The real score is 800

This feedback refers to puzzle 662, Blind Electron Density 4

This will happen if the lower score is not uploaded for the group before the soloist makes improvements to their score.

So if a soloist has a saved score of 800 and uploads for the group before any increase, the evolver target score will be 802.

If the soloist has saved a score of 800, but waits until they reach a score of 9620 to upload the 800 save, then the evolver target score will be 9622.

auntdeen - I think the problem being highlighted is that the 9622 score is not a true score ie nobody has got to 9622 pts (you couldn't on this puzzle). The high score just appeared out of nowhere, and the player concerned actually has a score of 800 pts.

Then the problem would seem to be the soloist score by enszyme currently at 9620 ( http://fold.it/portal/node/994192 ) - that appears to be a valid score.

enszyme was chatting with us. Suddenly he wrote "speaking with you, i did not notice that my score rose to >9000 ON THE SERVER. I don't know what i did (a receipe is running). Is this credible? can you verify on the server from your side? The members congratulated him. THEN he shared his solution with the group and I noticed that we only got a smaler (more realistic) score.

Note that for 661 Malaria, I also have some (realistic) scores a few points above what my PC ever recorded (in soloist and in evolver), but I could not verify because it was at night and after crashing the client.
(impossible to recover with abs_best in no track). This might be another problem type but may be it is linked?

Indeed enszyme's score on the server is a bug.
We haven't been able to pinpoint what has caused it yet, but hopefully will be able to on Monday (and we will update the scoreboard accordingly at that point).

Thank you for your honesty in reporting this, and our apologies to everyone who feared they had to aim for 9000 points on this puzzle... getting over 4000 is already quite remarkable!

jflat06 is still working on figuring out what happened, but in the mean time I've modified enszyme's individual and group score to exclude the bugged one.

Small suggestion: Is the total other score -4400 or about? Then the problem lies somewhere in the other score component. Happy newyear.
