I remember getting started on this site. It took me a long, long time to learn a bigger repertoire of patterns, to understand highlander logic, etc.
So now, I took a look at this forum's archive and unearthed a few old threads which contain lots of tips etc.
Specifically, they are:
- Patterns: #1and #2 and#3
- Highlander: #4

Also, ~2.5 years ago, I made 35 YouTube videos of me solving puzzles in the KwonTomLoop Flash version here.

I don't have the time to go through the forum threads by myself and to repost the best tips here, but I still hope some of this helps.

Bumped.
EDIT: Here are more videos by me and Darklady.
EDIT#2: This Wikipedia article seems to be surprisingly good.

I'd like to share some patterns, which weren't evident for me and which I found in the solver I'm working on.

crosses on the right and upper sides of 1, line on the bottom side of 2

Bump.

Plus a new tip: If you're new enough to Slither Link that the videos by Darklady and me are too fast for you to learn from, you can slow them down directly in YouTube via Settings (the gear icon) -> Speed -> 0.5 or even 0.25.

I'm interested in feedback on whether this tip helps anyone benefit more from the videos.
