Is incorporating puzz.link, kudamono editor, and other interfaces with error checking planned?

The Penpa integration has been something we have worked on over years, first bringing it into our usual contests, then the daily series, and then moving on to the Expo. All of this was also assisted by the fact that we were already used to working with Swaroop. Assuming the effort and process is similar, incorporating other interfaces isn't a priority at this point. We want to focus on some other areas building on the database aspect of things, and bringing in other features.

Just from trying the first few puzzles, one of the ways to mess up is by defining the wrong "default tool" that is used when you first open the puzzle in Penpa_PLUS_. If you use Penpa_PLUS_ a lot, you know what to do to fix that, but it's still a bit annoying, if you know there would have been a better option. And new users might throw the towel here already, if it is impossible to solve the puzzle with the tool that is given them on default. Don't know what your target audience is, but you probably want to put the bar for accessibility as low as possible.
Just an example (without wanting to blame him, just so you know that I mean): Sams Slitherlink uses coloring as the default tool when it is opened and I think I have seen three more puzzles by now that felt wrong.
But I also have no idea how to "guide" the setter to set up the best available tool as default.

For my own puzzle that I put up for testing, I somehow ended with black numbers as default and was surprised, that the answer check didn't work, until I discovered what was going on. In this case, I don't see a reason why number colors for checking are restricted to green,blue,red.

I'd suggest adding a "No Sudoku" quick-search . For the LMG portal, that is the much more popular option. I really hope you will not encounter the same "flood" of 90% Sudokus though.

We have provided a "Puzzle Excluding Sudoku" under quick-search.

Additionally, we have also provided a mechanism to customize the Expo landing page. Using this, one can hide Sudoku related puzzles if needed.

The "customize" options appear everytime again I enter the front page. Is that the intended behaviour? (Firefox)

No, that is not intentional. We will have this checked.

It's every time I have to log in again, which is everytime I had all browser windows closed (e.g. after system restart). I have not blocked any cookies. Loging out on purpose and loging in again has the same effect (but in this case it is mentioned that all cookies are deleted).

For now, we have disabled the popup for everyone. Of course, the button to customize is available for manually customizing.

Loving Expo so far! Two suggestions:

- A link directly from the expo page to this thread would be good (unless I'm just blind and it's already there).
- Maybe puzzles under review could be removed from the "recent unsolved" list, since they're also not currently solvable.

Suggestion: Remove "Puzzles under review" from the lists of recently published puzzles (all/unsolved). Or at least give them an icon.

Thank you both. Nice suggestion about "Puzzles under review".
For "Recently published puzzles" : We will mark it is broken.
We have removed from "Recently published puzzles (Unsolved)" List.

No, you are right, there is no direct link. We will add.

There is still something wrong with the time measurement I think. Tapa (Windows) by Chiel shows a solving time of 10 hours something for me. I'm almost sure, I have opened and looked at the puzzle on friday or saturday, when I did my first few puzzles. Even if I'm remembering that wrong, I'm sure I did not open it and started the timer around 6am today when I was in deep sleep.

Thanks for removing the puzzles under review from the unsolved list, but it seems they're still counted by the "and N more unsolved puzzles" link. That's probably less critical, but might be confusing.

Yes, there is some display issue whenever the actual time take is more than a day. We have decided not to show timing, if it is more than a day.
