    Talking

    DAR has made us all paranoid !!!! Or maybe a better word would be cautious about giving our heart & souls to a hunt that held us under it's spell for YEARS only to crash & burn! Believe me- Team Meaner Simikkles really debated about getting into this hunt after that, and now we really are enjoying the challenges( and frustrations!) WE CAN DO IT!!!!!

    So.... I've had all the questions completed for a little bit now....

    I've spent time looking back at the chapters, poems, and questions. There are lots of "things" to investigate - but nothing has produced any useful results yet. All the optic cross and "spam mail" clues seemed to apply to the Chapter questions themselves.

    Haven't found a next step yet....

    Hmmmmm. Wondering if we have to wait for the Author to release clues that relate to the next step !

    The map is a little different than the maps in the other chapters. Some people (myself included) do benefit from knowing the "layout" in advance... even if that part of the contest isn't even open. In a contest of speed having information before others is always beneficial.
    Are you saying that you can access the final map after having answered all questions? I am not able to.

    This sounds a bit like a hack - how can one know a "layout in advance". Is this "information" available to anyone who has unlocked a certain previous portion of the hunt or was it supplied as a hint or what?

    First - Congrats Molnar !

    Second - I believe this WAS a website glitch. If you read the rules, I get the impression the final map will not be available until after ALL the silver eagles from the Chapters have been won. At that time the hunt for the Golden Eagle will start.

    For several weeks you could open the last map once you got all of the questions answered. They locked it only a few days ago. When I try to open it now it says that each of the chapter maps have to be solved first. Opening the map was not a hack or a clue sent out. I guess as mentioned above it was just a website glitch. I know of several other people who also had access though, so it was not just my log-in.

    Well, I hope that you would agree now, that it is a bit unfair. I didn't begrudge anyone having access to it before, but now that no one else can see it upon completion, I do.

    I haven't yet decided how big of an issue I want to make of this. Perhaps I will wait to hear an official response about how they plan to atone for this screw-up before proceeding.

    Well just finished all of the questions and I think I'm with you Molnar. I can't see the map and I'm a little upset that others have. Especially since my book was two weeks late at the beginning and I was behind then as well, there just hasn't seemed to be a consistant level playing field.

    Unhappy

    OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! That's not good! What a glitch to have! has anyone contacted the powers that be to let them know?? Or ask them if the map accessed would be the ONLY map accessible for 13 1/2? It gives an unfair advantage to those who accessed it to be able to have seen the layout, wording etc. NOT good!

    This question could be posed in another way.... did seeing the Chapter Map after finishing all the questions in that Chapter help you in any way? Are there any clues on those maps?

    My answer to date is a resounding NO ! lol
