Decade Levels 1 - 10 / Decade 06
« on: May 01, 2020, 08:51:25 PM »
Maybe not the most fun to solve (though I bet it is), this level is actually one of the most fun times I have had creating a level. No lie.  :gettowork:

Levels 21 - 30 / Re: Level 23
« on: April 23, 2020, 02:53:30 PM »
The first few levels told you to look in and at certain things every level. If you are doing that, you will see something new. Which is what the title and image and hinted at phrase all point to. When you see it, name it.

Looks like they are doing long-term maintenance. You can get it form FossHub though.

General Chit-Chat / The Final(?) Side Quest - A Contest
« on: April 20, 2020, 02:52:34 PM »
We had some amazing ideas for the last 3 side quests spots and as a result have added Triple Scoop Trivia and noisavnI to the list. That leaves one spot remaining. And now it is your turn!!

The Prize: A side quest you get to name, help design and build with full credit on the credit page.

The Rules: This will be a timed, but running contest set up in multiple parts. The first part will be to gather ideas. The second part will be to create a voting poll to determine the top 2 contenders. The third part will be a final description of the side quests in action and a cry for your final vote. The winner will be decided at that point.

Everyone is encouraged to come up with a unique and interesting side quest idea and post that idea here. The idea should be written using the following format:

Quest Name: Name your side quest
Basic premise of the quest: a brief 2 or 3 sentence explanation of the side quest
Level of difficulty: Using the 4 main trails (Numeric, Alpha, Roman and Egyptian) where should your quest be located to match the surrounding difficulty level?
Type of quest: This is either "inclusive" meaning all levels are in the same directory and grouped together, or "sporadic" meaning they are spread throughout the site (think Secret Levels)

Once you have your post made and submitted, you are then to go through and "Say Thanks" to all the other posts with ideas you would like to see. You can thank your own, of course, and any others that you like. However, I discourage you from thanking all the submissions, as this is counter-productive.

Once this has run long enough, I will take a certain amount of ideas that have the most "thanks" and create a voting poll, moving us to step 2 in this process.

Get those creative juices flowing and have some fun with it!

Let's see those ACWoT Side Quest ideas!!  :ahhhh: :blob3:


NOTE: You do not have to submit an idea to "Thank" those of the others. But your like/vote is very important! If you are not submitting an idea, please still go through the submissions and like the ones that you would want to play anyway!

Hi!

On your phone you can write before https "view-source:", and you can see source code.

Note, that this does NOT work on iPhone/iPad (thanks trinih)

There are Apple apps that will do this, though most cost money. You can also Google "view source on iPhone" and find that there is a work-around. You will need to create a bookmark of any page, then edit the bookmark to include some JavaScript code. Once done, you can go to any page, then click the bookmark you created to show you the source code for that page.

It is a bit cumbersome, but is possible.

The Original CWoT used this code a lot. Had our own name for it. The image title is a clue for that. Eggs soon follow.

From Admin / Re: Current Known Issues
« on: April 14, 2020, 03:07:23 PM »
Some random members joining will still experience issues with the creation of their Member Portal page.

However, I have made the MP self-diagnose these problems and offers you steps to correct them without needing to do much work or create a new profile. If there is any problem with your MP, you will get the chance to fix it yourself.

If there aren't any problems with your particular MP page, you won't have to do anything. As always, if you still experience any issues, feel free to contact me through PM or email.

Some levels are designed to make you feel that way. #NotSorry

You need to understand what it is you are looking for. Once you find the physical thing, then you get your next clue, which the title refers to. Put it all together, with the help of Google, if you've never heard of it before, and you will have an answer.

Maybe you Need to Pay less Attention to what the Words say and focus more on What they Are Telling you.

Think about your hint tag. It literally tells you what you need to do, or "be."

Well, I don't know if we were sure they all solved easily. But we did ensure they are fair, and try hard to make sure there are alternate solve methods :wink6:

If you want your Private Message (PM) inbox to look and perform more like a regular mailbox (and the old CWoT style):

Click on "My Messages" in the forum navigation menu.
Above the messages list you will see a link for "Messages" "Actions" and "Preferences"
Hover over Preferences and then check "Change Settings."

Make your settings like this:

Display personal messages: As a Conversation
Show most recent personal messages at top.: Checked
Show a popup when I receive new messages.: Checked (optional)
Save a copy of each personal message in my sent items by default.: Checked
Remove the inbox label when applying another label: Checked

Remember to save your changes.

From Admin / Meet the ACWoT Team
« on: March 24, 2020, 07:27:29 PM »
Another Clever Waste of Time cannot run smoothly and operate with precision without a team.

I am proud to announce the TEAM ACWoT! :cheer:

Admin: BLiZZ
Moderators: Ariel, MissIllusioned
Quality Assurance: NinjaDucky

Each of the team will make a post here to let you know when they are available, how best to contact them and a little about themselves.

In that, I will start.

I am BLiZZ, your Admin and owner of ACWoT. This little game started as an idea 15 years ago. During that time it grew to the most popular riddle online with over 17.5 million visitors. I was also the largest of its kind on line with 1000 levels.

Towards the end of the 12th year, life crept in and I decided it was time to pull the plug. I left the FB page up as a lifeline, and the players tugged on it hard.

So we are back. Brand new and improved!  :boing:

With a lot of work, major improvements and a lot of nostalgia, Another Clever Waste of Time was born. I plan to continue building and making CWoT the biggest, best and most popular riddle ever!

If you have any questions, comments, need help or anything else, you can send a PM through the forum message system here at any time. I don't have set hours, and will respond as soon as possible.

If you want to send an email, you can reach me through the contact page at any time.
