This is no fun is someone posts the correct answer (by looking up on Google) within 10 minutes.. Does not give others even a chance to look at the riddle to ponder it. One suggestion.. Why dont we use our "invisible" answer mechanism to hide the answers ? I guess the colors are #eadbc4 and #f0e6d5 Invisible Text : This should be invisible

but why dont we atleast agree to use invisible ink for answers.. that way others who come in late can see the puzzle without seeing the possible answers and can always see the answers if he wants to by hilighting
Why don't you do two threads. A question thread and an Answer thread. That way, people can look at the answer thread if they want the answer. Also, on the answer thread, post about 5 or 6 blank posts to it, so the first answer isn't visible without scrolling. Just a though. ------------------ Happy Coding, Gregg Bolinger
I like the invisible ink idea -- but that's soley up to the guy who thinks he has the right answer.

Well I guess I now know where Maky gets his answers from!

Solution: Before you click on the link to the riddle (it's marked something like 19th Nov Riddle so it shouldn't be a big surprise), cover up the lower portion of your screen, and then slowly scroll up until the riddle, but no answers are revealed. That solves everybody's proble. That way the burden is placed on the people who are worried about seeing the answer in the first place (who may or may not know how to change the color, not to mention that deleted posts will make things visible), not the people answering the question, and not Angela who might want to read the responses. Problem solved, everyone happy. [This message has been edited by Jason Menard (edited November 19, 2001).]
Angela... why not making the question invisible!, and make the thread Read Only, so nobody can answer. and if someone create new thread for answering the question, let Paul Stevens do the job editing those thread problem solved ! what am i talking about , it's supposed to be fun, why complained btw.... I send email (the answer) to Faisal, I am a the guy behind the screen ! stevie (Yoga Master), always kept my foot in my mouth
