Tomorrow we have two puzzles running to test the voting system out. They are real word puzzles, and we want you to vote on them, but they won't count as entries in the contest.

We will be watching to make sure everything works, so we can iron out any glitches that might pop up before the actual contest begins.

All official contest puzzles have titles that begin with "C:" (short for Contest without taking up too much space).


All Gold and Platinum members are eligible to vote. If you're a Free member, we invite you to upgrade, so you can join in the fun and have the opportunity to win a voting prize! Everyone who votes for 90-100% of the contest word puzzles is a Dedicated Voter and will earn one wager token!

To vote on a particular Word Puzzle, send a PM to Wordpuzzle with the name of the puzzle as the subject and your rating score in the text. One vote per person per puzzle.

Here's the link -

Each time you vote, please remember to change the subject line of your message to the name of the puzzle you're voting for. Please be as honest as you can when voting.

The scale for voting is as follows:

5 - Loved it!
4 - Very enjoyable
3 - Fairly entertaining
2 - OK, but could be more fun
1 - Not my cup of tea

Please take a moment to vote on all the puzzles you take, so we can make this contest a success.

Thank you and have fun!

If you are having trouble finding the link to Wordpuzzle in order to vote, please go to the contest FAQ thread in Hotwire, where the link is posted twice. I just bumped that thread to the top, and it won't get buried like some threads do here.

That thread is here:

Also, if you would like Wordpuzzle to send you a PM link for convenient voting, please post that request here in this thread, and Wordpuzzle will send you a PM.

So, just because I'm going on holiday tomorrow I'm discriminated against: won't get near a computer to reach 90% voting.

Ah well, at least I'm going away

Try this for a fast way to vote if you've not been sent a pm.
Go to the bottom of your screen where you see the list of online players. say'garrybl'
Click on one and change the top line of your screen -- the address -- to replace the player name 'garrybl' with 'wordpuzzle'

I sure wish we could keep copies of sent PMs. I keep forgetting whether I PMed my vote for a specific WP. I know it must seem easy to keep track of it, but I'm finding in the busy-ness of life sometimes I jump in quickly and take the WP and then have to run and do something else.

Just PM Wordpuzzle, and send provisional votes in case you haven't already. Since we're awarding tokens to regular voters, we are keeping close track of who votes for what, and I'm sure the editors wouldn't mind clarifying what you've voted on.

That's very kind of you guys. I just hate wasting your time - you have enough on your sploofus plate without having to fill in for my lack of diligence. I'll just make sure I do better for these last ones.

(But an optional saved "sent" feature would be nice.)
