    Today (26/07/09), I will be holding a general knowledge quiz during chat.

    The quiz will start at 5:00pm BST (11:00am CST) and should last no longer than an hour. The quiz will take place in the dedicated quiz chat room. All interested members are invited to join and/or participate in the contest. Simply by joining the room, you are eligible to participate in the quiz. You may join and leave at any time.

    Rules

    1. The quiz is purely for fun, anyone taking it too seriously will be banned :tongue:

    2. The FIRST member to answer the question correctly as determined by what is displayed on the chat screen will receive 1 point. The quiz moderator will acknowledge the answer by saying "{PFmember} correct", where PFmember is the member's PF username.

    3. The moderator's decision and point allocation is final.

    4. Members in the chat room are asked to not carry any conversation other than answering the question, or seeking clarification during each round. There will be a break between each round where members may seek clarification on any answer that was given during the previous round. However, points will not be reallocated.

    5. There will be a time limit of approximately 1 minute after the question is asked. If no correct answer is given, the answer will be revealed and the next question will be asked.

    6. If a member gives multiple answers to a question, only the first answer will be taken into account.

    7. Members should use white font only, with no decorations (such as bold, italics or underlining).

    Categories

    There will be three rounds, each with a different theme.

    Round One: General Knowledge - pretty self explanatory.

    Round Two: Whose line - each question will consist of a line from a film/book/TV show, one point will be awarded to the first user who correctly gives both the name of the person who said it (i.e. the character) and the name of the film/book/TV show. Partial points will not be awarded.

    Round Three: Music Round - A round dedicated to everything about music

    Bonus Round: At the end of the quiz there will be a bonus round. The "questions" will be posted in this thread after the final round and entries to be submitted via PM to me. The first PM I receive with all the correct answers will be declared the winner!

    I'm almost hoping for bad weather, so I have an excuse to slack off and hang in chat.

    Probably no need to hope. We have had three months of very cold wet weather, and that does not seem poised to break any time soon.

    As you can see, grammar has never been my strong point.

    Just posting a reminder about tomorrow's quiz. Round three has now been designated as a Music round and I've added a bonus round at the end of the quiz.

    See you all tomorrow!

    Quiz next Sunday 11:00am CST (17:00 BST)

    Following last week's quiz, there will be another quiz this coming Sunday (02/08/09) at the same time and at the same place.

    Categories

    There will be three rounds, each with a different theme. No bonus round this week.

    Round One: General Knowledge - pretty self explanatory.

    Round Two: Whose line - each question will consist of a line from a film/book/TV show/song, one point will be awarded to the first user who correctly gives both the name of the person who said it (i.e. the character or singer) and the name of the film/book/TV show/song. Partial points will not be awarded.

    Round Three: Everything Physics Forums - A round dedicated to everything about Physics Forums

    Notice that the Whose line round now includes lines from songs. Look forward to seeing you all there on Sunday :smile:

    Re: Live quiz

    It's meant to be more of a fun run, or at least it will be when I've written the questions ...
    Indeed, I did - duly corrected. One of these days I'm going to make a post without a mistake in it! :rolleyes:

    Re: Live quiz Tomorrow

    Just a quick reminder about tomorrow's quiz, which will take place at 11:00am CST (5:00pm BST) in the dedicated chat room.

    There is a small change to the rules: The time limit will be reduced to 30 seconds in an effort to combat 'googling'.

    Rules

    1. The quiz is purely for fun, anyone taking it too seriously will be banned :tongue:

    2. The FIRST member to answer the question correctly as determined by what is displayed on the chat screen will receive 1 point. The quiz moderator will acknowledge the answer by saying "{PFmember} correct", where PFmember is the member's PF username.

    3. The moderator's decision and point allocation is final.

    4. Members in the chat room are asked to not carry any conversation other than answering the question, or seeking clarification during each round. There will be a break between each round where members may seek clarification on any answer that was given during the previous round. However, points will not be reallocated.

    5. There will be a time limit of approximately 30 seconds after the question is asked. If no correct answer is given, the answer will be revealed and the next question will be asked.

    6. If a member gives multiple answers to a question, only the first answer will be taken into account.

    7. Members should use white font only, with no decorations (such as bold, italics or underlining).

    Round Three: Everything Physics Forums - A round dedicated to everything about Physics Forums

    If there is a tie for first place at the end of this weeks quiz, there will be tie-break question at the end of the quiz.

    Re: Live quiz Tomorrow

    If you're going to increase the time pressure, it might be more fair to allow each person to submit multiple answers, as there's always a balance between the pressure to answer quickly and the knowledge that you only get one shot, and this works differently for different people, distorting the results. (Also, in the last quiz I accidentally caught the enter key when going for the backspace key and entered something that wasn't even a word).

    Alternatively, you could run each question in two 30-second stages, where each person gets one shot in the first stage, then if no-one has got it you send a brief message after which people can try again repeatedly in the second stage (having had time to do further research in the mean time). Getting the answer in the first stage would count for more points.

    Personally, I think that being able to find things rapidly via "googling" and similar is also a valuable skill, nearly as good as knowing them in the first place. I don't think people are likely to "google" the answer quickly enough to beat anyone who knows the answer already. Obviously, there are cases where the googling process is trivial in which case the speed is mainly a measure of cut and paste skills, but as some of us know from the "Landmarks" thread, it can involve a lot of ingenuity. For many questions, the quiz already tests typing speed, so testing googling speed doesn't seem very different to me.

    (I don't yet know whether I'll be able to make it for this quiz anyway; if there are traffic problems on the way to Cornwall I'll still be on the road).
