Default Is it possible to show 'Top Ten' times for each puzzle

Would it be possible to start showing the top 10 times for each puzzle instead of only the fastest time? Maybe it would make me feel better than only seeing nanrich and bonsaisequoia - whom I'll never catch!

I'd be happy to see the top three!

I agree - the top three would be great! Although it would probably still be mostly Nanrich and Bansai.

I think it's a great idea too.

Default but...

we have a surprising number of crypto speed demons playing nowadays--we'd probably see the same names if even 10 names were listed...possibly even 20!
just check the 'records' each time you play; it's surprising how much things have changed over this past year.

Would it make you feel better if you saw Bansaisequoia and Nanrich each listed 5 times in varying orders for the top ten times of most quotes? -Doh!

Go to Chat, then scroll down below the Chat box. You'll see 3 tabs -- Forum, Records, and News. The default is Forum, but if you click on the Records tab, you can see the last 6 records set. This list is updated in real time, so if you check it daily, you get a sense of who the speed demons are around here.

Default you are right...

yes, it would likely be the same few people. What if they could show the top 10 (or 5) people? ordered by their top time? I know, slightly more complicated algorithm....
