Is there a way to keep EXP points accruing after midnight? My points zero out and I noticed that others continue to accrue. I see the green arrows! It would be awesome to see everyone zero out!

- mog86uk February 19, 2016 at 3:54amYou're talking about at Japan midnight, when at that time the scores for the day are tallied and are reset for everyone on the site, right?
You can accrue EXP no matter what time of day it is; there's no time of day where users are blocked from earning EXP. Are you instead referring to how some users' scores for the day are not visually reset immediately? I think this happens if the user had earned EXP before midnight and stays connected to the site when it goes past midnight. In this case their EXP won't reset until the moment they answer their first question of the day, uness they disconnect from the site and reenter (or maybe even needs to completely log out in this case).
It would be nicer if everyone's scores in the Online Users list were zeroed-out visually immediately on Japan midnight though. ^^

- mog86uk February 19, 2016 at 5:59amThe user's actual daily score is still reset to zero anyway, it's just that the "Online Users" list doesn't reflect this. It's not as though anyone's daily score is being carried across from the previous day, nor are people managing to add to their previous day's score. On the actual "Rankings" page there are never any green arrows for anyone when it is dead-on Japan midnight—every single user's daily score is reset immediately.
I think the wording in your first post sounded like you were saying users are accruing EXP without their score resetting from the previous day (with their new EXP being added to the previous day's score). Just wanted to make things more clear for anyone reading. So your suggestion is simply that the "Online Users" list should completely update/refresh at midnight, to ensure no previous day scores are still visible, I think.
