Here is a puzzle that needs no chains.

It is complicated for me, when I use patterns.

I post this for people, like myself, who like puzzles that do not need chains.

Anyone who has such a cool puzzle, please post it.



Edited to expand: Solutions for any puzzles posted here that a chain solves in ONE chain are very welcome.
I will probably not understand the chain, I enjoy the fact that a puzzle can be solved with a step.

There are other ways to express your point of view in a more professional way than to personalize things in a thread title wapati.........

You run the risk of being the victim of your own stunts....:(

Tarek, should the starter of a thread be required to change the title of the thread to reflect the replies?

Wapati, I believe tarek's point was that mature people don't use titles that would need to be changed.

Should the starter of a thread be required to change the name of the thread depending on the response?

Any of you people on subject?

Have a faint clue?

Ronk suggested that I SHOULD change my original subject beacause there were too many chains posted in mt thread.

I don't know, use or understand chains.

I am being annoyed again?

? He want's me to change a "title", if I have a clue why you want me censored.

SIR wapati will be changed to wapati, TITLE gone..

RW, you want anyone else to control the subject line of your posts?

Just to ask, RW, anyone except ronk asked to control your subject lines?

I wrote "I think you should" ... not "SHOULD". It was an opinion, a suggestion you were free to implement or not. You did not, which is fine with me.

In the next post ravel explained there was no contradiction between 1) a requirement of posted puzzles not needing chains, and 2) the presentation of solutions using chains ... so I acquiesced.

Apparently an explicit statement of agreement, which I'm making with this post, was also required.

Well, actually, you never had a point, ravel helped you to see that.

You are welcome to comment but you started doing so when the moderator was announced to have retired. It seemed to me as though
your britches were overfull. In a few places.

Posting some puzzles would be good.

A faint clue.

Wapati,
I think maybe I have a faint clue. I think your arguments are logical and the responses to them off your points.

But it's the month of Scorpio, known to esoteric astrologers as the Battleground.
So one can expect flak to fly around for a few weeks yet.
