    With respect to the builder's keystone date on the building shown on page 56 of the book -- I am of the humble opinion that it is simply a "red herring", and has nothing to do with the answers to the puzzle

Even the moderators of the site have not been able to reach anyone "official" from Camelot.

    Besides that, people have been questioning the validity of the hunt, as some "hot spots" seem to come and go. Some hot spots appear once you solve a puzzle, which is understandable. But there seem to be others that appear and disappear. Were they there all along? Do the authors add hot spots when they feel like it? The question had been posted on the official forum as to whether the hunt was solvable or not. People questioned if there were some hot spots that were not activated because the authors were waiting until their ebook sales were high enough to cover the price of what it cost to pay out the prize money.

    What bothered me the most was that no one from the official Camelot group had posted anything on the Camelot site for a long, long while. Where were they? Why didn't they come on to the forum to address the glitches? Why didn't they answer people's PMs to them, especially the moderator's PMs? Why didn't someone from Camelot address the questions people were having about the hunt being legitimate?

    Today, I went to the forum, and it is no longer there! A screen comes up that says that page does not exist! And it links you to the ebook.

    Is the forum under construction? Are they addressing the questions people have had? Are they "erasing" the questions people have had about the legitimacy of their hunt? The ebook is still up and running. Does anyone else think this is strange?
    Earlier this week I submitted a solution to the puzzle from the official site and have not yet received a response. It is very worrying that the book is still been offered for sale.

    Well, well, well ....... Isn't that a fine kettle of fish?

    Thanks go out to --> QueenIsis <-- for uncovering that tidbit of information. Apparently, they've chosen to display a posh facade to attract clients and business.

    Hope we're not left holding an empty fish and chips wrapper ......

    O Dear! No real address. That's worrying! I have also submitted an answer...that was about 10 days ago and I have not had a reply...also worrying.
    I really hate it when this happens. It was such a good puzzle and all THIS is such a shame.

    It is a shame indeed, Truth. However, I could cope with it better if we got some response or a statement. I have, today, written to PapaArte as Rob has not repied, so I await an answer

    I too submitted a guess a few days ago, just to see if I would get a reply. In the past, I would get a reply in 24-48 hours. But as I said, it has been a few days, and I have heard nothing.

    It would be nice if they could at least address what is going on...

    The Treasure of Camelot main site news thread carries an interview with David Whitley from Radio Norfolk. He interviews Rob Clews one of the authors/developers of the hunt. I have emailed him this morning to see if he is interested in finding out what is happening to Treasure of Camelot as his image is used so prominently in promoting it. I have explained the technical problems and lack of response and disappearance of the forum. It may come to nothing but I will obviously inform you if I hear anything.

    Regards my post attached, I have had a response from David Whitley as soon as he came off air. He thanked me for alerting him to it and he will look into it during next week.

    To QueenIsis --

    Congratulations on your inspired thought. The "stock in trade" of any radio commentator is not only their voice, but their "believability". To be associated with promoting something that is less than honest could easily sound the death knell for his livelihood. Hopefully we will have some meaningful communication on this matter within a fortnight ....
