There's a little surprise somewhere on this site...

http://easter_egg_hunt.andrewfaraday.com/

Where is it?
What is it?


Addendum (full disclosure):

  • The link is to a working application running on my personal web domain.
  • There is no advertising or other revenue generation in that area of the site.
  • I'm not collecting analytics data on site views, but it does inherently collect data on games (namely, when the game was played and how many guesses it took).

    $\begingroup$ I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because this is an off-site “hunt” directing users to what seems to be the OP’s site (making this self promotion). Puzzles should be self contained, not rely on offsite resources that could vanish at any time. $\endgroup$ – Rubio Apr 4 '18 at 9:28
  • $\begingroup$ @Rubio There is no end of off-site resources used in these puzzles, they're just usually a lot more complex. $\endgroup$ – AJFaraday Apr 4 '18 at 9:29

    $\begingroup$ AJ - I would delete that last comment, it is tough enough being a moderator and having gone to the trouble of writing a long answer about this issue it we are going over ground that has been covered before.... I really like your puzzle AJ, but I can't see a way around the SE policies on this - so I think @Rubio is just trying to keep things right on this site. Your puzzle looks fine, but the next person who has a link might be exposing us all to something nasty. I feel bad about it because you have created a good fun puzzle. $\endgroup$ – tom Apr 4 '18 at 9:54

    $\begingroup$ AJFaraday, my followup comment here was a courtesy to you to point out where on local Meta we’ve already discussed these types of things before. I am on mobile and just finding and linking to those posts was tedious enough. I don’t think my attempt to extend you that courtesy warrants your snark, but it hopefully provides you and others some context for why this post needs to be closed. $\endgroup$ – Rubio Apr 4 '18 at 10:00
