Default Updated Records

Hello fellow puzzlers,

I've set a few records on puzzles that I am fairly certain that I have played again. The second time the puzzle comes up and I play it, however, it still shows the old record and record holder.

Has anyone else been able to confirm that their records are being recorded?

There are several puzzles that I've repeatedly solved in record-breaking time, yet the old record is still listed. I suspect that record times are only for the first time we're given a puzzle, that if we solve it faster on subsequent tries that doesn't count as an official record. This would make sense, as having heard a quote before can make solving faster.

I'm not sure though, and it would be nice to get official confirmation.

That would make sense to only allow a record the first time you do it.

But, take this for example:

I solved this puzzle in 14 seconds, apparently setting a new record:



The puzzle came up again, but still shows the exact stats and previous record:

And here is another example:




After it came up again, it still shows the old one.




This is really disappointing since it probably means none of the records are accurate.
