    Another clue: this term is a common expression used by programmers on a regular basis.

    Off Topic:

    Staff members, perhaps PM me if you know the answer, so we can save the prize for other members.

    Hey, well done everyone. I hope this was a fun exercise. I had a feeling clue5 ("this term is a common expression used by programmers on a regular basis") might give it away, and indeed, correct answers have quickly followed!

    Both Tkauran and scannon got it, but I'll have to give the award to Tkauran. Well done to both of you!

    I think this is worth doing again. Do others agree? It was fun to run a number of common web terms back and forth through the translator until they were basically unrecognizable.

    I honestly thought it was a fun and interesting way to have a competition, it really made me think when I saw the clues.

    You were right though, hint #5 was a dead giveaway hahaha.

    It was great fun and the clues were clever and well thought. I would have never guessed it though
    @Tkauran ; Congratulations for winning the prize
    @scannon ; You did a terrific job too

    I'll post another clue today—something much more revealing. The guesses so far have been great ... but I'll admit that no one has got it yet.
    Where is our extra clue??

    The competition is closed now. I seeded the clues through this thread, but also listed them gradually in my first post.
