Random stuff. I do not know the value, but I think it's nifty. Check your PM. The answer is on page 8.

This puzzle was initially a blog post, but now is its own general contest to see who can solve it first. To see the previous blog post, click here.

 

I have this puzzle I made. I bet you something valuable (and tangible to which I can deliver) on the line that no one will ever solve this puzzle. Anyone can who can view blogs and post replies in this blog post are allowed to participate. You just need to have the motivation to catch my furtiveness and may even need to do some research if you haven't tread this world. It doesn't matter if you're a staff member, regular member, advanced, or private. Eyeing this blog post overtime for new revelations from other members may help you solve the puzzle first. Can you solve this mystery?

 

I'll help you out. You can ask YES/NO Questions and I will pick and choose. Get the truth out of me--hopefully intelligently.

 

Don't be intimidated by numbers. You have both strength and friends in numbers.

 

RULES:

  • To win, you must write out the three fill-ins of the crossword in any order in one post in this blog.
  • Anyone can ask YES/NO questions to get clues in solving this puzzle.
  • No one person can ask a YES/NO question twice in a row, however, asking a question at every other turn is permitted.
  • I am obligated to answer a YES/NO question for every three of such asked.
  • However, I can choose which YES/NO question to answer out of the pool. For example, after three questions, I would answer the any of the three, but after the six questions, I can answer any of the six, excluding the ones I previously answered.
  • You can ask any type of questions as well, but I'm not obligated to answer them, but I can if I want to.
  • If you catch me lying at any point regarding a response to a question and provide an explanation correctly defining my lie, then you automatically win and the puzzle ends without needing to find the solution.
  • There is no time limit on this puzzle, but if I'm gone from Codex for an extended time, assume the worse on this puzzle.
  • The prize gets better with time, but I will never publicly say what it is.
  • Never PM me about this puzzle. I follow this thread and will check it when I get notifications. Click "Follow this topic" on the top right of the title bar to get updates.
  • This thread is a fresh start to the puzzle and peoples' questions. People may re-ask the same questions (even if already answered), and I'm freely to choose to answer an already answered question to respond to if I want to.

Good luck!

Here is a list of only the asked and answered questions:
I will include non-yes/no formatted questions that are answered.


Color Guide: Red for no and pink for yes.

Note: Numbers in [brackets] reference post #. These are grouped in 3 for Kelvin to reference, so he can answer 1 question per 3.


Asked & Answered Questions (Contest Thread)
Are any of the answers related to science? No.
Are all the words in English? Yes.
Does the 1 across/down starts it "D"? No.
Does 1 across/down start with "B"? No.
Is "bloodhound" related to any of the words? Yes. I'm not that mean as to give the puzzle a completely arbitrary title assignment.
Do any of the answers have anything to do with your personal life? No.
Are all of the spaces supposed to be filled with letters? Yes.
So do any of the fill-ins involve the subject of either truth and/or lies? YES.
Is the answer with the most words more than two words long? No.

What happened to the fourth, fifth, seventh and possibly the tenth through fifteenth in one across?
I couldn't think of a witticism for some of them. Plus I only needed to provide the bare minimum of information to make the clue only lead to that specific fill-in.


Does that change the number of fill-ins for each portion of the puzzle, or does that mean there are now spaces (even though you previously denied spaces existing in the answers)?  No.
Do the posted hints correlate with each portion of the puzzle? For example, hint #1 correlates with 1 across, hint #2 with 2 across and hint #3 with 1 down. No.
Do the rules and clues have a direct correlation, other then being for this puzzle? No.

In one down, what does the third have no room for more than one of?
It can reference one of two things, one of which--at least I thought--is explicit.


Are "under 19,044" related about odds using a random letter? No.

Is answer of #2 Misfits song? (from song we are 138.  138^2 = 19,044. "under 19,044" could be square root of 19044) No.
Is one of the things referenced by one down death? No.
Does "the twentieth" refer to a position within the puzzle? No.
 Do you think we'll solve this in the next 6 months? No.
 

Asked & Answered Questions (Blog)
Can we find more info about the questions on this website?  No.

Are there spaces in each entry of the puzzle?  No.
Do the answers have anything to do with Neocodex at all?  No.
Does any of the answers relate to each other in any way? Yes. They are strongly related to each other and to how I framed them in the puzzle.
Are each of the answers a single word each?  No.
Is anyone of the words an adjective? Yes.
Are all of the words adjectives? No.
Does one across and one down begin with a vowel?  No.
Does one across and one down begin with a vowel? (again) No.

Is "A" the first letter of one across? (no because A is a vowel)
Does 2 across starts with a "V"? No.
Does 1 across/down start with "F"? No.

Bonus
I took away "the" and "a" from the answer. So instead of "the killer" or "a murderer", you would just put killer or murderer into the boxes.

Just for clarification, I don't count that recap questions by Coops as a question to be counted. However, you can ask those questions again if you'd like and I'll count them among the three before I respond.

Okay. There is the list. I will update it periodically with the questions people ask in the thread too, that way people don't need to scroll through pages and pages to find if someone has asked their question.

Does the 1 across/down starts with "D"?

That's why I said we should just ask things about the LETTEERRRSSSS.
