After today's WR run, I've decided to enable milliseconds in the timings. This is so that the leaderboard can be more accurate. All applicable speedruns will be edited to include milliseconds. The finish is determined by the fart noise after finishing question 110, as that's when the last skip has been clicked. Some timings may be a little off, but that's fine.
Also, there are some timers which I can't figure out, such as timers that don't do the full milliseconds which I couldn't figure out.

This also means some splits are off, such as Soloq's run, but only because they couldn't stop the timer the exact moment they finished.

IMO, the fart noise should not be the point at which the timer should be stopped. A visual cue is a much better determiner. Most people's runs include the mouse cursor, so when your cursor changes from the link select cursor to the regular cursor should be the point at which the timer is stopped. In the rules it says "run ends when you've clicked all 7 skips at the end of the game". This is the exact time in which the 7th skip is clicked.

Yeah, I just noticed that the fart noise happens around the same time as that.

Yeah, it is around the same time, but it's not the exact same time. I think there may be a desync in some people's audio. My run would be 4:22.860, Fan's run is correct at 4:23.801, SoloQ's run is 4:24.460, Grroink's run is correct at 4:25.867, and InkSadnessRain's run is 4:26.320.

SoloQ, InkSadnessRain and I all have slightly longer times than necessary. To put it bluntly, I think that my method of timing is more accurate than the one you use, and the mouse cursor is more consistent than audio that may be out of sync.

I know i don't run this anymore, so my opinion ain't really worth much, but i agree with cygnusloop, it just seems more accurate to use a visual cue

Ye thanks a lot the2thomasklu8. Maybe consider changing it for The Impossible Quiz Book too and the Impossible Quiz 2.
