LONDON - The race continues! Let's take a look at ranking in Sherlock Holmes Mahjong Mysteries Solving Contest after mystery #2.
The current ranking in the Sherlock Holmes Contest (updated 2017~02~20). Twenty three contestants have ranked after submitting solutions for mystery #2. Nine of them have full score.
Typical full score for the mystery is 2 SHP () plus 1 bonus SHP () for acting within 3-days after publication (please, note that bonus is scored regardless of the solution being correct or not). Typical partial score for the solution is 1 SHP (), there are no "halfs" or "fractons" of SHP. So, it is up to the author to decide how much each solution deserves when solution is not full. Whenever the contestant is on the right track but with a solution that is not perfect, the author will send e-mail / contact via social net asking for clarification or to recommend reconsideration of the solution. So, please, write correct addresses for you to be able to receive any feedback in time.
For mysteries with multiple questions or mysteries allowing different complexities of solutions, additional criteria of scoring may be set.
First criterion of ranking is based on total sum of acquired scores. The second criteria is "timestamp" to help determine rankings for ties.
