I don't *think* it's a case of one word per block of 9 letters, I've looked through every possibility (for the first block), and nothing jumps out at me a being a word, then again, the answer might not be a word, so we need some way to tell when we've found the answer we're looking for

I'm thinking along the lines of each box being assigned a number, I would assume standardly i.e. Left-> Right ,then top to bottom.

I'm playing with valueing each letter such that the average of each box is the number stated, then say the center value for each box could be the key.

I dunno.. don't have much time, but I may give it a go later

I'm chasing an idea but I want to solve the next stage before I give away a possible method for solving this.

If I'm on the right track, the next word is nine letters long.

Seriously cant figure out the second puzzle, but im pretty sure the arrows on the boxes will play a part in solving the puzzle.

J B P R N I D M

B A E I C F A F B

R J 0 R 0 S J S R

R I R A U G

M Y R Y S 0 N S I R R Y A B J P 0 R S J 0

Right heres an idea... the numbers are 9 digits right, and it tells you if your stuck look for things with the tag Vanishing Point.. well you "Tag" things on Flickr and its albums are in a 9 digit format in the URL...

Anyone with me on this ?

So far I have worked out:

jyybjdccdy

yybjdccdy

jyybjdccdc

yybjdccdc

jyybjdccim

yybjdccim

jyybjuuuua

yybjuuuua

jyybjuuuur

yybjuuuur

and

ruujbdmmdj

uujbdmmdj

ruujbdmmdc

uujbdmmdc

None of these are correct, so I'll keep trying. :(

My idea is that the nine digit number at the bottom right refers to the number of steps to take across the grid (including the step you're on), following in the direction of the arrows on the square you leave from. Take the letter of each square you land on, and I think you'll get the next code.

I don't think the mini-grids of nine squares are relevant at all.

Any help? Tallied the letters up, then under each number I put which letters have that many in the puzzle...?

(Edited for correctness (d's counted wrong))

lol if you mean the first page type in wh0isl0ki into the box and click submit.

the thing is if this puzzle is anything like the first one we arent going to be able to do without some random person posting how too, i assume it isnt that hard.

That's what I'm thinking, there's seemingly no order to the box patterns though
