If they call this one the speed version there is no issue. Doing the quizzes untimed is no fun, takes a lot of fun out of it. It is good that quizzes are timed but there should be a balance, enough time to think, not enough to randomly try every word in existence that might fit. Speed quizzes are fine to, but fun in a totally different way.

just because some like it fast that doesnt mean they should take away the fun for others, that is rather selfish.

following your argument (take untimed), Even when there is more time you are not FORCED to type slow, you can still try to go as fast as you can. Nothing changes for the worse

@quizmaster Could you perhaps call this one the speed version and make another one with an average amount of time.

Speedtests are fine and fun. But not everyone might know these by heart and some people might just want to test their knowledge. And expected this to be a normal quiz.

Maybe an idea for a section. All speed quizzes together? Some hate em some love. Everyone happy, the ones that like em have easy acces and the others can avoid them.

(I am in the middle sometimes I like em sometimes not, but I do like to know before hand if it is gonna be one or not. Speedquizzes are not something I tend to take when I am not feeling well and need to stay calm. But fun when you feel well, energetic and competive. It is almost more a physical challenge than a mental one. Which both can be great. But each on their own occasion.

If you don't like the time limit, you know there's an option to turn the timer off, right? You won't earn points but then you won't have to worry about trying to become a hacker (though if that is what you're going for, this site may not be the best place for that.)

This is a knowledge quiz, testing your knowledge of the two letter state abbreviations. The time limit is there because it's just two letters, and the quiz maker is expecting you can type two letter abbreviations fast.
