Monday at 5 pst I'll announce who won. Then they'll have until Tuesday at 11:59 pm to vote for a player to nominate (maybe a few names, depending on how many voters we have). The top two vote getters will be nominated announced Wednesday morning.
Everyone gets to vote on elimination, regardless of if they solve the puzzle.
So, I assume you got your answer in right after the challenge was issued?
No. I didn't see the challenge until it had been up for a couple of hours.
I also spent about 10 minutes after I solved it trying to figure out if there was a faster way to solve it before I sent it in.
Would you like a gold star?
I spent almost 2 hours today trying to figure this out and I guess cryptograms are just not my thing. I mean what word could MQMSCFTOHR possibly be????? I looked up EVERY ten letter word!! When we get the answer I'll probably bang my head against a wall. If I had to solve this to save my life... I'd die.

This was tricky and barring a stupid typo I think i got it too. I don't want to tell you how long I spent on it since Amer only spent 2 seconds but it took me significantly longer and two big 'aha' moments.
Here's a good hint.....it helps if you have a teenager in the house to ask! Actually, he's not a teen anymore...he's 24...but a whiz on all things like this. However, I did give him a head start with a common word that was repeated a couple of times that I figured out, and was actually (surprise!) correct.
Okay, so there are six of us who now have the responsibility of throwing some names in the Commander's hat for possible elimination. Ideas? Opinions? Feedback?
Mike was criticized in week one for not seeking input from others for his nominations....don't want to repeat that. As Annie has said...and I believe most will agree...it's a shame to see active participants eliminated early in the game. I always enjoy the rants, infighting, threats, and insults that are tossed around by active players.
