SHOWDOWN CHALLENGE QUESTION?

So, just wondering, if Wengeruk (Or as I like to refer to him the "Big Billionaire") wants to stage a Showdown Challenge...who would he challenge?

Ken Jennings? Einstein? Sploofus? God?

Just one of those "chicken or the egg" thoughts?

Maybe he should just have to challenge everyone and see if he can beat us all collectively.

Never mind, bad idea...something tells me he would win.

I think your notoriety precedes you Kimmie, we're playing to see who comes in second....

Just hoping I don't fall off the screen. Can't even begin to imagine coming in under 30...much less beating her.

I'm just grateful to get on the screen. My pages usually don't load as fast as her times. Tonight I waited for the page to load, answered two questions and realized I knew one of them was wrong so just hit submit. With page load and two questions answered, it was 34 seconds. ARRRRRRRGGGGGGGHH!

You know for such a seemingly nice lady, Kimmie is wicked in Wordrounds....I stand by my nickname for her "Dominatrix".....

Lets take a vote. How many of you think that Kimmie takes the #1 place in WR too often? A show of hands please. I hope you know I'm just kidding Kimmie. An after thought, maybe you could give the rest of us just a little chance, please.

I am hoping that my belated Christmas present from Sploofus is a separate WordRound room. Where Kimmie, Linenlady and Marmac can't play in the sandbox with the rest of us.

Now...this spoiled child is taking her toys and going home. Until her mommy buys her a superfast computer and a superfast brain (I'm on the transplant list).

I do have a cable modem, but somehow, my pages load pretty slowly. I only try the word rounds in the early morning hours, when fewer people are playing, (and I don't have to be working!). Even so, I cannot get higher than about 10th. It takes at least 10 seconds for the first question to appear, and by then it is all over!!

You make a good point, Bigbird. We're all only as fast as our loading time. If there were some way for the loading time to be deducted from the actual time of play, I think you'd get a truer picture of your capabilities and enjoy the rounds more.

Word up, linenlady (my resolution is to resurrect the phrase "Word up." I'm just kidding).
Sometimes I know I get through a round quickly, especially those delicious rounds where the definitions are short and the answers obvious, but my loading time drags me down. Oh, well. I still have fun. But I do wish your load time could be subtracted.

I've been saying all along one's WordRound should NOT start until page loads....with you 100%!! I'd go so far as to say time should start once you've clicked your first answer!

Thanks for the props, gang!

Clicking the first answer I'm afraid will lead to problems, Kimmie. What's to stop anyone from scrolling down the page, making the choices, then start clicking? The best part of Word Rounds the way it is, is the fact that you can't cheat. I think having the timing start with full loading is closer to accurate, but slow load times are still a factor. The Sploofus site loading time is only one factor, then there's your ISP and computer, for which Sploofus, after all, can't be responsible. But, definitely, timing shouldn't start with the first click.

I'm with Chickbref......needing a brain transplant some mornings when I just can't get a few braincells herding co-operatively into the same direction....Word Wars!

Yeah, linenlady...didn't think about someone scrolling and getting their answers together first...guess I'm too honest! Or, dumb!

Tee hee!!

I hate it that when you get a round that does load quickly, you get that blasted 90% in 25 sec. or under. THEN!!.... you get one that loads when it's good and ready, and you get 100% in 35-45 seconds thanks to the slooooooow load..... I have to be the king of the 9 out of 10 times!!! LOL Too bad it's not like 'No Tap' in bowling, where 9's count as strikes!!

Kimmie, Kimmie, Kimmie!
When do you eat? When do you sleep? Please, we need a schedule here.
You are done with the word round (18 seconds!) before my page even loads-LOL
Gotta get me that DSL thingie.
