Test Solution Please Ignore

Test Solution, Please Ignore (TSPI) was a team that participated in the MIT Mystery Hunt as well as other online hunts. It was formed in 2014. In 2019, TSPI and Aviation Laws merged to form Test Solution Bees Ignore.

History[edit | edit source]

TSPI was formed in 2014, with early organizational efforts started by reddit user /u/adamtoinfinity.[1] The team name is based off an early Reddit meme, "test post please ignore", which became the most upvoted post in Reddit from 2010 to 2016.[2] Initially, the team organized from the r/mysteryhunt subreddit, which was later repurposed to be a general purpose subreddit for all Mystery Hunt and related puzzle hunt discussion. By 2015, the team had grown to about 50 people.[3] Starting in 2016, the team moved to the /r/testsolution subreddit.

For online hunts, the team often used a team name with an acronym of TSPI, a tradition that has persisted with the successor team (using the acronym TSBI instead).
