David: I can see the point of not having a spoiler. It forces people to think, which is a good thing. The down side of not having one getting 25 threads of "Need help on level 5", lots of frustration for those who can't get it from hints, eventually a spoiler gets posted anyway, or you lose a player.

I don't think everybody would automatically go to a spoiler. Where's the fun in that?

Look at the poll results so far. Those who like the challenge won't look at a spoiler and most of the rest would like to have the spoiler; either when necessary or just to have fun seeing how the puzzle t works.

Do you really like all this board activity/redundancy?

With spoilers there is no way to tell who actually had the intellect to get through stuff. Not that is counts for anything but, its a pride things. People like Dirk, Slasher, Junimond, AKTKG, B1ackout, just to name a few, they have proven themselves. we all go hints along the way but it means something to know that they grunted through it just like me.

People that only wanted spoilers like Killersonic...well they were like little children and I frankly didn't want them in the forum. I think you need to earn your way to end...doesn't mean anything otherwise.

Blimey, why do people ask about levels in threads that do not pertain to that level.........................whats wrong with askin on the thread for that level. I've opened up a couple of threads to read on here today, only to find people asking about a specific thread! WHY, WHY, WHY!!!

I think they´re to unpatient (read lazy) to go through the forum to find the threads and that they don´t read the "stickys" about the game. The common mentality is: "I need help and right this minute!". Then if they don´t get the help "right this minute", they try other threads to see, if they can get the answer there ;)

I needed hints probably like most people do, I never had a spoiler and wouldnt have one.

I am quite surprised that people still post in threads, as there is enough information there at the moment, maybe too much information in some threads.

I PMed one person that looked like they needed help, and asked them what they had with reference to clues etc to their level they were on, they said they had nothing they just wanted the answer. I didnt reply back.

I don't care for spoilers. But sometimes I do need a push, whether it be little or huge. It's funny, because when I'm not playing notpron, I'm still actually playing it in my mind. friends of mine say I will end up like the guy in A Beautiful Mind, always looking for the code for things.:lol:

I would like to play the riddle without spoilers, but when you're really stuck (like I am at level 36 right now :rolleyes: )......boy that's frustrating.

I find myself dreaming about it, wake up thinking I've got another way to solve the riddle (with a different program)....and then finding out that this also won't work :mad:

so yes, every now and then I could do with a spoiler....... (and feel embaressed about it )

actually, I have used one spoiler for a level that I could by no way figure out! But on the other hand, even with the answer I could not understand how it was connected to the riddle! Never mind, I would have given up ....
I much more prefer hints, and I never google for answers ( spoilers) , it spoils all the fun!!!!
I like to think it over a lot, and then read post by post on the level! Thanx to all of you that give great hints, I like the way your mind works!!!
