Love watching the speed demons rack WRs in under 20 sec. How 'bout a special bonus? Best on first WR attempted, disqualify those over 120 sec - throw a bone to dial-ups, old 'puters, AOLers, & just plain old folks

I always thought we should get bonus points on WR for every answer we get right. That way, you can play all day for points and never worry about being in the top 10. Its an extra incentive for people to either go gold or platinum because the higher your membership, the more times you get to play.

WP have been mostly evened out by everyone having the same opportunity for points. I agree that it would be fun to get an extra 10 points for every correct answer we get, like we get when we take quizzes. Of course this would have to be in addition to the 500 participation points you get because if they took that away, you would have to do 50 WR an hour at 100% to come up with those points. That would be exhausting.

Maybe it's because I'm tired, but I don't get it. What do you mean "Best on first WR......"
I'm not following.

What I mean by 'best' is same as now - most correct, fastest - but only applied to each player's first attempt for that hour. Accuracy is just weighted a little extra for the first round. Am only talking about an added way to get a bonus, not changing the current process.

I am asking seriously. Keep the WRs scoring as is, to rewrd Platinum & Gold with the top 10 big points. Add a "First-Shot Spot" winner & give maybe 500 bonus. Platinums & Golds still have the best chance at it, with all their practice, but it could be an interesting 'piece of pie' to go for.

I would like to be able to get some extra points on WR's . At the moment due to slow dial up annd being partially sighted I am doing well to get under 120 sseconds but I do have rounds in a day where I go in and get 100% first shot.
Mainly I just play to beat my own best speeds.

Just lately my eyes have been extra blurred and the dial up slower and my WR speeds have been in 150 - 180 range and sometimes more - then right in the middle of all that I got a 84. something and I nearly died of shock lol
Best thing was though it was on my birthday

I have webtv instead of a computer and I am always over 120 seconds for the word rounds. I am thrilled to get my 100%. I would be at a severe disadvantage if my scores got bounced.

Am suggesting the main scoring does not change - no one loses. Just threw out 120 sec as an example - pick 5 minutes or something just not long enough to look-up answers...

I know that the powers that be tried to give us poor dial-up folks a better chance to win WR'S but even though I can now sometimes get in the low 30's the faster folks have only gotten faster. When I think of 12,15,18 sec. I haven't got a chance in bleep of even getting into the top 10. In the wee hours of the morning I have by chance made #10. I wish there was a way for us to get a 1000 points for every 100% we get. If I remember correctly thats the way it was when WR'S was introduced. Just my thoughts on the matter.

I actually get my best times on a dial-up now, thanks to a mouse with a finger wheel and reading glasses, so I don't think connection speed there is a big slowdown. The vision and scrolling parts can be the killer. That and the wrong words brought up.

How about getting 100 points for ANY 100% round. If all 10 of gold members' rounds (or an infinite number of platinums'), there would be the potential of 1000 points (more for plats) per 1 hour round. The timed portion of the scorting could still stay the same.

That would give an incentive for those with slower computers (or fingers or minds) to do WR's.
