 Today's user puzzle
Today's user generated puzzle was a beautiful pattern, although it was not actually that difficult to solve. Thank you "mikas"

I agree. There was a very pleasing symmetry to the puzzle and a nice flow to the solution. Thank you mikas.

^ What they said [smile]

The method needed to solve this addition-only puzzle reminds me of the rather different kind of puzzle known as a nonogram. But unlike a nonogram, which usually requires a lot of steps "edging in on" the right lengths of figures in rows and columns, this puzzle permits you to determine the right numbers/combinations right away. Its "flow", as paulv66 puts it, gives you a very soothing feeling of remaining in control all way through – which is just what everybody needs at this challenging time of COVID-19-induced isolation ("social distancing").

Many thanks to mikas for the puzzle [thumbsup]

Thank you mikas (very original puzzle) [thumbup].
And thank you, bram, let's wait that the global damage of this virus be minimum and that after some time we can remember all this simply like a bad dream.
