I really enjoyed it Didn't know what a sniglet was either, but I googled the term before I started, which made it quite a bit easier. Now, if I could only proof read

I think it would have worked better with the snigword as the clue part. Too many times I was just guessing letters to figure out what arbitrary string had been used.

Would've been totally googlable then. Having all of Rich Hall's books wouldn't have been as much of an advantage.

Nope. There's thousands of them. They're worded a lot differently in the books but the idea is there.

Oh, I know there were thousands. I've even concocted one or two for private use. I just had no idea about THOSE ones.

I actually use chipfault sometimes. I like to scoop ice cream with potato chips, and you really find out where your faults are.

just a general point; enjoyed the puzzle but would have preferred to see some more original/less googleable words or phrases.
My instincts are that one could rephrase what is on the web to make it less easy to backtrack? or is that an unreasonable request?

Suzannec I think you did great - Your clues were good, and people had to solve a certain number of letters even they were going to google - be proud of yourself.

Boy Scout motto - and Girl Scout motto too?
Sploofus motto for me-

Be prepared!

I was aware of "sniglets" , but to be sure of the exact definition, googled and got reminded about Rich Hall's creation [Saturday Night Live].
It made the puzzle more sensible in trying to figure the "traps".
