ooo *exciting*

Kosmopol,
Try telling him that you think it might be yours, but you'll need to see a photo to be sure.
Maybe ask him to snail mail it to you?
Or put up a 'found' poster somewhere near the cafe? Then hope someone picks up the trail in Paris.....

If you feel uncomfortable saying it's your then you can say it's mine! Tell him I can offer a reward but we need pics to make sure it's what I lost!

I sent a photo of a tricorder to the email after he asked for an image. I have not gotten a response yet.

CA and all the other elements are cover names, it looks like -- there are real names.

Candir looks like the Spanish speaker.
Karnis is "Fe," maybe the French speaker from earlier.
Janus is the leader, possibly the English speaker.

I tried to translate the German part (PHPChatUser3)

Quote:

PHPChatUser1: テスト中、テスト中。誰かいる?僕が時間より早いのはわかってるんだけど、誰か応答もらえた?

PHPChatUser4: Usa el teclado.
PHPChatUser3: Was glaubst du, was ich hier mache? "Fe", bist du das? What do you think what I am doing here? "FE", is it you?
PHPChatUser4: Sí. ¿Quién más está?
PHPChatUser3: Niemand. Es funktioniert nicht. Toller Plan. Nobody. It does not work. Nice Plan.
PHPChatUser4: Fue idea de Karnis.
PHPChatUser3: "Fe’s" Idee. Und ja, er hat nicht nachgedacht. "Fe's" idea. And yes, he has not thought about it
PHPChatUser1: もしもし?
PHPChatUser4: Parece que es esto.
PHPChatUser3: Bist du OK, Kleiner? Are you OK, peewee?
PHPChatUser1: だと思う。あれ、うまく届かなかったんでしょ?僕、自分のちゃんとできたと思えなかったんだよね。君ら、だれも応答しなかったし。
PHPChatUser4: No te preocupes. Creo que algo sí ha salido. Buen trabajo.
PHPChatUser3: Lüg ihn nicht an. Er ist kein Idiot. Don't lie to him. He is not an Idiot.
PHPChatUser4: Cállate, Janus.
PHPChatUser1: カーニスどこ?ここにいるはずじゃないの?
PHPChatUser3: "Fe". Bin ich hier der Einzige, der unsere Decknamen benutzt? "Fe". Am I the only one here who uses our cover names?
PHPChatUser4: El viene, se ve que el escribió este sitio por alguna razón.
PHPChatUser3: Habe deinen speziellen Freund auch nicht gesehen. Wir verschwenden hier unsere Zeit. Have not seen your special friend, either. We are loosing out time here
PHPChatUser5: Sorry, I’m late. There was a problem.
PHPChatUser4: ¿Estás bien? ¿Donde estás ?
PHPChatUser5: Yeah, it doesn’t matter. Glad to talk to everyone.
PHPChatUser3: Du sprichst nicht mit jedem. You are not talking to everyone.
PHPChatUser5: What?
PHPChatUser1: 僕へまやらかしたみたい。暗号がよくわからなくて。ごめん。
PHPChatUser5: No, no.
PHPChatUser1: 多分もう一回トライできるよ。何が起こったのか見当はついてるし。
PHPChatUser5: It’s ok. We’ll figure this out.
PHPChatUser4: No creo que nada de lo que cambiemos vaya a ayudar. Deberíamos preguntar a alguien.
PHPChatUser3: Wen denn genau? Who exavtly?
PHPChatUser4: No lo sé.
PHPChatUser5: Didn’t “Ca” mention someone?
PHPChatUser3: Er ist nicht hier. He is not here.
PHPChatUser5: He hasn’t checked in?
PHPChatUser3: Was glaubst du, was ich meinte!? What do you think what I meant!?
PHPChatUser4: Estoy seguro que el fue detenido.
PHPChatUser1: ずっとこれをし続けていいのかな?僕、君達のだれか一人に会いにいったほうがいいんじゃ?
PHPChatUser5: No. “Ca” was right, splitting up gives us our best shot.
PHPChatUser1: それって僕らをつかまえるが難しくなるから?
PHPChatUser5: We’ll worry about that when and if we have to.
PHPChatUser4: Debemos esperar a “Ca” y él nos dirá cual es el siguiente paso.
PHPChatUser3: Es könnte schon zu spät sein für den nächsten Schritt, vielleicht haben wir unsere einzige Chance schon vertan!! Du hast ja keine Ahnung was hier los ist!!! It could be already too late for the next step, perhaps we already have blown our only chance. You have no idea what is going on here!!!
PHPChatUser5: Neither do you!!! Knock it off - I can get to you quickly. We don’t need you to lose control, again.
PHPChatUser4: Nada de esto está ayudando.
PHPChatUser3: Sklave. Slave.
PHPChatUser1: 僕、彼を助けに行ったほうがいい?
PHPChatUser3: Wirklich lustig! Really funny!
PHPChatUser5: He’ll be fine.
PHPChatUser3: Ich verschwinde jetzt, wenn er nicht kommt. Nur so als Warnung für euch. Wir haben es versucht, es hat nicht funktioniert - ich habe meine Schuldigkeit getan. I will get away fro here if he will not appear. Just as a warning for you. We have tried it, it has not worked - I have done my part.
PHPChatUser4: ¿Y a dónde vas exactamente?
PHPChatUser3: Laß das meine Sorge sein. That's my problem
PHPChatUser5: Just stay out of sight this time. I think we’ve been noticed, we didn’t clean up properly.
PHPChatUser3: Nehme ich jetzt schon Befehle von dir entgegen? Nur weil du unten im Salz wusstest, was zu tun ist - als ich fast meinen Arm verloren habe. Do I now receive order from you? Only because you knew what to do down in the salt - when O almost lost my arm.
PHPChatUser5: Your problem in the salt is that you gave up too quickly. Maybe if you spent some time figuring out the right trajectory.
PHPChatUser3: Das wird nichts helfen. That would not help
PHPChatUser5: Just try. We’ll meet back here in 2.
PHPChatUser3: Ja, ja. Ich bin weg. Yes, yes. I leave
____PHPChatUser3 has disconnected____
PHPChatUser1: 誰か僕のこと見てるみたい-ちょっと待って。
PHPChatUser5: You sure?
PHPChatUser4: ¿Cómo eran?
PHPChatUser1: ちがった。通り過ぎて行った。
PHPChatUser4: Relájate, todos necesitamos relajarnos y pensar bien las cosas, y no actuar como animales asustados. Nadie nos mira está en tu mente.
PHPChatUser5: I’m working on the magnetic interference. Can you look at the frequency stuff?
PHPChatUser1: うん、もちろん。それくらいできるよ。ちょっとリサーチすればね。
PHPChatUser5: Good, we need a little more time.
PHPChatUser1: まだ時間、あると思う?
PHPChatUser4: Lo tendrás
PHPChatUser5: You know when to come back?
PHPChatUser1: もし君が必要になったら、早めに連絡するよ。それでもいい?
PHPChatUser5: OK, stay hidden and safe
PHPChatUser1: がんばってみる。
____PHPChatUser1 has disconnected____
PHPChatUser5: It was his very first run.
PHPChatUser4: Deberías haberme dejado venir contigo.
PHPChatUser5: I hate feeling like this. We have to get it right, and fast.
PHPChatUser4: Trajabaré con la frecuencia tal vez sea eso.
PHPChatUser4: ¿Aún estás ahí?
PHPChatUser5: Yes, sorry. I’m here.
PHPChatUser5: Thank you, Candir.
PHPChatUser4: Cuídate dejamé saber si me necesitas.

Well this is the best I could come up with... I can't for the life of me figure out who is who by name; seems like there's some conflict in who is calling whom what... Confused

Quote:

1: Test, test, test, test. Am I early? Anyone here?
1 has disconnected
2: Intersection of Rue de la Fédération and Rue de Presles
[2]2 has disconnected[/i]
3: Kloidn*&%$)#mns
3: *******?
3: ??????
3: *^*&!!!!!!!
4: Use the keyboard.
3: What do you think what I'm doing? Are you "Fe"?
4: Yes. Who else would I be?
3: Nobody. It doesn't work. Great plan.
4: It was Karnis' idea.
3: "Fe's" idea. And yes, he hasn't thought about it.
1: Hello?
4: Looks like him.
3: Are you ok, kid?
1: I think. What, you did not find it? [Me, and I did not feel I had my right.] And you didn't tell everyone.
4: Don't worry. I think it worked out. Good job.
3: Don't lie to him. He's not an idiot.
4: Shut up, Janus.
1: Where is Karnis? [Should you not be here?]
3: "Fe". Am I the only one who uses the pseudonym?
4: Next is that he wrote to this site for some reason.
3: I haven't seen your special friend. We're wasting our time here.
5: Sorry, I’m late. There was a problem.
4: Are you ok? How are you?
5: Yeah, it doesn’t matter. Glad to talk to everyone.
3: You're not speaking with everyone.
5: What?
1: I want to be [yarakashita]. I don't know encryptions very well. Sorry.
5: No, no.
1: Maybe I'll try again. Guess that's my luck.
5: It’s ok. We’ll figure this out.
4: I don't think anything will help change that. We should ask someone.
3: Who exactly, then?
4: I don't know.
5: Didn’t “Ca” mention someone?
3: He's not here.
5: He hasn’t checked in?
3: What do you think I said?
4: I believe he was arrested.
1: [How can I keep it long? I'm better I went to see one of us? You?]
5: No. “Ca” was right, splitting up gives us our best shot.
1: [Would it be harder to catch us from it?]
5: We’ll worry about that when and if we have to.
4: We should expect "Ca" and he'll tell us what to do next.
3: It might already be too late for the next step, we may have missed out only chance! You have no idea what we're doing here!
5: Neither do you!!! Knock it off - I can get to you quickly. We don’t need you to lose control, again.
4: None of this is helping.
3: Slave.
1: Should I help him?
3: That's really funny!
5: He’ll be fine.
3: I'll leave if he doesn't come. Just to warn you. We've tried, but it's didn't work - I've done my job.
4: And where are you going exactly?
3: Let me worry about that.
5: Just stay out of sight this time. I think we’ve been noticed, we didn’t clean up properly.
3: Do I now take orders from you? Just because when you were down in the salt and you knew what to do - when I almost lost my arm.
5: Your problem in the salt is that you gave up too quickly. Maybe if you spent some time figuring out the right trajectory.
3: That will not help.
5: Just try. We’ll meet back here in 2.
3: Yes, yes. I'm gone.
3 has disconnected
1: [I think you see that someone else - just wait.]
5: You sure?
4: How were they?
1: [Different. I went past.]
4: Relax, we all need to think about good things, and not act like frightened animals. Nobody reads our minds.
5: I’m working on the magnetic interference. Can you look at the frequency stuff?
1: Oh, yeah. I can work on it, [if you research a little.]
5: Good, we need a little more time.
1: [Still, I think?]
4: We will.
5: You know when to come back?
1: If you're needed, I'll contact you as soon as possible. Ok?
5: OK, stay hidden and safe
1: Good luck.
1 has disconnected
5: It was his very first run.
4: [He should have stopped coming to you.]
5: I hate feeling like this. We have to get it right, and fast.
4: It often works out like that.
4: Are you still there?
5: Yes, sorry. I’m here.
5: Thank you, Candir.
4: Take care, and let me know if you need me.
4 has disconnected
5 has disconnected


So for pseudonyms, we can assume "Fe", "Ca", "Si", and "Al".
For real names, Karnis, Janus and Candir.

It almost sounds like a scene out of STIV, the crew deciding how to proceed Razz
So, are these users human? Federation? Or are we facing some antagonists here?


edit: adjusted a bit from auz's german translation

Its almost like we stumbled into the planning for a terrorist plot or something...

Maybe they want to blow up the Enterprise while its still under construction.. and its up to us to save her!

Then again, maybe not..

Verrry interesting tho..

Yesterday, before I posted about Malak0's e-mail, I sent him 2 messages- One assuming he was in-game, one assuming he wasn't. I got back these two responses:

Quote:
ME: I had such a device stolen from me near that intersection... a wild-eyed man grabbed it and ran away shouting something I couldn't understand. I would love to recover it; it's an important communications tool.

HIM: Stolen? You must tell the cops... non?



Quote:
ME: I am sorry, I do not speak French. The item you found is part of a game, for the new Star Trek movie. The makers of the movie were having a press conference in Paris, and they had someone drop this. We who are playing the game would be very interested in retrieving this item. Or at least seeing it.

If you are interested, you can find information about the game here: http://forums.unfiction.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=2771

HIM: I understand- i recive many strange emails! I try to get a USB wire to show you photo. What is the device? What do I do to switch on?


I'm going to keep up the OOG approach, as he was much more responsive to that.

Actually I also sent to Malak0 3 messages. My first message I've posted already. Here two another:
Quote:

Me
.
sorry for bothering you again. I hope you're OK and the strange device hasn't killed you (just a joke Smile)
Anyway, I wanted to ask how are you. And perhaps I know somebody, whom belong this gadget. Perhaps you can get reward.
And perhaps we can help you to switch the device on .
Anyways, take care
and best greetings
Malak0
Everyone knows a person who owns the device. How can it be you?


Everyone? And who owns the device? Weird...

Another message was the sheep picture.

Malak0's response:

Quote:
OK- dessine moi un mouton.


UPDATE. Their Japanese and German are really authentic - withour any mistake. I suppose, they are native speakers. (I like German style btw.)

There are a lot of people writing to Malak0 saying that the device belongs to them. If he is in-game, perhaps we need to figure out a way to convince him it belongs to us?

Maybe something in today's chat transcription? Re-reading it though, nothing really stands out... Confused
