Our members are generally amateur crossword setters and as such their crosswords may contain factual inaccuracies and occasional spelling mistakes. The commenting and mistake reporting systems allow you to describe problems, to supply positive feedback, or to prove construction criticism to the submitter. The comments system is not for supplying abusive or unhelpful comments.

Reporting Mistakes: If you want to reporting a mistake with one of the clues or words in this crossword rather that leaving a comment then you should use the Report Mistake button. This will leave a message for the submitter prompting them to resolve the mistake.

"..... Very good! I've just one thing to point out... A County Official.......REEVE ??? I checked through three on-line dictionaries and there is no definition for the word REEVE that states "County Official" Please re-check the definition of this word for yourself....just to be sure. Judith :-) ...."

"...I looked up reeve ... went to Google... typed in "reeve definition" ... seems the author got it right!! County official is OK by me..."

commented mungo on 13 October 2006 at 06:47 AM GMT

"...nice puzzle, a little tough for me today (must me brain-dead) :o) - the word "odour" is spelled "odor" in the US - But I love England and the the "language" there, so I didn't mind at all. LOL Went again this past July (hottest in London on record!) Had a great time. ..."

"...36 across could be ---s- or ---f- as well as the shown answer. All 3 are correct. Otherwise an excellent job thanks. (ps for anyone unconvinced; the origin of the word sheriff = 'Shire-Reeve')(A Shire is a type of County)...."

commented Noggin1973 on 07 November 2006 at 12:44 AM GMT

"...Very nice puzzle. Reeve through me off completely and the spelling of odor. But that's the idea; to be a bit tricky at times. Lots of fun. ..."

commented lindagentryvon on 10 November 2006 at 03:24 AM GMT

"...the author is british. that's what the little flag at the top of the puzzle means. so of course the author is going to use the british spellings. cultural spellings are not incorrect, just different, therefore, "odour" is fine...."

"...Gotta have a few more difficult clues/words to make it spicy. Any work that is in the dictionary is fair, whether or not I've heard of it (this is how I learn new words). Really fun puzzle. Thanks!..."

"...Brilliant! My favorite is "container of DIY implements". Very cute. : )..."

commented vespertine808 on 03 October 2007 at 04:17 PM GMT

"...Brilliant. Got most of them the first time down. I learned a new word with reeve, and was delighted to learn how the word sheriff was formed. Had to peek for 7D (yeah, I know, I guess I wasn't fully awake). Also had to look up DIY because I haven't been living in an English-speaking country for the past 38 years and some expressions don't come readily to me. Then, briandval always makes the best crossword puzzles...."
