  • April 2021 Updates

    Hi everyone -

    Another good-sized puzzle update is incoming over the next 1-2 weeks - roughly 8,000 brand new puzzles and 10,000 new clues. I've also been going through all puzzle comments and working through all of your suggested fixes and error alerts. Just about 600 left on that front before I'm fully caught up. Thank you as always for your feedback via the comments form - it has been, and continues to be, an enormous help in keeping these puzzles as streamlined and as accurate as possible.

    I will post again here once the puzzles are officially live.

    Thanks again,
    Stephen

    Thanks for all your hard work. As one of many who really enjoys this, I think you deserve a lot of credit. I hope you are addressing my pet peeve - the multitude of clues that contain negative terms for mental illness ("nuts ... crazy ... loony", etc.). As a psychologist, I know that people are hurt by these words. Thanks again.

      jugl11, I didn't realize that someone else was also concerned about the negative terms for mental illness. I haven't seen any in these Acrostics for quite a while. I am a retired professional Social Worker, which is why it bothered me. Stephen, I also appreciate your hard work and patience, which is why I joined.

        Please keep sending in comments as and when you find them - I've removed quite a few problematic terms and will continue to do so where merited.

        The first 2,600 new puzzles have gone live this morning. Should have the rest up by April 9th.

        * There was an initial bug where keys and quotes (on the game over page) weren't displaying properly for new puzzles. This should now be fixed.

            Thank you so much, Stephen! All your effort is greatly appreciated.
            My mind boggles at how much work must be involved in setting up that number of puzzles and clues.
            Big thanks.
