I have tried to contact Gareth by email and message, but I renewed my subscription last week, only for it to treat is a new subscription not an extention so I have now lost access to all the old puzzles from my previous subscription. I am a long time subscriber and have not had this problem before. Am I the only one or is it a general fault? I have logged out and back in, but still the older puzzles are greyed out.

Hi Jo,
Sorry for the delay, although to be fair it's not yet 48 working hours since you renewed and emailed! :) But I appreciate you're keen to get back to them!

When you renew you receive a message at the top of your account page explaining how to get old puzzles restored, which I have now done. It's been the same way since the site launched in 2007 - I guess you must always have renewed before expiry previously.

Of course it would be better if this happened automatically, and I think that it might even be better if on subscription any user automatically gained access to the past year of puzzles anyway. I can't see why this would be a bad thing, really.

Thanks for renewing!

(Actually, FWIW, I can see your puzzles have actually expired every year - so probably you'd just played all the previous ones on other occasions so this wasn't obvious? It's only unplayed puzzles that expire - played ones never do. In any case, sorry for the inconvenience!)
