  • I've added some alternate clues for ones that seem to be tougher than others. @Kleinpecan: you're really close, but probably the reason 16 and 22 across are giving you issues is that 13 down is wrong - here's a hint for it. Nice work overall though. For a hint on 7-across click here, for a hint on 11-across, click here. @Athaenara: @Whoop whoop pull up: some clues if you want them.

  • Thank you! Here's a link - the main character is an ______. The line (also from a movie adaptation) has become a bit of a meme nowadays. Ganesha811 (talk) 17:15, 1 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]
  • @Asartea:, if you'd like to double-check, the answer for 13-down can be found here. Ganesha811 (talk) 20:39, 1 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]
    @Ganesha811 Oh, like that. My brain was thinking just HTTP404, because that seemed to fit better with the clue. -- Asartea Talk | Contribs 05:54, 2 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]
    Arrgh, I was so convinced it was "redlink", though I also tried "deleted". — Bilorv (talk) 16:38, 2 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]
  • @1234qwer1234qwer4: my thinking was as follows (in white, so highlight to read): a signature box, as in on a form or document, is literally a "name space", a place to put your name. Ganesha811 (talk) 23:33, 1 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]
  • With a little bit of guessing (11 across was a fun one) and using the alternative clues that were added below the crossword here but not at the website, I've managed to figure out 19 of the words. I did not find 4, 12, 13, and 19 down, as well as 7 across. Seeing a solution has been posted somewhere in this discussion, I will probably take a look at that now. ~~~~

  • Similarly for 5 down. While the alternate clue makes the answer obvious, I still have no idea how the original clue is related. – SD0001 (talk) 03:46, 2 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]
  • Not obvious enough for me to understand either... — Bilorv (talk) 16:38, 2 November 2021 (UTC)[reply]
