I'm a noob, plz help me quick!

I'm a programmer and I have a deadline to finish a difficult project, I need your help now.

I would ask it on Stackoverflow, but it's probably gonna get closed, so I'm reaching out on this SE.

• Lol, I very nearly voted to close as off-topic. – gnovice Apr 3 '18 at 15:53
• You are definitely a noob, it must be enter image description here, not edit! – nicael Apr 3 '18 at 20:27
• @nicael nice to meet you too, it was done so intentionally. – WELZ Apr 3 '18 at 20:28
• (it wasn't an insult rather than a joke based on the question title, but I see your point now :) – nicael Apr 3 '18 at 20:29
• You're quick to reply though! – nicael Apr 3 '18 at 20:29

So, you want me to...

gimme moar of teh codez?

I vote to close as "unclear what you're asking". ;)

The solution:

Editing the question shows the image that is incorrectly linked is at https://i.stack.imgur.com/xf15u.png, which contains:

Doing a ROT13 on this gives a new image link https://i.stack.imgur.com/icgB6.png, which contains:

Replacing the file name gives the new link https://i.stack.imgur.com/Cli7O.png, which contains:

And you can sorta see a ghostly image in the white. Adjusting the contrast (I actually just did imshow(all(imread('Cli7O.png') == 255, 3)) in MATLAB), we get:

And another ROT13 of this gives gimme moar of teh codez.

• that was quicker then I thought :D, awaiting explanation before I accept. – WELZ Apr 3 '18 at 15:46
• If only you wrote the explanation before posting the answer... Ah well, it was a fun treasure hunt. – PL457 Apr 3 '18 at 15:46
• @WELZ since you're asking on this site, it looks like your project is screwed – Quintec Apr 3 '18 at 16:21
• I just tilted my screen. – wizzwizz4 Apr 4 '18 at 14:33
• @wizzwizz4: That's not how ROT13 works. ;) – gnovice Apr 4 '18 at 14:43

Ok solved by gnovice, but I am guessing the hint is

seau de peinture - paint bucket in french... which made me start searching through the images of the post n- simple substitution 1-a, 2-b, etc. .... this was for the white image to reveal the message....

• Yep, what @gnovice mentioned for the final part could've been done with this as well (for those who don't have "that" tool he used) – WELZ Apr 3 '18 at 15:58
