    Welcome to Tweleve, Aaron, and thanks for the invite. I checked it out. Brave of you to put something like this on a forum where people aren't really into codes. What are Superpoke Pets anyways? I had to giggle a little of all the posts asking "What the heck am I supposed to do with this? What's a cipher?" Lol! Well you came to the right place. Here you have some of the best of the best! (Wish I was in the category. ) Anyways, I think I've figured out your hints, but I haven't had any time to see how they apply to the puzzle yet. Looking forward to working on it. Thanks again!

    Default Which is the "front page"?

    Been all over the green links, but nothing sticks out. Which page is referenced as having a link come up 1/10 times?

    Default New Clue

    Due to problems with the webads - The key has been given as ADSBYGOOGLE.

    I have got a start on how this fits with the coded message on top, but haven't seen the relation to spice girls or Tony Danza to solve the pictograph or lower coded text.

    Haven't had a good chance to look at it yet. Tried a few things with the code. Doesn't seem to be a viginere. What were you thinking, Steve?

    Aaron gave out a clue which says the key is ADSBYGOOGLE. Well, get rid of "BY" and fit the remainder to the double letter sets near the key. The 5x5 grid looks familiar to trovers. The next code word is revealed, pointing to a book and a certain chapter. The sketch then makes sense. Now I must figure out the bottom, but so far all I get is gibberish, perhaps that is a vigniere. Take a look and let me know what you think

    I'm a little confused how you are working this. If I understand which 5x5 grid you are meaning, we would need sets of numbers to get the letters (ie. 5,4 3,2 etc.) ADSGOOGLE does fit length for a vigenere but doesn't get anything. How are you aplying this keyword? PM me if you don't want to give it away to everyone. Meanwhile, I'll keep looking at but I have to go to bed.
