fast times

I will say that I have solved a puzzle in less than 2 minutes (120 sec) before, and under 200 seconds very often. And I have never used a spreadsheet or saved my answers. Don't quite know how Derek...

X-ing negatives

zztop,

It depends on the puzzle. I X all the boxes for the 5 people clue, always. That always helps me later on. I always mark all the negatives in the first row. I will do the ones below the...

fast times

You will find that once you get used to the process, you will get much faster. That process is the same one I use, and it works well for me. The other thing I do that helps me get faster time is...

If I see it again, I'll try to get a screen shot. It was basically a live broadcast of the Small Business Summit, complete with the word live in the upper right hand corner.

difficult puzzle

I think I had that puzzle. As I recall, they are truly out of order. So mark the 8:30 in the row for 8:30, and you should be ok.

Having similar clues doesn't bother me - I like the added challenge. It has occasionally led to longer solve times when I make silly mistakes. :P But it's good that the option is there for those...

Marking clues

If you click the pencil mark at the end of the clue, the clue will fade out. I use this to mark off clues I have already done so that I can more easily read the others.

24 hrs is enough

I think a keep time of 24 hrs for the puzzles is more than enough. On the cryptograms site, we only have the puzzles kept for 2 hrs. This is already way more. You can always just leave the page...

Question Bug Hypothesis

Stephen,

I have a hypothesis for what might have caused this - I'll let you decide if it's remotely viable or not.

Given that it is 2am Oct.1, and the avg. time for this player is over 7 hrs,...

trophies

You are correct, there are 60 trophies. They usually show up (on the cryptogram site, that is) sometime the next day.

I beg for a recent games list! I nearly messed up my success rate by clicking on the links at top :eek: (unintentionally - my fingers were moving faster than my head :p ). I was able to...

identical clues

I have noticed several puzzles recently where 1 clue is repeated in the clues list, usually in puzzles that have a large number of clues. I sort of shrugged it off because it doesn't make a...

difficulty level

I think ranking puzzles as to how difficult they are and awarding higher points for the more difficult puzzles in a good thing, but not based on the average time spent. Those of us who are faster...

Perhaps to help prevent the problem azzzz mentioned of players continuing to solve a puzzle while the timer is paused, the screen should be blacked out in some fashion. Other games with pause...

sideways words

I disagree. I just about went cross-eyed trying to read that vertically. I'd MUCH rather read the words sideways.

There are no minimum games to get on a score board. It's based on points. The high score contest list the top 100 of that month based on that month's accumulated points. You have to be in the top...

I would advocate that any such comments be visible only after the player has completed (or given up on) the puzzle. Getting warnings about confusing clues while working on the puzzle, to my way of...
