No. Do not include spaces or other separators that are found in the username.

Eg: Ivan Seeking becomes IVANSEEKING, one continuous 11-letter word.

Ouch! Found a mistake in the grid. Will have to redo it. Most of the existing grid is correct though. So, if you want to make any calls now, I will count them and enter them in the new grid - you don't have to wait for me to fix it. You will not, naturally, be penalized for a mistake I've made.

Will be replacing old grid with new grid at 4:50pm EST (in 2 minutes).

EDIT: Grid is fixed. We are all set now.

All correct.

You're all out of grid calls and have 1 (or 2?) left for clue cracking.

The grid will be updated in a bit.

I don't have any ideas yet for the rest of the clues, but I'll think on them.

That's the point of the crossword grid - it will help with the hard ones that are left. But I made the grid somewhat sparse, so it doesn't provide too much help.

26. Heels broke in the afternoon - returned.

broken heels = HESLE
in the afternoon = PM, and then returned = MP

M(HESLE)P = broken heels inside the returned afternoon

21 vanesh, 23 Moonbear. I can't see what have been posted, each refresh takes several minutes :frown: Picture changed just to link, sorry, I haven't read the rules. At least I was able to edit my previous post.

I wonder when this one will appear...

Correct. I will fill these in shortly. (EDIT: done)

PS: I would appreciate if you put that link in a spoiler tag or made it more clear that it has filled in grid boxes.
