"pise" can also be write, not only type

It is accepted. You have to tell us what exactly was declined, but write per se is accepted here.

I'm not saying it was declined, I used the word bank - just that is another possible translation :)

I put "which of you is writing fastest" and it was rejected. To me, that's normal English that everyone uses. Please can it be added or can someone tell me why I'm wrong (perhaps it is to do with the Czech). I've reported it anyway. Thanks :)

rychltji is faster, so nejrychleji would be "none faster"? ie. the fastest? (just looking for etymological clues)

It is just the superlative prefix. There is something in paragraph 3.3 in https://books.google.cz/books?id=SuR8DwAAQBAJ&pg=PA1546&lpg=PA1546&dq=proto+slavic+superlative&source=bl&ots=HLHzr1gAgP&sig=ACfU3U0Xhni041yaBb-ZuDPX7JHdNz-s1w&hl=cs&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwjzw8_1yLnjAhXEaVAKHYPbBQEQ6AEwA3oECAYQAQ#v=onepage&q=proto%20slavic%20superlative&f=false Your guess may not be that far (na is the same as current Czech na (on). (j)i meant what is on in Czech (he) but perhaps it is a meaningless particle here? I do not know.).
