"You are the nth person to solve this problem"

Post by dkallen78 » Wed May 08, 2019 11:02 pm

Is there a way I can see this number? Is it stored? I know it's shown right after completing a problem but is there a way to access it after the fact? I searched for an answer but couldn't find one. Sorry if this has been asked before!

Sadly there is no way for you to access this information after you have solved the problem. Due to the way that the "solved" data is stored in each member's profile it is a fairly intensive process; the data is compressed in such a way that is optimised for members to access their own data, not perform, "who has solved problem X and when did they solve it". In fact, the main reason for the delay you see when you solve the problem is the server calculating this position.

Thanks for the reply. I was hoping to see what number I was for previous problems (not interested in other peoples' ranks). I figured since there was an award for being one of the first solvers the information must be stored somewhere.
