ZeroLeak7 can't open my Puzzle 1806 solution despite us being in the same group (Go Science).

When they try to load it, it gives this error:

"This solution was created by a different group and cannot be loaded."

I tried Googling the error but there didn't seem to be any recent instances of it.

I joined the group yesterday, so maybe something isn't updating quickly enough?

In Discord, people seem to recall there being some kind of restriction where you can't upload solutions to puzzles that are already in progress when you join a new group.

If that's the case:

1. The error message needs to be more clear.

2. The shared solution shouldn't appear in the group solutions list since nobody else can use it.

LociOiling: wiki sez: "Another restriction on evolver play involves when a player joins a group. Players can't evolve solutions to puzzles that were open when they joined a group. Only puzzles that open after a player joins a group are available to evolve. "

I agree this error message should be more clear.
