Default Seems to be a problem with looping

Never mind. My problem with a closed loop of puzzles seems to have gone away.

Glad it seemed to work itself out! That should never happen though, so I've made a slight code tweak to prevent edge cases like this from (hopefully) ever happening again. Thanks!

Thanks for taking care of that code! (Could you please just clone yourself and provide tech support for all the frozen websites and glitchy software out there?! We need you.)

Default 100.14%!!!

I have heard of athletes giving 110% but I didn't know you could get more than 100% in acrostics. But Svenska did for January. Just sayin'

Now I'll be accused of cheating again.

*sad face*

I don't get that either, Hootmon; I can only think it was a result of my getting kicked off a puzzle mid-game, and logging back in to re-play.

I don't think you were cheating, just a glitch in the system. But the results for last month still have you in first.

Default super genius types and typists

The fastest solves on a 12 clue puzzle are generally about 7 seconds per clue. I seriously doubt anyone, mystic, savant, mutant or otherwise, can read a clue, think of an answer and type it in in less than an average of 13 or 14 seconds. There is obviously a way to freeze puzzles, solve them, then quickly type in the answer. The time to type in a previously solved puzzle would likely be about the 1 second per letter that the fastest solvers accomplish

moreover, I've just completed several longer puzzles and did them in times less than the average (by a significant amount) but only received between 100 and 200 points. As difficult as it must be to assign a measure to each puzzle that properly rewards quick solves, it is apparent that the present system unduly rewards short puzzle solvers. The clues are consistent enough that if a method of scoring was used that gave x points for each letter and a 3 point bonus for each second less than, say, three seconds for each letter overall, I think it would become a far fairer scoring system.
