  1. I really believe that if we can have strong advertising in the right places, this can and will be crowded once again. It may take many people to show what exists here.  It may take a societies of nerds to be invaded with ads.  This site was doing super in 2006 and up until the crash. If it was catchy at that time, it can be just as good going if not better.  Biggest trouble is not enough helpers and clients here to give a darn.  Hopefully it will happen or something more exciting is keeping this old-fashioned and not as attractive.

     

    I agree. Every forum member, guest or simply a fan of this website can help by linking to BrainDen.com (or any specific page within these forums - eg. Mafia games) and by that recommending this website to others. Of course, the best place for such link/recommendation is a website visited by people who like brain teasers and games.

     

    Are you a webmaster?

    Do you have a blog?

    Are you a regular contributor to other forums?

    Do you have an account on myspace, facebook, twitter or any other social/community site?

    Do you link your favorite sites on stumbleupon, digg, reddit, delicious or any other online bookmarking service?

    Are you a teacher who gives his/her students brain teasers on your school's web site?

    Are you a student who likes to discuss topics on school's web site or just chatting/talking to other students?

    Do you have friends who like brain teasers and games?

    If you answered "YES" at least once, then you can help by linking BrainDen pages that you like on other sites where you participate.

    There is also another simple way to recommend good content to your friends - click Google "+1" or Facebook "Like" buttons at the top of the page that you find interesting. For instance, do you like our Optical Illusions?

     

    Thanks.


  2. That's a great optical illusion which got viral 2 days ago and it divided internet population to 2 groups - those who saw "white and gold" and those who saw "blue and black" (who were in minority). Even many celebrities got involved.

     

    Of course, what might see as white is actually blue. It was quite well explained on many sites already. Since I have here a nice collection of color illusions as well, BrainDen was quoted in several articles about that dress (Washington Post, Guardian etc.).

     

    Thanks for sharing the illusion. Keep them coming.

     

    Enjoy the Den  ;)

  3. Site admin is cool with emailing invites to this game.

    In addition to the names in the previous post, who else should we lure back in the clutches of Mafia addiction?

    I'll send the list to Admin later today.

     

     
    Site Admin is happy to help and unleash epic BrainDen Mafia battles of wits again.
     
    I have invited 17 old Mafia players via mail.

  4. With great sadness in my heart I have learnt that SuperPrismatic, our well-respected forum moderator, has died suddenly on March 25th 2014 at the age of 69. It was a heart attack without any previous medical problems.
    Michael (whom we knew as SuperPrismatic) left a wife and 5 children. He joined BrainDen Brain Teaser Forums 6 years ago and his genius was apparent from the very beginning. However, he was not only brilliant but also very respectful which is also why I offered him to be The Moderator here. It was an honor for me that he accepted my offer and that he contributed to this website so much.
    SP's daughter wrote us that SP enjoyed this BrainDen website and SP wouldn't want to abandon this place without saying Farewell. And that's why let me use this thread to:
    1. thank SP for all the great discussions, all the posts where he helped others and all the time he spent here with us
    2. share my sincere condolences with SP's family
    Please join me in this Last Farewell to SP.
    Thanks.

  5. Not sure if I understand. Keywords should already be included in the original puzzle threads and adding keywords which are not already part of the original thread would still leave some synonyms out.

    Any example where you searched for some old thread and could not find it by using some specific keyword?


  6. hey Kikacat - will try to add what i can. hunted for the info myself and could not find the page that i think explained the member titles. etc and was originally linked to from the "Important: Read Before Posting" page. Even that page was not too easy to find (had to click the register link as a guest - maybe there's an easier route).

    1. think OmegaScales has this one. will add that after 1000 posts a dialogue box on your settings page allows you to select your own member title

    2. again as OS said, those four and your own after 1000 posts. The title under your avatar is the group title and those for right now are Members, VIP, Moderator, and Admin.

    3. rookie1ja chooses when/if new VIPs. last time around he consulted with the moderators but it's up to him.

    4. & 5. the stars below the avatars on posts (1-4) i believe correspond to the Newbie, Junior, Advanced, Senior and above. There is also a rating system on each members profile page of 1-5 stars which is not widely used.

    That's correct ;)

    Let me know if you want to know further details or if you have any suggestions to improve anything.

    1. Board Guidelines - link in the bottom right corner of every page (rules for all forum sections)

    2. Important: READ BEFORE POSTING - in forum sections view (those are forum rules specific for each forum section)

    Fun fact - actually the stars below avatars on posts are "Bonanova Gold Stars". Original forum picture for that differed initially.


  7. (spoiler="I am trying to do my first spoiler. Here it is.")spoiler test(/spoiler)

    Edit: What did I do wrong?

     

    Hi Kikacat123, thanks for asking. You can create spoiler in 2 basic ways:

     

    1. automatically - clicking on button including white "S" in blue square which you see when you compose your message - a pop-up should then be displayed where you enter the visible spoiler title and  the text that should be masked

     

    2. enter the spoiler code manually - copy or write this

    [spoiler='visible title']hidden text[/spoiler]
     

    In the end it should look like this.

     

    hidden text

     

    Enjoy the Den  ;)


  8. What was going on here last summer. I just noticed that there were over 600 online at one time.

    Seems like a glitch in the system - a lot had to be repaired and tested.

    However, it looks like the good old members are coming back.

    Thanks to all your efforts and for letting the old members know that BD is back.


  9. When I click on the folder it says that "There is no brain teaser in this category" and this is same for all of them. Do I have to install/download some extensions?

    Pls try to uninstall from your mobile and install from Google Play again.

    If the issue persists let me know and we will dig deeper (eg. what Android version you are using, if the whole app has been extracted/installed correctly to 100% etc.)


  10. I would be thankful for any ideas (and for actions even more) to get more people on BD.

    Anybody can
