Panther,
Many congratulations!!
(And I'm sorry I haven't checked the forums in the last few days, it's just that I was too busy in my fruitless chase.)
Best,
Jaek

Perhaps my attempt at levity was a little misguided. When I passed Picklepep at 80016 to take over the number 4 spot, it was a hollow milestone because piklepep has not been active for some time. I also knew Jaek was quickly gaining on me and for me, the number 4 spot was going to be a short time position. When Jaek did pass me , our scores were slightly over 81000. Since number 4 is as high as I will ever get, I thought I would use that event to congratulate jaek ; in my own way of coarse!

"Epic Race" is in the world standings near the 98,000 (closing in on 100,000)........I need a younger brain to stay ahead of the users charging up the "points ladder".........I do hope to get to THE milestone by mid September but know that bertoldo and agnostico will beat me to THE number and possibly bram and nicow as well........oh well, such is life!!

I confess I didn't get it. But with this explanation I see that it was, in fact, pretty clever. Well done.

"As high as I will ever get???!!!" Panther, maintain hope. Persistence pays. I am world #3 all time. I should properly be #10 but picklepep, danvijan and sneaklyfox dropped out, fuzzystat and nicow never subscribed and fzpowerman47 and nika99 lowered participation.

I always thought the race was to 83000 points, so as far as I'm concerned no one has won yet

And I thank my "lucky stars" that the above happened or else I would not be anywhere near the spot I am in (#10).......slowly accumulating points since 2010.......perseverance has "paid off" [smile] !!

Another milestone (sort of): Those who have subscribed since subscriptions were introduced around 1 June 2012 and who have solved all extra puzzles since then (including the Sunday no-op puzzles) may reach 10,000 "extra" points on the same day, about five weeks from now: Extra points, World (click on "All Time" between the two yellow bars).
