Post Daily total does not include extras from previous days
I finally got around to completing last week's 15x15 today, but the 15 points are not included in my daily total. However, it is included in my history and my overall total is correct.

Not a bug really. I was just wondering does this always happen?

The 15 pts would be in the EXTRA, and in the TOTAL rankings

They are not in the REGULAR rankings.

Not sure if that helps.

The daily total (what you can see on the puzzle pages via pulldown; not on the rankings page) combine all the day's points - except the 15x15 when finished after the day it's published and, I imagine, some or all other 'retro' puzzles as well.

I learn something new everyday.

Thanks Jaek

ETA: I looked at the pull down menus.
I guess Paul was using the 'My History' choice.

I use the green bar to see what puzzles I have done, and what puzzle to do next.

Thanks jaek. That confirms what I thought might be the case. I managed to score 119 points in total yesterday (including 22 for two book puzzles) and I think that's my highest ever daily total.

Paul,
Because Rankings does not deal with daily totals, I ignore that.
I guess that comes from the habit that if time is short, I skip the Extra puzzle. I will come back to it. (But I was probably a member for about 18 months before I learned that Extras had a month before they expired. [scared] )

I do look at the rankings daily (I am obsessed.)
I can catch it when someone (in my country) has turned in Extra puzzles, or sometimes Books puzzles.

Congrats on getting a 'best' on your daily totals.

Also, how do you tell that you got a daily personal best on points? Do you just remember the most points you've ever gotten in a single day or is there a statistic somewhere?

It's the highest daily total I can remember. I don't keep a record of it anywhere. I guess I could go back through my history and check it, but that would be fairly time consuming and I'm already struggling to get a full quota (including two book puzzles) done every day.

I think Patrick may have moved one of the Tuesday puzzles to Thursday, thereby increasing the number of points available on an alreadynpoints have day. That, combined with the fact that I solved a bonus puzzle yesterday and completed the 12x12 and was much later than usual completing the 15x15 makes me fairly certain that it's a new record for me.

Of course, it would be easy to beat that by storing up a whole load of nearly completed extra puzzles and then submitting them one after the other.
