I completed the puzzle and the message came up to say I'd completed it but no time appeared and it was marked as not completed in the chart rankings

That means you lost your internet connection. After a few seconds the contacting server message is added to with a message telling you it is still waiting for the server, and it gives you the option to retry once you have reconnected.

Thanks for explaining. Perhaps I should have waited longer before closing the puzzle

Here's exactly what happens when you press 'Check' and the puzzle is correct:

* Immediately, the player attempts to open a web page on the server to get your finish time. This will also save your time in the process.

* While it waits for it to load, it displays "[Updating server and fetching time]". Once it loads, it shows your time. Done.

* If it doesn't load within 4 seconds, it adds "(Still waiting)" in bright red to the message above.

* If it still hasn't loaded within another 4 seconds (8 seconds in total), it changes the entire message to "Sorry - time not saved: timed out waiting for server" and adds a bright red, bold "Retry" link

* If you click 'Retry', it starts the whole process again as if you'd just pressed 'Check' (storing the new finish time at this point, if successful)

* If it fails again, you can repeat the process as many times as you like - but I would recommend opening a new window to check you can actually connect to the site still, and perhaps forcing a page to reload just to be sure (but not the player page - that will lose your time), and then once you know you are back online you can try again

If the time doesn't display it almost certainly means you are offline (not connected to the internet). The site is very rarely unavailable, although of course it does extremely occasionally happen from time to time.

A dedicated service checks the site every single minute from locations all around the world, and if it takes more than 2 seconds to respond at any point it alerts me. The last time this happened was a few months ago.

Key

  • A yellow/light blue highlight in the time distribution charts highlights your time, where relevant.
  • Rating scores out of 10.0 show the average difficulty rating chosen by users, where 1.0 is "Easy" and 10.0 is "Hard".
  • If a puzzle is opened more than once, including by loading from a saved position, then this is potentially a significant aid so it is listed as being completed with 'multiple sessions' for the purpose of the best time/average rating displays above.
  • Minor aid is defined as no more than one use of 'Check solution' when incomplete and/or no more than one use of 'Check solution' when wrong; and/or using highlighting aids (show repeated digits, show broken inequalities and show valid/invalid placements [slitherlink] only). Major aid is any and all other use of the solving aids except for 'show wrong'.
