You are perhaps missing the concept of the puzzle. It isn't too straight forward as it's round 5.
The title is a clue to the concept.

Of course, the last round is a little trickier!

PM me with your thought so far, as I don't want to give away too much on the public forum.

I found the date but bimbogami is telling me i'm forgetting something so i must be close.

've even found a the same paragraph bimbogami has used so how can the answer be different. you cant change the date after all. i am missing the point of the title obviously but really dont understand what is required of me. please help Sad Confused

If you have found the text, and the obvious answer based on that text is wrong, then maybe you need to check the rest of the text...

Still stuck here. I found the date, noticed some discrepancies and tabulated them. Can't make head nor tail of the result. There must be some other hint you can give (I tried looking closer but I'm a bit long-sighted).

Discrepancies you say, hmmmm, that sounds interesting.
Can you get anything from them, I wonder.

I'm sure if you examine the evidence your discrepancies will lead you to what you need to convert the obvious answer to the actual answer...

PM sent. - MorFF

I CANT DO IT!!!!!!!

I think your going to lose me on this one. I found the descrepancies of the dates and some text but I'm still coming up with a complete blank.

I don't even know what the question I'm supposed to be answering is, is it a date Question I don't know how much longer I can look at this withought screaming. Ahhhhh Confused

Only two to go after this, don't give up now!

The orange question marks in the text are what you are looking to replace as your answer.
PM me your date discrepancies and I'll check them for you.

Would you be willing to check mine? We have been playing around with them for a day now and haven't come up with what we need.
