Is there any limit to how many pages deep into a subforum the thread containing a clue can be found?

(Am I allowed to ask this?)

Of course! The only hint I will give is that it does not go past 10 pages.

Who will be posting the hints? Are these hints in new threads or old ones by editing messages?

Is there a limit to how many pages within a thread the word can be? Ex: the thread is 20 pages, can it only be within the first 10?

I would assume it would be the first page if there's multiple pages but anywhere on the first page, not sure though. Imagine putting a thing 15 pages in lmfaooo

I think I've solved it already, but I'm not sure.

How strict is the grading on the submission going to be?

Yes, actually. It could be if you'd like. :)

Mods are volunteers. When we get around to approving posts, multiple times a day, is when we get around to it. Posting at 5AM EST guarantees you probably won't get approved for hours.

Enjoy the event.

It depends on the submission. If one word is in a different spot, we'll be lenient.

If you already figured out the hidden message then you know exactly what I'm talking about. :)

just a reminder to everyone, please do not post the hidden message in this thread.

I've never tried something similar, but wow, that's quick!
How are the clues supposed to look? Just a random image in the middle of a post?
Sorry if I have spelling mistakes. English is not my main language.
I added a petition to my achievement rework!
Plese come and vote to support it!
If you have any suggestions related to achievements, please post them on my thread so we can suggest them together!
Also, support my suggestion about private lobbies!It would definitely increase the playerbase.

Does anyone know what happened to Sheriff Tom? When I went to submit my entry, all that I found at his house was a spooky ghost!
