Happy Valentine’s Day from TypeRacer – New Texts Added

Posted on February 14, 2018. Filed under: TypeRacer News |

Chat with other typists on the TypeRacer Discord chat!

Hi all!

Today, as a Valentine’s Day gift to the TypeRacer community, we’ve activated a fresh batch of English quotes in the main “Play” universe. As usual, we’ve included a mixture of critically-acclaimed sources, popular sources and user-submissions.

Ever wondered what the easiest/hardest TypeRacer texts are? Or which texts you type fastest on? Check out TypeRacerData.

This batch includes 450 new texts (a 10% increase to the total TypeRacer English text selection).

I’d like to thank Vielle (vielle – TRData) for helping support this text growth; we’ve also included some of the labors of Michael DeRoche (deroche1 – TRData) and Sean Wrona (arenasnow2 – TRData), who have helped in the painstaking task of adding texts into the database. This batch includes texts they previously helped enter and which had fallen onto my backlog for activation.  (If you’re interested in helping add the next batch, join the TypeRacer Chat and talk to Valikor!)

As usual, a list of the “top sources” is below — showing all the sources for which more than one quote was added. A list of community contributors who have at least one quote added in today’s batch is at the bottom of the post.

Click here for the full list of texts added, and to see which text of yours was added! 

As a reminder, you can also check out the latest texts in the Pit Stop text database. Below is a sample link — you can find the textID for your text at the link above, and just paste it into the URL (id=XYZ) to see the top scores, how many times your text has been raced, etc.

Thanks for everyone’s support in building the typing experience on the site. We hope the new texts can freshen up the typing experience, and hopefully make it easier to get on the high scores for individual texts.
