Meant to be the first 4.0 hold made, delays and inactivity have made that impossible. I guess being possibly one of the last few holds made in 4.0 is a good enough consolation price. :P

Aside from that, it's a neat little hold with some shallow water puzzles, medium difficulty with a few more difficult challenges within.

Enjoy!

Very enjoyable, relatively short hold focusing on shallow water.

Puzzles take thought but aren't overly difficult.

Good job Jeff, have fun fellow DRODders!

This is a pretty fun shallow water hold. Some of the skipper rooms looked like they might have been tedious but there was more than enough leeway so it wasn't all that bad. I found it to be a fun way to spend an hour or two, overall 8 for fun and 6 for brains.

Holy carps. D:

I wake up this morning, and I find someone smacked me with 6 negative karma points, and the rating is down to 6.0...

Did this hold really piss someone off that horribly? :(

I still wish there was no negative modding, or at least there should be a solid reason posted along with the negative mod. I see no reason for the down modding Jeff.

My guess is someone got frustrated with one of the rooms and decided to take it out on me by down-karma-ing the hold.

Though there's the Hints and Solutions. Not sure why they didn't go for that instead... :?

Yeah, TSS looms and the unwashed masses start swarming in with their downmods and their spam posts. And their preorders, so yeah.

Yeah, but someone has to have given the unwashed individual at least two rank points each to be capable of even one downmod. So up to six someones, somewhere, who managed to get at least two instances of imaginary Internet endorsement points each, felt the need to silently give Jeff a slap in the face for daring to put out a decent hold.

Depressing, isn't it?

edit: Or the Bar gave them mod points. I can't remember if it did that.

Perhaps they were aiming for Test6 and missed.
