I am terribly sorry, Hanto... but hopefully my reply to your other feedback explains why those older solutions had to be expunged: their scores are meaningless. This is why it looked to some players as "cheating" and to others as "this is the worst client ever".

This is, sadly, the sacrifice for using devprev (as all saved solutions in main are still shareable and usable), so we cannot thank all you devprev users enough for your willingness to help the project by risking these types of occurrences.
Foldit would not exist without you, and we promise to try to minimize these kinds of disturbances going forward.
