    Anyone else still working on this? I have tried everything I can think of (granted, that's not saying much) and am stumped. Originally I thought the clues must have something to do with the coin images, and pen and ink and other stuff drawn on the pages, but since that has all disappeared in the site redesign, and the scrollquest folks say the clues are still there, that must have been the wrong avenue.

    I've searched the html code for all the pages to no avail, with nothing that suggests a coded message in them. That leads me to believe that we have to guess the correct url where we will find the next clue. I've tried hundreds of urls, with nothing but a lot of 404 errors.

    I think it's going to turn out to be something like: list all the web pages on the site by alphabetical order, count the number of non-breaking spaces included in the html of each page, convert that number to a letter of the alphabet, atbash the result, caesar shift it 5 places, run it through a 3-deep rail cipher, run the result through a vigenere cipher with SQ as the key, atbash it again, take every third letter of the result, add .htm to the end of it, and that is the url where you will find the clue to the next silver coin. Or we could wait until they give up on us and post the next clue.

    The prior hunts were hidden in different ways, there were direct links, text hidden in the same color as the background and I seem to recall a url special for one of them too, so who knows how they hid the remaining two, but if they are still there after all the changes that have happened in the site they probably are hidden in their own pages.

    Default ok so to beat a dead horse

    Im guessing the clues are still there and I think I am on to something but need a crash course in HTML. Anyone care to recommend a good website for the HTML illiterate. Or maybe you live far from DC and want to share the glory. Or maybe the clues are all gone and Im just dumb. lol.

    Thanks, Jay

    Could we get an update as to the two clues?

    Are they still hidden on the scrollquest website?

    Thanks;

    Look for clues 4 and 5 soon for the public, or be intensely groovy and try to find them on our website, where they're still hidden.

    I could only find the popup that Holli has mentioned. I have not yet located actual clues 4 or 5 yet.
