Gold Memberships

Joining as a regular member is free of charge. However, a Gold Membership gives you access to other special tools including:

  • The Puzzle Database
  • The Custom Word Lists


PLEASE NOTE: The data made available to you with a Gold Membership is for crossword construction or solving purposes only. It must not be used to build or enhance other products, tools or services.

Gold Memberships are given to those who make contributions toward the cost of running this site. These memberships do expire after a period of time to ensure continued contributions (and to ensure the continued existence of the site). I encourage those who find the database tool useful to contribute $39 per year. If the database helps you create and sell just one puzzle, you've already made back your investment!

The easiest way to make a donation is via PayPal. Unfortunately, the script that set memberships to gold automatically (and immediately) stopped working recently, so I will ave to set your membership manually. This could take up to 48 hours, but I do try my best to set it the same day.


  • $35 Donation = One-year Gold Membership
  • $100 Donation = Three-year Gold Membership

If you make a donation and you already have time left on your membership, the membership is extended by the appropriate period of time. For example, if your membership expires on Dec. 16, 2008 and you make a $100 donation, the new expiry date is Dec. 16, 2011.

Convinced? Then carry on to the Donation Page where you can make a donation via Paypal or find out where to send a check.


Finally, please keep in mind that this is a donation-based arrangement, not fee-based. I welcome donations in order to help out, and those donations are rewarded with a Gold Membership. However, I cannot make any promises or guarantees of any kind with regard to service levels, feature requests, or anything else. All I can guarantee is that I will do my best to keep this resource available to the crossword constructing community as long as I am able to. The web site and list have been running since 1995 and I have no reason to think that'll stop any time soon, but I do need to make the donation aspect clear.

Thanks to everyone for your continued support,
