Post Green Bar indicating a puzzle has been completed
I started on the Wed July 14 2021 puzzles a few minutes after the 24 reset. Several puzzles, but not all, had the the green bar showing when I just started.
I refreshed and the green bars remained.
I am not prevented from completing these puzzles but it is odd and distracting.

ETA: As I completed b[uzzles without the green bar, the bar did not appear. It confused me as to what was completed and what was not.
If I reloaded puzzle I thought I had completed, but had no green bar, I did get the statement(s), with the word(s) in red that stated I had previously solved the puzzle. I am grateful that is still working.

I just began for the day. All 4x4s, the 5x5 easy, the 6x6, the 8x8, the killer and the sudoku medium were all green prior to starting.

Also, today's daily point total appears to be being added on to yesterday's.

It seems something went wrong with the daily recompute / reset, will investigate..

edit: for some reason the job that does this (between midnight and 1 minute past) did not run.

I ran it manually just now. The green "solved indicators" may still be off today.

I had noticed this issue earlier as well. Which is why I rushed to do the Killer and the Sudoku, so that I would not accidentally forget about them, since users don't get "go to the next puzzle" for those.

It might be an idea to adjust the script so that it detects whether a puzzle has been done for the day, then telling it to turn the indicator green on the bar. Obviously this is more resource intensive, but for situations like today, such a script might help users avoid confusion.

Right now my puzzles done indicators really look off, but as far as I can tell I have done all the puzzles. Hope I am not mistaken - would be a shame to ruin my yearly streak on such a glitch.

Yes, at the time I changed it so a separate log was kept of puzzles solved that day,
which is cleared at the start of each day. This is _much_ more efficient than
checking this at every page load.. (which is how it was done before).
