How do we put a screen shot in with our answer? I did the puzzle for Day 1 before and I have the screen shot saved on my computer. I'm just not sure how to put into one of these messages.

Go to imgur.***, upload the image there (new post option), then right-click the image once it has been uploaded and open it in a new tab or window. When you open it in a new tab or window, copy the last part of the URL (e.g. if your image format is jpg, copy the .jpg and the random letters right before it only). Then, use the following BBCode in your forum post:

[imgur src=]

And paste the part of the URL that you copied right after the equal sign. Also, be sure to type something else in the post as well, since you cannot post a reply with nothing but imgur image on it.

Posting a screen shot is a bit complicated for some. I didn't realize I needed to type a word as well. I don't recall having to post screen shots last year for this event?

If we have to do it again, could you please include instructions within the post? Thanks.


Agree! Sad to say but I do not know how to post the screen shot I saved. Any tips will be appreciated.

not sure how to add screenshot

First you have to upload your screenshot at https://imgur.***/

Then right-click it once the upload is complete and open it in a new tab or window, and your URL should resemble something like this:

i.imgur.***/yrMxbE5.png

Those random letters before ".png" are unique to each upload, so for your screenshot they will be different. Then just copy those letters and the image format (png in this case), and add them to the Imgur BBCode like so:

[imgur src=yrMxbE5.png]

And the result:

So what's the theme of the 4th day's riddle supposed to be? Is it some Christmas thing or just some thing in the game? Because I can't think of anything Christmas-y based on it, but if it's an in-game thing, it sounds something like the Shades of Mort'ton temple! > )

Can some one tell me if I did the 1st one wrong or not? I finished the puzzle and took a screenshot... But I just pasted the link into the comment, I didn't do the whole [ ] thing... And now I'm worried that I won't get a chance to win anything.

I really doubt you're the only one to do it like that, so Jagex will probably accept pasted links too so long as the screenshot itself is valid. Using the BBCode is just about convenience in the end.

One of these threads is not like the others,
one of these threads doesn't belong.
Can you tell which thread is not like the others,
by the time I finish this song? > )




It's the day 4. Seriously Jagex, could you please say what the theme is with the riddle. Is it something in-game? Is it something related to Christmas outside the game? You've done that for the other days by e.g. revealing that the words in the day 5 word search were ability names, why is day 4 so different from the other days? Is it because it was posted by Maylea and not Purpur? Is Maylea the root of all evil? Jk, but please, say something! > )

So I've found five of the words in the Day 5 puzzle. 2 vertical, 2 horizontal, and one diagonal. That last one is really well hidden

There are 2 diagonals, and they're very close to each-other, so if you found one of them, the other one is a couple spaces to the left or right, depending on which one you found! > )

If anyone happens to be struggling with the day 11 riddle:

It's a piece of dead content in Morytania, featuring grinding in a literal sense! > )

Well... I got something way different than that Lol

You did? Would you vaguely describe what you got? > )

Sure haha I ended up weird locations such as:
Stronghold (darkest level) and the sewer.
Mainly because that's where most of the grinding is done if the riddle implies towards xp. It didn't really give me much of a hint if it's something else like grinding for comp requirements or reputation.

Yeah, I can see why you'd think of the grinding part like that, but as you said, you came up with more than one location with it, so IMO that kind of indecision/uncertainty is a clear sign of something being wrong, since these kind of puzzles are meant to be "figure out what I was thinking" and not "guess what I was thinking". It's the same kind of problem I have with the day 4 riddle, because I have a couple of things in mind and none of them really stand out from the rest, so I must be missing something.
