It appears to have done, and points have been awarded.
Some of us never even got a chance to look at it

Imo - from a players perspective it is not helpful to have to immediately post ones last best score from the previous puzzle.
This type of sudden puzzle closure may cause players to immediately post old scores to avoid penalties.
Generally something I avoid but seem to be forced into now.

Sorry everyone for the confusion! Puzzle 959 will be brought back to life shortly (or possibly reposted as a clone of the original puzzle)—we're still not sure why it closed prematurely.

There really needs to be immediate feedback from the devs on this issue. It should have been cleared up long before now. Is it closed for good or not? My two clients are still showing 3 days, 16 hours left in this puzzle.
