    Ok, this topic isn't going so well, so this will be the last hint before posting the solutions tomorrow.

    Good luck to those working on this problem; I will post my solutions, a picture of Rajesh MS's solution, and a discussion on the efficiency of each, around this time tomorrow.

    Ok looks like it is time for a hint, hopefully to help some more people in getting started.

    I will give another hint tomorrow.

    In my opinion, there is not a solid one-answer to this riddle. I believe that the point behind the way it is worded is to provoke peoples imaginations and creativity towards finding a solution; I believe it is that which makes this puzzle beautiful, not the existence of a single answer.

    Come on wolfgang; don't be like that. I'm sure that there would be someone here that would be happy to double-check your puzzles before posting them. Hey, to say the least, you could even put "English is not my native language" in the title-description to warn people like NoMinorChords before they open the thread. There are actually a lot of people who are apart of this forum that are not from English speaking backgrounds. I hope this helps.
    Also, I enjoyed this puzzle very much, and the responses indicate that people understood what you were trying to get across.

    Could sridharang please put his/her response in a spoiler? And copy and pasting straight from another website is not appreciated; any member could find that quote easily, if they wanted to, but someone wanting to solve this puzzle themselves would have it spoiled by that quote.

    To pdqkemp: Love the pun =D

    Construct a perfect golden-rectangle using only a straightedge and compass. This is a puzzle on technique, not artistic ability; the procedure used is what we are focusing on.

    A golden rectangle is a rectangle whose side lengths are in the golden ratio φ:1, where φ=(1+√5)/2.

    Though not required, using a picture together with your explanation will help others understand the procedure you used. Please do not forget to use spoilers! The thing that I have used below. Thank-you =)

    I would have to say that your response is the only idea behind a possible solution; well done! Unfortunately I made a certain assumption at the start, which lead me down the "impossibility" path, to which I can safely say I would not of returned from.
    Such a great puzzle! I wish I could of solved it myself.

    Sounds like a guess? = P I like your projective ability though = D

    Very very close! The beige region may need a re-think. I am very glad you put a lovely picture up = D

    Yes! Very well done = D If you have a scanner, I'd love to see your sketch. Did you notice any red-herrings in this puzzle?

    You might want to read the original post a bit more carefully; the answer "should" have closed regions for 1 to 4.
