Well, the ARG seems to not be starting till January 17th of next year. So you might be able to play, but, at the same time, this seems fishy...

THe page is rather blank, won't you say?

Looks like you have to fill in the form and wait for an email. I might fire one off but not sure how much time I'll have.

Edit

The temple may not open until 1/17/17 but they are playing now. I filled out the form about my earliest memory and received the following..

The thing that gets me about the picture is the stuff... Is it post to be a word puzzle where you put the images together? Or is it post to be a riddle?

Im actually stumped...

Oh, hey! Haven't been here for awhile.
I got the email also and filled the application. Now waiting for a reply.

I looked up those hieroglyphs and the bird is 'a' and the other one is 'g'. But that's all I got.

The bird could also be "Vulture" The egyptians had a few different bird hieroglyphs.

Edit - Actually you're right it's gonna be "A" and "G" for the hieroglyphs. I think we're looking for a social media handle. I'm not having much luck staring at it though so I guess I'll send my application answers tomorrow and see what happens.

I tried emailing aes72sgSPLATwizardcurriculum.com Hotmail sent a message back saying delivery failed.

Sent the answers to my questions and asked for a clue to finding them.

Interesting questions.
1. Mickey Mouse in Fantasia. Although I guess he was a sorcerers apprentice and not really a wizard but he still made the brooms dance.
2. A kitten’s happy purr
3. H
4. No snow is good snow. I live in a van.
5. Tea

I attempted a search and find mission but seem to have failed. Do you have any other clues?

I was just climbing into bed when my email binged twice...

Naha Cherry, your GOOD. This trailhead looks super Cool so many THX. Reckon booba will confim he was simply alerting us all to a pressing Uf issue.

Well, am clueless regarding the "hideme.jpg" that was attached to an email stating I'm now, like you, "a member of the External Temple". Hurrah, I hope.

Ooh, there was no attachment on mine. Was it the same as the image I linked above? That one was titled findme[54].jpg

New topics are very welcome! Decisions about UF's path have been pushed downstream a bit thanks to bits of help some of us have tossed Spacebass. Keep an eye on that thread for updates, but feel free to play on here.

kaii fein il come back and play - i heard the forum wasnt going so well (donated and recurring donated) and i remember my time here fondly so i want to come back and show all my love and support.

I know you all missed me! (well most of you)

my earliest memory? Death.

anyone tried extracting another email from the image? Just a guess - its asking us to find them. Im guessing they probably dont need us to show up at the door so theres probably an email hidden in that image somewhere.

will have a closer look at it in the morning. I mostly swung in to help out the forums.

I have returned .....
