As far as I know, any newbie finishing the tutorial puzzles, gets an automatic link to the uppermost puzzle, instead of being directed to the puzzle menu.
There are two problems with that:
1. The uppermost puzzle has been a gallery puzzle for ages....so they get directed to a puzzle that doesn't DO anything when it comes to scoring.
2. There is no explanation on the whole scoring thing on real puzzles whatsoever. Maybe The last link after the tutorials should be an explanation to direct them to <15 puzzles, and then show them the real puzzle menu.
Just some suggestions...although I really think the first point should be addressed soon. The tutorial puzzles are good imo, but it doesn't prevent new puzzlers from being thrown into the deep end of the pool when they finally go for a real puzzle....directing them to a gallery puzzle makes it even deeper than it has to be :)
