Quality is AC's purely-subjective rating of how well it works as a puzzle. This is distinct from difficulty, which should be reasonably clear, and legwork, which is the amount of time the puzzle might take not counting time to figure out what needs doing: legwork 1/5 is "just a few leaps of intuition", legwork 5/5 is "this will take a lot of doing even if you know what you're doing".

I wonder if we could give, or even sell, some of these to CISRA for future years? --Rachael
That's an interesting thought. I'd be happy for mine to be submitted except that B1 probably needs redoing to remove the images to which I don't own the copyright, and I'm sure that between us we can improve the clues for the couple on D1 that people didn't manage to get. --qqzm
Having put them online on a public website already would probably disqualify these particular ones from being used. But I could well see us offering our services as a puzzle-writing team with these as our portfolio :) --AlexChurchill
