This is a site dedicated to the sharpening of the mind. You can use this forum to hack puzzles with other puzzlers, to give yourself hints, and to get a glimpse of how other people think.
If you're one of those people who was always good at puzzles or math, try not to belittle the attempts of others -- others who may not have had the education you were fortunate enough to have experienced. Polite and constructive criticism is appreciated. Spend the time to make your posts clear, and be aware that most people in this world have no clue what an XOR is, so you may need to briefly define the terms you use.
If you're a person who was never very good at puzzles or math, don't be afraid to ask questions, post your thoughts, and try. It's the only way you'll really learn, by trying. When you make mistakes, there will usually be someone willing to show you what's wrong.
Any kind of derogatory, hateful, or racist commentary is strictly unallowed, and may result in me banning your IP address.
Finally, note the following four important points:
1. It has become customary in this forum to hide solutions from view, even if the solutions are only partial. Text can be hidden by surrounding it with hide tags ([hide] [/hide]). Hidden text can be revealed by highlighting it with your mouse. The purpose of this system is to prevent the spoiling of puzzles. If all solutions were easily visible, a person who is casually browsing the forum for new problems could unintentionally see the solution to those problems right under the problem statements. Please uphold this policy.
2. For more tips on how to use this forum effectively (e.g. how to type math symbols, how the rankings work), read the FAQ threads at the top of the "suggestions, help, and FAQ" forum.
3. BEFORE CONSTRUCTING A NEW THREAD FOR A PUZZLE, ALWAYS USE THE **SEARCH FUNCTION** TO DETERMINE IF THERE ALREADY IS AN EXISTING THREAD ON THAT PUZZLE.
4. AT LEAST TRY TO READ A THREAD BEFORE YOU POST TO IT, TO AVOID BEING **REDUNDANT**.
Have fun! I hope you find the forum as educational as I have.
