Just submitted Quiz #7 -- "Unlucky in Love..." :) Sounds like a title for my life *grins*|

You wouldn't think that the Two Wizards of FT are planning something like the Amazing Quiz Race using the quizzes written for the Sprint, would you???? Something along the lines of the Amazing Quiz Sprint?|
There certainly are a great deal of very good quizzes that have been written...and maybe the fish will be a badgelet there, too, for those who didn't get it before?
Curious minds are wondering...

Just about to click on the hint thread, and learn what dire fate lies ahead. Saturday afternoon is quiz-writing time! (And, since this is a long weekend, I will get at least one more this week.)|

The luxury of a three-day weekend (thanks to QEII for having an arbitrarily-celebrated birthday down here) means that I have completed one clue, but will see if I can do the other one more rapidly tomorrow. Fancy having two days in a row to in which I can allocate a significant chunk of time to quiz-writing!|

Are #6 and #7 going to be combined into a big standings? Or are the #6 standings coming soon?|
Reply #828. Jun 09 12, 7:41 AM
The standings for task 6 have been sent to Wes; it's up to him.|

As an avowed republican, I still thank Queen Elizabeth II for this long weekend in Australia, that has allowed me to finally submit my TV-based quiz for Sprint 7!|

It's Prince Philip's real birthday today as well, Mike, I think.|
I don't see the need to break with tradition, without a particularly good reason for doing so. You'd want Julia Gillard as a the first President of an Australian Republic??
Besides, there's the Comonwealth Games you know :)
Reply #831. Jun 09 12, 10:54 PM
This is probably (definitely!) not the forum to debate whether Australia should be a republic, but you make an excellent point about the Commonwealth Games, Creedy! Too much sport of this kind is never enough... |

The 6th round raw scores have been released at http://www.krath.org/sprint-06.png|
I still don't have the official finals of the 5th, so no update there yet.
Mariamir/shuehorn: You will be taking a 7 day score either way for round 5, but if either of you will still do my 5th round task, you may save yourselves some Rvsn points - Mariamir's is currently sitting at 2 Rvsn and submitted for the 3rd time.
No changes on the leaderboard:
Normal Single: Rowena8482 with 8h 36m
HC Single: WesleyCrusher with 9h 22m
Normal Pairs: Lones95/zorba_scank with 12h 50m
Fastest Lap: looney_tunes #5 at 0h 26m. Best time this round goes to rossian at 42 mins.

Thanks for the advice, Wes. I have a task five quiz started. I will finish it tonight. :)|

Wes, weren't the time bonuses for those who missed them first time round supposed to be allocated on leg 6? Mine doesn't seem to be there, and I think Rowena and Creedy both missed out first time round as well, and it doesn't look like theirs are there either (there were others as well but I can't remember them)|
Reply #835. Jun 10 12, 5:12 PM
I was also expecting my 30 minute bonus this round, since I used a Challenge title, and hadn't been told about the first opportunity until after I had submitted my quiz.|
Reply #836. Jun 10 12, 6:34 PM
Wow! Wes has must taken nearly 20 years off my life. I'm now Lones95 instead of Lones78 :)|
Not sure whether I'm old enough yet Wes to thank you for that!
Reply #837. Jun 10 12, 8:52 PM
I can't tell if my bonus time was accounted for or not. :-P only 30 minutes though... Not a big deal considering I'm 5 days behind. Lol|
Reply #838. Jun 10 12, 11:30 PM
Just curious Wes, I timed myself from click to submit and got around 4 and half hours. How did we get 16 hrs? Did we click without realising?|
Reply #839. Jun 10 12, 11:47 PM
I didn't get anything from Kyle on who should receive the challenge bonuses - sorry, guys. |
As to leith - I have you (yourself, not mlc) as clicked on June 1, 20:17 which would make 16 hours.
