Hello folks,

I have updated the programming for the TQOTD; you will note that the results page will load nearly instantaneously after you submit your answer.

This should be good news to all

Thank you,

I'll add some smiles if I answer TQOTD's correctly, of course!

I just want questions I can read in less than 5 seconds.

I was surprised when this happened last night. Thanks for fixing it.

Since I took a big gulp and wagered the max yesterday ... I was totally excited to see it working quickly. I have heart palipatations when I wager like that anyway but then to sit there and wait while that timer was going down was cruel and unusual punishment. Thanks mucho for fixing that sucker!

Thanks, Justin! I haven't tried it yet as sometimes I save my questions for a few days. It will be something to look forward to.

I've been holding off on taking my TQOTD - and I took them all today and even when I was working my guess out til "the end" - even had one literally at 29.5 - got it right - saw the answer & percentage ! However - I do have a question as it seems that the bottom scores don't update immediately - knowing that - I checked the leaderboards - and I have been scrolling and scrolling and scrolling - and STILL haven't found me - I did 9 questions today and only missed one (or maybe 10 and missed 2) - and in looking at the leader boards - I should actually be on top "at the moment" with the scores - even did a million point wager and won - but I know that doesn't count in the total...anyone know on this?

I guess I forgot to say that I earned 8,000+ points (not including the wager) - and feel like I should not be #9,190 of 44,042 based on the TQOTD Leaderboard of 7K plus being number one...

Hi Lorri,
I noticed my TQOTD ranking wasn't updating, either. I discovered that what I had to do was log off and then back in again in order for the update to register. There was a bug report filed about this, but apparently this is just how the current system works. Here's a link to the bug page:

Go to Fixed Errors and read 17.001 for more info.

As to your current place on the leaderboard, remember that today is only July 5th. I don't know how many of your nine or 10 questions were sent out in July, but if you got one or two of your July ones incorrect, that could explain why you're not near the top. You also have to take into account your average answering speed and bonus points awarded. I've only missed one TQOTD so far for July, but my ranking at the moment is 366.

I hope that helps!

Instead of logging off and back on, you can also see your current rank by looking at your public profile, if you click on your name in any Chat posting or any standing list (including WR/WM, tournaments, etc). I don't think this info is available in MySploofus.

Geri- I could be wrong but I would expect the current month's TQOTD rank would be based on questions answered in July, not sent in July. Meaning it would work similar to the WPs, and your point total is based on whatever you answer in the current month. So June questions answered in July would count toward the July leaderboard....

Re the last post; that is incorrect. June questions answered in July do NOT count towards July TQOTD points.
Seems reasonable to me; otherwise the month scores are too manipulable.

Barry, does that mean that June questions answered in July don't count toward any month? Because the June leaderboard is already done... or does it keep shifting as people keep answering June questions?

Do any editors out there know for sure?

My observation is that Barry is generally correct. The TQOTD standings for a month seem to include only TQOTDs received AND answered in that month. Leftover TQOTDs from the prior month don't count toward TOQTD leaderboard ranking for either month, but are still good for points, level points and wagers until they expire.

okay - here's a question then - the points I earned for answering July questions (not counting won wager) is 5493 - I was keeping track of points earned on what I did today for a completely different reason - so I have them - based on the fact that answering speed is already figured in to what you are awarded for each correctly answered question - is it also true that more points are given after that fact that are not seen that manipulate the levels?

It now shows me (after the log out / log in) at - TQOTD Rank - Monthly: #877 of 44,049
however based on my point total I should actually show at 236 unless the points only count for you if you take it on the day it is delivered?

Additionally, I have checked the leaderboard and still have not found myself anywhere not at 877 and not at the "old" score.

As of about 2:40 PM EDT Sunday, 07-06-2008, for July TQOTDs, you are #1803 with 4,692 points. Sure you weren't counting a June TQOTD taken in July?

Also, my TQOTD mail is again working.

I hate that the rank for the daily questions doesn't update at the top of the screen anymore. I really miss that.
I have resorted to clicking on Sploofus Statistics at the bottom and hitting update every day. If there's an easier way, please let me know.

For me it is quick too, most of the time, but yesterday it took 10 seconds to load and I have a very high speed connection.
