Is anything wrong with "Not Space?"

Start talking, a sensationalist. If you talk it better, walk it better; you better back your * up, with more than good hooks while your under the gun!

You can now see why he has collected 3 negative karma points can't you! Probably one of the largest negative ratings accrued on Braingle!

Thank you jazz! Now back on topic:

Does my new 'Explosion' have any problems? I specified a video game this time.

"55 Cents" is a dupe of #234.

Are we supposed to post teasers that have problems in this forum or the one in High Scorers?

You can post in either topic Solar. This topic is for those who don't have access to the High Scorers forum yet. You can review teasers once you get 500 points, but you cannot access High Scorers until you move up to 2000 points, so this topic is for those who are eligible to review, but can't access High Scorers yet.

The tools of the mind can be wrongly used, but the mind possesses no wrong tools.

Could "one hundred and one" be considered an answer for How High? ?

I tend to put 'accept with corrections' for teasers that don't have directions, like 'Verizon'

It has the rebus, but there's nothing else at all.

Am I right by saying 'accept with corrections'?

High Scorers if possible, but new users not accesing that forum can still post here. Hopefully, we keep an eye on both. Thanks for the assistance folks! 'Bo

High scorers sounds cool. Does that tell us about the teasers? Or about the players? And how might one find High Scorers?

Caberet, the High Scorers forum is for those members who have attained 2,000 points or more on site. There is a topic just like this one where members who are reviewing teasers can post their thoughts on why a teaser should be rejected or to post needed corrections (such as spelling, incorrect info, etc). Both this topic and the one in High Scorers used to be very active, but both have seemed to go dormant for the past few months or more.

High Scorers also has other topics such as discussions and games.

Now, as far as this topic is concerned, I would love to see it brought back to life because it was an added assist to the Editors when we would see that the reviewers were rejecting a teaser in the queue or were marking it as needing corrections. Since there is no space allotted for listing those corrections, this topic was opened as a means to post the corrections the reviewers felt were needed. I know that I, for one, am guilty of not posting here often enough to thank you all for your help, but I'm putting this topic on my "watch list" so that I will not forget again.

As Bo said in an earlier post above, "Thanks for the assistance folks!"

SMILE and people will wonder what you are up to!

Teaser #49024, Astronomy Club Reunion needs its logic grid to be corrected. In the first section, the name Sutter was substituted for Sculptor.

I would also recommend listing the states along with the cities in the intro. Also for our members that aren't familiar with American service organizations, listing this info in the intro rather than as a hint would seem to feel more inclusive.

It's a perfect logic problem otherwise. There's not a single duplicate clue - a very admirable achievement indeed!

Robot Probability has problems because 4/7 is not exactly 57% but a little more. 4/7 is much more simple.
(This teaser is in review.)

Keep at it, it took a while for mine to start getting accepted and I still get rejected most of the time.

I wish I could sleep... but my mind starts to wander, and well, basically, one sheep, two sheep, cow, turtle, duck, Ol McDonald had a farm... HEEEY Macarena!!!

I'm not sure where to post this. I think this topic is the closest to being the right spot. I can't correct my own teasers, but I found a problem in #51015, The Man With The Axe. I used "peddle" when it should have been "pedal". I've only spoken English for five decades. Give me time; I'll get it eventually.

If anyone wants some good karma for correcting a teaser, this is an opportunity.

I am embarrassed to say I see another grammatical error in one of my teasers. The Riddle, "Ticked Off" currently in review uses the word "bidden" when the proper conjugation is "bided". I do not believe this has a Teaser # yet, because it is in review.
