It’s the festive season again (it doesn’t seem that long since the last one!) and time for me to offer my thanks to many people.
Firstly, to all those who gave a donation towards the hosting costs for this site. Your generosity has enabled me to pay for the hosting for the next two years and there is enough left in the kitty to cover a third year and/or any unforeseen expenditure. I would also like to thank Neil Wellard, the site’s founder and former administrator, for footing the bill, out of his own pocket, for the first six years of the site’s existence.
Secondly, my thanks to the members of the Fifteensquared team who have spent time and effort preparing the multitude of posts that have been published during the year. I am sure that your input to the site has been much appreciated by many people.
Next I would like to say thanks to all who have posted comments on the site. These make interesting reading and give a cross-section of views about each puzzle. I am pleased that, by and large, this has been done in a polite and friendly manner. I know that many setters appreciate the feedback that the comments give so please keep posting them.
Finally, having mentioned the setters, I would like to thank them, and their editors, for the many hours of enjoyment, and occasional frustration, that their puzzles have given us this year. Long may you continue to give the mental challenges, and stimulation, that your puzzles provide.
Seaonal felicitations to all bloggers, commenters, lurkers, setters and solvers (and everyone else) wherever you are.
