@Goddess Jasmine

Can you guys confirm if you are entering individually or together?

And can I also confirm that everyone that was on last night's quiz will be entering this? (I need to get a head start on my spreadsheets!)

Thanks

I've got a round for tomorrow, you lucky people.

Also, is there any chance we can extend the task deadlines to later in the week?

Me too. I had extra shifts and late finishes last week, so when I've not been at work I've been exhausted and not very active.

I've often toyed with trying Mafia over Zoom. This would need judicious use of the chat function when it comes to sending names to the GM.

That sounds like it could work. I imagine you'd all have to turn your cameras off and even mute yourselves at night but yeah, it could work.

Thanks! Appreciate everyone bearing with me whilst I got to grips with shiny new systems (and without those issues, the Cage might have been more recognisable). My average would have been better had I scored it just for composer or title.

Guys, I am going to need entries for the Task Malcster rounds soon. I have 3 entries from 1 person, and 2 entries from another at the moment.

If I don't have them by the end of Saturday, then we may need to postpone the round.

I've had two complete entries now, and two people have sent me some of their advanced entries. I'm going to need the rest very quickly if we're doing it this Tuesday!

Sorry about this, but I won’t be submitting an entry. I could use the excuses that I’ve been working overtime in the evenings and extra shifts over the weekend so have been tremendously tired when I eventually get home (which is true) and I’m on standby until 9pm every day this week, so may not be even home in time for the start of the quiz this Tuesday. There's also my lifetime trait of procrastination which means I do leave most things to the last minute anyway.

With good intentions I started trying the juggling last Wednesday, but couldn’t even continue with that due to an ongoing mobility problem I’m having with my right shoulder.

I know you’ve put a lot of effort in putting this together and I’m sorry not to be taking part.

I don't mind postponing the live section until next week, or even the new year if it makes it easier for people?

I mean there are three real options I guess.

1) Cancel the whole thing
2) Postpone until everyone's done something
3) Proceed with just a few people

I am not sure what the best course is.

Maybe postponing it until the new year? And I say that knowing full well Gaz has done our entries that are needed. (Good job I have him really.) It's a hectic time of year and selfishly, I personally might not be in any state to enjoy it on Tuesday anyway (mum's funeral is that morning).

Right,

I say we park this until next year then. (If everyone is okay with that) and then I'll make a decision in the new year if we'll go ahead and do it based on how many entries I get (It would be a real shame to drop it completely, but unless the majority have entries it will be a bit strange running the round)

Hi guys,

Could I be super cheeky and ask if you ever do media (music, for example) rounds in the quiz, and if so what platform(s) might work for that?

Reason being, I’m hoping to do a very small quiz with my brothers on Christmas evening as we’ve not seen them for a couple of years and obviously haven’t seen anyone at all this whole year. We’re just doing ten questions each, but I thought a music round would be fun, but I don’t know if it’s possible, but I did know where to ask.

We use zoom every week and it's dead easy. When you share your screen, there's an option to share your audio as well.

This means that the music you play will play on everyone's PC/phone/ipad etc so you'll all be hearing the same thing.,
