Seeing how yesterday's recalculation hasnt fixed things, I'll post it again, as it still needs an answer

For clarification, is the 4 month window calculated by month, or is it 120 days?
It would be great to set the record straight here in fine detail, once and for all - for example...

Today is the 30th Mar, the window is 14 days long, so it stretches from the 17th to the 30th. This means the first scoring puzzle is 405 which ended on the 20th, and 404 is dropped, as it finished on the 16th which is 15 days ago, and therefore the first puzzle outside of the window.

Thanks

The window for week, month, and total (4 months) is 7, 30, and 120 days before the current time. Puzzles that closed within that timeframe should be counted.

Is this dynamic, with score totals changing possibly every day as puzzles fall out of the windows, or are totals only adjusted when a puzzle closes, and the windows are static until the next puzzle closes?

They should be adjusted as puzzles fall out of the windows.

The question is whether the start and end dates of the windows change every day, or are only updated when puzzles close?

If a puzzle closed 6 days ago, will it fall off the "Weekly" scores automatically in another day or two, even if no other puzzles have closed?

Is it the puzzle closing that triggers the re-calc of scores, or a simple nightly cron job?

The end dates should change as puzzles move out of the window, not only when puzzles close.
