Milescity.com Trivia Game

First off, for those that are unaware, several members of this site participate in a daily trivia quiz. It's 10 questions, typically takes less than 2 minutes, and is a fun way to compete with your fellow board members on a daily basis. Participation is down a bit lately, and it would be great to have some new blood there:

Secondly, I have personally not played in a while and have generally been a lousy administrator. I think that it would be appropriate for someone that is still active over there to take over the admin role, which involves choosing the categories and difficulty levels of the quizzes as well as dealing with the occasional cheaters. I always tried to get feedback from the users to see what they wanted to do and change it up from time to time but obviously I have not done this in quite some time.

Ideally the admin would be someone like I used to be that plays daily but is not one of the top contenders. However, I will hand it over to whoever the regular players would like to be in charge.

Please post your thoughts and if you haven't played in a while or are not aware of the game, go check it out.

Levi, you should play more often and find a new category for Friday. With slacking attendance, I have had better standings, imagine that! Did Bridgier get banned?

Please keep the Friday category. I need to beat Wendy and Gunnar at least once a week.

I appreciate the vote of confidence, but you guys have pretty low standards since I've been to the site about 3 times in the last 5 months. If you wish to continue this level of neglect I can oblige you, but if someone else wants to run it I would happily turn it over. There is a mechanism on the site to transfer admin powers without any new accounts or passwords or anything required.

And if Bridgier got banned it wasn't by me.

Play this game! If more people don't start to play, I'll start believing I am smarter than Bridgier.

I'm claiming 10 today, that answer to that last question WAS NOT ACCURATE.

My giant brain has been rejuvenated. THREE-PETE! I have won the last three days in a row.

http://www.funtrivia.com/...?tid=95583

Will I win again today*, for FOUR IN A ROW??!!??? Or will some other savant from the greater MC area turn up on top??? Stay tuned.

*I better win today, for tomorrow is Religion, and I suck at that category. Of course, tomorrow is the end of the world, too.

Well Gunnar, while you are focused on winning a trivia game, the rest of us are living our last day before the apocalypse to the fullest. I'm robbing gas stations and grocery stores. That's way better than a four-pete.

10 out of 10 in 48 seconds and I am only half awake. Apparently, I guess better when almost unconscious because I know nothing about boy bands or the Facts of Life tv show.

Unlike you, apparently, I am not that into cougars. Blair and Jo are my age. Much older than you.

Gunnar your mom is thinking four-pete sakes. Congrats on your accomplishment! To bad it won't be five in a row.

So how many months in a row have you pulled off Gunnar?
Top
supporter
Posted by Gunnar Emilsson (+9863) 4 years ago
Months in a row? I do believe it is the first time, ever, Bridgier, that anyone has scored a 4-PT on a daily basis.

Even when you were playing regularly. If you had been playing lately, I suspect my sister would not win MONTH AFTER MONTH (hint, hint).

And, as icing on the cake, my dreaded rival in speed, benjamaniac, TIED ME after my boastful boast, but as all long time players know, ties mean 2nd place.

Boo yah! Doodlepink, go sniff some tax form inhaler. B-9 junior, go measure some Daubenmire plots. I rule!

Dearest Snuggle-bunny,

I'm so happy you are getting such joy from this minor, albeit entertaining, distraction. It must have been hard to growing up in the shadow of your little sister's brilliance. No one begrudges you your small victories now.

Kisses,

Mrsdoodlepunk

Good time to remind everyone that the Milescity.com trivia game has started for another month. A lot of great players, but the goal is not to win, just have fun.

Hope to see you all there. Link above still is working.
