    Note sure how to join up? It is easy, head over to the registration page at

    https://2020se.cipherchallenge.org/account-login/

    Enter a username and a password, together with some security questions and you are in.

    You will be asked to set up or join an existing team (even if you are taking part alone) and then you will be a member of the BOSS family, ready to take part in the Challenge, or just to learn and post on the Forum.

    You can head over to the Training and Development section to pick up an ID card and to explore all the training resources we have there, or mooch around in the Library or Cinema sections for more ideas for further study.

    Welcome to BOSS

    Thanks Harry, looking forward to this impromptu cipher cracking session, I thought I had much longer to rework my programs for next year but evidently not 😉

    Quick question: How can I add a profile photo, so you can all revulse at my ugly mug?

    As I recall, It’s a wordpress thing – search for “gravatar”. I think it’s tied to an email address, rather than to your account here though. (Willing to be corrected on that, especially as I have never tried!)

    Please don’t set it to be something the elves would disapprove of – I think only have one tool to stop people seeing it, and that’s hiding all your posts. I’d rather not have to use it!

    Also, while pictures of ugly mugs should be fine, images of you (or anyone else) won’t be I’m afraid! It’s not personal, but we are trying to abide by GDPR best practice, and one thing a photo definitely is, is identifiable personal information. Since we can’t verify ages we have to treat everyone as U13 so we are not collecting or publishing anything like that.

    Ha ha ha ha! I would never use /my own/ face. Can’t risk the possibility that my old “friends” from the Stasi might find me.

    Harry, what is the name of the font that you used for the headings? The one that is sans-serif and somewhat aged? Thanks.

    You might be interested in this free aged typewriter font:

    I’m so happy to be back so soon (though the circumstances aren’t exactly happy). I’m looking forward to Thursday, and to try my best. Hopefully this time I manage to finish the last challenge.
    Good luck everyone, and have fun.

    I’m just glad to have something to do other than endless poem analysis for english!!!

    Please could someone leave a little more detail on how to change forum profile picture?

    This is my idea of Christmas – an extra cipher challenge! (long as Madness didn’t help write these ones! kidding!) Bring on my 4th year!

    @Ciphersrus
    Go to wordpress.com and create a profile. You do not need to use the same username, but your email must match the one you used for NCC. Then go to gravitar.com and log in with your new wordpress credentials. There should be a link for “getting started” or “create your avatar” or whatever. Then choose upload an image from your computer. Then upload it.
