challenges page not updating

Challenges page slow to update? Challenges that I’ve completed show ‘cleared’ but still say that 0 people have solved the challenge.

This is because the challenges page is only updated periodically (right now, once per day). Therefore, if you come back a day later, you should see the correct data. We may make this page update more quickly as we test server load data.

Hi mummiebrain,

Yes, the challenges does not update immediately when you clear a puzzle. In fact, it updates once a day.

(But “cleared flags” gets update everytime so don’t worry!)

This is because computing the whole challenges page is computationally expensive on the server side. Once we start getting a better server, we’ll increase the frequency of page updates.

The same rule applies for other pages as well. News and lab pages update every 5 minutes. Players page update every minute.
