Please read this before joining the channels
  • The purpose of this community is to work as a hive mind, to spread knowledge, to share all information, and to allow everyone to participate. We do not hide progress of any puzzles; we provide transparency at all costs, as long as privacy is respected.
  • We need new, fresh minds, as we still have untied ends left. We need to provide all new visitors an equal opportunity to participate in the Cicada 3301 hunt. The main channel (#33012014) has become very noisy over time. To get the situation under control, we have directed solving efforts to the channel #cicadasolvers. Please do not spam, and read the current page of this wikia before asking potentially redundant questions.
  • Some people are forming secret channels and splinter groups. These secret groups are dividing our community and this Wikia, so please use the alternative low noise channels we provide. All those channels should be posted in the topic of the main channel #33012014, and in the list below.
  • If you create a new channel for a specific step of the puzzle, PM one or more channel ops to have it appear in the main channel topic.
  • If you join an alternative, low-noise channel, PLEASE don't ask stupid questions. Google is your friend and Freenode has channels for almost every software with lots of members; seek help there first or use our #3301FAQ channel. Not following this rule annoys experienced members.
  • In the past few days, we have been mentioned in news coverage with BBC, The Guardian, Russia Today and many more.

Also, before you join any of the IRC channels we recommend you view a few minutes of this video and remember: Trust nothing, Verify everything!

Julian Assange Talk from 30C3, listen at least from 20:16 until 23:08 please

the only purpose of this link here is that the quote linked describes the guidelines of this community perfectly

Are you with the media? Write to our unofficial contact at for more information, questions, or to contact this year's 3301 solvers.Edit

The main communication between members of the collective is IRC. In 2014 we used Freenode, and the channel can be found at the links listed below.

Note: Sometimes we have to block all webchat users in certain channels, so these links might not work. Also, you must use a dedicated IRC client or irc2go.
