Is it possible to see other player's solve sequences? I doubt I'll ever place top 20, but I'm sure I could improve my Tapa solving by studying the solve sequences of good players.

Yes, allow us some time.

Most enjoyable - thank-you for this! I made some comments on UKPA's forum before noticing this discussion.

To repeat:
- It's a pity we can't see a full leaderboard for each day's puzzles...
- ... also that there are no times shown.
- A final nice touch to the interface would be right-click and drag for multiple empty cells.
- Make competitive entry valid only on that specific day (or just last 7 days), then we can discuss puzzles after they have elapsed.

My suggestions for puzzle availability and leaderboards are based on those at http://www.kwontomloop.com/ which I think works very well.

There is a different link for standings : http://logicmastersindia.com/CTC/score.asp - You should see both the tables there.
(You can't see today's timing unless you have solved today's puzzle)

Agreed.
Have no idea how to do using flash.
You can use Shift + drag for multiple empty cells (like Nikoli)

Can you make it possible to log in with a different account somewhere on the CTC page. My girlfriend is visiting and we can't see where she can log in to do the puzzle.

I see we can rewatch our own solves. Will this be the case for other people's solves once the puzzle is over?

Others' Solve Sequences

You can now watch others players' solve sequences. It is available in the score page.

Please note : You can watch only if you have solved that particular day's puzzle OR if that particular day does not count towards contest points anymore (>72 hours).

It may not be how you expected it, but I'm particularly happy about bringing this to everyone. If you have other suggestions / feedback let us know.

This feature is awesome. But if there would have been like a 'pause' button then it would be even more useful as we could get more idea about the logic used by the solver.

It's hardly important, but the playback doesn't work entirely accurately. For example my playbacks of 11th Feb and 15th Feb are wrong - they leave unconnected regions.

This might be related to me using Chrome - when I click to 'unshade' a square it sometimes flickers on and off rapidly instead of clearing (I'm also unable to reliably mark off used clues - I think that often a single click is treated as multiple clicks).

Is it possible to filter results by Country like in usual LMI tests ?.
I know I am asking for something which involves effort again, if it involves more effort then do not do it, if it involves less effort then please do it.

Thanks in advance.

Ravi

How are standings computed? E.g., CoPo for daily rank? How are cumulative standings (ToPo?) calculated from daily results? Num days in CTC cumulative standings seems to have maxed out at 6.

I'm enjoying the contest in the basement :)

Thanks.

CoTi ( Competitor's time ) = Seconds Taken * Day Factor + 120 * Number of Wrong Submissions
CoPo ( Competitor's Points) is calculated from "average CoTi of top 10% of players", median of all CoTi for the day, and your own CoTi
ToPo (Total Points) is just sum of all CoPo's across all days.

I slowly begin to solve "nonsudoku" puzzles. I need time to get into each new stuff. It is well-known that Swiss people are slow.
With tapas, my goal is to be competitive in the year 2062.

Is there any chance we could get a pdf file with the puzzles published so far, updated once a week or or just the whole first month? That would be great for practicing on a bus etc.

I find that I can see today's timing at "Results by Players" view (though I haven't solved today's puzzle yet).
Is this an expected behavior?
