Todays (Thur's) Update:
I got my 5th best time on the 6 x 6. I was 26 on the list. Oh well.
I should get an extra point due to the 8 x 8


Were you not top 10 in the 8x8 on Thursday? By my reckoning, that would give you a 6 point day.

I managed to get 6 points yesterday with top 25s in both the 6x6 and 8x8. I got a particular buzz out of achieving a bonus point on a non subscriber only puzzle.

You are correct. I forgot that the points were going up for the top ten spots.

The 8 x 8s are where I can be occassionally competitive.

Gosh, I could have a ten-point day today!
2nd, 10th, and 5th... I'll get nine points at least, I think.
These new points are great! [thumbsup]

I love the new rankings. Whereas before I could only get extra points on the 8x8, I now occasionally get extra points in the 5x5 and 6x6. Definitely makes the timed puzzles more fun for me!

I think the new system is a theoretical improvement, but in my case it is even more frustrating as my best times tend to be just behind #25.

Well done! [thumbsup] That's a great tally from only three puzzles.

I still haven't managed a 7 point day, although I've had a number of 6 pointers. The closest I came was when I had a 6x6 in the top 25 and only missed out on a top ten in the 8x8 by around 15 seconds. I should get 3 points for today's 8x8, but no top 25s elsewhere.

Ouch! Only 11th in the 8x8 in 4:24 - that would usually be good enough for top ten. [cursing]

There was another late entry and I was only 12th. And eclipsegirl with 4:14 was only 11th - very unlucky.

What can I say?

The small puzzles are difficult for me to be in the top 25.

I am only competitve in the 8 x 8.
With the new system, I am consistently in the top 25 with the 8 x 8. I appreciate the extra points. But I am still very rarely in the top 10.
