    Any way to make the containing box bigger and/or the puzzle smaller? Nested scrollbars that hide behind the “current clue” box are Seriously Not Fun.

      Yikes, thank you for alerting me! I’m on it.

    I’m a crossword fan and a name geek, so I love these! Any chance of a more riddly one in the future?

      That request is music to my ears! I actually create cryptic crosswords for fun, so I’m definitely up for riddles and tricks. The problem is that all-name crosswords turn out to be HARD–to construct, because of the extremely limited realm of vocabulary, and to clue/solve because, well, they’re names. (Try coming up with a gettable clue for a popular name like Amiyah or Kason.)

      I’ll try, though…maybe teeny mini-puzzles will work!

        I wonder how likely we “name people” are to be fans of acrostics, cryptoquotes, Bananagrams, Scrabble, etc…. I think many of us are really just “word people” who have found names to be a great outlet for that!

    Look at you helping out the crisis right now by making us more challenges! The name brackets I came back to yesterday …and wouldn’t you know I got 15/15! And now this to work on!?! Thank you- 🙂

    Btw, 28 Across is also a basic Snapchat reference. I wonder if that helps the turn in popularity- as the sound to the ear would be the same and likely still negative for teasing.

    Anyone know why I can’t post in the forums? When I try, it tells me to log in and directs me to a page that shows my user name and gives me the option to log out. I’ve tried logging out and logging back in. I’ve also tried to post from both my phone and my laptop. My account was created right when the website started and I’ve not posted much, but with a baby on the way I thought I’d post a new topic. 😉

      It looks like something’s gone wonky in the user synchronization between the forum and the rest of the site. The thing in the top bar which says “THEOTHERHUNGARIAN ACCOUNT/LOGOUT” on the rest of the site says “SIGN IN/REGISTER” on the forum. But my gravatar thingy appears just above the forum list, so I’m still logged in to the forum. I wonder if you have to find a different sign-in link if you’ve gotten signed out of the forums?

        Thanks for the heads up everyone, I’m working on the forum login problem!

    That was so much fun! Thanks, Laura. (While I’m here … can anyone tell me why when I upload a profile pic, it keeps turning it sideways?)
