I can't wait to see the winners - personally I am rooting for the river cruise one - whoever did that one - three cheers to you - there were lots of good ones but that was my favorite.

After doing my "Fours" since we started the Platinum writing puzzles, I felt it necessary to write something else for fairness. I did the recent puzzles on African American Greats. It had to be edited quite a bit because I wrote too much. I still don't know why my clues were changed ?

I thought the African American Greats puzzle was also outstanding - and I liked the clues - I gave that puzzle a good score too.

African American Firsts was my fave. But I gave almost all a 4. That's why I think maybe in the future we might have more numbers to choose from, like 1-10. That would really help me in voting more accurately. Glad I'm not one who has to tally the votes. I'd think with only 1-4 to choose from, there'd be just a huge tie. But, I guess we'll find out soon. Congrats to everyone who authored a WP. Hope we do this often.

I agree with a slightly expanded scale - even 1 to 5 - I had several 2.5s.

Here is the list of quizzes

I've put in my wild-ass guesses (based on nothing more than seat of the
pants instinct in some cases and in other cases on final rankings). Feel
free to add your own/laugh at my ridiculous suggestions!

My name does not appear here. but I might have done one of these quizzes -
you never know! If someone guesses mine I'll admit to it of course...In some
cases I have listed more than one possibility, in some cases a member
appears more than once. Please join in if you know better than me!

OK I'll fess up - Thanksgiving Music was mine - it ended up being one of the early ones and quite frankly I would have given myself a lousy score - I actually had planned on the same title but drastically changing it had it not shown up so early.

Tuzilla - does that mean you didi the river one (upstream?). It was my favorite

Ours was the presidential campaign slogans. We knew it wouldn't do well because it was so Googleable but thought it appropriate because our editor agreed to put it out on election day.

All in all, grand fun and would love to see it done again.

I have no clue who wrote which puzzle.. the only differentiating tell was the spelling.. I knew when a non American wrote a puzzle when the letter "u" was used lol (i.e. neighbour, colour, etc.)

Ok if we can discuss puzzle I'd like to vent on the editor who selected as one of his ten questions in this am's review of puzzles the one with TEN (count them!!) rivers. Now given that each question has only a 50% chance of having been seen by the solver.... why deliberately pose a question where you know whoever gets to try to solve it will have five unknown words in it?

Lists of five are bad enough; lists of ten? Spare me!

I agree Barry - I was really irritated with the all 10 question - I am sure those high finishers didn't have that one - I had a good memory of most of them and was doing very well until I got to that one.

On another note - I'm confused by what you said here?

I've put in my wild-ass guesses (based on nothing more than seat of the
pants instinct in some cases and in other cases on final rankings).

Where are the final rankings? I didn't see them - can you point them out to me?

BTW - I did write a puzzle but not the one Garrybl guessed I wrote

Barry - Thanks for thinking that I did that really good WP, but that one wasn't mine. I did have one there, but it doesn't seem clear if we are allowed to admit to ours yet. I just know that I didn't make the top 10, that's for sure!

Barry, I thought you did the Game Talk puzzle, with the only Bridge reference I came across. And you have at least two wrong guesses...I didn't do the one you assigned to me, but I did do one you attributed to another. That may make three, because you assigned mine to someone who surely has one of his/her own. Unless he/she did the one you gave to me...

My Personal Top 5 (in no particular order) - I enjoyed the majority of the puzzles so it was hard to pare it down - only really had issues with a few of them -- and actually the only one the is in order is Gone Phishing - I SHOULD have done that one - kudos - hope everyone paid attention - it was educational - and accurate information to store away

I'd like a bigger scale, too. While I liked most of the puzzles, there were a number with factual errors in them, which I marked down one level. Mostly, I gave out threes.

BTW, I didn't write Ode To A Toilet, I thought that might have been Oogie

The one I wrote was so far from the "Real Me" that no-one has guessed that I wrote it!

However, I am REALLY curious as to who wrote what though, and look forward to a published list!!
