So near and yet so far...

I have the hidden message, which reads like a crossword clue (and even thought I had a couple of answers which fitted it) but that last little step just isn't clicking Rolling Eyes

There can be a conflict of research results depending on which research means you use to solve the elements of the puzzle.

SparkPlug: From one of your guesses, which was the 'secret phrase', one was wrong and the succession of answers following that seemed to be themed around that one. The mod above should have corrected that element for you, hopefully.

OK folks, from where i'm sitting, you still have an element wrong. Further investigation would reveal that there are some considerable variations in results from sites that folks would use to research this information.

[edit to remove now irrelevant information]

I had a hunch that it was the right idea, but because I wasn't getting anywhere, I kept straying away from it and trying other things, but thankfully, I kept returning.

Thanks, Morff, to you and your team, for a challenging contest. I'm looking forward to #2.

This puzzle is certainly difficult, I have done the first part but cant get anything from it. I am pretty sure the middle two words are correct as the two parts of them are side by side in the puzzle. I cant just about make a sentence out of the whole thing but there is nothing on google. As it is the last puzzle the obvious way to go would be a meta but once again I cant find the link. Could someone take pity on a poor soul please

Bimbogami can comfirm that yes, the layout of the puzzle is significant, he rarely goes to the trouble of structuring his puzzle for no reason.

He is concerned however that you may not have all of the inventory correct, he feels that a set he saw you working with some time ago had one crucial article wrong.

If you have the correct set now, then while it will not be plain sailing for you, it should be solvable. Laughing

I think...I know we have the right set.. But as I am a dutch person I am trying to do all kind of things .. speaking out loud the "secret" message..The children think I am mad... Embarassed Cant find anything to ask my best friend to help... the 2 lines with 2 "words" gave me something to google with but there are too many possibilities...

This is a tricky one.
Obviously this is the last puzzle so it was never intended to be easy. Also, its quite difficult to hint without hinting too much.

It can be solved, someone has solved it on the site and so has as our ever-patient puzzle tester.

Its safe to say that Googling won't help directly. If you have the phrase correct then you just need to look at what it is saying and take it from there.
