What happens to the points in this one?

Do we get our points, or not?

No points!

No points, please! Some of us put this puzzle aside for awhile, so we could work on ones expiring sooner. Assigning points when a puzzle is only halfway through its life is unfair, especially since we were given no warning it was expiring early.

We all put it aside to work

We all put it aside to work on earlier expiring puzzles. It was off and on for me.

But, I agree there shouldn't be any points since they transfer to the new one.

This puzzle is not closed!

Puzzle is not closed. Points (zero per player) not assigned. This page still says it's open.

Is it closed, or not?

It will

" This puzzle will close in the next 24 hours..." and 'points' has been set to 0, so there will be no points awarded.

Sorry for the confusion.

Indeed this puzzle will have 0 points assigned once it closes.

You can see this at the top of the page:
Name: 890: CASP11 T0759: WeFold Round (CLOSED and reposted as 890b)
Status: Active
Created: 05/10/2014
Points: 0
Expires: 05/13/2014 - 19:00

The only reason I left this one open for 24 hours is previously players mentioned they didn't know a puzzle had been reposted (this is something we should add to the Notifications tab:
I was hoping that 24 hours would be enough time for everyone to notice.

Sorry for the confusion. Of course if a puzzle is reposted midway through, the original closed one should get 0 points assigned (and no categories)!
