WORDROUNDS....WHAT'S THE DEAL?

Why do they take so long to load? I am on either a T1 (at work) or Cable (at home).

Next question....the slow loading IS adding to our completion times, right?

I think the loading time does add to it because I will speed through one yet still have it say it took me 50 to 60 seconds. I don't know why that happens.

I was thinking exactly the same thing.

Really, the time should start when you click your first answer!

This has been a painful source of discussion for a long time. Once upon a time, the timing started when the whole page had loaded; and it was good. Then the program was tinkered with and the timing started when you clicked "Start a Word Round" and it was bad. If you're lucky the page loads quickly and you look great, if you're not, it doesn't and you don't. You're not alone.

Didn't the load times go faster when there was a script at the bottom of the page or something like that?

Ok, now you're just speaking Greek. I don't know your fancy internet terminology!

That'd be great if it started timing you after the page loaded! I'm often staring at the first question for 5-15 seconds before the rest pop up.

I can't really complain though. It's not as slow as what some people here have described...and randomly, like 30% of the time, it'll load normally and I can get scores I'm very happy with. (just got my best ever, a 22.4! =)

I've never gotten under 33 seconds, and I'm usually in the 40's. I've timed the loading and it usually takes about 10-12 seconds on cable modem.

Some days you are the bug and some days you are the windshield!That's wordrounds for you-some days fast and some days slow.
