To make number puzzles like Sudoku family and multi-sudoku more difficult, you can consider removing the "auto-remove digits from that row-column-block" option.

The player should remove each digit manually, this way the puzzle will become more challenging and will require more effort and concentration on part of the player.

This change can be considered only for tournaments puzzles. For non-tournament puzzles, auto-remove may continue as a setting option.

Автоудаление ничего особо не меняет, оно лишь облегчает ручное удаление кандидатов. Которым все и так занимались, но руками. Зато теперь появился шанс у игроков, не полагающихся на физические способности, что я считаю только плюс. Если реально усложнять судоку в турнирах - это надо запретить там простановку кандидатов полностью, что я и так уже предлагал в 2021, но поднялась такая волна недовольства, что это надолго не прижилось. К сожалению - 99% игроков сайта без этой опции судоку решать нормально не умеют, а как правило, при изменениях учитывается большинство.

Thanks for promptly modifying the tips/ number entering system in multi-sudoku. New system is far better and convenient and is acceptable.

However, We still have to move mouse to the tip-digit toggle button each time and come back to our cell, that is a distraction and wastage of time and breaks concentration.

You can consider assigning a keyboard shortcut to that tip-digit toggle button, so that kids can click the button with mouse, whereas seasoned players can use that keyboard shortcut to toggle, without needing to take mouse back and forth to that button.

Most sites use SPACE key to toggle between tips-digit mode. Please consider assigning SPACE key to toggle between tips-digit mode.

As early as not even 6 months ago, the site was taking 500 or 1000 point tournament fee and was offering 3 puzzles per day, 15 puzzle per weekly tournament.
Now there are 8 puzzles only, and fees is up 60-30 times to 30000 points.
Fees you can decide but reducing the number of puzzles in not acceptable by us killer sudoku fans.
Remember, at that time, I had written to you that 3 puzzles a day becomes too much time for us working people, so giving 2 per day would suffice. That you had accepted.
Please reinstate to 10 puzzles, and previous timing of 25 hours for each puzzle,

The duration of rounds in weekly tournaments has been increased at the request of the players.
You do not have to play right away, the tour is available for several days. Given the increased number of tournaments, 8 is, in our opinion, the optimal number of tours.
If puzzles in tournaments are not enough for you, you can simply solve them in the catalog.
If the competitive moment is important to you, then use the duel mode. It is unlikely that the issue of the size of the contribution is very important for someone, but we will reduce its size in subsequent tournaments. In any case, they all go to prizes for the participants.

What have you done in multi-sudoku? I am not able to enter notes in any cell just by pressing multiple numbers. That was how it was done across the years. We learn that, practice that, get that in a habit and you change the method. That is not good.

Putting notes by clicking or tapping buttons is for kids. seasoned players find it convenient to type numbers directly. So much mouse movement between the cells and digit buttons wastes time and efforts.

Also, there is no keyboard shortcut like pressing control-digit to put notes, as is in killer and some other puzzles. That is also problematic, but better that tapping/ clicking the buttons.

Please bring back previous method of directly typing notes, instead of taping/ clicking buttons.

Demarcation between coins and item have been removed recently, and now coin as well as item is presented in the puzzle solving rewards and the user can choose any of them, I like that.

I suggest on this page also, do give the option of coin prize and item prize, and let the user choose one of them at a time.

Often, prizes offered in this page is such item that is already in abundance with the user, like ore, water that all puzzle rewards mostly give. So waiting for 20 hours to get one Water is a disappointment. In such a case, a user might prefer to choose the cash prize.

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 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.

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.
