PROBLEM WITH WORD ROUNDS

Several times [already three times this morning] have completed a word round and instead of the answers I marked I was charged/credited with having entered other - clearly wrong alternatives.
Does this ever happen to anyone else. It's bad enough not being fast enough - which is ok -but I am pretty careful.

It seems to me that you are thinking you've selected one answer carefully, and at the end some kind of malfunction credits you with the wrong answer?? As far as I know this has never happened to me, but I can't be positive. That phenomena happens to me all the time only usually I credit the mistake to myself since I am not particularly careful at the speeds I am going. At the end of the wordrounds does the feedback I get say I have chosen answers which are clearly wrong and which I didn't mean to choose? YES, all the time, but as far as I know the "misclicks" are mistakes wholly of my own making. Dunno in your case.

Could be your computer then...but it could be some problem with the site. Wordrounds have had many errors and problems that have nothing to do with my own computer over the year and half since I've been playing. I wouldn't doubt it. If it continues...you could try a support ticket??

I would try this. After you have selected all of your answers, print the screen. After you hit submit, print the screen and see if the answers you selected are the same as the ones it says you selected. If they are indeed different, send in a support ticket and give specifics.

Good idea Lodi! Must admit I, like Jeremy, have attributed incorrect answers (which I know I did not select) to my skimming down the page too fast and perhaps clicking a fraction too late, or dragging before I release the button. Interesting to know what happens when you follow Lodi's suggestion though!

Thanks for all the feedback. Glad I'm not the only one to whom it happens. If it continues I'll take the advice of doing a screen-shot. In the meantime, before I started this thread, I sent in a support e-mail [sans documentation].

If you think your score is wrong just hit the back arrow on your browser. Then look to see what circles are filled in.

Sargon's way would probably be better. You can always go for a fast time, and then take a screen shot after you hit the back button.

thanks for this last tip. Still hope it doesn't keep happening so I can work on my speed!

I have had similar glitches on WordRounds also on some quizzes too. I assumed it might be my Mac computer.
