Why restrict to 1-5 votes?
Basically we are just offering a Yes vote to the variations we like.
If we like most of them, but dislike 2 or 3, then we can vote accordingly? (And vice versa)

I had a word with Serkan and he is what we feel - the difference is very thin between "limiting to 5" and "not limiting at all".

Right now, we are asking vote "upto" 5 variations. One is free to choose less than 5 certainly.
If we don't put a limit and some players start voting for 7 or 8 variations (all Tapa variations are likeable, aren't they :) ), then the importance of their vote will reduce a lot.

Anyway, as I mentioned, we think the difference is really small. We can try our your idea in next poll.

Reminder - Voting closes in another 10 hours, as I post this.

kiwijam meant voting 7-8 variations that people like is identical to voting 2-3 variations that people /don't/ like. So allowing voting more can give people the option to vote for variations they /don't/ want to see in the test, instead of what they want to see.

In Black Hole Tapa, it says Black Holes may touch each other diagonally. Does that mean they cannot touch orthogonally? I feel that's a better way to put it.

Yes you are right, my mistake. I wrote this one as considering the Tapa have just one Black Hole in each row and column, but the actuall puzzle may have more than once. So, Black Holes may touch each other orthogonally and diagonally. I'll rewrite the sentence.

I assume, in the example for Different Tapa, R4C1 should be shaded?

I don't know how to answer Tapa-Like Loop. For example, if there is an answer key in Row 2 of the example in IB, which will be right, 212 or 23?

For the 4x4 tapa, if there is an arrow at the left of the grids, do I enter the number of cells from just the leftmost grid, or from the two grids all the way across?

Each of the grid will have own arrows. So for your example, just for the lefmost grid.

We missed the exception of this one in the IB. We'll update of the IB and we'll add it to PB with example to avoid any confussion. Thanks for your remark.

The answer format will be: "Write the lengths of the separate line segments lying towards the marked rows/columns."
