After an exhausting investigative effort, we have gotten to what we think is the bottom of the scoring issues that everyone has been complaining about today. It appears that a number of individuals have taken it upon themselves to a play a little practical joke on the rest of the site by signing up for numerous accounts and voting low on every challenge image. While DPChallenge enjoys a good joke every once and a while, we feel that what has taken place today has gone beyond the realm of joking humor. We are currently deciding on how to proceed in handling the situation. The individuals responsible will be punished appropriately.. Actually, you can ignore all that, I think this might have been the problem all along:

if(date('Y-m-d') == '2004-04-01')
leftbox_my_stats_april();
else
leftbox_my_stats();

April Fools! =P Enjoy your improved scores tomorrow.

They didn't have to, for the open challenge, but as to how the "multiple account" scenario would explain the crap happening in the Members' challenges, I don't have a clue.

You need to read all the way to the geeky humor at the bottom. Basically they coded it so the scores were wacked for today and had nothing to do with multiple accounts.

So when is the "if(name('user') == 'Trinch') leftbox_my_stats_ALL_10s(); else leftbox_my_stats();" change going to be implemented?

You might want to reread Langdon's post... the change was actually due to a hack to the formula that generates the score box.

That formula is already in place. It runs the 2nd Tuesday of every week.

Actually, after seing everyone get slammed, I found myself voting higher than I normally do out of sympathy.

Well, either that or the entries for March Free Study were all on a higher level.
