Frequently Asked Questions

How do I add an avatar to my account?

All players are welcome to add an avatar to their account, simply by clicking the default blue-and-white image at the top-right of every page (when you're logged in), or you can click here. This will take you to a library of available avatar images which you can use and swap-out anytime you like. If you prefer to upload your own personal avatar, you may do so by clicking "Settings" at the top right, then "Edit Avatar".

Your avatar image will appear whenever you're logged in, and other players will be able to see it in the chat room, on your profile page, on the forum, and whenever you break a new record time.

I work for a newspaper or magazine. Can we syndicate your puzzles?
