Can anyone tell me if we are going to receive the results of the WordPuzzles anymore? I know Justin stopped listing the entire list of results, but we had been receiving our personal results for each puzzle via message. I think I was actually number one for the Floral Movies puzzle. UGH!!! What's the point of taking the puzzle if you don't get the results?

Perspicacity ?

No results sent to us, and no bonus points awarded, so the Leaderboard is meaningless. I realize that Justin has done a lot of work over the last few days, but I sure hope he can get the WP results/scoring back to where it was.

And it sure would make sense to set the WP leaderboard back to zero for everyone so we can have a fair contest through the end of the month.

Color me weird, but I haven't missed the Word Puzzle Loser messages and the few hundred extra points a day. I enjoy the puzzle for the challenge, and if this outage has the extra bonus of taking away cheaters' incentive to do so, I'll enjoy it while it lasts.

Which leads me to ask: Just how badly does one have to do at a WP not to get a "winner" notice afterward? I can't recall a single instance of not having received a winner notification (this week excepted), and I've had some pretty dismal WP showings.

I think Dave has a great idea!! If we could reset for a short month for October, at least it would be a fair contest. Once the bonus points are being awarded again, could this reset be considered??

Okay, call me crazy, but I don't understand.
It seems to me that bonus points ARE being awarded, or wouldn't all the word puzzle scores end in zero?
If the bonus points are not being awarded, why do the scores on the leaderboard all end in odd numbers?

The only notice I get about a WP score is what pops up on my screen when I'm finished with it and there's a blue ribbon picture.

I just wrote I had NEVER received a PM with where I placed on the leader board ... then I realized I do receive that. Goes to show how important it is to me. Can't do anything with these points anyway, so what's the difference?

Bonus points were added until the major Sploofus restructuring began last Sunday a little before 8 PM. Since that time bonus points have not been awarded. Also if you were late in taking the puzzle on Sun. you also lost your puzzle points (up to 5,000 points). Therefore the leaderboard does not fairly reflect this month's point earnings.

Asor, I think everyone who completes a WP gets some bonus points, and (when the system's working) a message notifying them of that. I've finished out of the Top 100 numerous times and still gotten my 201 or whatever points.

Thanks for the explanation, Anne. That makes perfect sense to me.
I never finish in the top 10 in scoring, so I didn't really miss the points.

I've only done two WPs this month due to a very busy work schedule. One was before the "upgrade" problems, and the other was last night. I had bonus points awarded as usual both times. The only difference was that I didn't get a PM this morning announcing my final position in the rankings for last night's puzzle.

Sorry to hear that the site problems have disrupted the friendly competition of the monthly race for the top WP spots. I hope Justin takes the time and effort to come up with a fair solution to the mess. Anne (Virtus), you'll always be tops in my book, no matter how many times the servers cheat you out of it.

Hmmm...Thanks to Dave, I have now realized that I did NOT get my bonus points for last night's game. I had forgotten I had points carry over from the last game of last month.

I really hope Justin gets this mess all straightened out!
