Don't throw our Diana away - she's checking us out, and will soon be up at the top again, just watch!
Yes Cherry I agree, I love sport as well, but NFL, etc - no clue at all!

Much of the time, it's not the quiz - either I'm dumb or I get lucky with the guessing!  image201 image04 image201

In my case, I can only recognize or deduct the answer. Will never be able to answer if you asked me straight!
I do have a problem reading, and from my quiz times that should be obvious.  That's probably why I haven't read any fiction or newspapers in the last 15 years!  Prefer to listen to radio/TV, or study non-fiction on own time.

Lekker upset.  Just got into Cherry's quiz (very nice one!), but only managed to SEE 12 questions of which I could answer 8.  Rest of the time I had the following error messages and problems:
1. Message:  "Problem getting question, trying again."   Then it skipped a question.
2. Message:  "Time-out"  at the start of a question, while the timer is still running on the missed question.  If you look at my score, you will see it counted 40 time-outs?!
3. While on question 10 I couldn't remove the error message, or go to ANY other window. It was frozen. I had to restart my computer to get out.

This happened while my 3G reception was optimal, so it couldn't have been my speed/reception.

Pity.  Thanks anyway Cherry, really nice variety of questions!  Hope you throw another one in there!

Bertie, firstly, Sorry for that and second of all, I have posted your comment on the developers forum, to see what reply or suggestions I get..... I already know that he is going to say something along the line that 3 other people played the quiz and never had a timeout issue, but lets wait and see, perhaps somebody else out there in the world using the quiz software has a fix.....

All OK Mike, I know it's not your problem, your site is still the best ever  -quick and easy to navigate.
Just one thing - the other 3 people who played that specific quiz ( including yourself)- according to the stats, you only had 2 questions? Did you also bomb out?

Um sorry Diana; posted the quiz the fist time and could only post 2 questions then only added the other 13 today so I think your problem was my fault.  Bertie's problem not y fault though!   image031

Bertie, here is a reply so far from the okie that developed the software.....

"he quiz uses Ajax, so if there is a network issue between the server and the client there may be a timeout. At the moment it should retry is this happens and allow you to retry a number of times. Ultimately you can leave the quiz and then continue it again later, although you will have lost the opportunity to answer the last question - this is a measure to stop cheating.

No idea about the restarting computer issue, coincidence?

On my other board I have had 7470 quizes played and 89603 questions played. Yes, there have been some timeouts but the members realise that it is going to happen occasionally although rarely. Other than that they have not had problems."


The entire Oranjemundonline is hosted on a server in Texas, so there is a first world connection to the site.... at this stage I am still baffled....
