I've noticed some odd behavior for the leaderboard of a set.

Usually, for a set of problems, you solve the problems "inside" the set - you click on the set, then you click on the problem you want to solve.

But you can also solve problems "outside" the set, i.e. you can get to a problem inside the set without clicking on the set. (Either the problem was already posted, or a problem inside the set gets reshared.)

What I've noticed is that if even you solve all the problems in a set, if you solve your last problem "outside" the set, then you don't get on the leaderboard. I feel like how you solve the problems of a set should not impact whether you make the leaderboard or not.

Yeah, the whole thing is really funky.

There's one more problem. The leader-board should change when the set changes. For eg., some people had solved my set when it had only one problem. But now it has 100 problems. The person is still on the LB, this kinda sucks..

Yeah, I completely agree!

I just now noticed that. I solved the "Bulging Box" problem, as shared by Endow, thus completing his set of problems, but the leaderboard remains dead. I have no idea who else has completed the set.

If you solve a problem that is in a set and after that you get to know that is in that set to get on the leaderboard you just need to click on the set and solve another problem from it.

Now brilliant has been deleted the leaderboards from all of the sets.

I agree, though is it possible that you just didn't click update my score?

Yeah that is possible.
