I think there is a problem with the correct answers for Tiger In The Woods puzzles?

Re: 8th anniversary Forsmarts online-contest

Thank You, Vladimir! Excellent set!
One minor question. Why my solution for 'left' "Tiger in the Woods" is wrong?
Start B5. Moves - ULDRURULDRDLUL -Stop at C1.
I suspect, it is prohibited to stop if you are not on the edge or before the dark cell,
but that is not explicitly formulated in puzzle task.
I'm not asking for correcting my brilliant score,
but simply this kind of puzzles is very pleasant (at last for me),
so wording of puzzle question should be more precise.

Once more great thanks for beautiful job!

the puzzles were of excellent quality as usual, perhaps a bit harder than I expexcted. but we know that Vladimir's puzzle are ALWAYS a bit harder.

Happy birthday, forsmarts!   And thanks for another enjoyable afternoon.

Thanks, Vladimir! That was superb test. I messed up your part on 24HPC, but today I was much better. I wish I haven't made a stupid typo in 1-2 snake puzzle.

Re: 8th anniversary Forsmarts online-contest

The scores were adjusted according to my understanding of "obvious mistypes". I'm very sorry I cannot accept Nikola's answer to 1-2-snake, who otherwise would be a winner of the contest...

A few words about "Tiger in the woods": as this type of puzzles is quite well known for a long time, I just copied its rules from some source on the internet. More precisely it should read something like: "The path is allowed to stop and take a turn only after hitting either a black square or the edge of the grid". My apologies to everyone who misunderstood the rules from the wording appeared in the instruction booklet.

Congratulations to Hideaki Jo, Nikola Zivanovic and Jana Tylova who topped the table of results.
