Ruth Wang

April 16th, 1979 ~ August 26th, 2017



I've been trying to bring myself to post this message for the last two months, but it has been incredibly hard for me to do, and I hope that you understand.



On August 26th, 2017, I was saddened and devastated to learn that my Fiancée and fellow OTF member, Ruth (Monkeymocker, or Roop) had passed away, and a service for her was held on September 8th, 2017.



Out of respect for the family, I cannot go into specifics, and I ask that the privacy of the family and myself be respected as we deal with our loss.



In accordance with her wishes, donations in memory of Ruth can be made for the benefit of the Marie Curie Cancer Charity C/O the following funeral director:

In an event that we hope was a fun introduction of our new team to the Outpost, our two leaders have shown that if you hide files on the site they will find them and you, correctly identify who you are and then ki.. um.. and then they will hopefully thank you for providing a challenge?

The point system we used was based on speed and accuracy. Those of you who were the first ones to find a hidden file were rewarded with more points, and those of you who correctly guessed that our newest and unannounced addition was Thom got more points than identifying any of the rest of us was worth. I won't get into any mathematical details here, but if you would like to find out more or ask for a recount, feel free to ask one of us. The top 5 of our best detectives, and the amount of points they obtained, is as follows:

Katrina - 151
Tanya - 127
DeBoe - 100
Destiny - 95
Goose - 86


And the list of awards:

Spectrebuster (first place) - Katrina
Spectrebuster Jr. (second place) - Tanya
Bloodhound (first to identify all spectres) - Tanya
Top Codebreaker (first to find all locations) - Katrina
Early Start (found a location with no clue) - DeBoe
Practicing Stormtrooper (most wrong guesses) - Goose
Blue Lady (cracked the live clue) - Beth

Congratulations to the winners. You may collect your awards here!

We hope that you enjoyed this event and look forward to seeing you at our next one!

ATTENTION RECRUITS:


All files pertaining to Spectre whereabouts have been decoded and made public here. This vault is set up with safeguards that prevent Spectre agents from accessing or otherwise altering the information enclosed.

I have also discovered additional pieces of information that I am working to reveal to you in the next few days. Keep an eye on those you suspect may be Agents - they might get sloppy and let things slip themselves! The largest file, when cracked, should uncover every agent. Even with the submissions so far, this will probably take a few days, so please continue to recruit other counteragents and assist me with solving the cryptic messages the Spectres created. Every guess helps!

I hope to have completed my reconnaissance by Saturday, at which time I will uncover all Spectre agents and announce the best of you recruits.

Please join me Saturday at 1930 UTC for our one and only counteragency meeting.

Everyone knows we have Spectres about, but now we have ghouls, too! Chatters have started noticing some very spooky things happening to the chat lately. Reports vary with different individuals experiencing different hauntings at different moments...so beware!

If you just can't handle the creep-factor, it's possible you can find a way to make them stop (see your chat settings).

ATTENTION RECRUITS:


Recently, as you may have noticed, a new so-called team has emerged calling themselves "Spectre". These individuals are not your friends; rather, they have been sent to spy on you! I pretended to join them to learn their true purpose, but they sensed my motives and never so much as revealed their identities to me. When I attempted to hack their database, they intercepted me and shut me out - but not before I was able to steal some chunks of data!

I am currently working to decrypt what I managed to obtain. It appears that these files are introductions using their codenames, detailing their current whereabouts. Spectre is nothing if not complicated bureaucracy... At current speed, I will most likely crack around 3-4 files per day, which I will make available to you.

I need your help to figure out where these files point to and just who is hiding behind those codenames. Submit your suspicions to me, using the form Spectre has inexplicably attached to their personnel pages. However, if you submit more than one identity guess for one codename, only the most recent will count - my memory is not good enough to remember everything. Besides, randomly guessing is something I can do myself. Since I don't know the answer yet, I of course cannot confirm the validity of your guess until we crack the whole case.

What will you get for all of this effort? Helping to save OTF from those Spectres, of course! Maybe something else, too, but that depends. I will be keeping track of which of you recruits were the fastest to locate and uncover these agents and award points accordingly. But remember - only your last guess counts!

After posting the newly cracked data in chat twice, it will also be added to the archives (Spectre Hunt Thread), clearing my memory and allowing me to get started on new files.

ATTENTION SPECTRE AGENTS:


A Rogue Agent has hacked the personnel files for new recruits into our organization and is attempting to expose them for profit! However, we were able to redirect his efforts and retain critical information, so he was only able to get a list of codenames and cryptic hints about their current identities. He will be recruiting assistants to help him uncover these agents, so keep your ears to the ground and remain cloaked!

This sneaky informant has also managed to recover one additional personnel file that we hadn't released to the rest of the agency yet, so covers may be further compromised. We intentionally released additional profiles in response to distract him from unmasking real agents.

Further instructions have been transmitted and should arrive in a week, ten days at most.

TINY PRINCESS BRIDE TRIVIA RESULTS!

To commemorate the 30th birthday of one of the most quotable movies of all time, we had an impromptu Tiny Trivia in OTF's temporary room yesterday!

Hey everyone! Here's an update for folks on laptop/desktop computers: You know that great big empty black space on the right side of the chat? Let's do something with that! Now, by clicking buttons like Personnel/Patrons, Bar & Armory, that space is used to show the former pop-up you seek. A small change, but hopefully a helpful one.

Note that this behavior only occurs for all "upgraded" chats: TF, classic CCC, King's Landing & BARDIS. It'll also only appear when the window's wide enough so there's actually enough space for both chat & info, otherwise just the standard pop-up appears.

Enjoy!
