I would make a poll, but I don’t know how.
specifically, I want to talk about when people come here looking for hints. A long time ago some very clever people on this board used to put very clever hints behind spoiler tags. I admit I liked that system better than the current one. Now you need to post you need a hint and hope someone here can help you, that that person will see your post and respond to it, initiating a pm dialog no one else is privy too. I feel there is a strong advantage to hiding the hints behind spoiler tags. The fact that they remain available for as long as the board is available. Whereas hints in a pm dialog are available only to the two people in the dialog.
so everybody feel free to jump in with you opinions, feedback, reasoning, memes and recipes. 😁
I Apologize for all grammatical and spelling errors as well as missing words and words that make no sense in the provided context. My IPad hates me.
I would generally prefer hints don't shift to PM discussions. I find myself challenged by the limits of my memory. I'll sometimes see questions about a puzzle solved years ago and have to re-solve, which I'm happy to do, but if it's a public post and not a PM, someone with a younger brain might be able to chime in earlier.
I support this - I had to google how to use spoiler tags but I think the spoiler tag method would be so much better as we move forward as it helps people experience the games more smoothly. I hate being halted when I'm in a groove of an experience because I need a little nudge. Maybe we should draw attention to how to make spoiler tags again?!? They appear universal but some people don't think to google.

There is a spoiler tag button along the top of reply boxes on this forum. It’s the very last button before the pencil on the right. When you click the button it opens a box in which you can write the spoiler text. When you are finished writing spoiler text in the box just press the insert spoiler button. It takes care of everything for you. 😁
diggitydoodog: I've had dubious documents for 2 years now and finally went to work on it. Would anyone on here be willing to PM me the answer or post it in a spoiler so I can check the solution?
