When quotes are first posted on the site, they don't have stats. They get solved for a few months to collect averages for time and how often they are solved. You're right; the success rates are usually less than 50%. All the Guests on the site - and the members who don't care about their competitive stats - tend to bring down the averages.

You can't use hints when you're logged in. I wouldn't call it a failure. If you can't solve a quote with all the hints... that's a failure. :P Admin had to stop allowing Guests to set speed records because they were getting very low times on really hard quotes.

Hope that answers your questions.
