TEAM INFORMATION
Part of a team?

If you intend working with others on a particular contest, then please
take the time to read the following information before doing so:


REGISTERING TEAMS
At "ThePuzzleFiles", we accept that some people prefer to work as part of a team, and have no problem that. However, in order to try to make things a little fairer, we will ask that teams "register" before starting contests where this is required.

What constitutes a "team" ?
It is our view that two or more members working together is considered a team. This is regardless of whether: you race to the finish or take your time; it is for one contest or several; or "working together" comprises just helping each other or sharing answers.

Why register as a team ?
Once registered, the team name (and not the individual members) appears in the statisitics, together with the number of members in that team. Apart from this there is no other difference - everything else (including the information shown in your progress) is as if you were competing individually.

How to register a team ?
All you need to do is pm one of the admins with the contest name, team name, and list members. You may add new members, in the same way, at any time during the contest.

Are team members totally excluded from the statistics ?
No. Although the team name appears as a single entry, when hovering your mouse over it, a box will appear listing the individual team members. Furthermore, team members will be kept on their toes as, alongside each name, will also be shown the number of questions which each was first (within their team) to correctly answer.

Why specify a contest when registering the team ?
Not all contests will require that teams register, and members need to have the flexibility to decide who, if anyone, they work with on different contests. For these reasons, teams are set-up on a contest by contest basis.


TEAM FORUMS
If you wish to have a team forum (a private forum which only your team members have access to) for sharing ideas, methods and answers, then please let us know when registering the team and we will gladly set one up for you. One member will need to be nominated as the team moderator, and will be able to grant and remove access to the forum.


Please note: We reserve the right to register as a team any group of members who, based on the statistics, appear to be working together.
