    honestly..if you found this and people started questioning you and bashing you and you knew it was real... why defend it? why do you care if no one else believes you? seems to me it's their loss right? unless you have some alterior motives...

    Well, what if you are allowed to delete a post only right after you submitted it... before anyone else has posted a response? I don't mean before anyone has READ it, because that won't show up in the thread.

    Just a thought.

    Default we all know what we'd do

    When we find something or think we do we keep going on it, and until we are lost and dont know whats up or the next day after looking again people get lost so the random thoughts are posted, MAYBE some people even the best of you post ASAP with a thought, but why just post a thought with no back up? im sure MS wouldnt release a clue saying you are on the right direction for the next year or so and even more i dont think hed post it with any direct link to a persons thought unless we are all that far behind a solution.

    that would be nice, deboriole, but i dunno if the forum service has buttons like that or buttons you could customize to that, unless it let the admins creat their own buttons with specific commands, but then it would need to fit into the rest of the code and stuff... i have no clue how to do that, or even if it would work, but if it's at all possible it would be a great thing for the admins to try.
    Or am I just paranoid...

    *Of course*

    I would have to say I would use the same method on everything I could and then when I exhausted it, I would share it. I think that how it is found is just as important as what is found. I have to also admit, however, I would not keep it too long because I am terrible about keeping secrets, and my ego would want some back patting. Ha!

    i have every intention of sharing all of my ideas except for one... and that idea is the one that gives me the final location of a token. Up untill i find that location none of the ideas hold any tangible value and therefore are only valuable when shared.

    I agree with a previous poster that there needs to be a third option--namely, the one Lyricalash used himself: after analyzing his poem, and not making head-way with it, he offered it up for group analysis, without sharing the discovery method.

    Renart chose the same path with her verification, and quickly recanted and shared her discovery method, but to no avail. Renart has very special talents, and part of the experience she'll take away after this t'hunt is concluded will be an increased awareness of just how special her talents are.

    I've found a few unique clues and methods, and was immediately all a-thrill and secretive, until I explored each carefully and found there was no immediate and obvious general application. Then I would offer them up for group-think/sacrifice. I think that's human nature. Lyrical would not be pursuing his best interests if he gave away a discovery method that held potential application elsewhere.

    The poll options are a tad bit too choice-restrictive, IMO.

    North Carolina hunters unite! I tell you what, Perch, I'd love to have you on my side of any character debate. Impressive.

    Bring it on - maybe Wendell, Durham, and Charlotte can brainstorm just enough to make some progress. Talk with Perch and see if there is a weekend (and location) that might suit. I'm definitely game, schedules permitting!
