This thread started nicely, but ended causing a headache
My rankings were based on consistancy first, then difficulty second (in an attempt to insure quality of a puzzle)........
Let me take the last puzzle (JPF/Tarek).........
naked doubles were not needed if you spotted the hidden double (in column 7 or box 9)......
Now, the hidden double must have a counterpart (which is a naked triple)...which led to the fact that a the hidden subset can't be constant unless in the context of the superior the counterpart was a naked quad or higher (you can adjust that too)......
The way around this was to say that a hidden subset/naked counterpart are constant.......
In the above puzzle Hidden double/naked triple, but is it ????
Unfortunately not
The hidden double in box 9 uncovers a hidden single in the same box, which means that (in theory) somone may see the combination as a hidden triple.......
That is why on consistancy it scored a 0....
another issue.... the puzzle also can be solved using a swordfish or a jellyfish (buit that didn't go into the equation)..... also Ruud's puzzle #100 can be advanced using UR which kills many other techniques used...
