I haven't seen this mentioned before so I'll ask the question:

would it be acceptable for Sploofus to have a "guest" editor to write a word puzzle, say once a week? For members that would care to write one that is. The current editors are doing a great job and the WPs are always a pleasure but I for one, would love to write one and I'm wondering if this is a possibility?

That has been mentioned asked before in some thread. Good luck in finding it. As I recall there was some input from folks but no official answer-could be wrong-Linda

This has been debated among the editors a few times: there is a favoring trend towards the idea. Perhaps in the future it may be possible?

I recall a similar discussion, and I think there are a lot of people who love doing WPs that would also like to author some.

I think it would be nice, one day, to have Word Puzzles as a type of game members could author, like quizzes!

Some scaled-down version - WordPuzzlets? – with only five puzzles that everyone gets, shorter game board, and a scoring system more comparable to quizzes (again, scaled down to hundreds versus thousands of points, no bonus, etc.)...

Wait … is Ker-Blunk going to be something like this???

All we really know about Ker-blunk at this point, is that it will be some type of fill-in-the-blank type puzzle or word game. We are waiting for it, just as you are.

Thank you for the quick response- I am happy it is being considered!

I think it might be a fun incentive to allow the WP winner for the month choose the theme of one of the next month's upcoming puzzles.

All good ideas! Hopefully they can be worked into the system. We certainly have plenty of good quiz authors that an occasional WP authoring would be very rewarding as well for all who inhabit the island.

I would enjoy doing a word puzzle
