Is it possible to be an active member of more than one Team, please?

I am a member of a Medium Team, so wondered if I could also join a Small Team as well.

No you cannot. One person one team and whatever you do, do not create a second account so as to belong to more than one team.

Why would someone want to be part of more than one team?

The remarks was because we have had some people do just that and they then lose both accounts.

If you want to join another team, you first have to remove yourself from the team you are in.

I enjoy playing the Team Games as well as those on my Team's Message board..

As the only British member of a mostly American Team, I come into my own in the occasional quizzes on Europe. I do well on other topics too occasionally.

You are supposed to choose one team and dedicate yourself to it. It's like if you were a baseball player - you can't play for some Major League team but practice with the triple-A affiliate of another at the same time smile

Thanks for asking that question zippolover. I had often wondered about that myself just out of curiosity! smile

As a Brit, I know nothing about baseball, but the analogy seems wrong to me as we Brits believe in helping others lower down the scale.

I asked the question, did not act upon it and have now been accused of attempting to cheat. Not my idea of fun. The longer I stay here, the less I like it.

I don't think anyone here is accusing you of attempting to cheat. Some are warning you aganist that, but that's so you don't do something aganist the FunTrivia rules.

If you feel that I was accusing you then I apologise, it was a friendly warning, not only to yourself but to others too who might be wondering exactly the same thing. We have had people who create second accounts, not to cheat but in order to belong to two teams, the result is that both accounts are at risk, not just the additional account.

I apologise if you think that I was accusing you, that was far from my intention.

Thank you.

I have a daughter who is a member here, so posts from the same location. She usually stays away so as not to be confused with me.

You should know that many team's Private tourneys are open to people from other teams. To join those other games politely you could ask the host member if it would be okay to do so. Some teams want to be closed while others like the openness of sharing the tourney chat board with other people. This won't give you access to the full team area, just the private tourney.

Thank you, mehaul. Perhaps I could go back to the Private Tournaments. That was where I started off.

Why not do both? smile
For instance, you could remain with the team you are on, and play the Regal Beagles' private tournament.

Also, you might want to consider changing teams, to see what suits you best. There are teams both larger and smaller than the one you are on. There are also many teams that are international, and a few British-based teams. It is not unusual for people to switch teams, to find the right fit.

The only advantage, as I see it, to changing teams is that the other members would have similar schedules to me so that we would be around at the same time. I do not want to change teams though and the only Private quiz that I play on a regular basis is that of a rival team.
