Hi Sparkplug

Under progress, would it be possible to see who has already solved the puzzle that you are currently on (and those that you have solved).

It would be useful to know who you can PM without about a puzzle with giving anything away.

This is a good idea.

I shall certainly look into it.

A slightly different question:

So far, I've hit two dead ends which, luckily, I've both cleared up. However, the progress screen still shows the old, bad answer. I've tried re-inputting the answer, to no avail. Will it remain this way? If not, I won't have to keep my Word document.

It keep's only the first answer you enter.

There is a good reason for that... but I've lost it Very Happy

Yes - this was a question I had intended to ask myself. I would expect that the "correct" answer would be the one to appear in my Progress, but that is not the case.

Well, if you haven't learned by now, it pays to expect nothing on this site Evil

Maybe it is the correct answer and when you reach the next dead end it actually reveals a secret exit at the previous one.

At the bottom of the progress screen, where relevant, the number of people on and past your current puzzle are now shown.

Click on "show" to display a list of usernames. You can then click on a unsername to pm that person.

Please note: for this purpose your current puzzle is deemed to be the last puzzle in the progress list.

Very cool, SP.

All right, you 6 other people people stuck on "Sometimes"... why aren't you helping me get past it Laughing

It is very dark here. You have been eaten by a grue Sad

This is going to sound really stupid but in my head it is a perfectly reasonable question.

If I go to progress and click on the 'who is on the puzzle I am currently on' why don't I appear on the list?

I wondered who who be the first to ask that. Wink

I deliberately removed the person viewing the list on the basis that:
1. They would know they were on it; and
2. I had visions of people PM'ing themselves and, worse still, a few even replying to them Surprise

But, seriously, if people do find that disconcerting, it's easy enough to change.

Why do I think you were envisioning me? Embarassed

Bewitched, bothered and bewildered...
