Ok noobies, here is how the chase cycle works. It starts off in the winter season with everyone at each other's throats because they failed to find the chest.

Next they get a solve or tweak their old solve and get cocky and overly exuberantly chest thumping because they falsely believe they are the lead searcher. This lasts until about the beginning of July, when they come back home empty handed and make the walk of shame.

The next month it gets real quiet as they avoid the embarrassment of failing again.

Finally, out of frustration that Fenn kicked their a$$ once again, they decide to get even by "ruining the chase" for everyone by threatening to reveal their solve.

Some nervous nellies will beg them to keep quiet and they feel good again. Some reveal their solve, and everyone shakes their head at the stupidity of the solve while trying to re-motivate them with cliche phrases like, "Edison failed a 2000 times before inventing the light bulb" or "keep trying" and "at least you had a nice vacation."

Then the cycle repeats.
Yup. I'm guilty of this.
Why would anyone want to ruin the chase?

They think they can ruin the chase by not allowing the finder actually earn it. They feel they have information that is so close to the real solution that if revealed there will be a mad rush to the chest, while others who are actually close through their own hard work will lose out by this action.

All a myth, but that is the chase cycle.

It’d be easy to ruin...here’s something decently easy you probably missed...whats wrong with the map attached to the poem? Fenn drew something on there and drew it wrong on purpose...this fact isn’t debatable...I’ll make it even easier: What is backwards on the map?
case in point.

case in point.
Thanks for making it easy for me.

Yea...still too advanced for you? Here’s the answer then...magnetic deviation lines running NE shouldn’t be red, they should be blue...this is a universally accepted standard...
Ok this is the part where they reveal their solution, and we all shake our heads.

I won’t be telling you anything difficult. That was simple. You didn’t know that did you? Probably never would have figured that out.
Collectively the group shakes their head. The part I should have added to the pattern is the "you don't understand" when their supposed bean spill is cryptic as hell.

Noobies this is what I was talking about.
so that one guy uses synonyms for alcoholic and gets banned for personal attacks? could we get a clearer definition of the word personal and also of the word attack?


it was Beavertooth that made that call?
why didn't you edit the person's post?


Butterflies symbolize transformation. However, the color of the butterfly provides further information. A black butterfly signifies bad news or illness, yellow signifies hope and guidance, brown signifies important news, red signifies an important event, and white signifies good luck.
