WHO WANTS TO WRITE A WORD PUZZLE?

Here is a perk for all of you Platinum Members with the itch to write.

This is your chance to be popular, amaze your friends, thrill your family, and incur the wrath of the membership which was formerly reserved for us editors.

We are going to give all of you a chance to author Word Puzzles.

At this time, all we are doing is collecting names of those of you who are interested in taking a crack at writing one.

Here is everything you need to do at this time: Answer this message by simply posting your username below, nothing else.

When we are ready to proceed, we will email you specific instruction on how to submit your puzzle. Unlike other quizzes, we are not going to just open the door and let them pile in. We will be sending you a request when we want you to submit one. Then we will review it, and publish it in due time.

Remember, this is a perk for Platinum Members.

Thank you for all you do,

Sploofus Central

If ever a reason was wanted to go platinum that's it. The opportunity to produce random insults of fellow members.... ooh the mind boggles. Better resist though; they've thrown me out once already, I'm not sure i could risk it again.

Hi Lisa and Bill,

FYI - It did not work that way for me. I previously had a 6-month gold membership scheduled to expire in September, then yesterday I upgraded to Platinum. Now my platinum membership says it will expire on 5-7-2009. In other words it just replaced my gold membership with Platinum, and did not add onto my gold membership.

That's OK with me, I'm happy to support the site. The upgrade screen says "An existing Gold Membership will not affect your Platinum upgrade" which I interpreted to mean that I wasn't going to get any credit for my Gold time. So I'm cool. But I'm mentioning this in case you or anyone else expects it to work differently.

Regardless, if you want to write a WP and your Gold expires "soon" then it may be worth it to you to jump to Platinum now, without waiting for the Gold to expire. This Platinum perk sounds like it could be a limited-time-offer!

Thanks for the bump up, Maurlin! It is not too late to sign up.

So far we have received puzzles from about half of those who signed up, so it will be almost all member written puzzles for the next 12 days (tomorrow night's is not - but the rest are).
