I'm not a newbie but I didn't become addicted to WPs until last April. Question: how is it I get from 89 to 32 to 99 to 33 in two days? Does it have something to do with whether you do the day 1 puzzle just after midnight on day 1 and does it make up for itself on day 30 (or 31 or once in a while day 29)?
Inquiring minds want to know much more than whatever Brittany is doing tonight.

I think it has more to do with how many people take the WP before and after you, and how well (or badly) they do on it. As more people do the WP, the more you go up and down. I just go from 54 to 170.

I would say one factor is the time of day you take it. If you take a puzzle at 8:30am or pm, then you will pass a lot of people who are in front of you, because they have not taken it as yet. Then you spend the rest of the puzzle sliding backwards as these people take the puzzle and re-pass you. If you take the puzzle at 7:30 am or pm, almost everyone who is going to take it has already done so. Your position will appear much more stable in that situation.

I'm all over the place in WP. The one time my score was probably going to be in the top 20 ,maybe even the top 10, my 'puter froze..
I'll bet they heard me yell the next block over!
