What I think this site needs to improve on and how.

I think there should be at least 1 more forum subject.Theres lots of stuff that other people want to talk about but it isn't linked to the forum heading so we can't.But if there is at least 1 more subject we can talk a lot more.Also on the site there needs too be more games.I have already mentioned a battleship game but how about a game where you are a criminal and you try to break into a bank.You have to figure out the code like 1 2 3 7 4 56.But you have to answer hard math questions to get pieces of the code.Once you get the code you have to input it in then you get the money.You are allowed 3 mistakes.You can do it in a different cenario but I'm just thinking these up in my head.Thanks for reading this.

Re: What I think this site needs to improve on and how.

Good idea ... solve the puzzles and you gradually unlock the safe. But maybe it can be a little less "criminal" - maybe a game show, or it is a challenge set by an ancient relative or something ...

What sort of puzzles? Like 19 × 35 ? Or solve x+7=12 ? Or what shape has 5 sides ?

Thanks for liking the idea. Any hard problem.If you had different levels then you could decide if it id hard or not.Maybe you could give them options like measure,number,fractions.Lots of different things you can do.
