Am assuming the extra puzzle has to be completed within 24 hours.....YES??

No, as it says on the "subscribe page", they can be solved any time (!)

I'm a bit confused about that part too. I thought that maybe extra puzzles don't start counting 8 points until after June 1st. There were some "extra" puzzles before June 1st that we could solve but it didn't yield any points and I would think it's the same if you go back to those dates before June 1st. Or maybe you only start getting extra puzzles from the day you subscribe? But that doesn't appear to be the case either...

1. the extra puzzles from before June 1st (medium 4x4's) were for testing, you don't get points for solving them
2. yes, that's the plan: as a subscriber, you can go back up to a month, but not before your start date
(but I still have to put that in, right now you could subscribe on June 16th, for example, and then do
all extra puzzles from June 1-15)

For clarification, does this mean that we could still gain points from those if we were, say, a day late, or would those be retroactively removed?

Yes. For example, say you sign up June 5th, and today it's June 8th:

...
solve extra puzzle of June 4: not accessible
solve extra puzzle of June 5: ok, 8 points
solve extra puzzle of June 6: ok, 8 points
solve extra puzzle of June 7: ok, 8 points
solve extra puzzle of June 8: ok, 8 points

Edit: this should now be in effect, so you could test it by trying to access the extra puzzle of June 1st
(since you signed up on the 2nd).
