Step 8 refers to going back to their blog:


first picture:

http://dl.dropbox.com/u/211024/Hack%20week%20photos/DSC_0066.jpg (my guess of what step 9 is)

so change step 8's url from p to b:


Yeah after 30 or so tries I'm ready to throw my monitor across the room.....anyone have steps?

Anyone use mediafire.com? Check it out. I like it.

wordoku answer:


hopefully they don't change the letters for everyone...

not sure where step 12 is, they spelled out Dropbox (D, then r then o then...):
Step 13https://www.dropbox.com/dropquest2011/x

can't get to step 11, get error(404)...I completed the suduko on step 10 (I guess).

any hints on how to solve the slider?

The slider is tough but you just have to solve it like a normal slider puzzle, not really any secret to it.

Ended 5507th WOOT!

Walkthrough can be found here:


EDIT: Don't skip any step, or you won't get any extra space, and maybe a 404 error.

All this for 1 gig?

Heck, I got an extra 250 meg. I'm done. This is too much work.

Nobody said you had to do it. I think it's pretty fun and nice to see a company do something like this.

Also, the top people who finished fastest got bigger space bonuses.

You placed #5837 with a time of 01:48:33

Doesn't take much effort and time at all with the help from errornous. Thanks for posting! Free 1Gb! Yipee!

Congrats on finding step 14 of Dropquest! This thread holds some special meaning to us at the team, because it showcases how great (and poetically talented) our community is. If possible, I'd like to feature more stuff like this in the future too

All of us here at Dropbox are really thankful for the forums because you guys seem to take care of yourselves awfully well, not to mention it's probably the friendliest forum I've come across on the internet. So thanks! You guys are awesome!

Anyway, here's your next hint, in haiku form!
