Wait... What the hell is going on in this thread? Is it some kind of mystery or game? I'M CONFUSED.
The commander of ONI SECTION 3 Op36516 has released obfuscated information regarding a current operation and he needs the help of the entire section 3 team to help decipher the documents which usually leads operatives to tasty cookies hopefully not the stale ones.
Yes it's a game part of the re-emerging continuation of a halo arg (alternate reality game) that began before the release of halo 4. If you have coding and decoding skills or are interested in learning stick around and help the ops. New ops are always welcome.

Thanks for clearing that up for me :)
Unfortunately, I don't have coding or decoding skills, so I guess I'll just stick around and see how this... interesting activity develops. Good luck Section 3 Ops.
Wouldn't that just make you sick and puke in your helmet?
Great work so far, OPs!

A new package has arrived, but it may require some AI help, maybe quite a bit. Do be careful, OPs.

Can a Sec 3 Op please write up a full tutorial telling us minions how you solved a clue. I.e.

1. Reversed the text using http://website.com
2. Decoded the result twice from X to Y to Z
3. Next step using program/software

If you do this we may be able to help more.

Also tell us what to look out for on the forums, twitter etc.

Thanks

We can, it just takes time to get this all done. Solutions will be provided in full at some point

Yeah that's what I mean but also which tool you use to do the work (or the thinking required).
Noticed we have other posts in the ama666e73724e76 thread

Possibly half of the Key-Phrase as it's 6 chars in length but I cant see where to split this yet or what to do with the 2
Adding this from chat earlier. Looks like something was missed

I posted about the bio for Sec3OP36516 and also the thread that stckr thought was spam? I see Devoltar has worked on ama666e73724e76 new posts
I noticed small strings of letters in the end of the earlier solutions as a signature before the pipes. Is that being tracked?

I think those decoded to EOF

I saw that one and one other UkJ(something) it might be crumbs?

Edit: looks like it's (edit 2 (currently)) always EOF upon review?
Update 003 may prove useful.
