How do I add a rating if I missed it right after finishing a puzzle?
Ho do I add if I have not finished it yet?

Just click “give up” - then you can rate.

This is probably the only button I will never click on. But after spending 30+ minutes I think I have pretty good idea about the difficulty of a puzzle.

same here. I think it shows in the status bar in the puzzle's forum...

Do you think it would be useful to be able to rate a puzzle without finishing it? Or on a similar token, maybe to make private comments on a puzzle that only you see? I'm not sure how much anyone would use either function, except very occasionally? I expect most people don't return to most puzzles, and if they do then they probably will remember that without help from any new site functions in that respect?

Also, what about 'favouriting' puzzles and that kind of thing? Or rating for enjoyment, not difficulty? Could be a thumbs-up / neutral / thumbs-down for each puzzle? Then maybe you would see your own rating and the average rating for each puzzle?

1) rating without finishing: no. But a way to rate later seems to be the requested feature (without having to change the personal status of the puzzle, like adding to the number played or given up counters)

I don't rate generally, and I think I explained somewhere in this forum, why. This is why I get to...

...2) about the forums:
-> a search function might be helpful
-> an area with only "general discussion" topics would be great. Threads like this one might be even moved there...


3) favorites: yes - if you can use this feature to go back to puzzles older than a year (might be worth for puzzles like Nurikabes or Hanjies)

4) On the token of results not older than one year: I shared my opinion before, that I think the limitation 'one year' was not necessary if you gave a max limit of puzzles shown at once, or filter each search for a specific year (like 'only results from 2019'), in addition to 'within the last ... days') respectively. Then the reason for saving older puzzles, given in 3) is not necessary anymore (you could get to all Hanjies from 2019 easily) ... and because of almost always unique titles, Hanjies have the most chances of being remembered anyway...

5) private comments: I don't think I would use it - maybe in combination with favoriting it. So you know why you marked a puzzle as favorite...? But if you have a list of puzzles with private comments, then this might already be a favorite list...
I don't think anyone would go back to a puzzle that was not enjoyed.


Ok, I wrote enough or even too much....

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'.
