The WWN wasn't always like it is today. There was a time when their view was slightly biased. It was a time when you needed to know certain information to be able to move safely and/or unseen through the wizarding world. This month, you will have a total of 8 small tasks that can help you keep a low profile with the Muggle-Born Registration Commission.

R U L E S
- All HEX terms and rules apply.
- No Cheating. All work must be your own.
- Please only submit ONE entry for this contest. If you submit more than one entry, only the first will be considered.
- Entries should be posted in this hidden replies thread by
April 28th at 11:59PM HEX time.
- All 100% correct entries will be randomized for prizes.
- If you have any questions, please post them in this thread or owl Starr..

Under each task there stands "Solve X and post your answer in this thread." Is it the same thread every time? Or are there 8 different threads we should post our answers in?

For task 6 - do we need to use exactly 100 characters? Or can it be less?

I have posted the answer for the fiorst task the trivia straightaway because I've thought that that answer should have neem answered in that specific thread, just that and npw I've lost the opportunity to participate in the contenst.
Maybe it shoud be amended and put the answer thread only at the end because it is very confusing and now I am out from this contest.

Wait, if we only finish one puzzle and submit it, but we want to do the others later, can we still submit other puzzles? The thread says one entry only.

That is a little confusing to me since there is a submission thread for each task. I havent started yet but want to know if I should wait to submit all tasks at once.

Well I have started and unfortunately now only my first submission will count leaving me unable to carry on with the contest. I am quite disappointed.

do we submit all entries at once on this thread?
https://www.hexrpg.com/f/109/165674#beginning

it looks like at each task it also tells us to submit at this thread (same as above)
https://www.hexrpg.com/f/109/165674#beginning

does it mean we submit only one entry for each puzzle? or one entry total with all the puzzles we want to solve?

From the rules

Quote:
- Please only submit ONE entry for this contest. If you submit more than one entry, only the first will be considered.




I think all puzzles have to be completed to be eligible for prizes.
