I just played Pot of Gold. When I hit submit I got a message saying the FT server was restarting, please try later. I went back, hit submit again, got a message saying there was no record of me playing the game, please reload and try again. Went to Pot of Gold start page, hit play, a completely new set of questions came up. Played, when I hit submit I got a message saying the game had expired, I must have played just as it was changing over.

I had a similar experience playing the World game. I wound up playing three different sets of questions. That was ok, but the timer was not reset so I wound up with 355 seconds. If the questions can be reset why not the timer?

I've managed to play now, but with a time of 495 seconds. Annoying thing is I think I did quite well on the first set, which is rare for me on the Sunday one.

I had a similar problem with Mind Melt game. The first time I played I got the message: "There is no record of you having even started this quiz! Perhaps this tournament just came to an end. Please go back, reload, and try again." When I clicked "Play", I got the message: "The game is currently under maintenance. Try back in a couple of minutes!"

Similar experience today... in one of the Global games. I was able to go back and play. It had different questions, but I was not penalized for extra time.

I thought that it was my usual lousy Sunday connection problem

Always comforting to know you're not alone with these things.

Looks like the server crashed at 4:45 and restarted itself, which would explain these issues.

Everything acting ok now?

Seems to be, I haven't had any problems with anything since PoG.

The St. Patrick's Day leprechauns didn't want anyone stealing their pots of gold on the day of the Irish. wink
