*bump* hint time #2: Not every member of a group has equal value, and numbers that come around, wrap around.

Edit:
The fifth and final challenge of Cemetech Contest #15 is here, which means you have just over one week to submit all five solutions for the contest. Like Challenge 4, this challenge is related to images, so we suggest you think long and hard about possible ways to interpret the number (numbers?) below. When you figure out the cipher and create your solution program, make sure that as in the first three challenges, it takes a string as input via Ans or stdin. It's hopefully enough of a clue to tell you that the output for this challenge should be an image either on the graphscreen, in a picture variable, or for computer programs, as a PNG or GIF image. As with the previous two challenges, we may publish a clue on Friday afternoon at 5pm ET, but we encourage you to try to solve it before Friday to earn maximum points, and we will decide whether to post a clue based on how many entrants have figured out the cipher. Good luck!

Challenge 5: 1111144444444433333333333211112223321122223333333444444444322222222233444

Challenge #5, Hint #2 time: the object described is an Etch-a-Sketch, which lets you generate an image by using knobs to move a cursor.

At least one person has solved all five challenges, and only for one challenge did it take more than 24 hours for the first entry to be received.

There are chalanges in Cemetech contest? I thought there were only challenges, not shalanjes nor chalanges. :P

Yeah, same, sadly. I lost you guys after the 2nd challenge. Maybe the fact I didn't felt to do anything after Christmas didn't helped.
