Ok, it is very rare that I ask for feedback, but I really dislike 'search-on-the-site' challenges. I included this one however because I felt it was time for such a challenge.

There are a few solvers already and I'm sure many more to come, so I ask those who have solved:
What is your opinion on this one?

No spoilers please Smiley


Thanks,
sabre

Well, at least it gives some insight. I saw it, then thought: "How easy can it be?" and then happened to go wrong... I was about to give it up for the moment and then read the challenge text thoroughly. All of the sudden I knew what to do and felt lucky about this fact.

At least I know that the other investigation missions were not about searching the site. Not that this information gives me any clue what to do instead, but at least I have another dead end locked...

I tried to do this the wrong way a couple of times and then stumbled upon what I wanted by looking for something else...  Roll Eyes 

Enough information definately given in the text though and it's good to get people to look around a little to find all the features of the site.

This is certainly too easy 'cause I accessed it before...lol.
Add a red herring and make the challenge more interesting?

Not every challenge has to be the hardest I can make it.
For those who have seen this before then yes it is easy.
For those who haven't then it is considerably harder.

I feel the challenge is fine as-is, but thanks for your input

One of my ideas results in "Nice try..." text. Is the correct approach something similar or something completely different?

Not sure what you're trying, but it should be pretty obvious that you have the correct solution when you find it.
