Default Wording clarification

Puzzle #22423622 (about movies) has a number of places where it says, " has x nominations more nominations than...." I believe that would be clearer if it said, "has x more nominations than...."

Default Bug in Puzzle #22508095

I just completed Puzzle #22508095. One clue is that Lilly paid less than the person from Sun City. I got mistakes and wrong submission because Lilly paid more than the person from Sun City.

Hi Buff -

Clue #9 in that puzzle reads: "Lily Little spent more than the person who lives in Sun City." And that seems to correlate correctly with the answers for that puzzle.

Prices Attendees Gifts Towns
$400 Mitch Mayo laptop Sun City
$425 Lily Little juicer Fruitland
$450 Ned Norris toaster Decatur City
$475 Pam Powell planter Twin Peaks
$500 Jack Jordan blu-ray player Clovis

Puzzle #22477644 (bookmobiles) has an issue similar to the one from the OP. There are several clues that use "... x books more books than..."construct. This particular one had the following clues:
7. The ice cream truck has 100 books more books than the bookmobile Patsy drives.
10. "Tiny Tomes" has 50 books more books than the vehicle Patsy drives.
11. The mobile library Gene drives has 150 books more books than the Greyhound bus.

There's a typo in a puzzle description: "A 20-year reuinion took place ...". "reuinion" is spelled wrong.

In that puzzle, there is a grammar problem in a clue: "Zachary received 14 votes more votes than Omar."

As someone who juggles, the puzzle regarding juggling objects really bothers me. Jugglers commonly use "clubs" not "bowling pins".

Technically, bowling pins can be juggled, just as technically, almost any physical object can be juggled. But bowling pins are never used, because they are quite difficult (far more difficult than clubs) and look quite unimpressive.

It also slightly bothers me that rings and torches are not included as options, as they tend to be among the most fun things to juggle.

In a manatee puzzle, there is this clue: "The Daily Ray saw 1 more manatees than the vessel that went to Hollow Hole."

"manatees" should be singular in this case.
