Timed practice problem

Hello.

I've been using DL for a while. Now everyday I try to strengthen my skills with "timed practice", and I see a bug that, IMO, is very annoying: the time is not stopping even if you are reporting a mistake or reading/posting a discussion of that sentence.

I think time should stop once you finished that exercise, until you click "continue" to the next one. I was learning a lot reading the discussion, but since I'm doing "timed practice" I don't have time to read that, so I can't learn from my mistakes.

Is this going to be fixed?

Thank you!

This is not an error, but the way Timed Practice is supposed to work. Some people (like me) agree that Timed Practice should pause for discussion reading or error reporting, but others have been very vocal about liking it the way it is. I don't see it changing any time soon.
