There are many things people have discussed, view them all, starting with two figures of which are tall, one becomes plump and the other transforms, occasionally with a bump."

If you work it out, then good job, your bright!

I don't even know what I'm trying to figure out. That's just a sentence. That's like me saying:

"There's a lot of hair on my head, and they all have slightly different shades. Some grow quickly, but some grow slowly."

Good luck solving the riddle!

It is like that yes, but you all do what the sentence signifies every time you come on DDO. Ok, no more clues you lucky people.

It's DDO posting related. At a guess Askbob is one raging at thread necromancy.

No, it's DDO related yes, but it has nothing to do with anyone particular. "I haven't been on DDO for a while, do I need to catch up or what!"

Check the leader board, your number of debates steadily grows (plump) and the rank/position changes from novice/expert (transforms) often through review of past debates (bump).

I begin by restructuring it.

"There are many things people have discussed, view them all
Starting with the two figures of which are tall
One becomes plump
and the other transforms, ocasionally with a bump"

In poetic form, each hint is isolated to a differnt line and is easily deciphered from there.

Line 1: discussion is in reference to the forums, viewing them all instructs us to go to the list of forums

Line 2: the two figures of which are tall could refer either to topic count or post count, the top two of both are currently ddo and miscellaneous forums.

Lines 3 & 4: The topic count grows one at a time and more steadily and the post count will rise with sudden bursts of speed as new topics arise.

Thus my hypothosis is this, that the answer is the topic and post counts of each forum.

I could be wrong, but what the heck, might as well try.

Now I pose a riddle,
It is a chest with no opening and yet is easily opened,
It contains gold that is of no worth,
The prosperous have no lack of me,
While the starved would happily embrace me, consuming my fruits with gladness.
What am I?

In the relationship between Obama and the rest of the U.S..... I think the U.S. is getting the short end of the hockey stick.

Closer than anyone else, but still you have not correctly solved the thing that was told.

Is it as simple as checking the intro page, the friends and account boxes are much taller, and the friends box gets full/plump as you gather friends, and the other can can transform though old debates closing.

Or similar, looking at the profile page and similar the statistics/percentile and debate/wall areas.

Is it Boxxy.

What has an inside but no outside.
A left and right, but not an up or down.
It can be opened or closed, but never can be shut.
It is always in the dark, but is a constant source of light.

(its not Boxxy)

No, sorry. You were closer the first time.
