    Default RUSFUL (legally) IS OFFICIALY NOT FOUND!

    According to the rules, which state that if the token is not claimed to have been found within 30 days of the token's claim of being found, Rufsul is still on the loose! Keep on looking, folks!

    Yarr,

    I thought it was withing 30 days of being missing. I could be wrong though... I don't have my book infront of me.

    It's 30 days from when the author notices it's missing. Since MS most likely won't be checking that site very frequently, it most likely could be missing for quite a while before he notices. Whomever finds it could probably just hold on to it for a long time, until it shows up as "missing" on the web site, and then know they've got 30 days.

    Yeah, that rule always confused me. What is the point of having the rule if they don't check it very often?

    Default The purpose of the rule

    many of the sites are never checked. In fact it is questionable if any of them were ever checked.

    Please recall that the Spider finders waited quite awhile before announcing their find. Partly, they hoped to have an advantage in finding what remained, but different finders could have different intentions. MS has acknowledged that it was also in his interest to keep things under wraps for awhile. That same logic still applies.

    I think the rule is mainly there to protect MS from any embarrassing situations. Say, someone found the last token, but didn't hand it in. Still, they went on talk shows and showed off the token, but refused to hand it in since payout is still a long way off. This would leave MS in a protracted limbo state. So the 30 day limit prevents this. I think that's all the rule is intended to do.

    So we really have to depend on verification through Tweleve. If someone makes a claim, then let them post their solution and let's see if it adds up. Let them post the token picture and tell their story. fake stories are quickly revealed with details.

    What if they post a pic of the token but don't tell the story of how they found it? That's what's going on with Rusful....

    I posted this topic when Seekingtreasure made his fake post about Rusful. This post has nothing to do with this find. I think that this is it, but whoever found it better hurry, only two weeks left...

    two weeks left for what? They've probably called in and given MS everything, and now we're all just being forced to wait for the big media opportunity.
