I kept making silly mistakes and having to start again or back-track. It's happening a lot lately.

Same here (a lot lately) - especially with everything that has "Killer" in its name.
Unnecessarily, I put in wrong pencil numbers or miss correct ones.

That's why I don't rate - if I put in a wrong number and then have to use "show wrong" to see the mistake I made, because I don't feel like spending time to trackback to find it myself, then this doesn't mean that the puzzle is hard.
On the other hand - if I make a stupid mistake in my favor, the puzzle might have become easier than it is - do I know if I made it easier by error?

And lately, if I do go back "half the puzzle" to find a mistake - doing it over again from there, I feel less motivated, and I struggle to do it "again" (but different), I miss somehow obvious steps - that doesn't mean it is a hard puzzle. It's my mental state.

I'm glad I'm not the only one making stupid mistakes! Not surprising considering the state of the world at the moment.I tend just to give up unless the error is obvious.

I can't seem to concentrate on anything at the moment. I'm glad it's not just me

Key

  • A yellow/light blue highlight in the time distribution charts highlights your time, where relevant.
  • Rating scores out of 10.0 show the average difficulty rating chosen by users, where 1.0 is "Easy" and 10.0 is "Hard".
  • If a puzzle is opened more than once, including by loading from a saved position, then this is potentially a significant aid so it is listed as being completed with 'multiple sessions' for the purpose of the best time/average rating displays above.
  • Minor aid is defined as no more than one use of 'Check solution' when incomplete and/or no more than one use of 'Check solution' when wrong; and/or using highlighting aids (show repeated digits, show broken inequalities and show valid/invalid placements [slitherlink] only). Major aid is any and all other use of the solving aids except for 'show wrong'.
