Multi-Sudoku №356585, butterfly says it is drоp x10, but after I finished it, it gave me 1100 points, saying it was drоp 11. I am not complaining, just that there could be some inconsistency in the drоp allocation.

What exactly could be the point of changing the expire time of first puzzle to 00:10 hours?

We all know that puzzles expire after 25 hours, meaning morning puzzle expires next morning at 9:55 AM, and evening puzzle expires at next evening at 21:55 PM.

Then why should this puzzle had to expire at 00:10 AM?

Actually, I was busy in work yesterday, so I had thought that I will join tournament and do the first puzzle today morning, but find that the puzzle has expired for no reason at 0:10 hours. Why so?

You mean we cannot rely on our memory of general trends of time at this site?
Do we have to read and memorize the start and expiry time of every individual puzzle?

You should have kept it simpler.

I was also unable to understand why it has to be 25 hours to begin with? Shouldn't a flat 24 hour time had been good enough for all interested players to attempt it wherever they could be all over the world?

And, then this problem of :55 minutes in time . Your site is global, members are players can be anywhere in the world, and it is already a big pain to convert time from Russia time to local time, but that can still be done if it is full hour at :00 minutes or at most half hour at :30 minutes, but when you further change the minutes that confuses people more than it solves things.

My humble suggestion:
1. Keep the start and ending time of all puzzles fixed, definitely in a same tournament, or same type of puzzle. don't change time for a single puzzle like above was changed to 0:10 for no obvious explanation.

2. reduce open time for a puzzle from 25 hours to 24 hours. Then each puzzle will have exactly same start and end time, but for AM PM change, and it will be easiest to remember.

3. keep all times used on this site at full hour or :00 minutes, or at most at half hour or :30 minutes. That will ease conversion across time zones.

4. this particular tournament runs for 5 days. there is no puzzle offered on Sats and Suns. This site is a fun site and we do have fun on weekends and holidays so we would love to play on Sats also. So no point making Sat an off day for this site. Make the puzzles run for 6 days, offering a total of 12 puzzles instead of 10. Then there will be no puzzle on Sunday, that will be result day, and next morning, Monday, next tournament starts.

Remember, previously your were offering 3 puzzles a day in this tournament, now only 2, though you have increased fee four times. So please consider to give us fun for one more day.

The end time of the round 0:10 turned out when all the participants of the tournament decided this round. Otherwise, the tour would have lasted 25 hours.

I believe the players did get stuck. After all, it's sudoku, the game is rarely easy. Maybe some players decided to take a break when solving the puzzle and then forgot to return to complete it. That's how I lost couple of tournaments :)

In all puzzles list pages, please give the names of the person who created the puzzle. The appears on the individual puzzle page when we go to play it, but it doesn't appear on the page that lists many puzzles. The person has spend his coins/ points to generate the puzzle and now all can play it, so I feel obliged to the persons creating puzzles. It will be good thank-you to them to display their names in the list of puzzled page.

This idea is already presented in Japanese crosswords. The name is indicated there. Perhaps this is the name of the real author who created the puzzle. The one who adds a puzzle, fishing it out of the depths of the site at the expense of a certain resource, is not chasing fame. I think so.

Эта идея уже представлена в японских кроссвордах. Там имя указывается. Возможно, это имя реального автора, создавшего головоломку. Тот же, кто добавляет головоломку, выуживая её из глубин сайта затратой некоего ресурса, не гонится за славой. Я так думаю.

In the new puzzle grading system introduced today, it is not becoming obvious that one has to sеlect TWICE, once between Like/ Dislike, and also between Easy/ Hard, only then the reward gets added.

One might just click a single thing as they are so near in a single row, without any demarcation that they are two separate sets, and thus one loose the reward even after solving a puzzle.

So, I guess that more clarity be added there. write it there to sеlect two things.

Today, fifth tournament of Sudoku had been cancelled in last two months. Only one tournament actually occurred in last two months.

It is because of the bad rules for this tournament that are keeping users away from participating.

Ever since Auto fill has been removed from tournaments, the time of 8 minutes-12 minutes for a sudoku puzzle has become too short that one cannot properly attend to a puzzle in 8 minutes and by that next puzzle is presented, and if the person continues the previous puzzle, he might finish that, but he has already lost valuable time for next puzzle, so he is doomed to loose.

Thus, participants are keeping away from it.

Sudoku is the original puzzle that started and popularized the game and that branched into various variants. It is sad to see the original game in such bad condition at this site, that bad rules have made it.

I had suggested to increase the time to double, but admins seems to have other ideas.

Also, the handicap thingy incorporated in this puzzle is also too restrictive, that a player not even playing or solving any single puzzle, stands to win the tournament solely on the basis of his huge handicap points. That is not proper spirit of game.

Now, even fee has been changed from coins to ticket and one has to buy that or crеate that in craft. If tickets is required, you should start giving such ticked as craft prize on solving other puzzles.

Several great games has been killed by the admins of this site by bad rules, or being too complex, and thus, even the tournaments have stopped altogether, like SudokuX and Windoku, but admins don't listen to suggestions and feedback.

suit yourself, it is your site, you made it, you are destroying it now.

diagonal lines have been added in Argyle Sudoku, that is useful.

However the lines are so light colored that when a cell, row, column, block is selected and is appearing in green or light brown, the lines fade out and are not visible.

So, it would be convenient for users if the color of diagonal light is made darker.

I am amazed by your "more than 10 hours have passed" ban.
Does that ban never expires?

It should expire if more than 15 hours have passed, or even more, say it should reset on every new day.

Currently, as I see it, if more than 5 hours have passed, that ban remains intact till the end of earth. If I come on next day, or next week, or next year, or after 10 years, even this it says "more than 10 hours have passed" so wait for 5 more hours.

That is ugly, and takes away the fun of free coins.

By the current system, you are actually making the users a servant on your web site that one come within 5-10 hours to click the collect prize, so that the ban of 5 hours doesn't lock it. That is not a good thinking.

I think you should not attach any tags to a "free coin". Just remove that 5 hour ban.

Or at least let that ban expire after some reasonable time. If I come after a week or after a year or after 10 years, and I want the fun to have free coins quickly, you are stealing away the fun part of it and making it a rigorous drill of 5 hours wait. In the hurried life of nowadays, no intelligent person has interest or time to wait for 5 hours.

Please give it a thought and make it a fun thing and not an unpaid duty on your site.

Feelwords politely shows button saying "reveal first/ second letter of each word."

I used that feature and solved a few of them.

However, then I came to know that it has been silently consuming my "tips", and soon all my tips were gone and I had to buy new ones from crafting.

I think that is not fair.

it didn't tell me that it is not a free feature, it didn't prompt me whether I am ready to spend one tip.

In other puzzles when we use the open to populate cells with candidates, it does ask whether we are ready to spend those many coins. I think that is fair enough.

So, it shouldn't silently consume any of our coins or inventory, it should ask us first.

And, if you think anyone can solve the Feelwords without those hints, it is almost impossible. So, I think it should be free feature to really make people interested in it.

Your puzzle selection algorithm has already killed "Weekly Sudoku-X", today it killed "Weekly Windoku" also.

The problem is too difficult puzzle. In both the above, puzzles were so complex that these were taking hours and even then some couldn't be cracked to finish. Thus, members avoided participating in tournaments.

Thus you didn't get even 4 participants and you had to cancel the tournaments, and then after cancelling several sudoku x you said people are not interested thus you stopped even organizing further sudoku x. Seems you will soon stop organizing further windokus also.

But the problem is selection of puzzles. These are difficult, leaving with various possible candidates in each cell, and it is not humanly possible to try with all next steps mentally. Thus members are disheartened and giving up.

We come here for fun, not for a rigorous drill. Often we don't have 2-3 hours to spare to solve a single puzzle, a puzzle should take 10-15 minutes.

There should be obvious next steps. following the rules of a type of puzzles,
There should be a single solution to each puzzle.
There should be maximum 1-2 levels of mental iteration among possible candidates so that just following the basic rules with each candidate leads to the final digit.

Please give easier puzzles and then see how many people will jump to join.

Of course you can organize two tournaments for each type - one having for easy puzzles for entry level members, one having real tough ones for veterans.

Please don't stop tournaments. That is unique gift of this site that keeps this site alive. change your puzzle selection to populate tournaments with many members.

on daily puzzles page, one kind of puzzle is scattered all over many pages, we have to scan though all pages, reading each puzzle name to find ones we like.

Can we have daily puzzles, sorted by puzzle type, puzzle number, so that one kind of puzzles come together next to next. Say all Windokus will appear side by side, all killer will appear next to next. Then we don't have to sift through all pages to find whether there are more puzzles of that type on other pages?

on daily puzzles page, the option of "Puzzles" selection doesn't stick.

meaning, say, we click "puzzles" and sеlect one kind of puzzles, then we click search.

but after the page refreshes after searching, what we had selected in "puzzles" has gone, and we have to go through long process of selecting the type of puzzle again.

That is confusion.

Actually, that "Puzzles" is confusing in itself, as it acts like a button, but it is actually a drоp down menu. I think it will be better to have it as drоp down menu, the way we can sеlect from drоp down menu in multi-sudoku. That way at least the type of puzzle name is visible so we know what is showing.

In puzzles button as it is at present, we don't get to know what we have selected under that button, as that is hidden.

So, please make that "Puzzles" link a drоp down menu as in mutli-sudoku "type"

And please make our selection stick after page refreshing, after searching.

Actually, then you can put the same coding for every types of different puzzle, and the current type of puzzle is visible there, and even if we sеlect a different of puzzle from drоp down menu, we go to that type puzzle "section".

That standardization will be helpful to users as we get to see the same page design/ options on all pages, and it will reduce your coding that you have to maintain only one kind of page.

on crafting, some pages say "crеate an item" and some pages say "Activate", and actually both do the same thing.

It is confusing. Why use different vocabulary for the same thing. Either use "activate" for all, or use "create" for all.

The format of pages on "activate" and "create" is also different. That is also confusing.

Please use some standardization of the website pages. It will help you also that you now have to make changes in two coding of pages, but your will have to change only one page after standardization.

Can we get an option to "reverse engineer" :-) an inventory item?

meaning, can we break down an item in our inventory to get the parts that are used in its creation?

say we have magic potion in 5 number, but have no blue potion or red potion, as I have consumed all,
And I urgently need some blue or red potion for some other creation.

So it will help if I can break down magic potion, to get all its components, that will give us 2 blue potion and 2 red potion.

It will make it crafting exercise more interesting and more creative.

Currently, one-way creation is a limitation on our imagination and sudoku is really all about developing our mind to various possibility and combinations.

Point taken.

You are right that chemical reactions are irreversible, though physical reactions can revert.

hey dear, it is a game site, we are not mixing physical real things to make a reversible or irreversible change.

I was thinking as Sudokus are all about training the mind about various permutations and combinations, and make us see through missing things, this "revert" option will add to that training. It will be more fun.

Для игрового сайта, раз уж на этом делается акцент, необратимые превращения имеют большее преимущество, так как заставляют решать дополнительное количество головоломок для достижения необходимых предметов с дополнительным показом рекламы.

Я так понимаю, что это Вы предлагаете, чтобы преодолеть затруднения, связанные с отсутствием UNDO создания лишних предметов. Я не думаю, что такое обратное разложение вызовет энтузиазм у Игроков и Support. Хотя кто знает...

Please consider giving an option of "Revert" or "Undo" on crafting pages, after Creating an item or activating an item.

Actually it is confusing that some items have option of 2x 3x 4x etc. when creating. meaning they are creating as many time even on a single "creation", But we fail to notice that part, and we click to crеate to find that we have created on excess, thus utilizing our inventory in access.

say, containers are created x2. I had 2 so I needed 3 for magic potion, but I failed to notice "2" and clicked to crеate 4, and I got double, 8, now I need only 5, and I have got 10 that I don't need. So I need to cancel this creation, to recrеate with required number.

In such case, please give UNDO option so that we can cancel the last creation and recrеate in required number only.

Я думаю, что можно в spin контроле задавать инкремент, соответствующий количеству создаваемых изделий на один клик на + или -. Или внятно писать общее количество создаваемых изделий, что более предпочтительнее. Или в невразумительном сообщении "Вы уверены?" писать в чём Игрок должен быть уверен, например, "Вы уверены ,что хотите создать 8 предметов?"
