Congratulations from this part of the world for the third baby coming! and, undoubtedly, doing all puzzles (and specially the timed) with two kids around looks very very difficult. And by the way you do not need any excuse, all of us, as human, have the right (guaranteed by the Constitution?) of making many mistakes so we make them and it is wonderful when they are so fun and innocent (having no other consequences).

Congratulations from down here as well. I have enough trouble finding the focus to do the puzzles with a roommate my age. I can't imagine even getting past the medium 8x8 with two kids, much less while pregnant.

As for the rest of discussion that's gone on over the past day:

I'm perfectly fine with this so long as there are enough timed points to overcome 112 potential book points/week (Or, alternatively, we could make the main rankings page that gets pulled up just the untimed + timed, either way).

Taking 96 out of 105 points leaves little room for typos.

You'd be surprised how often I'll guess and test on a 6x6 and have to rework because I guessed wrong. I feel like a lot of the time what you really can't afford to do is stop putting something in.

I've made it so that only the difficult puzzles of the new book (32 out of the total 102)
get you 12 points each.

Usually, I do my calcudoku to relax after the kids are in bed. :)

It's still one book puzzle per day right? 12 points for each book puzzle. Correct me if I'm wrong, but that's 12x7=84 book puzzle points per week.

That would be, and I'm not sure where I got 16/book puzzle.

A lot of work for Patrick, certainly, since probably it would require unify, reconfigure and "nesting" the rankings. (By the way, particularly myself I am more interested in having fun with that new "12x12 only" puzzles book, 101? 16 "bonus" points?).
Might have been here, but either way.

Patrick, I have no programming experience, which makes it to where I have no idea approximately how much time it takes to accomplish some things. Where exactly does adding three separate rankings fall in terms of difficulty and time consumption? I assume it's not on near the same scale as something like the ELO rankings you've wanted to put in would be, but other than that(I'm assuming that the easiest thing to do with that would be to take someone else's code and modify it, but I have no idea A, how picky people would be about having there code modified, or B, if that would even work), I haven't even a benchmark to compare it against.

The totals for each user (and the 30 day average, and nr. consecutive days solving a puzzle)
are kept with their account, and adjusted when a solution is approved.
The "split totals" would have to be added to this. This requires modifying the user table,
and updating code that does these adjustments (regular puzzle submissions, book puzzle submissions, timed bonuses).

Next is the design of the ranking table itself, this would probably be in the form of additional columns in the table.

The final steps are getting the text translated from various sources, and testing..

Not really. In this case the code required is not complicated, it is simply a lot of "plumbing".

I'm guessing it's anywhere between 4 and 8 hours of work.

I have completed the puzzles today and I have 511 points.

Total of the last 7 days = 419 ( according Sneaklyfox )

I missed 2 puzzles 9x9 -2x10 points

419-20 = 399

7 days of book puzzles +7x12=84

399+84 = 483

In this period I completed 3 or 4 bonus puzzles = 30 or 40 points more

483+30=513 or 483+40=423

which don't match with my 511 points.

Correct.

You did not submit a book puzzle yet today. So that's 6x12 = 72.

So 399 + 72 = 471.

You completed 4 bonus puzzles, so your total is 471 + 40 = 511.

This info is in your history, isn't it?

Oh, At "my 23H" ( 00H00 there ) the first thing I do is to submit the book puzzle and today I forgot.
Excuse me and thanks very much.
