I had my question right in like 3 seconds and it timed out on me! That was gonna be fat points and an improvement in my average time. Instead, it killed me in the rankings and I lost my Music badge. Never mind I totally guessed it, point is I got it right and good stuff should've happened. I made a support ticket but since I still have one pending from weeks ago I figured it couldn't hurt to ask.

Please, I'll even take a new question.

That happened to me recently too, Smoke, and I lost wager points in the process.

Scared myself to death--I almost made the biggest wager I ever made. My head would've exploded.

Yep, it's annoying.
My max wagers now run at around 230 million, and it's a bit scary if a technical hitch can rob you of that! The hitches have hit me when, luckily, I had no wagers!
But I think Sploofus now knows of this and is looking at it.

That happened to me too last week...i haven't been placing wagers on TQOTD for awhile now because of it...

Perhaps we would encounter fewer problems if the TQOTD was sent to Sploofus Private Messenger. That might encourage people to visit the site more often, too.

My daughter Goddess28 said she got the time-out but also got the points and moved up a level. I wondered a bit when she told me but I don't think I did get scored; mine was a music question and it cost me the music badge and my QOTD rank dropped.

I'm feeling a little better about it after finally winning my 3M+ wager this morning

My wife, Hunnykins, has encountered this so many times, regardless of which browser is used, that she opted NOT to re-up her subscription. She previously had a Platinum account and now just plays for free. The only thing she can play daily is is TQOTD and a couple of WRs, and then she gets timed out even trying to do that and loses what points she can get.

Every quiz I have taken recently has frozen when I submit to rate the quiz, etc. I have problems every day with daily quiz. The site is acting wiggy this a.m., so I'm not even taking my quiz of the day. I'm really tiring of it too and may just abandon Sploofus, as much as I would hate to do it. It is really annoying. I may become a casual sploofuser - a freebie!

I'm far from ready to abandon SS Sploofus, but timeouts and freeze-ups do seem to be more frequent of late, and even more annoying than our other chronic bugbear, WP errors. If people are allowing memberships to lapse over it, that's really a shame. I know Justin is aware of the problem and working on it. I have faith it will be better soon.

I thought it was just my ancient computer. Sorry to hear it's happening to other people too,
but at least that means it's something that can be fixed! Hope it will be...
