The (earlier?) deadline of PR surprised me a lot. I know I am stupid and reading instructions is the hardest puzzle for me, but usually the contest is open until morning (in Europe). Besides that, I believe that one hour would be enough for me (as the contest page informed me that the competition will be over in 60 minutes), but nevermind, maybe next time...

With about 30 minutes to go, it didn't let me start the test :(
I thought you could start from when the test had <90 mins to go - and still get 90 mins for the test.
Oh well. Next season :(

Sad to miss out on your participation in PR1.

The contest timings were from Friday 0000 to Monday 2359 IST. You could have seen the exact times on the contest page. If there was confusion it was not intended. However, based on the above feedback, we shall be having the future contests for SM and PR open till 12pm IST on Tuesday (extra 12 hours) - So you can start the test till 1159 IST / 0629 GMT, and still get full 90 minutes.

And, you are welcome to participate in the next tests in February, instead of waiting till next season.

... But even with easy puzzles, I believe one can still make interesting puzzles. Some of the puzzles are really repetitive (those I mentioned); I'm pretty sure it's still possible to tweak them to be much less repetitive, while staying easy and interesting.

Thanks for the suggestions! We will try to make the future episodes more interesting and less repetitive.

 What was your opinion of the distribution of easy/hard puzzles? Just right
 What did you think about the puzzle quality of the test? Fairly Nice
 Which set of puzzles did you like the most? Loop Finder
 What was your opinion about the answer key extraction? Answer keys could have been better
 Of the puzzles you solved/attempted, how well did the point values reflect the difficulty? Most puzzles were worth the right amount
 What was your opinion of the booklet formatting and printing? Just right


This was my first puzzle test on LMI and I really enjoyed it.Thanks to Rohan for an enjoyable,easy set that was encouraging to a beginner.
As to the answer keys,they were quite confusing.I made three answer key errors and entering them,in general,took away a lot of time.To be more specific,the answer key format for Tents atleast, wasnt optimal,in my opinion.

Apart from that,I really enjoyed the test.
Thank you:)
