Getting All Connected With Facebook, Twitter, and Google Plus

By: Justin Zablocki (author, Zablocki Bros. LLC) on November 24th, 2013 05:02 PM.

We've made it possible to join and login to GRiN:) with Facebook now to make the user experience more smooth and connected. Eventually, we will be utilizing Facebook features to a greater extent to facilitate sharing, challenging, and more. Similarly, sharing buttons have been added to riddles and jokes to make it easier for you to share them on your social networks. We HIGHLY encourage you to share them as we feel that sharing a riddle or well-writen joke is more meaningful than much of the mundane posts that you see on social networks these days.

We plan on making progress towards a more socially connected word play website as such features will be mutually beneficial to GRiN:) and its users.

A Picture's Worth A Thousand Riddles

By: Justin Zablocki (author, Zablocki Bros. LLC) on October 4th, 2013 06:44 AM.

The team here at GRN has just released our first set of Picture Riddles. These riddles include a photograph or graphic depicting the riddle to be solved. Text will often accompany these riddles as well. Not only will the question portion of the riddles include images, the answer portion may also include an image depicting the answer to the riddle. The images will be initially displayed as a smaller thumbnail in the riddle; by clicking the thumbnail a full-sized version will be displayed for better viewing.

As well as picture riddles, the team has implemented a few other helpful changes to the content of riddles:

  • Riddles now list their title on their individual viewing page (view this by clicking a riddle in a listing).
  • Each riddle may now include a "hint" option to aid the reader in solving the riddle.
  • Riddles may include an origin URL where more information can be viewed.

Please enjoy these updates and check out our selection of picture riddles.

Users Can Save Answered Riddles

We have just released the initial version of riddle correctness for users. For each riddle that a user views an answer for they may save whether or not they correctly answered the riddle. This data will help provide the total number of users who correctly answered the riddles for all to see. Each individual user's ability to answer an individual riddle will not be visible to the public, though. Eventually, all of this riddle answer correctness data will be used in the upcoming Riddle IQ calculator. All registered users who have saved their riddle answers will be given a Riddle IQ that compares their ability to solve riddles with that of others. Please enjoy this unique riddle feature by becoming a member and logging in.
