    I think the brain teasers shold have a solution section so people who want to participate are not shown the answer , or maybe a u2u reply ... just a thought . Or "solved added to the title so people know not to scroll down and reveal the answer .

    Maybe a sub-forum for the solutions? It seems to be a very popular forum. I feel ashamed that I havent solved one yet myself. Well, at least the trickier ones anyway. Some were just real easy.

    During the hunt everyone worked together to solve puzzles and riddles like the ones in the brain teaser forum. Sure some of the ones on in the hunt were harder, but that made it all the more important to work together. I think the same should be done in the brain teaser forum that way it will better prepare us all for the next hunt. So posting the answers in the same thread is not a problem because everyone is working towards a common goal to solve the brain teaser.

    When one person spits out an answer it does nothing to help the flow of reasoning or logic to the individual . Also , the clues in the hunt all started with one long winded scenario setting the scene for the entire game , so they all had some direction established These are just random little tid-bits that I would like to try solo .

    Try this one , it has all the information you need to solve right here , but if you share the answer , you would rob someone of the chance to work it thru for themselves . Think of it as a training exersize so the future team can all be warmed up as individuals .

    In the future , I just won't scroll down to the answer until I'm ready I guess .

    A death has occured at the traveling carnival , one half of the worlds smallest twins has been found dead by his own hand , they both shared the record for the worlds smallest man for many years . Their envy for each other was well known as each wanted the title all to himself . They were very old and starting to have trouble walkig due to advanced arthritis .
    A rookie cop quickly fills out a suicide report while the senior detective searches the room . He tells the rookie to stop and fill out a homicide report , and to go arrest the mans twin brother

    The evidence he found was two pieces of wood of different lenghts , some sawdust , and a small saw .

    Explain ?

    Well, Having a different forum or sub forum could get complicated. I say use courtesy... ward people and give about 10 lines of dots to warn people to go no farther.

    Here is an example....... http://www.ignorancedenied.com/viewthread.php?tid=113

    Notice that I made the title and then I warned everyone of the answer below, then I added some dots.... Just be courteous.

    i think a "solved" label would be nice for the solved problems, however, some people guess the correct answer but are not sure if its right, so they dont try and leave space above their post.

    Just an advice for curious PC user. Don't mess with Services that you do not know.

    My problem is solved. The problem is pop-up.
