I was thinking we might need a thread to unravel some of the avatar mysteries of users on the forum..

The avatar that inspired this post was this one from DC forum member Gothi[c] who helps out with DonationCoder.com server administration:

Can anyone decode the secret message?

Now, in my defense, it only took me a couple minutes...

Code: Text [Select]
  1. ZCZC
  2. ZNY SSSSS
  3. DE J
  4. FM Mr J
  5. TO DC

I figured that it was just some kind of internal joke and didn't even bother to try figuring it out. The rest of the message I recognized immediately, but took a couple minutes to write down as I scrolled through the frames.

Gothi[c]'s real first name is John, so i think the last 2 lines simply say "From John, To DC"
but the first 3 lines have my stumped.

I figured probably "From J to DC", but that was pretty obvious. I didn't know what "J" was though. And as with you, the first 3 lines have me wondering. Base-26? Makes no sense. There's an inside joke there. I just don't get it.

I did wonder about "DE J" being "DJ", but... still no clue.

That 'last' page was intended to be first, as a message header/intro.
It's not really encoded at all.
I'm sure someone will figure it out :D
