Re: Accywebbers Daily Trivia quiz Comp!!!

You'd have to get in touch with Stanleymad as the quizmaster to see about any changes.

As the saying goes "a change is as good as a rest"

We were up to 15 regulars at one point -shame to have lost some people along the way...hopefully it's just temporary.

Just one question - why do you change your avatar so often?

Re: Accywebbers Daily Trivia quiz Comp!!!

Get fed up easily i suppose!

Usually reflects something I've been reading, listening to or just my mood which changes a lot...

Currently Lucy Honeychurch and George Emerson (Room with a View) -representing romance and love -am re-reading some of my own writing at the moment and DHLawrence also figures in it, hence the quote...

Makes sense to me anyway, Sue!

Just looking at the quizzes on offer in the open section of the funtrivia site there are subjects such as literature, world, humanities, religion, hobbies (mainly food and drink), science, and several more, at varying levels of difficuty.

Would it be a good idea to find out if we can broaden the scope of our quiz a bit? Interested to know what anyone thinks. We seem to have dropped a few players recently so a fresh look might be a good thing.
I wouldn't mind getting rid of Fun Trivia and General Knowledge - Very Easy. Those two usually turn into speed contests. To be honest I don't mind the others....I've even grown to love Celebrities!!!!

Agree, just think we need more variety.

Re: Accywebbers Daily Trivia quiz Comp!!!

In theory the qiuz host can change the categories evey month, week, or even daily..but I'd say thats asking to much..there's no reason why the host can't be among the players in the quiz.. the host can only set the category, they can't see the questions or answers..having said that there's no way I'd do the job.

Well done - five doggy questions today including your fave lab/agiity one!

At least Junetta has very good reason for leaving the quiz- see her post on the Happy Birthday thread.

Couldn't forget how agile Labs are Sue!

Thanks for pointing out Junetta's post - i knew about her back but she never mentioned losing her husband -how sad. Life can play some nasty tricks at times...
