• Guest: hi
  • Guest: this is cooked
  • Riddlewot: site functionality is slowly coming back online, unfortunately any existing user accounts will need to reset their password.
  • Riddlewot: hang in there guys, we're getting there..... :)
  • Guest: I'm tired lol.
  • Riddlewot: me too buddy, me too
  • Guest: This is actually pretty cool, looking forward to seeing the final results once all the bugs are ironed out...
  • Izumu: This website is amazing
  • Riddlewot: what the
  • Innocuous: You've kicked the colors up, very tech looking
  • Riddlewot: Private message functionality is currently being restored. I personally love the front page now, the "counter" for users trying to solve todays riddle is in real-time and the log beneath is live too, it make the page feel a bit more alive.
  • riddleNOT: wow this is cool, reminds me of when websites used to be fun
  • Innocuous: I see the counter. I solved the FP a couple days ago, and just ran it again and both counters are still zero. What criteria are you implementing to toggle the counters? I assume up arrow for solved and down arrow for failed attempts. Congratulations on the many site improvements, now we need some more users!
  • Riddlewot: Just a heads up Innocuous, you may need to log out and log back in for your admin privileges to work, had to change a few things in the back ground
  • Riddlewot: still working on getting the private messaging back up.....
  • Innocuous: No worries, RW. I've been in and out twice for the password update
  • Innocuous: I just updated the front page to the configuration I recall reading it as before it was approved. We haven't had "fill in the blanks" for years but it provided a good hint as the word or phrase would be a known number of letters.
  • Riddlewot: no worries, I trust your judgement :)
  • Riddlewot: Seems like our new AI powered riddle generator is getting some use!
  • Innocuous: I'm going to check it out when the boss isn't looking :D
  • Riddlewot: no sure if you noticed, but under settings, you can completely turn off advertising
  • Innocuous: Just checked it out! I need some more uninterrupted time to learn about the site
  • Guest: Hi
  • Riddlewot: hi
  • Innocuous: Please consider today's front page to NOT be innuendo :)
  • Riddlewot: haha, I saw that... wasn't sure if I should let it go.... but meh
  • Riddlewot: private messages are working too by the way, just click profile > messages... I just haven't implemented the notification yet sorry!
  • Innocuous: Users, the current front page is plural despite all the "it" references. Take your best guess and add a letter "s" and perhaps you will put this riddle to rest
  • Pres333: How do I get more credits
  • Riddlewot: for the riddle generator?
  • jimmbam: hello fellow riddlers!
  • Innocuous: Howdy ***, jimmbam!
  • Innocuous: OMG the "word" made by the letters "h" and "o" combined is censored! I now understand why, but so much for Mr. Hankey quotes!
  • Innocuous: RiddleWot users, the current FP would normally be a single word, in this case preceeded by an article, in American English anyway. SO think of the solution to this riddle as one word.
  • Riddlewot: too be fair, h-o and h-o-e are two completely different meanings...
  • Riddlewot: I might check the word filter list :)
  • Riddlewot: emoticons should work now! 🙂
  • Riddlewot: and you can say ho
  • Chimpoo: Hi
  • Riddlewot: Hey there! long time no chat... I finally took the time to recode the site properly.
  • Innocuous: Santa and Mr. Hankey will be so pleased! Ho Ho Ho!
  • Innocuous: Seeing you on is like watching the return of Jeapordy champions, Chimpoo. Good to see you back.
  • Riddlewot: howwwwwdy hoooo 🌈
  • Innocuous: Golly pal, you sure smell alot like flowers...
  • Riddlewot: let me add in a flower emoticon :flowers:
  • Riddlewot: 🌸
  • Riddlewot: :flowers:
  • Riddlewot: 🌺
  • Riddlewot: nice
  • Mouse: hi
  • Riddlewot: Hi mouse, nice to meet you!
  • natediaz: Hi people
  • Riddlewot: 🌺
  • scissorhands: mr hankey the xmas ***
  • Riddlewot: poo
  • Innocuous: Nothing like some classic South Park to start the day!
  • Riddlewot: Team America has so many good lines.... really is an overlooked masterpiece
  • Innocuous: I used to watch Gerry and Sylvia Anderson series (Supercar, Captain Scarlet, Thunderbirds, etc) in Western Massachusetts USA where I grew up. Anime such as Kimba the White Lion and Astroboy were rarely shown, more Western US distribution apparently. Regardless, Trey Parker and Matt Stone owe a debt of inpsiration to the Andersons.
  • petacormackphot: Hi everyone I'm an author and I'm looking for a very special riddle or two riddles actually possibly three and I was wondering if I could get some help as I'm completely useless at riddles
  • petacormackphot: well budding author I should say
  • petacormackphot: One situation has the serial killer being framed by two people who are cutting out cadavers additional home and selling body parts on the black market and try to hide it when they found out by making it look like it's them and I need a riddle to put on the body basically saying that they were liars and they tried to pin it on him and so he got his pay back/revenge
  • Riddlewot: lol ummmmmmmmmm
  • Riddlewot: is this a riddle or a crime?
  • Riddlewot: I'll see what I can come up with 🙂
  • Riddlewot: @petacormackphot Ok sent you a private message
  • Riddlewot: @petacormackphot I've also made some adjustments to the riddle generator AI prompt so you should start seeing much better responses. I'll also top your account up with another 10,000 credits
  • Riddlewot: Welcome to all our new users, we hope you enjoy your time here. 🙂
  • Guest: Hi, this is Innocuous. I'm not getting PW reset links and cannot access my account accordingly.
  • Riddlewot: OK will look into it now for you
  • Riddlewot: Hmm so I've confirmed the reset password emails have been sent and can't see any errors. Have you checked your junk or spam folders??
  • Guest: I thought I had... i've been associated with RW for years on the same gmail but who knows?
  • Riddlewot: is your email still rcpa********@gmail.com
  • Innocuous: Yes and I am back in! Thanks for your help RW
  • Innocuous: It was in the spam folder, both my request yesterday and my followup today. I think the delay was on gmail.
  • Eva: Hi if we guess incorrectly can we see the answer to the daily riddle?
  • Riddlewot: @Eva, at the end of the day, the daily riddle will be moved to the "latest riddles" section, you can then turn on the "reveal answers" option, which is found under settings.
  • Eva: Thank you!
  • BROOKLYN1112: hi
  • BROOKLYN1112: your welcome
  • BROOKLYN1112: hello
  • teshawnbeatz757: hi
  • BROOKLYN1112: how are you
  • Innocuous: we are good
  • Riddlewot: hi
  • Innocuous: Attention Riddlewot users! Todays FP is a three word noun beginning with the indefinite article "A".
  • Innocuous: The answer is not case sensitive. A (space) _ _ _ _ _ _ _ (space) _ _ _ _ as a fill in the blanks hint. When I first joined RiddleWOT, the "fill in the blanks" was part of the displayed riddle 🙂
  • Innocuous: For those of you who are grammatically challenged, another hint: "I have "a" piece of fish"
  • Innocuous: Todays FP is two words, the first is the definite article "the"
  • Guest: i cant believe they did away with the leaderboard. top 40 in my highschool days.
  • Innocuous: I miss it too. Big battle between Chimpoo and a woman whose handle I cannot remember. Perhaps that data is still around
  • Riddlewot: The leaderboard went off solved riddles which can easily be reintroduced.... with the nature of the site now being able to reveal the answers though, it seemed a little unfair... but if people want it back, happy to oblige.
  • Innocuous: Good point RW. Could answers be accessed in a manner that it would not toggle a correct response tally?
  • lcfrd: I'm sorry to say I lost interest in the site when 1) the leaderboard, 2) the ability to view the entire list of user submitted riddles, sorted by date, and 3) the ability to view/hide the riddles you've already solved all disappeared. I enjoyed the competitiveness of getting to the top spot on the leaderboard and I really liked going back to the oldest riddles I'd been stuck on for months because one day they would just click. I keep popping in every now and then to see how the site has changed but I miss how it used to be. I'm glad it's still going though!

We are excited to announce that our riddle generator has undergone significant improvements to enhance its performance and generate high-quality riddles. As you may know, fine-tuning AI models to produce the desired output can be a challenging task. However, after rigorous testing and experimentation, we have identified the optimal settings that have resulted in a remarkable improvement in the quality of the generated riddles.

We recognize that the success of the riddle generator relies heavily on the input prompt provided. Therefore, we advise users to communicate with the AI model as they would with a human and provide clear and precise instructions. By doing so, the riddle generator can better understand and produce the desired output, ultimately resulting in more engaging and entertaining riddles for everyone to enjoy.

We are continuously working on enhancing our AI models to provide users with the best possible experience. We believe that these improvements to the riddle generator are just the beginning and look forward to introducing more exciting updates in the future.

Hi there! We wanted to let you know about a new premium membership option that we'll be testing over the next few weeks. Don't worry, it's completely optional and won't affect our free accounts in any way. We understand that information should always be free, but we have to cover our internal costs and time.

To give you an idea of the numbers we're dealing with, we sometimes see upwards of 20,000 page views in a single day. Additionally, our riddle generator (which is powered by OpenAI) creates anywhere between 1000 - 5000 riddles per day, and this also has an internal cost. Unfortunately, the revenue we receive from ads is usually under $1, and doesn't even cover our costs for the riddle generator.

We believe that having a two-tier membership will be in the best interest of both ourselves and our users. We welcome any ideas or suggestions you may have about this new membership option. Thanks for being a part of our community!
