When the puzzle results come up, if you look at the page source in the area of posting a comment on the puzzle, there is a field called "QID". I wonder if that is the puzzle ID?

Thanks UI. I will try doing that. Do your personal comments remain when you as the user view the puzzle, or are they in a stack and get pushed out as more comments are made?

The only place I can find the puzzle ID is under recent games. However, in the games I've played since looking here, each ID is increasingly larger, I am wondering how these ID's work?

Confusing Hint

Corn is relative to a farm (Lone Oak), Iron Hill relative to a town (Eldon).
