Hey Woot, have you emailed the winners for 53-down yet? I can't stop F5'ing to see if I won, and am now wondering if I failed to follow directions on the email formatting (pretty sure it was right, though).

Nice answer; Less obvious. Could be a winner! Good luck, sir/madam.

I had teens. But I'm probably slow on that one.

Or "jerks," or possibly "emoes," if that's the plural.

Nice, I said 'child' real quick.. then thought of 'youth'. If it's one of those two, I'd bet 'youth'.

Don't think so. They just reply back with a small congrats note and a link to the goods if you won.

Stop that. They specifically asked people not to submit a guess until the clue is out. While guessing here isn't submitting, it still seems to go against the idea.

mmm.. as I read it, they specifically DO ask people to speculate: 'Feel free to share your theories, semi-completed puzzles, and other ruminations right here on this comment thread'

    Codswallop. Since every square in an American-style crossword puzzle is checked (ie crossed by another word), there will inevitably come a time when we'll have at least one word fully filled in on the grid without having yet seen the clue. Long before that, there will be spaces where only one word* can reasonably fit. Are we to refrain from "guessing" then?

    Of course, if you do share a guess, and someone who sees your guess is quicker on the "send" button once the clue is posted, you've cheated yourself out of a BoC. Too bad for you. But you get to look smart on the forum, so there's that.

    *Or phrase, or initialism, or whatever. "Word" in the loosest sense.

    My work here is done. Pedant-man, AWAAYYY!!!

    If people weren't posting when they won, we'd have pages of conspiracy theories and 'bot' speculation. xD

    It's exciting to get in when the odds are seriously so against you and where else can we post up our excitement and joy than here on the woot forums??

    Too many to list... Woot on, Wayne.
