@Deusovi @GarethMcCaughan @GentlePurpleRain @Rubio
Dear respectable mods,
Sorry to bother you all. Is there anyway we can know the busy hours of the site with figures? I mean, is the stats of current in each hour of the day avilable? thanks!
Yours sincerely,
Omega Krypton

by the way, should i add a tag, when it contributes to a very useful hint but not directly to the answer? thanks
 
I think you need to be careful using tags as part of the puzzle. Tags need to work as tags first & foremost (and I say this as someone who used a tag purely for the humour of it once, but has since amended his ways). So if the tag truly applies to the puzzle (and it happens to act as a hint) then sure add it. But if you wouldn't have added it except to provide a hint, then you probably shouldn't.
 
got it, thanks @Alconja
puzzle coming then :)

@OmegaKrypton Surely the diamonds in the ode should be clubs?
 
diamond is fine, youre almost there @MOehm
club is also possible... or maybe better? but you get it anyway @MOehm
 
Oh, I guess I'm still far from the overall answer. (But I think I see where this is going.)
 
maybe part of it, but i bet not all ;)
 
Yes. I've noticed some stuff, but I don't know what to do with it.

@MOehm How's your progress? I'd love to see my puzzle solved... Maybe it's just to enigmatic to get upvotes at this moment when its secret beholds... :)
 
I'm at work right now, where I'm supposed to do some other, less enigmatic stuff occasionally. :) (My experience is that at this hour it is usually rather quiet in PSE. It gets more lively when the US wake up.)
 
yep... should have posted it at a later time... never mind... time proves everything, i hope ;)
@MOehm i see. enjoy :)
 
Silly sleeping Americans.

@OmegaKrypton Okay, now I see where the C comes from, but I think it's one step of indirection too many for a cryptic clue: diamond > carbon > C.
 
yep too indirect, will improve on that next time

Q: Twins. Who are they?

Traxo You can find both in Istanbul, but none in water They are the same size, but one of them is smaller In some fields they can cause confusion But if one grows, it will break the illusion Different names, if called with the tone But probably the same, if carved in stone

This crossword2puzzles idiot needs to stop.
 
It's blatant spam at this point. I'd destroy the account.
...that works too.
 
10:42 PM
Gave an explicit suspension for it as this is not their first time doing this nonsense. If they return thereafter on this or any other account and do it again I’ll suspend for a long time and then delete so their next incarnation starts off unable to post.
