    I was rolling right along when, with 4:04 left to go, it abruptly ended and showed the remaining answers.

    Fudge! It happened again with 6:06 left. I’m on a Mac and using Safari 4.

    Hey there Mashplum, will send this info the the programmer.


    Thanks for the feedback

    A time limit for non native English speakers can be somewhat straining.


    Furthermore, do the answers need to be revealed when the time is up?


    I get interrupted a lot only to find out upon my return that the quiz is spoiled.

    Hey there Hex,
    suspect most will want to see the answers when time is up,


    but you’re right, having a time limit for non-English speaking folks may not be best; let me think about this some

    I doubt that non-English speaking folks will ever be interested in any English quizzes :D


    On a more serious note, compare the short time limit quizzes to the puzzles where answers are revealed only after a few days. The latter are more challenging.

    Hex- maybe one day I can surprise you with a Lebanese quiz :)


    Mashplum- the programming team has supposedly fixed many of the bugs within past 12 hrs, thanks.
