Post Re: puzzle a tempo
(Just wanted to mention that on most days, a 6x6 under 20 seconds pretty much would cause you to be the fastest... I think there's only been about 10 or so legitimate times under 20s, by only 2 different people. Someone wouldn't just get in a lucky shot and make a time under 20s all by themselves unless they'd been at the top of the timed rankings quite frequently.)

Also, @pnm - just wondering, is there some exception set for me or do you have to process my records manually every time? :D

In these particular 3 cases there was an initial delay of about 40 seconds,
so the final time came out to be a bit less than 1 minute.

There's a blacklist, but there's also a whitelist, otherwise I'd get spammed with warning messages [blink]

you can see, I'm very slow in solving timed puzzles even 4x4
and all general puzzles as well.
When there's a time to beat, I try to do it as fast as I can but I'm never the fastest.

You're right, it didn't happen very often in your case: once on Feb 9th,
once on September 5th, and once on August 18th (last year).

In all these cases a full 6x6 solution was entered in less than 20 seconds,
which caused them to be flagged.

I really feel astonished: I don't remember such fast times [confused]
And I must say I have never received emails concerning this...
Anyhow, thank you for your words (I understood you believe me)
