Thumbs down What is up with this box?

I'm doing a long quote by Gadhafi, and I know what the quote is. All I'm missing are filling out two blank boxes where dashes should be- no more letters belong in this completed quote.

Underneath the box looks like:

__
2

Whats going on here? My score is absolutely ruined.

You're missing a letter. The 2 is a frequency marker. Without seeing the quote, I'm going to guess the letter is a U, with the English/Canadian spelling of something like honor/honour.

Sorry about your score. A quicker way to get help is to post your problem in the Chat Box. Players check there more frequently so they can also see who else is playing.

The boxes aren't in the words, they are separate.

The letters are set up like this:
__
E
4


these boxes have no letter, just a number.

___
2

That's weird. If numbers are in the middle of a quote but not in boxes, they aren't meant to be solved. Like years or percentages. That doesn't sound like what you encountered, just putting it out there as a possibility.

If you believe it to be a glitch, take a screenshot and email it to Admin. He can use the url to track down the offending page and fix it for future users. Doesn't help you any, but it won't happen again.

Yes. I tried dashes, and ampersands, and any other punctuation I could think of. Zilch!

This is the cryptogram in question:

Puffer,

You do have an error in the puzzle. The next to last word should be "few" instead of "new". As to the boxes with the 2 under them, I haven't a clue.
