    I am not trying to get the key in this way, it is very difficult. I'm trying to win a key in the other open events.

    All of the keys previously were being won by people who simply wrote scripts to catch em. I dunno bout now though, perhaps it still happens perhaps not. EIther way it's almost impossible to get a key from there.

    to prevent this there should be random "prefixes" added to the keys, funny thing though, if they know it can be scripted they haven't done anything about it.

    Whats really sad is that a lot of these codes are being obtained by the same few people and being redistributed to their friends. They are getting them through scripts. Oh well though. Always another day.

    I am noticing a lot of people blaming scripts for getting the key but no one has shown any proof of this. I have a feeling that people just aren't fast enough and blaming other means because they got beat to the punch and just can't except that someone was faster then they are.

    It reminds me of my days of playing UT 2003 when I would get blamed of running an aim bot because I got so good with the sniper rifle. No one had proof they all just assumed.

    I also agree that trying to get a key this way is silly. If you really wanted a key that bad then you should have carved a pumpkin. I got my VIP Beta key via the bumper sticker contest but I entered every contest they had till I won something.

    actually in fecebook on every code (well last few events) there was abigale or Abi in the code , which you needed to delete before using the code so no scripts there no more!

    Why can't they just be like every other game and randomly hand them out instead of this lameness. Or how about based on the stuff they made us fill out like history and experience etc. At this point I'd pay for a beta code.

    They are...but we won't know about it, really. The 24/7 testers are picked from the beta thread and feedback etc. (or so they say) but they'll be under a strict NDA and can't tell us if they're in or not. The weekends are more like stress tests, really, so that's why they're handing out keys left and right. I know the terminology etc. sucks but we'll just have to wait and see how it all turns out. In the meantime, keep an eye out for something like the pumpkin carving event - it was a pretty easy way to get a key.

    If I'm parsing the message for a string of length > 20, and I know the prefix, or even scattered hidden word; why can I not now change my script to filter these prefixes

    StringTokenizer postTokens = new StringTokenizer(post);
    while(postTokens.hasMoreTokens())
    if(postTokens.nextToken().length > 20)
    // filter and substring here..

    I don't know-- i haven't tried this, but it does intrigue me as a software engineer. To me, adding an element to the code only slows people entering rather then a program from what I can tell.
