As long as you are revisiting this how about listing the longest streaks of consecutive days doing every daily puzzle?

Well, only revisiting after user request..

"longest 100% streak" will take some programming to find out,
will try to find some time for that.

"As long as you are revisiting this how about listing the longest streaks of consecutive days doing every daily puzzle?"
quoting mparisi

perhaps it would be mparisi on top
well that is as it is, also interesting would be other solvers stats of solving every puzzle every day
the mind boggles, well, mind does

The problem as I see it is, you either need to have a specific definition on 100% or you have to have a bunch of tables.

Is it everything including subscriber only puzzles? That leaves out a whole bloc of solvers.
Does it include just the puzzles available to non-subscribers? That let's a lot of solvers (myself included) off the hook.
Does it include at least one timed puzzle of each size per day? Does it include at least 2 now and 3 back before subscriptions? 4 now and 3 before subscriptions?
Does it include the regular sudoku for 0 points?

"off the hook" indeed, wait until you hear the punishment for people who don't solve every puzzle every day [mad]

Simplest would be all universally accessible Calcudoku puzzles.

I agree that mparisi's suggestion would be an interesting statistic. Also it is clear that it is a statistic that would nicely and impressively highlight mparisi's prowess. Good for mparisi for that.

Also jaeks's points are well expressed and pertinent.

If it is a suggestion that is to be seriously considered, I would once again suggest that the 12x12s and any other multi day puzzles be considered for completeness on their last day of eligibility for points rather than on their first.

I agree with both. The listing should be for "consecutive days earning a gold star" (thus excluding timed puzzles, killer sudokus and the ordinary sudoku) – but with the exception proposed by sjs34. However, if implementing that exception would mean too big of a programming workload, I think a "consecutive gold stars" listing would still be interesting even without it.
"Interesting" to me means that I might have a remote chance of actually appearing in it :-)
