  • With five I'm not from bots.
  • With four I connect the dots.
  • With three I seep into notes.
  • With two I don't want jokes.
  • With one I have three eyes.

The line above is where the answer lies.

Hint:

With one I have three open eyes.

    $\begingroup$ It's a riddle, my fingers are sealed. $\endgroup$ – risky mysteries Sep 1 at 22:49
  • $\begingroup$ @riskymysteries I think what would help a lot is a hint for the "With five I'm not from bots" part. $\endgroup$ – mjjf Sep 15 at 22:03
  • $\begingroup$ @riskymysteries Oh, I see you accepted an answer now. I liked this puzzle, but the question for the first bullet could be better - rot13(Obgf (ebobgf) pregnvayl pna oyvax vs qrfvtarq gb - nxn n uhznabvq ebobg be bar jvgu oyvaxvat yvtugf). The rhyming is nice, but not if it works against making the puzzle as clear as it could be. $\endgroup$ – mjjf Sep 15 at 22:17

As according to above answers, i just observe the fifth

With five I'm not from bots.

Blink - bots don't blink (TCooper)

With four I connect the dots.

Link - connects things (TCooper)

With three I seep into notes.

Ink - it does that seeping thing (TCooper)

With two I don't want jokes.

nk(No Kidding) (mjjf)

With one I have three eyes.

Last k, also known as symbol for thousand 1000, which shows up like three open eyes

The line above is where the answer lies.

The line above is "With one I have three eyes.". Eyes gives the hit of the answer blink.

Partial Answer (I think)

With five I'm not from bots.

Blink - bots don't blink

With four I connect the dots.

Link - connects things

With three I seep into notes.

Ink - it does that seeping thing

With two I don't want jokes.

maybe in, like inside jokes, but not sure why you don't want them, or if you're in on the joke it's not being played on you?

With one I have three eyes.

i? idk... this and two are why I put partial, but I think the first 3 fit too well not to post for someone else

Giving this another shot based on the hint "No one's lying". There are two possible meanings for this:

  • There is no lie (more likely)
  • It's not the last line that is lying, it is the first line. I don't think this makes sense with the riddle.

With five I'm not from bots.

links - maybe this has to do with robots.txt files in websites?; 5 letters

With four I connect the dots.

link - links two dots; 4 letters

With three I seep into notes.

ink - when used to write on paper, ink literally seeps into the page; 3 letters

With two I don't want jokes.

nk - No Kidding (abbreviation); 2 letters

With one I have three eyes.

Maybe instead of "i"s, this is referring to a third eye. However I can't think of a single letter that would give this meaning.

The other option is what I had originally thought - the answer has to ensure that there are only three "i"s in the other 4 answers (or be a lie). The only narrowing I can do is that it isn't "i" in that case (if my other answers are right).

The line above is where the answer lies.

the answer to the line directly above contains the answer to the riddle

The answer is:

No idea :)

Hmm… I'm going to combine the two answers from mjjf and TCooper(and add my answer).

the word is

blink

link

for 4,

ink

for 3,

nk

for 2, and

a letter with three holes(eyes)

for 1.
