What does a full entry include? How we reached our conclusion?

@Anonymous -- The entry should be the word(s) you find once the puzzle is solved. In short, what you read vertically in the black box.:)

Don't forget to include your name and mailing address below your answer!

Oh I know how to do it but I need a little clarification. I know how to shift letters but what do slide, pull, and move mean? Are they all the same thing or do they mean something different? I figured out how to do the rest but I'm stuck on this.

Awesome! I really enjoyed the puzzle this week!

@ILUVNANCY!!! -- Slide, shift, and pull pretty much all mean the same thing (move). :) You might be able to figure out which direction to move based on the number revealed.
