Well.. you do realize you need to make the limit for all four sizes ?

Very bad news, that's very far from my possibilities, I am afraid I will continue being an angel.

I vote for a speed tortoise category. I'd be in for anything more liberal than 4x4 < 13 sec, 5x5 < 33 sec, 6x6 < 1 min 7 sec, and 8x8 < 3 min 48 sec.

Alright, but for a tortoise achievement the limits would be minimums [lol]

Minimums on the same day?

I'm thinking also over the current year.

And you'd lose the achievement as soon as you get one of the "speedy" ones of course.

The level of variation is weird. Today I was top 25 with 6:24.xx. A few days ago, I was outside the top 25 with 4:50.xx! Really weird! Or maybe just random fluctuations?

Paul,
I agree the level of variation is very strange.
I got into the top 25 on Friday which is now a lucky occurrence.

The times are getting faster.

With the 8x8 the combination of having 1 puzzle a day + the larger puzzle meaning more opportunities for things to go wrong probably does make the standings way more variable.

I also know from my standpoint if I get a sticking point and know that a puzzle in my personal top 100 isn't possible, I usually just kill it and move on, even though I could probably get points out of a few of those puzzles.

That said, yeah, I wonder how the average time now compares to when I started (Which, thinking about it, is almost 10 years ago, right? Just lining things up to where I was in life). I know I've recorded top 5 personal times for every size and we're not even a month into the year.
