Re: Daily total does not include extras from previous days
Oh, and thanks for the congratulations folks. My wife thinks I'm insane, spending so much time doing puzzles, but I figure it helps keep my brain active as I get older. At least, that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it!

Re: Daily total does not include extras from previous days
Paul, I use the same excuse with Mr E. I can still compute. This site got me off of crosswords almost completely.

Marble,
I have no idea how many pts I have received in a single day. That stat is not one I care about , which is unusual for me.

The most points I ever got in a 24 hr period occurred when I finshed about 3 weeks of Extra puzzles - back of the envelope figuring - 8 x 21 + 7 ( for at least one 15 x 15) = 175 plus 10 pts for a bonus puzzle = 185 above the normal pt total for the day.

I think I was top earner in the world for about a week after that effort.

I am terrible. I chase points. I shouldn't be so obsessed by them. But I am.

I think Patrick may have moved one of the Tuesday puzzles to Thursday, thereby increasing the number of points available

No, all I did was remove the medium and difficult 5x5 on Tuesday.

I need to look at the daily total computation in any case, to see what makes most sense.
(I suppose if you also count Extra puzzles the daily total could get very high).
