Default Huge jump in average time

I just had my average time jump from 57.something to 65.something. I am not that slow... My average had been going down, and then this happened out of nowhere. Any tips on how I can fix this or what happened?

Default Average time

One or two bad times can skew the average time. The fewer puzzles solved during the month, the easier it is for a few to have a big impact. Look at your recent games and see if there is anything there that stands out.

Thanks. I've done over a thousand puzzles this month, so I didn't think one could cause that big of a jump. I looked at my recent puzzles, and I had one listed as 8307 seconds!! The weird thing is, it was in the middle of a puzzle sessions where I was doing them at a normal rate. I didn't take a nap or a phone call or anything, so how could this have happened?

It's not a big deal. I have bigger priorities in life, but it is strange and a little bit upsetting. I was getting to be very proud of my average time.

Occasionally, the site will give you a "double-load." It loads two puzzles at the same time. Check your recent games played while playing to help make sure you didn't miss a double load.
