I am not sure if the dev's made the corrections in scoring that they mentioned in another feedback; but I have noticed a new, huge error.

People who haven't played the game in over two years have global soloist scores!

How did that happen? See the attached screenshot of one of my team's alumni, who hasn't played since November 2009, yet has a global soloist score of 31.

This is related to the fix for the scoreboards, which caused some very old puzzles to suddenly be counted again. It should be fixed now. Let me know if you see any other hiccups.

The scoreboards for puzzle types is erroneous. Old players are still ranked high. Current ranking for active players is incredible.

Thanks Bruno! We saw this mentioned in chat a few days ago and are still looking into it...
