Exclamation Success rate bug - not on this site too!


We seem to have the same success rate bug here that we occasionally have on the cryptograms site.

1. DLyne October 1, 2008, 1:32 am 2/1 200% 25504.0 sec. 156.0 pts. 312

Please look into this. Thanks.

Question Bug Hypothesis


I have a hypothesis for what might have caused this - I'll let you decide if it's remotely viable or not.

Given that it is 2am Oct.1, and the avg. time for this player is over 7 hrs, is it possible that the extra puzzle is actually one that was started last month and solved this month?

Hi flutefish -

Thanks for catching this. I've applied just now the same fix that I applied to Cryptograms.org earlier last month. So far it seems to have worked there (fingers crossed), so I hope for the same success here.

Cheers -

- Stephen

Question Success Rate changed

What would cause it to my completion rate is less than it really is?

It is saying I solved 137 of 138 puzzles
I know I have solved every puzzle in December and
my success rate went from 100% two days ago to 99.2

Ever since we were allowed to return to complete puzzles
I have solved every one. I am not a speed demon but I am
100% for November and December. The lifetime success is
skewed because of not being able to go back in August.

Just Curious - thanks
