    Whenever there is a format hint, it should be followed. So, in this case the 'or' is in fact lower case. One side hint for players: When there are two answers separated by either an 'and' or an 'or', the order of the answers are alphabetical.

    Good Luck!

    Has anyone solved the Riddle? It does not have a count saying that anyone solved it yet. But it could be that HH is just not providing a counter for this one.

    The Riddled Hunt now shows the number of players who answered it correctly so far.

    As of this reply, the number is at 0 - but we're optimistic that someone will solve it.

    Good Luck!

    Whats going on with the point values? I have answered every possible question and find I am 50 points behind - how can that be? Arent all the point values equal? Are some folks getting more questions to answer? I even had 100 points from the first riddle hunt as a starting bonus...

    A couple of other suggestions:

    Would like to see my answered questions and answers somewhere for reference.

    A list of possible top scores per section/total would be good to see how far off the mark we are.

    Finally, A list of more than the top 3 would be good to the clustering of scores

    thanks

    Maybe I shouldn't say anything, but sometimes I just can't help myself. This is in reply to stvwz, #1 - so far we haven't needed the answers for the questions for any kind of reference, so if you're too lazy to write them down, I feel that's your own fault, besides the only reason I can think of that you'd need them is to give them to someone else, and that's cheating. #2 - this hunt is free, it's there to entertain, educate, and enthrall us, so why would you complain? and no, i'm in no way affiliated with HH, those who know me on here know that i've been doing armchair hunts forever. Just be careful what you say, when people start complaining, then things just disappear, or end, so keep in mind that it's free, and supposed to be fun.

    Default Histrorical Hunt - Point Discrepancies

    When we released our Internet Hunt on February 10, a glitch was found by one of our players. Unfortunately, the glitch was not found during testing and we released the hunts with it in place.

    The glitch occurred on several questions in which the questions were not removed from a player's list when answered correctly. Therefore, players can answer the same question over and over again, accumulating 'extra' points. Some players did and accumulated these 'extra' points (whether intentional or accidental is not known). One player brought this to our attention and it was quickly fixed.

    We then conducted a full audit on all the players and their points at that time, and adjusted their point bank accordingly. The audit was done quickly as to not disrupt the current game. However, now that our hunts have leveled off for the time being, another audit will be done on every players' point bank.

    Crys-My post was not meant in any way to be complaining - just the opposite. The folks at HH have been great and responsive to the Tweleve and puzzling community, and their product is by far one of the best I have seen on line - They asked for suggestions, and mine are only that. If it is felt by them and the bulk of puzzlers that adding in a feature would be detrimental to the hunt experience or could cause sharing, then thats a legitimate concern and I am sure they would filter them accordingly. I for one am having a great time working on these - and you are right - they are fun, free and educational.

    HH has responded that there was a glitch and they are working to solve it - I am OK with that as I know they have been 100% true to their word on all aspects of their hunt.

    Good luck to you and thanks for your feedback.

    You shouldn't....

    We all have been here doing armchair treasure hunts for a long time. And we all are enjoying this hunt.

    stvwz was not the only one who noticed a discrepancy with the scores. In fact I made similar suggestions also. If you read back in the posts, you will see that I wrote that it would be nice to be able to see the total amount of points possible for each hunt. And I also wrote that it would be nice to see more than just the top three scores.

    Thank you for addressing this, HH.

    Have to agree with stvwz and Genetic Blend on the points issue. After finally spending some serious 'me' time over the past couple of days researching this hunt, I checked the dashboard to see where my investment brought me (current Rank = 14). If I could answer the remaining questions and add the point totals to my current score, I wouldn't even crack the top 3, even if I had started out with 100 bonus points (which I did not)! I'm not blaming HH, I've had fun and learned a lot of neat things, which is always the true goal of any hunt. However, the game is over just as it was gaining steam, my only hope for a prize would be to answer each and every question and be the only one to successfully solve the riddle clue. Perhaps HH could add another question to the Abandoned Theme Hunt where the answer is "DLester", but the point total would have to be 0 as I just gave it away!!

    Best of luck to the leaders and any of you who still have a shot, my attention now returns to other hunts placed on the back burner while I researched some pretty interesting history!!
