    Riddle me this and riddle me that, Ron and his team will play a critical role in when and if this hunt will continue. It has been 3 months and summer is over.
    With the solution in front of you, you can find hundreds of ways the facebook clues hinted at where to find the solution. But where in the book does it tell us to use +5 and minus 5 and look in the questions to find it?
    I think the stories are just fluff and filler. The questions, cryptex, archives, tools and most importantly, the facebook clues are all that will help you in finding a solution.

    Hopefully we will hear something soon. Maybe friday?

    While they could cancel it, I've always had the impression that Ron's going to finish this hunt in some form or other if it's the last thing he does.

    The chapter intro had that information for the delta cipher.
    Lafitte and his brother Pierre first gained notoriety when they organized a community of smugglers on one of the small delta islands near New Orleans
    I had mentioned this previously, but if you go further and look for the island, you will find what you are looking for, which is your clue to Q14 (the start of omega):

    The cipher for C5 alpha was also in the questions:

    C5Q6 - On the 30th Anniversary of man's landing on the moon, the Liberty Bell 7 space capsule was recovered 5km below the ocean's surface. What was the name of the astronaut who flew it
    Also, at 5 o'clock in the archives:
    C5Q3 - Crazy horse work marks 50

    That combined with the month taken off at the holidays, makes you wonder about the true dedication. And no publicity. I have been assured that Ron is very dedicated to his cause and keeping this going to the end. But after almost 6 years and not even half of the chapters won, it makes me wonder.

    I suppose, all that was said was "We'll be making a decision when we get back from summer break." As far as I can tell, Summer is over. I guess this means after the October portion of the hunt as well?

    Rejections haven't come out since the first week of the month. Maybe he is out of the country again, who knows. I think any announcement would be welcome, regardless of content.

    I spoke too soon, rejections are out. Strange...4 of my submissions were not rejected, and I got one rejection for a date I didn't submit on.

    One of my Chapter 8 submissions was not marked either.

    I am really surprised that there has been no communication as of yet on chapter 6.
