I was just through four of the five questions of the "wireless catalogue" quiz, when the fifth question showed up for what was apparently the next quiz, which is basically a "before and after" style quiz. Anyway, the fifth question, with the different topic, came up after the 8 pm EST time, which I'm assuming is the problem. I'm just asking if it isn't possible for a quiz to start be allowed to finish regardless of the flipover time. Secondly, I started to take the before and after (and I know it wasn't called specifically that, just the general style, you all will know what I mean). In the middle, my computer froze, and I had to restart. Upon returning, the quiz showed up as already taken, although my score a loss such as I experienced? I am not hardcore about points and such; it is more of an aggravation. Granted, some of that is with my computer itself, but I was hoping the Sploofus system might deal better with such undesired phenomena.

Oh, and repeating a previous comment on the WP authoring, I really don't like it when the subtitles and the overall titles are the same or similar. This was the case in the latter instance above.

Thanks for reading my rantings...

Send a support ticket. The puzzle will be reset for you, and you will be able too try it again.

You seem to have encountered more than one issue. First, if you're still working on a WP after 8:00 AM/PM ET, the TITLE of the WP at the top of the screen will change to the new WP's title. The question and clue will still be from the not-yet-quite-expired WP.

However, if you continue working past 8:15 ET, the WP you were working on DOES expire and you will get 0 (zero) points for it as well as possibly getting locked up in Sploofus for some period of time.

It's not clear from your description whether or not you had an additional problem beyond going past 8:00, but there is a grace period of 15 minutes which can end very ungracefully if it's exceeded.

Also, if you begin a WP not long after it begins, e.g., at 8:10, you may get the dreaded "you have already taken this puzzle" message. I suspect that's especially true if you're in WP Limbo because you exceeded the 8:15 deadline on the prior WP. A problem ticket will get you reset so you can do the current WP.

At any rate, a problem ticket would be a good idea. Good luck.
