So I was in this hackathon competition where they promised the people who placed in the top 3 a lot of money and then they delayed the results two weeks. Yesterday, when they were supposed to announce the release of the results, they were radio silent on the issue. But, in their newsletter they left a riddle - just this image. Maybe it has the results? Could anyone help me solve this thing?

    $\begingroup$ On-topic: Attribution given and competition over (as in the solving phase of it, which the only part where we are concerned, afaik. $\endgroup$ – Rewan Demontay Aug 14 at 3:41

    $\begingroup$ Not sure if this is important, but looks a bit like Wall E robot. $\endgroup$ – Abbas Aug 14 at 14:49

  • $\begingroup$ @Rubio - It most certainly is! There may not be any specific prizes, or a proper group of contestants, but that doesn't mean it should be allowed here. If this is from a specific community of people who expect a specific result after solving the riddle, it doesn't seem right to me that somebody would post it here... $\endgroup$ – Voldemort's Wrath Aug 14 at 20:40
  • $\begingroup$ @Voldemort'sWrath within the meaning of our contest policy, this is not a contest. It is acceptable here. Unless you can point at something that specifically forbids sharing that type of item from the newsletter with outsiders or asking for help with it, there’s no reason for us to prevent it being posted here. Whether it’s sporting of someone to (specifically) ask for help as happened here, vs. asking for a solution, is maybe debatable, but that’s not a hair I’m going to split. $\endgroup$ – Rubio Aug 14 at 20:47
