Encouraging honest competition
We’ve taken measures in the past that make it harder to cheat, but if you saw the top 20 (Fastest Typists) last month, you know that quite a few individuals are still very much determined.
Starting this week, you will need a (non-guest) account to get onto the Latest High Scores, and at least 100 races to get into the Fastest Typists leaderboard. The first restriction is actually intended more to discourage spam rather than cheating, but the second was introduced specifically to give us enough time to review all contestants and delete those accounts suspected of cheating. That’s right – from now on, all accounts suspected of cheating will be promptly deleted, as stated in our Terms of Service.
