LOGIC problems?
I am saddened to see the site having less interesting logic problems of late. I realize that be becoming more popular, we are exposing ourselves to a larger percentage of Riddle submissions, as riddles are a more massmarket form of brain teasing, but I'm sure everyone would agree that this site could definitely use some problems that one needs to do a fair bit of reasoning over.
My hunt for such puzzles has generally come up empty, and regretfully, I do not have as much time to devote to this site lately as I would have liked.
Consider this a cry for help, to all our visitors, to find, or at least point me in the direction of, some really good challenging problems. Any help in this reguard would be greatly appreciated!

Re: LOGIC problems?
Yes, my apologies  I was intending to create some new puzzles of this sort, as I quite enjoy them too. I'll try to remember to have a good think along these lines...

Re: LOGIC problems?
Heh, no apologies neccessary from anyone. You least of all, considering you actually came up with a puzzle or two especially for the website.
I guess I was just exressing some built up dismay over all these riddles. When I built the site, one thing I didn't envision was a riddle archive :)

Re: LOGIC problems?
I think we should open ourselves up to a new line of logic problems which i call "real world problems" (ust a term i made up). This includes questions like "why are manholes round" and "why does ice float in water"Asking about why things are the way they are(as long as an answer isn't based on questionable modern theory e.g why do things travelling at the speed of light not age?) would be a great addition to the site.

Re: LOGIC problems?
BTW questions like "how things work" i don't htink would fit under this new style of problem. it should have a short simple comprehendable answer and it should be something like an everyday thing we never wonder about.

Asr,Bohob,and Criil
I like liars and knights problems.
They are logic problems.
Asr,Bohob,and Criil
Three inhabitants of this land,Asr,Bohob,and Criil,are having a conversation together.
Asr:We are all liars.
Bohob:One and no more than one of us is a knight.
What are each?
Answer to Asr,Bohob,and Criil
Asr cannot be a knight because if he was,then they would be all liars,including Asr,but Asr is a knight by supposition.
Therefore,Asr is a liar,so there really is at least one knight among the three.
We will call it the good knight.
If Bohob is a liar,then Criil has to be the good knight,so there is one and no more than one knight among them,so Bohob is a liar telling the truth.
Therefore,Bohob is a knight,so there is only one knight,which must be Bohob,among them,so Criil is a liar,and Bohob is the good knight.
Asr is a liar,Bohob is a knight,and Criil is a liar.

Re: LOGIC problems?
Relativity is questionable modern theory? Its application might be, but that's true of any sort of science. Heck, plenty of the riddles that get submitted are on an awfully shaky application of principles.

Re: LOGIC problems?
Tim, why are you still posting problems in the forums?
It's not interesting at all when you post a problem and the answer is immediately visible. It's really a waste of a good problem.
I think this site is made great because it encourages people to solve these puzzles. This is done best by submitting them through the normal process  by clicking the submission link.
I will really appreciate it if you do not post problems in the forums anymore.

Re: LOGIC problems?
levik it will be better if you delete all such posts and comments of Tim from the forums. I mean the problems which he has been submitting here. Otherwise everyone will see the problem as well as the solution and when its on the site there will be at most 5 comments to that problem or may be none. And if still Tim does not understand what he is asked to do then let things happen as they are. he will be the one to suffer and may be then he will realize his mistake.

Re: LOGIC problems?
Or maybe you can let journeymen have that privelege. I know some admins are tired of looking around the site, and just let other smart people delete such a submission when they see it. I don't know how you are, so I don't know :)

Re: LOGIC problems?
I am actually liking math problems more than logic problems, but I try to think of logic problems when I can :)
