Well that's a good enough explanation in my eyes. Nice job finding the 11.17.217 thing. It seems so obvious now, but I had never thought of it before

I know, every time I read the answer, I'm like, "It was right under my nose!" Every time.

Nightwish, can we have some more hints to the first one if it stays unanswered by, like, the 18th riddle?

Gah, sorry that I wasn't here to tell you whether or not your guesses were right, guys. I was moving (not voluntarily) and didn't have internet for a few weeks.

Anyways, congratulations on getting it right, Brocko!

Well this is how I interpreted the most recent hint, which says using only mod. I think the mod is either 2 or 5. These might've been guessed before, especially Kairin, but no harm trying again

I checked all the answers from the very first guess to the latest and I didn't see any links to Kairin's profile so you are probably on the mark there Rennir.

Actually there was. Both are mostly likely wrong since Kairin has already been guessed and Lefteris is Male

There was a guess using Kairin Either I didn't see that or it was recently then..

Going to just throw in a random guess for Hellychan http://forums.animesuki.com/member.php?u=2697

Simply because of the Shinigami with her being a Bleach fan. I'm guessing someone else already guessed Hellychan?

My stabs in the dark for the 1st riddle.

The math bit is way too ambiguous for me atm. You can kinda work out the numbers but then what? And even before that I'm not even sure if the numbers I'm using are even correct to begin with lol

I'm still a little confused. Only use mod? Is it a modulo operation?

I've tried 5 mod 3, and 3 mod 5 etc. etc., yet It comes out as similar incorrect responses as before such as:
http://forums.animesuki.com/member.php?u=22461
http://forums.animesuki.com/member.php?u=35571

I know they're wrong, I would just like a cold or warm response for my method. Is it something more complicated like a linear congruence problem?

To be fair can only answer an explanation/hypothesis with links. It's still a riddle after all.
(you also wouldn't want someone else stealing your idea =P before you even try it)

Am I the only one that thinks, that none native english speaking ppl will have problems with this riddle stuff?

It may be a nice forum game but half of the forum members can't play it

I am not a native english speaker; I don't think any of the riddles so far required you to be one, or advantaged you for being one. If you got a basic understanding of english, enough to be able to read the riddle, everything should be fine.
