    Tanga Point Auctions Have Started!

    Hello all you Tangaites! We are pleased to announce our Tanga Point Auctions that we will be holding regularly throughout the year. We may mix up the auctions with other fun things in the future that you will be able to participate in by using our Tanga Points, but for now, we plan on having an auction every two weeks.

    Every person who has Tanga Points is eligible to participate in the auction. To bid, just go to the auction page, that will be linked off of the home page of Tanga.com, login to your account and make a bid. You will only be allowed to bid up to the amount of TP that you currently hold. If you win, you will pay the amount of Tanga Points equal to the lowest winning bid. So if 30 people win, they all pay the lowest winning bid for the product! Ties will be broken by time of bid placement.

    Auctions run for only 24 hours and will start at the same Tanga time of 7:00 p.m. PST / 10:00 p.m. EST. After the 24 hours is up, the winners will be posted and also notified by email. Auction winners will be required to pay shipping. If there are any other charges associated with winning an auction, it will be posted on the auction product page.

    In order for you to plan your auction strategies accordingly, we have decided to let you know several weeks in advance what the next auctions will be.

    December 20th – 30 copies of The Bridges of Shangri-La
    January 3rd – 15 Linksys Wireless Music Systems WMLS11B
    January 17th – 50 copies of Saga the game

    As this is in beta and has not been used in a live environment, please excuse our dust as we make this system work for you!

    Many of you have asked how you get Tanga Points. The following is a list of ways:

    Purchase a Tanga: 5 points
    Be the first to purchase a Tanga: 10 points
    Be the one to purchase the last Tanga available: 10 points
    Participate in Daily Fun: 1-4 points

    Thank you for your support of Tanga and we hope you enjoy the auctions!

    Puzzle contest update

    EXTRA EXTRA! We have decided not to stop accepting puzzles. We were planning to do one month of user generated puzzles, but the quantity and quality of your submissions has exceeded our expectations, so we will be featuring your puzzles for longer.

    Here’s the link for submitting puzzles: CLICK THIS LINK

    As a reminder, puzzles must be 500 by 500 pixel jpeg files. The answer must be one word. Proper nouns are ok.

    We will award 20 Tanga Points to the creator for each puzzle that we use. It won’t happen right away because programmers take too many vacations to Paris.

    Please note that the puzzle titles that you submit will not be displayed. If you have submitted a puzzle and the title is needed as a solving aid, please incorporate the title into the jpeg and re-submit the puzzle. I doubt this is the case for many of the puzzles but it’s up to you. Sorry if this wasn’t clear.

    Some of the puzzles are (again, in my opinion) “one edit away”from being excellent. Since there are enough puzzles that don’t need editing, we’ll use those first. Some of you might get an email from me with edit suggestions. This won’t happen until after the new year.

    Thanks to everyone for chipping in to make Tanga even more vexing! aw

    Puzzle Solutions becoming available!

    Yay! The programmers gave us a new toy. The solutions to puzzles will now be available 24 hours after the release of the puzzle (after they no longer count for tanga points). We’re working on putting up answers for all of the past puzzles as well, starting with the earliest ones.

    Text Messaging, back by popular demand

    We are surprised and flattered by the number of folks that can’t live without their Tanga text messages! As a result we’ve turned text messaging back on! For those of you that are concerned about getting too many messages go to you My Account area and uncheck sms messaging.

    SMS during tangathon

    Because of the volume of messages that get sent out during the tangathon we’ve temporarily disabled sms messaging so your cell phone bills don’t go sky high. If you want to get notified of product releases we suggest signing up for email messaging. Be aware we also have RSS feeds but they will be a bit behind the normal messaging channels.

    Mea culpa culpa from puzzlemaster

    OK everyone. I need your help. I can’t find a log to hide under.

    There were TWO errors in the puzzle today. Both have been corrected.

    The box sizes in row three were wrong AND the wrong word was clued in the rightmost box in row 3. The clue “Hooter” was for owl, which is not a fitting answer.

    Use this blog to vent and to offer suggestions to my masters for methods of discipline.

    Servers are getting pounded!

    We need to apologize to you, and thank you, for the amount of traffic we are receiving. We are now experiencing over 100Xs the typical amount of traffic that we usually receive. So that is why we are experiencing slow downs. We are going to be working tonight to get a few things optimized on the site and hope that it handles it. When we do our next Tangathon, we will definitely be more prepared for the server load with a lot more resources.

    Update: We ran out of disk space. How silly of us! Problem fixed, Tanga away!
