We have just made a few changes to the underlying software for the site. For the time being, the effect for everyone using the site is intended to be precisely zero. This is because the changes are in preparation for an upcoming contest (more on that in a moment). However the changes we have made are relatively significant, so potentially there could be some inadvertent side effects. Therefore, if you spot anything out of the ordinary then please do either post here or PM one of the site admin (me, The Hirsute One, SparkPlug or xyphic). We're hoping though that you won't need to.
With regards to the upcoming contest, this will be a departure from the normal linear-type contest that you see at Puzzletome: both the 'work your way straight through' sequential types and the more open Festive Fun types. Instead expect something more akin to Labyrinth or (for those that remember it) Timehunt. This latter was in actual fact the inspiration behind the contest, and we hope you will enjoy it.
Is sloppiness in speech caused by ignorance or apathy?
I don't know and I don't care!
