No, dude! A tip! I want to solve the puzzle! Yes, happens quite often. That's why I usually try to contact the owner first. Only if that doesn't work out (owner doesn't respond, or is not helpful), I'll ask previous finders. The owner may give you unwanted spoilers too. I've had that happen, both with finding the hide ("I saw your DNF, here's where to look:...") and with solving puzzles ("You're on the right track. Now all you need to do is..."). I encourage folks to reach out to us on our puzzles, rather than go to the Facebook spoiler group. I start by asking what they've figured out so far and how much of a hint they want. Sometimes, though, a nudge doesn't help those who wanted a nudge, and it turns into a gentle push (OK, have you tried...), then a friendly jolt (You really want to be looking at...), and then a loving roundhouse kick to the head (WHY AREN'T YOU GETTING THIS). 1 Quote Link to comment
