 timed puzzle question
Hi,

It probably states this somewhere on the website, but on any given day to all players (at least for the first 2 puzzles for non-members) complete the same puzzles as each other in the timed puzzle section? Would seem better for comparison with other's times, but then again might make it too easy to cheat.

Thanks,
Herc

No, the puzzles are different for every user (though they are selected from the same pool of puzzles with about the same difficulty level). As you say, if everyone would see the same puzzles it would be far too easy to cheat using a second account.

There are of course by now quite a few puzzles which have been
solved by multiple people, so a fairer comparison of achieved
times is now possible.

(I do expect it won't make much difference to the rankings though [lol] )

Thanks, and yes I'm sure the rankings would remain the same, although on any given day it might change things up a little, you never know [tongue]
