In the new rankings. the old 1 seconds would have to either be excluded or all assumed to be 1.99. If you excluded them, you would have a note on the page that said "the following people acheived 1 second times before the new system" for bragging right's sake.  Roll Eyes

True, but what about all the other scores in the database (i.e. not 1 second)? It would look funny and probably annoy all the people who upload times from older versions that they were suddenly getting an extra .99 on their times, but I can't think of any other 'fair' way. ???

Considering this, I think it's better to leave the online scores as they are - they seem to have worked pretty well so far anyway!

If others want to do it, new scores from an old version could have a note reminding people to upgrade.

But I'm not a one second acheiver, so it doesn't really matter that much to me anyway.

What do other people "assume" on a 1 1 1? I'm not sure how to train myself to do those.

@Luca, Roland, Kire: How long did you play beg to get 5x1s? Today I got 2,01; 2,04; 2,06 (Best three games). But no 1s. So, please tell me.

On 1-1-1 I usually do like that:skip one;reveal two;skip one again;reveal one and remain the last one marked(in my mind).Sometimes however I do it otherway,especially when they are two 1-1-1s.You start to "see" them correctly only by a lot of practice(if you're not some genius of course) and a big amount of luck also very often Wink
I'm glad that there are new pursuers of "The Holly 1".It seems that Stephan and maybe later Yariv and Gavin will join the club and filling up in this way Top 10 only with 1s Smiley
I havent played the last few days(I was skiing 8)) and still dont have opinion about the new update(but I think is coll Smiley), but I also think that is better to leave the online scores as they are  Grin

I've made my first 2 on 24.01. In the beginning of Feb I've started to pursue the 1 and after regular playing(with rests-this is very important) and around 10 hours total gameplay on beg I've made my first 1 on 19.02...
...half an hour I was "celebrating Smiley ",w/o closing the "precious" window and then I decided that I am wormed up and may make another 1 easy.I was very right-not more than 5-10 "F2" and-second 1. Since that day I play on beg only 5-10 min/day but the "1s" began to come easier and easier...
Happy sweeping  Wink

I cant believe you've made such times Gero  Sad
Very bad luck, my friend;
Just be cool and enjoy it.I'm sure you'll get many 1s soon Wink
I got 1.93, which I think is bad for this grid but...I wasnt concentrated enough

Gero,
The last day I played beginner I did 1x3 in an hour and half.
I think you only need some more practice, then the results will come..

Thank you, Kire, that you credit me with being able to do a 1, but I think I'm not the one who will join the "1 club". Yesterday, I played really a lot, but the fastest I could do was a 2.64

I have only 7 2's now. And the boards with no mine in the first row are extremely rare, unfortunately...

Luca, 1x3 in 1.5 hours is awesome, as well as 2.01, 2.03, 2.05 from you, Gero!

How low does your score need to be to get it in hundredths? Or maybe, how do you see your score in hundredths? ???

You need the latest version Wink (v1.31 onwards)
Then there is an option to "Show exact times."

After 1x2,00 and 4x2,01 i got my sixth 1s today. Grin
Next goal: Rank #1 in World Rankings. Luca, be careful... Wink

Does anybody know something about Roland? It seems he only plays the tournaments. ???

@Luca, Roland, Kire: How close are you to 0s?
My best 1s was 1,61s.

Btw, Gero, Jon and Kire.

I would like to know your fastest 1s.

Mine is 1.61, from this game.

I also have 1.81, 1.81, 1.84 and 1.92.

My fastest is 1.61, too.
The following are:
1.79x2, 1.89, 1.95x2, 1.96x2, 1.98

I cannot imagine that anybody will ever play 0s. I played custom boards, for example one with a 3x4 grid with 3 mines. So you have to open 9 squares as it is on beginner. My best was 0.89 or something like that. So it's on this really easy board "hard" to get 0s. So on beginner level it's nearly impossible. Not 100% so there is a little hope that someone will get 0s. But as I said, I cannot imagine that this will really happen. Undecided
I would really like to have one, but it's only a nice dream. Smiley

0.82 on your grid, Gero.  Wink And congrats on your 2nd place. The student overtook his teacher, eh? Darn. I don't know what my fastest 1s is, since I played them all before exact times.
