(In reply to re(7): solution by SilverKnight)

There's not specified time, and it applies to journeymen as well, as anyone who has seen and worked on the solution while in the queue. I'd say 80% of the time I do work out a puzzle while it's still in the queue; other people try not to work on it, but having people work on it does help weed out some solutionless puzzles, or verify that there is indeed a solution for puzzles that others thought were solutionless.

But in any event, if I've worked out the solution before, I'd leave a couple of hours. As mentioned, I had thought that puzzle had been up for a couple of hours, and I did post the solution under that impression, so that answers your last question.

In the particular case of this puzzle, in fact, I was curious if others would come up with a solution quickly, as I had wondered if it were really difficulty 5. Unfortunately due to my misreading of the time since posting, we did not find out.

But if I hadn't worked on the puzzle while it was in the queue, I would post a solution as soon as I came up with one.
