Hello loebjeff, welcome to the forums!

Had a quick look at the page you linked to. First of all, qualify for what? It's not like we're looking for entries for a competition or something... I can only guess what you meant.

Qualify for "providing new advanced technique"? No. All techniques described are basic techniques that have been known longer than this forum has existed.

Qualify for "good source for learning basic techniques"? I'm sorry, have to say no again for three reasons. 1. The techniques are explained in a very complex mathematical way. Real examples are always better. 2. The descriptions are not complete. In your description of "intersection of two groups" (locked candidates), you only describe one case of possible eliminations and don't mention the case where the eliminations happen in the box. 3. Terminology. It has taken the sudoku community a long time to develop standard terminology to make it easier to discuss the subject. Many standardized terms have been found that are now used on most major sudoku sites. Your site uses a different language.

If you want to improve your site, points 1 and 2 are the most important from your visitors point of view. If you want to fix point 3, there's a good dictionary in sudopedia.

You could also expand the list with some more techniques, check out Mike Barker's list for inspiration.
