I've switched to Firefox and haven't had issues in a while - I had 4 trivia questions to answer I got all 4 - and the last 3 registered although the timer kept running to almost out - the little bar at the bottom was going showing me that it had been "registered" - but on the first question it timed out - I had the answer right - I sent in a support ticket since the screen told me I ran out of time - but wondering if anyone else is having this issue - I wonder if an editor can answer if it shows what answer was sent by a player when a support ticket is sent in - I tried to take a screen shot to "show it" and just as I hit the print screen key - it flipped over...

Kaelin, I have bothg Firefox and IE. When I get my daily question in my mail it opens in Firefox where I have found the timer often runs out. If I open the site on IE don't seem to have that problem. In using either though still have the problem of giving an incorrect answer LoL Linda

It appears that timer problems occur during the last 10 seconds remaining.
While the bar is moving down, if you enter the answer within a few seconds of the end, the lag in your computer's link to the server might account for the timeout.
It has happened to me in the past.
The faster you enter an answer, the less chance of a problem.

That's how it was for me before - today I was at 20 left - they sent me a replacement question which I had to think about and it was down to 10 - and registered correctly - just seems to be sporadic

I've been getting screwed with timers when I answer Showdowns. They say I answered right but I was too slow, this happened
about five times. Once, I answered instantly and it said I was over 10 seconds. My computer is super fast, I don't think the Sploofus Timex is a tickin'. BTW I think a player should get at least 25% of the wager in a showdown, if they are right and lose because of time.

I've noticed a steady slow-down of the timer over the last week or so. This morning it ran out on me but since I got the question wrong anyway, I didn't send in a ticket.
