We use a lot of abbreviations to describe hints/solutions. So I was wondering if it would be helpful to anyone new to the site if we explained what those abbreviations meant in the FAQ perhaps. I am thinking of:#2: Valerie Mates (valerie) on Apr 13, 2022
EL = edge logic
IEL = internal edge logic
CL = color logic
LL = line logic, or proceed forward from this point with line logic solving
R = row
C = column
So R5C9 would mean row 5, column 9 cell.
Good idea -- I added it to the very end of the "Solving Puzzles on This Site" section of the FAQ.#3: David Bouldin (dbouldin) on Feb 25, 2023
(I haven't checked the FAQ in years. There's probably lots there that is out-of-date.)
Are there other abbreviations that should be there too? I spent ages puzzling over "WOT" one time when people were debating whether a puzzle was one and everybody but me seemed to know the abbreviation (it's "waste of time"), but I'm not keen on adding that one to the list.
LMAO = logic might adjust outcome#4: Valerie Mates (valerie) on Feb 26, 2023
