I use this a lot, as I suspect many of us do.

I had issues with this 'button' on the Mon Jan 22 7 x 7 Difficult puzzle.

When I did this puzzle last evening, I did not finish it. I ALWAYS use the Save button to save my progress.
When I came back to the puzzle today, my safe was not restored.
While I was doing the 7 x7 puzzle, I tried using the Save button several times, and it did not seem to work.
I never got the time stamp which indicates that puzzle was saved.

After I finished the 7 x 7 difficult, I went to the Sudoku easy, to test the save on that puzzle.
It appeared to work. I got the time stamp of my save.

Lately I'm seeing database "holdups", where apparently the load on it is too high,
during which it ignores many requests (easily 30-50 or so). It might have been one of those in this case.

I still have to investigate what's causing this.
(it may be, for example, that the load generated by someone requesting an "all time World ranking" list
is too high)(but I don't know yet).

Yeah... It does take a while. I have noticed this over the months as i am checking where I am overall (by now I'm in the top 900 I think [drool])

@pnm:
It could have just been that demand was high during the time that I was working the puzzle.
But I doubt it.

I did not return to this puzzle this morning until after I solved a few others.
I had no problems with saving while working those other puzzles.
And when I was done with the 7 x 7, I did a test with the Easy Sudoku and had no problem saving.

Also, I am pretty good about saving puzzles if I am about to leave a session, or change puzzles.
This particular puzzle was not saved from hours earlier.

@ Marble,
Congrats on breaking into the top 900.
For me, it was milestone to realize I had earned 1 000 pts.
It takes a while to gain ground. You need to stick with it.

I think you need to ask your parents if they would consider spending the money to gift you a subscription. Those extra points are worth it. [biggrin]

I hope so!

Yeah, I just broke 8,000 points a few minutes ago I think which is great for me. It's actually 8,032, which is weird because I am 832nd all time [scared]

Also, I made one of my classmates join the website! [tongue] I'm recruiting people!
