they probably have 5 times as many people trying to do it, when I went and did it on my republic toon there were all of 3 people waiting, patiently for their turn.

I imagine a room full of tards all trying to hurry through everything would make it something of a bother.
I believe in people bombing
I believe in people warring
I believe diseases coming
I believe that's why I'm running

Well I guess, but it's just about sitting there and clicking on the datapad until you get it Plus they can always switch planet instances.

I have no idea how to do this quest. I click the datapad and then when I click the objects around the holodancer, nothing happens.

NM: couldn't see the inner ring from where I was standing. DOH!

Update: Nevermind, after resetting it again it seems to have worked. Might have been it was always being used, which is why it appeared to not work. Thanks for the info! Problem resolved, ignore the below.

I've done this, reset the main mission 'The Grand Acquisitions Race' several times, nothing works to grant the bonus mission after you've failed it. I've also reset 'Another Lead', the mission which gives you the bonus mission to acquire the 'Collected Writings of Tiethiagg', and it refuses to grant it again. This is the only bonus mission I have left to do, every other bonus mission was completed smoothly with no problems. Anything else I could do to try and have the bonus mission which rewards the 'Collected Writings of Tiethiagg' bestowed again?

The writings quest is bestowed when you click the datapad. It has nothing to do with any emails. Go to the puzzle and click the data pad.

Just look at General Chat when the event kicked off - "I know this brand new event just started, and I glanced at the quest text but I'm still lazy, so can someone tell me where everything is?" "It's random, and have you tried looking, like everyone else?" "Okay.. what are the random spots I need to check?"

I would have thought 'scavenger hunt' was self-explanatory, but I guess I'm an old grouch.

I eventually got into a group that successfully finished it. However, I was level 39 and everyone else was 50. I didn't get credit; couldn't loot the box. I noticed all the quests so far sets it to your current level. If I didn't get credit because of level difference, this quest is even more borked up. Is this a bug or working as intended? How are people with levels supposed to finish this? Be lucky with my clicks against 20 other people?

This tiny room should have been instanced or other rooms allocated for different level ranges.
This is why Guild Wars 2 is gonna blow this game out of the water (among many other reasons ofc). There such an event would simply give credit to everyone involved without the hassle of spamming people with group requests, most of which get ignored or declined. Why the **** not let everyone get credit outside of group? This is realy stupid. This isnt everquest or WoW, innovate already.

I do agree the puzzle should be phased out tho
Because there are 20 other people randomly pressing things.
