    ok so we know what the questions are but know what are the answers?

  • +3 votes

    These are my guesses.

    Q) The deal with the most clicks from the 2019 Click Frenzy event belonged to which brand?:
    A) Bose

    Q) How many barbecues and grills are shown in the 'BBQ, Outdoor & Camping' category.
    A) 12 (14 if including the banner).

    •  

      So u reckon they aren't counting MyDeal as a brand?

      • +2 votes

        Bose or Bose Australia?

      • +1 vote

        nah, I looked too quickly and hinted the wrong ans

        if you check the website i posted here,
        My Deal is the top retailer
        Bose Australia/Bose is the top brand

        though it could be My Deal.. who knows what Click Frenzy will choose..

      •  

        My bad. The hitwise statistics are very confusing.
        It's most likely MyDeal then.

        •  

          I think the question for the TV asked about brands and I am pretty sure the right answer was mydeal

      •  

        The question is which brand from the most clicked deal.

        Google search shows the most clicked deal might be Bose Headphones - so the brand would be Bose

    •  

      Hate questions like the bbq one. It should be 14 but who knows

      •  

        hmmm i counted 13 with the banner
        edit: sorry im idiot, 14 including banner

  • +3 votes

    watch them pull the prizes for the Macbook and Switch now because everyone here will immediately submit the same answers.

    Someone just posted on Twitter that you guys found out about this and tagged click Frenzy https://twitter.com/kingjigsaw/status/1263425312349499392?s=...
    Everyone report it so it gets taken down!!!

      It never was a "fair game" to begin with - location specific questions, arbitrary question etc..

      •  

        The google ads / actual notification bell ones where you were racing to enter the passwords were arguably a bit more "fair" than what they're doing now which is relying on using the system time to determine when to call the endpoints to get and display the popup data.

      You shouldn't be abusing the Twitter reporting system…

        twitter shouldnt allow russian spies to meddle with elections lol

        You also shouldn't abuse and snitch out the Ozbargain Community ;)

        because Twitter's reporting system should be held in such high regard

      oh what! what a douchebag

    •  

      he has no follower. and this OzBargain not allowing me to comment more than 5 times in this situation.

    •  

      Even though you're only the messenger who alerted us to this foul act, I have an intense urge to downvote you because I need an outlet to show my rage against this King Jigsaw douchebag! Lol! XP

    Is anyone able to DM me how to decryption works. I tried doing it myself but Idk what to do after finding the key. I'm just curious about APIs

    • +1 vote

      I had no idea either, just setup a breakpoint where the decryption is called and watched it run to understand.

      •  

        I know this is a stupid question, but my mind is blank from staring at a screen pointlessly for these stupid deals… but do i want to change my clock forward or back?

      •  

        ohh in the Popup.tsx? does that cause the json to change? in the for each popup?

        •  

          Yep. So you can see where it's calling the openPopup() you can then use that to have the application run the decryption process itself provided you have the correct id

  •  

    dams nows the secrets are out and everyone is gonna be ready for the next frenzy knowing on what and how to do it lol

    • +2 votes

      Every year they have changed the method of delivery

    •  

      well there's no clear cut answers though

  •  

    Is the Macbook the next deal or did i miss out?

    • +38 votes

      both. it's the next deal and you will miss out.

      •  

        You sir deserve an up vote :)

    • +2 votes

      you missed it already

      •  

        I guess we all missed it … because of the rat

    The deal with the most clicks from the 2019 Click Frenzy event belonged to which brand?

    •  

      Bose

    •  

      my deal

      •  

        which one?

        •  

          With so much time , there still seems to be no certainty on the answer ! Bose , MyDeal or something else ?

          •  

            @Unique1234: If more ppl answer bose, mydeal will be the answer they go for and vice versa. you just cant win

            •  

              @toogoodtobetrue: btw that hitwise page seems to show the Nov 2019 Click Frenzy event, not the May one. Does it matter?

            •  

              @toogoodtobetrue: I am using two different devices with two different accounts so I can guess both. Hopefully I am quick enough with the correct answer

              •  

                @dylatronn: will that work? i thouhgt one win per ip address

                •  

                  @t0087669: idk I'm using mobile data and internet

                •  

                  @t0087669: Plus there is only one correct answer, so I will only get one win if that does happen

    No luck at all so far in any deals past couple of years. Does anyone know what number of items per deal are given? If its in single digit, I wont even bother to sit in front of my laptop.

    •  

      They don't ever announce the exact number. Probably so more people will attempt it.

  •  

    What exact time is the apple mac deal?

  • +5 votes

    Anyone able to double check if they changed the popup time or question yet ?

    Okay, guys good night to all. It was good 3 days chatting with strangers. It was fun overall. Good Luck to all and congratulations to winners. Cheers 🥂🥂

  •  

    So with the BBQ and Grill Question. Does anyone think it will be a curve ball; and you also need to include the amount of 'barbecue' and 'grill' words also appear?

    •  

      I was thinking the curve ball would be including the Grills in the Weber Logo

  •  

    Sorry a few questions ( if its still on). For those who win, don't they have to complete the purchase before CF ends which is tonight? If that's right, the outcome of next 2 questions will be known tonight? Do they send text message or email?

    Upvote for bose

  • +2 votes

    To be honest; the dude who got the questions originally can just force a packet to be sent to the server and fake the timestamp? so he's probably already won, he had the knowledge to get the questions, so im going to assume he's smart enough to respond too …. and here was me trying to research and take notes from two nights ago :P

    • +1 vote

      it would definitely make more sense for CF to record their logs with their own server's timestamp rather than use the time injected by the user

      •  

        Logic follows they would also do this with regards to when the questions get released. However, turns out you can quite literally just change the time on your computer forward to see the question.

        •  

          It seems that the system was designed to have the time the questions go live leaked easily. But the actual questions not leakable, hence the need to have an encrypted server side data of the question, with a decryption process client side to run when the time starts.

      •  

        You would think that, but in the CF DB it has a column called answeredAt which as you guessed it is injected by the user…….
        answeredAt: moment()

    •  

      They’d probably be able to filter that out

    •  

      If only. I've not submitted any responses after I discovered this as I would be breaking Click Frenzy's TOS and I didn't want to get into legal trouble with them. I was just amazed that no one else had thought to find out how the popups were being delivered.

      •  

        I aint gonna lie; I did try it; and got to the point of having the network page up 2 nights ago and waited for the time, but I dont have the knowledge to understand code… I usually do this when I just want an image or a sound file off a website :P and crawl through till I find the one I want. I did suggest a scraper a few nights back…

        •  

          Yeah, you were the one who gave me the idea to understand it. In the end it was a lot simpler than I'd have thought.
