Indeed. Level 8 has a nice obvious answer, except that the stupid site won't accept it. Between this and killing zombies, how am I supposed to get any work done?

I was well beyond months, thank you. There are plenty of other words in English beginning with "sept" which lead to the same answer, or a close variation. The actual answer seems to be a huge waste of time for anyone who didn't happen to study French however. Oh well.

Now stuck on 13 too.

It's embarassing but I can't get past 3... Am I missing something? Well, clearly I am.

Hint 1 for getting from 3 to 4: case matters.

Hint 2: Are you familiar with Roman numerals?

Thanks Jim. Didn't think about case. Now I can't get to 13. When you all say you're stuck on 12 does that mean you made it to 13 or that you can't get to 13?

I think it means got to 13, can't get to 14. That's what I meant, anyway. Though getting from 12 to 13 was challenging too. I've since gotten up to 17 using Google - not for a key or hints from others specific to this puzzle, but for general info. I retract my complaint about going from 7 to 8, in the sense that you ain't seen nuthin' yet. You will need reference materials for several along the way.

Any hint from 13 to 14? I've tried out different significances for the number 14, but in vain.

Hint for 13-to-14: This is the first (and so far, only) one that has nothing to do with the next number. Think of it as a standalone question, not part of a sequence.

Even then, I ultimately just plugged in something I found with Google. And just as well, as this wasn't something I was familiar with.

[Jim]:Hint for 13-to-14: ... Think of it as a standalone question, not part of a sequence.

I'm still stuck at 13!

Need more hint: Is the next URL a one-word answer to the question or is it made up of a few words? Is this a fill-in-the-blank kind of question? Thanks.

That's what I meant by 13-to-14. At 13, trying to get to 14.

Hint: It's multiword. Use the standard separator from previous questions.

It would be fun to look at the access logs to that site.

13 (trying to get to 14) is still kicking my ass.

wahoo! now I'm on 20 trying to get to 21.

As Jim said, you'll definitley need a search engine to figure out clues.
