The Arcane Ensconced by ananas

INSTRUCTIONS: Install a secret message.

I recognized SF0 player i am one year old on the elevator in the architecture building one day, but simply saying, "Hey, sfzero player who climbed doe library, I recognize you from the internet," seemed terribly dull, and I wasn't completely sure it was the right person, so I didn't say anything. But then I kept seeing him around the building and decided, what better way to say hello than through a secret message, placed in a shared location and meaningful only to a person who would know the SF0 logo. The message was to be the blurring of the line between the internet and the real world.

I cut out four little rectangles from leftover process board, drew the SF0 logo on the front of each and wrote on the back, "your identity has been discovered." One was placed in each of the two elevators, one next to the button for the elevators on the ground floor, and one behind the door handle of the studio that I think is used for Architecture 100A.
They were placed between 2 and 3 AM on Friday morning. At noon that day, the one by the ground floor elevators was gone. I didn't even check for the other three, having no faith that any of them would be seen, because it was a Friday, and the last day before spring break, and so many students had already fled campus. Later that night I found an SF0 email notification: the message was received.

Cool. Unfortunatly I know all the players in my area (I think), cos finding one by accident would be very exciting.

All right. That's pretty good. A different take on the task, and one I very much enjoyed. Good job waiting to post until you got that confirmation.

when we discovered your note it was pretty much the last one ... and it had been laying rather dejected-looking on the floor in the corner of one of the elevators (judging by your pictures it was the one hanging above the elevator door - i'm not sure which one of us spotted it first - but i can say it was a very strange and creepy (but awesome) realization that it was a rather directly addressed message to praximity
;) nicely done

That is so much better than my recent "hey, do I know you... from the internet?" Spidere deserved better. I may have to stalk him now to make it up to him....
