Another easy riddle perhaps.

I am not very good at riddles and you'll probably work this out quickly but here goes.

What am I?

I do not exist per sae but I am here
They seek me because they want to share
I bring the many into one
For gratitude or just for fun

My nick name looks like double vision
And oft I help with your revision
I etch then cut and then I dot
First committal and that’s my lot.

Good guess Paul but not quite the answer I was looking for. You were very quick with your answer. Actually upon reading it again this may not be as easy as I had thought. Oh well someone is bound to stumble across the right answer.

you're sort of getting closer paul, in a way. Study the riddle closer, the answer is slightly complex.

Eftpos or Electronic funds transfer or ATM

Eftpos is a good word, I like the way it hands you money when you want it, but Eftpos is not the answer. I suppose I should give you guys a hint, but not just yet. I'll just let you work it out yourselves.

On second thoughts here's your one and only clue

Amid Aaron tea and sneaky ice
Part describes the backwards, very nice
Near every day you see in this place
The answer stares you in the face

Well done you guessed it? I suppose it was easy after all.


Leslie Blackwell

Who me or Cindy?


Paul Day

A window?


Cindy Beitinger

Ah Scribeslice Paul! You were correct! Very good Leslie!!!


Cindy Beitinger

Reasoning behind the hint

Amid Aaron tea and sneaky ice = between R and T (s) and sneaky (sly) ice (put it all together and we get slice)

Part describes (scribe) the backwards (slice scribe becomes Scribe Slice)

Stares you in the face you are looking at Scribe slice right now.
