Find out using this test


How to use

A sentence is shown to you, you have to type in each letter correctly, if you get a letter wrong then you can't move on to the next until you get it correct.


Competition

Comment your top Words per Minute (WPM) and, at the end of next week (9th May) 12pm GMT, the person with the best WPM will get
.

.

2 Cycles!!!!

(and of course for such an amazing prize, you will need proof of your WPM)


Thanks to @xolyon as usual for their colour tutorial (here)


Any typos that are pointed out are greatly appreciated

@MrEconomical Try beating this!

LOL! os.system("bash") and curl are awesome, aren't they?

PowerCoder (590)

@MrEconomical You are better than some typing champions click me They had a harder test though.

MrEconomical (2203)

@CodingCactus @PowerCoder Managed to improve my score a tad, actually tried this time ;)

MrEconomical (2203)

@CodingCactus also add "The quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog"

CodingCactus (2824)

@MrEconomical I have no idea how your doing these, I can't comprehend that speed!!!

MrEconomical (2203)

@CodingCactus It doesn't really count as it's only one sentence, easy to burst. For a more accurate measure, I would recommend passages of from 2-3 sentences, but that can be for a future update

CodingCactus (2824)

@MrEconomical okay, I'll find some stuff tomorrow :)

DynamicSquid (2673)

@CodingCactus wait, I just realized that you gained almost 700 cycles in 12 days! well done :)

HahaYes (1051)

@MrEconomical Wait a sec is MrEconimical spelled right? huh

PowerCoder (590)

Can you add a second, third, and fourth place on the leaderboard?

Ygngt (5)

Beat @MrEconomical I going to keep trying for a faster wpm

Ygngt (5)

@MrEconomical I know I can't beat that score. It took me like an hour to get up to 176

CodingCactus (2824)

@Ygngt I've reset the leaderboard for the longer passages, @MrEconomical hasn't set a speed yet, you could go to 1st place if you do it again.

CodingCactus (2824)

@ChezCoder wow! That puts you right at the top of the leader board

ChezCoder (1484)

@CodingCactus finally, i won something in life

AmazingMech2418 (693)

Sentence suggestion: "Pi is the best mathematical constant and is a thousand times better than tau."

AmazingMech2418 (693)

Another suggestion: "This is easy to hack using os.system and the curl command."

AmazingMech2418 (693)

@CodingCactus Maybe "You can hack this program easily by using from os import system and then opening a bash console and using the curl command to pipe a new Python file into main.py to make it seem like you got a million words per minute."

AmazingMech2418 (693)

@CodingCactus For the other one, "Pi is better than tau and is the best mathematical constant and if you say tau is better, that is just because you are lazy and don't want to have to press two buttons on the calculator to multiply by two since tau is just twice pi, although it is unnecessary since pi is the best mathematical constant anyways, although you could argue that Euler's constant is a close second.

AmazingMech2418 (693)

@CodingCactus I made it longer though, just like you said!

Isaacatreplit (2)

@AmazingMech2418 I disagree with that comment, tau is better than pi

StudentFires (341)

@Isaacatreplit Ik right? I told him... he just won't listen...

HahaYes (1051)

I believe I have received my 2 cycles y/n ?

CodingCactus (2824)

@HahaYes no, sorry I forgot

here you go

and here's another one

HahaYes (1051)

@CodingCactus lol thanks for all the support :)

HahaYes (1051)

@CodingCactus your website? anyways, good morning!

CodingCactus (2824)

@HahaYes nope, some guys. But they haven't given me credit :( I'm working on that

CodingCactus (2824)

@HahaYes good morning! It's afternoon where I am tho :)

HahaYes (1051)

@CodingCactus I can take down the website with some DDoS attacks...

CodingCactus (2824)

@HahaYes lol, do what you want to it (but don't do anything illegal)

HahaYes (1051)

@CodingCactus I'm a New Yorka, life's never been better

HahaYes (1051)

@CodingCactus *insert coffin dance meme

CodingCactus (2824)

@HahaYes cool, I've been there once, It's quite crowded

HahaYes (1051)

@CodingCactus yep, coronavirus never looked better there. It's like a zombie apocalypse

CodingCactus (2824)

@HahaYes lol, Donald Trump's pretty stupid

HahaYes (1051)

@CodingCactus Yes, how do you Europeans think of Trump? I have never known. "LIES, alllllll LIES"

CodingCactus (2824)

@HahaYes I'm pretty sure most people think he is an idiot (no offence to anyone)

HahaYes (1051)

@CodingCactus Yep he is, that's why I'm independent

HahaYes (1051)

@CodingCactus Also enjoy the 4 cycles :)

HahaYes (1051)

@CodingCactus Lol, this is a example of Americans on the news.
Go watch it
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lLGNaQVNJnM

HahaYes (1051)

I HAVE DONE IT
IF ANYONE BEATS THIS THEN THEY ARE CHEATING
THIS TOOK ME 2 HOURS TO BEAT

CodingCactus (2824)

@HahaYes someone had already beaten this lol (look at learderboard)

HahaYes (1051)

@HahaYes The 152 avg wpm was me getting a 30 wpm. It was pretty funny

HahaYes (1051)

@CodingCactus This was me grinding for 1 hr and 30 min

CodingCactus (2824)

@HahaYes ohhhhhhhh, sorry no idea what I was on about there

HahaYes (1051)

@CodingCactus Yo can you check out my primenumbergenerator? Everyone is apparently getting a headache from it for some reason

HahaYes (1051)

@CodingCactus Yeah just click on my name

CodingCactus (2824)

@HahaYes you haven't posted it, but it is one of your repls?

HahaYes (1051)

@CodingCactus the Abusing the Time limit

CodingCactus (2824)

@HahaYes ahh, why are people confused by it?

HahaYes (1051)

@CodingCactus It is giving them a headache

HahaYes (1051)

@CodingCactus Just look at it and run it

CodingCactus (2824)

@HahaYes it looks pretty simple to me?

HahaYes (1051)

@CodingCactus Yep that is the point so it can run fast

HahaYes (1051)

@CodingCactus C++ is the fastest language

CodingCactus (2824)

@HahaYes no one said that it gave them headaches tho?

CodingCactus (2824)

@HahaYes there was someone that already had a headache before they looked at it

kbadrinath_tcsp (212)

The addition of the long passages is amazing, it really makes it so that we can't use the short sentence to type in bursts. This is a much better way to test WPM! @CodingCactus

CodingCactus (2824)

@kbadrinath_tcsp should I reset the leaderboard for the new passages?

If so, what is your best WPM on these passages?

kbadrinath_tcsp (212)

Just checked my screenshot. It isn't 134 WPM. It is actually 130. sorry for the typo. It is definitely lower than before. @CodingCactus

CodingCactus (2824)

@kbadrinath_tcsp ok, you are currently in the lead on these passages (no-one else has a time yet)

CodingCactus (2824)

Do you mind if you replied your WPM to this comment, so that I can keep track of them better?
:)

CodingCactus (2824)

@MrEconomical @ygngt @kbadrinath_tcsp Can you set some new times, because I changed the sentences to more like short passages :)

Isaacatreplit (2)

@Isaacatreplit Not bad, but I did hack the system a bit....

AmazingMech2418 (693)

@Isaacatreplit Stop the program, type from os import system, then system('bash'). Then, use curl <link to server> > main.py to replace main.py without forking it. Of course, replace <link to server> with a link to a server hosting the version to replace it with.

AmazingMech2418 (693)

When you try to beat @MrEconomical at typing and are 44 WPM off...

CodingCactus (2824)

@AmazingMech2418 lol, I can only ever get up to 60

AmazingMech2418 (693)

@CodingCactus LOL! I kind of have an advantage though with three years of typing classes (well, the second two were more of MS Office, but we also did typing exercises) in middle school...

CodingCactus (2824)

@AmazingMech2418 oh lol, i didn't know typing classes were things

AmazingMech2418 (693)

@CodingCactus Well, at my middle school, the name of the first one was Keyboarding and Basic Word Processing, but I don't know if you have classes like that where you are. However, after time, you will get faster at typing...

CodingCactus (2824)

@AmazingMech2418 ye, I reckon at the end of all this eSchool period, or whatever it's called, I'll be quite a lot faster (hopefully)

AmazingMech2418 (693)

@CodingCactus LOL! Yeah. By the way, if you made this in HTML/JS, I would be submitting a screenshot with 1000 WPM... You should know why. LOL!

CodingCactus (2824)

@AmazingMech2418 you could probably still do that hack that you did with tic tac toe?

AmazingMech2418 (693)

@CodingCactus I don't think 1,000,000 WPM is even possible, but why not change the code to make it possible?

StudentFires (341)

@MrEconomical You might wanna check the scores again, unless you're uninterested of course.

VulcanWM (2011)

I am trying to make a new thing in my website called circuits. It is going to be a bit like cycles. So every time somebody gives me a game or quiz to put on my website, I give them a circuit. Do you have a VWM Gaming Profile so I can note down your 2 circuits? @CodingCactus

CodingCactus (2824)

@medcho no, but I would love it if you actually credited me for my code like you said that you would!

CodingCactus (2824)

@medcho you changed it from saying CodingCactus's typing..... to 'my typing.......'

VulcanWM (2011)

Shall I change i back then? @CodingCactus

HahaYes (1051)

Line 135 srsly CodingCactus? Again? leaderborad = (leaderboard)

[deleted]

@ZacPlayz This makes me feel a bit better about myself.

BobTheTomatoPie (1052)

This is so cool! I love how you made the leader board!

HahaYes (1051)

Yo CodingCactus upvote my primenumbergenerator project
thnks

CodingCactus (2824)

Yo Hahayes upvote my python tutorial post

lol

arnavratna (26)

Sorry, what do you mean by two cycles?

CodingCactus (2824)

@arnavratna the number next to your name

HahaYes (1051)

Confirmed: without mech keyboard my WPM drops to a 130
Mechanical keyboards are awesome

HahaYes (1051)

Tips on getting faster WPM: Buy a mechanical keyboard with blue switches.
Then only compress them halfway down so you can get an insane WPM

this is very good and creative yeet
