I've had that happen once or twice when my internet connection was crazy slow and the puzzle didn't load properly. Have you tried either refreshing the page or reloading the puzzle through the...

I find I solve most puzzles faster if I don't bother marking anything in the lower section of the grid except for X=Y type clues. That isn't always possible, but I probably manage it 90% of the...

Can you post a screen cap of your grid so far? That'll give us a better idea of what you're not seeing.

I think jeffnn is right about needing an eidetic memory. I have a pretty good memory, and even after seeing an individual puzzle a dozen times, I can't ever remember any part of the solution. Not...

I just completed puzzle #21842877. It's a 4x7 puzzle, and I got a time in the average range, so I was expecting at least a few hundred points. Instead, I got only 39 points. I suspect there's a...

I think it's taking longer than normal because almost all the data collected in February was lost due to the server issues.

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, the format is a bit odd. On the "High Scores" page, click on "Monthly Competitions" to get the current month's leader board.

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...

Well, that doesn't bode well for the OCD part of my brain that really wants those numbers to match (especially since I actually completed the darn puzzle). But thanks for the warning.

Bug: Unrecoverable incomplete puzzle

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...

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...

I would guess B as well. Counting the number of angles/sides, you get 12, 7, 9, 6, __. One possible pattern I see would continue 6, 5, 3, 4, 0, 3, which would make B the right answer. Of course,...

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.
