Those 2 added questions for Quant are for everyone right? Also those who could post the solutions and scored the points in the first 12 hours of posting the questions so how is this fair? Those who couldn't post explanations still stand at a disadvantage vs those who did within 12 hours yesterday. Our team is missing on a lot of points. please make this even bb.

Its the same for me. I'm smashing questions on a daily basis, but my timer count isn't accurately reflected. Bit annoying

I'm facing the same problem too. Taking timers on all the questions everyday but doesn't seem like the dashboard is counting it in correctly. Bb could you please check?

1. Please post a screenshot from your workbook showing you took the timers and showing how much time you took.

2. Did you take a timer and solve a question or did you just click the answer without starting the timer.

3. Timer stats are reflected within 5 minutes for the questions that are posted each day. The 30 timers per day are reflected within 24 hrs. It is not exactly clear which timers you are referring to. I assumed the daily questions.


Thanks
BB.

Exactly. It seems hard to understand what some comments mean. It seems people are expecting to put very little effort and expect to receive a big outcome but usually, in my experience, the output is proportionate to input.

Thanks for the question. There is no problem with the system. We have reviewed and tested it many times. I don’t know what the exact issue is. I can’t see your error long but If you want a more detailed reply please post a screenshot of the questions you took from your error log with times and duration of the timer taken.

Thank you
BB.

Glad we found the issue. GOT points are Completely different and are used solely for the competition.

For example, no, you can’t take a few timers and post a ramble reply and get 150 rewards points that you could redeem for a course within a day. Good try....

:lol: :lol: :lol:

Dont underestimate those horsemen over the narrow sea. We have to work hard. During several days from the begining, they were leading even with the bigger handicap.

Sir i think from my analysis of times they are increasingly only if we solve new questions posted by bunnel or a moderator in recent times. Practice of og questions or some random questions will not record timer

As Bunuel has one brain (I highly suppose that :) ) and we (potential borrowers) are so many, according to the free market rules, to rent his brain would cost so much I definitely could not afford : ))))))

bb Bunuel

Here is my query

in the attached file, There is my explanation for one of the GOT questions.
Somehow I did not deserve kudo :)

1) Maybe I'm too tired to find any problem with my explanation. in this case receive my apologies;
2) Maybe Bunuel mechanically skipped it;

Here is the question link
