Default success rate question

its me with ANOTHER question...
if i don't sove the puzzle right away, but go back and "retry" and solve it, does that count as a solved puzzle or no? im just wondering because my success rate is plummeting, so im trying to go back and solve the puzzle, but now im not sure how it counts or if it counts at all.

Arrow Time and tide wait for no one

If you select "retry" from "recent games" and solve a puzzle you skipped over, that puzzle will not count against you in your solution rate. You can go back to any puzzle you left uncompleted in the past two hours, provided that you have remained logged in. However, the clock does not stop ticking. If you skipped over the puzzle one hour ago, your solution time for that puzzle will now be over one hour.

thanks bansai. so it doesnt affect my success rate but it would make quite an impact on my solve time right? just out of curiosity, which do you suggest? would you just let the puzzle go or would you go back and solve it and screw up your solve time?

Red face Bwah-hah-hah!?! Are you kidding me?!?

I couldn't give a rat's patootie about whether I have a 100% success rate I go for the low times. Does that make me abnormal ?

Unhappy And once again

The mystery of the loading of puzzles rears its ugly head.

Happening to a number of people on this site.
