My puzzle:

Spoiler:
 

Along with the puzzle itself lies another secret. A puzzle inside a puzzle, if you will.

Solve them both for 1 decryption point.

It's a smartphone barcode. I assume figuring that part out was one puzzle and when scanned will reveal an actual puzzle? So if we don't have a device that supports a barcode scanning app, we can't earn the points? Unfair.

There are other means of deciphering it, if aware of its name.

If you read this message. Approbation is yours. Many will seek this answer. Each struggling to find secret. Unfortunate. Perhaps Jinji will discover. Having made many, the cryptic strand. Alas. RedHerring shall prevail. I wonder. Astound this fox.

The first letters of each sentence spell "I am Eupharia"

This is the message from the QR Code. Mac has solved both of the puzzles. The answer is in the quote, try and figure it out before you highlight it.

Anyway, well done Mac. Ghost and Fish have competition. We await your puzzle, oh wise machine.

PostSubject: Unimaginative first puzzle, but a great thread nonetheless.   Wed Aug 17, 2011 8:20 am

Though you've revealed the answer already anyway, I can still state thus: if people still haven't worked out this first puzzle by now, I pity them. That kind of coded message is common knowledge, especially with the emergence of internet trolls who use similar methods to "stealth-pwn" people; and I can honestly claim I have not seen another puzzle thread similar to this one on other Forums where such a code WASN'T used as the very first puzzle.

The only difficulty here was in hiding the puzzle behind a QR Code, which there are many readers available for. However, being relevant, I therefore feel compelled to state that I am not very keen on the use of QR Codes and feel physically turned off when they are included in a page except to provide a service that wouldn't be easy to provide otherwise (e.g. mobile downloads). I am not sure of the reason for my feeling this way, but I do.

Nevertheless, I am flattered to find I was named as inspiration for another person's creation - it is truly an honour. I am just sad not to have been made aware of it much earlier. But it makes me proud to know of it. This thread has a great concept and I certainly hope you guys keep it going strong!

I didn't want to set the bar too high on the first post but now that I see you're both more than capable of deciphering this, expect my future contributions to be hellish.

ok here's my puzzle:
Spoiler:
 

C

Most of you are probably calling me "Gray Mac" by now due to Mac's multiple personalities. But a lot of people in the world refer to me as "Chaos" , a synonym of this name you're looking for. Also "Nothing".

You lagged my browser to hell with that puzzle! But I got the answer without having to wait, though I won't explain how because I don't want to spoil it for others. Let's just say it was ingenuity. Does the phrase "I am the cheese" mean anything to you?

I had been waiting for Macro to confirm our answers but it doesn't look like he is going to. Euph's already accepted it as right anyway and is the final arbiter for this topic really, so I guess it doesn't matter that much all told.

Since I may not be around much more today though, I thought I might as well submit my puzzle now. This is only a single puzzle though it does have two parts, as I am not going to tell you what you're looking for or where - you have to figure it out yourself. I will know you have cracked the code when you correctly post what you think the solution is in BLOCK CAPITALS; but I do not expect this to be easy.

[Puzzle]
I wrote a letter to a TV Station once. "The Quick Brown Fox Jumped Over The Lazy Dog" I typed first to test the keyboard. As I did so, I read over a headline in the newspaper. "T.V. quiz jack, Mr. PhD, bags few lynx". Rather contrived way to put it, I thought. Underneath it, "Phew! Junk MTV quiz show graced by fox!" I put down the paper in disgust - every headline sounded smutty, yet the stories themselves were perfectly innocent - and turned on the TV. An advert said, "Watch 'Jeopardy!', Alex Trebek's fun quiz game." I finished writing and looked up to see the Local News, and the reporter announced "Thousands of DJs flocking by, asking why MTV ax'd its quiz program". The TV showed a protest had started outside MTV studios from both staff and viewers angry about them cancelling not just the quiz, but a large number of their programs overall. I decided not to send that letter after all. Sometimes what people DON'T see is more important than what they do.

yeah you're right. It didn't quite turn out like I expected because lmgtfy doesn't scroll -_- (autocorrect tried changing lmgtfy to "onrush" lol) now please tell me you used find and replace on word instead of changing every single l to a 1 and o to a 0 xD

Sorry for not checking sooner[

Notepad, actually. Much quicker.

Apology accepted. As for your puzzle, at least you now know what NOT to do Smile

Gegeh... (places arm behind head and looks embarrassed)... that puzzle took me an hour to write, and you solve it in ten minutes! I was not expecting it so quickly...

(Straightens up and begins to speak more authoritatively)

Very well! I was not really on my A-game last night and came up with that puzzle on the spur of the moment, so it wasn't going to be a difficult one as I usually put a lot more thought into them. I will NOT make that mistake next time! But for now, you may take your point, Macro; and enjoy the glory that comes with being above me in rank. At least now, you can show us how a puzzle should be done.

Would someone mind explaining how the answer is 'SOLVE'? silent

Edit: Never mind, with Mac's clue of 'Pangram' I got it. Clever.

1. Macacacacacaca...Manana...
2. Super Late Ivys
3. I will take on any challenge time for all the world to see...
4. Zammbi -a +o -m +e
5. Clear four rows at the same time
6. Poster Pick Tear
7. Alexonsager
8. List of Play
9. "The Forum Clown"
10. You bastard
11. LOLOLOLOLOLOLOL It's ITT
