    I had been checking the forum periodically for anything new, and I believe it was up just a couple of weeks ago.

    If they have disappeared for good, that really stinks. But even worse for me, I hate not finding out the methodologies used and answers!

    Default Another Hunt Gone Bad ...............

    I'm going to attempt to contact Rob Clews (probably a pseudonym) and get the full information. If I get a response, (or if not after a period of time), I'll post it here. I think that many of our people here were very close to the answer, and it's really a darned shame

    Hi OceanArcher,

    This is the email that I used to contact Rob when the site was up, when I had login problems, but if they don't have the TOC server up it may not work.

    Both of the servers (TOC & Papaarte) are down, the Facebook and Twitter accounts are still active, but have not be used for some time.

    Hi Shrek --


    Thanks for the confirmation on TOC and Papaarte servers. I've sent my eMail to Rob's personal server/website that he uses for business. If I get no reply, I guess I could always attempt to phone him, although I don't know just how much a phone call from here in the states to his office in GreatBritian would cost .... just thinkin' out loud.

    Hi,

    I thought maybe they had taken it down because there were no correct claims within the deadline. But having seen the rules that someone published on another forum it doesn't look as though it had a deadline, at least not a published one anyway.

    Very sad

    Default I just sent this to Blue Custard

    Dear Sirs

    You are acknowledging Treasure of Camelot in your portfolio and I note that Rob Clews is involved with you.

    Many people paid good money to Rob Clews to take part in a treasure hunt. Many people are still working on said hunt but it has now been removed from the internet along with its associate forum. Surely if the hunt has been suspended, then Mr Clews should be making an announcement and informing subscribers how they can obtain a refund due to the hunt that they paid for being cancelled without notice.

    Thank you

    Patricia Allen

    from Treasure Of Camelot


    The Treasure Of Camelot.

    Since the launch of the Treasure Of Camelot, the game has been besieged by people determined to cheat the system. An enormous amount of time has been spent every week implementing new security systems and monitoring activity on the site. However, the hackers and cheats have persisted. Various pages of the book which should only be viewed after unlocking puzzles were being accessed, giving these people a distinct unfair advantage over others.

    The forum was setup to provide a platform for people to discuss ideas and the puzzles. This, again, was besieged by spammers and very quickly became difficult to monitor. A few of the forum members kindly offered to act as moderators and they shared our frustrations. Several times, the forum actually fell over due to the sheer volume of spam attacks. The exact same thing has happened with the email server whereas thousands of spam emails per hour are targeting the website.

    More recently, a series of vicious cyber attacks have been targeting the server, the game code and the databases, despite all of the server security measures in place. The last attempt on the server resulted in a complete server shutdown and complete corruption of the main databases.

    It is such a shame that, after many, many years of work putting the Treasure Of Camelot puzzle together, it has been completely ruined by a handful of people determined to cheat and spoil it for everyone else. It is with great sadness we announce that the Treasure Of Camelot will be offline for the foreseeable future due to the fact that it has been severely compromised beyond repair.
