Default Scoring Error?

I completed a puzzle on the Presidents, but when I was done, it said I had only found 10 of 15, and gave me a below average rating. It even said I had time remaining.

Thanks for reporting this. I've not yet found the source of this bug but I have a hunch it has to do with periods being in search terms - will be working on it today.

Just an update - I believe we've found the source of the problem, and have removed ~109 puzzle boards from the word search library which were probably affected by this bug.

If it happens again however, please let us know straight away. (And letting us know the category, and number of words, etc. is very helpful!)

Cheers, and happy solving!

Unhappy scoring error

I experienced this problem 2 days ago, while I was working on a word search titled: Worms.
I had just pressed start on the word search, & then the puzzle glitched & said that I was out of time, when I had just started!!!
As a result; the system gave me a Below Average rating & I received 0 points for that word search.
Can someone PLEASE fix the problem?!
