I've just been made to cry by this maddening time out problem in WM/WR. I know it's foolish to allow myself to be upset, but I have a low tolerance for frustration and this is far beyond annoying and well gone into bloody infuriating.

I just tried to complete the word puzzle on pets and the system has gone crazy. After making a guess it took me back to the previous puzzle. After a couple of guesses I was on puzzle one instead of number four.

In the past 2 hours I've lost 7 WR tries and 2 WMs. The new paradigm is, if you want 10 tries you have to go platinum.

When I get an expired WR or Wm & try to refresh it takes me to the next puzzle & then expires that one too. I have to keep closing & coming back into the site. I've been averaging 3 expired rounds per hour. It keeps kicking me out of quizs as well.

I've just lost 4 WRs and the entire WM round.

Screw it.

Web 2 is not keeping up with Web 1 and Web 3 on the Word Rounds. At one point they were all showing a different point in the shout.

This particular round this morning has been really, really bad. A good round hasn't went through in almost 20 minutes for me.

Well, that's kind of all right with us, but the rest of us want ours fixed.

Oldcougar: Don't refresh. Go to the WordRounds home page and refresh there, or hit the WordRounds button on top. Look carefully at the shout and your times (or lacks thereof) below. If they are up-to-date, with even your last attempt shown as existing, the odds are better for you to try again. If they're not, wait a moment, then check again.

We may not like the situation, but it won't hurt if we can minimize the inconvenience it causes.

Now, I am even afraid to try the word puzzle. Usually I can play the word round just fine UNTIL the last 15 minutes or so of the hour. Today, (3/27/07) it is happening randomly all the time. Extremely frustrating.

There have been times when I've had to walk away from the screen and count to ten...

Generally seems to happen when I've just gone 8 or 9 seconds faster than Rach on the WR, no-one but me has got 100% on the WM and Justin has awarded the top 5 players amalgamated points to me for writing the best quiz ever written.

Then my wife shakes me awake and tells me to stop giggling in my sleep.

Even when I play in this dimension it's beginning to chip and crack my Zen-like state of mind.

If I could give a forum post an Editor's Award, that just might be it.

And I for one would click on the rating that says "Deserved the Editor's Award"!!!

Yes, the only thing that this post was missing was the "flung poo" of Ducttape's "wlatsome WR" post!

"Flung poo..." Is that that oriental philosophy of arrranging the furniture and adorning your home harmoniously?

Either that, or it's what you get when you cross Reverend Spooner with David Carradine.

At 7 pm, Webs 1 and 2 changed to the new WR 19395, but Web 3 was still showing round 19394 with a negative time up until -4 minutes when it finally caught up.

Both WP's today said I took them already, the first one after I had solved them all. The one tonight won't let me in at all.

Same for me. Tried to do tonight's word puzzle and it said I had already taken it- NOT!!

My Wp from earlier did register when results came out. I just tried tonights again and it came up now.

ok- pay attention- this is realllllly weird. As I posted earlier, when I initially tried to do the WP title "served by the slice" it kept giving me the message that I had already played it- when I hadn't. After that post I returned to the WP and tried again. This time it let me in but- The title says "served by the slice" but the clues were "colorful films"- from the previous WP. The 1st, 2nd, and 5th puzzles were from the colorful film WP I had taken earlier. The other 2 were also colorful films but not ones from the one I had taken. I have no idea where the puzzles for "served by the slice" went- eaten by cyberspace?????

I'll give you another stupid glitch. I got two messages this morning about showdown results. Both of them with the same time. One said I one the showdown, the other said I lost. The points were removed so I must have lost. If that is the case, WHY did I also get the message with the same time stamp saying I won the showdown? Yes, I did report it.

Lost 3 tries on each side of WR/M this hour. Any chance these are being saved up somewhere and I'll be able to use them later?
