Post subject:  timed rankings display issue?

I just looked at the 6x6 Average of 65% best times page. Above the table of rankings is:

Your average: 112.165 = (54.036 + 54.886 + 56.052) / 3

While that 1m 52.165s average looks correct, the stuff to the right of the equal sign is pretty clearly from the Average of 3 best times page.

No big deal, but I do like to know what those numbers are. I'll never get the top score for a given day, but I can still try to finish ahead of my 65% average. And if that time slips by I can still try to finish ahead of that 65% time.

The 4x4 and 5x5 are displaying correctly for me.

I'll confirm that this isn't an individual bug, and is occurring for me as well, in what appears to be in the exact same fashion.

The oddest error, I always thought they all worked ok, no clue why the 6x6 failed...

Anyway, it's fixed now.

I'm thinking I should make the 65% table
"best 65% or 100", whichever is smallest
(otherwise the longer you play the harder it becomes to reduce that average)

Thanks for the quick turnaround.

Personally, I like the 65% cutoff. It's close to a complete average, but modified for those far outliers and puzzles that weren't finished. That said, I won't quit the timed puzzles in protest if you choose to change it. [smile]
