Title: Beau Peep trivia challenge
Post by: Colin on December 17, 2007, 03:55:18 PM
I have set up a general knowledge tester that we can all join (its free) where we can compete with each other each day.
It's just a bit of a laugh but worth a go just to say that you are better than Mince.

Register at http://my.funtrivia.com/private/main.cfm?tid=79189 and happy quizzing.

Mince, can you sticky this at the top of the page for a wee while.

Cheers.

Terry Wogan?

Post by: Vulture on December 17, 2007, 04:54:39 PM
Sorry, Colin. I get confused easily. I have logged on as 'terrywogan' (from another forum). I don't actually understand how it works: do you just get one go a day? 
Title: Re: Beau Peep trivia challenge
Post by: Vulture on December 17, 2007, 04:56:45 PM
Terry Wogan?

Sorry...... he used to wake me up in the mornings so I could take the kids to school. I've loved him since.

Yes Terry, only one go a day and as you can see the categories are there for the whole week.

Typical - she adores the lazy bastard who wouldn't take the kids to school himself, he tapped her on the shoulder and (probably) said "git your ass downstairs roight now, and take them kids to school or ye'll git what fer!!"

Wake up indeed! That's an abusive relationship. You don't have to put up with it.

Embarrassed about knowing so much celebrity trivia, Vult. Parrots blush really bad - especially African Greys.

It's Mince's fault. I had a sentence typed out, then I couldn't work out where the comma went and changed it. I obviously didn't proofread properly.

I don't mind you pointing out my mistakes, Peter, 'coz we oldies understand senior moments. It's when young flibbertigibbets come on with their grand grammatical ways, making me feel as though I'm past it...... well, he'll be old one day....  :D

No, I think it should stay as it is... there's no music category this week (I think!) but just because I don't like music questions, it doesn't mean everybody doesn't. Besides, it gives me something to have a little moan about  ;D!

Not everyone gets the same questions on the same day.
This was copied from the admin page.



Cheat Prevention
It is easy for players to cheat if all players get identical questions each day. They can simply by use multiple accounts or share answers with friends. Our cheat prevention works by giving all players playing in a day slightly differenty questions. Over time, all players will get the same questions, keeping competition fair.
NOTE Cheat prevention does NOT work for custom categories. Please use regular, default categories if you are having problems with cheating in your tournament.

Do you want cheat prevention turned on?

Yes, give all players slightly different questions, if I am using a default category.
No, give all players identical questions.

Thanks, Colin, that explains a lot, not least Tom's reference to "the question about the clarinet ligature", which has so far escaped me.

I'm not sure i wouldn't prefer knowing we all have to face the same questions every day though - surely none of us would even consider attempting to cheat in any way, shape or form? Where's the trust these days?
Title: Re: Beau Peep trivia challenge

Thanks, Colin, that explains a lot, not least Tom's reference to "the question about the clarinet ligature", which has so far escaped me.
Ah... Peter's grand piano question comment now makes sense to me too!  ;D

I feel compelled to point out that having psyched myself up for today's quiz as per normal, around 7 seconds in I was subjected to deliberate and relentless distraction tactics, resulting in me losing an incalculable amount of valuable seconds. I shall leave it at that, save to add that A (certain) Woman was left with mixed feelings of triumph coupled with disappointment that I still managed to get 9 right.

I'd demand a steward's enquiry, but there's no way he's going to get to see what I was subjected to.

Hmph!!! I think the categories themselves are misleading. Anything labelled "easier" really means "pot luck" or "you'll never get all of these" or "don't expect a ten" or "come back tomorrow when the category is easier still" or "do some homework first" or "don't worry it's only a quiz"

I'm proud of my five! So there!!!

I think 'easy' means that the question compiler knew the answers. :-)

I still think the hats and ribbons was wrong yesterday - the way they fixed it made is sound like the women had more than one ribbon on their hat.  ???

Maybe Vulture can put me right on that one as she got 10 right.

I don't remember a hat question in yesterday's quiz. I usually do mine first thing in the morning when I'm not properly awake. Most of my answers are pure guesswork - especially the ones that ask about American things - like 'what's a dime'? Over here, it's a bar of chocolate. And 'who was the lightest president of the USA' - I mean ... who gives a ?

Magnificent, Diane! Thank you so much.

I have to confess I owe a lot to my nearest and dearest for this, showing great understanding despite the pitying looks, as I made certain our week's holiday during this month included 15 minutes internet connection each day (at extortionate rates), purely in order that I could get my daily fix of this infernal quiz.

I dedicate this hard-fought victory to A Woman, who must surely now concede that it was all worth it?  :-\

Thanks for changing the quiz categories, Colin. Personally, I don't think we have enough questions on the hermetic-qabalistic Ancient Initiatory Order of the Rosicrucians myself, hence another dismal score today.

And it appears we may have lost Sam and gained Postman Pat. Shame really - I thought Sam would have stood a real good chance this month, and I was enjoying speaking with him/her...

So, Pat - how's it hangin'?.......

The upshot is that my time taken is shown as 1176 seconds, or 19 minutes 36 seconds! Yes a second exclamation mark! Make that three.

I took the Trivia Challenge today at about 10 o'clock and got 10/10, but when I tried to submit my answers, I got a message saying that they were performing maintenance from 10 to 10.20 Central Time.
The upshot is that my time taken is shown as 1176 seconds, or 19 minutes 36 seconds! Yes a second exclamation mark! Make that three.
Life and quizzes just ain't fair.

Never mind 'you wuz robbed'!!! I took it at 6.30 this morning and got 10! in 83 seconds, and now it isn't there at all!!

I presume it won't let you take it again, Vult, or you'd be up there at the top with about 16 seconds. I think, since you haven't missed a day this month until this glitch occurred, that perhaps Diane and I (the only other ever-presents this month) should magnanimously consider missing tomorrow's quiz in order to restore the balance. Of course, it all hinges on whether Diane is a ruthless BP Quiz addict or not, determined to triumph at all costs (and if she won't do it, I'm b*ggered if I'm going to). What say you, Diane?

Fydo, you're not the first that's happened to (see earlier postings). I think the trick is to try to avoid taking the quiz until after around 11am-noon, UK time, since they seem to routinely perform maintenance at around 10am for about an hour, and if you start just as they are shutting up shop, your seconds will 'carry over'.

This is a serious business, Mince, and I remain to be convinced that you are not indeed postmanpat, aka sam. We're watching you!  ..0

If they want to hide you would think that they would wear a top as well but no just the trousers.
Therefore you can still see the top half if the camouflage works if not why wear them?

There's a new quiz each morning between 6 - 8. There's a list of what each day's quiz is just before the 'play today's game' thingie.

There are an inordinate amount of American based questions - they're the ones I get wrong.

"Literature: Easier"?

More like "Literature: Easy for fans of Stephen King and those Dark Tower books, which are the subjects of 40% of the questions"

Come on, the name of some random bear in a niche series of books... it's hardly a well known pop culture reference.
Title: Re: Beau Peep trivia challenge
Post by: Vulture on August 26, 2008, 06:34:51 AM
I read Stephen King's stuff but I've never read any of the Dark Tower books.

I wouldn't put Stephen King in the 'literature' class - just a 'read this if you want the pants scared off you' class. I would take 'literature' as books that have stood the test of time - Noddy, Jane Eyre, Pride and Pred - I don't think 'It' is mature enough.

I don't like creepy stuff. However I will buy it if my kids want to read it - I bought my eldest (16) a whole cardboard box of just King books - about half are hardcover - some were ex-library but some were donated for the library sale. He got a huge box full for $20.

At sixteen I am glad he is creeping girls out instead of dating them.  ;D

Besides which, wasn't the theory that Postman Pat was just another player taking the quiz under a different name, thus knowing all the answers? I believe all the current players are accounted for on this forum, with no Unknown Mystery People?

It was NOT a criticism, it was the speed, Jack, speed.  I worked out that I waste a lot of time moving the cursor from the question to the side bar, dragging it down then back to the question, read the question, make my choice, back to the sidebar.......

Postman Pat disappeared before I could ask him/her, now you've stayed - tell me how you do it in 41 seconds!!!! What am I doing wrong - the fastest I've managed it was 70   :'(

I have a marble mouse - I just move the ball with middle and/or index finger, use my thumb and little finger for the 'clicking' thingy. It takes a lot less time than actually moving the whole mouse.

Post by: Jack on September 17, 2008, 07:19:07 PM
Well, I'm using a laptop, I suppose I only have to move my finger rather than moving a mouse any distance. Also it's pretty quick to move to the keyboard and back. But mostly it's just trying to be quick but also making sure you've read the question properly.

Didn't do very well today. At least, not compared to everyone else. Turns out I'm not very good at Canadian towns I've never heard of, or the World Cup 6 years before I was born.

Saturday was the harshest quiz I've faced on this thing. I thought I'd guessed well at first, because I had 2 out of the first 3 correct. Alas, it didnt get any better. Ah well, them's the breaks...
Title: Re: Beau Peep trivia challenge
Post by: Malc on December 01, 2008, 03:42:32 PM
I've figured how to play this quiz. The trick is not to be first. That way you can wait until the other suckers contestants have a go, and see if any of the leaders post an 8. If so, when you take your turn you can relax, cogitate, change your mind, etc. It might take 140 seconds for you to to get a 9, but that's still better than an 8 which only took 54 seconds.

I'm anticipating a different atmosphere this month, as contestants all wait until the last minute before taking part. It'll be like bloody eBay.
Title: Re: Beau Peep trivia challenge
Post by: Diane CBPFC on December 01, 2008, 06:29:34 PM
Malc, I was aware that I was having an advantage by playing later than everyone else (not my fault the time difference) I do make a special effort to be the first to play if ever I am up very late (i.e. after 1:00 AM) to try and be fair and make up for this.

Thank you TTIII - always gracious as ever.

Title: Re: Beau Peep trivia challenge
Post by: Malc on December 02, 2008, 12:59:42 AM
Diane, there's no "advantage" to be had due to your geographical location, for instance I can either be first or last, it depends on when I decide to play. I just figured out all too late that sometimes it doesn't help to be first cab off the rank.

Now that I know you lot are all pretty cluey, I can look at the scores and judge how hard the quiz is likely to be that day. That also gives me a clue as to whether I should whizz through it (I might have to get a 10, and have to do it quickly) or whether I can coast a little because no-one got above an 8.

Mind you, I don't ever want to get too competitive, so I'll regularly take my turn as the pigeon.  ;D

To be clear, I do not associate myself with Malc's compulsive "Cheat!" disorder, Zesty - it's just that your observation ranks alongside the stranger who once complained to me at a soiree that he wasn't getting very good miles-per-gallon in his Ferrari.

 :) It's all a bit random because I fluked an 8 in that round not knowing about 6 of the answers and then yesterday the only 2 I had to guess at, I got them wrong.

I get reasonable mpg in my Corsa, but there's a funny noise coming from it when I steer at low speeds. Does that make you feel any better? :)

How come I scored way higher than Zesty on today's trivia, but he got equal points? I realise that he took less time, but he SCORED LESS and I'm sure that's an important factor.

I think the final points aren't allocated until they know exactly how many people took part. The adjustment doesn't take place until the days' competition is closed.

I see that, looking at the scores as they stand presently, but it's the principle! I mean, it's dog eat dog out there in this mean world and you can't go giving free points to your competitors.

Same rules for all, Malc - we all have suffered, but they are consistent. You have to look at it like the equivalent of bad refereeing decisions evening themselves out over a season (yeah, I know that's b*ll*x too).

What's "intself"?
Title: Re: Beau Peep trivia challenge
Post by: Mince on March 05, 2009, 01:46:39 AM
"intself" is a fusion of the words "integer" (whole number) and "itself". Since the choices are alphanumeric, the idea that D) can refer to itself, absurd in itself given the inevitable self-referrential recursion that would occur, is given extra impossible absurdity in the idea that only numerical reference is allowed with alphanumeric sequential itemisation.

I hope that explains things.

Yeah, congratulations on another month of ruthless, naked ambition, Diane - I see you've now added shameless egotism and self-publicity to that, and are already carving up all in your path for this month, even after only four days.

I'd have posted my congratulatory bit of nonsense, as I have done in the past, but quite frankly I'm bored with having to come up with a new twist every time you win, so I've decided it's no more, Mr Nice Guy, and I'm going to stop playing the quiz left-handed and blindfolded. I obviously can't rely on any of these other wasters to do the job for me.

We've already witnessed the extraordinary lengths some people will go to in order to not admit defeat, with Mince's last posting above. But he ain't got nuthin' on you, Lady!

Let battle recommence...

You took 18792 seconds to complete this quiz.
Tonight, just as I was about to start the quiz, someone phoned me, I hung up half an hour later, went to football training, had a chat and a beer afterwards, came home, discussed with my wife the future of our fifteen year-old son and whether his interest in girls is outweighing his interest in football, sat down at the computer, absolutely whizzed through the quiz in a mere few seconds, thought smugly to myself "that'll show Zesty Zmartarse" only to find I had actually started it 5.22 hours ago.

Title: Re: Beau Peep trivia challenge
Post by: Malc on March 27, 2009, 08:17:03 AM
Desperate is me.

I love to experiment and I noticed that even though I had scored more points than Zesty, he was on the same score for the day.

I therefore created a new contestant for the day, deliberately came last and the addition of that contestant gave me the point above Zesty. Weird, eh?

In the interests of fair play I then took part in the next day's quiz as "desperate" and won, therefore giving myself no points as "Malky" which I think evens things up.

I'm now back to being Malky again.

Just thought I'd let you know
Title: Re: Beau Peep trivia challenge
Post by: Zesty White on March 27, 2009, 10:05:56 AM
Yeah the points thing is weird. Because we have so few players, there can be a huge difference in the scores for 1st and 2nd and the same points are awarded. I assume the fact it says top 50 scores of the day, they're expecting less of a score gap between the top two, but I agree that the winner should always score more than everybody else.

Malc, I'm tempted to call you a big fat cheat, but by doing your Desperate2 thing on day one, you only gained a single point of an advantage. By not playing as Malky, on day 2, you cost yourself 4-6 points. So rather than condemn you for cheating, I applaud your curiosity and your scientific approach to you experiment  :)

That apart, the real concern is how Zesty can answer ten questions in 28 seconds. For the non-mathematicians, in a ten question quiz that's a question every 2.8 seconds.

Just say the sentence "bloody cheating bastard" with deliberate venom and you get an idea how little time that actually is. I'm pushing for a stewards enquiry.

Thanks, Diane! Couldn't agree more, especially when I manage to beat you into the bargain. Hopefully you'll manage to compete every day this month - the victory is slightly hollower when it's gained with more days played than anyone else. I toyed briefly with the notion of not playing the last three days to let you catch up, but since I'd built up an unassailable lead by then, I thought it might appear patronisng, rather than sporting, to do so.

Truth - do you punch the air, and hiss the word 'YESSSSS!" when you see those ten green ticks, and the best time so far....or is it just me?

I had a good look through all the questions to make sure they were of a decent standard, and to double check the answers are correct, so that there will be no dispute when the winner is crowned each month. Looking good!

Lucy, we've all been there. I think the record is something along the lines of 27,000 seconds. Commiserations!

Will pass on your best to Sam and the kids, and I'm sure they'll want to return the same. Sadly, we won't be going to the Butlins do, no. Hopefully, we might arrange another 'jam' before then though - Peepsie must be missing my harmonies by now. A reunion of The Blouse Brothers is long overdue...

Don't worry Malc; Now I've played, you have 10 questions right, Calvin has 9, and you deservedly have one more point than he does.

PostmanPat would have done it in 24 seconds.


If you try very hard to be quick, and don't need to stop to think about any of the answers, ~40-50 seconds is doable. Sadly, not knowing the answer immediately causes your brain to automatically re-read the options and have a quick think about it, which adds a surprisingly large number of seconds to your time. I only paused to think about a couple, and my time ended up nearly double Malc's time.

Do you know, in some places, the exact opposite is now the norm. Several years ago, I went to another town (I'll not mention it, in case some guests are from that town ... etc) and visited Woolworth's, when it was there. A woman got herself trapped in the door rushing through it so she didn't have to hold it open for me. I gave her a half smile and went through a different door.

I hope people accept that I am a very fair minded and non sexist type, but one of the bugbears of being associated with womens football is the in-your-face attitude of young lesbians.

Kissing and canoodling in public, especially the mouth to mouth combat sort, isn't acceptable to me. I find it irritating, immature and rude, no matter the gender or sexuality of the couple. What I'm finding is that young tubby women with tattoos seem to think that since the advent of sexual liberation (I'm not sure what date that was, I think I was off sick) normal standards of decorum don't apply to them.

Some clubs in the womens league have become hotspots for lesbians because the nature of the sport means that many of the better players are gay. This is natural, and the way of the world (though it does stop a lot of talented straight girls playing football as women) but the unfortunate impression gained by some ignorant observers is that football 'turns' girls gay, and when they see two young women going at it on the sidelines they act with horror, especially if they knew at least one of them when she was 'normal'.

What the heck?

I just went to answer the questions, got to the end, submitted my answers... and a screen came up saying that "while you were answering, the questions changed". So I went back, and lo, there were 10 different questions to answer.

I answered these new questions, but it seems to have timed from when I started the first lot.

Very bizarre.

So, those of you who played today... did you get the set with the question about who was president in the first world war, or the set with the address of the white house?

I've figured out where I'm going wrong. I am first to post on the competition, which allows the evil Calvin to wait until he sees my score, then he can assess how to approach his session. i.e. if he sees the highest scorer only has 9 points (or 8), he can relax a little more, knowing he can take a valuable extra couple of seconds to answer tricky questions.

Yes, that's it. Evil Calvin, smoking his long cheroot, in his darkened room, surrounded by TV monitors showing the different chambers in his underground bunker, stroking his fluffy cat, sits waiting....waiting.

So I'm posting last from now on.

Diane, I don't know if this will help you to sleep any better, but think of yourself as being a winner anyway, for appearing on the winner's list. Whether in first place, or way down at the bottom... that way it's a lot less pressure. Slightly less competitive, but hey. I'm still a winner from the last time I appeared on the list.

I do remember being number one a while back, but I won't mention that whilst I'm talking about everything being equal.

Don't you just love it when you start the quiz, the credit rating window pops up (wasting precious seconds in closing the same), only to be disturbed by a phone call.  Oops, as I am at work and should be preparing my stuff for the trip to sunny Brussels next week, perhaps I should not do the quiz in work time.
Anyway, as my time was shot, and I stand little chance of beating the likes of Calvin, etc, I pressed buttons at random - and got 6 right.  My aim must be improving, as the last time I tried that I only got 2 right.

Malky,

Being an expert in these matters, why do you get one more point than me (at this moment in time) on the quiz, yet we both have 10/10 (yea!) and the same time.  Yet Tarks, who is 11 seconds slower, get the same points award as me.  For that matter, Calvin has the same time  and correct answers as Tarks, yet gets one less point than him.

I'm confused.  Please help me Obi-wan Malky.

Bil, the scoring system is a bit of a mystery, it's designed for a bigger pool of contestants, as the more players, the more sensible the points spread. I think.

My excuse for not finishing the quiz in 20 seconds is that I use a Wacom pen and it's not as fast as a mouse.

As for Mikey, is he Zesty or is Calvin the old Zesty?
If none of these, where Zesty?

If I even knew the technique being used just to click through the answers so quickly, I reckon I'd save a bit of time.

I can indeed, Jack, but I have to tell you that Postman Pat's IP address does not match any IP address belonging to those currently listed as belonging to Beau Peep board members. It does however match perfectly with the former quiz player known as Sam (presumably Fireman Sam?), who also used to achieve phenomenally fast perfect scores. However, I do not recall Postman Pat and Sam playing the quiz at the same time, so that could just have been a case of having to reregister for some reason. The current Mikey situation is a little different.

Mikey?

Post by: Tarquin Thunderthighs lll on April 21, 2010, 11:54:53 AM
Yeah, that's me, Mincey - bang to rights! Oh, well - in for a penny...

Experiment, Bill? What experiment? For those who have no idea what this is all about, what Bill's experiment consisted of was creating a new identity for the daily Beau Peep Quiz, namely 'Mikey', then having done the quiz under his own name, playing again as Mikey, with the slight added advantage of knowing all of the answers, and therefore getting all of the questions correct in superhuman times. If that's a successful experiment, Bill, then so be it - I have a different name for it. It's also something that any one of us could have done, and doesn't exactly require a degree in rocket science to work out how to do it. Yes, it's only a fun quiz, but it's enjoyed by everyone who participates in it, and I suspect there's a very healthy competitive strand that unites all the players - it ceases to be quite so much fun when someone decides to "experiment" on it, and I wonder just how long this experiment would have run had you not been rumbled?

It's disappointing enough that you chose to do this, Bill, but the manner in which you 'explain' it deepens that disappointment considerably. You've had ample opportunity till now to come up with a decent explanation, and perhaps make light of it all, since I posted my initial 'Mikey' comments on this thread, hoping to tempt you to do so. But rather than do that, you brought Mikey into further action on the quiz, and kept shtum. Then, when you couldn't take the 'experiment' any further, you pick up your ball and go (I'm assuming that's what you meant by "Bye." - although we seem to have heard that before), with a couple of very brief lines, which give the appearance of qualifying your apology by justifying your actions as a 'successful experiment'. I'm sorry, Bill, but that's the kind of childish response that I would never have let any of my children get away with. I'd like a bit more than that, if you please.

There you go, Mince - now your last post makes sense.

Tarquin, I was just winding you up about finding yourself, in the position of admin, having to deal with this.

I agree with what you say.

I would add that the Beau Peep members are notorious for messing around with things - well, I am, with all the jokes we have played on Roger through the board and with private forums - but I guess in those instances I did have others who were in on (and could informally sanction) the joke.

I too would like a little more from Bill. If it was just him being unthinking and stupid, telling us at least would be good.

At least you have access to others away from the general view of the public.  Perhaps I could have messaged before I tried it - but below applies

I too would like a little more from Bill. If it was just him being unthinking and stupid, telling us at least would be good.

That's it exactly - I didn't think at the time, although there was no malice or cheating intended (I did not use 'mikey' then my own login for scoring). 

I do regret having affected the scoring for those two days.

It was wrong to 'experiment' whether one could pose as an anonymous player.  This proves that one can't.  I also wanted to find out how quick the responses could be in reading the question and then knowing the answer.   It was way faster than any of the real top scores.  Whether you believe it or not, the 'experiment' was concluded after the third go.  There was no intention to cheat or claim credit for any score.

There is no decent explanation other than this, but you are probably not interested in my response anyway.  Unthinking and stupid about sums it up.

There seemed little point in elaborating in my previous 'post', but at least Vulture liked the pictures.  The 'Bye' is down to the assumption that I have committed an unforgivable act in doing this 'experiment' and would not be welcome.  I also assumed the login would have been cancelled anyway.

If that's not enough for you, Tarquin, I don't know what else to say.

Quite right, Mincey, but Jack has a point, and under the new emergency rules that kick into force as a result of this incident, I duly declare the the person with the highest score for today is this month's winner, regardless of any further points to be accumulated.

Post by: Tarquin Thunderthighs lll on May 26, 2010, 06:37:21 PM
Aw, Peter had to go and spoil it all. No fiddling - just four tens in 50 seconds in a row.

Actually, since 'Quiz Peter' is patently not the same peter of this parish (his IP address doesn't match anyone's in here, and would indicate a Manchester location), I'm considering banning him altogether from the quiz for the following reasons:

a)  He is not a contributing member of the Beau Peep forums.
b)  He is boringly good at the quiz, and virtually unbeatable.
c)  Because I can.

I'd be happy to hear arguments for or against, while I make up my mind, especially from Peter, should he in fact be a contributing member here under another name, and using a different computer.
Title: Re: Beau Peep trivia challenge
Post by: Jack on May 26, 2010, 06:40:51 PM
And all my pacing efforts were for nothing... :(


Actually no, I did start out counting the seconds to try and time it, but ended up having to think about one of the questions, losing track of the time, and just clicking when done, sure I'd gone over the 50.

When it came up as 50, I assumed that it had glitched, and was giving everyone 50 seconds as the time regardless.

Sadly not.

Post by: Malc on May 27, 2010, 09:27:27 PM
I made a solemn vow not to be the first each day, (it's difficult not to be, seeing as we're the first civilized country to break the dateline , NZ being still populated by ignorant savages),  but when I successfully avoided being the first, I went and forgot to play at all that day.

Being first means your score and time is up there for everyone to see, so if you were Peter and you saw that Malky only got 8 (and took 56 seconds to do  it, and Tarks got 9, (with a 67 second  time) then you can crack your knuckles and relax, knowing that even a 70 second finish will put you in first place if you get 10.

Conversely, if you see that Bilthehut got 10 and only took 50 seconds to do it, you know that the job is very simple - go for it as quick as poss and if you drop a point, too bad. This is why Peter always seems to get that irritating two seconds less than his nearest rival.

My other pathetic excuse is that I use a Wacom pen, which gives me accuracy and control in Photoshop, but not speed in a Trivia quiz. I could connect up a mouse too, but then I would be preparing for the competition and I think that's tantamount to cheating.

I think Peter is Mince in the trivia challenge.

I don't know how sporting it would be to ban someone.

However, if you were going to ban someone, the first of the month would be ideal before they had too much invested in it [looks at Calendar - well lookie here it's the 1st of June]. Just saying.

I think it is very unsporting that we have a quiz player who seemingly isn't interested in being a part of the group that makes up the body of its contestants, and therefore is just a name that collects high scores. I admit that I'd be less concerned were Peter to be languishing at the bottom of the score list, but that isn't for my own sake, since it's been a long time since I was anywhere near the top. I just think that the ambience of the quiz is made by the fact we all know a little of each other through this forum.

However, I don't want to be an out and out meanie, so here's what I'm gonna do. Peter has the rest of this calendar month in which to sign up to this forum (indications are that this Peter isn't even a member here) with the same IP address as he uses for the quiz (i.e. - he uses the same computer - imposter Peter's will not be accepted), and to post at least a couple of messages on the boards to announce his arrival, and intention to 'belong'. If he does this, he stays in the quiz. If he doesn't, he goes.

Fair enough?

Oh Master of the Quiz.  That seems a perfectly logical, fair and downright good egg idea.

Title: Re: Beau Peep trivia challenge
Post by: Tarquin Thunderthighs lll on June 07, 2010, 03:59:45 PM
Nope, can't email him, nor would I. All he is is a name and an IP address. If he's playing the quiz, then he's online. If he's online and he wants to be a part of this happy gang, he'll be looking in. If he's looking in, he can do what is required, or not. I'm not chasing a name.

Tarks, if I was winning the quiz I could see your snark point, but I'm not, I frequently lose (individual rounds and monthly competition) and don't mind contributing, despite that.
 If you're making a unilateral decision to change the nature of a competition which I enjoyed and which has more or less had the same flavour the entire time I've been taking part, I'll dib out, thanks, but don't make it sound like I'm taking my ball and going home. To paraphrase George Costanza, it's not me, it's you.

Oh, come on, Malky! Look at the stats - you've been runner up for the past three months, in the top three for five of the past six months (and fourth for the one you missed). You may not have actually won the quiz in that time, but you aren't doing half badly. I changed the quiz for a couple of days after a complaint (one that had been expressed before) was made about its US bias. Unexpectedly, it seemed to be quite a popular move among some of the regulars, so I prolonged it a little and varied the questions.

Now, it takes me more time to do this, so I'm not desperate to make it a regular event, but if people are enjoying a little variety in this fun quiz for this month, I'm happy to see it through to the end of the month, changing the questions each day (I had thought that I was restricted to the dozen or so categories they allow you to choose from the drop down menu, but yesterday I discovered how to choose from many, many more subjects, hence the Filipino category).

Once the month is up, I shall revert back to set questions for the week (although Colin before me used to vary them from day to to day, albeit as a regular weekly routine, so what I've been doing isn't actually that new). But if this way of doing things proves popular (we may have another poll about it), then I see no reason why it can't happen every now and again.

Apart form any other benefit, it seems to have put Angela's budgie right off his stride.

And no, Malcolm - it's definitely you.

I got 4/10 in the quiz today, and every one of the ten answers I picked was a complete guess.

Additionally, if the quiz is about the Philippines, what was question 8 all about?

Quote
8. In season 1986/87, Dundee United reached the final of the UEFA cup. What was the aggregate score in the final, and who were United's opponents?

I mean, I don't mind guessing things to do with the Philippines, but obscure questions about some football team I've never heard of... that's just silly.

That was the only question I actually knew the answer to, Jack. I've no idea how it crept into the Philippines questions though - the Dundee United questions shouldn't be till tomorrow.

Incidentally, Malky is already well in the lead for this month.

Has someone been messing about?  I know I looked at 10 questions about the Phillipines (or is it Philippines?)(not a Dundee United mention in any of them - not even No 8)

And what happened to Lucy's score - unless she did not post it.  Why is the Peepmaster not participating, seeing as he should know so much of the subject, what with his travel business and all that.

Top 50 Scores So Far Today

    Player                         Award   Correct   Seconds
1. Malky                        + 8 pts       6              66
2. bilthehut                   + 7 pts       5              61

Well, the question actually asked who "United" beat. The fact that it was referring to Dundee Utd was only evident from the question's 'header', the bit written in red above each question that denotes what quiz it was take from.

And what happened to Lucy's score - unless she did not post it.

Lucy is MMCF. She's on the list you posted. Also, Mincypoo is Diane, in case you were wondering.

No, Lucy, it's 'Dundee United'.

Yes, I'm sorry the quiz appears to have changed to Dundee United today. For technical reasons, I had to make the change before the Midnight deadline, which, being an American website, would be in the middle of the night over here, so I made it a short while ago, in the hope that everyone who wanted to play today, had already done so today, and would not therefore be answering questions about Dundee United for Sunday's quiz.

All the questions have been set so that everyone should get the same ones, although there have been some glitches in the past regarding this. I think I have fixed the problem that saw a Dundee United question cropping up in today's quiz, but I do not understand why Bill should not have got that question when it looks like everyone else did.

Anyways, I'm getting a little weary of all this now, so I may well abandon the planned month of varying the questions and go back to a fixed set for every day.

The other option is for someone else to take over running the quiz. It needn't take up too much of anyone's time (unless you want to do what I've been doing this month). Any takers? Perhaps my stint as caretaker manager should come to an end now.
Title: Re: Beau Peep trivia challenge
Post by: Malc on June 14, 2010, 04:25:05 AM
Yes, I do agree with Angry Of Cheltenham's stance on the US-bias questions, but I was prepared to accept the occasional baseball curveball as part of a US-based site.

My peeve is that the quiz represented a wall I was trying to climb, and the enjoyment was in the challenge, even if that challenge was simply trying to fire off answers in a quicker time. Then I turned up at the playground and found the wall dismantled and replaced with a seesaw and monkey bars.
I didn't mind being second or third over the wall, I liked the wall. I don't like monkey bars.

I'm now top of the rankings undeservedly, because it's a lottery and I guessed more than anyone else.
Title: Re: Beau Peep trivia challenge
Post by: Tarquin Thunderthighs lll on June 14, 2010, 08:04:51 AM
Okay, this is all getting too silly now. I've just taken today's quiz, and found the questions were an even mixture of Philippines and Dundee United, and the problem I thought I'd cured seems to now be worse. I was about to change it all back to the old set of questions when I noticed Diane has now also taken the quiz, and so that wouldn't be fair on her, so they stay the way they are for today at least.

Sorry, Malky, but if you think that firing off the answers quicker than any better a test of the player's skill than the past few days, I have to disagree. As you yourself have pointed out in your occasional in-depth analysis of our little fun quiz, even if you know the answer to every question in an instant, your time can be affected by the equipment you're using, the vagaries of the Internet itself, or even distractions from within your own environment.

It is also quite possible to 'learn' almost every answer to a particular category, by spending inordinate amounts of time 'practising' the quiz on the quiz site - as we all know (those who do the quiz regularly) questions are finite, and often repeated. Eventually, you could get to the stage where speed is the only real issue, and I suspect that may be the case with Angela's parakeet since it has almost certainly joined the quiz having looked for 'similar quizzes' on the site, and knows absolutely zip about Beau Peep. In such cases, it ceases to become a lottery and instead becomes a certainty that one player will win every time. For me, a lottery is more fun than that any day (I don't expect a ManU/Celtic fan to necessarily understand that point of view, of course). It's not cheating, but it is a little frustrating, not to say boring, for those who like to play as a fun extension of our happy little club, albeit a competitive one. Varying the questions so that it isn't the same category each time appears to combat that scenario quite well.

Anyway, as I said - I'm happy to have done my stint now. Who wants the reins? Malc?

That question about vegetables today...I didn't even understand the question.

Some people come through with lots of different vegetables, but I only put one number in. This is because they got the food from the 1500.

Your Answer: salad bar
For the salad bar, we have to put in different tare numbers depending on what container the people put the food in. That way the customer isn't charged for the container.

I got the right answer by a calculated guess (my other one would have been 'produce man', which would have been wrong.  I still don't understand what '1500' means.

I have a plan to move up in the standings. I will set up a new competition but not tell Calvin about it. Actually I don't think I will tell anyone else about it then I will win every month. And I will have easy questions and the winner will get Smarties.

Ha - I've been doing that for the last three months, Diane, but my winner gets Maltesers.

I too prefer Maltesers - I have a crappy set-up on my quiz.  :(

I tried to join in again either last month or the month before or the month before.

But the questions were really hard, so I gave up instead.

I haven't played in ages.

Are the questions still looping around like they used to? Because if so, I have no chance against those who've been playing regularly.

(That's my excuse and I'm sticking to it)

My time today was 40472 seconds - the internet went off when I tried this morning so I thougt I would have another go now (when I remembered) - didn't know that the machine was waiting all day for me to come back - now I feel bad for it.

I forgot about this game - but I see others have kept playing all these years  :)

I felt proud that I remembered both my user name and password - that should be worth some bonus points.

It was guess the answers  today, and I got 50% right.  Amazing.

Lil, that was as crushing a blow as it gets! I bow to your mighty quizness! You didn't even need that one.

Was that the day we had the same result but a few seconds between us? You should join us again, Mince.
Fancy there being 55 pages for this thread! Lovely to see the comments from old friends.

I think it was 2 seconds, Lil, and both very fast times. But you were already unassailably in the lead, so it was only ever going to be a minor moral victory for me anyway. 10 out of 10 in (something like) 73 seconds. "Beat that, Lil!" I said to myself, as I metaphorically punched the air. Next time I looked, you had...by two seconds. Crushed!

I can't remember the last time, or even if, Mince took part, Lil ('MinceyPoo' is actually Diane, for reasons best known to her). I think he's chicken, like the rest of them...[steps aside and waits for the Marty McFly Response to kick in]

So sorry Tarqs! I didn't even know I was in the lead because I just compare scores at the end of play each day. Hope this doesn't mean I have to take it more seriously  ;)

Lil, click on the 'Standings' tab near the top of the page, then the 'Hall Of Fame' tab. It'll be pleasant reading for you, and your adrenaline for the quiz will go through the roof!
