15 or 20 seconds would be a good amount of time for this quiz. 15 seconds should be pretty competitive and weed out most people

Definitely. It's not a fast typing quiz, however. Should still be room to take one minute of the time? I had 2:43 remaining.

What does 'Weed out most people' mean? sounds to me like some sort of speed typing elitism.

Getting 100% on the quiz doesn't prove much. In order to make a victory meaningful, it is imperative that most others fail.

but 15 seconds means that you know them all and you know them in order (roughly 1.5 seconds per answer). leaving some room for thinking and a bit of guessing doesn't take away from the quiz in my opinion. anyone who REALLY wants to get 100% on the quiz can always look up the answers in either case, so getting 100% is never going to be an accomplishment that you can show off, it's just for you to know that you did it. in the same sense, if you think that finishing a quiz in 15 seconds is an accomplishment, you can take note of how long you took and be proud of that. no need to limit other people from having fun with a quiz where they can do a bit of guessing.

The point in getting 100% on a quiz is to know the actual quiz. The point in getting 100% on a speed typing quiz is the ability to memorize and type fast. Maybe a minute would be better, but why 15 seconds?

This is a free quiz website on the internet, not a national competition. None of it "means" anything. It's better for quizzes to have time for people to try to think of answers they don't all know off the top of their head. People who want to rapid-fire answer or test their typing speed are the reason there are "in 15 seconds" or "one minute sprint" versions of quizzes. In other words, this one is fine how it is.

I take these quizzes on mobile, and 15 seconds is far too little time to type it out. Even on computer only the fastest typists would be able to get 100%.

15 seconds would require you really knowing the subject well, focusing, and being able to touch type. 1 minute should be enough time for anyone if you're not completely guessing, I think.

Good Quiz, once again though the speed typists want to spoil a General Knowledge quiz by turning it into a speed typing competition. Why, if they are so keen in speed typing do they not just go against the clock?..... I think they must want to spoil it for those of us that enjoy using our brains as much as out fingers.

Saying that sprints "spoil" slower-speed quizzes is like saying that the 100 meter Olympic sprint spoils the Marathon. Each type demands different skills, and appeals to different people. Jetpunk's diversity of quizzes is one of its strengths.

I'm fairly certain Malbaby was referring to the speedy typists wanting to shorten the time in this particular quiz; no one is opposed to having two separate quizzes (one with shorter time for the speed crew).

That's fair, except then perhaps the description should indicate mainland. Let me be the first to line up for the sequel that has all the east coast countries :)
