Looks like Blake may have got somewhere. The response header is now:

X-Blake: much_respect

Blake, did you get it?

By the way, we ask everyone here who wants to help, to post whatever song titles or words in album names:
  • are 8 letters at most. (So, no "Erotomania")
  • don't start with "A", "C" or "F". (So, no "Awake", "Chosen" or "Forsaken"

We're trying to decrypt a text, and the keyword must have those features. (We may discard other first letters later, but that's all we have for now.)

So, for instance "Home" could be a candidate. It doesn't work, though, so we need others. One of them might be correct.

Thanks!

EDIT: No "B" as first letter either!

I added a form for people to submit input/outputs, but I'm not sure how well it will help to have random submissions. The discussion about the submissions seems more important.

It was on https://37311319.com/, when you submitted the form, the headers on 1.php had that X-Blake header on the response. It's now back to X-Dream-Theater now. I thought you had maybe solved it...  :)

HTML/CSS class seems to be relevant, so all of our submissions might be useless without this information.  :-\

What do all these hokey characters mean?  I don't even understand what I'm seeing so as to interpret how the characters are changing.  Makes no sense at all to me.

We do have a couple where the class is 1. There seems to be a pattern in the placement, but it's not clear what that means.

The 1st letter of whatever you input changes every character in the output starting from the 1st. If you input a 2nd letter, it changes every character in the output starting from the 2nd, and so on.

Some of the guys at the Discord are working on some html aspect of the characters. Another way of working through this would be to see what 1st letters in the password give a suitable 1st letter in the output. (That's why I'm thinking "A", "B", "C" and "F" are not appropriate) Then, which 2nd letter gives a suitable pair of 1st/2nd letters in the output, and so on.

Previous passwords have been DT songs, so this new one could be as well.

Ok guys, I've figured out something reallyyyyy cool:

If we're assuming that the '1' class means "correct letter", so we've got this so far (It's partial):

H e ' s _ a _ M o _ d a _    _ o r _ i n _    _ u n _ t i _     _ i s _ _ r _ e _ _ _ _ _ m _ t _ _ _ _ _ o _ t _ _ _ _ _ o _ t _ _ _ _ _ i


Notice anything? :)

The URL is in Jacobi's profile.

For the password, we tried POWER randomly and this is how we found the class=1 feature. Then we tried words similar to POWER, and others, and landed on OWNER, which starts with O and started with class=1 for the first letter (H). From there, we found OA. Then someone somehow figured out the rest. Not sure how. Just an educated guess I believe, based on the source of the quote which were pretty sure of by that point.

So, the new letter we just got is an “R”, which means the “Hidden by Design” guess is most likely incorrect  :-[

Probably not that important right now, but:
  • The picture for puzzle #1 goes next to the one from puzzle #4.
  • The one from puzzle #3 goes next to the one from puzzle #2. (In that order)
  • The second pair of pictures shows the ceiling and cymbals, so that probably goes right at the top in the bigger picture*. It certainly goes to the left of the first pair, and one or 2 lines above it.
  • The letters we have so far are 'D', 'R', 'Y' and 'S'. Maybe the letters for the 15 (or 16) pictures form the band's name and album title? (That would mean a very short title, including 'Y' and 'S'. Like 'Yes'!)
What do you guys reckon?





* Could that be relevant to the last puzzle/password? It certainly has 16 letters.
