I've been having fun seeing the new puzzles come in and solving them. I find the difficulty to be just right : having to try new things but not being stuck for days.
However, when I end up finding something (a word, a sentence) that could look like a solution to a puzzle, I sometimes wonder if it is indeed the solution or simply an intermediate step.
Some puzzles do have a hint about the shape of the solution (for example, Nov 23, #2, we are looking for a 3 letters creature). Other puzzles leave us completely blind.
Most puzzles websites have you moving around from step to step as you solve puzzles, so you have a sense of whether you are in the right direction. Since, for now, we are only solving independant puzzles, it's harder to have this feeling of "I solved it, I'm progressing."
All of this to say, I'd love to see more puzzle descriptions where we have an idea of what we are looking for, what the solution should look like.
Until we have a more automated method in place, we will attempt to provide information to assist you with knowing when you have reached a solution. In general, if you have a word or a sentence, you have reached a solution. We will see if there are others besides the one you mentioned which may need more clarification.
Speaking of that one, to slightly correct your comment, it is a creature with a three-letter name, such as yours, kynax, is five-letters.
Edit: And many thanks, we appreciate your feedback.
We greatly appreciate your thanks. Our goal is that people learn, but enjoy themselves at the same time. We are, in many ways, an ARG school. We know school can be boring. We are attempting to entertain as we teach.
The white puzzle will lead you to a word, related to our activities, not the names of the song, and orange will lead you to a short sentence, again, related to concepts we have discussed. Are these types of statements ones that would assist?
