A great contest! Shame that I wrecked the solve.

I thought the gradual grading made the solve immensely less stressful and is generally a great thing to have. However, 90-70-40 penalty system may allow solvers to do thing like checking all possibilities for Spiral Galaxies without caring about the coloured regions. (I accidentally did this, mistakenly assuming that Spiral Galaxies was unique without influence from the other grids)

forcolin already pointed out that reloading resets the timer. When I also accidentally reloaded, I noticed the "Password for Puzzle Booklet" changed to 1351634143 (first answer key to Tripod Sudoku). It seems reloading while running the contest causes much trouble.

Edit - Muhorka pointed out that it's my mistake, I tried entering that solution in the Fillomino answer key :(
Can I still request to claim?
Thanks.

What a fun contest.
Brilliant idea for a big puzzle - but I do feel the answer keys and the instant grading format allows guess-and-check over solving logically.
A wrong assumption in Slitherlink ruined the last stretch for me and I couldn't finish in time.
I knew Yagit was my weakest puzzle going in, so it was not surprising that Yagit and the two bordering puzzles were ones I had left.
Thanks for the puzzle!
