You really really don't like simple :P


The simple version wasn't as much fun as the way I have done it, this scoring system was the easiest way of making it fair (other wise you would have been dividing by 4.7 or something silly like that)

Who's collecting the scores because I think I've just finished working out what I got on Malc's round.

Shazbat! I think I under scored myself on that round. In fact I know I did.

Turns out GJ's Now That's What I Call Music question was about the US version (which started in 1998).

I have come up with a concept for a quiz round, that will be so much work to make, but I think possibly even more work for the scorer!

You'll have to wait and see come Tuesday!

It's really quite impractical to do for an online quiz, but I am somehow going to make it work!

Dunno. I undertook my usual ritual of burning my answer paper at midnight.

I've just play tested my quiz round, with my eldest son and he thinks it's far too complicated and needlessly difficult, so it's going to need a few tweaks I think.

Presumably it needs tweaking to make it more complicated and needlessly difficult?

Second play test with my youngest son, he thinks it's a really good idea, really enjoyed it, but said it will be hard to mark though!

Sounds perfect to me!

Afraid I'm not around this evening. Happy to set up a room and mark it "start without host".

Nooo!

You off exploring Kern - or just fed up of Malc's increasingly complicated rounds? :DD

Haha :) Yes, I do recall him mentioning that now. Think my memory is on the blink.

Author:  Kern [ Tue Sep 22, 2020 12:11 ]
Post subject:  Re: BeeX Virtual Meet & Quiz

Yep! Although exploring is a good term as doing anything is an adventure these days.

Will post details in a bit.

Post subject:  Re: BeeX Virtual Meet & Quiz

I've set up a meeting and selected "join before host". Have no idea if this will work or if it allows screen sharing but give it a go.

Normal service will be resumed next week. Might even do a round.

It looks like that should work. I just joined it briefly to check.

I'm on, but it says host disabled participant screen sharing

which is less than ideal

Running late. Start without me

Ooops. Just checked and this setting isn't on the main meeting set-up page but under "Personal - settings" so I didn't catch it yesterday. Will remember this for future such sessions!

No problems in the end, we used Kovacs' zoom instead.

Not to worry, we set up a rogue meeting so Malc could baffle us with his beautifully crafted rounds.

The Vision, if you get asked about more weddings, it seems workers don't count as the 15.
