Crossword Connections #6- no 60D clue - Sun Oct 07 2012 05:14 PM

For the appropriate editor:

I just played Crossword Connections #6 as the "Crossword of the Week." I found that it lacked a clue for 60 Down, although the correct word for it is "foe." When I clicked on the puzzle to get the clue for 60D, it instead displayed the clue for 1D repeatedly. I tried to flag this minor correction in the usual way, but apparently the account for author Soozy_Woozy no longer exists.

thanks

It might just be you. I just went to it and the 60D clue says "Enemy".

It might've just been a technical glitch.

Usually clearing the cache will fix something like this. I checked the template, and all looks good on that end. The fact that triviaking was able to see the clue points to a caching issue.

I received a note from someone else regarding this and didn't have problems on my end either.

Oh that was me! I thought I was going mad but I swear it wasn't there. At least I know what the problem was now smile

I did the puzzle on Monday and had exactly the same problem with 60 Down. I did send an error message, but got a notice that the author was no longer on the system. I thought that the error would still reach an editor anyway, but maybe I was mistaken.

You're not going mad, 60D wasn't there for me either.
When I went back to it after a few hours it was aok.

Thanks, have changed it so you can send notes to users who no longer exist.

60 down appears there for me!

I had the same problem with another crossword - all the 'down' clues were 1D - then I clicked on a square on the crossword, and it went back to the normal display.
