@evaristoc @jameswinegar I think the first pass part of my comment is being missed (just throwing out ideas). Whether you're using similarity or heuristics (though I'd agree the former would be more effective -but costly - (kind of like if you submit a paper it (or part of it) is part of 'the matrix of fraud detection')) you're evaluating against (first) a larger data set. I'm just saying that running these comparisons on 'red flag' (e.g., time of completion variable) first would be low hanging fruit. In @jameswinegar example 'already have the knowledge so, went very quickly on (x)' isn't unreasonable (for that example); however, just because it that would be higher in the queue order (based on whichever method) to evaluate doesn't detract from anything.

@qmikew1 I think I understand your point... I agree: taking the more evident things first would be like a good idea, absolutely agree...

Do we have a leaderboard somewhere? I’m starting to think that seeing who’s ahead of me and how far might motivate me a bit.

We don't want to scrape the webserver for comparatives because it will put a lot of stress on the system.

Yeah I’m going to have to work aways to get in the top 100 but that’s sort of motivating in itself.
