50-75? Not sure that many will be playing....who knows though

Now I love pub quizzes, but the one thing that spoils them is people using the internet to get the answers. So instead of WAP peole are gonna have full access to get all the answers, aren't they? Have I missed summit?

theres not much that can be doneabout that, at least everyone will have the same chance, even if a rule is made to not use the net, some will cheat lol
guess it will be down to whos fastest, this should be the ones that already know the answer!

Thanks everyone. By the way, i'm looking for more than just 6 players :giggle: So get those PM's in!

Do you think we should post this as a hot deal, and keep it locked, like emma did with the bingo?

I'm hoping to get all invites sent tonight - i've been away this weekend, and was due to travel to Glasgow friday night on the sleeper - but unfortunately due to the crash near oxenholme, i got a train to leeds, stayed 2 hours there (my earliest ever mcdonalds - 3:30AM!) and then got a train to glasgow from doncaster. and i'm currently writing this using the wi-fi on a GNER train near edinburgh, going home

The quiz is going to be 100% in the chat room isn't it?

I might have to join in, as I like quizzes, but depends on how busy things are

You can make your own chat rooms by the way.

This is where I found ducky's and you can pay to upgrade which will remove the ads:

Am still deciding whether or not to post the q's in a new thread or in a chatroom - only prob with chatroom is with people saying so mcuh, questions might get missed etc.

i'm starting to send out invites now - so if you've applied, you'll be getting yours very soon :thumbsup:

When do you want PMs by? Not sure if I will be up to this on thursday, depends on how I am doing healthwise (and whether or not they keep me in hospital on monday)

Dont want to PM and then not turn up...

I'm available for PM's up until about 7:30PM on thuursday Julia. You've got plenty of time to make decisions, and i haven't got the questions ready yet :whistling:

If you PM and don't take part, don't worry. There will be many more quizzes in the coming weeks

By the way, GET WELL SOON!!! :friends: :friends:

Ooohhh, well we're starting about 8 - 8:15 start, after eastenders. I'm hoping for 5 rounds (not saying what yet) and around 10 q's per round, so 10 minutes per round, with a 2 min break in between each. I'm hoping that it will last about an hour then. :thumbsup:

Cool good timing too! :thumbsup:

hows it going to be set out? i.e, in chat? a thread?

I'm still not 100% sure. A thread would make more sense, as it cannot be interupted as such. In a chatroom with so many people posting questions could be missed etc.

emma's bingo worked well in a thread, with everybody discussing in the chatroom, so might have to post the q's in a thread.

good idea, where will players post their answers?

I'm still deciding on rules, but if players post their answers in the live chat, other players might get it and win quicker etc.

I was thinking that once you think you have all correct answers, you can PM them to me. But you can only PM me once with them, otherwise you will be void. The player with the most correct answers wins etc.

Or, if you want PM me again, if you think you may have got some wrong, you can, BUT with a maximum of three corrections or something. :?

gonna take you forever to check 50 questions if theres a few players lol! good luck!

I know! Might have to trim it down a bit, or announce the winner on friday night. Add to he bargain i don't get home from school until 16:30, sifting through the answers will take a bit of time. Ah well! The time i've saved sitting here ordering cheaper things than going out to buy them more than makes up for it.

Then again, i've only got 8 players at the mo, so it might be quite easy! :giggle:

If you do get a lot of players and don't need the answers to be sorted straight away forward the answers and some of the personal messages this way. I won't be playing anyway. Is there going to be a prize?

well maybe 5 questions in each category? 25 questions should be easier for you, another idea may be to avoid questions that could have any variant to the answers, having a clear short answer will make it quicker for you to check them

Good idea. Short, sharp answers was what i was going for, rather than something like: 1) explain darwin's theory of evolution. AAHHHH!!! :w00t:

Or, slightly different, you post the question in the thread...then the 1st person in it to post the right answer gets the mark...lol i dont know what i mean, dunno if you do...

thats a good idea too, it would save trawling through loads of answer lists,and show a clear winner, ie first post in the thread with the answer! though it may cause havoc to the server, another idea could be, write the question in the chatroom and first to post the answer in the thread? would save some refreshing constantly to see if a question had been posted?? yet still show the first to post

Had a few beers last night? :giggle: :giggle:

No, seriously, that's a good idea. But if people post at the same time (not minutes but seconds), arguments could start like "oh, i posted first though" etc...

And methinks admin won't be too happy if the server chrashes AGAIN lol

well i think the final call could be simply which post was first on the board

When emma did the bingo, she posted it as a hot deal and lept it locked. Do you think we could do this, to promote the interest for the site and the quiz?

Emma left it till the last minute to put in hot deals as it wasnt technically a deal, birdyboy tried to post it earlier i think and it was removed, maybe they will sticky it instead? worth asking i guess

Will do - what mods are about?

I got a mention! lol

If the quiz was to take place in chat room, the winner of that question would be fastest finger first. The first person to type the answer, gets that point.
Also, if you have number questions, the answer has to be typed. i.e Bakers dozen = 13, you would have to type the answer - thirteen.
You get me?? :? Hope im making sense!

If it was to take place in forum, too much overload I could imagine on servers?? I dunno....

HTH anyway! :thumbsup:
Thanks for organising all this too emasu!:thumbsup: :thumbsup:

I was looking at the chatroom way of doing it, but it is largely open to spammers and people who aren't registered to play could post the answer -- wrecking it for everyone else. I know this could happen on the thread, but you can easily find the questions as they will be in bold.

maybe each player could have their reply box ready,the questions posted in the chat room, but answers written in the thread box, but dont submit the posttill the end of the quiz, ie list 1-25 say with your answer next to them, everyone submit at the end of the quiz, then lock the thread so no editing,untill the results can be posted, is someone ruins it by posting the answers in chat, everyone can put them on ignore?
