I just noticed the change from 75% to 65% and I'm curious about what prompted that, and how the value 65% was chosen.

This'll allow you to give up on 1 out of 3 puzzles of each type, without
the time affecting the top 65%.

I don't understand why where a page is inactive for more than half the total duration it is invalidated. I also wonder what it means that it is invalidated.

It is removed completely.
And to be precise, this only applies to times below 1 minute 10 for the 6x6 (for example).

mean, what if I did a 6x6 timed and knew I was really slow and would get a time of 3 minutes so instead of finishing the puzzle so that it counts as 3 minutes in the record, I left the page open for another 3+ minutes to invalidate it as a record? I'm a little confused...

Interesting strategy :-)
(won't work though for the above reason)
