sorry @Deusovi I'd missed you editing your answer! Nicely done on getting it :)

also, what did you think of the format? I tried to cram as many layers of puzzles into a single image as I could (hence terming it "Density") - constructive feedback is more than welcomed before I start drafting the sequel

Q: How can I find the least number of candies in a box when they cannot be seen?

Chris Steinbeck BellI've been going in circles with this question which belongs to certainty about something. The problem is as follows: A porcelain jar is filled with a set of sphere candies. The baker made them in a peculiar condition, so that one half of the ball shaped candy has a color different from ...

and, it's probably not one of those words... none of the meanings really seem to map?
 
@Avi No comment on any of those guesses
In the future, I would recommend you have an explanation of the wordplay as well
 
Avi
Well, I was just going through all the letters within the words you gave
rearranged them with max length 4, and checked if they were in the dictionary
finally, I checked the definitions if any matched "not end", "not", "ends end", or "end", but none seemed to fit the criteria
 
@Avi It’s not enough to just guess the solution, you’d need a full explanation on how it fits both the definition and wordplay parts
 
Avi
Therefore it's more likely that the wordplay causes other letters beyond s, n, t, d, o, e to appear in the solution
That attempt was intended to find a definition from which I could deduce the wordplay, but unfortunately it didn't seem to work
 
I know you’re trying your best :)
 
Avi
7:01 PM
2 more hours till hint? O.o
 
Maybe, we’ll see if anyone makes significant progress toward finding the solution
@Avi also, since you seem to be really interested in CCs, here’s a shameless plug for Omega Krypton’s chatroom, where we also have a CCCC but significantly easier/more straightforward
 
Avi
waiting for access to his room, but in the meantime I have a comment on his latest color puzzle
I think it was intentional for him to use cyan, red, and yellow for the three colors, because the first letters spell CRY, which is exactly how i feel right now :(
 
@Avi Aww, are you ok? Do you need a hug?
 
Avi
No, I need someone to solve my riddle D:
Then I can actually post a thorough explanation of everything, since there are not going to be any more hints
 
@Avi Maybe try setting a bounty on it? That would at least encourage more participation with it, and hopefully someone will come along with the correct answer
 
Avi
7:10 PM
Will do
can you do italics in the bounty message?
 
yes
 
Avi
what do you call PSE members?
is there a specific term or do you just say PSE members
 
"bunch of weirdos" works. ;)
I usually just go with PSE members, or Puzzlers.
 
“Fellow puzzlers” works pretty well imo, but it’s totally up to you what you want to include in your message
 
Avi
That should get someone's attention - 500 points bounty posted
 
7:16 PM
@Avi Wow, going all in huh? Bold move, hope it pays off :)
 
Avi
hopefully
 
500? O_o
 
Avi
otherwise I'll look down on y'all

Q: The sad story of a former model

JS1A long time ago, I used to be a model, Even though I was a bit thick boned, I'd dress in casual clothes like everyone else, I could have been a thousand different things, I was way ahead of my time, It pains me to think I should have been a singer instead, Nowadays, I'm not as mobile as I used...

Q: The Question to the Answer

DraakhondInspired by a recent puzzle that was solved by nobody, I came up with this one that can really be solved by someone. No, that is not the solution. It can be found by anyone. No, no, that is not the solution either. This is not helping. Just read the question carefully and let me know what you thi...

 
Avi
Hopefully the answer to the last one isn't "the answer to the question.", because that would be sooooo cliche
 
8:40 PM
Not suitable for PSE, but here's a puzzle I just posted to Facebook (where most or all of you can't see it, so I'm posting it here rather than linking to it):
 
9:08 PM
(Not suitable for PSE because it requires knowledge that the vast majority of people on PSE don't have.)
 
I'm sensing a theme...
 
Avi
9:21 PM
problem solving?
or is the answer PSE
 
9:44 PM
@msh210 Is the puzzle about finding a common word?
 
10:10 PM
@msh210 Whereas the people here will have that knowledge?
(I see a couple of things that might be country-specific, though not to the same country.)
 
@Wolff not exactly. But the various pictures have something in common
@GarethMcCaughan not more than the people on PSE will. I posted it here nonetheless because of the looser requirements of chat
 
Avi
10:40 PM
Save Wolff the heartache and solve this puzzle!
He doesn't want to wait 7 days for an answer
 
It's more of a headache.
 
Avi
xD
 
I still can't believe it's not about Charon who sells transport to Hell.
 
Avi
that transport one is a bit funky

Q: Logic Grid Puzzle Car Wash

Erin Help! I've been looking at this puzzle for some time now and I'm stuck!

 
Avi
10:43 PM
It's more about a mode of transport that could potentially send you to Hell if you're unlucky
than a direct transport to hell
in any case, the "spectres" hint should've been straightforward
 
Anything that smashes into you can send you to Hell. :-)
 
Avi
correct, and if you're riding in something and it crashes, it can also send you to Hell
the key of that hint is more about "transport sells"
there are not that many modes of transportation which require money
in any case, I'm going home
as long as I don't get sent to Hell on the way, hopefully somebody will answer by the end of the week and I can verify
 
Didn't know you weren't home
 
Avi
<3
 
Well, safe trip!
