About 3 days ago I achieved the #1 position in the GU competition for
Chlamydomonas reinhardtii with 114 GU and 2 GC.
The challenge work page showed me as #1 but the index page square did not show me
in the top 3 at all immediately.
A few hours later the index page showed me as # 3.
My assumption was that the index took some time to update and what I was seeing there
was from a slightly earlier point when I was # 3 just before I found GU # 114 to reach #1.
Now,Three Days Later, The index page again does not show me in the top 3 and the
new Top 10 listing on the introduction page shows me as #10, with 9 other people ahead of me, all with my 114 GU solution!!
My assumption was that if I was the first to reach a new higher GU # that others who
found my solution later would always be listed below me and that I would remain #1
unless someone else found 115 GU or more. (unlikely in this case since we have just about run out of room.)
What’s Up? What did I do wrong, or what group/class/date don’t I belong to?
Why was my position usurped by later solvers?
