Just a question - is Uncle Arnolds page supposed to be functional before I do anything to it?
E.g. without editing the page if I just click and vote on stuff am I supposed to see a change in the score? I see nothing, the buttons have no effect.

So that means for the final result am I expected to modify the server state and be able to see a page that will load with the raging inferno right up top?

I ask because I know how to push in different values - and it will send me off to what I assume is the success page. However even there it just has a blue "Go On" button aiming at the next task. It doesn't actually say "success" or anything.


As far as I can recall, the server side just checks your input and if it fits the task, you get forwarded to the 'Go on' page.

I completed the mission by locally changing the HTML source code, but I'm having trouble doing it using Javascript injection. Can anyone possibly help me see what I'm doing wrong? Maybe through a PM to prevent spoilers?

Sure. I can't guarantee I'll be quick though.
If you wish, send me your steps and results and we'll figure out where the possible misunderstanding comes from.

Basic missions where much harder than this one.
Resolved in first attempt in 2 minutes. :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted:

But I worked with HTML no injections so can someone PM me and hep how to make injection in hacker stile because I use old stile hand work methods.

There's really no "hacker style" to meet here. There's simply more than one method of solving this.
You can use a certain browser feature now present in all popular web browsers (a couple of years ago it required a separate browser plugin), or execute JavaScript, without touching any tools, that does the work for you, etc.
Whatever you can come up with to end up wherever you want to be (preferably without unwanted side effects in general).
These are all equally valid solutions.
You could even skip using a browser at all, but that'd be beyond what makes sense.

If I'm not mistaken, the method you are curious about is the no-tool one I mentioned above.
(Tip: Make sure your script does not have a return value as that'll overwrite your whole DOM)

Back in the day, the oldies (sorry guys, we're old AF, you'll have to live with it :mrgreen:) usually did it using either any of the aforementioned methods or... uhmm... let's put it this way: by downloading and editing something locally (which I guess is what you referred to as "hand work methods" - shall we call it a handjob? :?).

Sidenote: The "injection" everyone keeps and was talking about back then is actually not the proper name for the feature/technique, but if I gave you the right one, it'd give the whole thing away. Let's call it Somethinglet.

PS.: AFAIK Firefox currently won't work. Not completely sure what's up with it, but it won't execute JS via our subject method. You can enable a certain setting I believe...
