Uh... read this thread and count? The point is you can't skip any.

(SPOILER) Oh, and the link lead me to the error page, even though that was updated in February.

(SPOILER) Oh, I didn't. Just counted, and now I'm right. Led me to error, but now hangman....
EDIT: (SPOILER) Solved hangman, but don't know where to put the clue....
EDIT 2: (SPOILER) Might have to do with Pokerus? ....

(SPOILER) How'd you get to hangman?
EDIT: Never mind.
EDIT2: (SPOILER) TCOD doesn't have a page with the word "Pokerus", unless you count the cheat page, which hasn't been updated recently.
EDIT3:(SPOILER) The hangman can be done whenever, as far as I can tell.

(SPOILER) Went back to zodiac, and Magikarp was there again...
EDIT: (SPOILER) No, but the hangman had the "special" clue.

(SPOILER) I think the Magikarp images being back means we completed something. Magikarp is still missing from the mascots page for me, though.

(SPOILER) Hmm...I suppose the clue has to do with Deoxys or the pokerus, so I'll look wherever those are found.

Okay, three things you should NOT be relying on too much:

- When pages were updated. The last modified date normally tells you the age of the text of the page, but there could be included files, underlying scripts, etc. that were updated later that you can't see. Oh, and the Conspiracy Theories page is not relevant; I just forgot to include in the update that I added one (about Lance).
- The clues all being alike. If there is a clue in a source code comment, it's a good idea to make a habit of checking the source, but there are a million other ways to give clues and a million ways for the clues to be employed to achieve progress; if you don't find a source code comment, don't dismiss the page as irrelevant. If you're very definitely directed somewhere by the game, there is definitely something relevant there.
- When a clue disappears (reverts back to how it would be if you were not playing the game). The way this works is that you have a cookie that keeps track of your progress, and each clue only appears when you're at the right stage in the game. The progress cookie is not always updated after you find a clue (some steps in the game can technically be skipped if you don't need their clues to figure out where you're ultimately supposed to end up), but when it is, all clues that are not specifically made to appear when the cookie is set to this will go back to normal. Previous clues disappearing is not a sign that something plotwise has been accomplished; right now you are still in the "hints of a plot" stage.

Well, I think that's one of those "redundant" clues Butterfree may have posted. Maybe if we took a closer look on (SPOILER) that error page, we might be able to find something. Who knows, it might be a fake error page that sends us somewhere else, but I'm not too confident about that theory since I can't find anything in the source code. However, if a link led us to that page, maybe a link will lead us out of the page...

P.S: Magikarp is still missing for me...

(SPOILER) Yeah, I wonder what to do with the error page as well, and I don't wanna try sending anything in case it's wrong and REALLY sends an error report. :D; And the hangman clue, hmm...

I'm confused. I found the Deoxys clue in the EVs page, Magikarp is still on the mascots page, there's no hangman clue for me, and the main page has reverted back to normal. No idea what to do now.

If I'm correct, other clues only appear if you do another clue, so I'm hoping that the (SPOILER) Truth of RSE page will have a clue on it eventually - it mentions (SPOILER) the 100 space launch and Deoxys myth.

Hmmm.... About the hangman clue... (SPOILER) I think it might have something to do with Pokerus, but I can't figure out where in the site does it mention Pokerus...

(SPOILER) Same here. I can't find anything, so I guess sending an error report would be the best thing to do, clue wise. But I don't think Butterfree is going to be happy to get spammed with error reports of people trying to play M:tG. What to do, what to do...

(SPOILER) What mention of Magikarp is on every page today? (the 13th) That should help with the revenge clue.
Edit: The hangman clue is raping me in the ear.

I don't mind if I get a bunch of error reports while you're trying to figure this out. Just go ahead.

(SPOILER) Well, the page mentions Deoxys right? And Deoxys was planning revenge. And Butterfree made up a whole history of something about Deoxys's revenge and legendaries... Where could that be?

I'm pretty sure that's how the two clues connect.

Already been there, there seems to be a weird story about magikarps there but I'm not sure if
1) It's there anyway
2) It helps at all
3) Even if it does, I fail at this :(

EDIT: Gotten past that bit now.
