Proposing changes to the Newsfix daily quiz

Post by >THE Ben Reilly< on Sat Jan 09, 2016 11:15 pm

Some of the categories are kind of an ass-beating -- Geography has been mentioned, and everyone knows I hate the UK topic because I'm so bad at it Smile

Would we support changing up the categories? They've been the same for a long time now anyway, it might be fun to shake it up a bit.

I'd be willing to give up Celebrities (which I'm great at) in exchange for giving up UK -- then we could add something along the lines of Movies, Music, World Trivia, People or Sports in exchange for kicking out Geography (or at least lowering the difficulty level).

Wandered off and found the 'PASSWORD' in a way far off place!

Post by Guest on Thu Feb 18, 2016 2:08 am

I went over to the 'Daily Quiz' but it won't allow me to establish a name/login --- it's telling me I need the NewsFix 'PASSWORD' for this locked game site?

Anyone want to give that up or place it inside the logon box for everyone to be able to access the Daily Quiz???

Trivia tournament now requires a password

.... thanks to Phil, who's been signing up multiple accounts on it with nasty names for me, eddie, HF and VOD.

Password is: skcuslihp (easier to remember backwards)

 For some reason it's not accepting that.   I'll try again. Could be I cut and pasted it.  I'll try typing it in.

Interesting -- my browser includes the option "paste as plain text," I wonder if that's why? I never thought there'd be a difference.

Then why didn't you unstick the stickiness of the sticky thread so that it was not a sticky anymore so that we needn't have a sticky situation? Suspect
