Could the high scores of puzzles be added togeather and shown as total points gained? Perhaps this could be an achievement?

We already keep track of that data, see attached screenshot, it's just not shown publicly since it gives an advantage to players that have been playing Foldit for a long time (and haven't changed usernames), so we would not make that an achievement.

Makes sense. Could it be shown just to the user? That way it is not shown to everyone, just them, and they could make a goal, ex. 250,000 points. And it dosen't look like all time. It looks like that they only played a few puzzles getting around 10,000 points each. Also, it would be good to see ingame as well.
