hm... didn't know it was unclear that I really tried to solve them ;-) ...

Why I didn't ask for hints? hm... well, for me personally, there's nearly no difference between begging for hints and searching for a walkthrough... plus, I'm too impatient... plus, I'm too shy and asocial ;-P

If you don't understand the difference between a hint and a spoiler - then you definately didn't ask here for hints.

it's not really possible to not look at the hints in this forum. One alone isn't a spoiler, many hints together are, I think. Well, it's in my brains like that, it's not logical, I know ;-)

if you are halfways far in the game (say, about level 50), you will note that by reading the forums you will seldomly get a full spoiler, unless you mean cheater forums of course.

and it is well possible not to look at the hints. sometimes it's even the better way because hints can also confuse.

I don't understand these "instructions" for the hall of shame -> I've got no idea how you recognized these players as cheaters

e.g. I want to know what the keyword does mean

could s.o. please explain it to me ::Pfffff::

There once was a hall of fame (not anymore).
And people wanted to get into it.
To do that, you had to email DavidM.

Cheaters looked up an answer from somewhere and emailed DavidM with weird stories on how they found the solution :D
These stories revealed that they didn't solve this level by themselves ;)

I got all the way to level 21 before. Then my husband deployed and I had too much on my plate. Recently I found my sheet on the answers to 1-20. All of them worked. I just didn't have my last page saved and I'm anal rententive like that to write down the answers as I get them. Anywho they all worked but should I assume that I am going in the wrong direction now. Or do you think the answers were the same. Dumb q I know.

Hehe I forgot about this gem...
Did you really set up "trap" pages that would somehow log people's IP as I've heard? Or is it simply a question of seeing messages from blatantly obvious liars?

Yup. There are lots of fake pages that log and automatically ban your ip. I've submitted those fake answers to walkthrough sites. So you can only get on the fake pages via walkthroughs.

And most important: You won't be told that you're on a fake page and that you have been banned. Whenever you are being told, that your ip has been logged, nothing happened at all.
Nobody has ever gotten to a fake page by accident.

Very clever...I suppose that still leaves it open to people who would give away the solution process rather than just the answers but at least it narrows it down. Your most ingenius move was to include level Nu--un-cheatable. :J

Had to... the game would be nothing, if everybody could view the end via a google search.

Btw some of the fake-levels even have fake-solution-explanations. So the password would even sound kinda reasonable to a cheater ;)
