The answers page in my account (https://2017.cipherchallenge.org/my-account/answers/) does not contain any links to the certificates.

I’ve passed this on up – thanks for the screenshot. Hopefully we’ll get to the bottom of this!18 Oct 17 at 2:55 pm #31275AnonymousInactive
So it seems I’m back with yet another bug.
The percentage doesn’t actually show in some cases
Here is a screenshot

Thanks Aliman, we couldn’t see the screenshot bu we think we have diagnosed and fixed the problem. Let us know if not.
All the best,

sorry to keep bugging you guys (pun completely intended), but check this screenshot out via the imgur link. the built in picture thing on the forums seems to be a bit broken.
the line just keeps going on…
I submitted the text as a single string, as my program removes spaces and newlines

Thanks Aliman, the system tries to enforce wrapping so this might be a browser issue. Do you want to email us details of the system and browser you are using so we can look into it?

Yes, i have confirmed that this is indeed a browser issue. Opened it on my phone and it works fine. Might be an issue with some desktop browsers.

It looks like the challenge 2 leaderboard has disappeared. It was there when I checked yesterday but seems to have vanished after challenge 3 opened.20 Oct 17 at 2:50 pm #31526AnonymousInactive
@comet Yes the leaderboard has been taken down temporarily. There was a bug in the scoring system which is being fixed. The leaderboard will be up and running as soon as we get this worked out.21 Oct 17 at 7:06 pm #31590AnonymousInactive
@Joan Clarke Good to know. Looks like it’s back now, but the challenge 2 leaderboards appear to be exact copies of the Challenge 1A one (unless everyone placed the same by coincidence!)22 Oct 17 at 1:23 am #31622AnonymousInactive
@comet I have doubled checked and they are not the same as each other, or as challenge 1a. As far as I know all the problems with the leaderboards are now fixed.23 Oct 17 at 12:26 am #31653AnonymousInactive
I think that there is a buy with 3A as it is telling me that the word it is spelt wrong. but it follows the code and there is no other word that could be in its place25 Oct 17 at 4:00 pm #31720AnonymousInactive

Leaderboard for 3 doesn’t seem to be active yet?02 Nov 17 at 6:22 pm #31871AnonymousInactive
I am almost certain that I have an entirely correct decryption for 4A, however, when I submitted it I only got a score of 96.4%. I have checked, double checked and resubmitted it several times but I keep getting the same score. The loss of 4% on the score indicates that I have left out roughly 30-40 characters/got 30-40 characters wrong. I have checked by counting the letters on the ciphertext, and excluding punctuation, there are exactly the same amount of characters in my decryption as there are in the original ciphertext. However, there are 33 punctuation characters in the ciphertext, so I am wondering if a bug means that punctuation matters this week.
