[GENERAL/PUZZLE] White Box Phenomenon

It is the current collective decision of the members in the IRC chat that the small, clickable white boxes hidden in each puzzle are for some unspecified purpose. It is also believed that there is one box per puzzle, although not all of them have been found as of this post being, well, posted. I am going to include in this post screenshots depicting the locations of the boxes that I know the location of. However, since I have already clicked them, the actual box will not be there for you to see.

Another Phenomena

IN every puzzle page, there is a tiny infinity symbol. Always on the top left of the wood strip above the answer box. I zoomed in & caught a screen shot. May be nothing, but Kona was told EVERYTHING means something - the only mistake was the gaffer in the first video - that really was a mistake & she heard that from the MS people at Bellagio. Also, they were shocked we figured out the chocolates Wink

Anyway, here's the pic:

Looks sort of like puzzle pieces to me. The first thing that came to mind was the US seal ... eagle with feathers and arrows. The arrows are curved though, so that's not it.

Maybe if we clipped out the boxes and then rearranged them with Photoshop?

Edit: Took screencaps and put what we have in Photoshop. All the pieces are the same size, and the parts that look like they fit together (e.g the "borders") ... do. Don't think we have enough info, because it doesn't look like a 4x4 grid will hold everything, plus, we'd be short 4 pieces.

Do you suppose we should click them all, once they are found?

Note also that these puzzle pieces (?) do not appear when you are not logged in. I might have volunteered to be the guinea pig for "never clicked one", but I had already clicked one.

And...not found (yet?) on Current Events or Pocket Watches or Sundial?

ETA: never mind, i just clicked the one below and it just brings up the info about the points, sorry about that.

Shall we assume 9 white squares per puzzle box? that way we don't get the full jigsaw til the end of play.
Also interesting to note is that the two 'wings' aren't symetrical, the right hand one has one less diamond than the the left hand one.
My boyfriend has signed up but hasn't played (and won't) so all his white boxes are eminantly clickable!

Also note that there seem to be hidden text entry boxes... or at least areas where pointer changes to a text entry cursor. However, no text is present (or selectable) and there is no evidence that text has been entered. Additionally, the context sensitive right click menu changes from regular flash control to text selection.

I found that the text in there was only either solved or unsolved. Select all then copy & paste into notepad (or whatever) worked for me

Good work...Also hold onto the 3D Interrobang Cube.

It looks like it will be a 6 by 6=36 squares (8X4=32), + I personally think the "Interrobang 3D Cube" from the Calenders puzzle is a part of the final puzzle picture that will develop (the pattern does fit in w/ the border edges if all squares are made the same size on the grid-May or Jan.). I also see an unfinished treble hook forming between the "Calendars" and the "Cuckooclocks" pcs.

Yeah, I'm nuts, I actually put that 3D box together and I see more in it if I look at the google overhead view of the San Jose AMD Bldg. (a type of map perhaps?)

Of course we can only guess at this point as I'm sure there are many more pcs. to come when those other 3 puzzle boxes are unlocked.

BTW, anyone have a copy of Herodotus The Histories By Penguin Classics? Was interested in the Maps (I understand there are 4 in the front of the book)...Wanted to compare something.
