[Edit: Rules have since changed, please ignore this post]

Here the sum of all what has been posted.

Pat is advocating an Extra-Lenient category (only rules 1,4 & 5 apply).
Therfore I've collated the list as follows:

Puzzle#ID#PatP/F#TarekP/F(Cat/Point)#Tarek_JF>=
7...2......1..9.6..8.4..2....6....5.9.......1.3....7....2..6.9..4.7..8......3...6#tarek001#P#F(7.1)#0

[Edit: Rules have since been changed, so please ignore this post]

I've changed the rules as per Pat's suggestion in the corresponding swordfish thread.

Checking puzzles goes in sequence through the rules, reporting the 1st error encountered. If no errors were encountered then it passes the category specified.

The rules have been re-ordered so as to satisfy Pat's rules. (Rules 1-3 in the current rule list).

Anything that Fails rules 4-7 or that PASSES all rules should be considered in Pat's list.

Anything that passes point 5 will get the (number of Jellyfish at least needed)

#Puzzle#ID#TarekP/F(Cat/Point)#Tarek_JF>=

As the process of rating is electronically done, I wouldn't mind if anyone would DUMP entries in this thread to check....

The best way to dump puzzles would be
Code: Select all
81-character_line_puzzle,Poster(No other identifier)

Example:
7...2......1..9.6..8.4..2....6....5.9.......1.3....7....2..6.9..4.7..8......3...6,tarek
7...6......3..1.8..2.7..6....8....4.1.......3.9....2....6..8.1..5.2..7......7...8,tarek

to mirror the changes in the rules for the swordfish collection, here are the updated rules
Code: Select all
Rules:
1. Valid vanilla 9*9 sudoku
2. NEEDS a Jellyfish to solve after applying the following set of techniques:
   2.1. Singles (Hidden/Naked)
   2.2. Box-Line/Line-Box interactions
   2.3. Subsets (doubles,triples,quads) (Hidden/Naked)
   2.4. X-Wing
   2.5. Swordfish 
3. Solved using the following set of techniques:
   3.1. Singles (Hidden/Naked)
   3.2. Jellyfish (JF)
4. Jellyfish needed (Point 2) >= Jellyfish needed (Point 3), achieved electronically as:
   4.1. batches of JF needed (Pont 2) >= batches of JF needed (Point 3)
   4.2. (If 4.1. result is "=") Total Possible JF (Point 2) >= Total Possible JF (Point 3)
5. Symmetric (I-VII)
6. Symmetrically Minimal
7. NEEDS a Jellyfish to solve after applying the following set of techniques:
   7.1. Singles (Hidden/Naked)
   7.2. Box-Line/Line-Box interactions
   7.3. Subsets (doubles,triples,quads) (Hidden/Naked)
   7.4. X-Wing
   7.5. Finned X-Wing (incl. Sashimi)
   7.6. Simple Colouring
   7.7. XYZ-Wing
   7.8. XY-Wing
   7.9. Swordfish
   7.10. Finned Swordfish (incl. Sashimi)
   7.11. Uniqueness (1-4)
   7.12. Empty Rectangle
   7.13. BUG+1

--Puzzles will be checked against the sequence of rules starting from 1 & ending at 7.
--Checking will stop when a puzzle fails to satisfy a ceratin rule.
--Each Puzzle will acquire a Score equal to the highest rule being checked against.
--if a puzzle passes all rules (1-7) then it will score an "8"

Score interpretaion:
Score = 1 ==> Invalid puzzle
Score = 2 ==> Requires other than a Jellyfish to solve
Score > 2 ==> Requires a Jellyfish to solve
Score > 3 ==> Pure Jellyfish (Pat's Extra Lenient criteria)
Score > 4 ==> Pure Jellyfish (Tarek's Lenient criteria but with Symmetry & Minimality not obligatory)
Score > 5 ==> Pure Jellyfish (Tarek's Lenient criteria with Minimality not obligatory)
Score > 6 ==> Pure Jellyfish (Tarek's Lenient criteria)
Score > 7 ==> Pure Jellyfish (Tarek's Rigorous criteria)


Here is the list of all puzzle in this thread(v5.0):

    most puzzles will of course need just one Jellyfish;
    2 Jellyfish may be needed in puzzles 1,6,11.

      latest Jellyfish in this collection
      is seen in puzzle 6, at 55 --
      Code: Select all
       8 . 5 | . . . | 7 6 3
       1 . 7 | 6 3 5 | 4 8 .
       . 6 3 | . 7 8 | 5 . 1
      -------+-------+------
       7 3 8 | . 6 4 | 1 . 5
       . 1 2 | 5 8 7 | 6 3 .
       5 . 6 | 3 . . | . 7 .
      -------+-------+------

       3 7 4 | . 5 6 | 2 1 .
       6 5 . | . . 3 | . 4 7


      -- but of course you could add r9c5=2
      and thus show a late Jellyfish at 56 !

JF>=: Number of jellyfish AT LEAST NEEDED to solve

5 posts above, I wrote:how many Jellyfish & how can you bypass them ???
The answer is 2 (manual check), you can't easily bypass them easily as the puzzle scores an 8 (Rigorous)

    most puzzles need just one Jellyfish;
    2 Jellyfish needed in puzzles 1,11
      but puzzle 1 is not-very-pure ( as tarek pointed out ) --
      needed only 1 Jellyfish when the intermediate methods were allowed,
      now needs 2 merely because they were disabled.
