Hmm...I'm stuck except for some pieces on the edges. Any tips?

When he posted that forum # 104, he was asking for puzzles like these that require massive guessing. He got one.
#3: Nancy Snyder (naneki) on Jun 14, 2008 [HINT]
It's very symmetrical..once you get the pattern going it's very easy :)
#4: Rea Aksglæde Karlsen (Rea) on Jun 15, 2008
Adam it does not require guessing.

Puzzle that require guessing say sow after the titel.

Besides no guessing required was on of the conditions.
#5: Rea Aksglæde Karlsen (Rea) on Jun 15, 2008 [HINT]
use color logic and work from the corners to the middle. Thats the best hint I can give.
#6: Eric Francis (airdrik) on Jun 15, 2008 [HINT]
Thanks for the challenge. The symmetry involved means you only need to really solve 1/4 of the puzzle. That said, that was a fairly difficult 10x10 block to solve.

Eh, I didn't like it. I didn't feel like going through the logic just to find a pattern. I guess I'm just in a mood. Sorry.

ive been trying to get it started but no luck.. i guess im going to have to print this out and think it out.
#9: Rea Aksglæde Karlsen (Rea) on Jun 18, 2008
bionerd that okay, i don't like it that much my self
#10: Bionerd (nieboo) on Jun 19, 2008
Sorry Rea, I'm usually quite positive on all puzzles, I think I was in a mood yesterday.
Don't listen to me.

I'm generally not crazy about pattern puzzles, but it was interesting to try to find a logical way to solve this. Question, though... is it possible to solve it without knowing it's symmetrical? I got stuck and finally just had to decide that half the clues in any given row belong to half the puzzle and no more and the other half belong to the other half (if that makes sense). Then I was able to work it out.
#13: Adam Nielson (monkey) on Jun 19, 2008
I agree with Bionerd (#7)
#14: Mark Conger (aruba) on Jun 26, 2008
I was able to do it without guessing and without assuming the solution was symmetrical. So the solution is really unique.
#15: Merili (merilinnuke) on Jun 29, 2008 [HINT]
I liked it. I used color logic and didn't consider the symmetry. It was quite a struggle, but that's exactly what I expected it to be. So thank you Rea :)
#16: Rea Aksglæde Karlsen (Rea) on Jun 29, 2008
you welcome Merili. Im glad someone likes it
#17: Jodi Olson (Jodi145) on Oct 29, 2009 [HINT]
Not a terrible puzzle, it became very tedious solving through logic though. Intuition based on the color patterns worked better for me.
#18: nounours (nounours) on Jun 11, 2010
boring
#19: Kristen Vognild (kristen) on Jan 22, 2011
I enjoyed solving, and it didn't take me long at all. I guess I just think in patterns. :)
#20: Raymond Fuller (rfuller4) on Mar 31, 2013
Not logical at all - intuitive, yes, but not logical.
#21: BlackCat (BlackCat) on Aug 30, 2016
These kinds of puzzle are not fun for me so I didn't even try it. Thanks anyway for the effort.
#22: Kathy Roth (clyde) on Mar 31, 2017
The pleasure in this was not the emergence of the pattern, but the logic involved in trying to solve it. Also, it made me stop and think about symmetry. I tried to avoid using symmetry to solve it, and it is still solvable. I have to admit that I checked avoiding using symmetry in a few places and then used it to finish it off. Very interesting. Glad it was not a 60x60.

Didn't do. Really dislike this type of one-dot-at-a-time puzzle.
