  5. Red timer change


Red timer change

I find the change to the timer where it goes red with five seconds left really distracting... it throws me off and I'm already going as fast as I can! I would love the option to switch it off! What do you think?

I agree. It heightens the chance of me not finishing that translation. I don't want to live in fear of the timer =)


There already is an option, go to your profile and check the sound effects off.


Ah, I already had them off, I didn't even realise there were sound effects! But I was talking about the visual...maybe it seems silly but it always draws my eyes to that part of the screen rather than the question I should be focusing on!
