WTHAIS - LINKS & TALK

Hi all,
I'm enjoying watching the people and places emerge in the WTHAIs and learning about them, especially the WhereTHAIs, since I love to travel, even if it's just via PC.

I'm creating this thread for general talk about the WTHAIs and also to post links whenever there's a hiccup and the official link doesn't correspond to what we've seen in the game. Also, if I have time, I'll keep track of all the winners for August and post a leaderboard at the end of the month.

OK, here are some links and explanation:

1. The Wikipedia page for the late British author Angela Carter doesn't show a photo for her, so here's a link to one. This image shows more than what we saw in the puzzle (more background), but this is definitely the portrait: http://image.guim.co.uk/Guardian/arts/gallery/2008/may/02/photography/GD7120684@Angela-CarterFrom-the-344.jpg

2. The Wikipedia page for Malacca doesn't show a photo of the very interesting Melaka Sultanate Palace. I couldn't find a photo anywhere that matched what we saw in the puzzle. But fear not, I took a screenshot of the WTHAI. Here's a link to that:
http://img187.imageshack.us/img187/4175/melakasultanatepalaceei0.jpg

A nice larger image of the palace can be seen here: http://www.panoguide.com/gallery/54/

3. The posted link for Mission San Jose (solved 29 July 08 by Larrybus) is OK, but it doesn't take you to what we saw in the puzzle. For that, go to the Wikipedia page here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mission_San_Jos%C3%A9

Scroll down and click on the chapel interior. That's what I saw as the completed puzzle. (As a side note, I visited this mission as a teenager while on a family vacation.)

And once again, congratulations to all the people who have solved these puzzles!

-- Geri

Thanks, Geri. After a WTHAI is solved, I always click on the link to read up a bit on the person or place. If the photo in the link doesn't match then I search until I can find it. (The Homer Simpson eyeball has to be the most unusual "who" so far!)

I'm glad you've started this thread. I'll be looking for updates.

This showed the same view of the Melaka Sultan's Palace, but the screen displays in a distorted way. When you google on "images" it shows up a little better.

Actually this is a better link for the view, but I don't think either one was the exact same one in the WTHAI photo (more background was included in that one)

Hi,
Thanks Pepper and Pennwoman! And thanks for posting those other links, Pepper!

In case it wasn't clear, this thread is for everybody! Although I have some super powers from being bitten by a mutant mosquito, I do need to sleep and rescue people from evil-doers, so I won't see all of the WTHAIs. So, if you find better links and other interesting tidbits about a WTHAI, please post 'em.

Also, I was thinking it would be cool and fun to create an online photo album of all the WTHAI puzzle pics for August. Anyone who wants to help with this by taking screenshots of the puzzles and/or hunting down links -- that would be great. Then we could talk and hopefully put together something nice as a little August retrospective.

OK, time for more info:

For Annabella Lwin (solved 31 July 08), unfortunately, the Wiki page doesn't show us what we saw in the puzzle. Here's what the WTHAI looked like after eight tiles had been exposed: http://img231.imageshack.us/img231/1032/whobowwowwowrk0.jpg
(And that's when Sbrownlee solved it! ) Anyway, here's a link to what appears to be the full image for what was used in the puzzle: http://www.imageyenation.com/emeyesi/images/Blog/July07/annabella_lwin2.jpg

I completely missed the "Luis" (Emilio Delgado) puzzle, so if anyone could post a link to what that puzzle photo looked like, that would be great! (The Wiki page has no photo.)

Also, I only saw a little bit of the Amy Sedaris WTHAI, but I know the Wiki page on her doesn't show what we saw. Is this the correct photo? http://images.worshiptheglitch.com/amy_sedaris_sexy.jpg

Thanks!

LOL, Geri, I think the Amy Sadaris photo (which was heavily cropped) was clothing optional. Didn't know if I should post that link.

When I checked earlier today and saw a couple of tiles removed (Luis), it looked like someone with a crazed look on his face. After I found out who it was, I spent a couple of minutes looking for the exact photo, but couldn't find it. I might give that one another go.

OK, if you have time, that would be terrific!

Boy, that "Rez" reservoir in Mississippi is stunningly beautiful. Oh, and apparently the Luxembourg Spuerkeess is a bank, which makes sense, given Luxembourg's economy, but that's one kind of structure that didn't occur to me as I was trying to solve. Very clever, editors! While trying to figure that one out, it looked to me like the building was in a town square (although the photo in the puzzle had been cropped so you couldn't see the square). So, I was looking at various squares in Europe. There was also something about the architecture that made me think of Denmark, but alas, I had the wrong country.

Anyway, congratulations to the latest solvers of the Who and the WhereTHAIs!

Thank you, thank you, thank you. It drives me crazy when I click on the "correct" answer and there is no photo.

Would one of you please show me that Homer Simpson puzzle? I keep reading that it was "great," but I never saw even a part of that one. It was solved and another puzzle was up before I checked in.

This is going to me my new favorite thread. Besides the lack of photos -- or links to sites with photos unrelated to the puzzle -- there are often bad links. The links do not work, for example, if there is a diacritical mark or punctuation in the title of the wiki page. I have sent many support tickets in on this issue, and at first, I got a "thanks, we'll make that correction" answer -- but lately I have gotten replies that were almost surly in tone. I'm glad to have a place to send such "corrections."

For example, the wiki link for the Jean Pierre Leaud puzzle did not work -- probably because of the accent mark over the e in his last name. The correct wiki entry for his name is at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jean-Pierre_L%C3%A9aud

The link that was given in the "correct answer" column (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jean-Pierre_L�aud ) went to a "Bad Title" message page.

Thanks again for thinking of posting this thread.

We are trying very hard to post the correct wiki link for these, but we copy and paste and they DO work when we check from the editor side. There is something inherently wrong in the way the system is set and only Justin can fix it. I'm afraid it is not very high on his to-do list, probably since we all agree that Sploofus players are bright enough to figure out how to go a step or two further and locate the correct info (just as you did)!

But I'm sorry that you didn't get a better answer in your ST. It's just that there is really nothing we the editors can do about it.

Oh yes, the Spuerkeess picture WAS on that wiki site but must have been removed, because I can't find where I got it from now either!

Thank you, Sploofizz.
We do all understand that there are still a few bugs in the system, and even when those are fixed, no system is perfect (as in the disappearing photo over which, of course, you had no control).

This will be a good place to cover this particular hole in what is otherwise a fun game.

I'm glad someone else thought the Rez picture was as beautiful as I did.
I coulnt make up my mind if it was real or painted.
I went through Henri Le Douanier Rousseau's paintings in case that was the artist...didnt find the rez but did find some new art!

Diane,

The Homer Simpson photo was an extremely cropped view of his eyeball!
Imagine the entire box filled with white with black curves at the four corners and a black dot right in the middle of the white - hence, the eyeball. I doubt (I could be wrong) that you'll find the cropped eyeball on a link. I imagine our devious editors took a Homer face shot and cropped the eyeball to fill the WTHAI box.

Barry,
I do the same thing when I'm searching for a "who" or "where." If I get off on the wrong track, or find an interesting topic (like the paintings you found), I spend some time exploring there. For example, an artist was the "who" this morning, but at first I thought it was a game show contestant. I spent about 30 minutes looking up game show contestants and found some very interesting information on famous people who have appeared on game shows.

Hi all,
Pepper, thanks for finding the link to the photo for "Luis" from Sesame Street!

Sploofizz wrote: "Oh yes, the Spuerkeess picture WAS on that wiki site but must have been removed, because I can't find where I got it from now either!"

Don't worry, Sploofizz, the official Sploofus link provided for the Luxembourg Spuerkeess is good. The photo of the bank is still there -- you just have to scroll down towards the bottom of the page (it's to the right of the entry on Culture).

Diane,
Pepper described what we saw in the Homer Simpson WhoTHAI puzzle quite well, but I'll see if I can reproduce it. If so, I'll put up a photo at Image Shack and provide a link.

Barry and Pepper,
I've done the same thing while hunting -- found a fascinating tangent. I was once convinced that an island depicted in a Where was among the Fijian islands. I didn't solve the puzzle but learned a lot about Fiji!

I'm happy to see that many of you are enjoying the thread! I look on it as a way we players can help each other and the editors. We can't do things like fix programming bugs, but we can track down links and photos.

The most recent "who" is Kaitlin Olson. The link takes you to the Wiki page that explains who she is.
The photo can be found on this link - scroll to the bottom, and it's the middle photo.

Thanks so much for posting the link to Kaitlin Olson, Pepper!

Now, as far as I can see, the Wiki page for The Great Zimbabwe National Monument doesn't show the exact picture we had for the WTHAI puzzle. What we saw was an aerial view of most of the site/ruins. Here's a link to a photo that looks like what we saw: http://www.wayfaring.info/wp-content/uploads/2007/07/great-ruins.jpg

Since Diane mentioned Jean-Pierre Léaud, and since that puzzle was quite a stumper with over 700 guesses, I think, and requiring a clue, here's a link to what we saw for that July WhoTHAI (scroll down to about the middle of the page to the photo of the guy smoking):
http://images.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://i4.tinypic.com/10cw2ok.jpg&imgrefurl=http://profile.myspace.com/index.cfm%3Ffuseaction%3Duser.viewprofile%26friendid%3D42237323&h=480&w=640&sz=38&hl=en&start=36&sig2=Tx1RI3cgUesiV0MD1N5Skw&um=1&tbnid=tRTEplJWZWZHgM:&tbnh=103&tbnw=137&ei=6RWVSOTMHYekeK_-tKAJ&prev=/images%3Fq%3DJean-Pierre%2BL%25C3%25A9aud%26start%3D18%26ndsp%3D18%26um%3D1%26hl%3Den%26sa%3DN

Finally, kudos to whichever editor came up with the idea to use Dr. Who for a WhoTHAI. Very clever and amusing!

Once again, a puzzle I never saw at all!
WHICH Dr. Who was pictured?
There have been 10 "official" doctors on the series -- and more than 20 actors have portrayed the doctor if you include stage, film and audio productions.

Hi Diane,
The official link for the Doctor Who WhoTHAI is good -- scroll down until you see the collage described as "The ten faces of the Doctor." Ken is correct in that the collage was cropped for the puzzle. Here's a link to what the actual completed puzzle looked like: http://img396.imageshack.us/img396/8947/6doctor

Thanks a million, Larry, for providing that link!

OK, now for some more links and chat:

1. The Dr. Michelle Callahan puzzle was a good stumper with over 500 guesses! Congratulations to Johnbtv! Anyway, the official link takes us to her homepage, which is a bit confusing, so here's a link to the photo that was the basis for the puzzle: http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/16281922/

2. Congratulations to Mindmonkey for solving the Noam Chomsky WhoTHAI! The Wikipedia page has lots of fascinating info on him, but not the exact photo that was used for the puzzle. For that, here's a link: http://wvs.topleftpixel.com/04/11/22/

3. Congratulations to Nelly for tracking down the Rio Antirio Bridge in Greece! The photo used for the puzzle might be a flipped version of what's on the Wikipedia page. It's hard for me to tell. In any case, the puzzle image doesn't exactly match that on the Wikipedia page. I couldn't find a better link, but I took a screenshot of the completed puzzle, so here's a link to that:
http://img145.imageshack.us/img145/1958/12rioantiriobridgegreecfi3.jpg

The WhereTHAI last night of St. David's Hall in Cardiff, Wales was a great stumper and even required a clue. My hat is off to Equitriv for solving that one! After the clue came up that the structure was located in the UK, I had a feeling it would be in Wales, due to all the jokes floating around about Welsh puzzles. The first city I looked at was Cardiff, since it's the capital and largest city in Wales. I didn't look thoroughly enough, however, since I never found St. David's Hall. I've been properly scolded by Sherlock Holmes. In any case, good puzzle, thanks editors!

General applause to all the other solvers!

Hi all,
I've been taking screenshots of all the completed WTHAIs since August 1, because I thought it would be fun and interesting to create an online photo album for a retrospective at the end of the month. I've managed to get screenshots of most of the WTHAIs -- others I've reconstructed as best as possible by talking to people who actually saw the puzzles.

If any of you would be interested in helping me with this project, please send me a PM or post in this thread. Ideally, if one of our illustrious Sploofusers from Australia or the UK could help, that would be great, as presumably you'd be awake while I'm asleep.

Thanks!

I'd like to know the Tatum O'Neal photo, also. The link takes you to the IMDB page.

And the bridge Nelly solved appears to be the one linked in Wikipedia but with the image reversed.

The reason the Tatum O'Neal puzzle takes you to the IMDB page is because of the apostrophe in her name. The link to WiIkipedia would not have worked.

BTW, Tatum's photo used in the puzzle (albeit cropped to look more close-up) can be found here: http://images.google.com/imgres?imgurl=http://celebrities.gearlive.com/blogimages/tatum_oneal_crack.jpg&imgrefurl=http://celebrities.gearlive.com/vip/article/q108-tatum-oneal-arrested-for-purchasing-crack/&h=240&w=300&sz=21&hl=en&start=8&um=1&tbnid=_lRqEHuNADPu-M:&tbnh=93&tbnw=116&prev=/images%3Fq%3Dtatum%2BO%2Bneal%26um%3D1%26hl%3Den%26rlz%3D1T4GGLD_en%26sa%3DN

When I look for photos for my puzzles (I can't speak for the other WTHAI editors) and there isn't/I don't like a photo on Wikipedia, I will usually do a search in Google Images to find a different photo. This might give you a place to start looking for photos in case you haven't already looked there.

In anticipation of the discussion of Faro Stella Maris, the link was working this morning. Hopefully it will be working again soon. You can find a brief blurb about the lighthouse here: http://www.unc.edu/~rowlett/lighthouse/arg.htm
This also links to the page I used and also where the photo came from. There's not a lot out on the internet about this lighthouse.

This was kind of a "test" puzzle. Most of the lighthouses in previous puzzles were solved quite quickly - I am assuming people sifted through the list of lighthouses on Wikipedia to find the answer. I purposely picked a lighthouse that wasn't on Wikipedia to see how much more difficult it would be.

Hi Sploofusmaximus,
Thanks so much for taking the time to post all that interesting info and links! Yeah, Google Images is the first place I go to look if the official link doesn't show what we saw in the puzzle.

If anyone would like to see what the actual completed WTHAI looked like for Tatum O'Neal, I took a screenshot of that, and here's a link: http://img145.imageshack.us/img145/3332/15tatumonealcc7.jpg

As to the Rio-Antirio Bridge solved by Nelly -- you know, I still can't tell if it's a flipped or reversed image of what's on Wikipedia, but I trust your eyes, Pepper!

I didn't work on the Stella Mirus lighthouse WTHAI, so I can't offer an opinion. I did see that at least one clue (Argentina) was offered and that it took over 400 guesses to solve, so good stumper! I think it probably makes it easier for players if what we're looking for can be found on Wikipedia, but I'm not averse to you using other sources. Of course, I've yet to solve one of these!

Thanks, Sploofusmaximus, for the explanation. I didn't get to look at the lighthouse one much this morning (that pesky work got into the way), but I did check later. I didn't recognize it as a lighthouse, but I guess the star on top of what appeared to be a statue's head should have clued me into the Stella Maris name. Once you gave a clue on Argentina and water, I guess the puzzle solver figured out it was a lighthouse and went from there.

I can understand wanting to avoid making these too easy, but this one and the recent Wales' one seemed like real stumpers to me. (but obviously not for those who figured it out)

I can imagine one of the tougher decisions is how to crop the photo...

I just realized I wanted to make a correction to my last post above: The Rio Antirio Bridge WTHAI was solved by both Nelly and Mrkelly23. Mrkelly23 put a hyphen in his guess (which is how it is in Wikipedia), but as we know, the system doesn't like punctuation any more than I like oysters, so Mrkelly23's guess wasn't initially accepted. Support has taken care of it, though. Hat tip to the team.

Sorry I haven't updated this thread in the last couple of days -- a bit sleep-deprived here. Anyway, Diane, since you're having trouble with the down arrow, I may create a new thread. This one will likely get unwieldly and slow to load as the month goes on anyway.

More links and talk to come later today. I think we've had several fascinating and sometimes humorous WTHAIs lately. (The finger puppet Who is a perfect example.) Kudos to the editors, not only for finding these, but also for providing a lot of diversity!

Gosh Zeedee, here I've been on this site for 2 years and I never knew what that arrow was for .. just mainly never paid attention. Thanks. That will make it a lot easier on some of these long threads.

Hi everyone,
I created a new thread for chat about the WTHAIs since Zeedee couldn't see the "down" arrow in this thread, and I really didn't want her to be frustrated. To post links, comments, etc., please go to the new thread here: http://www.sploofus.com/bbs_detail.sp?post=103332&cID=6

Thanks a million, and I appreciate your help with this!
