      Re: 12th Anniversary Crossword Contest - Discussion Thread

      NOTE: It's been brought to my attention that there is an extra square allotted for 2 Down. There should only be 12 letters in that answer.

      Thank you, @Icy BlackHeart, for finding that error.

      Everyone please black out the extra square in your solutions.

      Question Re: 12th Anniversary Crossword Contest - Discussion Thread

      @Willowdreamer

      I have a quick question about this contest- if I perfectly fill in the crossword, I would get entered in the "1st Place" tier. However, say nine other people are in that tier was well, with only three in the "2nd Place" tier. Is it up to me to be strategic and purposefully get some answers wrong in hopes of being put in a tier with less entries?
      Also, what will happen if nobody is entered into a certain tier?

      Yes, an entry with all correct answers would be in the first tier. It has happened in the past that most entries have ended up in the upper tiers and one of the lower tiers had only one entry in it, so that a person basically won the prize by default.

      That being said, whether you want to try to guess which tier other members are going to avoid in order to have a better chance at a prize, is up to you. If there is a particular prize tier you want to be in, you can certainly only fill in a portion of the puzzle so as to be placed in the prize tier you want.

      If there are no entries that qualify for a particular prize tier, that prize would then go into an all-entries random draw so that someone does win it.

      Might I ask why its tiered this way? I had the same thought process as Jared where I wasn't sure if it was worth successfully completing the crossword or just getting a few wrong to increase my odds of winning a prize in general.

      Wouldn't it be better to just have a draw for those who completed it fully with no wrong answers then pull out the winner and draw for the second place prize by including those who didn't win the first place prize as well as those who only qualified for the second place and so forth.

      In the early years of contests, the first person to submit an entry with all correct answers would win the first tier, and that seemed less fair to members who didn't see the contest right away. I came up with these tiers and it seems to work for more people. I really don't see much difference between my structure and yours, to be honest. The feedback I've gotten seems to be in favor of allowing the "strategy" of not putting all the right answers and going for the prize tier the member would prefer to win.

      Re: 12th Anniversary Crossword Contest - Discussion Thread

      I don't want to give anything away, but if we block out the last square in 2 down, doesn't "9 Across" answer not fit now? Shouldn't we instead block out the 8th square in that column (not the 13th square)?

      Sorry, I didn't see this before. Blocking out the last square works.
