Help Using Teasers
Hi all, and welcome to Teasers by Members, a feature of

Here's the deal:
Each Teaser starts with the setup - a short description of the teaser. Members then attempt to solve the teaser by posting yes or no questions for the Teaser Master to answer until the solution is arrived at. If you have already heard the Teaser, please do not give away the solution.

 • PLEASE read all the questions from the beginning of a Teaser before posting your own. Try not to post the same question twice.
 • Please post no more than 4 total questions between receiving answers from the Teaser Master.
 • Try to refrain from any unnecessary topics or non-teaser related discussions in the Teaser Section.
 • Please do not use any fonts (color, face, size) besides the default unless you are the Teaser Master.
 • Solved Teasers will be marked and moved to "Teasers with Solutions" and will be deleted after a short time.
 • PLEASE, if you've heard a Teaser before, or think you know the answer at the very beginning of a Teaser, email the Teaser Master by clicking on their name at the top of the Teaser.

How to become a Teaser Master:
To have your own Teaser posted, you must first be a registered user of the MysteryNet Community. In order to register, just click the "Register" button at the bottom of your screen.
Send your teaser, title, solution, and MysteryNet "NAME" to:
As soon as we're able, we'll post your Teaser in the Teasers by Members folder-- but please stick around to answer the questions and interact with everyone!

 • Please do not send in Teasers as attachments in emails as they will be automatically denied. Instead, copy and paste them into the body of the email.
 • Please send only one teaser per email. You can submit several but they should be in separate emails.
 • If you are sending a teaser with a co-host, please include their email address also.

Thanks, and enjoy the Teasers

Don't sweat the petty things, and don't pet the sweaty things!

I dunno if I'm supposed to post here, but I have a stupid question. I'm pretty sure that I can change the little sentence thingy under my name, but I don't know how. Could you please make this more obvious to me, since I'm not quite as brilliant as you? Thanks alot!

Lana =D

...redefining Normal, one day at a time.

Lana -

It's okay - everybody's gotta feel idiotic at some point in their life. It's good for you :o)

Just hit your 'Preferences' button, and change the second line of information.

CM :o)

Thank you! I figured it out! Everything makes so much more sense now!!! (And I got to be the first one here!)

Dear Sunshine Girl,

I think this will eliminate some problems, but you will be missing the fun of solving the teasers once you know the solution.

BTW was your life interfering with your hosting or your hosting interfering with your life?

emailing u a teaser...

Hello -

I'd like to add a new teaser to the list of unsolved but can't figure out how. I'm registered, but I can't find that darn "Add Discussion" button.

Help? Please?

If Only The Wizard Could Give Me A Brain

Dear Sunshine Girl,
Why not have us send you two emails?
One with the question and one with the answer.
We could title them solution to... and then you dont have
to look at them, but you would have the answers to them
just in case. What do you think?
P.S. I sent you a riddle and not the answer. Do you want
the answer too before it posts?
Email me ok?

Never knock on Death's door; ring the doorbell and run (he hates that ;)

You have to email new teasers to Sunshine Girl ;)

...redefining Normal, one day at a time.

*sigh....* ??????

Lupin -
You're right, and that was my concern, but thanks to Celest's brilliant idea, maybe it will not be so. Got your teaser.

Life or hosting interfering? Hmm - prob'ly both. Of course, if this were an actual paying job, it'd be a different story (hint hint, nudge nudge, wink wink - any Newfront people watching? :o)

Celest -
Brilliant idea :o)

Weblynx -


CM :o)

LaurieB - 04:36pm Jul 27, 1998 PST(#10 of 322)

I'm dead serious, do I add a teaser? I did it once before but can't remember how.

_Sunshine_ - 05:14pm Jul 27, 1998 PST(#11 of 322)
...redefining Normal, one day at a time.

Laurie - See above :o)

That's what this whole folder is about! Just read the intro.

CM :o)

A Freak among freaks


Instead of putting

Teaser Master: Joe Blow

try putting

Teaser Master: <a href=">Joe Blow</a>

To solve the problem Lupin pointed out.
