I understand the clues but solved it by guessing.

Can someone GM me to tell me why

Spoiler (click to reveal)
the Wiki keyboard gave me VCH as the first word?


Did I use the wrong one? Or use it incorrectly? Or not enough?

Can anyone salt me on the hypercross? I have a vague idea what's going on but can't really make heads or tails of it. Either salt here or GMs would be appreciated!

EDIT::

Never mind...right after posting that, we got it.

I cant believe that made it through the screening process...

Okay... I'm on the 10/17 Hypercross Puzzle...

I'm so lost, it's not even funny. Here's what I have...

Spoiler (click to reveal)
lube - e = lub + "noleftturn" - ght
what's up w/ THAT?
Spoiler (click to reveal)
confederate flag - bell
I read on the comments that it's a stretch, so no clue here either
Spoiler (click to reveal)
core - e = cor + (states? us?)

Spoiler (click to reveal)
dew - w = e
definitely not enough letters
Spoiler (click to reveal)
cavemen - cave = men + die - e = mendi

Spoiler (click to reveal)
desk - k = des
Read that it was obscure, so I was thinking
Spoiler (click to reveal)
secretary desk?

Spoiler (click to reveal)
apple - e = appl + eye = appleye? apply?


Anybody have any salt on how to fill in the blanks here? I don't understand this "Magic Word" people keep talking about.

I've been frustrated since last night and I can't make any progress here. Please help. Thx.

OMG, that was obnoxious... I didn't even see the overlapping area clues. =-/

At first I thought you were belittling me w/ the "CANT be any clearer".

LOL

Thank you much! =-]

Using your second one, use what is left, not what the spider has eaten. Then anagram.

Yeah, I guessed that early, but I have never seen a way to search using that criteria on that site... what is the path?

There's alot of information on these pages. Any chance I could get some help on narrowing it down? I have each one of the movies summary pages pulled up. Only numbers I see are the length of these movies and then title number in the address bar. I understand that somehow, I'll get a new title number to input, but I have no clue how to get there.



EDIT: Nevermind... figured it out. LMAO Duh!

Is it just me or is Tanga having a rough time these past few months. I love the site, but it seems that more and more things are error filled and less and less of the site seems to be altered/updated by Tanga folks these days.

Maybe we need to send Tanga a giant "get well soon" card and a crate of chicken noodle soup.

No, it's not just you. I have had the feeling for a long time that the staff is suffering from the "too" disease: Too few people, stretched too thin, trying to do too many things, with (too) grandiose plans (you can add "too many customers asking for things"). Startup burnout.

I sent renfurdson a suggestion to put a link to the puzzle maker guidelines on the "submit content" page, and he passed that on to TJ saying he didn't have permissions to change it. If all changes are funneling through one or two people operating on overload as they try to roll out "cool new features" - well there you go. Perhaps they feel that the pages that need changes will soon be superseded. I do get the feeling that, in their distraction, they aren't particularly concerned about the pages that have errors, as they have been sitting there for a long time (even after errors have been specifically pointed out to them) - not realizing (or caring?) how poorly it reflects on them.

I could go on, but I don't want to turn this into Tanga bashing - and only want to provide constructive criticism.

I too love the site, and hope it's not burnout that is afflicting them, as that's really tough to recuperate from.

I'll chip in on that crate of soup!
