    Nice try, but the only hint is the message title!

    #114 3 months ago

    is this the title you speak of "Get the Message in Post #1?"
    and this has something to do about it too "I will send them congratulations."

    Please read through the PM I sent earlier, it gives the title to each of the three messages I’ve done and advice on how to use the previous two to see how the titles relate to the hidden messages. The title for this one, as stated in the first post, is “No Question, Stuck in the Middle.” That’s the only clue, the rest is for everyone to figure out. Once you figure out what the hidden message is, it will tell you what to do, just like the previous two did. Thanks.

    If you like these, you should know that there's a website with harder ones where you can win real stuff. Like $10K, jewelry, coins, pirate booty, etc. Forrest Fenn's treasure may have been found but there are plenty of other people who've stashed stuff to find, and many more offering "armchair" puzzles where you don't have to go BOTG to cash in. Here's a link to the largest assemblage of "treasure hunt" puzzles:

    https://mysteriouswritings.proboards.com

    Check out the "Great American Treasure Hunt" for example; four 10K prizes given away in the past few months for figuring out puzzles somewhat like these, just far more intense.

    By the way, thanks for doing this.

    If I made these a lot more intense, which I have done elsewhere (I’ve used them in putting together road rallies), I’m afraid I would lose a lot of the participation in these threads. And thanks for the thanks!

    I'd love to see harder pinball-specific ones!

    This last one was not difficult, I knew what to do immediately. Won't say why, that might read like a clue...

    Like I said earlier, I was thinking the second one might have been too easy. And yet someone here also said this third one was the first they could figure out.

    You got it! Good job!

    Anyone else up for the challenge?

    Yes

    NO

    Here is the solution to this message puzzle. Again, I wanted to wait until I launched a another puzzle before this reveal.
    “No Question, Stuck in the Middle” in this case meant to look at the middle word in each sentence that is not a question.

    The original message:
    “Why do so many try to guess without solving?
    They try to post without the solution.
    This time, for sure, only sleuths will get it.
    If you have the time, try it.
    But will many put in the effort to solve this?
    I will say a good word for those who get it.
    And absolutely, yes I will.
    This is not do or die, but for fun.
    Is this one reverse-engineer-proof?
    The answer comes through no way but the message.
    Try this or not, whichever will be perfectly fine.
    It may be for you, but it may not.
    I hope some want to try again.
    Sleuths will then respond correctly.
    I will send them congratulations.
    Will many pinsiders give this one a try?
    That just might make me think this was worthwhile.
    Please take a few minutes.
    You can try at six pm, six am, noon, or midnight.
    This can be deciphered with a bit of effort.
    I am not the only one who will know.
    Will others figure it out?
    Likely all the sleuths will.
    Put in a good word for all who try.
    I think that those who “solved” the others will try this.
    This will go on for as long as people solve it.
    Thanks to all of the pinsiders who do this.
    Maybe this won’t be subject to question this time.
    Does anyone remember the ‘letter y’ controversy?”

    The solution: “Post only the word yes or no, whichever you want, then send me a PM with only the word ‘solved’ as the subject”

    Thanks to all who participated in this. I am concurrently starting a fourth hidden message puzzle thread, so there will be another one for those who want to try it.
