He didn't expect to find the person on the first page of the member's list. It's a small world after all, but it's a large list!

EDIT:

A fairly random guess for third riddle...

It's been 3 days, can we get some confirmation we're wrong already.

Sorry, little preoccupied. None of the answers I've seen so far are correct.

No problem. Going back to the theory that it’s something in the sky, or at long distance.

Still cold, so no, neither URL is correct.

Hm, my guess
Nothing important.
Original riddle message.
NightWish's contribution.

Quote:
'nyways... the first to find'um gets a drink on me. Banzai.
So,
  • (bar setting doesn’t matter)
  • small world isn’t it
  • little village[r] / larger than you fhink
  • onwards or backwards
  • Banzai (isolated hint)

Small world might refer to the six degree of seperation. Okey, need to find people with large friend lists maybe.

The “onwards or backwards” thing is probably the key to solving it. If only my English wasn’t so bad and I knew what the expression meant.

Uh, “banzai” means ten thousand years, and is used for suicide attacks and fireworks, new years I believe. It’s suppose to be a independent hint, but I’m pretty stumped.
banzai the the user? http://forums.animesuki.com/member.php?u=10839

@felix

Believe me, having knowledge of English expressions and stuff is not going to lead you anywhere with this riddle.

And what do you mean by "isolated hint"? "Banzai" needs to be put to the original riddle for it to work as a hint. You're not supposed to analyze the word on its own.

And yeah, your last answers are still not right.

Btw, when will the next riddle be posted? I'm pretty sure everyone has gotten sick of these two riddles already.

NW said,

Adding the exclamation "Banzai" to the end of riddle would give you another path to the solution.
So I interpreted that as a stepping stone rather then a piece of the puzzle.

Probably giving a week after the hint was posted, 3/19. Then that riddle will "expire" ie the creator will get the point, and the next one would be posted shortly there after unless it's extended for some reason.

That’s not in the rules, unless I’m mistaken.

However it's already been two weeks since it was posted, so I assume Nightwish is giving a bit of extra time since the hint was posted slower than he intended to, so would make sense to me anyways to give a week after the hint was revealed given the original rules.

Hm, interesting. I was think of waiting a day for another hint, but if the limit is 2 weeks then that means we always get only 1 hint. Oh well, I’ll have to think more on it…

Since NW added a dot at the end of the riddle even though the hint was initially just “banzai” not “banzai.” punctuation probably doesn’t matter.

I don't really understand your explanations for your answers...Am I just stupid? Could you enlighten me for a bit here?

And sorry, the URLs are wrong.
