I have noticed that pushing the button "animate solution", before any attempt to solve, solves the problem for the user and decreases the rating accordingly.
To have a fair rating it would be better to have the problem be marked as unsolved in this event.
The same applies for the "navigate solution" button.

To sum up, I suggest that when an unsolved problem is asked by a user to "animate solution" or "navigete solution", it becomes counted as unsolved for the user and its rating is increased as it must be.

My thoughts exactly!
The alternative is to have these controls deactivated (grayed out) until the solver has committed either right or wrong answer.

Just out of curiosity, Adum. Is anyone working (=maintaining, modifying) the applet currently? When was the last change?
Is there any realistic hope to have f.ex. the " 10 last comments" feature implemented?

Do not get me wrong. This is a great site - but it could be even better! Rolling Eyes

this would indeed be a key fix. i'll try to take a look.

the development on the site and applet is sporadic -- i don't have a definite timetable, but will get to things for sure in the future.

thanks,
adum
