I'd like to think that it's a bit harder this time around. Don't get sad if you get stuck. I'll provide a little help daily. Use this topic to discuss. There is no prize, just a sense of entitlement. I guess if you're only interested in recognition, you can brag about participating. But why are you thinking so far ahead if you haven't even found the first clue? I'll give you a hint,
You'll have to work together to solve this one. =)

And for those of you that are new to this, hi. I like mind games. Sometimes I do these scavenger hunt things. Basically, you have to use your extensive knowledge of this site, html, and the rest of the internet in order to progress from clue to clue. Oftentimes, my posts are more than they appear. For example, I occasionally hide messages that cannot be seen normally. The line below this paragraph says "Congrats for finding me!" Search for it in the source code. (helpful hint: ctrl + f makes finding much easier. Also, the post engine automatically adds <br> in the source code every time I return. Ignore it.)

Okay, so far, I've only had one member confirm that they've found anything. Is there honestly no one trying or are the clues too obscure? I can't make it better without feedback...

It's not so much as resourceful as it is you already gave the answer of where to find it.

The first clue leads to a second clue. The resourceful part is concluding what each clue means.

Here's my findings so far, but I'm stuck


1) Clue in title of board (you can see it at the top of your browser or tab)
2) Go to Feedback (help) board and open any topic change the headID number to 53335 so you get Link
3) On that topic (using FF) right click and go to View Page Source and ctrl+F search for the word "edited" from forty-two's post and see the following text in red:
"You have joined [53335].i72.26.203.99: PASSCODE?You: what the hell? listen, the guy just told me that the passcode thing was the title of 135. i72.26.203.99: PASSCODE NOT RECOGNIZED. TERMINATING CONNECTION. //connection lost

WARNING: ERROR CONNECTION TERMINATED PLEASE CONTACT ADMIN, "FORTY-TWO", WITH PASSCODE FOR ASSISTANCE"

And yea I can't find the passcode
