    This puzzle has nothing to do with linking dots on Chester's face. At all. Everyone should stop thinking visually about this puzzle. It's all in the numbers, nothing else.

    We should clarify that the only reason the site crashed is because we were encountering traffic at least twice (if not three times) as heavy as what a normal server can hold. Cloudflare has done an EXCELLENT job of negating crashes from happening (Over 4 thousand posts, and 1,200+ users online) but after being pushed to it's maximum, a site can only take so long before it cracks. Would've happened eventually no matter what.

    Thanks for being so understanding guys. To have jumped a thousand posts in a day is nothing short of remarkable.

    One question Derek, how the hell did the site handle more than four thousand users?

    It only handled it because it was mike linking to an attachment which means a lot of those "users" were guests viewing one single image and not refreshing the forums constantly and posting. With this, we had about 1,500 users online and over 300-400 of them were making posts and refreshing the site every 10 seconds. You refresh any site that often with that many people and it'll get destroyed. It's how some DDOS attacks are done.

    I guess we'll just need another hint. I can't figure out anything else to do with that stl22 did, or anything I could do differently. can anyone else?

    hey, since LPA crashed you guys can continue discussion on LPL if you want (so we can get stuff done, and not be hindered by the crash)

    When you play around with the url of the site and put something after the burnitdown.linkinpark.com/(something here) it says: "Cannot GET /(whatever you wrote in the url)" so maybe whatever we get from these numbers we put it there? That should "GET" us something, right?
