    Surely that was an error (?) or not a real time because she was just doing it for fun! Congrats golfwidow - that was very fast.
  • craftykiwi
    So do we start posting deal & comments from now for Round 2 or from tomorrow?
  • lilpretzel
    I think they still had me in testing mode from the other day :whistling: Post away Crafty. PLEASE NOTE ALL $$$ AND PRIZES WILL BE GIVEN OUT AT THE END OF THE COMPETITION!
  • nod
    Congrats Golfy and Wally!! Well done
  • Wally
    Wow! Congrats What Next .. Golf Cart Speed Racing!? :cool: :D
  • golfwidow
    H ehe sounds interesting Wally :D Can i just check, that i can't win anymore quizes or i cannot win another first prize? If so if i happen to win another one are my points counted? But i cannot win another prize? Thanks :)
  • craftykiwi
    Pretty sure you can keep competing and winning a first or second prize in the next legs if you qualify by posting another deal and/or comments before each one (but feel free to bow out at any time to give us other slower people a chance). Our points accumulate on the trivia site over the 4 days of the quiz, but Nod & Lilpretzel will announce the winners of each leg as per above, and then those winners and runners up will be the only ones involved in the play off quiz at the end.
  • lilpretzel
    Hey Golfy, You are more than welcome to play again and again but can only take out 2nd place prize sorry. crafty, it's only the winners whom will be playing for the title of "Buckscoop's Biggest Smart A$$" coming 2nd is a placing not a winner sorry.
    [SIZE=2][FONT=Comic Sans MS] We will then have a PLAY OFF between all the winners to find Buckscoop's Biggest Smart A$$[/FONT][/SIZE]
    :)
  • craftykiwi
    Oops, sorry Lilpretzel - didn't realise. Should have re-read the rules again!! No need for you to be sorry - haven't even made it to the winner's podium yet so doesn't matter at this stage. Think I need to be a little quicker (and have fewer distractions) - but is that like a poor workman blaming his tools??
  • golfwidow
    Cool cool. That helps make it better for a few people to win a prize :)

  • Wally
    I just tried logging in at WED 3:20pm but says Game is **CLOSED**!! Tournament is Closed Today Your administrator has disallowed submissions for today. Darn thought I had until 4.00pm :o
  • craftykiwi
    I think Wally the game starts at 3pm EST but by the time you can actually get in to play around 4pm after they have done their 'maintenance' the clock has already started counting down which is why it says it is now closed.
  • Wally
    I understand it was an automated lockout and not done manually - but a whole hour of update/maintenance on their Server!!? But when I checked last night the countdown of hours .. calculated to WED 4.00pm AEST and the announcement of the Competition details says 4PM http://www.buckscoop.com.au/forums/showpost.php?p=50392&postcount=2 Might pay the change/clarify details to say Comp closes 3.00pm AEST from now on :rolleyes:
  • lilpretzel
    So sorry about this Wally, like you I did double check the hours remaining and it was correct at 4pm. I think Buckscoop is cursed when it comes to running competitions, something always stuffs up.

    I think Buckscoop is cursed when it comes to running competitions, something always stuffs up.
    :D - its all part of the fun.
  • craftykiwi
    With 24 hours to do the comp easiest thing is to do it earlier rather than leaving it to the last minute, just in case. Even with the time issue, in the odd case that your internet has a problem then you can ensure you don't miss out. Anyway with 2 more chances to be a winner there's still time to take part and aim for the big prize.
  • nod
    :D So are we 100% sure that the comp now starts at 3pm EST??? These quiz guys are a pain with their time changes
  • craftykiwi
    nod;51523
    :D So are we 100% sure that the comp now starts at 3pm EST??? These quiz guys are a pain with their time changes
    Hard to say Nod. Each time I've logged on there's so called maintenance going on or they're totalling scores from the previous day, and the time until we can play seems to vary each day, even though the time clock starts counting day regardless. I think if you get on anytime between 4pm the first day and 3pm the next day you'd be pretty confident of being able to play OK. And at the end of the day it's all a bit of fun, as Admin says.

    Congrats Crafty and Golfy :) ..... and Leny for scoring the extra ;)
  • Wally
    This International Dateline and Greenwich Meantime has me all confused about this Comp .. methinks!! :geek: I thought the Winner was the person with the Highest score ( ie Most CORRECT Answers) then TIME taken to complete separated the Winner from those who had the same number of questions correct! :thinking: Wasn't Crafty the only one to have 10 correct!?
  • Wally
    And yes it is all a bit of Fun and time to stop my Jibber Jabber but there is more to being a Smart Ass than just answering Questions! :p ... Maybe time for a Break to get Mr T's ]view on how to play the Game!! :D :whistling:
  • golfwidow
    Thanks again. Ill be sitting out the next ones me thinks. I didnt even try the last one. I just really am full of useless information :o Good luck newbies tonight :)

    I thought that too Wally but it's a bit misleading - the rules say the person with the highest score and like you I assumed the person with the most correct, but on this trivia site the highest score is a combination of correct answers and speed, and if you're the quickest then in cases you get a higher score. Maybe we should have named the comp "Fastest Biggest Smart Ass" instead. Don't think I'll ever be quick enough (mulled for far too long last time over the Aussie slang since it's still a bit foreign to me but again made a few lucky guesses) but it's still fun and I love trivia games. Do us 'oldies' play as usual along with the newbies, Lilpretzel? Or is it purely for newbies this time?
  • lilpretzel
    Oldies and newbies Crafty, can't have you guys missing out on the fun :D
    [SIZE=4][FONT=Comic Sans MS] [SIZE=2]T[/SIZE][SIZE=2]he winner is the Buckscooper that has the highest score and the runner up is the Buckscooper that has the 2nd highest score.[/SIZE] [/FONT][/SIZE]
    I assumed it to be the over total for that day not who got the most correct. Maybe I have it all wrong :o let me double check with nod. Poor lilpretzel could be in the dog house again :prop:

    Thanks, assuming I qualify again, I'll be in it. I don't think you're in the dog house Lilpretzel it's just everyone interprets thing differently sometimes and I think Wally and I just 'assumed' highest score meant most correct, not the highest score that has been recorded on the Trivia Game site.

    Thanks - certainly helped that I had to help my daughter with her VCE a few years ago in this particular subject, although initially the 'Intermediate' had me scared.

    Don't worry - it does get easier with each one or depending on how much you know about the topic, even though I've never been as fast as some of the other players. You weren't that much behind me in time for this one so I think you shouldn't be so hard on yourself.:)
  • lilpretzel
    Well look at that bt34 sneaks in and http://i279.photobucket.com/albums/kk158/jenpics_2008/bump-2.gif crafty off 1st place.

    Next time I need to refrain from clicking links when I intend to do something else! Or at least click and read before I go afk. That nice little dreamy stroll to the mailbox has now put me in the hall of shame! lol 530 seconds! :D

    My first day's play was 528 secs and my second day was 706 secs - so you've got nothing to be ashamed about, but yes I would refrain from trips to the mailbox in the middle of the quiz!

    Well...truthfully..... if she called and I needed to go to the loo.. I don't see why not since it won't stop me from talking. They created cordless especially for that purpose :whistling:

We will have our Quiz master play off 930pm Tuesday 10th AEST ..... so start posting to get into the next quiz :w00t:.... and help the forum out that is looking a bit barren :D [/SIZE]
  • craftykiwi

    We used the local library ones last time we were on holiday and it didn't cost anything. Only downside there is if the library is open at the time you need it.
