That's not a mistake, that's a character flaw:D
Maybe it's time to set up NPA-branches:confused:

And not really on topic, but my silliest mistake must be {shame mode on}pm'ing someone the incorrect hint for the end of lvl 36, because my notes weren't that logically.... Put it straight after 36 hours checking it myself after she stayed absolutely stuck. {shame mode of}

lvl 30 really drove me nuts!!

I did everything you could possibly think of . I checked Davids site over and over again reading everything to find some clues (I'm sorry, but I'm soooo sick of looking at pictures showing your face ;) ) ... searched the net, manipulated pics in p-shop, scanned every bit of metadata i could find. I even read articels and tutorials about adobes image-metadata-tools etc etc etc

Finally I got the right url by accident because I did't erase all I meant to from the adress. I pmed someone because I was major frustrated to solve a riddle not having a clue how and why and the answer was even more frustrating because I did the right thing on the wrong page several times ..... two days long ....


omg I hate lvl 30!!!

How about this one. Had the answer to a level right away today and disregarded it as I thought it was too long to be the answer.

*totally dies* yay, first time I'm ever posting on a forum!

But dear lord, I just made the silliest logical mistake ever on level 9.....
It was right in front of my face, but I thought it was waaaay too easy so I spent a whole day googling random things...
and when I tried it out of frustration, and it worked, I laughed for at least a minute straight at my total stupidity. :D

Well, this is completely right.

However, mine was on Level 36:

I had found the unusual thing in the source but interpreted it completely wrong, wasting half a day searching google for a proper converter and after finding one and using it I found out it had been for completely nothing... This really drove me crazy that moment :confused:

I only made one silly logical mistake, but repeatedly. My mistake is always ignoring the correct method or the correct source for the solution.
The last one of this type was the button search ...
That's like going straight ahead, and right before reaching the aim, turning to the left ...

I just had the worst day today. I don´t think my brain worked properly.

I was on level 53 reading the thread. People were writing about things and numbers that I couldn´t relate to at all. I spent a long long time reading and looking at the source codes getting more and more confused

Then finally it hit me. I was on level 53 but the thread I was reading was level 54.
