He has been online frequently since the day he said he was going to bed. He just never came back to this.,

How odd.. Well, at least it was interesting while it lasted. I guess we'll never know the objective now.

I did, but he hasn't read it. I think a few others pmed him as well. Swarley seems to have been able to get in touch with him I think.

Are we allowed to ask questions like: "does the objective involve any of the following: X, Y, Z?" ?

yes, but he will likely respond with "yes" or "no", rather than narrowing it down... or simply not at all since that is what he has been doing lately. :p

Yeah but even if we ask 5 to 10 subjects at once we can start to narrow it down and get information a lot quicker.

Let me take a different problem and explain why I think that. If I guess a number between 1 and 100 and you guess what it is and I say higher, lower or you guessed it. The best guess is one that provides the most information at once, the average of the current range: which would be 50. Every single time you ask the average you take away half the posibilities. I forget but I think the maximum number of guesses for it is 8 or 9 before coming to the right answer when using that strategy. If you instead choose 1 and just keep adding 1 to your guess it will average you 50 steps.

I think this logic is very applicable and useful here even if we can't quantify the possibilites of what the goal is.

If anyone agrees or disagrees please share(especially if you provide reasons why, but not required).

Will quoting all of the instances where you said 'yes' to a person help achieve the objective?

He's posted a few times vaguely mentioning avoiding drama online. Not completely certain whether it's related to this thread or not.

I didn't see any drama in our thread, so I would hope it's not a result of us. He is actively avoiding us from what I can tell (I see you, Trickster). I hope he wasn't feeling uncomfortably pressured into giving away his stuff. They're his items/accounts after all, and there's nothing wrong with deciding that he still wants to hold onto them.


(Well there was some drama, but not enough to drive him into hiding I would hope)

I'm assuming it's a yes. He hasn't checked this thread in a while though, you have better luck asking about the puzzle in his AMA thread.

Hey. How are you doing? My name is Kelvin. What's yours? Shut up, I don't really care. Instead, let me say a few things about myself: I am a natural game maker, my favorite ice cream flavor is green tea, I like making puzzles where your stupidity is pitted against my genius (read as: poorly oiled hamster wheel).
 
 

THE Ultimate PUZZLE

 
 
Okay. The Ultimate Puzzle Challenge. I have come up with the most diabolical puzzle challenge that will make you really make you think. It will function in the same interactive style as to all the previous puzzle challenges, except this time, you start off with absolutely nothing. Yes, nothing. No diagrams, no hints, no objective. And starting from nothing, you must solve this puzzle. Oh and you potentially have an infinite amount of time to solve this. "Potentially" as in you'll need help. Chances are no one can solve this alone. Actually, it is impossible to do this alone. Work together and work each other. Knowing you no-potential layabouts who hate asking people for help, you will especially struggle. Good for you! You get another challenge on your hands. Isn't that spiffy?
 
 

PRIZES

 
 
Before I go into the rules, I might as well tell you what will make all this worth it. First of all, the very nature of this puzzle will enhance your investigative, deductive reasoning, and critical thinking skills. Isn't it nice to think that everyone who participates in this puzzle is a winner in that regard?
 
Well, time to cut the crap. The real prize is a choice between a minimum of a 10 USD transferred through PayPal (keep the word minimum in mind) AND my entire collection of Neopets accounts. The highlights below does not include the unbuyable rares and useful hoards like codestones, neggs, and rare NC items. I don't bother checking because Neopets is not worth the bother to check. I'm that serious and you should be as well.
 
The winner will receive the logins/pins/bdays/etc of several accounts that contains at least:

  • 1 Duped Super Attack Pea
  • 1 Duped MSPP
  • 12 Million Pure Neopoints
  • 50 Million Neopoints worth in ETS, excludes the aforementioned SuAP and MSPP
  • Level 100+ VWN, 500+ HSD BD Pet, Trainable, hand-trained by myself
  • Level 150+ VWN, 900+ HSD BD Pet, Trainable, hand-trained by myself
  • 2500+ Unused Gold Keyquest Keys
  • 200,000 worth of NeoCash used in Items (not based on their stupid NC Value system)
  • 100+ unopened Gift Box Capsules from the most recent Spring Clearance Sale.
  • I will answer any 3 questions you may have concerning Neopets in as much detail as you request, given that such information was not posted by someone else in the Private Subforum and up.

 

THE RULES

 

1. To win, you must discover the objective and complete it. If someone accomplishes it by accident, let it be. They win.
2. I must reply to all YES/NO questions I see posted in this thread at the time of my viewing with one word replies:

YES, if the solution to your YES/NO question is always a YES.

YES, if the solution to your YES/NO question is possibly a YES, even by near impossible margins or through unforeseen and foreseeable loopholes and there is a perspective where it may be a no.
NO, if the solution to your YES/NO question is always a NO.
REPHRASE, if your YES/NO question isn't understood by me or requires clarification before being answered.

3. I am allowed to ignore the subsequent YES/NO questions from one user if they ask more than one question of that type before allowing another person to ask theirs.
4. You can ask any type of questions as well, but I'm not obligated to answer them. You can also chat with me and everyone here.
5. If you catch me lying at any point regarding a response to a question and provide an explanation and proof correctly defining my lie using evidence purely found in this thread, then you automatically win the prize and the puzzle ends without needing to find the solution. I can't lie to you.
6. This puzzle ends with no winner if three days passed after the last YES/NO question has been asked.
7. You may purchase straightforward clues through Paypal for 5 USD each and it will be given through PM. These clues will be unique to the buyer and will not be shared to any other buyer. After purchasing a clue, the buyer can ask any questions of any format concerning the clue in the PM and I will answer every single one of the to the level of detail requested. All the money received from selling clues will be added to the money prize lot. PM me if you are interested.
 

GOOD LUCK

You don't need it.

 

 

I noticed how you gave stated that there would be a choice between two prizes however you only listed one prize (paypal AND neopets account). Kind of funny how there's nothing listed as your second prize  :sorry:

 

Did you intentionally avoid stating the second prize. YES or NO.
