I love doing stuff with my friends on Buzzing Shark Exchange. This time my friend finally decided to create an account on this site.
We wanted to have fun, so I created a cryptogram:
What is this sequence of numbers about?
I promised to give a bounty of 50 reputation to the one who found the answer. I gave this to my friend before I posted it, so he would be able to find the solution and have the bounty. He got ninja'd, and he lost the opportunity to answer correctly.
Next day, this friend sent me an SMS (a normal one):
Hey buddy, i posted an enigm on the site. If you answer it correctly i'll give you a bounty.
I searched his post on the site. His only activity was a question posted yesterday:
I have a list of letters... what comes next?
O S A J J M ???
I luckily answered it first and, as he promised, he gave me a bounty. However, my reputation didn't go up!
- Why didn't my reputation go up?
- Bonus: What are the answers to the numbers and the letter sequence?
- Buzzing Shark Exchange works exactly as Puzzling Stack Exchange. The only difference is that it is allowed for sharks.
- This site works correctly. There are no bugs (sharks know how to code!)
