1. Sierra,

I agree. Don't give up.

I'm not clear the new clue should be taken literally.... Like the other clues, a little "adjustment" will help find a different message.

Hey, don't give up! Those 20 people probably did something random like putting in all odd numbers first. There are many, many combinations...some peeps have to have inadverdantly struck gold...silver....paydirt

Ok.. I will have to start from scratch since if it's so easy I must be making it complicated.

it's not that it's easy....it's just that there aren't that many people playing.....your odds are incredible!

Something like that is possible. Or, it's implying there is at least one sequence of size 6. But then you run into issues with any simple explanation for "answer is divided into equal parts".

I'm still stumped by this "6 problem", and it's causing big problems in my progress. I have lots of information, but I'm not sure if I'm looking for a beginning sequence of length 5,6, or 10. There are all sorts of reasons and evidence to believe that any of those three are possible. And until you know that for sure, you might as well just submit random solutions, because some of the other important clues are only useful if you know the size.
