Indeed, it was the longest by far so far. The challenge was posted at 9pm, PST time. I started about 9:30pm. I went to bed around midnight. Still worth it :)

Timezones really matter if you're trying to get a good score (which is one reason why I'm not trying). I really feel for the Europeans who want to compete.

Yeah, it's possible for me to change the leaderboard to order based on number of stars. It still breaks ties based on who got the most recent star sooner, but it would be a little bit less demoralizing. Does that seem like a good idea?

Also, while it may seem that it's mighty convenient that I decide to make the leaderboard more forgiving on the first day that I miss a 9PM start, that honestly wasn't why I'm thinking about this. It just seems like more fun if there's not a difference of 400 points between 1st place and last place. :)

I totally support this -- keeps the staying up to 1 AM pressure low.
