Soon someone will solve the 10 millionth puzzle on the site [woot]

I'm trying to think of something special to do for the occasion, any suggestions??


Edit (September 2016)

the something special was a special booklet with puzzles for points...:

[thumbsup] [thumbsup] (I am very happy to say that from those 10 million I have sent (as of today) 53,235, terrible persistance I am affraid [confused])

More "seriously", four suggestions:

A 17x17 puzzle with some 30/45 days to solve.

You can make a gift of 5/10 points (flat) to everyone :-) :-) (25 being generous).

You can link to some "fashion" video with numbers, a numerical puzzle, etc. [smile].

Finally, how about composing a poem [thumbup]?, so we can appreciate better your human side, and not only the cyborg.

I like the idea of a special eternal puzzle.

Eternal meaning that people who find this site in the future can still do it and turn it in for points. You have done this for all the user created puzzles, and the two special Holiday puzzles.

I also like the idea of learning more about your human side.

What I have lined up now is a booklet with 10 puzzles,

4x4, 5x5, 6x6, 7x7, 8x8, 9x9, 10x10, 12x12, 15x15, 17x17

each puzzle is worth points [woot]

are there any artists among the Calcudoku community?

it would be great if there could be something cool on the cover [love]

Why not a picture of the Milky Way as there are many more stars than there puzzles........but the underlying "suggestion" would be that one day there will be as many puzzles solved! [smile]

Nice idea, thanks [thumbup]

I'm now thinking some image with 10 million stars/dots in it.

:-)

Edit: this is not really possible!

At a normal print density of 300 dots per inch, and a practical printing area of say 160 by 230 mm,
I can just about fit 5 million dots, but that would be a black block (!)

As awesome as that looks, it wouldn't be possible:
If you try to place all the fives in the 5x5 puzzle, they can't be in the top left 3x3 cages, since those are already part of the 4x4. But then there isn't enough room left to fit all of them.
Maybe if you make them overlap less, of put them in a different pattern, it would be possible.
