I think there's a glitch. The scoring box says my high score is 538/538, but the box beneath the caveats says it's 238/538 (my correct high score is 238/538). Anyone else having this problem?

Did you ever take it untimed and get 538? I have, and it shows the same for me, even though my high score is 369.

When the Quizmaster updates a featured quiz, then he has the option to make the stats reset, usually he avoids it if possible, though.
+2
Level 75
Mar 27, 2021
The thing is that if the stats weren't reset, then it'd be unfair to the people who took it before the reset (you could always just screenshot your stats though; I'm sure you could easily regain the five points if you're concerned about that)
