Puzzles

Since you are working on the puzzles section of the site, will you be accepting any puzzles submitted by anybody on the board?

Re: Puzzles

But before I start....can I ask something first? Do you accept puzzles like the sort of when you're asked a question and you need to find a way around it -  like the man with the chicken, corn and fox?

Re: Puzzles

Yep, because figuring out those sort of puzzles needs logical thinking.

So long as there is a solution available somewhere (just a matter of honor that every puzzle has to be solvable!)

Re: Puzzles

Can you do private messages on this board? I mean, if I'm sending in a puzlle, I don't want anyone else to see it since it wouldn't be fair if someone else sees it and then it will be spoiled.

Re: Puzzles

Post them into the "Members Only" section, and I can then take a copy of the solution and then delete it off the forum.

Hey, Rora, you should use an Avatar - find a small image that you want to appear next to your name (up to 60x60 pixel) and upload it from your Profile under Personality.

Yes, I am aware of that. I have loads of pictures but I can't find one small enough.

Re: Puzzles

Not really. I mean, everyone does the same thing there, don't they? See the palace, Downing street, blah blah blah. Though I have to say that the best bit was trafalgar square.

Re: Puzzles

Surely! That one I gave you before - I must say it was the best one, so try not to expect something as good as that.

Re: Puzzles

Pft. You may have a butterfly. But, my Avatar's a Ferret. Fearness!


Boy let me tell you what:
I bet you didn't know it, but I'm a fiddle player too.
And if you'd care to take a dare, I'll make a bet with you.

Re: Puzzles

I'm doing good! Been on holiday to math, wasn't interesting. Good cheese, but nothing too bad. How's life with you then?

So math DOES exist, then ... I though it was just a fantasy land.

Re: Puzzles

Yes! It does! It's not really that great though. It's got a nice Fish and Chips shop. Hm.. Curry Sauce.

Re: Puzzles

You may have a ferret, Zach. However, the elegant, gallant butterfly will always outshine you.
