A mini-clue quest led up to the discovery of the second storyline clue, which involved [[Staff#Developer|Joey]] changing his user title on MMO Central Forums every so often. One of the first ones was "Gyro?"<ref></ref>, referring to [[Gyro Gearloose]] and his lab. After a slow string of clue leakage, they were put together to form an image hosting site URL<ref></ref>, with the [ URL displaying a JPG image] similar to the cartoon style launcher image seen before. Joey replied to the completed quest post<ref></ref> by giving the finder an [[Testing Keys#Alpha Keys|alpha key]], as well as mentioning: ''"There is more to the picture than you think."''
As far as it is known, the second major clue released was an image (shown right), that was first discovered in the mini-quest.
==The Storyline==
===='''There is Still Much to Solve'''====
After saying that there was more to the picture, many people started looking at and theorizing about certain objects within the image. One member re-posted the image with higher brightness<ref></ref>, and then it could be seen that there was the [[Silly Meter]], a [[Presentation]] [[Gags|gag]], and what appears to be Sellbot Headquarters in the background. [[Staff#Developers|Joey]] posted again saying<ref></ref>: ''"There is more to the picture indeed, however you surely won't find out all of it's mysteries until the future. Sometimes there is more than what you can visualize."''
===='''Putting It All Together'''====
Forum members then started to suggest that the orange monkey was Doctor Surlee. This was followed by more regular changes of [[Staff#Developers|Joey]]'s user title, providing more clues to what the meaning of the image was. According to Joey, the answer was clear and he stated in several posts<ref></ref><ref></ref> that it's necessary to look at the clues already obtained and put them together. At this point discussion shifted to [ Toontown Rewritten | October Discussion Thread #2]. Joey soon confirmed some ideas by saying<ref></ref>: ''"People aren't allowed to change their shirts? I totally just didn't use the wrong texture. The monkey and the 3D image and the monkey in the 2D image are surely the same toons."''
Members of the community were stumped as to how the pictures tied into the storyline, and what "little detail in the image" [[Staff#Developers|Joey]] was talking above. Joey changed his user title to "''.$ U $/''" and posted<ref></ref>: ''"None of the riddles are meaningless"''. People quickly realised that .$ U $/ was supposed to be [[Scrooge McDuck]]'s face<ref></ref> when he realized all the money he could make from the [[The Chairman|big robot]] in the [ original Toontown download video]. In another push, Joey posted<ref></ref>: ''"You have the basics, now go deeper."''
[[Toon]]s started to establish that time travel was likely involved in the storyline, possibly so [[Doctor Surlee]] could go back in time to stop Scrooge McDuck from creating the [[Cogs]], or even create them himself. After a few more thread pages of Toons grabbing at straws and asking for more clues, Joey posted once again saying <ref></ref>: ''"I have no more hints to give for now. You have everything that you need to solve it. The mysteries won't be unveiled until the future."''
===='''Finally We Get It'''====

</gallery>After many failed guesses, one forum member asked if someone got the "elusive detail in the image Joey was talking about" right. To which [[Staff#Developers|Joey]] responded<ref></ref>: ''"You're looking at the wrong picture"''. This was a massive hint that referred to the "elusive detail" being in the launcher image, not the discovered Toontown image. Almost immediately after Joey's post, a forum member posted saying<ref></ref>: ''":O I SEE IT! In the back of the launcher picture is the assembly line in Gyro's lab!"''
===='''That's All for Now'''====
Although [[Staff#Developers|Joey]] didn't reply to the post to confirm it, almost all of the thread agreed that it had to be the subtle detail Joey had mentioned.
Joey answered a post by a forum member that questioned if they had all the clues to solve that part of the storyline<ref></ref>: "''You do. The answer just won't be unveiled until the future as more clues come out."'' He also replied to someone asking if they should continue guessing and theorizing<ref></ref>: ''"Continue. Some have gotten close, however none have been spot on"''.
