Indeed. And a 5x5 medium (for example) is like a blip of a puzzle [wink]

Every other Saturday, we have a 15 x 15 puzzle as the extra. I would not add a puzzle on those days.

And I 5x5 medium won't add much to your solving time for the day.

OK. Its not a second 7 x 7 subtraction only puzzle.

You are correct a 5 x 5 medium is a blip.

And I'll be lucky to get 15K by the time Mparisi reaches that mark [blink]
When that comes though, it will be a pretty big milestone for the entire site!

I wasn't aware anything was broken. I like the number of puzzles we have now.

I agree [thumbsup] .......it must be a retired thing that we have the time where as younger people have school and/ or work or housework and have a limited amount of time for other activities ......
however, when I run out of time because of the grandchildren then I just have to leave one or two undone.....it's not like someone is forcing us to do all of the puzzles everyday (is there???)

Well, this time the problem wasn't the "puzzle load" on people (there were discussions about
this in the past, when there were 3 Killer Sudoku puzzles each day for example), but just
the one day with a lot of puzzles (Tuesday), causing the "puzzle bar" to overflow..
