I totally agree. solving with or without aids are two different games. This is also why I hesitated a lot before I sent the previous post about computer aids. They change the nature of a puzzle. I don’t know if solutions with aids deserve your initial grand prize or not. But in either way, whenever a solution is very long, my feeling is basically the same: I start to question the meaning of doing it.

Anyway, thank you for making these features. Having the option to use aids is definitely better than not having it.
