    Another quiz??

    It appears that many people in chat really enjoyed last times trivia. So perhaps we should have another one next sunday??

    I'll take care of the questions and all the practical stuff, I just need somebody else who keeps the scores and who copies the chat (evo??).

    Tell me if people are interested.

    Another quiz sounds like an excellent idea! Unfortunately, I can't commit to helping out right now, but I'll get back to you by the end of the week. In any case, I'm sure Evo will be happy to pitch in.

    Another quiz would be fun. Hopefully, no negative 2's this time.

    Yes, I think that rather messed things up last time.

    Yay!! LOL! It did seem like fun even though I had to leave right after the first question...I hope it doesn't happen again.

    I can keep the score, and copying chat is not necessary - it is automatically logged by the system.

    Unless you mean something completely different.

    I would like to participate again. And I am happy to take a turn of being question master if that is something others are happy with. I don't think I would quite as good as Hootenanny at designing questions that draw contestants into supplying the wrong answer, but I think I could come up with a balanced, culturally neutral set of questions. Nothing too Britishy, like the original Doctor Who.

    That would be great. Just let us know which Sunday and what time.

    Now that we have access to the chat logs, it's much easier, thanks to Borek for testing it.

    Can it be an hour earlier? Or will it be too early for some?

    Re: Another quiz??

    That's ok for me, I was just basing myself on the times of previous trivia.
    I'll post the complete details soon.

    Yay yay yay!

    And an hour earlier would be great! Just in case I have to run someone to the ER again... :rolleyes: I would have made it to the last game if it had been an hour earlier.

    There will be two rounds: Science and General Knowledge.

    The loser gets slapped in the face with a fish, the size of which is determined by the winner!

    All welcome

    Tonight?

    How did I miss this?

    And use real time, we operate on CST. Don't use imaginary time zones. :grumpy: 20:00 GMT? That was 2 1/2 hours ago. I am sooo confused.

    Micro, can you give some details about number of parts and questions? I will prepare a spreadsheet similar to the one I used last time, it will be easier to keep track of scores.

    And you will have to announce who gets points after each question.

    Re: Another quiz??

    There will be 2 parts: Science and General Knowledge. Each part will consist of 10 questions.

    If all goes well, we should be ready in about an hour...
