Since discovering calcudoku, I find sudoku very tame and relatively uninteresting. I don't think I would ever bother doing one if it wasn't worth points.

DITTO!!! We did Sudokus in Geometry class, and the "hard" one took me less than 8 minutes (I timed it). I do rather enjoy that the sudokus on this site are more difficult than most others, but they still are rather boring

In my opinion they are a little tedious because the medium sudoku has always 24 given numbers (since the beginning) in the same way that the easy sudoku has always 32 given numbers. In fact, the medium could be considered easy and the easy trivial. However they are relaxing (though you do not earn many points for them ) when you have extra time, and they undoubtedly require some time (after all they are 9x9's ). I suggest to improve the level going to medium and difficult (with 24/23 and 22/21 given numbers) with a punctuation of 2 and 3 points, for instance.
