Leaderboard Changes Explained

04 August 2020

As you may have notice, we have updated the website... it's been a long time coming!

When I originally built the site web visitor number were quite low, I wanted to build a site that could be used by the huge crossword community out there and that allowed them to contribute.

I didn't want anyone to feel put off by having to fill out long forms and register etc... so I purposely left out that functionality.

Since then I have been receiving emails almost daily about improvements people want included on the site - and one was being able to build your own profile.

Unfortunately since we have no unique data to identify contributors - just name and country, we are unable to carry the scores forwards as contributors will need to register which starts them at zero.

I'd like to take this opportunity to thank everyone that has contributed to where the website is today... your contributions have amazed us.

Below (or right - depending on your device) you can see a list of our top contributors - their contributions are still listed in the new website and will continue to help thousands of other crossword enthusiasts... There are also some 14,000 or more anonymous contributions so thank you to all of those.
