There are many regular cruciverbalists here who are very keen to help you, but we need you to supply us with some information in your post. Please try to use the following guidelines when requesting help:

1. State the name (and number if available) of the puzzle in the thread title. "Stuck", "Help!!!" or "Last One" aren't very useful titles.

2. Give the clue number, the clue and the number of letters and please put this number in parentheses at the end of the clue. If no number of letters is given in the puzzle, then tell us. It also helps to know if the clue is cryptic or general knowledge.

3. Tell us which letters you already have. Try to use spaces around the character you choose for missing letters as it makes it much easier to read. Also try to ensure that the letters given match the stated number of letters in the clue.

Thanks for reading.

Dawn,
That would be for increased visibility: the red makes it stand out so it is more noticeable than a blue notice would be among a sea of blue posts.

Got it in one Sammy. It isn't meant to intimidate, just stand out so that first time visitors will spot it quickly.
