World of Appernysia Survey

I need everyone's help!

On my "World of Appernysia" page, I have most of the images formatted as virtual puzzles. I originally did this to appeal to youth readers. I thought it might be entertaining for them to put the puzzles together (and I've heard many adults have been sucked into the fun, too).

However, now the "World of Appernysia" is being used by e-readers, since Kindles and Nooks don't handle large images very well. Also, the virtual puzzles take a lot more time to load, which will bog down wi-fi users.

So the big question is, what should I do?
  1. Keep the pictures as virtual puzzles
  2. Change them to solid pictures
  3. Do both

Please use the survey on the right sidebar to answer this question. Don't forget to click the Vote button after you make your selection. Feel free to leave a comment here if you want to explain your answer. Thanks!

UPDATE:

Thanks to everyone for their feedback! I have replaced the puzzles with pictures, then add another tab called "Just for Fun" with the virtual puzzles. This should keep everyone happy.

I say do both. Just my 2 cents.

Do both so readers have an option.

You should look it to see if you can show/hide the puzzles based on what is being used to view it. I know that websites cam detect when it is a mobile device.

If anything slows down my download time, I get annoyed and often won't look at it. That's why I voted change to a picture.

The puzzles are so you, if you can keep them & people have a choice to download them or not, that would be great!
