Account deletions
Due to overwhelming quantities of spam users, I have deleted most accounts which had never posted. I attempted to filter these manually to preserve accounts that looked 'real', but if I have removed your account in error I apologise. Please just create a new account. There are now additional sign-up verifications to prevent a recurrence of this problem.
 
Posting rules
  • Please do not post solutions to puzzles, but rather post hints as appropriate in response to queries
  • Type [spoiler] ... [/spoiler] around the outside of any hints so they can't be read by accident - e.g. [spoiler]have you tried looking at the corner of the page?[/spoiler]
