Glitch in the system?
 
I don't get it. I looked on this month's high score, success rate, and fastest times stats, as I usually do, to see how I am doing comparatively. I see my rank on high score, which isn't so high this month because I am not able to play as much as I'd like. I cannot see myself in the list for success rate (even though I have a 100% success rate for around 275 puzzles solved for the month), nor can I see my time, which is around 85 seconds this month. I have always been able to see the stats for all three for the current month, but now cannot. Suggestions? What am I missing? Is it a glitch? Do I have to obtain a certain number of points in order to be considered in each of the three categories? Maybe that's it. Can anyone enlighten me?

Iltquilt, you have to be in the top 50 in points to see your stats in the success rate and speed categories.

LilyH, Is it the top 50 for the month?

Yes, top 50 in points per month to see your ranking in speed/percentage. If you're in the top 100, you'll be on the points chart, which will let you look at your % and speed. Otherwise, check out the "My Scores" tab and click on the "This Month" over your personal stats chart. It won't show rankings, but you can see your time, %, # of games attempted/completed, and accumulated points. (Not in that order.)

Iltquilt, I see you at #66 in the monthly 100. You don't qualify at the moment for the speed & percent competitions, but your stats are in there. Hope that answers your question.

Right, that's what I see, but as I said, I have a 100% success rate this month with about 300 puzzles completed, but I do not see myself on that high scores list. I check "my scores" often and "this month" and "lifetime", as well as the current month's stats. But I am not on the success rate list even though I have a 100% success rate for the month. So, either something else is factoring in (like I haven't completed as many puzzles as others in the list) or there is a glitch. I should be in the top 20 for success rate for the month, but am not. I also have an average time arount 85 seconds for the month, but do not appear on the list of top 50 even though people with slower times appear. Again, what am I missing?

You have to make the top 50 in POINTS to be considered for the stats & percent contests. Play more.

i knew i had seen that info somewhere, and here it is:

when you go to the 'high scores' page, click on 'monthly competitions' and then on 'success rate competition', here are the details shown there:
In the success-rate challenge, players compete to achieve the highest success-rate percentage for puzzles solved vs. puzzles played. Only players who are ranked in the top 50 of that month's high-score challenge are eligible for this contest. (Ties are broken by total accumulated points.)

and for the 'fastest solver competition':
"In the fastest-solver challenge, players compete to achieve the lowest average solving time for all puzzles solved during the competition month. 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."
