I…I don’t understand.
Of course, I barely read any of the posts. In fact, mostly just the first post.

Y’know, if anyone’s still playing this, and you’re waiting on a response from someone who’s not getting back to you, let me know via Tubmail. Send me your results and who you’re trying to contact, and if you’re right, I’ll send you the next clue.
I’m still on Stage 9. Vuron, any luck yet?

No I honestly had largely forgotten about it.

Factoid: Tom was born in a cold place, therefore Tom’s mom drank a LOT of booze when she was pregnant to stay warm. Therefore Tom was born a retard. The world makes sense again. Neeeext…...

So. I’m not sure what the status of this contest is. I see that it is still stickied. Is anybody still running it?

PANTS is still running it. Only question is, is anyone still playing it?

Looks like Vuron is the winner, congratulations! Hope you got the secret before PANTS was banned.
Markchd, will you take care of your payment? I’ll ask ET to handle PANTS’s part.

So what are the answers?

With pants gone, this may take some time to reconstruct. Watch this space for the problem and solution for Stage 7. Details on any other stages will have to be reconstructed/released by the people who wrote those stages if they so choose.

stage 7 solution:
the RGB values for the 6 colors from left to right are
1. R=1 G=48 B=33
2. R=4 G=30 B=82
3. R=9 G=63 B=21
4. R=3 G=46 B=23
5. R=0 G=67 B=72
6. R=7 G=38 B=33
The hint’s values are R=5 G=43 B=21
So that should let you know that the RGB values are important and should be reversed. At any rate, that was my intention.
First step in decoding:
The RGB values for each color, when joined and reversed, represent a character ID number in ForumWarz. For example: R=1 G=48 B=33 joined is 14833 and reverses to 33841.
Finding the hidden message:
I don’t know of many ways to find a character by ID in this game, but one is to add the ID number to this url http://www.forumwarz.com/inbox/send_tubmail/ EX. 1: http://www.forumwarz.com/inbox/send_tubmail/33841 opens a new tubmail to Maladjusted Pike, one of my many multis.
The six characters can be found by visiting
The message is contained in the bio section of these character’s profiles.
To view the profile for each character, simply add the name from the “Send Tubmail to” line to the end of the URL: http://www.forumwarz.com/profiles/
In the bio section of those pages:
It’s a simple cipher(ROT13), but the words are reversed.
Simple solution: plug each word into http://www.rot13.com/ and get:
A little logic later, you’ll see the answer: “tubmail phiianthropist pbumword melting rotunda”
If you tubmailed the phrase “melting rotunda” to phiianthropist ( http://www.forumwarz.com/profiles/phiianthropist ) he would send you Stage 8
I wouldn’t expect any answer now, as his account was disabled shortly after Vuron won.
