What is the reasoning behind allowing coloring for some puzzles but not others? Why not let the solver decide when they want to color?
Surface coloring is turned on for Odd/Even and No Three in a Row, but not for anything else. I routinely color, for instance, in solving extra regions; since this isn't allowed, it's hampering my solve.

Wow . That was a pretty intense contest. Had to solve out of my skin to even manage that score. Diagonal 9x9 was absolutely brutal and staved me off from finishing it for an eternity. I felt completely stuck not even sure where to guess. It was a relief to finish it finally with a wild guess.

Thanks to Kumaresan, Hemant and Arun for the really nerve wracking round :). My favourites are Quadruple (9x9) and Thermo (9x9).
