In the recently posted Beginner Symmetry puzzle, it's possible to turn the alpha helix into a pi helix for a huge boost in the score:
I don't think this was intended. For future purposes, could constraints be placed (say, require a minimum distance between the first and the last residues) on this type of puzzle to discourage the use of high-scoring but unnatural artifacts?
