I'm just curious if the community tends to have an rules, written or unwritten, regarding assisance during WordPuzzles. A few of them lend themselves to having access to some notes beforehand (e.g., the recent Oscar Winner puzzles), and in others, it is possible that one can do an online search and find answers once the lengths of words and/or a few letters are found.

I'm just curious if around here such behavior is condoned, tolerated, frowned upon, ot total anathema.

I believe it's perfectly acceptable to do some research beforehand, especially for those quizzes of which you think you'll have little knowledge. That's just logical.

Of course, the way you play is up to you but I think that the general feeling is that searching for answers online while in the midst of doing a puzzle is frowned upon.

Think of this as Wheel of Fortune, only they give you hints to the categories before hand. Vanna would slap you if you brought cheat notes or excused yourself to check the encyclopedia.

I have on very rare occasion needed to resort to a spelling search for individual words that I can never remember how to spell (Dr. Jeckyl? Dr. Jekkyl? Dr. Jekyll?) but this is an extremely rare thing.

Again, how you play is up to you but I hear that if people think you're "cheating", you'll find yourself with an online wedgie.

I don't consider researching a topic before you do a WordPuzzle cheating, but some people do. Although, if you do too good on the WordPuzzles, some people accuse you of cheating. So, just be prepared that if you come across a puzzle that happens to be on a topic that youre an expert at, if you solve the puzzle without guessing any letters, you will automatically be considered a cheater to some people.

I don't think prior research is cheating, but keeping notes or a list to refer to while playing would be crossing the line.

I don't see anything wrong with researching, I never do....probably cause I'm too lazy...but seeing if I know the information without searching is the excuse I use.
