I was #14->#12 solo, I get rank 10 in last puzzle and now i`m #22 solo... Some misscalculation?

Hi Rav, I think your 1579(!) soloist points go back to "400: De-novo Freestyle 4", which ended Feb 23rd. That's 4 1/2 months ago, and I understood that soloist points are supposed to expire after 4 months, so perhaps that expiry is manual and a bit error prone? Anyway, you earned 231(!!) points from Feb 12th to Feb 15th inclusive, so if that period was expired with the close of this last puzzle it's well possible you could have slipped a couple of ranks. Do you remember what your soloist points total was a couple of days ago?

Perhaps we only need more transparency on the soloist points' best before dates, and some insight as to whether the process of expiring date ranges is automatic or manual.

Looks like the miscalculation is real... I conducted an "audit" of the current top 10 players by summing their soloist scores, and the numbers would only work out if the cutoff used was Feb 23rd/Puzzle #400 per gramps. This doesn't seem right, as the moving window is only supposed to be 4 months long.
