The treasure hunt lists have been uploaded here:
Some modifications should still be made, such as correcting typos and so

what the treasure hunt is.

Thanks Komi. We will create a page on our website (
) that explains the treasure hunt and
lists each of these sites. Will notify you as soon as it is online and
check whether you are happy with it.
