SPLOOFQUAKE REDUCTION - PLEASE READ

Hello all,

I've just installed some new code for WordPuzzles, taking quizzes, and playing WordRounds and WordMatches. This code should significantly reduce the number of Sploofquakes (i.e. expired rounds, getting kicked out of puzzles, errors upon completing quizzes, etc.)

Please give it a day or two, and let me know if you notice any difference. I think that the new code may cause the site to be slightly slower, but what I am looking for is a reduction in quakes - and I can then work on getting things as fast as possible.

So - to recap - please report back here if you note any page load time changes or increase/reduction in Sploofquakes.

Many, many thanks!

Justin

Since there were no scores at all on WRs, I figured this would be a great time to get a #1 no matter how I did. Alas, I got WR Error 125 also.

I spent all the money in my hat account on E-Bay on M&M collectibles.

JUSTIN! Please fix this soon; I'm having withdrawals.

Now I gotta make more hats to sell

Arrrgghhh I apologize! I updated the scripts and then left for home, just logged on to see this. Should be fixed now.

Note:
I DID NOT APPLY THE UPDATE TO WORDMATCHES

So now we can compare the speed, performance, and number of quakes between WordRounds and WordMatches. This will be a good test to see if the new code in WordRounds reduces errors.

Thanks for your help!

Justin

Hmm: Just tried to take Allena's religion quiz...the page pops up informing me I've already taken the quiz.

Is this a glitch y'all need to know about, or does the new coding take previous lives into account?

Hey Justin, I've noticed a lot more mispunches for me -- as if you really need to nail the center of the circle now. Is there any reason with the slower system that he mousing detection would be more sensitive, or am I exhibiting early signs of brain damage or something?

The main thing I have noticed is my time om WR's and quizzes. It is very frustrating cause it is way TOO SLOW. Waaaah!

Hi Justin, it's the worst of all worlds....slow as molasses between screens and still quaking so I get kicked out in the middle of a quiz.
Sorry.

What!!! The quakes are part of the fun now! No kidding!!!

Dear Justin, I hope you are not spending too much time away from 2.0 to fix stuff on the current site. I love the suspense ... keeps me from cursing unsuspecting innocents ...

Who are the "unsuspecting innocents"
I suspect everyone, and curse everyone.
YOU are ALL messing with my computer and causing
quakes and slowdowns!!!!

still quaking pretty badly- especially with the Word Matches, not so much the Rounds.

There is something wrong with the showdown challenges. I just answered a showdown challenge question in six to eight seconds, and when the next screen came up it showed something like 19.34 seconds. Also, I have two open showdowns, but one of the showdowns is not showing up when I click on showdown challenges.

I have the same problem with an open showdown. It does not show up and there is no way to check the time left on it.
