    I submitted a solution this morning before the clue was posted, but I don't think it was me because I have no idea how today's clue is relevant.

    The 'Germanys' sound like another East and West sort of hint, but I don't know what to think about their capitals, Bonn and Berlin.

    Congratulations to the winner!

    Gammon,

    There's nothing posted anywhere that I'm seeing. Where did that information originate? I would think they would make that sort of announcement VERY publicly.

    Doc, as previously indicated, I learned from an email from Ron from rejected submissions.

    To be clear, I copied and pasted the body of that email. I received my rejections at 6:20 pm cst.

    And, as indicated with respect to Ron not posting this info publicly, "That's Ron, right?!"

    Need I explain that? Ok, here goes: Ron's incompetent. And lazy. And thoroughly disrespectful to us contestants. Always has been, always will be.

    Am I the only person who has received this notice of a winner for chapter 3? Has anybody else received such a notice?

    But why wouldn't he release this information to everyone? It seems strange that it was only given to people who had made incorrect submissions, what's the point of trying to solve the chapter if it's already been won?

    I received an incorrect submission email at 01:20 Spanish time which made me a bit sad to know that Chapter 3 was solved. Then I realised that I made another submission last night about midnight using the new clue, There is still some hope )

    Doc,

    For what it's worth, which at this point is not much, there are 16 state capitals in Germany.

    Dunno... I received a rejection note last night stating that C3 had been won. I do have one outstanding submission from yesterday, but I had very little confidence in it because it seemed to me that the Germany clue entirely invalidated my approach.

    Morrigan,

    Thanks for that information. That makes me think the first sixteen and the 'final four' were treated differently for some reason, similar to the missing two for Chapter 2.
