    Question : when anwsers were given by several members at the same time, shouldn't they all get one point ? Or do we know for certain that the answer appearing first was in fact given by the member that pressed SEND first ?

    I remember one instance I was watching and where 2 posts came in one right after the other and the stamp only goes by one minute increments, so even though they may all be stamped the same minute, they actually did come in at slightly different times. The first person wins, if only by a fraction of a second.

    It happened all the time, when answers were separated by less than a second. I guess it might help a wee bit to have a decent high-speed line. Q 13 probably had a half dozen responses, all within a 2 or 3 second window.

    Just noticed Astro's answer to Question # 12 is missing. He did answer by the way. I was there. :biggrin:
     
  13. Jul 14, 2008 #12
    I noticed it seemed a couple posts were missing. Good job though. Did you add the emphasis on questions and answers or did Zapper use a chat tool? That would certainly make a chore of the whole thing.

    On #12, I had highlighted to bold it and it deleted instead. Bu the results were still there.

    Not sure what happened at the end, that was a single copy and paste.

    Hey, if someone wants to copy and paste all of the text next time, they are more than welcome to. :approve:

    Actually, if I had been playing instead of copying , I would have won several questions. Oklahahoma is a favorite of mine and I can sing every song from memory. My mother had the album. I can also sing every song from South Pacific by heart.

    I know that I would have won 1 question. It was the Star Wars one that no one else got. I knew the answers to others, but I fear my typing skills would have been my downfall:grumpy:

    I have an option to "download" the entire flash chat, but due to problems with getting booted, I had the forsight (I am sooo brilliant) to start copying the text every few entries. It's a good thing I did because I did get booted midway and when you re-enter chat, you lose all text prior to when you re-enter.

    So, all of the text was copied into a text format and all code is lost. All of the formatting you see is thanks to Kurdt.

    I wonder if Greg has an easier way?
     
  17. Jul 15, 2008 #16
    Maybe some sort of bot? I wonder if a bot can get booted.
