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.

"...Another fun one - not familiar with the term "made" in reference to the Mafia..."

"...Thanks Suet, I too was not familiar with that usage of "made," but it's a good one to use in a crossword. I found it in "Mafia terms": It means "to be sworn in to La Cosa Nostra; synonyms: to be "straightened out," "to get your button." ..."

"...Where have you all been these last few years? Haven't you seen The Sopranos? You would definitely have know the term "made" if you had seen the series. Even I, in far-away Paris, France, knew the term... ;-))) But very enjoyable puzzle, fun and unusual clues...."

"...many clues seem incorrect, aside from 12 across, i think 7 down is ...strange... were i to answer "bytes" (which i thought it was), i would have been wrong, so changed to "facts", then gave up to "reveal word". could be true, but in american english, and as far as i know of brittish english, that one doesn't make total sense. i didn't think 29 across was at all obscure, even though i'd rather take out my eyes with a lemon zester than watch "the sopranos". only one i really found obscure was 17 across. [those notes just for future reference] it was a nice puzzle! i liked doing it! :-)..."
