Woah, there're two more riddles already. I'm still fighting the first one...So tough, that one.

The third riddle

Since it's been a day since NightWish last checked the answers and since it happens to be my submission, I think I should help move things faster a bit. So, to begin with...

None of you have got the answer yet!

Maybe he means the one he's talking to? In this case me.

Some of you have come up with a very interesting idea! But no, the answer is definite and irrelevant to the person who answers it. So let's not worry about that anymore!

Also, I'm afraid to say that none of you are stepping on the right track, mostly because good sir NightWish has added extra "hints" to the original riddle in an attempt to help make it better. Hope that'd help!

Third riddle....

Quote:
A drunk sits next to you at a bar:
Ya see, there's this villager I once met. (loudly) Can anybody in
here help me find him? (pausing) Sadly... there is almost nothing I
remember 'bout him;
This part leads me to believe that it's something in 'Suggestion forum'.

Wrong answers, sorry.

Btw, I'm not gonna steal NightWish's job on this thread any longer. So just keep your answers coming and waiting for him to check them as usual. If he's late for a day or so I'll pop up to help again.

I'm seeing a lot of URLs but not a lot of explanations. Can I reiterate that I'd like to each answer submitted with some more thought. Finding a set of URLs that you think partly match the riddle and then posting all of them, in one post or many, isn't really keeping to the spirit of the game. That just makes it a spammy guessing game where as it is supposed to be a test of logic, lateral thinking, searching ability, and general forum knowledge. Answers that introduce readers to areas of the forum that they've not seen before are great, but they are even better if they have some narrative around why they fit the riddle.

"Less is more": Fewer posts/answers with more content please. If you have a short list, great! Whittle it down using logic and then post all of that working out instead. It'll be much more interesting for everyone else.

To quote NoSanninWa from the original hunt:

And no, there have been no correct answers yet.

For this I figured the memberlist was the best place to start as he was looking for a villager he knew nothing about. Then since the riddle said "lemme look at you f'a second?" I naturally went and looked at the letter U on the memberlist. Since it the riddle wasn't trying to confuse me I figured that when ventured onwards or backwards I'd look for a username that started with "um" and probably be the first one or the page its on.

Third Riddle.

Someone looking for someone. Also (lemme look at you f'a second?) makes me think it's place where you can meet other members (bar).

Meh. All my theories feel kinda incomplete I remember why I hate riddles again!

But nevertheless:
I started to look around the places for new members, since you might only visit them once and not remember well like the drunken dude. My pm box long has devoured any welcome pm that might have existed - so my guess that the sender might be the villager was a dead end
However: Going from the angle the riddle is supposed to trick us into thinking we're looking for a user I have two othe guesses:

http://forums.animesuki.com/register.php?a=ver
^It's the general link to activate your account, a site you might have only "met" a single time and not rememer.

http://forums.animesuki.com/faq.php?faq=rules
^The forum rules! They're larger than you might think and since infractions are fairly common you might not remember well!

Yeah, I'm not content with these answers either. My other train of thought was:
The riddle describes more the place instead of the persons - is that the true hint? The drunk dude asks all in the bar to help him but also us specifically. So the bar could be this very thread. The subforum the village; the whole board the "small world".
The 'General Discussion' forum is rather large and might be "larger than you [t]hink". The whole time I always thought venturing onwards or backwards refers to the member being either before or after you, depending on your ID or name or that it is a middle page somewhere. But now I thought about it like this: it doesn't matter which page you are in 'General Discussion' the sticky threads on the top always stay the same.
So I thought the starter of the 'Introduce yourself' thread would be the most suitable:
"Babak"
But the ID isn't active anymore so meh.

... I also tried to find a hidden message by extracting the drunkish slang of the man ... but no results lol

(I skipped the posts without explanation so sorry if there's a repost)

Some really interesting incorrect answers so far.
Hints will start around the 9th if no one has made progress in the correct direction.

Place where you meet others, also (this village is not so small). Leads me to believe that it's place where there are many small villages which also can be considered as one big village.

Somehow I think we're suppose to figure out the riddle outside the context of the forum, then search the forum.

Might as well give it a go:
- "world" (uh, no clue)
- "shadow" http://forums.animesuki.com/archive/index.php ?
- "reflection"/"mirror" (same as above) and http://www.animesuki.com/mirrors.php

I think zebra is going in the right direction. Now that I look at it a lot of the pieces are falling into place. The bar represents this or the riddle thread. The drunk specifically asks loudly, so that all the people could hear, which corresponds how everyone participating in the scavenger hunt is trying to find the answer. Add that to what zebra-chan says about the backwards/forwards and the small and big world...That being said, I think the answers are:

My justification the question itself was silly (asking someone to find a person whom you remember almost nothing about). Also the second post in the thread is about finding the identity of an anime character. Yet I'm not sure if the answer to the riddle is a person because of the "find 'um" which can be interpreted as a group of people.

Well it's a villager that probably no one knows.

He is small, but larger than you might think.

If we search "small" on the members list we get the following

http://forums.animesuki.com/memberlist.php?do=getall

So based on the list here, the person who has two rep bars is the one who is larger than you might think.

Thus I declare it is this user profile!
