pull of the hunt is too strong!  :)  I actually think I figured this one out, too, so I guess it's good I didn't give up!  I submitted just now.  Now the agony of waiting!
Title: Re: HUNT 3-8
Post by: DirtyMaggieMae on January 18, 2008, 12:21:07 PM
boy i hope 12 people didn't get right answers yet!  well....y'know...i want you all to do well but i want another hint!  to double check...y'know?  anyhow, if you get a bonus code right but you submit it after 12 people do you still get the point?

yes.  that's the only way i have points

Post by: scottmhoward on January 18, 2008, 04:34:04 PM
for as long as submitting is possible, you will get your bonus code points.  Same with the answers.  As long as you submit it, you will score.  Even if you're number 18th to submit the correct answer it will still be 'tallied'.  you'll get a bonus point, but you just obviously won't get any points for the hunt answer (unless after 2, 1, 0, he goes into negatives) ;D

 i think that for the first time the 1st hint helped me LOL

* i have to admit i haven't had much time for the hunt lately....*
Title: Re: HUNT 3-8
Post by: Sweet Old Lady on January 18, 2008, 06:01:57 PM
I figured out hint 1.  I'm slow today!
Title: Re: HUNT 3-8
Post by: Sweet Old Lady on January 18, 2008, 06:51:53 PM
I submitted.  I didn't get a bonus code.
Title: Re: HUNT 3-8
Post by: pauinha6 on January 18, 2008, 08:52:18 PM
 i submited too, but i'm not at all sure about my answer..... i feel i have only taken 2 steps out of... who knows how many... but i didn't know where to go next and i got no bonus code.....

well, i didn't wanna do like in the star of Bethlehem and have the answer since day one and submit only in day 5 or something and get no points......

my goal this hunt was to get 1 point.... i still have hopes LOL

It's really pretty funny reading through this thread. Everybody is being really really vague, and yet we all know exactly what the other means.

It looks like either the hint is delayed until tomorrow or enough Q's have gotten it right. The tension seems to be building in the storyline.
Title: Re: HUNT 3-8
Post by: AstroJones on January 19, 2008, 03:18:16 AM
yeah, I'll go ahead and confirm for you guys, there have been at least 12 correct answers submitted now, so there won't be any more hints.  Hopefully Sledge can get the solution posted sometime this weekend for you all to see. 
Title: Re: HUNT 3-8
Post by: DirtyMaggieMae on January 19, 2008, 04:30:40 PM
Good work guys! Good to know that we will be seeing some many names on the board this week!  I know I was too late, I came on yesterday at 9 or something to check and see if a second hint would validate my answers, but there was no second hint!  I submitted a bonus code, so hopefully that will be good enough.
Title: Re: HUNT 3-8
Post by: Ladybug on January 19, 2008, 11:25:06 PM
i may have actually got something right!!  hopefully if i did, i submitted soon enough to get points.
Title: Re: HUNT 3-8
Post by: pauinha6 on January 19, 2008, 11:28:30 PM
 i submited but prolly not soon eneough, besides, prolly another worng answer.... sigh
Title: Re: HUNT 3-8
Post by: Sweet Old Lady on January 19, 2008, 11:45:01 PM
I was late.  I don't expect to get points this time.  It's funny, though, because this might have been the easiest one yet.  Unless I'm wrong.
Title: Re: HUNT 3-8
Post by: pauinha6 on January 20, 2008, 12:14:44 AM
 my believe is that the one of the star was the easiest and i failed to get points and decided not to put the bonus code in, which i woulda got right, so....

i only want one point sledge, ONE!!!
Title: Re: HUNT 3-8
Post by: lauren27 on January 23, 2008, 06:17:21 PM
i'm really looking forward to seeing the answer posted tonight! i submitted early enough to get points, i'm just not sure i submitted the right answer...i'm afraid i made a mistake on the last step (again)

4 more hours =)
Title: Re: HUNT 3-8
Post by: Sweet Old Lady on January 23, 2008, 08:14:01 PM
There's a last step?
Title: Re: HUNT 3-8
Post by: scottmhoward on January 23, 2008, 09:47:14 PM
Oh.  My.  God. I'm actually in the top 5!  Now if I get the next hunt right first, with a bonus code AND a super bonus code and nobody in places 1 through 4 get it right, I just might win! lol...

fat chance, right? ;D

but at least I had fun! And I hope you all did as well!
Title: Re: HUNT 3-8
Post by: Sweet Old Lady on January 23, 2008, 09:54:12 PM
I got it right, but no points.  But I GOT IT RIGHT!
Title: Re: HUNT 3-8
Post by: DirtyMaggieMae on January 23, 2008, 10:06:35 PM
Good job!  I had the answer, but it didn't seem as OBVIOUS as some of the other ones, you know?  Like the 'name the woman on the boat' thing if LOST related could have been Naomi or Danielle.  I went for naomi but wasn't really sure.  Like, what the deal with the 'wd' in the upper corner by the dharma logo?  I thought that was going to be the initials for a while, but i couldn't think of anyone.  So I looked around for 'wd' for a while, then just decided poo on it- I'll submit naomi.  Far to late of course!  I found the bonus code right away when I played around with the contrast on photosnap, I just needed an answer to go along with it!  By the way, that image is right on Isabel island, you can see it from googlemaps pretty easily.  Good work guys!  It's good to see all those names on the board!
Title: Re: HUNT 3-8
Post by: CaseyMac on January 23, 2008, 10:46:34 PM
I was pretty surprised I got the 10 pts. I couldn't find the bonus code, but I figured other people would be submitting pretty quickly. So I thought I had a better chance at getting an extra point by submitting early, than spending more time looking.

I'm glad I did because I needed every point to close the gap on DirtyQ, and now the scores couldn't be much closer. It's pretty funny though because I'm poised to finish in 2nd place yet again this year. Always the bridesmaid, never the bride (er I mean groom).

I'm really looking forward to next week now: The conclusion of the Agent Q story, now the sprint to the Hunt finish line, and then of course the Season Premiere.

Lost ftw!

I found the bonus code by playing with the contrast of the photo, i was thinking all along there'd be a hidden button (there was a hunt last year where you clicked the eye or something and it took you to the next page (of course, the next page then was also the B page, so. . . .))  where was I?

Oh, I darkened the page trying to find something that stood out, and the # of lines between paragraphs "lit up", so I figured thats as close to a bonus code as possible (and it also darkened up the lower right corner).

YAY!  I GOT IT RIGHT!@!
