But how is that 

Stephen Smith:
an in-joke that people familiar with the forums should be able spot as incongruous and then discover what it really is/means.

? Huh?

I was just joking with the other Richard. I had not read his earlier post, which would have eliminated that as a possibility for me. It is kind of funny that Stephen lists running and target practice... Even though I understood when Richard wrote that it must be wrong - I could not pass up the pun. So shoot me. Wink

I am having a problem not believing this is the Easter egg:

Click on anybody else's avatar and you just get their post count with their picture. This one says "- 1 years old" in addition to the post count. Why?

Matthew, click on your name and your age shows up.... where did that information come from?? Probably something you entered on your profile. Mr Young probably entered a date other than his birthdate.

Observation: initial reply was 2 months ago => http://community.logos.com/forums/p/31849/241679.aspx#241679 (bit before Forum Week).

Edit: seems bit odd for Logos Public Relations to reply with non-Logos app list yesterday => http://community.logos.com/forums/p/34673/260678.aspx#260678

Likewise noticed and appreciated Stephen's reply => http://community.logos.com/forums/p/34463/258325.aspx#258325

I agree with you completely, Matthew! Big Smile

I'm still waiting on the gift card! But they can just credit my account...Angel

While I'm here...am I the only one irked by the fact that Stephen's recent posts are not listed on his page. It makes finding the posts related to this hunt absurdly difficult and random to work through.

This is a "Forum Week" is a hidden forum, so although our post counts go up if you click on anyone who posts here (including yourself) you will not see their posts.  I did my own to try to get back to a post from the previous day...and it wasn't there!

Yes it does, but Richard Wardman posted that immediately and Stephen posted again right after him http://community.logos.com/forums/p/34673/260715.aspx#260715  and that post was outside "Forum Week"

Stephen Smith:

Yes, Todd, the fact that I left #5 out was a hint...because the easter egg is in one of my posts. I keyed in on that fact that people are looking all over the place, from source code, to employee rosters, to the product checkout process at logos.com!

And therefore, "focus!" As in, "this is for forum week. look in forum week. and what's more, look in my posts." Wink I'm not that cryptic. But I really can't give any more hints.

Stephen, I think I found it. It's in your Round 2 post. You said this (note the word OUT and FOCUS):

"*Personal note: If you haven't seen the video about the High Definition New Testament, you definitely should check it out! I personally think a resource like this is incredibly helpful in understanding the New Testament writers' flow of thought and intentions for writing. Can there be anything more worthwhile in studying the Word than trying to understand the inspired authors' intent? Few resources focus on the discourse grammar level of Bible study, and only one (that I've seen) makes it so accessible/understandable for the average person. Take a look!

Hence, the link is: http://www.logos.com/media/flash/hdnt/HDNT-Revised.html?utm_source=forums&utm_medium=post&utm_content=textlink&utm_campaign=live_forum_week_hdnt

Am I right? :) Please tell me I am right....Yeahhhhh!!!!

David, I posted that link last night and still haven't gotten a response as to whether or not it was the Easter egg.  However, I don't think Stephen has been on the forum since then.

It's worth noting what Stephen said earlier in this thread...

Stephen Smith:
No hidden meaning. No hidden message. Just an in-joke that people familiar with the forums should be able spot as incongruous and then discover what it really is/means.

I don't think we're looking for the word 'focus' or anything related.  It sounds like something that stands out as being odd and something that regular 'Forumites' would spot.

But where to start!?  There's no way of tracking all his posts!

All right I think I have it.  It was like I couldn't see the forest for the trees.
Forum guidelines state:
  1. Please keep your discussions focused on Logos Bible Software: our software, products, websites, company, tools, etc.

Then Steven starts a thread called "Off Topic".... how does that relate to LOGOS??? It is definitely outside the guidelines!!

 Hiding in plain view.

So the Easter egg is Stephen Post http://community.logos.com/forums/p/34644/259897.aspx#259897  where he says

"So, here's the plan: post anything you want right in this thread....it doesn't matter how off-topic or, for the benefit of certain unnamed pup...er...people, useless the comment is."

 

Hopefully I can win again...since this isn't the Hide n Seek thread and there are no rules posted for winning this oneBig Smile

I sure hope not, since I actually started writing a "funny" post just after he posted that, quoting him the Guidelines and so on, but then I deleted it instead of posting it, figuring it wasn't funny at all, just stupid. He's a Logos employee; he's got the right to "break" the Guidelines.

And if it's that kind of incongruous we're looking for, I've got something worse: he forbade us to reveal the details of the hidden sale, and then he himself revealed that it included a wildcard. How's that for breaking rules?! I actually remarked on it a day or two ago. But I doubt it's either of these.

Yep, me too...that was before he made it known there was an "Easter egg" and he expected us to find it!  I actually waited a while before posting it.

As for his leaking the "wildcard" he has the right to do that ... and I'm pretty sure he did  it as a teaser to get more folks to post to the Meet & Greet thread...smart marketing teaser I might add.

I'm glad he created the "Off Topic" thread that allows us to "legally" have fun ignoring the guidelines....Big Smile
