    Default Do the Arcade scores get reset?

    As the subject title really!

    Do they get reset or revert back to something older on a regular basis?

    I'm a bit of an Mahjong addict but have noticed that my score regularly goes back to an older one.

    ... not that I'm in it for the numbers but ...

    I don't use the Arcade myself, and I'm not very familiar with the Arcade admin stuff, but as far as I can see only a user's highest score is saved.

    That's right Bill but I've noticed that my score regularly goes back to a lower one??

    I've just posted a score of 2106 for 3rd place, we'll see how long it stays there for.

    Actually there is something a little odd ...

    If you look at the Mahjong highest scores on the main Arcade page it says "Orchards Finest with a score of 2,316" yet if you click the [View High Scores] link it shows Orchards Finests No.1 score as 2276.

    Hmm, I can't explain that, I'm afraid. I've been through the Arcade admin settings, and as far as I can see all is as it should be.

    See Studleyone's post in 2008 ... when the same question was asked:

    The arcade does this so that the place remains competitive, allowing the beginners a shot at the title. Just play it again to get an even higher score.
