    Dispute Evidence / Rationale
    Allow me to explain the situation here:
    While I have seen it possible to have the ones digit be higher than zero during game play (I believe it's for every time you roll the score perhaps?) when the game ends, the ones digit will ALWAYS be a zero.

    While it may have been possible for the player to have had a score of 1,034,401 during the game, when the game ended it would have been 1,034,400. Meaning that this score was entered incorrectly.

    My above link is for volume 18, but it appears that the score was first reported in volume 9:

    Voting yes. The source alone is enough for acceptance of this dispute, imho.
