Please no chit-chat.
I would not want to limit anyone about ANY topic. What interests one person is going to be deathly dull for another. Just because I don't follow one topic, doesn't mean it should be stopped for everyone else.
Please don't take my lack of knowledge (and also a limited time to play too many games at once) as an indication of what everyone feels. Just because my understanding of Canadian culture is limited to Mike Myers and Maple trees, should not force you to stop posting questions about Canada.
BTW - the only reason I mentioned internet searches in my previous post was not to try and make you allow them, but it was to explain why I personally was not answering. How a puzzle should be run is down to the individual teaser master concerned - including when internet searches are to be allowed. I guess I did not make that point clear in my last post - sorry!
Stevie, it hasn't just been you or I wouldn't have moved it to a more general area. I would have said "yup, that isn't his interest, no problem, tks for explaining."
I've heard the Canadian content from a couple others and someone else stated similar to your comments on the hockey.
I totally agree that subjects should remain broad as the site is international, and based in California. In my opinion that is why I enjoy the games - I learn things and have fun at the same time.
I appreciate that you clarified what you meant and I appreciate even more that you took the time to respond both times ... and that you popped into the site and guessed too.
I am feeling discouraged though and that's the reason I'm "snappy." I'd have no problem with an internet search if there had been attempts after the hints were out - which there weren't.
In my eyes, there were a few different questions that could have been asked - one was asked, which I saw as a typical answer for the question. It was wrong but it allowed me to add in a hint. ~shrug~ So I just felt that a net search wasn't warrented yet. If people had asked a few more questions and still didn't get there -I'd have no problem.
And I do understand what you were trying to say about that now, tks again for clarification.
I've noticed other puzzles running slower, so was wondering if its site-wide ('tis the season and MP time) or was it just this particular puzzle ... as we've had many stalls and lags in the past with this game (and not just on my puzzles either).
Anyhow, I'll leave it at that. I'm going to be getting busy myself so won't be around as much either .... so maybe others are also in the same boat and it'll pick up in the new year.
Tks for your ear and time Stevie. :)
Personally, I don't play USH that much because it happens a lot to me that I have no idea what the clues are about. And besides that, I find it a difficult puzzle to make
Mainly, I guess the only suggestion I can give is the same things Stevie said: Get (yet) another clue or allow internet searches. I can understand your frustrations, Sass. You don't wanna give more help if there have hardly been guesses. Someimtes they're just lazy ;o)
But sometimes there's no guesses because players still don't see it after that hint.
Certainly all topics are allowed. But some players can more easily see the link between the clues and the topic because they're more familiar with it.
Maybe regulars on this game want to give their input? :o)
Sassi that's why I don't do any of these puzzles because the things I know about are not allowed. I will go look at your puzzled and see if I can get it moving. USH use to be one of the puzzles I plated regularly.
Ooops guess I should have looked to see it was solved or read the posts better.
Chrebet, I'm curious: What is it that you know that isn't allowed as a puzzle? As far as I'm concerned, so long as it is suitable for a family site, it is fair game
Hang on, I hope I haven't just answered my question.... ;-)
