Puzzle 4 - Regional Masyu: The example appears to have 4 turns per region, unlike the 2 stated, unless I’m misunderstanding the meaning of turn in this context.

Puzzle 7-9: It’s a bit inconsistent that the same ‘rule name’ doesn’t mean the same thing for all puzzles. 7 has no rule for white cells, while the other two do. That should probably be highlighted.

Puzzle 9 - Tapa with regional match: The first solution needs R6C3 coloured.

Puzzle 10 - Regional Akari: The example is not unique. R6C3 could be in R6C4, as an example.

Puzzle 4: You are right, there are 4 turns in the example as well
Puzzle 7: We will try to make the difference clear
Puzzle 9: We will fix the solution
Puzzle 10: We will try to fix it.

Puzzle 7) ABC-Sky with regional match: Will the two grids be named, or do we have to decide which is "As Easy as ABC" and which is "Skyscrapers with parks"?

Puzzle 2: Regional tetrominoes; Puzzle 3: Regional pentominoes

The example has multiple solutions unless you specify the tetromino set. Same for puzzle 3

Puzzle 5: Regional Yajilin

The puzzle seems to have another solution. (Black cells in R6C1, R5C3, R3C4)

Puzzle 7: ABC-Sky with regional match

Both given solutions seem to contradict the clue 2 at the bottom of column 4 for both rulesets.

Puzzle 8: Skyscrapers with regional match

Is it correct that the missing hints without gray background need to be different between both puzzles? It's true for the example, but the example is uniquely solvable without the rule.
