I complain all the time about this and it is never addressed. This is another typing speed test. 90 seconds is ridiculous to a slow typist. At least offer a timer free version. This site should be about learning, not a competition. It is so arrogant to not respond or acknowledge that a lot of people just don't type very well. They don't even tech typing in school anymore.I see someone else here has the same complaint.

It's cool for those who seek a challenge.

If you don't and just want to learn, go on and click the time-free option, which is always available.

The fact that you protest about the arrogance and competitiveness of this type of quizzes just because you want your 5 points so bad is hilariously hypocritical.

+1
Level 69

You are just assuming he wants 5 points. Not everyone cares about points you know.. (insert: you assuming he just wants points is absolutely...)

I haven't done any of these quizzes for points. If I score 1 point or 5, in either case it is on to the next quiz. The fun is in learning and or testing yourself. Apparenly not for some..

To me it sounds he wants a chance to be able to finish the quiz, or atleast fill in everything (most) he knows. (and clearly was not aware there is a way to do it untimed)

I understand where he is coming from. I like a challenge, but doing a quiz where you can only type in 10% of what you know is no fun. I think the best ones are those where you can type in what you know and have a little bit of time to remember those that slipped your mind or try and use logic to get a few answers you missed. How that that is ofcourse differs per person ( and quiz).

You can omit Amharic, and also replace the Croatian, Montenegrin etc. "languages" with Serbo-Croatian. In any case, it's definitely not easy for everyone to type all this in 90 seconds.

Sadly, once again, the scoring is more about it being a typing speed test rather then knowledge. Why not base it on a more average typist and those with age-impaired evesight? The fast typists will still bask in their score and perhaps aim to do it quicker, but for me it just causes frustration.
