Ok! So I guess I can occupy this space for available riddles.

Here's how I start: Each riddles coming from me will have a corresponding point that may vary on how easy or difficult a riddle is. Every correct answer guarantees a point and a bonus to the first one to answer. Your names and your ranks (based on your total points) will be placed in my signature.

Let's see how far can you go :) Goodluck and Weebee for me XD.

-----------------------

The man thought he had heard enough and walked up to the door. The doorman said ,"ten" and the man replied, "five." But he was not let in. What should have he said? (5pts)
