hi. can someone explain to me how these are scored? why is it that every time i solve a puzzle with a low success rate in an above average time, i receive less points than i get for worse performances on easier puzzles?

Default Here's what worked for me:

do a search for "scoring question"---there's a thread with that title, and your answers are in those posts from some experienced members---it should clear things right up for you!

Ummm....this feels like a dumb question, but which iphone app is yours exactly? I can't find a crypto game with 'puzzle baron' as a designer. I've been muddling along with just the crypto in the paper until this morning, when I decided I had to have more & found this site. Now I want them everywhere!
thanks,
ecanarensis

Hi. I can't answer your question, but Admin probably will. However, if you don't get a reply from him, at the bottom of every "page" here there is a way to submit questions and comments directly to him. I promise you that you will get an answer.
Hope you're having fun playing.

I don't think it is the success rate that determines the score. It is the difficulty rating and the time that makes the difference.

Default Error and cannot complete puzle!

I am unable to complete a puzzle due to an error.

http://cryptograms.org/retry2.php?ti=43674281 If you can access my account.

Basically it the solution is "The Bluebird carries the sun on his back" however, the code has 'L' represnting the 'u' of sun and also the 'k' of back.

As 'L' is representing two letters, I cannot solve the puzzle.

Default Error in Puzzle

I cannot solve a puzzle due to an error.

The puzle has 'L' repesenting two letters. It represents 'u' and 'k' in a puzzle to which the solution should be "The Bluebird carries the sun on his back."

If you can access my account. Please fix this as I would like to maintain my 100% solve rate.

Hi, Bob --

The error lies in your solution, not in the puzzle.

You did not solve correctly. That's not quite what Thoreau wrote.

Go back and try again. Good luck!
