    Although I didn't end up finishing it, I must say this was a lot of fun. You conducted this amazingly as well! We should definitely have more community events like this!

    Good job Elsa.
    We'll discuss the key choice soon and I'll be editing this post with all the answers to the riddles for those who are wondering how it works :)

    Right, so the first riddle is as follows:
    The first post contains binary which can easily be decoded online. It will result with
    Code:
    Congrats.
    Your solution is my favorite number.
    Oh you don't know what it is ? :(
    Ask me!
    http://furchee.com/thekey/level2.rar
    The answer to that was 6, that is in fact my favorite number. (This was more for me knowing how many of you were going at it!)
    You used the answer from each riddle to open the next rar containing the next riddle, respectively.

    The second riddle was as follows:
    Code:
    You have me.
    You use me daily.
    I am incredibly flexible.
    I am part of you but I can still be foreign when others use me.
    What am I?
    The answer to that one was Tongue. Another popular answer was Language.

    The third riddle was:
    Code:
    Q29uZ3JhdHVsYXRpb25zISBNb3Zpbmcgb24uLi4NCg0KRHAscnlvLHJkIG8gO29sciB5cCBvLHNob21yIHlqciBlcHQ7ZiBzZCBzIG5yeXlydCBbO3N2ciBkcCxyeW8scmQgeWpyIHBtO3UgZHA7aXlvcG0gb2QgeXAgbnNtIHlqciw=
    This was encoded in BASE64. Another simple online converter would convert it for you. The result from decoding that was:

    Congratulations! Moving on...
    Dp,ryo,rd o ;olr yp o,shomr yjr ept;f sd s nryyrt [;svr dp,ryo,rd yjr pm;u dp;iyopm od yp nsm yjr,

    The 4th riddle was the encoded text above which seems like jibberish ... until you look at your keyboard and look at the left key next to each of them.
    The result was "Sometimes I like to imagine the world as a better place sometimes the only solution is to ban the." (I missed the m :( )
    The password to that archive was "ban" respectively.

    The fifth riddle was:
    I am one folder away. My name is Steve.

    This was a very very simple so I was surprised how many people were running around looking for a man named Steve.
    All you had to do was read the first line a few more times. "Steve" is a folder in the directory with all the archives.
    http://furchee.com/thekey/Steve/ will result in a new folder with the last 3 respected riddles.

    The sixth riddle was:
    Code:
    4440555444553309996668809330777744666885553022330333777444336637777099966688777033344466255502226663_330444777702224433_33_33388777999337777
    This one was a lovely little gem that I thought of. I understand that most of you never had a phone before the smart phones, but we 90's kids (BACK IN MY DAY...) had to press number keys repeatedly to get letters out of it. That is how we used to text baby!
    The answer to all the key presses results in (with the underscores being wait commands):
    I like you we should be friends your final code is cheefuryes.
    And no, I do not use that as any passwords. Nice try scammers.

    After using cheefuryes as the password to the last archive and riddle, it contained:
    Code:
    I am impressed. Your skills are deemed worthy of this prize.
    Your LAST riddle is as follows:
    
    23,5,3,8,5,5,20,1,8,19,1,18,5,14,20,22,5,18,25,3,12,5,22,5,18.2,21,20,23,5,1,18,5,22,5,18,25,6,1,19,20.
    These numbers indicated letters in the English language in order of course.
    This when converted read: wecheetahsarentverycleverbutweareveryfast.
    aka "We cheetahs aren't very clever but we are very fast."

    The password to the last archive was the key word "fast" !

    And in the last riddle (which I didn't even count, hence the 7 and not 8 riddles) was text simply written in croatian (I lived there people, don't be surprised I know the language) and it read:

    Code:
    Napokon si tu. Napokon mogu da se riješim ove tuge. Molim te kaži gepardu da "Nakon svega na ovome svijetu, nemamo razlog odustati. Jer život je jedna velika igra i svi smo tu da pobijedimo."
    Hvala što si igrao moju glupu igru. :)
    
    Geparde, Moj rezultat je "bodljikava"
    ...which translated into:
    Code:
    You're finally here. Can finally be rid of this sorrow. Please tell cheetah that "After all, in this world, we have no reason to give up. Because life is one big game and we're all here to win."
    Thank you for playing my silly game. :)
    
    Cheetahs, my result is "barbed"
    
    That's it, thanks for playing!

    I couldn't find Steve for like an hour because I was putting a lowercase "s" instead of an uppercase one. :eek:

    Lawl. I don't uppercase only because it's grammatically correct!
