Annie K.: <Jimfromprovidence> Hello, thanks for the work you're doing to help keep the daily puzzles interesting these days. <Kevin>, the usual problemist for CG, said he would appreciate help with the puzzles. I already have one volunteer to help him, <takchess>, but the more people volunteer, the less stressful the task should be to each over the long run. Would you like to join the effort too? :)

To clarify the procedure, normally Kevin selected the puzzles, and sent them to Daniel to put up. Now <Sargon> is still working on learning to manage the site, so Kevin's recent selections are not being applied yet (the daily features have been coming out of an emergency queue), but we should soon get over this stage. If you agree to help, I will ask Sargon to give the email associated with your account to Kevin, so he can get in touch with you.>
