How about "Overall Achievement" or "Best All-Around" ??

How about super solvers? That would not alienate those of us who have had to sacrifice speed to achieve a higher solve rate. I gave up trying for speed because I knew I could not compete in that category. I really admire those of you who can solve at 100% and still have a really fast rate of solving.

Thumbs up Lateral Thinking

I wanna a start a new ranking category for something no one seems to have thought about before. There is a new unsung hero on this site named "layla," who has overtaken everyone in the category of "Avg pts."

http://www.cryptograms.org/forum/image.php?u=70

Are there any cryptedians or cryptediennes who can say that they surpass this Avg pts score? At the time of this posting, 312.1 will be a very hard score to beat. My hat is off to layla.

(Hey, why have I been unable to upload these images? I hope everyone is able to just click on them)

Default name of the game

I like that "SUPER SOLVERS" name for the new category.......makes the point without sounding "elitist"

Ban, is it possible that Layla ONLY solves the hardest ones???

A random thought I had: Does the software (or could it be persuaded to) keep statistics on how many record times each solver has? That would make an interesting bar graph (with bansai's bar much taller than anybody else's, one would think).


Ratio of record times to total puzzles attempted would also be a cool statistic.

Default End of Month (February) congrats to the Kat

Hello, Kat --

fyi... I always keep a semi-obsessive focus on scores and rankings -- eyes on the prize (mostly to see how far short I have fallen this month).

It does not escape my notice that of the TOP FIVE solvers in February's "Fastest Solver Competition"... you have the only 100 percent solve rate there. In fact, none of the other four even come close to 100 percent.

That's awesome... like totally. Kudos and hats off to the queen!

Andrea

its being so long that they were talking about the Super solvers that original crypto solvers(the Egyptians) called and said that they were complaining because they were hoping to qualify for the catergory
