Comment posting guidelines

Welcome to Your Puzzle Source’s puzzle site. Here you can enjoy your morning digital crossword over a cup of coffee!

We want you to enjoy your stay here as much as possible and to do so, please abide by these guidelines:

Don’t be a jerk.

We will not tolerate any name-calling, personal attacks or harassment of any kind. Racism, bigotry, misogyny or any other inappropriate responses will be removed.

Absolutely NO drama!

Do not bring drama from a different channel onto this one. Personal attacks against a mod will not be tolerated. Do not pursue an argument with a mod from another channel they mod to this one.

Stay on topic.

If your post does not address the article or relate to it in some context, you will be asked to take your conversation to the Coffee Lounge and your post deleted.

No trolling

If you post a deliberately offensive or provocative comment with the aim of upsetting someone or eliciting an angry response from them, your post will be deleted. Continue the behavior and you’ll be asked to leave.

No stalking

If you follow someone to this channel to continue an argument you’ve had with them on another or to harass them, your post will be deleted. Continue the behavior and you will be asked to leave.

No sock puppets

If you try to circumvent a ban by returning with a sock puppet or new account, you will earn an instant ban; no warning needed.

No serial flagging

Flagging is to be done only if the commenter has violated the Disqus Terms of Service, contains spam or offensive language. Flagging simply because you don’t agree with someone is unacceptable.

Community members may post threads, but they must be framed correctly.

Articles first with links to credible sources.

No personal opinions in the OP, that’s what the thread is for.

No rants.

All rules are subject to change.

We are also obligated by Disqus to abide by the basic rules. The following are not allowed on Disqus:

  1. Targeted harassment and encouraging others to do so
  2. Spam
  3. Impersonation
  4. Direct threat of harm
  5. Posting personally identifiable information
  6. Inappropriate profile content

Thank you for taking the time to read these guidelines. We hope you enjoy your stay here!

A quick word about Quick Puzzles

It is an challenging time to produce crosswords as our culture goes through the epochal switch from paper to digital communication. We, as constructors, have to figure out ways to fit our puzzles onto today’s favorite communication/reading devices—the handheld and tablet. And, we need to tailor our crosswords to meet the needs of puzzlers living in a fast-paced, sometimes frenetic, world.

My solution has been Quick Puzzles. QPs are compact crosswords, that are a comfortable size for the typical digital screen. These QPs take less time to solve than the more expansive crosswords traditionally seen in daily newspapers. However, Quick Puzzles retain all the fun you  expects from a good crossword—like themes, clever clues, and longer words to puzzle out.
