Thanks and a small suggestion
Aha! The top scorers list is back. Excellent  thank you!
Suggestion for a short entry in the FAQ: "Why is it called Project Euler?"
The answer could include a wikipedia link.

Re: Thanks and a small suggestion
The "Top scorers" feature works great, unfortunately it is spelled wrong (it is shown as "Top scoreres").

Re: Thanks and a small suggestion
Of course. It should be spelled as topsorcerers

Re: Thanks and a small suggestion
I think the displayed time is wrong on projecteuler.net
For example in Hungary the current time zone offset is UTC/GMT+2 hours.
For this now it says 6.45pm, but the correct time is 5.45pm.

Re: Thanks and a small suggestion
For the Netherlands the time is correct now.
edit: What about some sort of "All Time Top 100 Scorers" list, updated once every week. That'd be cool
Of course Robert will be leading that one also, but still

Re: Thanks and a small suggestion
I'm thinking of a list, where every user gets a point, when he reaches 100%. To get every possible point, one has of course to solve all problems and to solve every new problem before the next problem is published.henk263 wrote:edit: What about some sort of "All Time Top 100 Scorers" list, updated once every week.

What sort of list do you mean?

Re: Thanks and a small suggestion
Duh! Sorry about that, but I see a slightly different menu. Anyway, all fixed, and thanks for pointing it out.

Re: Thanks and a small suggestion
I'd support "Top Sorcerers"
Re: Thanks and a small suggestion
Something along those lines, but I'd also give points to the first 5 (?) to solve a new problem. That way everyone can score pointsGeorg wrote:I'm thinking of a list, where every user gets a point, when he reaches 100%.

Re: Thanks and a small suggestion
What about a cross to show problems you haven't solved yet in your profile?
I think there had been such a sign until the server problems occured.

Re: Thanks and a small suggestion
I'm quite happy to put the cross in if that's what members want, but I think I removed it previously because it could look quite depressing when you first start out. A cross seems to give the impression that it's wrong rather than you just haven't answered it yet.
What do others think?

Re: Thanks and a small suggestion
You could think about some other sign. E.g. a blue circle with a white inner area or something. Just something that's suggesting it is still open.

Re: Thanks and a small suggestion
It would be more in one style then to have the ticks green again. Not that I care much, I find the empty boxes easy enough to locate, but having a green and a blue or red icon would, well add colour

Re: Thanks and a small suggestion
I found the tick / cross page challenging rather that depressing when I was working my way up. But I can see how others might take it differently.euler wrote:I'm quite happy to put the cross in if that's what members want, but I think I removed it previously because it could look quite depressing when you first start out.

Some symbol other than cross would work. A circle, as hk suggested, or perhaps a question mark.
I don't know if the database has information enough for this, but how about:
 A green tick for solved
 A blue circle or question mark for not yet attempted
 A red cross for having submitted an incorrect answer
Re: Thanks and a small suggestion
That would be interesting. Not sure how many blue circles I would have. Better yet, have a red count of incorrect submissions. (The field might not be wide enough for this though !!)thumbo wrote:

Re: Thanks and a small suggestion
As far as I know, incorrect submissions aren't entered into the database.

I kept track of the first X people to hit 100% every week. This is the result after 13 weeks, do with it whatever you wantstijn263 wrote:edit: What about some sort of "All Time Top 100 Scorers" list, updated once every week. That'd be cool
