I had a quick peek at the maze and where people are in it. There are 9 of you in there so far and AT LEAST 3 (probably more) are able to move (some in more ways than 1) to a SWAP square which will then swap all the walls to spaces so it is certainly fairly easily possible if people use up their moves to SWAP the maze.
I'm wondering if perhaps it would help if I add an email to be triggered to all those within the maze when someone hits a SWAP space.
So, there are a few options ...
1 - Everyone in the Mazuma Mazes group gets an email when the maze walls and spaces are swapped.
2 - Just those currently IN the maze get an email when the maze walls and spaces are swapped.
3 - A post is made in the current Mazuma Mazes topic saying when the maze walls and spaces are swapped. I'm not sure if the system will automatically then trigger an email to say it has been updated if you have subscribed to the topic (but will test this and would do my best to make sure it does).
4 - No changes (you just keep checking by going into the maze). Please note that if you are stuck you should Refresh OR go out of the maze and go back in to see if it has been swapped (the latter option is probably best to be sure you see the very latest status).
5 - More severe but maybe better for those constantly frustrated and not wanting to check back -- just don't have any walls and swaps any more!
For option 5 I would still be able to create some with Walls and Swaps and would prefer to have them this way as they last a bit longer and was more to the original design that I came up with and I would be more likely to keep a higher number of prizes spread out over a bit longer whilst people hunt
I have now added a poll for this for (initially) 14 days from today. After this I will go with whichever option is most popular (or extend the vote if any popular options are equal). Please note that it may take me a week or so to code and test any of the 3 first 3 options (above).
