    Default If the hunt is over...

    I'm waiting for an official announcement still, but if and when that does happen and the hunt is announced as dead, I think we should start a thread of what the solutions might be. I have one, but have no idea as to its authenticity as it was submitted after the bankruptcy proceedings were started. But if we do find out its officially over I will release full details and a walkthrough... it is relatively easy to follow, and you don't really need to understand any english at all to get it. It answers the question of what the poem means, as well as many unanswered curiosities, such as the page 31 upside down sun....

    "you don't really need to understand any english at all to get it. It answers the question of what the poem means". A bit contradictory, but I'll take your word for it ....

    Default Hunt Over

    We have all seen the deadlines come and go.... I'm not trying to dampen anybody's spirits here, but we have to look at the facts. This thing is over, it has to be. Contact info Ive found in the past no longer functions, the dar forum is gone, MS has not been seen or heard from, stopped doing book signings and readings about 6 months ago, just when the info I found, another step to the puzzle, stopped working. I think we all need to face the cold reality that it is over. I'll admit, I hope MS can somehow rekindle this hunt. But even if he could somehow pull it off, would or could anyone ever believe there is something left to claim. I think the best we can hope for is another solution book, no scrap that, probably just verbal confirmation.

    Default Still on?

    "The Treasure Hunt will run until all puzzles are solved and winners verified, or until December 30/31, 2009 ("the End Date"), whichever is sooner."

    At least that's what THE BOOK says.

    At least that's what THE BOOK says.
    The Book also states: #11 of Official Rules, That sponsor reserves the right to Modify, Suspend, or Terminate the Contest at its sole discretion.

    I think MS covered all the bases (as he should have) and has provided no Guarantee.

    My plan (until I hear an official word it is over) is to continue to work on a solution. And enjoy the book and story for years to come no matter what happens. For me, I plan to keep in on the shelf next to the other childrens books our family has enjoyed for a generation or two. It's place will be next to The Runaway Bunny and GoodNight Moon and I will enjoy it all over again once I am blessed with Grandchildren.

    I am sure I am not the only one that would like to see book #3 (or more) without prizes. MS writes a good story! Not to mention that Pook, Booger and the gang left us hanging. The Forest still needs to be saved.

    We should be thanking Michael Stadther for the wonderful memories and fun, begging for more story and stop complaining about losing a few bucks because we purchased a book and didn't win.

    Think about it, Lets say you never purchased a lottery ticket before the draw. . Do you get mad, sue the lottery commision because you would have chosen those #'s had you purchased a ticket? Or.... you purchased a ticket and let the machine decide... but say, No Fair! I would have chosen the right #'s and now I want a refund for my ticket and the right to prosecute everyone associated with the lottery because I did't win.
    At least the books gave back more than losing money gambling.

    Thanks!!! MS!

    Default Spoiler Forum?

    In fact, if the hunt is cancelled, is there any way to keep this forum active and add a section clearly labeled for spoilers? This would serve for anyone who wants to post ideas of a solve, while keeping those eyes that don't want to see them clearly averted....

    Babybird,

    I can only speak for myself. I am not upset that I purchased a book and didn't win- winning the rings was never the point!

    I'm upset that the hunt was simply stopped with hardly any explanation. I'm upset because I feel as if I've wasted a year+ trying to solve this thing and now we may never have the solution......the "solution" is what I want. The fact that the end date of ATT has come and gone now with nary a peep about clues 3 and 4 just pisses me off (sorry) even more.

    This is more like buying a lottery ticket but they never draw the numbers.

    Hi K,

    How do you go about submitting a solve, because I've one.
    Yes, I'll do the same if and when they say hunt is offically over.
    I'm still in there with a chance though.
    As I'm certain now that i've the right solve.
    It was right there before my very eyes, I just wasn't reading it quite right.

    Batgirl,

    ttadmin@hotmail.com still seemed to be working the last time I tried it. Of course, that doesn't necessarily mean anyone looked at my message, just that it didn't bounce back.
    If you recognize my avatar or know about shard V or "RUN...STEAL", please pm or e-mail me re possible partnering.
