Hello Sploofusers!
In 2009, we launched the exciting Platinum Community Word Puzzle program!

It's something we dreamed up for fun and as a way to get to know each other better. The program is ongoing, and we'll give you new themes periodically. No prizes are involved.

IMPORTANT UPDATE: The 10 Things About Me theme has been retired, so we're no longer accepting submissions on this theme. Thank you for your participation!


Our first theme, "10 Things About Me," is ongoing since it's a way for Platinums to introduce themselves to the community. If you've never written a word puzzle before, it's a great way to get started!

This particular theme works as follows: All authors use the same set of hints without modification. All you have to do is write 10 phrases.

Here are your clues:
A like
A dislike
An early memory
A fear
A perfect moment
An embarrassing moment
Ack! Never again!
If I won $1,000,000
Place I'd like to visit
My first job

As usual, you will need to include your user name in the title. Titles are limited to 30 characters. The theme itself is 18 characters. If you have a long user name, you may need to abbreviate it. Examples:

10 Things About USER52
USER52's 10 Things About Me

How do you submit your word puzzle? Just like you always do -- via the PM link to your word puzzle editor. If you are a Platinum member and do not yet have a WP editor, please submit a support ticket, and one will be assigned to you. To submit a support ticket, just click on the "Help" link at the top of your screen.

If you need help with your phrases, be sure to consult the Revised Guide to Word Puzzle Authoring in Hotwire:

Your word puzzle editor is also available to help you.

Thank you, have fun writing and we look forward to your submissions!

You may submit your 10 Things About Me word puzzle to your editor whenever you have it finished.

Deadline: There is no deadline. The "10 Things About Me" theme is ongoing, as a way for new Platinums to introduce themselves to the community. It's also a way for veteran Platinums who've never written a word puzzle before to take the plunge! We've no doubt that everyone will enjoy learning more about you!

Clues: Please use the clues that we provided without modification. Thanks!

Update on this:

This theme is still ongoing. One "10 Things About Me" WP per Platinum member. However, we have had many wonderful other types of "10 Things" word puzzles. You can write as many of them as you like, i.e. 10 Things About Famous Person, Famous Band, Fictional Character, etc.

Thank you all for your contributions!

UPDATE: The 10 Things theme has been retired, so we're no longer running WPs on this theme. Thanks!
