                  Love this format where you can check your submission's success immediately. (Can people who haven't yet solved SEE these comments? I was going to post here what I ALMOST submitted...).
                  • Mike D 🤓7:02 · 12 days ago
                    Glad you like it! Nope you can only view the comments after solving the meta (or giving up and revealing the solution), so feel free to post "spoilers"
                  • Sommersmith 🤓7:23 · 11 days ago
                    Fun! I'm just starting to get the hang of meta puzzles - it helps when one is this well-constructed and clever!
                    • Idriss Z 🤓8:29 · 11 days ago
