Without starting the crossword, I have to say it looks pretty poorly made. The lack of symmetry is fine, but there's big gaps and the whole thing is one branching tree? Not a single cycle? It looks like it was thrown together pretty casually. I'd be surprised if designing the crossword took more time than writing-up the rules.And "Still, seems like it's all stuff that's way too easy to look up. "?! If I wanted to look-up the answers, I should probably just wait till next Tuesday. Is this just a google scavenger hunt? :(

Well, to fill in that space, it's just a matter of asking more questions. If you go to 30, 40, however many questions, it starts getting more filled in and takes on a more complex appearance because there are more opportunities for shared letters. It won't necessarily be harder, but it'll certainly look more 'filled in.'I can definitely add more questions next time, if that's a common critique/complaint. Not a problem at all.As far as it being a 'google scavenger hunt,' what I meant by "too easy to look up" is... It's WoW, pretty much everything is going to be REALLY well documented unless I start throwing in numbers, and do you want a crossword puzzle with numbers? Prooobably not. That'd be less fun than being able to go to wowwiki.com and plug in "Thrall" to find his mother, IMO.I certainly don't INTEND for you to go looking things up to complete it, not at all. That's lame! I just mean that if someone decided to do that, they'd finish the thing in about 2-3 minutes.Thanks for the feedback, Sam! Even if we have some crossed lines there, I'm definitely keeping what you say in mind. : ) Thank you so much!

Lighten up dude. Tell ya what...you don't like it...don't do it. Of course, you could make one yourself and send it in. You are obviously the world's #1 expert on crossword puzzle design... I am sure they would appreciate the input. Have a great day.
