  • $\begingroup$ @BeastlyGerbil, I just added the count to the cryptic clues - for clarity - added a PS to the puzzle. :) $\endgroup$ – Maria Deleva Sep 13 '16 at 17:53
  • $\begingroup$ Sorry, you had the wrong tag. Use [cryptic-crosswords]. $\endgroup$ – Scratch---Cat Feb 10 at 10:52
  • $\begingroup$ @Scratch---Cat, there is a reason I did not use the tag [cryptic-crosswords] - not all of the clues fit into the [cryptic-clues] category. Some are more [wordplay]. That is why the crossword is not a true cryptic crossword. $\endgroup$ – Maria Deleva Feb 11 at 6:09
