Ah yes, thanks Roice.
I agree that the MT page is unwieldy. (More than 10 pages for its table
of contents alone!) That’s a direct result of your success for creating
600 amazing new puzzles! I would love to see someone break that into
several new pages, one for each top-level puzzle type that MT supports.
I also think that it is begging for some screen shots. I added one for
the edge turning 4-color {6,6}
Nan and now Ed have solved. I hope that list members will add more.
Please consider adding a screen shot for each puzzle solution that you
enter that doesn’t already have one. It sure will look nice once most
puzzles have pictures.
