My guess is that Doomer is some sort of villain (possibly Boomer's evil twin brother) that wants to destroy all things OU.... or Boomer has turned to the dark side and IS Doomer! Oh, the suspense! :lol:

:lol:

As Sledge said, it isn't really that hard. In fact, we already had people figure it out. Try not to over complicate it and I'm sure you'll get it. I'd be worried about the final clue however, haha.

For the record, we did test the Quest before it went public and 2 people completed it sooooo.....

Good luck. :P

OK so I figured out what I am suppose to figure out, but when I type it in the URL box, either there are a bunch of CAPS in this url or I am just not doing it right, again. I found out what it IS but I am probably not being specific enough...

UGH

This is Jacob's mom and he just went crazy. Honestly, he just ran outside and kicked. Then said "Bleep you, you made me this way. All of you made me this way." Then he started screaming something about a website, called Orlando United. I noticed that on his web browser it was still open and I think your Quest is cruel and mean. Honestly it's just evil.

WHAT KIND OF SICK GAME IS THIS?!

S-s-simple, they said. They all said it was reeeeeal easy. Like killing people. Yeah. B-b-boomer told me.... '5234', he said, 'force of evil', he said. 'You'll get those tickets in no time!' Well, y'know what, he's wrong. Th-the tickets ain't coming. N-no Mardi Gras. MC Hammer, he-oh. YOU...... *points gun at your face*

Finish the story for yourself, that's how I am right now. :lol:

So r there gonna be actual visual clues like letters bolded or we just have to find the answer if u get what i'm, saying.

02-27-2009, 11:03 PM
It becomes more than just putting in the correct answer.

BTW, you have 52 minutes until the first deadline.

Brian told me that there's no time limit, unless it's specified in a particular clue.

Well, that's quite the contradiction.

snoman
02-28-2009, 05:32 PM
well if there was a time limit count me out, and count one broken keyboard in, lol. not really but crap, for a first clue this is friggin hard and I thought I was good at this kind of stuff, I guess not.

BriMan
02-28-2009, 06:09 PM
Well, that's quite the contradiction.

It wasn't really a time line, but more "time to move on" :lol:

The answer by the way, was "posts" or "rankbar".

Good luck to all those who have moved on.

Sledge
02-28-2009, 06:49 PM
Once you get past the first few clues you got a new clue telling you you had until a certain time to give me the password. After the deadline I gave those that gave me the password the next clue, and that's where most are at currently.

I tried to give out a little push in the right direction last night in the "User Rankings" thread to see if it'll click in anyones head to check out our rankbars. :lol:

Lets just say if you had 5234, you'd be a "Force of Evil". What is it?

I think the problem was people were making the question harder than it needed to be. In your case Justin, it was tough luck.
