My response to if Alt1 should be banned: No


Now I will say that my reason is biased, and its just personal experiences and issues that I have when it comes to puzzles and problem something. I can't do it without a guide and/or a solution.

Especially, when it comes to Celtic Knots which I have never been able to learn and still have trouble understanding the concept. I would never be able to finish a clue scroll without Alt1.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

But I will say this, after my time using it: I do feel like that it is "Cheating"


The reason why I say that is because it does make clue scrolls a breeze by taking the challenge away from them (Especially when it comes to puzzles).

Even so with some of the challenges and the Celtic Knot or other puzzles, it isn't straightforward how to solve them either or shown me how to.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

TLDR: Celtic Knots are the bane of my existence

That's the only reason why I use it and what I use it for

What challenge? Might I ask? Because, personally, having played this game for a little over 16 years now, I have yet to find the "challenge" in a clue scroll. The solving algorithms are so basic for the puzzle boxes that my brother and I figured them out at the age of 8 and 10 respectively. There is no actual intellectual challenge, as everyone who has the care to open a google tab can find this solving algorithm quite easily. (back to my original point of how this software is a glorified google tab, as it only does things a wiki page can already do for you.)



My response is 100% just how I feel, I feel like because it gives me the solution and solves some of the puzzles to me that just feels like it is cheating. I only speak for myself given my experiences and mainly, my frustration with the knot puzzles.

It's just a puzzle solver and there's only 2 real puzzles, I just feel like it takes the challenge away from them.

I actually have another reason why I don't think Alt1 should be banned.
Because there are other sites such as the Wiki that also has the solution to other riddles such as maps, anagrams, coordinates.

> Do I feel like that's cheating? Not really
People have worked together to solve these and leave the answers up there for everyone else if they wish to use it.

So I guess another reason I have is, there's no real reason to at this point. There are guides and walkthroughs online that help you (if you wish to use them) that Alt1 just seems to serve the same purpose.
