Does anyone know if the information on how to make the hot stuffing is accurate? I tried it following instructions to the letter, but got the message "You don't have enough of one of the necessary items to make that dish." Is it still possible to make it, or has it been stopped? --Arthas 14:00, 12 December 2006 (CST)

  • Do you actually have both of the ingredients, and did you enter the numbers properly? --Quietust (t|c) 14:08, 12 December 2006 (CST)
    • As it turns out, I was doing something wrong, so I've got it now. Thanks for the help.--Arthas 16:07, 15 December 2006 (CST)

Is it just me, or does spoiling this fall under the same category as spoiling the leaflet? It's there for people with trivial outside knowledge (php in this instance, old Infocom games for the latter) to find, and isn't really meant for everyone. Antipode 15:06, 24 April 2006 (CDT)

  • The leaflet code gives big stat boosts, whereas this item currently doesn't have any known use. Besides, Jick and company specifically asked that the leaflet code not be spoiled, but they never said anything about not spoiling this. In fact, they helped point us in the right direction. --Quietust 15:22, 24 April 2006 (CDT)
    • Regardles, the leaflet codes are totally unnecessary. They're essentially a nice easter egg for trying out the old codes which texventure players try in every game of the genre. Yes, the stats are nice to have, but a hidden feature is still a hidden feature, and this item should have never been spoiled so blatantly. --Antipode 15:31, 24 April 2006 (CDT)
      • Since you're one of the largest collectors of this item, I think your motives are monetary in nature. At the very least, a sad attempt to maintain some ePenis. One could argue that the Louvre Stats are nice, but not necessary, thus the wiki shouldn't spoil the fun of how to map the Louvre. --terrabyte 11:35, 30 May 2007 (CDT)
      • The only reason the leaflet codes are not in the wiki is that Jick asked that they not be spoiled. In this case, Jick helped players figure it out. There really is no comparison.--RyokoYahagi 15:41, 24 April 2006 (CDT)
        • Whether or not the leaflet codes should be spoiled is another issue. You could easily argue that spoiling anything on this site is not allowed, but then this site would not exist. The thing that sets that one set of information apart from the rest, is the specific request of Jick to not have them shown. Otherwise, I am sure within 10 minutes of his "Okay" they would be posted on the wiki. --SomeStranger (Talk | Contribs) 15:52, 24 April 2006 (CDT)
  • This item has no intrinsic value - figuring out how to acquire it is what makes it have worth (even the mall prices back this up). By openly spoiling the recipe, it is pretty much useless (except for as a shout-out to HotStuff ;)). I would have been inclined to visit the wiki if it had been spoiled before I figured out how to make it, and I think many others would as well. I argue the recipe should be omitted to preserve the fun for KOL'ers who want the experience of getting something they technically shouldn't be able to get.
    • By coming to the Wiki in the first place and taking the time to search for the item hot stuffing you are already asking for spoilers. There might be a total of 40 pages in the wiki that do not spoil something in one way or another. If new users don't want to know how to figure it out then they should not come here in the first place (or at least not search for hot stuffing)--SomeStranger (Talk | Contribs) 18:35, 24 April 2006 (CDT)
    • (except for as a shout-out to HotStuff ;)) ... enough said.--Yiab 21:10, 24 April 2006 (CDT)

What is YOURHASHHERE???--Trekkie626 19:41, 24 April 2006 (CDT)

  • If you read the text right below the website link you will see what it is. If you are having trouble finding your hash code then in the viewsource window press "Control + F" on a windows computer and type in "pwd" To the right of the thing is a code, that is your pwd and should replace the YOURHASHHERE section. A new hash code is generated each time you log on.--SomeStranger (Talk | Contribs) 19:44, 24 April 2006 (CDT)

I have been having some trouble findind the hash code, and I have Internet Explorer FYI. If you can help please post here or PM me in-game (Piplup). I dont get what you mean by "viewsource window" either. --PipIup 03:56, 19 October 2008 (UTC)

  • Er, which? The page goes into great detail explaining how to view source in IE. --BagatelleT/C 21:28, 20 October 2008 (UTC)

Is it possible that this does not work anymore? I was able to find my hash under "pwd" in the source code of the Colossal Closet page. However it does not seem to be within the character page anymore, as it is described here. So something seems to have changed there. When I now copy/paste the string with NUMBER replaced by 1, and HASH replaced with my hash (which has 32 digits), and enter return or reload, then nothing happens. --Mr Crac (talk) 15:01, 6 October 2013 (UTC)

  • I was able to cook one up using my remote forms method. I was not able to get the javascript method on the page to work. --Club (#66669) (Talk) 01:38, 7 October 2013 (UTC)
    • Okay, would you share with us how this "remote forms" method works? :-) --Mr Crac (talk) 19:59, 8 October 2013 (UTC)
      • you write a program that makes the same set of calls that your browser does. it's how mafia works. seems that the game is checking that you're using a proper "POST" call (which parcels up the data separately) and not a vanilla "GET" (which is just a URL.) cunning. --Evilkolbot (talk) 20:07, 8 October 2013 (UTC)
  • I got this to work in IE after a little finagling. I looked at the posted address on the main page and deleted all the spaces so that the address ended up being one long line. As soon as I did that, it worked for me. But it still didn't work for me in Firefox. --RicFule (talk) 19:19, 4 June 2014 (UTC)
    • I think they disabled the ability to run Javascript in the address bar in Firefox as a security feature. It still works if you run it in the Scratchpad (shift F4). --Fig bucket (talk) 01:11, 5 June 2014 (UTC)
