I know my world countries like nobody's business, and I couldn't do this quiz, even if I had 10 minutes! Of course, I am a hopeless typist. But to actually complete this quiz you'd need to type at around an average of 3 to 4 countries per second! Is there anyone who can do this? Wow!

Yeah, I know for sure mine didn't make it in the records either, and I got 66. I think it is not accepting some score stats. I know for sure more than 64 is very easily possible, especially if I can do it, and I know I'm not nearly the fastest here. Jerry, I don't think any of the really good typists have done any of your sprint quizzes seriously, except maybe for the three minute sprint. I was going by ascending order of number of letters per country, starting with UK, and of course using a list. Becauselet's be honest, anyone who is taking these sprints already knows all the countries anyway, and just needs a list to see how fast they can type.

DollarBill2208 has asked "How do you know if someone is cheating, unless they admit it?". Usually you can't - if you want to inflate your score and grab extra quiz points, just write down the answers after you take a test, take the quiz again and copy the answers in. It's a bit like picking up your tee shot, dropping it in the cup and signing your card for a hole-in-one. But this quiz is probably unique on Jetpunk - it's the only quiz where you can post a 100% score and automatically out yourself as a cheat. By the way, I honor the amazing 66 you've gotten on this quiz with real typing.

The quizzes about 4,5 et 6 letter country names surely help, in addition to the few acronyms (UK, USA, CAR, UAE ; DRC is not interesting, it's better to get two answers by typing Congo). I only managed to get 49 by typing the shortest names, I know I can do a little better, but surely not more than 60. So, there seems to be a 100% and it's annoying because it's surely fake and it prevents anyone to get 5 points ;).

I didn't take it since December 2014, so still at 61, which beats 99,8% of takers... easy to go over 60? I don't think so, you have to be a fast typist. Fortunately, it's now possible to get 5 points if you beat 95% of takers, so I won't have to try to do better ;).

Jul 19, 2015
it only counts your very first try... unless they edit the quiz answers, and reset everyone's score, then you can try for 71 again. If that's not the problem, then it could be that you are the only one with 71, and since this quiz has been taken 15,000+ times, it will not be enough to raise the percentage even 0.1%. Just a guess, so maybe your score is there, but it can't be seen. It makes sense to me. Now what they SHOULD do is add a statistic that shows not only percentages, but the total number of people who have earned every score. I.E., if there are 8 people who have earned a score of 69, then it should show the number 8 by the 69 statistic. It would be much more accurate than percentages. Just a thought.
