Mechanical Forex Crossword Puzzles : Now With Additional No-Cheating Implementations :o)

As you know, during the past month I have been running a weekly contest in which whoever solves my weekly forex crossword puzzle within the smallest time frame wins a 20 USD prize. However during the past few weeks people were “cheating” as they figured out the crossword first before actually starting the timer and inputting the values (reason why times were very low) as the clues were displayed before the timer was started. From now on I have taken some measures to stop this behavior and make the crossword times much more representative of the time it takes a user to actually finish the crossword puzzle.

The website now only displays the clues until the timer is started and only the FIRST loading of the webpage is eligible for the weekly prize (to avoid people from simply running first the crossword to “get the clues” and then solve it “faster” later on). These measures ensure that people will be able to compete in a fair environment with the timing of the different participants really being representative of the amount of time it takes them to solve the crossword. The solution to last week’s crossword puzzle can be found here.

Remember that there is a 20 USD prize for the person who finishes the crossword puzzle in the smallest amount of time the first time they ever load the page :o) If you want to participate for the weekly prize please do NOT reload or exit the page but simply solve the crossword puzzle. If the page is reloaded or changed you WON’T be eligible for the prize although you will still be able to solve the crossword :o).

Do not try to cheat the puzzle :o) An intelligent script checks many parameters besides your IP to ensure that your timing was genuine and deletes your timing if it detects you cheated. Cheaters will also be banned for receiving any prize in the future.

This interactive crossword puzzle requires JavaScript and a reasonably recent web browser, such as Internet Explorer 5.5 or later, Netscape 7, Mozilla, Firefox, or Safari. If you have disabled web page scripting, please re-enable it and refresh the page. If this web page is saved to your computer, you may need to click the yellow Information Bar at the top of the page to allow the puzzle to load.
