We made a change to the way the scores are ranked on the leader board. Today I pushed the change to the main site. The change is this: If you play a game multiple times and get the same score then only the first game will be shown.

Why did we make this change? We wanted to combat the technique of playing a game multiple times and getting the same score, but each time incrementally decreasing the time. This seems like gaming the system to us. Not only that but it pushes everyone off the high score list which can be annoying. So now only your first game of a particular score gets counted.

We’ve been calling this the “Kathy Problem” amongst ourselves as Kathy in particular seems to engage in this activity. Don’t worry Kathy, we still love you. 🙂

Think this is a good change? Hate it? Feel slighted because we singled you out and named a problem after you when you’re really not the only person to engage in this activity? Leave a comment and let us know how you feel.
