I am in the US.I check only the US rankings because I think I would be not fare well when compared to the world.I thought I understood how the points were divvied up but I have a question or two.I know that daily puzzles that have a yellow underline are for subscribers only.I believe they are totaled under EXTRA when looking at the rankings.I know that a person can turn in a 12 x 12 anytime over the three / four day period.( I wish that would be true of 15 x 15 , too)So usually people who do all the puzzles are often tied in the EXTRA rankings, sometimes there is a person with a few more points because they turned in the 12 x 12 on a different day than other people. Or that has been my explanation for why someone has more points than others even though several people do all the puzzles.How can a member have 159 points in the EXTRA rankings over 7 days?There aren't that many extra points offered during the week.Thank you for trying to help my confusion.

So it is possible to do 10, for example,in a one week period (if you "saved them up").Or one extra 15x15 + 18 smaller extra puzzles = 15 + 144 = 159 points.Patrick
