Professions

I believe this would be more clear if presented this way.

MmedAN

so as to better distinguish the 2 words.

I still don't have enough points to review teasers, and I'm not expecting points from this, but when I was rating teasers I found a duplicate. Teasers #28888 and #28499 are almost identical- even in the title. They are both submitted by different people so it seems kind of obvious that it's a duplicate.

Where am I?
Maybe the author could try to make the riddle flow a little bit better. Either change the grammar/puncuation or try rhyme.
I like it though.

Underwater
The riddle states "using no types of equipment" but a glass could be considered "equipment"
Instead it could read.."using no type of special breathing equipment/apperatus"

These posts are read. Just because there isn't a response to them, doesn't mean they aren't being noticed or ignored.

The editors do appreciate the help.

You're doing a fine job! Keep up the good work.

This teaser needs a better explanation of the answer before I will accept it.

Monk

This is what we like to call a "Shaggy Dog Story" Is this really a teaser? I'm not sure I know. Maybe it needs to go to Wacka?

It's fun though.

The Sphinx's Riddle

Yes it's a Harry Potter riddle, but it's not currently posted, and it's a great example of a really good riddle. As long as J.K. Rowling is given credit I have no problem adding it. Unless that breaks some kind of rule.

I enjoy pre-reviewing some of the teasers waiting for approval, but I would like to suggest we be given more options for feedback at that time.

1. Allow us to comment whether or not we believe the teaser is in the correct category.

2. Allow us to add a few brief comments.

Examples of comments we might leave: too obscure, leave out word #3 but rest of teaser is great, not enough clues given, riddle is too short and/or vague or even HUH? for those we can't even figure out even after reading the answer.

Thank you for considering...

You should post that in the bugs/requests forum, scallio.

Also, this topic is used for the comments also. If you wish to remain anonymous about your comments you can always PM an editor about your concerns as well. This has been suggested before, and it was stated that comments are for the Editors only and not for reviewers.

Also, when you get 2000 points there is another topic within the "High Scores" that has much more activity than this topic gets about teasers. Feel free to post your concerns about a teaser here in this topic. The editors do in fact take time to read this topic and the other one each day and take in consideration about the concerns and suggestions on a teaser.

Thanks - Suni

The correction for teaser PACHINKO should be rejected. Thus is was made before the rule was put in place and should not be changed.
