### Re: Difficulty Ratings

On the other hand: "If smart people solve it quickly, then *are you sure it is easy* ?", it could be easy for the smart people, but the average PE user might find it not so easy. This is just something to think about. Yes, it's entirely possible that something like this happens: -Problem A is relea...

### Re: Problem 521

Hi all, Can problem 521 be solved by the "one minute rule"? Just *counting* to 10 12 took me on a fast computer more then 15 minutes (not finding primes, just counting). So will I need to expect a slow solution, or am I missing something that will enable me to solve it fastly? We don't release prob...

### Re: Errors/Warnings/Bugs

459 was one of the few problems that had < 100 solvers when the site had to be taken offline for a while (mid June - mid August 2014). As a result, the Fastest Solvers lists for those problems were locked when site access was restored.

### Re: Search button?

@solarmew: The lack of category tags has been intentional. If a category is too vague, it won't be helpful. If a category is too detailed, it might give away a solution. For example, what looks like a trig or combinatorics problem on the surface might actually be something else in disguise (e.g. a d...

### Re: Problem 059

The sentence "This is a percent sign: %" makes perfect sense. So does "The letters sdgvsgsc are gibberish." The two sentences meet the criteria of *necessarily* containing English words, i.e. they must contain English words and they do. Yes, those sentences make sense in English -- and even if the ...

For each problem released, all numbers / figures / answers are independently confirmed by three or more development team members.

Also, as of this post, this problem has two public solvers so far.
