The in between timer game timer has been reduced from 30secs to 15sec. I think this is a lot worse than before and kills the social aspect of the game.

Not sure what you talking about there - possibly another online boggle site?
The intermission timer on this weboggle site has always been at least 30 seconds, and quite often, it is a bit longer than 30 seconds (depending on the server's ability to keep up, as well as your internet connection speed).
