Having a conscience can have its disadvantages...it shows how evil a company really is.

I have provisionally retired playing Word Wizard this year. I got both word making badges and then made up my rating and can now relax for a while.

What are the chances of not just getting the same answer to a totally different question in a mixed quiz (pot of gold) but in consecutive questions, as I just did. I'll edit it in tomorrow once it's no longer live.

It used to be that you couldn't create a quiz until you had played a fair number, possibly 50 or 100, and you needed to have been a member for about a month.

Why?

If someone writes a quiz but has only been on FT a week and taken 10 quizzes isn't it up to the editor to decide if the quiz is up to FunTrivia standards?

I had no idea the experience required before making your first quiz had been reduced, I thought you needed to see the format of quizzes and become familiar with the site generally. It doesn't take long to play 50 quizzes either.

It changed many years ago David. I tend to agree with you, playing all the quiz tune up quizzes quickly got a person through the necessary number of quizzes and also gave the new quiz writer a good idea of how to write a quiz which would require little or no changes before going online.

I have to say it somewhere, I just got a reply and a retweet from Roseanne Barr on Twitter!

I love the internet, it's the one place everyone talks to each other regardless who they are.

Today is my 17th anniversary here, the first website I joined when I got home internet. Almost a third of my life.

I'll hit 16 next week on the other side.

In other news, our dog passed away last night at the age of 14.

I'm a newbie. Just shy of 10 years.

My condolences, Dave.

I just started word wizard on my phone and found there was no internet coverage. Once there was I got 15/15 in 45 minutes.
