The Online Quiz
Four weeks completed and JiltedJohn still leads the way but closely chased by DaveBill, frankh and paulbarber who are all in joint second place with 39 points and two of them doing unassisted! We’re watching you! There is also a two-way tie for third place five-way tie for third as well with 28 points. At the end of last week only five points separated the top 19 players. The person in 92nd place was A79MOD.
Week five is up and running and let’s hop off to Japan.
In this league, each week will feature a different country, just like league 27, but different countries from before. Only the EVEN numbered questions will be connected with that country, the odd numbers will be the usual mixture of pop music trivia including one true or false question and at least one audio and visual question. The pre-picked number for this league will be 92.
I’m still looking for more suggestions for a Single of the Week so if there is a song you’ve always wondered about, who wrote it, what it’s about etc etc. You suggest it and I’ll write about it. Please submit your suggestions via the contact me tab.
As always all you have to do is remember to do it EVERY week and if you have a tendency to forget, just set up the free reminder.
It’s easy, just log in, go to change account details, click ‘yes’ for the reminder and set the day and time you would like to be reminded and just remember to click ‘change reminder setting’ once you’ve done it. If you’ve already the quiz before the reminder is due then it will NOT send you the reminder. It will already know you’ve done it.
If there is something you would like me to cover on the ‘Did You Know’ feature, please let me know too. Please make your suggestions via return email or contacting me through the website. Go on, have a think, there must be one!
The quiz runs from midday Sunday until 11am the following Sunday.
The age range of the people who do the quiz is so varied with the youngest person (that I know of) being 12 and the oldest (that I know of) being 85.
If you wish to change your username, email address and/or password there is now the facility for everyone to change their details by clicking ‘change account details’ but don’t forget to save changes afterwards.
The rules for those doing it for the first time are: there are three minutes to do the quiz. If you navigate away from the page or click back it will give you a zero score and cannot be reset. You need to do at least 11 of the 12 weeks to qualify for the random pre-picked position. Whoever is in that position at the end of the league will receive an extra prize. If that person hasn’t done 11 or more weeks then I’ll go one below and then one above until I find someone who has done 11+ weeks. If you get a problem with the quiz, ie losing internet connection and the like, please contact me.
In 28 leagues there have been 12 different winners, can you make it into this elite group?
