LuckieCharm, the non-competitive mode you're talking about already exists. Sort of. It's what happens when you don't log in. Your times get added to the stats for any individual puzzles you...

I suppose it depends on how accessible you want your puzzle to be, especially for non-native speakers. And how good you are at making sure the clues are unambiguous. Personally, I like those kinds...

Yeah, I remember the old percent completed leader board and how many perfect scores there were at the top every month. And now that I think about how long I've been playing here, I'm kind of amazed...

One should always get the same solution regardless of the grid format. After all, the grid is just a visual aid to finding the unique solution which satisfies all the clues. As for which categories...

Agreed. I miss the completion rate and solve time rankings they used to have on the old site. You had to be high enough in the points ranking to be eligible for either of those lists (I forget what...

It's related to how many times you've posted on the forums. I think the threshold is 30 posts to move you from junior member to member.

What if the pause button stopped the clock, but also added a significant time penalty to your score? Like something in the ballpark of the average solving time for that size puzzle.

Four of the top five players on the All-Time Rankings board are Junior Members, so I'm pretty sure puzzle solving doesn't enter in to it.

If you're finding the solutions OK, just slower than you'd like, the best thing to do is to practice, practice, practice. You'll naturally get faster at parsing the clues and at seeing the places...

Adam is neither Wilbur nor the winner of the chicken wing contest, so according to clue #6, he can't be from Vincennes or have started at 11:45. That should get you a bit further.

The Undo button is wonderful for when I don't notice a mistake immediately, but it would be even nicer if also undid my moving clues from the unused to the used section.
