Why are you reporting this puzzle?

This seems to have been taken near Cleveland, Ohio.
It is not seawater, but lake water.
It is near the Coast Guard Station.

I wish I knew how this puzzle was shared around the world so much that the puzzle site became so widely used.

I have no insider knowledge, but everything I said below is evident in the changes they've made over the last couple of years. The tech nerds who were trying to run Jigidi had no business acumen at all (although for a long time they made the common mistake of thinking that business is easy, anybody can do it [but why aren't we making a profit?]). They attracted investors who took steps to get Jigidi in shape. They eliminated all the nudity, and purged all the old racy stuff they could find. Then they cut everyone back on multiple screen names/personalities and most recently they "revamped" the puzzle system as I said below. I started out as a lawyer long ago but very quickly left the practice of law and joined the business world and learned from some great mentors and through a lot of experience. So my observations are my own, I respect good business decisions, and I have adjusted myself to the "new Jigidi."

@patsquire Where do you get the ideas you have about TPTB and the changes at Jigidi? Anything concrete?

patsquire

You are right Irene, we'd been hovering in the lower 1080s on comments, but there is this sudden flurry of 14 since yesterday. I'll delete some of mine now and leave a couple up for another day or so, then purge the rest. If we all do that we'll be back to a more workable level.

@CJ45
Hi Clive, let me repeat that Ank does indeed know that you came back to Jigidi only because of her and she appreciates that very much. She acknowledged that and her affection for you in her last-but-one comment on her 'Keep on Smiling' puzzle, saying that if her cancer had one positive result, it was that it brought you back to Jigidi. That's quite a statement! You must feel very honoured.
We all hope that she's responding to the treatment for her lung cancer, but she still has quite a way to go and is still struggling at the moment. Fingers crossed please. She needs our virtual support.

patsquire

Clive old buddy, I once posted a 1:04. I am reminded of it every time I solve because it's right there under the whiz-bang times of old. Nowadays I'm always around the 2:00 mark. Ten seconds either way.

Is this our fault? No, I don't think so. TPTB that are running Jigidi now are businessmen who have told the tech nerds who started it that it's time to make Jigidi pay. To put money in their pockets, to pay back the investors who came on board a while ago and started changing things. All the changes have been to the detriment of us users.

Puzzles come clumped all in a pile in the middle. They used to come spread out so you could see a lot more pieces. Now you have to move them apart to see them, so solving times are slower. The magnetic attraction of pieces jumping into place has been weakened. You can drop a piece close to its matching piece, and nothing happens. You practically have to put the pieces right together before they'll join.

They've done this because slowing down play means users will stay on Jigidi longer. They charge advertisers by the amount of time players are here. Our solving times slow down, their profits go up. It's all valid business conduct. Somebody has to suffer and believe me, we users are the very least of their concerns. We're hooked!

Thank you for this lovely picture, however, I don't see the connection to the way of the Millennium as regards to finding the geocache in Gnosal GB.

Thanks, @nanb I did see that link. The change I wish they would do is to make a two-finger touch open or shrink the play area, like on the app. If you like to make the leaderboard, like I do, those extra seconds it takes to do the plus and minus make a difference. At least now I know how to review the final puzzle image without wasting time by pushing P. That is helpful to know.

@fridaynightfunkinfan I told them I would be happy to pay more than the ad-free fee I am already paying. I have had hundreds of hours of enjoyment from Jigidi. I'm just so surprised at the low per cent of people that use the app on the iPad. I'll keep working on getting used to the website.

dotshell

@nanab just to let you know Jigidi has explained that lack of ad-free users of the iPad app and limited resources is causing Jigidi to eliminate the app.

ladywil2

@patsquire I tried to remove, it did not work

RandomWorship

This was my suggestion nanab - in order to reach a lot of people, given how many folks have commented on this puzzle, and follow it, over the years. (❛ᴗ❛)

RandomWorship

Hi Frozen Sea Water puzzle solvers and friends! It was me who suggested that Dotty share this news here, as I know this puzzle reaches a lot of people, and that some/many of those folks might also be iPad Jigidi app users. If you are, or know someone who is, please share this news and contact Jigidi to let them know how the decision will impact on you. (❛ᴗ❛)

Merrie, I used to think it was some rope (for tying ships to the stanchions on shore) tossed out for having too much tar on it. But that's unlikely. It could be a bush, perhaps an evergreen bush or young tree...

Welcome to the most famous puzzle by far on Jigidi! If you catch the fever you could help us push the count over the top of 2 million.
Those were heady times in mid-2012, when the count was 999,98- and growing several times a minute. We were solving nonstop, each hoping to be the "one" who got the magic 1,000,000. (Missed it by 4)

Happy anniversary, Joan. Solve 1,780,400.

Dear Syke,

Best regards,

Actually - I don't think you need to worry about the number of comments anymore - since Jigidi introduced the "load more comments" button at the bottom of the page. This feature displays a certain number of recent comments (I don't know how many), and hides the rest behind that button. You can display them of course, but then that could well slow down the loading of the page....... (❛ᴗ❛)

Do I get a prize for being the slowest solver EVER? LOL, just kidding. This puzzle is beautiful! It reminds me of stories my parents told me of living in Toledo, which is about 100 miles (160.35km) east of Cleveland. Back in the 1940's. my Dad had to build a little fire under his car every morning before he could start it! B-r-r-r-r! I'm glad we live in Oregon, where the snow is usually on the hills where we can enjoy it without having to be out in it unless we want to. Many Hugs to everyone who has done this puzzle, & special ones to Joan454 for sharing it with us ~ just look at how many hours of fun you have given to all of us! XXX Gina

RandomWorship

Thanks @Magnus. I recall from my very early days of Jigidi, there was lots of conjecture about the the leaderboard always changing the places of people with the same times. First in, best dressed seems fairest to me too. (❛ᴗ❛)

Magnus
Jigidi staff

@RandomWorship, yes. Thought it would be fair that way. You'll keep your spot unless beaten.

@Jumble, hmm, well, if you'll accept that we may have to roll back the extended leaderboard one day if it turns out to be a technical challenge, then sure :-) Exceptions in the code tend to cause trouble down the road. But as the extended leaderboard on this puzzle hasn't caused any problems yet, I doubt it will be an issue.

RandomWorship

Hi @Magnus - if poolcue, jumble and snooker all have the same solving time, how is that snooker is on the leaderboard? Is it "first in, best dressed"?

Magnus
Jigidi staff

I noticed your conversation about the leaderboard. It's not locked and @poolcue, @Jumble, and @snooker share place 15 on the board with a solving time of only 47 seconds! (my best is 58 seconds).

snooker made the time in June 2015, poolcue 8 days ago and Jumble today!

Nature never ceases to amaze me!

It is good to hear that you are well and safe, Joan :-))

So far, I am doing fine.

Congratulations on the number of solves on your puzzle :-)

1765074 Figured I'd give it another shot. My times have never been all that great. I sure wish that some of the solvers' times had not been eliminated. I know Roxanne was number 1 for a long time, lower 20s, but then her name disappeared. I see Barbara is still there.

On my Samsung Galaxy S-6 tablet I have to:
1. Click on green "Solve Puzzle" button, (lower Right of picture.)
2. Click on "•••" Button, (upper Right of window.)
3. Above picture, click on "?" button. (3rd from RIGHT)
4. Click on boxed "Restart" button, (Right side, below picture.)

I hope this helps.

In the past, I've had the same problem. Sometime it lets me solve it, but other times I can't. If it happens again, I'll report it. (Good idea, Rob.)

l find they don't allow more than once- that has happened to me lots of times.

I wonder why it won't let me put the puzzle together again.
