Out of the 50+ puzzles I completed about five of them I started by mistake, because for example, I selected the “Current Puzzle” option instead of the nearby “Archive” or “Home” option. I read in the forum that others have similar misfortune. As a result, If I did not started the current puzzle yet, when surfing through the site I tend to have a constant fear in the back of my head of starting it inadvertently, I feel like I am walking on thin ice.

So the same way you are asked “Are you sure?” when you press the Reset button in the middle of a puzzle, I would like to suggest that every time you start a new puzzle(only the very first time) from the weekly challenge you are first asked “ARE YOU SURE YOU WANT TO START A WEEKLY CHALLENGE PUZZLE?”. The question should be asked regardless from where you start it: “Current Puzzle” option, Home Page or, Archive page.

Nice idea, I like it! I'll put it in when I get some time, but I'll make it optional (configurable via your home page) so it doesn't annoy people who don't want it...

Works great!  Especially since it doesn't ask for archived or previously started puzzles.

God you are fast! I have tested everything I could think of and it is working perfectly. The critical test was when I started today puzzle, I wait a full minute before pressing "Yes" and then time myself manually to see if the extra waiting minute is added in the official completed time: it wasn't!

Now I can surf the site fearless

Thank you Foilman
