Speaking of teams, why is it that names stay on team rosters when a person has moved 3 and 4 times from your team to another team and so on? Isn't there a way to remove those names?

Thanks for the speedy service Wes. Congratulations to the classicalmusic/mensans and the Llamas. Pi are very happy with our third place, but with less than five whole points between the top 3 it's been a tight month.

Wes - my team, Trivia Bubbles, seems to have disappeared from your rankings again. I've gone up and down the list, but can't find us listed anywhere.

Yeah, you were missing from the raw data again for whatever reason.

Your reconstructed ranking is 22nd, at 874.19 (which I will apply to the annual)

It's not caused by you so no need to apologize. Things would only become truly nasty if two of the teams went missing.

I've wondered about this too as it's very confusing to see names in the team list of people who have moved on.

This refers to Iceman's comment above....

And we'll get to the top 50. Virtual bronze trophies go to the teams ranked 21 to 50, as there are:

Code:
21.	v4	Diabolical Devils		10,081.46
22.	^2	The New England Alliance	 9,997.03
23.	^2	Incredible Casuals		 9,922.81
24.	v1	The British			 9,884.09
25.	v4	Heaven's Angels			 9,875.33
26.	^2	Trivia Garden			 9,835.51
27.	^3	Phoenix Rising			 9,710.08
28.	v1	The Bees Knees			 9,683.05
29.	^5	Kindred Spirits			 9,681.54
30.	v4	Almost Angels			 9,640.58
31.	v2	League of Nations		 9,593.90
32.	*	THE CONSERVATIVES		 9,583.55
33.	v2	The Refugees			 9,491.23
34.	v1	Dog Park			 9,481.44
35.	*	Indian Gang			 9,338.77
36.	^1	Triviamanic			 9,233.21
37.	^5	Raised in the Sixties		 9,137.21
38.	v2	The Lost Connection		 9,135.94
39.	*	The Scrambled Eggheads		 9,080.72
40.	v2	The Wild Mutant Noggins		 9,079.40
41.	^5	Quiz Makers Guild		 9,003.92
42.	v2	50+ And Proud Of It		 8,961.73
43.	*	All Right!			 8,957.43
44.	v3	Dynasty Dominators of Death	 8,950.91
45.	v1	Snape's Select			 8,823.01
46.	^1	European Players		 8,792.39
47.	^2	Midwest USA Players		 8,758.03
48.	*	Worldwide Wizards		 8,639.20
49.	NEW	United States of Trivia		 8,473.36
50.	v5	Bikers				 8,442.40


The Diabolical Devils missed the silver trophy range only by 25 points - here are the teams in 11th to 20th who will be proud new owners of such a virtual cup for their equally imaginary team trophy cases:

Code:
11.	^1	The Cat People			10,969.06
12.	v1	Animal Farm			10,837.96
13.	*	Recycled Virgins		10,834.41
14.	^1	Canadian Players		10,684.12
15.	v1	Music Moguls			10,653.99
16.	*	The Devious Demons		10,521.73
17.	^5	Wandering Quizzers		10,195.55
18.	*	The Regal Beagles		10,176.93
19.	*	Trivia Bubbles			10,264.47
20.	*	Calculators			10,106.61


Again, the gap to the grand prizes - imaginary gold trophies in increasingly large sizes for the top 10 - was very small with only sixteen points separating 11th and 10th place.

In 10th place, down from fourth last year but still every bit as opinionated:
Code:
10.	*	The Devil's Advocates		10,985.88

In ninth are 2011's third place finishers:
Code:
9.	v1	Joliettes			11,092.25

Our first new entry in the top ten (and also in the top 50!) is fueled by a certain sparkling yellow liquid:
Code:
8.	^1	The Beeronians			11,096.82

Three places up from 2011, the Clock is still being rocked with great power:
Code:
7.	*	Rock the Clock			11,158.51

As in 2011, "fun" and "win" do not need to be antonyms:
Code:
6.	*	Funsters			11,444.68

No longer an inn to chill, but a competitively and aptly named, successful team takes home the fifth place trophy:
Code:
5.	*	Tesla Coil			11,644.19

The persons of interestingness and knowers of stuff have also returned to the top 10, improving their standing from seventh place:
Code:
4.	*	The Moops			11,745.13

The prize for greatest improvement in 2012 goes to our third place winners - still lingering outside the top 50 for 2011, they shot up to claim a podium spot:
Code:
3.	*	Pi in the Sky			11,787.47

The two top teams have repeated their performance. They have however traded places, so this time Llama power fell just a few points short of repeating the title:
Code:
2.	*	Revenge of the Llamas		11,916.49

Which leaves us with a deserving winner - last year they lost to the Llamas by a mere three points, this year, they struck back and beat them by 46:
Code:
1.	*	classicalmusic/mensan		11,962.69


As it was last year, your prize money - varying amounts of question marks ranging from 5,000 for the unplaced finishers to a cool million for our winners - have already been deposited to your team accounts, waiting to be processed into beautiful questions and quizzes in 2013. You won't have a shortage, so make good use of them!

40th place consolation prize of a heap of ignored spaces, " and 's from the daily challenge assembly line, title sort decision division, will be put to great use. Thanks a heap! Do we have to mount them ourselves or is the plaque in the works?

You'll have to mount them into your quiz templates yourself, but if you're short on those, I have a few dozen lying around that you could use.

Same here on the spaces anyway. Anyone care to acquire them in a trade for a British Railways Station Map?

Thank you for all your hard work in compiling the tables Wes.

As the new leader of the ClassicalMusic/Mensan team, it falls on me to accept this great honour on behalf of the whole team and for Dr Bob who formed the team & brought us all together. He sure can pick 'em! smile
We're very proud to be the Team of the Year on the best trivia site in the world and hope that all the other teams will give us a good fight if we want to hold on to the title in 2013. I'm sure they will.
Congratulations to all the teams who won a virtual trophy, especially the Llamas who made us work for the top spot right to the very end.

Congratulations to the CMMs, very well done. But as we know, it's tough at the top so watch out, there's a Llama behind you! Oh yes there is!

(Sorry, it's still Panto season. wink )

Wes: you're amazing for all the hard work you do (not just for this, but for editing and advice and fun text for the challenges and also because you're way smarter than me but still a nicer/more tactful person. I admire you (and no, I'm not sucking up as it's unlikely I'll be writing any quizzes in your categories anytime soon lol).
Merely appreciation for what you (and all the staff here) do.

Flopsy: You're probably right on the "beware" part lol. Your team is formidable and there is no hope for my personal contributions to count, as I've been told I couldn't win even a under-6 watermelon seed-spitting contest (hangs head in shame). Am particularly looking forward to more picture posts from you in 2013 though, as they have all been lovely in the past.

Anyway, "good going" to ALL the teams! Many have made incredible moves up the ladder, but the main thing is that folks have fun and enjoy the company of their team and friendliness between their competitors. I think the Christmas messages between teams showed that spirit.

Not that I don't LOVE my team, but I converse with more folks (in personal messages) from OTHER teams. They are each fabulous in their own ways. Sure, it's nice that our team won for a change, but I wish everyone lots of laughter and love for 2013. If you have THOSE two items, you can get through pretty much EVERYthing : )))

Sorry for being slightly "mushy". Happy New Year everyone.
