Hello,

Before ending Mini-CASP Puzzles, I had 540-550 points (~80 place in global soloist rank), or something around that. Now my score is 439 and I'm on 103 place. That's strange, or I'm missing something?

My Fold It! version stayed the same as far as I remember. I'm running WinXP SP3 and Nvidia GPU. If you need more information I'll be glad to provide it. No crash log, because game itself works.

Kind regards,
kret..

It sounds like some older high scores may have dropped off your tally. The total points are a sum of your points on individual puzzles over a rolling period - 3 or 4 months months I think.

My Soloist score dropped from 1200 to 1093 today, with no puzzles closing. Funny how that could happen....

Evidently there is some score "adjustments" going on at the project, and they don't care to admit or announce it.

I expect the usual favored group will go up, and the not-so-favored will go down.

Only the global points of the last 4 months count. After this period they'll be deleted.

So kret lost in the last few days 96 points from 135: E-Coli (Expired: 04/07/2009, points deleted about 08/08/2009) and 92 points from 137: Rosetta Decoy (Expired: 04/17/2009, points deleted about 08/18/2009)

Brick lost 84 points from 137: Rosetta Decoy (Expired: 04/17/2009, points deleted about 08/18/2009)

It seems that sometimes the staff forgets to delete the old global points in time and when they finally do they delete points of multiple puzzles at once. This may cause these occasional big drops in points.

Global points are count in 3mo window. Not a bug. Closing.
