Simple solution really: just solve them ~ 2 seconds sooner [lol]

Thanks beaker

That was my only bonus point in the last 7 days. Up to a few months back, I used to average close to 35 points a week. This week I’ve only scored 29 points.

And it seems to be getting harder all the time. I see that a time of 5:34 was not good enough for top 25 yesterday. [scared]

It certainly is getting harder, to get into the top 25.

I know! Today, I did a time of 5 min 51.932, which currently has me hanging on in 19th place, 0.022 seconds behind 18th place. If I finish 26th again today, I'm going to be particularly annoyed. [cursing] :-)

I have (along with many others I am sure) attained 28 points a week for as long as I can remember.......getting to a sub 6:00 for the 8x8 timed would be an utter fluke IF it happened :-)

On today's 8x8 I managed a 6:50 which on any given day would probably be good for 2 points but my timed 8x8 will not come anywhere near that......AAAGGGHHH [cursing]

I think you and I are going to have to accept that bonus points on the timed puzzles are something to be cherished, rather than something that we expect to achieve on a regular basis. What’s seldom is wonderful!

Got a 1:35 today, but our internet (once again) stopped working during the few seconds the site was trying to hand in my puzzle.
Now 0 points, instead of 4 or 5 [cursing]
