Apologies for winning this within 2 secs of seeing the photo - but I was standing on those battlements just 6 months ago!

Location, location,.location!

Or as Timothy Leary said: "Everybody's got to be somewhere, man!"

No apologies necessary! Congratulations. The only 3 I've known straight off so far ( i.e. 1 or 2 tiles) had all been guessed before I got there!

Excellent, Surrey! And no apologies allowed! We all had hours and hours and hundreds of guesses before you got your shot. Good on ya!

Whenever I enter a new photo for a WTHAI I always think "I bet someone lives near this, or was just there and will get it with one tile revealed."

Just one more aspect of being part of this global Sploofus community!

You evil editors, you've done it again, posting Marilyn Manson while I was at work? Shameful......

Other players get a chance to win sometimes too, Jeremy.

Don't know if anyone will see this post....but why not set these up like Word Puzzles are set up? I mean give everyone their own shot at them and rely on the "honor" system for people not to give the answers away? They go so fast now, what will they be like when we add another 40,000 sploofusers to the guessing mix?

I think it's nice that every game operates differently. WP's are twice a day, if you miss one you missed it. Quizzes can be taken anytime. Trivia Squares can be saved half done and come back to. WRs and WMs can be played anytime, but the leaderboards restart every hour. WTHAIs last as long as they need to to be solved; too bad if you missed one, another will be along soon (kind of like riding the bus!). TQOTDs are good for 10 days and then they expire.

Sploofus offers something for everyone and in many different formats and timeframes. I think Justin is freakin' brilliant to have laid it out this way!

It all has a "leave 'em wanting more" sort of philosophy that we addicts can't get enough of!

I guess I like the way it's set up NOW, but most of us are in and out and don't even get a chance to guess. But if you log in often enough there's a few you get a chance at, usually the ones that are too hard because they've been sitting there so long. I'm okay with I guess as long as I get a chance, but when there's another 40,000 players added, my imagination tells me they will be solved quickly and just sit there for hours, not sure about my "guessing" chances then! There's only a few a day, think I would just like it better if it was set up like a wordpuzzle or tqotd once all those players come streaming in.....

Thanks for responding by the way suzer.

That's an interesting idea -- if Justin ever gets the technology up, a WTHAIWP. A Word Puzzle combined with pictures, where the answer is who or where it is. If you can identify the pic, you're on your way to a fiver; otherwise, you may need to slog through some letters, never knowing that someone this side of Jack Haley named their kid Tinsley.

Or just have them sent to you like a TQOTD with a longer time limit, or just get a "private" shot at them somehow.....
