View Full Version : My average speed?

03-04-2009, 08:39 PM
Hi! I just started playing here a couple days ago and I'm addicted already.

Just wondering if there's somewhere I can see my average solving speed? The top corner gives my success rate and total score, but I can't find my average speed.

I checked the stats so far for March, and I'm not listed on there. I'm PRETTY sure my average speed would be faster than the lowest on the list there, so I'm guessing that my stats just haven't been processed yet because I'm new? But I'd like to be certain, so is there a way to see my own score whether or not it's on the fastest list?

And if it is just because I'm new, how long is the delay? How often does the list update with refreshed scores?

hdunham, please click on the attachment below. Then you will see that at the time of this posting, you are solving at an average rate of 65.7 seconds per cryptogram.

Ah, thanks, I see that's listed in the high-score listing.

I was wondering why I wasn't listed, still, since that is a speed that would be on the charts, and I have over 75%... then I finally noticed "Only players who are ranked in the top 50 of that month's high-score challenge, and who have a solving percentage of 75% or better, are eligible for this contest."

Phew... I've got to play a lot more still to get up there.

BTW love your avatar...

Thanks, hdunham. As others on this site can tell you, I change avatar images more frequently than underwear. (Mom always warned me in case I got hit by a truck)

You only change your avatars every week or two. Hopefully you change other things more often.
