as you may have noticed, the front page contains a list of the site's "top hackers." these points are earned by doing well in the various puzzles. if you're top in a particular puzzle, you'll be awarded 100 points, and it goes down from there. (you can get some points even if you're not in the top 10.)

the points are recalculated hourly.

this system will likely be improved/amended in the future. suggestions welcome.

I think, you should give Points not by the place in the toplist but by the level reached.
If someone finds an algorhytm that solves a NP-Problem and is way ahead other competitors, it is maybe a good idea to give him more than 100 Points (or less to the other).

These are some good challenges. I look forward to competing with you after I complete some of the work I'm currently doing.

I found a "top hacker" who actually solved only 4 levels of RR and nothing more *lol*
