I just posted this on a support ticket. Since I have months of unread support tickets enqueued, I thought I'd vent here as well.

It happens every once in a while. I'm taking a Trivia Quiz, a wonderful one, and I double-pump on the "Submit Answer" key. Maybe the mouse click registers twice, maybe as I pull off, it clicks again. Who knows? But you know what happens then: I get locked out of the rest of the quiz.

And this makes me mad.

Why? Because I lost my chance for a few tens of Sploofus points? No. Because I'll never show up on the quiz's leader board? Don't be silly.

It steams me because I'll NEVER be able to see the rest of this quiz author's labor of love, to challenge myself with the questions and answers, to learn a bit more, and to reward the author for their good work.

The current system where a double punch pops you out of the system with no way back is just plain WRONG!

Certainly, Sploofus has at its disposal a programmer talented enough to deal with the double-punch in another manner. Obviously, you've already got the hard part coded -- noticing the event and jumping to a routine to deal with it. Would it really be that hard to alter that deal-with-it routine, so that it just ignores the second answer (if different), and continues the quiz from the current point?

I agree about not wanting the more than one click thing. Sometimes it's just not our fault that we double click. It doesn't happen like this anymore, but used to when I would click submit, the page would time out sometimes. If I hit back on my browser and then tried to resubmit, it would lock me out of the quiz. I hated it.

I agree with you Kaufman. I have done this so many times and lost so many points, I could just kick my self for double-clicking.

I've done it many a time. I just hate that I can't finish a quiz that I have started and see the rest of it.

I agree...and for the same reason of wanting to finish the quiz and see what other questions the author has written. this happens to me mostly at work, I guess I'm trigger happy on the mouse, but never mean to click twice!!

Totally agree Kaufman.
I would like to be able to see my answers for past quizzes I have taken too Or possibly instead, to be able to retake them after a period of time.
