Why does puzzle 1924 score so much lower than prior designable link puzzles? There is no change in the objective bonuses, and there seems to be little change in the designable section.

This is actually a completely different setup from previous puzzles since we are asking you to design a linker between a different set of LCB1-LCB3 termini. It's possible that it is harder to increase your score dramatically in this different configuration. However if you are just talking about the absolute sizes of the score, those are not comparable between puzzles.
