Number of contributors: more than 1300
Number of trolls: 123 people found a correct sequence, 20 of them found quite a few
Number of tested sequences: 66227/78125 (84.771%)
Number of false positives: 515
The solution had been marked as negative about 5 hours after the app went live either by someone trying to ruin the efforts of the others, because of an error from the player inputting the sequence of due to an error in the code.
Overall I am very satisfied of the project, it was shared by many on Twitter and on various forums as well as on Kotaku. I managed to set-up a very useful application in a matter of hours using Rails, Heroku and Bootstrap. The current website will remain live as I see no reason to take it down, I have put it in a frozen state to preserve its state at the time the sequence was found."
