I'm sorry it's taken a while to get the forums back up. We had hardware problems, followed by corrupt backups and phpBB version incompatabilities. The upshot is that I'm afraid we've lost a few months postings. If you registered more recently then you will need to do so again. There is still a chance that I will be able to retrieve the missing posts at some point, but in the meantime you are encouraged to register and post at will.

As some kind of meagre compensation, there's a sneak preview of changes that will come to the draw/play hint function. Take a look at:

http://www.dailysudoku.co.uk/sudoku/play.shtml?today=1&devel=1

You can add the "&devel=1" to the end of any draw/play url to see the new hint things at work. It's incomplete, so some advanced hints won't yet work. Feel free to comment if you want the chance of your say shaping it (within the boundaries of what I can reasonably do).

Sam,

The first hint in today's puzzle is:

Messages:
r2c3=4: locked candidate in box 1


I think you should have a hierarchy:

Mild hint: Locked candidate
Strong Hint: Locked candidate in Box 1
Answer: R2C3=4

Welcome back!

Keith

Yep -- you mentioned this before and I like the idea. I have it on the list, and it will be much easier to do with the rewritten hint calculator.

Welcome Back.

I like the new hint feature.

I also like how you improved the sweep feature to not insert removed candidates. That was kind of annoying.

Nice to see you back up and running.
