Fun but simple test. I made my typical boneheaded answer entry mistake (not counting a 90 degree turn in the zigzag that was made out of diagonal lines) but will simply imagine the score I might have had. Thanks Rohan and Tejal.


I am happy that world Champs mind and my mind work in the same manner.............He also did the same mistake as I did in the Zig-zag... LOL

Only 9 participants have rated the puzzles (out of 75 non zero scores)
Should we have some bonus points for rating puzzles also ?

it will be too harsh I guess ...
but we can think about not displaying the detailed scores if someone has not rated the puzzles :-)
OR
Not displaying scores which are higher than that player :-)
OR
encrypting all others players' user ids :-)

Anyway, I think its okay, if players don't rate. We should not force them.

Thank You: Nikola, Rakesh, Semax, Dave, Amit, Thomas, Jason and all participants.

Congrats to Hideaki, Ulrich and Takei!

I'm glad most of you'll enjoyed the test. The test could've been a little shorter (maybe 75-80 minutes as suggested by Deb). The low participation was expected due to other contests.

Apologies for the multiple-solutions Zigzag and the incomplete-instructions Tapa.

See you all at Evergreen 2!

Rohan.

Thanks Rohan/Tejal for this great test. I enjoyed solving all these puzzles. Nice to see more and more people creating puzzles. LMI provides right environment for showcasing not only your puzzles solving talent but also your puzzle creation talent. Three cheers to LMI! Looking forward for more such puzzle tests.

Thanks a lot! I truly agree with you and I'm sure there will be better and more exciting contests by Indians (other than you, Amit, Deb, Rakesh, the regulars...) in future :-)

At LMI online we try to design the test timings in such a way that an average solver is able to solve all (or most of the) puzzles in the test and thereby we expect some of the top solvers to get a time bonus.
Even at offline competitions it is difficult to estimate the correct time for a test given the rate at which sudoku solve timings have reduced over the past couple of years.

It was nice to see a discussion on the loss of bonus points due to small oversights.
In offline competitions we can do away with bonus points by introducing bonus puzzles like we have had in the Indian Sudoku Championships in the past and the WSC in Goa.
However since this is not possible for online competitions we have to devise a way in which participants do not loose a large number of bonus points due to silly submission mistakes.
Both Ziti and motris had similar ideas off giving weighted bonus points depending on the number of puzzles solved incorrectly and the number of puzzle points solved incorrectly.

The puzzle points are always related to the time taken to solve the puzzle, so we will compute the percentage of test completed as the percentage of puzzle points solved. The weights will be based on Ziti's approach and hence all participants solving more then 50 % of the test can expect some bonus points for time saved in the test.
