I have decided to amalgamate our puzzles threads

I would really love someone to take responsibility for cleaning them up properly but I want them to be only one sticky topic so this is my short term (may extend forever) solution.

Would be cool if the puzzles themselves and their solutions were a bit distanced. Say, for instance, the questions were on one page, and their solution on another. :)

The specific puzzles could be numbered.

Actually Tetration that is a good idea but it would take a lot of effort and time to get it well organised.

Last year NinjaDevo organised the "Reference Material" and "Great answers to Learn From"  He did a great job, I continue to be very grateful to him.

If you ever want to tackle the puzzles that would be great but I am not tryingto pressure you.

Have a think about it. Get back to me if you are interested.

The last 2 guests were me, just before I made this account. I decided to reupload the puzzle here, so if any of you are considering adding my quiz to this list, you can add the one at this new link.
