The ArmoredPenguin.com web site has some additional features that are available to paid subscribers. None of these features are required for making puzzles, printing them out, or other basic uses, however having an account adds capabilities that can make the puzzles more interesting, as well as easier and faster to create.
The standard features (no account needed) are:
The added features of having an account are:
If none of these features is of any use to you, just go back and make free puzzles.
These features are subject to accountability. Just because you can have pictures associated with puzzles doesn't mean that you can make public listings of inappropriate images. Any abuse may lead to cancellation of your account without warning or refund. So please use these features in an appropriate fashion. Note that many words are quite appropriate in an appropriate context. Look at the puzzles in the Nursing or health categories. That's not a problem. Also, if the puzzles aren't listed for the public, then there is no problem because the only people that will see the puzzles are you and those you give the URL to. What isn't needed are public puzzles with profanity, obscenity, or things that you wouldn't be able to adequately explain to your mom.
In the past, we've had a PayPal link where you could freely donate money to the operation of the web site. If you have contributed any amount in past years to this web site, let me know the name you used and approximate date and I will count that for a year's worth of service beginning when you create your account.
If you have questions for how these features work, check out the FAQ on the left sidebar or drop me a piece of email at firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll see what I can do to answer your questions (and update the FAQ as appropriate).
