A modest proposal...

How about splitting the "New Puzzles" into "spatial, math, and logic" and "riddles/latteral thinking." For those of us that gravitate more towards one or the other, that could be helpful!

Cheers,

I would normally agree, but then the creator would have to choose the category, which could cause havoc with the newbies. If the moderators had to go around correcting categorys, then they would waste a lot of time. Also I think just having a New Puzzles page is nice. It's nice to know what is hot, fresh and new on the site.
Thanks for listening,

I have made a few other visible changes:
1. the latest puzzle gets advertising on forum index page - check "Brain Teasers Forum latest news:" at the top
2. requirement for unique and descriptive title added into rules - hopefully no more riddles will be titled just "WAI"

2. When you start a new topic, include a descriptive and unique title. For instance, "What-Am-I - Holiday Theme" or "What-Am-I - Tribute to Descartes" and not "WAI".

3. signature requirements were added in rules of each forum and registration rules as well

7. Keep your signature short - preferably 1 or 2 lines of simple text. More on signature rules.

Some other suggestions (that I'm proud of :D)

Tuesday paper headlines, "Awarded chemistry professor found dead in his lab!"

Wednesday paper headlines, "Team building exercise painted in blood!"

With the rest of my riddles I wasn't so descriptive... I wish I was... :(

Your signature is OK - your picture is not big as per the extended rules. I just wanted to set some clear rules (especially for newbies). Some signatures were quite distracting and it's better to start with 1 or 2 lines of simple text.

Thanks rookie for that (and andro too it appears), it was beginning to put me off looking at the New Puzzles page. A description requirement is great.

Further changes:
1. forum section for old optical illusions deleted and single thread was moved from there to the new optical illusions
2. rules for all forums were updated
3. new forum section created for word riddles
4. WAI riddles moved to the new forum section (other word riddles to be moved as well) - you can PM me or moderators if you see that some riddles/puzzles should be moved

list of word riddles:
riddle of the sphynx
What-Am-I riddles
anagrams
codes
Shakeepudn's style
interesting words and letters (eg. bookkeeper)
puns

list of other puzzles:
logical - this one is tricky since riddles are logical as well - examples: honestants/swindlecants, crossing river puzzles, hats on death row, weighing puzzles etc.
math [e.g. probability]
physics
geometry
sequences
treasure hunts

Effective immediately, all new word riddles should be placed in forum section for "New Word Riddles".
