Author Topic: Generally: How can I determine if a theme has already been done?  (Read 30 times)

How do I know if my theme idea was already used by another constructor?  Is there a database of some sort?  Maybe a list of quotes that have been used already.  I have had some theme ideas that turned out to be unoriginal, i.e. already done.  I'd like to save some time.

Well, this site (cruciverb) has a pretty good database of entries and where/when they were used, with links to the grids. Also, crosswordtracker.com, but no links to grids. Crosswordgiant.com has lots of data and can link to the complete list of entries in a particular puzzle. And, of course xwordinfo.com has everything that has appeared in NYT.
