Cancel the current test when no keystrokes have been typed for X seconds.

Hello,

You know, that moment when you start a test, interrupt it for some reason, and forget to (or can't) reload it. This results in an abnormally low score, which drastically drops your average. This has happened and still happens to a lot of people for years.

So I suggest setting up a security that would automatically cancel the test when no keystrokes have been detected, let's say for 5 or 10 seconds, for example.

This would put an end to this recurring and demoralizing plague.

Good point, I'll look into it!

If a user hasn't typed for 15 seconds (the last 15 seconds) the result will not be saved and an alert will be shown at the end. I can reduce the number of seconds to 5 or 10 if that is needed.

15 seconds should be fine.

Had some issues at first but should be working now, I reduced it to 10 seconds. Please let me know if you run into any issues :)

It works fine, the test is canceled and doesn't appear on the graph. Nice! This should please many people.

Just a small thing: if I don't click on "OK" and if I reload the page, the score is still displayed in the recent activity.

But that doesn't matter since it's not counted. ^^

THANKS for adding this!!! :DDDD. It is a VERY NICE idea for clueless people like me who starts a test, does another thing and forgets about the test xD. ^^. Now I won't have any accidental scores.

THANK YOU!! I start tests at work when I have down time - then the phone will ring! It has drastically reduced my scores! This will help considerably! Thank you!!!
