Something slightly different this time, so please read carefully.

As promised elsewhere, the cream of Contests 1 and 2 is to reappear in a new form, as the topic name suggests under the name Revisited. It must be stressed that there are no new puzzles in this 'contest'. As such, all puzzlers who previously completed both Contests 1 and 2 will be ineligible to contribute to the statistics. This will give an opportunity to those who did not complete them to grab a bit of glory, as well as the chance to bypass some of the (shall we say) less well constructed puzzles to get to the really good ones towards the end. It also gives those who did complete them the opportunity to reminisce nostalgically over some interesting (and at the time original) ideas, as we did when we were setting this up. Smile

Revisited will go live on Easter Monday to tie in with the resurrection theme at 8:00am BST (7:00am GMT).

Stretham

I'm looking forward to revisiting the snail trail, my most favourite riddles. I wonder if I can solve them again?FC

Something is obviously wrong, which we'll look at, but temporarily click on the 'dummy' link and you should be able to continue.

Doesn't work for me either...

No dummy link.
Introduction sends me back to the list of contests.

Wow, a big thank you for all your efforts  Thumbs up  Thumbs up  Thumbs up

I hope I have a good memory, cause when I started the old contests I didn't made notes yet  Sad , so I need to rely totally on my memory  Very Happy. And if that fails and rethinking as well, we still have a forum.  Angelic

All

Apologies since (as you can no doubt see from a couple of the posts above) we have an issue with users who have previously completed both Contests 1 and 2. We are currently working on a fix for this and will post as soon as it is in place.

I *hope* I've fixed the problem. Can anyone who has tried and failed to get in before give it a go please?

Apologies as I am just about to go out, so if it hasn't worked you may have to wait a short while before any further issues get fixed.

Contest appears to be working for me too. If there is a forum for this, however, I cannot yet see it.
