Social distancing

Hi Gareth, any chance that you might make more puzzles available for free from the daily puzzles while so many of us are on lockdown in our homes? Social distancing would be less boring if we had more puzzles!

Hi bboa,
The idea had occurred to me, and I might well do that. I do need to make sure that paying subscribers don't lose out, however, so I considering posting one or two extra puzzles a day and making these free, during this period. If it happens, you'll see soon enough since there will be free puzzles everyday. :)

Okay - I've implemented it. There will be 2 free puzzles every day, plus 4 further puzzles for daily subscribers.

Starting today.

yes, good solution.
Another idea I had: offer a 3 months subscription for a fair price.

And how about a ban of Consecutive Sudokus while distancing is necessary... only non-consecutives... (sorry for being off-topic)

I won't be changing the way subscriptions work unless I do so by rewriting the code entirely - for ages I've wanted to add the option of monthly billing. That would mean people could subscribe for shorter periods for less, if they didn't want a full year.

And yes, I guess I could rename the non-consecutive variant in the short-term to 'social distancing sudoku' as you suggest! But I won't.

->rename the non-consecutive

That was not my suggestion. So thank you for not doing it.
