Something like that sounds fun, Leith, if we can pull it off. :-)|

CONGRATULATIONS!!!! To everyone who completed the Sprint -- Great Job! Great adventure and now my brain can rest for a little while.....|

Nice idea Leith ... though I think even ratings can be skewered by a writer who is a member of a large team happy to support them with a string of excellent ratings|

How many quizzes are we still waiting for? Just curious.|
Reply #1224. Aug 06 12, 2:47 PM
Counting from the Synopsis, one 11th round and two 12th round entries.|

You are right pollucci, but if you look at a lot of the large teams they often have a fairly small number of active members in comparison to the total membership, whereas small teams have mainly active members, so I think support from your team would pretty much even out across the quiz authors participating.|

I think the greater problem would be the possibility of people actually down-rating a rival team's quiz. While most players on FT would never do this, even a small minority using "Very Poor" ratings can quickly put what should be a Sunnies quiz into the lower half.|

Oh my stars what a lousy thing to do!|

Sorry for being one of the stragglers. WOrking on my last two quizzes. Hope to be off the list by the weekend.|

Did my partner post that our 12th quiz is online?|

Ahem... Rossian is not a him, she's a her. :-)|

Well done by the way, rossian. Although, in my own twisted mind, I beat you by 10 hours. Dang first leg when I didn't know I was competing.|
Sigh. Whatchya gonna do?
Thanks so much for the stats, wes. And thanks to Wes and Kyle for an awesome sprint. I would like another; this one I will do my best to win. :-P
It'd be fun to make the clues too. I bet you guys had a blast. :-)

Yeah Salami, watcha gonna do? Without an accidental mishap on Task 2, my time probably could've been in the top 5. |
Oh well, I'm still proud finishing in 9th :)
Congrats to all the finishers and great job to rossian for finishing first!

Yes, but I'm 18th because of my unknowingly in the race for 5 days 3 hours.|
Lol. I'm glad there are no prizes... But I did get some excellent quizzes out of this. :-P I loved the sprint!
Reply #1234. Aug 08 12, 8:07 PM
Wes, can you please re-check the last round's time for our team? I wrote the quiz and it took me around 2 hours. Definitely not the 13 hours it shows as our latest time. Or have I misunderstood the table?|
Reply #1235. Aug 08 12, 9:51 PM
So I missed the 24 hour achievement by only 13 minutes! I had a feeling I'd taken just too long.|
Well done on managing all three bonuses, Wes.
Salami - dream on. As they say, just look at the tables - they miss out all the hard luck stories.
Thanks again to Wes and Kyle for the challenges. Most of them were fun, but not all. And to confirm, Wes - I am female, not male.

Whoops on the gender... thankfully we don't have separate men's and ladies' competitions out here or I'd always mess that up :) |
Reply #1237. Aug 09 12, 1:51 AM
Can you recheck my time for the last quiz? I really don't believe I spent 15 hours on it - more like 2-3hours (according to the template) from when I set up the template, and that was certainly no more that an hour or so after I clicked the clues before I decided on my focus. |
Congratulations to all who have finished, and please stop asking them to do this again. I would rather see a different fiendish challenge than repeat this, interesting as it has been.

...and well, zorba_scank is right which kind of messes up the entire winner's table up there. |
Kyle: 12:09 am translates to 0:09, not 12:09 :)
