Yeah, but usually forum posts are visible to everyone else.
Yes. Usually. But it's not a good idea for them to be visible to all when it's a contest and one has to get the correct answer to be eligible to win.
Inno didn’t mention that answers would be invisible to others,
No, we didn't. Our bad. But why would it matter if it's visible to other players? Unless for some strange reason you thought it would be invisible to us, too. However, that's not a logical assumption.
so it’s a reasonable assumption that that is NOT the place to submit.
That is not a logical conclusion. If you had not been able to post on the contest page at all, then you could assume that, but the fact that they're not visible to others only leads to one logical assumption and that is that we didn't want people copying other players' answers.
I’ve truly never seen a contest with so little information on how to play it.
Originally, maybe so. However, since on Friday (day 3 of contest) there was an edit to the original post of this thread explicitly stating the one and only place to post answers, and since day 2 didn't require an answer, day 1 is the only day where people had an excuse for posting in the wrong place.

Then why not read THE FIRST POST IN THIS THREAD since it tells you where to post your answers. Hint: NOT in this thread.

It is the last day of our little celebration and today we would like to know your favorite memory of playing Forge of Empires! ... Please submit the correct answer until April 30, 2019.
Who decides which memories are correct and which ones are incorrect?! LOL I'll pass. I don't want my favorite memory being deemed incorrect!

Where are the answers and winners of expired contests?
I admit I didn’t read all the gibberish of various posts in this thread, and can’t see an adequate location for them (the answers and winners*)

A user is smart. Users are dumb, entitled, don't read anything and you know it!
This is a confusing statement. Aren't "users" just a collection of... users? So... if they're smart as individuals, what makes them dumb in a group? An individual doesn't cease to be an individual upon joining a group.

Really sad way of celebrating 7 years, should have been gifts hidden during 7 days among the incidents. Also a login bonus could have been a nice way to celebrate. Need to login all seven days else it start over from Day1....
Like day 1 gives 10000 coins , day 2 gives 20000 supplies, Day 3 - 300 Goods, Day 4 - 40 Diamonds. Day 5 - X amounts of Medals, Day 6 - 60 FPs Day 7 one free expansion.
Just a suggestion on how to celebrate anniversary's

On the same thread the answers were posted.

Only the ones that have finished will be visible with all the submitted entries and final answer. Go to the last post of the contest day thread to see the winners

Just because I saw several comments about this... And I didnt win (at least not the prizes, but I LOVED the back and forth so...)

Yes it is obscured by the other two paths... But it "IS" the only light path, which b y itself is what made it stand out to me.

I’ll state the obvious so Inno sees this feedback very clearly...

All CORRECT answers should have received a prize!

The prizes were nothing special and nothing different than what could be earned by playing the game. It would’ve cost Inno nothing and at least it would have generated some goodwill between the players and the game provider. Instead, we’ve seen how Inno really values it’s players.

Sure, but the original paths were all the same color. The version you're looking at has been highlighted after the fact to show the winning path.
