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

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: fhinkel@adelphia.net
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

Hey guys. In case you haven't noticed I'm hosting a puzzle in the classic teasers section and I was wondering how I post something in blue.

Since the left side of the brain controls the right side of the body (and vice versa), we now know that only left-handed people are truly in their right minds.

Alex, just put font color=blue in between angle brackets, which are < and > in front of the text that you want to appear in blue. At the end of the text, put /font in between angle brackets.

Hi bobby, welcome to MN!

Just go to the Classic Teasers and join anyone of them. Check the most recent recap and read the questions and answers from there. Then you can jump in with your own questions yes/no. You're allowed to ask 4 at the time. Wait for the host to come answer them and you can ask 4 more. And then of course you have to figure out the story ;o) Have fun!

Hey everybody! I'm new to this area, so I wanted to make sure I understood how everything worked. In classic teasers, the answers can be guessed at in the discussion, but in the rest you're supposed to e-mail your solutions? I wasn't sure, because I couldn't find it posted anywhere.

If all I wanted was attention, I'd be naked.

That's correct, in the various logic puzzles,and such, e-mail the host of the puzzle,so that the puzzle will remain a mystery.

In classic teasers, the point of the puzzle is for all the MNers to figure out what heppened.. unless the opener sounds like a story you have heard/read about before, you are free to ask yes/no question to help solve the story/mystery. If you think you know the answer without having to ask yes/no questions, it's always best to email the host.. generally these puzzles last anywhere from 50 posts to about 150 post.
