vsrawat Rated puzzle: Moderate Completion time: 1:05:41 Used 'check puzzle' when incorrect
At this site, diagonal (X) aspect is not clear enough, its red color gets subdued in other colors and we fail to notice it. I proceeded all the way and solved a long way, but then I was stuck with perfectly matched pairs with no further clues, so I thought from your mind, and then I noticed that it is diagonal one, then I solved in a jiffy. Please give a thought to make X diagonal color prominent so that it just cannot be overlooked. Thanks.

Hi vsrawat,
Thanks for your comment. I hadn’t ever thought about the fact that it might be harder to see if you’re colourblind. When I rebuild the site at some point in the next couple of years this is something I’ll think about further. Thanks for pointing it out!

I didn't get the colourblind aspect of this request - but I know that I missed the X in one previous puzzle, too, even though the name of the puzzle mentions it clearly....

@gareth: instead of announcing a thought for change in the far feauture (measured in years?), why not quickly exchange the file https://www.puzzlemix.com/gfx/dithering.gif
with a different one that is a bit darker? (maybe gfx/ditheringdark.gif has to be changed as well in the process).

For the desktop version it might be a quick solution, no re-programming needed.

(I recently did a 12x12 jigsaw, and the two light yellows were adjacent and also both wrapped. That was hard to tell apart...)
