Sup bitches.

With all of the sporcling going on in the ShoutBox at the moment, I thought we could make a game of it. I will run this for a week to gauge popularity but all I really need to do (hopefully) is sporadically update the OP, it should run itself hopefully!

Well, the poll resulted in a landslide win for Option 2 so the rules will be as follows:

I post the first quiz, after 2 hours, whoever has posted the highest score picks the next quiz and it carries on like that. I would update the OP periodically to try and keep a track of which quizzes have been used and keep Munkiki-like stats on wins and percentages and shiz.

There is only one rule really and it's not exactly enforceable. I ask that you don't cheat on the quizzes because really, what would be the point? Keep it fair and if I get the sense someone is cheating then I will just delete their results and stuff.

I also ask that if you wish to post a screenshot of how you have done, only screenshot the results and not the actual answers because it would spoil it for others yet to complete the quiz!

I love sporcle, so any's good, but I think Option 2 would work better for me, obviously if you don't have to play along every time!

Also, should we hold off voting in case anyone else has an idea?

Ahhh glad to see I am not the only Sporcle geek out there. Option 2 sounds perfect although the 2 hours needs extending.

Was close to putting 6 hours but thought it too long, we can change that though.

Can we start this tonight. That would be great.

I'd suggest 8pm and 10pm starts for the two quizzes if most are sold on option two. Or 7pm and 9pm. Be an interesting table when we've done a few because obviously not everyone will complete in every quiz.

Sup bitches.

With all of the sporcling going on in the ShoutBox at the moment, I thought we could make a game of it. I will run this for a week to gauge popularity but all I really need to do (hopefully) is sporadically update the OP, it should run itself hopefully!

There are a couple of options on how to do this, so I will make this a poll to get your opinions.

Option 1 - We run it like Sheep, where one person runs a season (say 10 quizzes, one at a time) and participants PM the runner of the season a screenshot of their best score. Only allowed to PM the person once or it would get stupid, so make sure you have got the highest score you possibly can before you send it because you won't be allowed to send in a higher one after. Obviously, you have to be trusted not to cheat because then it renders the whole game pointless, and well, what's the point? Seasons could be completed over the course of 3 or 4 days with 6 hour deadlines for each quiz, but that would vary depending on who was running it.

Option 2 - I post the first quiz, after 2 hours, whoever has posted the highest score picks the next quiz and it carries on like that. I would update the OP periodically to try and keep a track of which quizzes have been used and keep Munkiki-like stats on wins and percentages and shiz.

Up to you.

I will close the poll on Friday at 5PM.
Tom, 12 people have voted for Option 2 and no-one has voted for the other option, might as well close it now and get it started this evening

Why would you play Sporcle and not have an account? It means you can keep track of how much time you've wasted on there.
That is exactly why I don't have one :)

Sporcle, the saviour to boring University lectures. Might have to dig out my account and join in. My knowledge only extends to football and geography though..

OP Updated now and poll closed due to a huge landslide win for option 2!

I will have a quick look around Sporcle and post the first quiz in a couple go minutes.

Right, here we go then.

One last thing, obviously whoever gets highest picks the next quiz. So don't be all bitchy and whiny if someone picks a quiz you don't like, if you don't like the choice, wait until the next one, it'll only be a couple of hours anyway!

Also, I will try and make sure the same quiz doesn't get picked too often but I can't make promises I will be around all the time, all quizzes that have been done will be put in the OP though!

Oh, and you can't win twice in a row! You can post your results for your own choice but even if you get highest, you don't win..

Nice easy one to start then...

Quick question mate, when the next quiz ends in 2 hours, how long is it until the next deadline (2 hours would be ridiculous)

No idea, however long you want it be with a maximum of 12 hours (unless it's overnight)

About we say between the hours of 12-7am there can be no deadlines. So if tonight's ends at midnight, the winner can post his quiz but the deadline would be like 12 PM tomorrow or something. I haven't really thought it through that much :fl:

Nah, keep that quiz, but post screenshots up and quickest time wins.
