and also

Dear participants!

We announce the last part of November results and the first part of results achieved in December. As usual you can view them on results page, but attentive crunchers can notice a new form of results (like R9_000114849, for example) - with one square in row. Square in this line is a square orthogonal to the square in previous column, that written above. This square (in line above) is orthogonal to more than one diagonal Latin squares simultaneously.

Participants that found new pairs of orthogonal diagonal Latin squares (ODLS) in November achieve a "Perelman proof anniversary badge", but for pairs, found in December and later we introduce a Rowan badge - a tree with delicious berries growing in the forests of Karelia and many other regions.
Our congratulations to:

[H]ard DCOTM x2

A bit late but in April, I found 20 pairs of orthogonal diagonal Latin squares.

Got my last rank 9 badge for month on Jun. That's a wild rose/rosehip flower.

It seems like there are less than 200 crunchers (158 to be exact of this moment) for rank 10. It used to be 200+. Some folks probably dropped off perhaps due to poor credits or ODLS pairs of rank 10 are really hard to find.
