Am I not allowed to promote a relevant quiz in the comment section here? Why were my comments removed? Is there something wrong with me making a more challenging version of this quiz and linking it here for others to challenge themselves?

It is frowned upon to copy a quiz and just change something small, especially with no credit to the original work. And then posting it on the original quiz is also seen as a sign of greed, trying to capitalise of the success of the original.

I understand, and I've added a credit at the top of that quiz (as I should have done originally). When I took this quiz, my first thought was that it should be long enough that nobody could finish so the answer stats could reflect the true distribution of scores, and seeing that somebody else had commented something similar I thought I should just go ahead and make it myself (as is often suggested on this site whenever somebody complains about a quiz). You're welcome to copy it back to have it on your own account though, and I can delete it, as it is true that I didn't put effort into making it.

Thanks for understanding, you've been on JetPunk a long time and it's clear your intentions were good, so I'll let you keep it on your account. Thanks!

Generally people don't like quizzes which are impossible to finish, which is why I did 1 a second, so that it was possible to finish even if there was a slight skew to 100%. Plus, there's more gratification when people get 100% then just getting a new PB :P

I think success depends on the number of "awkward" words that appear in the list - sometimes I can do it, sometimes not, and it's usually when I get a number of words that contain little-used letters in combination with one another that I just can't make it happen!
