Meta #1: Answer

· By JeffPrug · Published 6 months ago

Constructor's Note: This is not a standalone puzzle! his is not a standalone puzzle! If you already did my Meta #1, click Begin Puzzle in order to check your meta answer. If not, do the Meta #1 here (then come back): https://crosshare.org/crosswords/VO0AXTA1ML5IrxLCvZ5J
Check your meta answer to my Meta #1 here. IMPORTANT: to disguise the length of the answer, I (potentially) added extra spaces after the meta answer. You must put trailing Q's at the end. Ex: If you think the meta answer is DOG , enter DOGQQQQQQQQQ . Or if you think the answer is STEALTHILY, enter STEALTHILYQQ .

    Nice! I like how you managed to create this meta submission mechanism - very clever!
    I am about halfway through adding better support for metas to Crosshare itself - soon you'll be able to specify a meta sol'n and get submissions directly on a single puzzle 😊

      Awesome, looking forward to that!

      Explanation of meta answer: the Rebus squares WHY EQUALS EM EX PLUS BEE sound out the equation y = mx + b which represents a linear function. Linear functions have graphs that are straight lines, which is also hinted at in the title "Give It To Me Straight"

        Such a clever way to let people check their answer! And a fun meta too!!

          I saw the trick pretty quickly because Zoom's auto-transcription makes some of these exact errors during my day job. :)
