  1. There is already an option to embed media files like video, movie, flash, blogmedia, youtube directly in posts. Just use the media tag.

    The following code

    [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YHe3ag3i8v8[/media]

    would look as follows

  2. Oh, sorry about that, but those two links are totally on topic in this forum, seeing the type of logic in most riddles I think people would've loved those (especially The Calculator one) I've posted in "Other mind boggeling stuff on the web" forum a while ago and it disappeared, can you check why?

    I have deleted it from the forum section since you started also another topic there that linked to your site (which was kept). One thread for one site is sufficient.

  3. For the time being, I prefer 10 minutes so that there are no subsequent edits. They might change posts to which replies have already been made without having record how the original post looked like. More posts in a row from the same poster within 20-30 minutes is still better than replies to posts where wording is no more what was replied to.

    BTW, you may find other useful tips in as well (like no external links) - they are, of course, linked to from Board Guidelines.

  4. Anza Power, I assume you are already aware of the editing limits. You might have seen it at registration of your account on BD, or when reading the Board Guidelines or even when you hit "Add Reply" button in any thread.

    Remember that you can edit your own post within the next 10 minutes only.

    My suggestion would be as written in the Board Guidelines

    If you think your riddle might need extended editing, try composing it in Notepad first. Then copy/paste into your post. That way you'll still have a few minutes for a final change or two.

    I am excited to hear further suggestions for improvement (as new threads in this forum section). There is still a lot that can be improved, however, the editing time will stay unchanged.

    Thanks.

  5. Hi,

    there are actually more variation posted on this site. One of them is also referred to in the very first post (pinned) in this forum section - Octopuppy gave his

    I have actually posted this one as well

    BTW, you will see more variations of this puzzle if you search for "josephine".

    Thread locked.

  6. Can someone tell me how to search for old word puzzles? I tried using the Advanced Search, but had no luck. I searched by title, but if the title was different the first time the puzzle was posted, is there another way to find it?

    Thanks for you help and Happy Holidays everyone!

    You can send me PM with all details and I will have a look - remember that the search keywords should be longer than 3 characters and should be unique. Often a simple Google search with unique keywords from the homepage BrainDen.com can help.

  7. Welcome to the Den, aliz8. Let me direct your attention to the forum rules (see the big link at the top - "Important: READ BEFORE POSTING"). Especially the part about doing search if you post a puzzle/riddle that you have not created. The point about searching is also visible when you start a new topic - there is a pink box saying "Remember that you can use the search feature to check if your puzzle is already part of this site." That way we try to ensure that always new brain teaser is provided.

  9. 1 - One or two puzzles seem to have a wide variety of answers; some are a little off target and therefore appearing to iritate/agitate people. Perhaps the chance to rate a reply woluld give oppurtunity to vote without leaving distasteful or uninteresting comments. It would suit me, can't speak for others though.

    NB I do like the discussions that follow some replies, but posting a 'well done' or 'good answer' is a bit cheezey - rating/voting answers seems better

    You can rate each post now. Check the plus sign and minus sign in the bottom right corner of each post. Such positive/negative points contribute to overall Reputation of the rated member.
