Thanks to all organizers
These last 13 weeks have been a blast! I would like to thank each and every one of you for creating these challenges for us to solve!
Having done no ARG decoding before, I learned a lot during this time. Not only about various methods of obfuscation used in challenges like these, but also about Japanese puzzles, ancient languages, the Egyptian pantheon, alchemical symbols, Art Nouveau artworks, metalcore music, and so much more. I also got better at recognizing dead ends before running into them. I'm sure this is useful even outside the world of decoding challenges.
Let's keep this thread positive: I'm sure there are a lot of ways things could be done better the next time around but the individual challenge threads have already seen quite a bit of vitriol.
Organizers, thank you!
