Post Re: Rankings by year
My 2 cents worth:

When I checked the Year to Date listings before the end of the year, I was no. 1 in the US and no. 2 in world, second to Jpoos.

I believe I was ranked that way due to turning in a significant portion of the book puzzles.
I believe Jpoos was ranked as no.1 because that member has a knack for the timed puzzles.

My personal preference for doing year to date ranking would include timed puzzles and book puzzles, however I understand that not everyone is a speedy puzzler. I am not. Not everyone does book puzzles.

I think if Patrick could create a Year to Date ranking for REGULAR puzzles that would allow those who do not timed or book puzzles to rank themselves against others. However there is a difference between a subscriber and a non subscriber. A subscriber has access to two more regular puzzles. You can't make everyone happy.

I think it is reasonable to limit ithe Year to Date rankings to puzzles that are published in the calendar year.

Patrick would have to publish another book this year for anyone to get book puzzles to be added to their year to date points. The points for those puzzles would only add to the year to date totals through Dec 31. Doing older book puzzles would add to a member's total score, but not their year to date total.

Dec 31 timed puzzles would be an orphan. They are not added to point totals until Jan 1.

I do not know how hard it would be for Patrick to implement this system. He is the final arbiter of this discussion.

My apologies.
I have a tendency to overthink things.

I think having an annualised ranking is a good idea. But it would be even better if this could be done under each ranking category. Is this something that would be achievable, or would it require a huge amount of additional work?

At present, only 7 day and all time rankings are available under most categories, but you can also get 30 day rankings under the all puzzle category and a modified year to date ranking, also under the all category.

What about the dozen or more user submitted and special, one-off puzzles?

Beaker,
In my year to date totals, this is what is being included:
All the dailies since Jan 1, all the extras since Jan 1, and all the bonus puzzles since Jan 1.

I have not submitted a book puzzle, yet. I believe Patrick has removed that option for 2019.
I have been doing timed puzzles but have not received year to date points for them.

It seems that there is a bug in calculating the Year-To-Date score. The score calculated for me was perfect till I completed an extra from last year. This reset my Year-To-Date score to zero ranking me at the bottom. I next competed some of today's regulars and the scorecard started accounting for these. I did one more extra from last year and that too had the same effect on the score. I will send you some screenshots of the scorecards.

Just to clarify - are book puzzles being included in the year to date rankings?
