Yeah, I had my doubts too. Can’t blame people for being cautious.

Anyways, this looks like it’s gonna take some time. I’ll post anything if I successfully unlock it.

Having a bit of a problem. I write the password given at the top but it seems to not be working. Is this part of the game?

The password is 4b594d (Thanks, Luis!)

Now that I look at it again, it looks like two words with a period after each. Could we get another hint?

What. This is a different picture than the one people in the IRC have been looking at the whole time. That one was a .jpg.

Hex distortion…
I’m thinking that one picture that we couldn’t make out was a distortion of a hex code.

So, the clue for stage 3 is dotdash. He also said that there is a link between all of the words we get (treadmill, distortion, word 3[whatever it will be] etc.).

It’s morse guys.
I opened it and put it on soundcloud for y’all.
(Got that w/out the dotdash clue like a boss)

I think it’s PLCLUB?

Spacing and the placement of spaces matters in Morse code. It determines the outcome.
