Not sure if there is already a topic for this...

So I see we have a new message after puzzle submission which tells you how many points until the next bonus puzzle. Well, I got, "You are 39869 points away from your next bonus puzzle!" That's actually just the target but I'm about 40 points away...

Edit: That's odd... it did the above a few times but then now it works fine...

Yes, I thought you had had too many bonus puzzles already, hence the new, more challenging target [flapper]

But seriously, I was messing around with better ways to update the weekly totals,
and the scores got messed up a bit between 11pm and midnight (CET) last night [huh]

And after some hacking I now have a working (..) script that updates all totals
(weekly, monthly, regular, books, timed) in 13 (thirteen) seconds :-)

Previous script running time (an homage to brute force really): 53+ minutes...

Ooh wow! That's quite an improvement in time!

It was really necessary as well: the script of course runs right after midnight CET,
which meant it was hogging the server exactly at the busiest time..

I can't get to my bonus puzzle. I had passed the target yesterday, done some of it and saved it but didn't submit the solution. Now when I click on it, it says I need 50 more points but that's to the next target. So how do I get to the one I'm supposed to have now?

At first glance it's a bug introduced by the reordering of the icons [blink]
Will fix.
Edit: should be better now.

I know my computer is slow, but today the numbers aren't showing up immediately after they are entered plus I need alot more than 111 points for my next bonus......plus just going from a completed puzzle to the next is taking a long time......my computer or your system????

Bonus point amount has corrected itself!!!

Actually the bonus point amount is still a bit weird. I forgot to mention it yesterday. When the feature was first added, it said the first few times I needed x number of points until next bonus puzzle (x being the actual target). But then Patrick fixed something and it was fine until yesterday it did it again but only once.
