    Like the new solved button setup. Had to re-enter so many solutions when it realized I wasn’t logged in that I started copying them to the clipboard before submitting as a habit.

      Yes, David’s been doing a good job when he has the time making that API more friendly. Some more updates should come in the next couple weeks and I’ll mention the important ones when I can.

    45 seconds ?Was that a robot who test solved?This is certainly not a 45 second slitherlink even for a person who had been solving slitherlink all his life .Because of that X whoever has test solved the expert times have got horrifyingly low.And i was highlighting the times happily expecting to see an expert time break and i got a shock.
    Reveal the test solver’s name.Let him take a piece of advice from the times i post on how to solve puzzles slowly.

    I’m usually somewhere between master and expert, and got this one done in about 2 minutes. So I’d say the times were pretty accurate.

    On puzzles with shorter times like this one, my notation usually holds me back a bit.
