Post timed puzzle points not right?
On the ranking page it says 15 timed puzzle points, but shouldn't that be 7x3=21?

I notice the same with other players....

Same for me, all this is probably related to the bug reported by sneaklyfox (the leap second?, according to Patrick), in my case the 7-day is wrong by 16 points (574 vice 590, a difference of 6 in timed puzzles, 15 vice 21, as you, and 10 in books). Also the 30-day average of everybody seems to have decreased by about 6,xx (like when from one day to the following the water level decreased in the film "The Bridge on the River Kwai" :-)) while the absolute totals seem to be OK.

No, no leap second involvement (though, maybe from now on I'll just blame all bugs on the "leap second" :-) )

The first reported bug by sneaklyfox was because the solution entries in the database
are sometimes not ordered chronologically. For this reason I had to add an extra date check.
Because of this date check, and the fact that I was now comparing with "year-month-day 00:00:00",
3 of the 21 entries were dropped, becaused timed bonuses are stored with a solving time 00:00:00.

3 further entries were dropped because the timed bonuses apply to the puzzles of the day before,
i.e. the bonuses from 7 days ago apply to puzzles from 8 days ago, so were no longer counted.
Trying to figure out what to do about these.

Edit: things should be better now.

Then that difference of 10 points (in my case) was due to bonus (I misunderstood this and thought it was a solution corresponding to the "Large ..." book). Thank you, the 7-day is working OK now, but apparently the 30-day average is still having problems? (it has increased by half of the level lost ... [confused]).

One day a while back I only did 2 timed puzzles, so for my Last 7 Days score was 20 ((3 * 6) + 2) for a few days. Yesterday I noticed it had jumped to 23... I was quite certain I never earned more than one point per timed puzzle (too slow! [sad] ), so having more than 21 didn't seem right. Also, several of the people who manage to finish their Extra puzzle each day are now showing 64 points for the Last 7 Days... Apparently the board is now reporting the Last 8 Days worth of puzzles!

The script that computes the weekly totals "misbehaved", it's been corrected now.
