Ability to pause a question's timer
Once a question timer starts counting down, there is no way to pause or add extra time before it expires. Sometimes situations arise where players need more time and game hosts want to accommodate.
If there was a "pause" button on screen (or if clicking/tapping the timer paused it), game hosts would be able to extend a question's timer to however long they need.
Since there is no pause feature right now, it's possible to embed a youtube video into any question you might want to pause and use the media player's pause button. So long as the video never finishes playing, the question timer won't start counting down.
This would be an excellent feature. Sometimes my students don't recognise a piece of vocab and I need to explain it before the timer runs low and there's no time left for them to answer.
Other times, there is a debate about a certain answer and it's a good speaking opportunity. It would be great to pause the timer and have the class discuss the question and it's possible answers.
