Also the example doesn't solve uniquely with the clues as given.

Puzzle 10: Liar diagonal slitherlink

Is it enough for a number to be crossed by a diagonal for it to be a liar, or does the number of used edges actually have to be wrong? E.g., in the example, would the solution still be correct if the clue R1C4 was a 1? (The example is uniquely solvable without that, hence the question.)

Puzzle 16: Wrong shikaku

The puzzle seems to be not unique. For example the middle 6 could be extended down by one to form an 8, and the 4 in R5 becomes a 2.

The number of edges of the liar has to be actually wrong.
