Now the full answer lists are not being published anymore (with the hope that an archive of old ones will be made available to take), can I ask for a slight change to the 'current' WP, ie the active one, each time?

All the other games on this site - WRs, WMs and quizzes - give a list of the correct answers at the end of the game, except WPs. Could we have a list of the correct answers (for all ten, of course) on the final page for this one too?

Say below the note of your points/time etc and above the list of current leaders? It's fixed information, not dynamic, so it shouldn't be difficult to program it in (I hope) ...

That would bring it in line with the other games, allow those who have taken the puzzle to see all the answers and still keep the information hidden from those who haven't taken that particular puzzle yet.

Pretty please?!!

Anyone else think this is a good idea?

Beryl, I've been waiting for one of the editors to answer your request, but no luck.

It's a great idea......I second your request.

That's a matter of programming, not a prerogative of the editors, and therefore, Justin would have to be the one to take action on it. However, we will attempt to make sure he sees your request.

Thanks, Sploofernatural! That's all we could ask!

Sorry I came in late on this one.

Although I like this idea very much, it conflicts with a new feature which is set to be released very soon: We are going to release ALL previous WordPuzzles in a new area of the site. This way, you can take any WordPuzzles that you may have missed. Releasing all possible answers to the current WordPuzzle poses certain problems with this new feature.

I should probably mention, since it will certainly be asked, the scoring policy for taking an "archived" WordPuzzle.

It is simple: You will not receive ANY points for taking an archived puzzle. You will, however, be able to see where you would have ranked with the players that took the puzzle when it was live. If you are looking to increase your all-time score and monthly WordPuzzle score you must take the "live" puzzle.

I hope that this all makes sense.

Hi Justin, that's great! Look forward to seeing it!

It only leaves one question, though - is there going to be *any* way to find out the full list of answers?! Other than take the puzzle over and over again and until you've seen all the possible combinations?!

Since the archived puzzles are not going to earn you any points at all, could you not just have a button to click on that would show the answers?

After all, anyone who genuinely wants to know how they would have done will just take it without looking first; and since there are no points, so what if someone does take it after checking the answers!

Otherwise those of us who want to know will never be able to find out what the five we didn't get were!

Since the archived quizzes won't gain anyone any points, perhaps they can be set up to include all ten items.

Seems to me that if one were to get the answers to all ten puzzles, it would aid and abet any collusion that may or may not be going on. And honestly, haven't we all heard enough on that subject?

My two cents,

Forgot to add, if such a 'button' were to be added, it should only be available on the archived list of the past twenty or so puzzles, not an auto pop-up when you finish the puzzle.

Do like the idea of the reduced point system though. At least me get something for my week at the ocean without access, besides sunburn.
