Right guys and gals, these are the regulations for the `Big Speed Quiz` on Sunday night.
1--This is the thread we will play the quiz on.
2--The quiz will start at 9pm Sunday night, the 18th of December. The questions have been set by me, but Sue as supplied me with 23 of them, which i have inserted into the quiz. I have done my best spread the questions to make it a nice balance. All the questions are about Pans People, Ruby Flipper and Legs & Co.
3--The quiz will contain 60 questions. It will be played in two halves. AT 9pm i will start asking the first set of 30 questions, then at 9.45pm we will have a 15 minute break, basically in order for me to add the scores up. The quiz will re-start at 10pm when i will start on the last 30 question and finish at 10.45pm, the results will be announced at 11pm or before.
4--At 9pm, you will see on your screen the first set of 2 questions. Then at 9.03pm the next set of 2 questions, and so on and so on. Each set of questions will be posted by me in exactly 3 minute intervals.
5--When you see the questions, just answer them as quick as you can. You can either answer them seperatly in two posts, or both together in one post. If you only know the answer to one of the questions, then just answer that one. Remember you only have 3 minutes to answer, any posts past that time will be not accepted for that set of two questions.
6--Your first answers are the only ones i can accept, no post ammending is allowed.
7--Where i have put ("need both"), it means theres two answers to one question, so obviously you need to get both parts right to attain any points.
8--The scoring system is as follows---
Six points for the first fastest answer, 4 points for the 2nd fastest, 3 points for the 3rd fastest, 2 points for the 4th fastest, 1 point for the 5th fastest.
Remember this is for only one of the questions you will see, if for example you are fastest on both sets of questions you will be awarded 12 points. If for example you are 2nd fastest on one question and 4th fastest on the other you will get 6 points (4 and 2). I know it sounds complicated, but dont worry, i will handle all the scoring.
9--**IMPORTANT** Remember its a speed quiz, so in order to stand a chance, you will need to keep refreshing. You wont have to be doing this all night, just on the 3 minute marks, ie--9.00,9.03,9.06,9.09 and so on. I will endevour to post on the alloted time.
Im hoping to get quite a few new players to the quiz, i think you guys might find it helpful if you visited some of our older quizzes weve already had on the forum in order that you can get the feel of how we do things on the quiz. The one thing you will find is its played in good humour, and winning the thing isnt that important. So long as we have fun, i will be happy. If any new players are still unsure of anything, just post on here and i will help you.
